So far so good :-)

Well!!!!!  I have made it a little over a month with nearly no sugar! I say “nearly” because my fruits contain sugar but at least its the good kind of sugar. I am impressed by my success thus far to be honest and I intend to keep it going till the next Holiday (that will be my excuse to have whatever for the moment).

Oh but wait! I have allowed myself some dark chocolate to honor Valentines day of course. It’s tradition to enjoy a little chocolate on that sweet, sweet day of love ( what an excuse, but a good one). HA!

Really cutting out, or cutting back on sugar has helped me feel better. I have been experiencing with eliminating certain foods that cause a reaction to my epidermis. I also believe that certain foods cause inflammation within my body. For example, strawberries and tomatoes, although I love them, cause my face to breakout or become red. Certain foods make me very bloated, like onions for instance. I have no idea why but they do. Also I LOVE cheese but that too makes me bloated. I am testing out goat cheese…… That’s still on trial. LOL

I think the best thing I could do is cut out, or cut WAY BACK on sugar. That has no doubt made a difference. I do believe everything in moderation but right now I have been in serious need of a semi detox, if I may call it that, from sugar. That has been my main goal. As I mentioned earlier, I intend to stay on track!

Update on my mandolin playing……. well lets just say I’m still playing!! LOL. Actually, I really do enjoy it and wish I could dedicate more time to practice. I think I could be good at this. Ok, you can be good at anything if you’re dedicated. Family, kids, bf, life, blah, blah, blah….. right?! Doesn’t matter, I’m not giving up. It just may take me longer to get to where I want to be that’s all.

I am now learning “La Donna E Mobile”. The easy version… haha. That’s progress!

Happy Valentines Day!

Live, love, honor, and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.




About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
