What Happened One Week After the Sugar Fast

April 6, 2018 | Danielle | Health | 0

Guys – I feel like I should tell you something. On Monday, I chose to go back on the sugar fast. Yes, you read that right. I opted-in to depriving myself of sugar outside of the 45-day challenge, beyond the bounds of Lent. I had an amazing Easter weekend and it was full of the…

A Monumental Week – Day 36

March 21, 2018 | Danielle | Health | 4

When I decided to blog throughout my sugar fast, I had two guesses about how this would go. One has come true, and the other has not. I first guessed keeping up with daily blogs would be a challenge throughout March. Three different big events in three different cities (like the PGA tournament in Arizona,…

City of Stars – Day 25

March 10, 2018 | Danielle | Health | 0

I’ve been in Los Angeles this week – the city of angels to some, the city of dreams and stars to others. No matter how you view Los Angeles, there’s a few things everyone can seem to agree upon: The palm trees are beautiful. The traffic is horrible. It’s a city full of dreamers. I…

Back to Biscuit Baking – Day 20

March 5, 2018 | Danielle | B's Kitchen, Health | 0

Yesterday, I baked again. It felt glorious. No, I didn’t break my sugar fast (although the banana coconut cream pie at the birthday party last night almost did me in). But yesterday morning, I broke out the sterling silver measuring cups. I got down the powdery white flour. I cut in some cold butter. I…

Crash – Day 16

March 1, 2018 | Danielle | Health | 0

Most parents are all too familiar with the phenomenon called the “sugar crash.” You give the kids a ton of sugar, they go crazy running circles around you, and then soon – they’re completely out. They go from high to low in a very short amount of time. That’s probably a good way to describe…

Tour of Champions – Day 15

February 28, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer | 1

Up until today I’d never walked on a golf course (which is funny since today set quite a high bar for any future times I will walk on the green)! I’ve been in Tucson the past two days with Fight Colorectal Cancer to help launch us into March – which is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.…

Perfectly Imperfect – Day 13

February 26, 2018 | Danielle | Faith, Health | 0

For all of the type As out there – I am sorry. I skipped a day. There was no Day 12 post yesterday. I was too tired to write last night. A fun, but full, weekend had me under the covers before 10 p.m. and my eyelids were so heavy, I could hardly make it…

Cold Turkey – Day 11

February 25, 2018 | Danielle | Health | 0

Today I sat in an ice cream shop without any ice cream in my hands. When all I wanted was to grab a scone from the coffee shop to help me wake up this morning, I held back. There’s candy in my freezer tempting me each time I open it. I can’t hardly walk into…

Who Are the Joneses Anyway? – Day 10

February 23, 2018 | Danielle | Faith, Health | 0

Have I mentioned I’m in the throes of writing a memoir? (I know – there’s a lot happening in my world right now.) As I write and reflect on the stories of my life, there’s a constant theme I keep running into:  comparison. I’ve taken big humbling gulps as I’ve uncovered the massive amount of…
