You Are Enough Blog Series: Post 9″I Am Not What I Eat”

Last week was Thanksgiving and it’s the first holiday that I wasn’t eating in a deficit. First real holiday. It was the first time I wasn’t paranoid about what was going on my plate, but I still asked ahead what was on the menu. That’s how I plan and those in my life know that, […]

You Are Enough Blog Series: Post 8 “I’m Not Just Helping Them With Their Goals, I’m Testing My Own”

This past week was top notch. It was the best week in a while. If I’m going to be honest, it’s probably the best I’ve felt, behaved and went about my day since August. I’m starting to feel more clear headed and I think I’m finally figuring out my place. I’m figuring out how I’m […]

You Are Enough Blog Series: Post 6 “I Guess I Didn’t Know What It Was Like To Have That Much Love In My Life”

I was texting with my friend Ali this morning about our visit yesterday.

It’s Your Turn Series: Post 10 “A Fight Worth Fighting”

There have been quite a few who have reached out to share their stories and how mental health has impacted them, their families and what they believe to be their ability to be a mother. We know that events trigger us to develop these disorders we’ve been talking about in this series, but I don’t […]

It’s Your Turn Series: Post 9 “Scarlet Letter”

October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It was also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I’m sure there’s a third cause out there that was also supposed to be highlighted and educate the public. I will not downplay that both of these causes are important. 1 in 8 women are impacted by breast cancer. 1 in 3 […]
