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

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 

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 

Smart Shopping

Tips to fill your fridge for less! "Eating health doesn't have to be expensive!" I'm sure you've heard that load of bullshit before. But after one haul of 20lbs of veggies and organic meat, you'll know that is far from the truth. I saved all of my receipts from every food shopping trip during my… Continue reading Smart Shopping
