Design Story

As part of my zone 00 work I’ve been focusing on different aspects of my life, especially how I might make my body healthier and feel better. I’ve been a sugar addict all my life. I’ve been sugar-free for a handful of short and extended periods over the years. I have a dream of waking up one morning and living my day being entirely addiction free, and then keeping on doing that again, and again, to live a clearer, healthier, more balanced life. This is part of that journey. I find myself carrying more weight than I need, since having my baby 5 years ago, and finding it difficult to shift the weight. I know the extra weight is tied into my habits around sugar, as well as the issues I’m  in my peri-menopausal body. So, hopefully, attending to my sugar troubles and using food and herbs to balance my hormones will free me up to lose the excess.
