I hope you enjoy a nice LONG weekend! I’m heading to Cape Cod for a wedding, and I couldn’t be more excited. I haven’t been to the Cape since I was a little girl. I’m also excited for the road trip we have ahead of us, and the 17 hour music mix that Matt has expertly crafted. Matt, I know, is excited to eat his weight in lobster rolls and fried seafood, as I lovingly watch and cheer him on.

This weekend I am graduating from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. What a wonderful, life-changing experience its been. I’m sad for it to end and to not see my amazing group of IIN girls every month anymore. But it’s time to take all that I’ve learned and get to making people healthier and happier!
And just an update from Monday: I haven’t had one single cracker this week! AND–I have officially been sugar-free (regular sugar and artificial sweeteners) for over 3 weeks now. I have NOT had even one instance of binging or nighttime foraging (picture a squirrel going through the pantry-that was me). Binging was a weekly (or often multiple times a week) event for me, and it’s amazing that it seemed to be directly correlated to my sugar intake. I feel alert, clear headed, and stable, although Matt might think otherwise. It’s seriously a miracle. Hooray for me!
