I hope I never find someone who loves me like you

Growing up in the 90s, I think there are a lot of us that think back or sing back to songs and realize that the lyrics are not what we remember. First song that come to mind…Five’s When the Light’s Go Out. Second song – Spice Girls’ Wannabe. Third song – Backstreet Boys’ As Long […]

Opting out

It’s Mental Health Awareness Month. Mother’s Day is this month. The BBQ’s start. The pools will open. The sun is finally staying around longer than sunrise. I know that what I’m about to talk about isn’t a privilege for everyone for one reason or another. It’s not lost on me when I talk about mental […]

What is HAES anyway?

“Health: As officially defined by the World Health Organization, a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Since coming back on Instagram one thing I’ve noticed more – and it could just be the strength in the voice – is how more people are talking about […]

Give yourself some context

I’ve talked about this idea a few times, but I don’t think it ever hurts to revisit it. “I could tell you my adventures – beginning from this morning,” Alice said a little timidly; “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” I love this quote so much, […]

Pour the gasoline and light a match

I had always been told not to burn bridges – you never know when you want to cross them again. You know what, I’m not really sure I ever really want to. I think there are a lot of us that think about our past relationship or past goals and yeah, maybe we consider them, […]

12 hours

I like to think about the bigger picture. I like to look ahead. There’s so much time ahead to move through. Sometimes when I look back, time feels longer than it actually is (or was)and that’s just odd, but I’m sure you’ve felt the same. There are other times that I feel like I’m losing […]

Food Journaling Update – Day 24

Twenty-four days into food journaling and there’s definitely some things I’m noticing. One, I definitely got comfortable with grains again. I don’t think this is a problem, but like I mentioned the last time, I’m having to make an effort to get in green vegetables more than I ever had before, but it’s getting easier. […]

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 […]

Is that healthy?

There’s an intersection, however, where our “what’s healthy” meets misconception and departs down an extreme path.

most foods aren’t inherently unhealthy, but sometimes the concern is what else is being paired with the food, so let’s look at how you make French toast.
