here. NOW.

Well, i did it!  Although i don't believe in new years' resolutions, I'm committing to a "path", my journey for ... as long as i bloody well feel like it!  Correction -- as long as i think it holds promise.  :-)

Lots of spurs led me here, not least of which was the book i began reading last night, The Flinch, by Julien Smith (thank you for introducing it, Richard!).  I realize how much my life has been formed by "pain avoidance".  My biggest character fault, i believe, is a lack of self-confidence, keeping me from leaping whole-heartedly into a lot of different things, from hobbies to life-significant pursuits.  I won't go into details about how i think i LOST said confidence....

Suffice it to say, i'm ready to leap NOW.  This blog is part of it.  Another part is, i started Chris Kresser's Personal Paleo Code program this morning.  I'm going to be PERFECT for a solid month.  No dairy, no liquor, no soda....  I suspect that cheese will call my name the loudest.

So i'm committing myself publicly, here.  NOW.


  1. Tess, I am really excited for you and am looking forward to following your journey!

    I don't have a Kindle but I've looked up a short piece by that author -

    sounds like the kick in the pants I need, too!

    Cheers! Here's to a wonderful 2012.

  2. thanks, Steph! i'll check out the link you posted. did you know, you can download the "kindle for pc" application for free on the amazon site -- i don't have a kindle, either.

  3. I did not know that, thanks!
