Weight loss journey

I've been neglecting this blog, and I regret it. I miss writing about health and wellness, etc.

The truth is, I haven't really felt healthy. I've gained weight since moving back to the U.S. Now that it's spring, my appetite has gone down and my physical activity has gone up. I'll keep you posted.

Anyway, I am going to chronicle my weight loss journey in this blog.

Do you own a boat or wish you did? Maritime supplies and technology are important especially if you spend long periods of time out at sea. Chart plotters, gps systems, computers, etc are an essential part of the equipment you need.

Now that the summer is just around the corner, it is time to start working on getting our boats in great condition, including the right equipment.

Been to the doctor?

With all the vioxx lawsuits happening, are you afraid to go to the doctor for fear that you will end up on a drug that is harmful? Don't be afraid, just make sure you do your research before you accept any form of treatment. Drug companies do make public any information of side effects. If you are prepared to accept the risks, then by all means take your doctor's suggestions. If not, there is always a more natural way. As an herbalist I know there is always a plant or lifestyle change or both that can help.

Wedding Season

With spring comes the wedding season. The weather is gorgeous and in a few weeks the flowers will be in full bloom. I can't wait. Is your wedding coming up? Here are some wedding reception ideas that will help you plan.

If you live in a climate that hardly has rain, consider having the reception outside. You can also have it at your home, at the beach, or at a traditional hall. For advice you may want to consult a wedding planner.
