Moderation of Real Food

As much as moderation is the key, it should be moderation of all real foods. I understand the want to eat things that are bad for us, but we shouldn’t want to eat food that just plain isn’t food anymore. Just because something fits the diet you’re eating right now doesn’t mean you should eat…

Follow the Leader

  This is NOT a good idea, folks. We know this now, right? If you don’t, please check out the rest of my blog. We can eat all we want! We can still lose weight (if we need to) and get fit and healthy. It’s possible, even if we’re eating more than the dreaded 1300…

Wednesday Weigh-in – Bloated!

One of the best things you can do for yourself is set a goal. It can be big or small, and you can have multiple ones at the same time. Setting small goals will keep you on track. Aim for one raw meal a day at the beginning. Or set out to try new foods…

Pay Closer Attention + Video #1!

I had to deal with yesterday’s food choices today. This is usually why we just continue to eat the way we do. We eat what tastes good because we won’t feel the effects until later. We eat, forget, and then feel the problems hours later. And after that happens, we don’t always associate the symptom with…

No More Scales!

Attention! Please step off your scale. Do not define yourself by that number. Those digits do not tell the whole story. Many different things can be happening in your body, but you take one number and assign it one factor: fat. Your body is made up of bones, fluids, muscle, fat, and more. The number…

Make Good Choices

Not all days are perfect. But at the very least you can try every day to make good choices, smarter decisions, and better food swaps. If you’re at the beginning of your healthy journey, try to replace one meal a day with a plant-based group of foods. Attempt to move away from all the processed…

Saturday FAQ: Calories, Detox, and Giving Up

This was not a great day. A couple times I waited too long to eat today and I got sick and/or irritated. I call the hunger-induced irritation being hangry. And boy, I was hangry a couple times! I was half being lazy and half trying to work. Plus, I’m totally behind on sleep, but that…

Grocery Shopping

I had a friend ask me if I could take her body for a while, do what I’m currently doing to mine to hers, and then give it back when I’m done. I had to laugh because it was a cute thought. She’s a wonderful person, and it pains me to hear indirectly negative thoughts…

Cultivate Healthy Habits

We’re all so worried about weight, but I can’t stress enough about not defining yourself by that number. I’d stopped weighing myself because I’m much more concerned with being healthy now. I weigh myself for this blog to show you that weight can be maintained, but it’s really not necessary. It’s definitely a different mindset…

Wednesday Weigh-In: Inspirational Friends

While taking a break at work today, I checked my phone to find this amazing message from an incredible friend doing a juice fast: I woke up this morning SIX lbs lighter! I have never lost that much in only 3 days! Wow!!! And I feel fantastic! I wake up with energy and sleep better. I’m…
