Hi readers! I was recently contacted by some nice folks at Healthline.com and they have some exciting news to share. From May 16 to July 1, 2012 Healthline.com is teaming up with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to help raise money to find a cure. I checked out the Healthline website and they have general information on various conditions and illnesses such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis as well as interesting articles on healthy living and various other topics. If you're in need of some information, this is a pretty good place to start! I wish a site like this was around when I was newly diagnosed, it would've saved me hours of searching for answers on my own when I had no idea where to look! Please show your support by sending a donation. Even if its only a dollar you can spare, we'll be closer to a cure! (If you can be more generous, even better!) Hooray!

Hey dudes! I figured it was time to start blogging again. After a long hiatus, getting some life stuff straight, and thinking a lot about what to focus on, it was time to start doing something. So... here I am! When I started this project I didn't have a clear focus on what this was about. I thought I was a food blogger, simply because I liked food. Then I thought I was an Ulcerative Colitis blogger, but I hated reliving the bad moments of my life. Without a clear idea, this project ended up being way complicated than I thought. I lost my passion. I lost my focus. But I still wanted to do good and make a difference. The only way I knew how to approach it was slowly and to track my progress and somehow make it there. Even though I was confused, I did know what I did not want for myself. I don't want to be known as "sick girl", which is what I privately labeled myself for many years. It was the negative attitude and thoughts is what kept me from moving on. Ulcerative Colitis is still a very painful topic for me. I have had this illness for eight years and it still brings tears to my eyes when I think about how helpless I was. I'm not that person anymore. Its time to move on! I want my blog and videos to be about a lifestyle change. A shift on how to become positive and become your best self through positive thought, exercise, and balance despite all of the challenges (ehem... Ulerative Colitis). I'm going to share my journey on I'll get there! Let's go!
