Well dang, long time no see guys. Sorry to go all radio silence on ya, but sometimes a girl just needs a break. Not the kind of break where you take a lazy day to stay in bed and watch Gossip Girl with a container of coconut ice cream (although I have been doing that), but the kind where you regroup and just generally reassess what in the actual heck is going on in your life.
I’m gonna be pretty frank with you guys, and say that this winter kicked my butt. Not only did I get those winter blues pretty hard, but somehow my autoimmune disease got real outta wack for no reason. I found myself struggling with daily migraines, feeling crazy lethargic, and struggling with the worst brain fog I think I’ve ever experienced. Making The Gold Sister a priority really wasn’t a possibility when I could barely function.
In the last month or so, I attempted an elimination diet, and almost immediately realize my health trigger was dairy. Y’all, I’ve never been more bummed and excited at the same time, but who needs cheese?! In cutting out dairy (adding to the gluten I’ve already been avoiding), I’ve visibly seen my body bloat go down, and felt a mental change. While I may not be 100% yet, I figure according to my own mantra (I shared that almost a year ago!), ya gotta start somewhere!
I’m sure you’ve realized by how often this bag accompanies me, but this Sticks+Stones Leel moto is seriously my go to. And don’t forget, if you use my PROMO CODE “THEGOLDSISTER” at checkout for Sticks+Stones you can get 15% off.
A special derp photo, because I missed y’all.
