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

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 

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”

Fit-shaming

Because No Group Left Behind, Right? For a while now, a coworker has been commenting on how healthy my lunches always are and has asked me multiple times 1) if I'm a vegetarian 2) why I eat healthfully if I'm already skinny and 3) if I eat like that all the time. The day before… Continue reading Fit-shaming
