Going On The Low-FODMAP Diet? (Thinking Out Loud)

I mentioned in a recent post that I’ve been experiencing some very discouraging stomach discomfort as of late. Well, really, I’ve been experiencing strange stomach discomfort for I’d say three years now, but because my discomfort has never been what I considered “IBS” – I struggle with more “tightness” rather than bowel distress – I never thought my problems had anything to do with digestion. Or food at…

Thankful For The Women I Have In My Life (Week In Review)

You know, life is a hard thing.  It can be really, really hard. For many numerous and varying reasons. It doesn’t matter our history, our health, our financial status etc etc…. each one of us will and does have our own set of struggles or heart breaks or barriers to cross.  So when I come across people in my life who perform these – even miniature sized – acts of kindness, and give over a…

Week In Review: Family, Journaling and Feeding the Artistic Baby

Hi friends, I’m back with my Week In Review this week. Not sure what’s going on? Go see Meg and she’ll tell you all about it.    Last week I did a number of things for my creative soul. Aka my very hungry, high maintenance artistic baby that’s in consistent need of feeding.  I went to a coaching with a past instructor for a form of movement work that leaves…

The Eight Best Cinnamon Buns In Toronto

Alright so I may be all “homemade ghee! homemade sourdough! bone broth! grass fed! avocado!”.… but I am still the same girl who has a special love. A love that I would never, ever replace or cheat on. A love that will forever rise above any of these other hooligan health “things…” That, my friends, is my love for cinnamon buns.  Give me all the granola-coconut-oil-sprulina-acai-smoothie choices…

My Journey With Hypothalamic Amenorrhea Continues: Digestion and Traditional Chinese Medicine

My journey with hypothalamic amenorrhea continues.  My journey recovering from an eating disorder… continues. Even though I can say with utmost certainty that my eating is in a good place, restriction is few and far between, and my mental space for self love is better than its ever been, I still struggle with low body weight and zero menstrual cycle.  You know, sometimes when you’ve been dealing with these things for so many years, you…

Week In Review: Getting Out Of The Mess

Oh man you guys Last week was messy. Messy messy messy. It was just…really busy…I guess. Since being back from home, I’ve worked nearly every day. Eight days in a row. Ontop of that, it is now the beginning of the Toronto Fringe Festival, so in addition to opening my own show and fitting in my performances around my work schedule, I’ve been scheduling in where I can get out to…

Week In Review: Time At Home

Hi lovely friends, Last week, to relive all the good feelings, I recapped my brother’s wedding. I didn’t have a chance to talk much more about my time at home, though. I don’t want to let the visit go by without documenting some of the life-giving accomplishments that were had during this time, so I’m using this week’s Week In Review to go back and relive some…

A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

Week In Review: What Makes You Feel Productive?

You know when life feels tough, even the smallest of things can feel like milestones? That was definitely a feeling I had a number of times last week. Sometimes the most simple tasks take even more effort to get out and do. Get me to feel accomplished about commuting to three appointments in one day?… mmm, maybe. But getting to the store to buy toothpaste? Bam. I deserve a throne.  What made me feel bad ass productive last…
