YOU ARE NOT A PROJECT
Wednesday, March 20, 2019      4 comments

learning to love my physical features
Saturday, March 09, 2019      6 comments

As a toddler, I couldn’t play dress up in the princess dresses my sister, best friend or her sister fit into easily. My arms and back were always too big. I was in elementary school when I was teased for having big teeth. I was in high school... Read more
gluten free and dairy free me
Wednesday, March 06, 2019      7 comments

I hate to admit it. I feel so much better when I stay away from gluten and dairy. And I know it’s controversial and I get that it’s one of those topics where people will say how gluten sensitivity isn’t a thing and dairy isn’t inflammatory BUT... Read more

Wednesday, February 27, 2019      2 comments

Raise your hand if you’re an emotional eater like me! Bad day? Wine! Good day? Pizza! Lazy day? Chicken nuggets! Hormonal? Ice cream and chocolate! It’s not a secret; emotions can be tied to food. And I am really good at eating my emotions. ... Read more

nothing good comes from hate
Saturday, February 16, 2019      4 comments

I had a roller coaster of a week. During the lows I really struggled with negative, depressed thoughts. I was looking in the mirror calling myself fat. I was picking myself apart and destroying my self confidence. I was constantly thinking how I... Read more
looking for the silver lining
Friday, February 15, 2019      7 comments

I own resistance bands but never used them. I loved the idea of a lower impact workout with bands. An easy workout at home! So perfect! But I never did the exercises. I figured they couldn’t be very effective. I struggle with at home workouts ... Read more
