I am alive. That’s what I’ve been thinking about the past few weeks. I am alive. But more than that – I am living. There have been times in my life when I didn’t feel I was being my truest self. I think most of them were happening in high school and really, at that […]
I tracked extensively from June 2014 to June 2017. I tracked on and off from July 2017 to August 2018. I primarily used My Fitness Pal, but I also found myself journaling my meals on and off in 2017 and 2018. It wasn’t just about writing down the macronutrients or the calories, it was also […]
I go back and forth on a lot of topics because each side of the fence has pros and cons. This one isn’t easy for me to talk about because I do find myself juggling ideas and sometimes volleying. Ripping off the band aid is the best way to start. Diet Culture and Body Positive […]

Words are such a tricky thing. We say actions speak louder than words, but I feel like sometimes we hold onto words more tightly. They may be quieter, but they linger. I think about words often. The ones I say to myself. The ones I say loudly, the ones I say quietly. The ones I […]
I get kind of pissed about the conversations I see online about diet and weight loss and size. These conversations are coming from all kinds of people – not just those in the health and fitness industries. What makes me pissed or frustrated is the lack of context and the blanket statements. Rarely, do “conversations” […]
When Shannon said she wanted us to do something nice for ourselves and tell her about it, I don’t think she had this in mind. Shannon or @liftinglawyer turned 31 yesterday. Her only request was to be selfish and do something just for you and then tell her about it. I know it’s an odd […]
