National Coffee Day!!


Something you should know about me, I LOVE my coffee.


It gets me going every morning and gives me a pick-me-up when I really need a push to get through the day and I seriously don't function well without it. 

So much so, it's kind of become a running joke with my family and friends.
In fact, my best friend, Miss Courtney, would greet me at the door in silence with a cup of coffee if I'd been up late the night before.
She gets me.

I'm drinking some now as I type this.

When I started Intermittent Fasting, I was relieved to find that I didn't have to give up my coffee. I just had to switch to unsweetened and black, which wasn't too big of a deal, because I had completed a sugar detox a couple years before discovering IF.

Through the detox, I became somewhat taste-sensitive to sugar where, depending on the food item, a little was almost too much for me anymore. As a result, my coffee was mainly just a little bit of cream anyway.

It makes me appreciate them all that much more.


Or if I'm needing a little extra something or fighting tummy issues and whatnot, I consult my resident Essential Oil encyclopedia, (thanks Courtney), and add a drop or two of orange, peppermint, ginger, or cinnamon bark, to name a few, to my cup o' joe and help aid my body in getting back to good again...


Coffee is definitely one of my favorite things and today just so happens to be National Coffee Day!!


So, if you're a coffee-holic like myself, or just enjoy the occasional cup... 
And sip your way through the weekend with me!
Cheers,
Carly

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
