Dreaming of the Day When…

Dreaming of the Day When…

You’ve been dreaming of the day when you drop 2 sizes, lose 10 pounds, and are finally happy with your body. The day you can really look in the mirror and say “heck yea, my body is awesome!” How long have you been waiting for that day to arrive? And how long have you been struggling with “falling off the wagon”, starting over, and getting focused on a new goal to finally achieve what you really want? So often, we live our lives focused on our next weight-loss goal. It’s the holidays and we promise we will eat healthy after

To-Do List Too Long? Try This (Hint: It’s Something You Do All The Time!)

To-Do List Too Long? Try This (Hint: It’s Something You Do All The Time!)

When we get so wrapped up in our to-do’s, life can become a series of never-ending things we need to check off our lists. It’s impossible to get everything done and easy to get overwhelmed. Here is what was on my “Things to Do Today” List: (Note: I’m trying to pack 492093 things into my week before I leave for a vaca to St. Thomas-woohoo!)   Work tasks (17 to be exact) 2 meetings (my opinion of meetings=pointless 90% of the time) Stop at Target and Walgreens (stock up on toiletries) Dentist appointment (why would I schedule this for the day

Are Your “Food Rules” Holding You Back?

Are Your “Food Rules” Holding You Back?

Oh, those sneaky little food rules we have for ourselves. They can creep up on us when we least expect it.  I can’t eat after 7 pm  I have to have a salad for lunch during the work week  I am allowed to eat cereal only on weekends Or my favorite… (because I totally do it all the time) If I eat the icing from the cake, it doesn’t really count. So often, we live by these food rules we’ve made for ourselves; they’ve become such a habit that we aren’t even aware that they aren’t serving us!  When we actually

Love Yourself Now (Not 10 Pounds From Now)

Love Yourself Now (Not 10 Pounds From Now)

I know when you’re battling your weight, it’s hard to believe that anyone can love you at the weight you are. And I know the whole “just love and accept your body” culture is MUCH easier said than done. I want to tell you some things about this I wish someone had told me (but first a little story…) I remember when I got back from living in Ecuador for a year. I left thin. I came back fat. Well, in my mind, I was huge, but really I was only about 15-20 pounds heavier.  I was embarrassed of my

Tired of Always “Starting Over” on Monday?

Tired of Always “Starting Over” on Monday?

We’ve all been there. You do so good during the week and then go crazy with the pizza, apps, desserts, and “I’d like fries with that” on the weekends. Then, come Monday, you promise yourself that this, seriously, is the day you are going to gain control of your eating. Inevitably, though, something comes up–a happy hour, a feast in the office break room, a dessert after dinner–that sends you down that “oh crap, I blew it, and now I’m gonna eat everything that I haven’t been allowed to have all week.” Which then leads to another blown week of

Convinced That Everything Would Be Better If You Were Skinnier?

Convinced That Everything Would Be Better If You Were Skinnier?

Yep, I also used to think that everything would be better if I was skinnier. It was like being thin was the be-all, end-all solution to every single problem I had. Here is what I thought would happen when I finally achieved “skinniness”: -I would be able to handle my emotions and not get worked up over things. -I would be more relaxed and go with the flow. -I would love my job and not feel anxious going to work. -I would not feel like a lost, wanderlust-ing soul wanting to quit my job and travel all the time. -I
