Fit to Fat and Back Again… And Again… And Again.

Does this sound familiar?  You go balls to the wall eating all of the #health and morphing yourself in the gym into a beautiful, muscular butterfly only to destroy your hard work in one week after you decide to "treat yourself". One look in the mirror and YIKES you're back to where you started! So… Continue reading Fit to Fat and Back Again… And Again… And Again.

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.

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 

W30 Days 7-8: Throwing in the Dish Towel 

Day 7- Today was the most "kill all the things" day I've had yet, between this round and my failed attempt in April. In fact, this is similar to how I felt the day I quit last time and shoved my face deep into a chocolate cake under a table at work. My stomach was… Continue reading W30 Days 7-8: Throwing in the Dish Towel 

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 

Whole30 Tips

There are a laundry list of things I could go on and on about, some of them I have even covered in a previous blog (see Smart Shopping). Here are some Whole30 specific tips I have found helpful during my last round, and the list will grow as I get deeper into the remaining 27… Continue reading Whole30 Tips
