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 

Does Not Work(out) Well With Others 

When I see a group of 3 girls at the gym, I can always tell who's idea it was to coordinate this workout. It's similar to Goldilocks and the 3 bears. They are all using the same set of 5lb dumbbells, 20lb straight bar and light resistance band. However, there's one of them who was… Continue reading Does Not Work(out) Well With Others 

No One Cares What You Ate For Dinner 

I'm not exactly sure when it became such a social media normality to post pictures of an aesthetic meal before you dig in. Imagine 20 years ago sitting down for a romantic dinner for two at a dimly lit restaurant. You scan the menu and pick a meal that sounds like it would be decently… Continue reading No One Cares What You Ate For Dinner 

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”

Barbie Was Right

My Life In Plastic Here is the FULL story of my breast augmentation experience. If you don't care to read about the "before" stuff and just want to get to the meat & potatoes of the post (the prep, surgery and recovery) feel free to skip down to the next excerpt after the intro headed… Continue reading Barbie Was Right

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

Just For One Day

What would happen if just for one day women accepted themselves for who they are instead of trying to become someone they're not? All cliché quotes aside, really think about what would happen. Sephora would go bankrupt. Usually buzzing with women picking apart their caked faces in front of a magnifying mirror, there would be… Continue reading Just For One Day
