#ThisIs30 – I’m so glad that I’m here

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 […]


Meal tracking: 12 days in

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 got ahead of myself

16 days. And then a decade gone. It’s so weird to think about being here. As a teenager there were days I didn’t think I could wake up again. I don’t know if I’ve felt that same way since, although I know there were times that I thought about death and dying. As adults, there […]

Listening to this talk all over again got me thinking – all of the talks do, but this one pushed a button.

Weight of words

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 […]

Context is key: dieting and lifestyle change

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” […]

It’s not just a cup of coffee

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 […]
