The Thoughts You Can’t Turn Off 

Hey hi hello, long time no blog! This has been something I have kept bottled up for a few weeks (hence my lack of Insta-ing) and I. Can. Not. Suppress it. Any. Longer. I've been watching from the shadows as social media has become a place to purge personal problems and I'll just cut the bullshit… Continue reading The Thoughts You Can’t Turn Off 

I Ain’t No Follow Back Girl

"You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with." - Jim Rohn  If that quote is true, it explains my incessant desire for a nap and the need to be praised with food... because two out of the five people are actually a small cat and a giant dog. But what if… Continue reading I Ain’t No Follow Back Girl

Priorities and Choices

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you only do it when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses- only results." - Ken Blanchard I used to be one of those annoying people who would check-in to the gym on Facebook at 5am with some… Continue reading Priorities and Choices

Slave 4 U 

Long time no talk, frandsss! This is just going to just be a little ramble-y bit (again) about the scale and why it's a mindfuck and a half to weigh yourself every day... like I do... for no reason.  One of the rules I never touched on from the whole30 is that you can NOT… Continue reading Slave 4 U 

Fed Up 

I live my life in black and white. Right and wrong. Absolutely and never.  All or nothing.  There is no sometimes or maybes, always a hard yes or a definitive no. And when it comes to food, that perspective is tenfold. I'm a bad person with no self control when I eat a calorie dense… Continue reading Fed Up 

Trendy Diets 

While I think it's great that the general population has started to care about heath and nutrition and exercise, I must give my two cents- would you expect anything different from me? It's almost as if the popularity of documentaries such as "Vegucated", "What the Health", "Sugar Coated" and "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" have… Continue reading Trendy Diets 

Mindful Eating: The “WHAT”, “WHY” and “HOW”

Mindful eating is the practice of being completely present while eating food and using all of your senses to experience the food itself. During my therapy session yesterday, we talked about how disconnected I can be when it comes to my eating habits and how my hunger cues have been completely destroyed from binge eating… Continue reading Mindful Eating: The “WHAT”, “WHY” and “HOW”

Netflix and No Chill

My Review of the Netflix Original Movie "To The Bone" This shouldn't have to even mentioned, but if you or someone you know is displaying the signs of an eating disorder there are several numbers to call for help and places to go to seek treatment. The Netflix Original movie "To The Bone" was released… Continue reading Netflix and No Chill

Identity Crisis

If you're here from the 'gram, hey hi hello friend. Welcome back! Today I wanted to talk about why and how my content on Instagram may be changing from super-fitspo-health girl to happy-balanced-foodie girl who *sometimes* goes to the gym. The past week has been ROUGH, mentally and physically. I've been slacking on my "diet"… Continue reading Identity Crisis

A Second Slice of Cake is NOT a Binge

The Difference Between a Binge and a Large Meal I want to start this post off with the by-the-book definition of binge eating from the National Eating Disorder website. Binge eating disorder is a severe, life-threatening and treatable eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of eating large quantities of food (often very quickly and to… Continue reading A Second Slice of Cake is NOT a Binge
