Earlier this month, a few close friends helped me celebrate three months symptom free--REMISSION--from my Lyme disease! It was such a good weekend! I'm so grateful to have such wonderful people in my life who have been there for me through the good and the bad!

Remission with Lyme is a precarious thing; the rug could be pulled out from under my feet again at any time, and that is a scary thing, but I choose not to dwell on that. My goal is to keep my body and my immune system in tip-top shape. I am not a morning person, but I'm learning to use the mornings in way to set a positive tone for the rest of my day.

I start off each day with a healthy breakfast--usually steel cut oats with blueberries, and I wash it down with a kombucha in a fancy glass. Steel cut oats take about 20 minutes to cook, so after I've checked on our pet Sea-Monkeys (!!!), I use the rest of the 20 minutes to hula hoop, my favorite way to exercise. I can't emphasize what a big difference exercising in the mornings has made in my day. I have so much more energy the rest of the day.

If I'm not careful what I eat, I pay for it: My muscles ache so badly and I feel very lethargic.I have such a sweet tooth, and trying to keep my sugar consumption under control has been my biggest hurdle. I've been trying to use my juicer at least a few times a week.

I'm still going to keep blogging even though I'm in remission, but probably less frequently. I wish you all the best!
