Four years ago, I started this blog to share my food and fitness journey as I navigated chronic pain no one could identify and a correlating weight gain I just couldn’t shake. My goal was to share my recipes and workouts so anyone wanting to follow along could do so. About halfway through grad school, I lost my way. I was swamped with school, working full-time, and giving myself very little space for self-care. This past September I finally got a name for my muscle pain (for those following along, that’s over six years since my pain started) and despite a concrete diagnosis and an excellent support system in The Boyfriend, I still never really got my shit together. I guess what I’m trying to say is yes, I lost my purpose for a while, but I’m on a mission to find it again and finally make some longterm progress. I’m back and I’m here to stay.
Stick around for lots of new slow carb and paleo recipes and some of my workout routines as I try to gain back the strength my disease has tried to wrangle away from me. Be sure to follow along on Instagram and/or Facebook for weekly meal plans, workouts, and cooking demos plus updates on my adventures with Glycogen Storage Disease Type VII.
