Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes

IMG_0246

Something is amiss in Denmark… or something like that! So many changes have happened in my life since I started this blog, and more are yet to come, I’m sure. But rather than bore with all those details (well, I will share the most exciting change – I got married! yay!), I invite you to […]

Stop the Hate Talk – About Yourself

I don’t know if I’m more in tune to this happening around me because I very consciously try not to do this to myself anymore, or if women are just becoming more vocal, but women are being mean…to themselves. If we can’t respect ourselves or treat ourselves kindly, how can we expect anyone else to? […]

Taking A Spiritual Turn

When I first started this blog, I had all intentions of sharing and writing about all things health and wellness, but especially as it related to weight-management and fitness. Somewhere along the line, this blog morphed into something that became merely educational or instructional, and I felt like it was missing ME – well me […]

Black History Month: Michelle Obama

February is not only Black History Month, but it is American Heart Month. Most of you are aware that obesity and heart disease are closely linked. Well, this year I choose to celebrate someone I consider a hero making strides to eliminate childhood obesity, and ultimately reduce future rates of heart disease – Michelle Obama. […]

Letting the Silence

I was going to post another recipe today but I’m going to talk instead about a recent struggle I’ve been going through and the power of silencing the “chatter.” There’s been a lot of chatter in my brain recently, especially last week – debilitating chatter. With the exception of nearly halting my forward progress, it’s […]

Old Triggers, New Disguises

High-Fructose Corn Syrup: Why Aren’t We Upset That it is IN There?

Someone recently told me that they didn’t approve of something being banned in order to make people adopt healthy behaviors/be healthy, in this case High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Let’s talk about that. HFCS is a manufactured food product not found in a natural state. HFCS became popular in the 1980’s and is used in […]

The Chicken Wins

Sometime late last year, I became aware that I was eating a lot of meat – chicken, turkey and beef, cuz I don’t eat pork. I realized that I was getting anxious if a meal didn’t have meat in it, feeling like I would still be hungry. Hogwash, I know that. I decided I would […]
