Food alergies, No more cane sugar

I've done it!
I've cut cane sugar out of my diet for 30days. That was intense.
After a food allergy test came back with a big NO to cane sugar, soy, rice, cows milk, wheat, bakers yeast and a handful of other common foods, the hubby helped me make the needed changes to my diet. Its been a little more than 30 days now and it has definitely made a difference.

I did find cane sugar supplements; maple candy, stevia chocolate (Lilly's Sweets) and making homemade frozen yogurt pops.

My love for cheese is not an occasional indulgent of goats cheese. Yum!

I don't want the rest of the household to not be able to eat the things I cannot. It is still challenging to watch my kids enjoy a pint of ice cream or the occasional pizza, I generally excuse myself from the room while they indulge. But, while I get ready to head off on a work trip to Monterey, CA they plan on a few "sometimes" foods that Mom can't eat; pizza, sushi, donuts, etc. Now the challenge of traveling…

A great Geek Week

Under all my attempts at being outdoors, riding bikes and being a Mom/Wife I have always been (and always will be) a "Geek".  Star Wars, comic books, sci-fi, fantasy movies and books. I love it all and I have passed down some of this love onto my hubby and kids. Go me!

Independent Comic Book Expo (PIX), Tekkoshocon, new Rogue (#Rouge.. that's so funny) One trailer and a new Fantastic Beast and Where to find them trailer. Needless to say the past two weeks have been good.

At PIX I got to meet Grace Ellis, co creator of the Lumberjanes comic book and very nice individual. And, I meet Caitlin Rose Boyle co-creator or Jonesy. It is always great to meet women in an industry where women are under-represented. Both of these ladies, along with quite a few others, are really setting the tone that women in comic books are here to stay. And as I complimented both of them for creating a comic book that I will let my kids read.


Last weekend I took my Japanese language taking, anime an…

April 30 Days of Biking

Image
The 30days of biking challenge is a pledge to ride for everyday in April. With a co-workers encouragement I decided to join the challenge. 

For those of us who dislike winter and do not ride over the the cold months (like me!), this is a great way to get back on the bike and be in better shape for warmer riding months ahead. Of course here in western PA on May 5, it is flurrying...


It doesn't matter where you ride, how long, etc. Just go out for a nice little ride everyday this month.

After over a year of on and off foot problems and minimal winter activity I feel better just riding these last few days. My hope is that in 30-days I will feel like a champ and be ready for some long distance riding and mountain biking.


Follow me on Instagram as I attempt to complete the #30daysofbiking challenge, I hope that it will encourage other folks to get outside and do the same.
