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 

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

W30 Days 1/2: The Headache 

W30 Day 1:  Still quite unsure what came over me this morning as I reached for a Lara Bar instead of a bagel and a Diet Coke. Perhaps I was possessed, or my brain had been hijacked by Robb Wolf. Either way, I went to work without a lunch which forced me into decision making… Continue reading W30 Days 1/2: The Headache
