A Lie. Let me tell you a little about a lie I told recently… I was in a meeting with a bunch of big wigs at my company yesterday. I had been nominated for a leadership development program the company offers, and we were having a kick-off meeting for all that were nominated for the... Read more »
Yesterday I posted about my first week trying out the Whole30. I received an interesting comment directing me to a blog that disputes many of the claims from the book It Starts With Food. I looked up this blog, called Nutrition as I know It, and found many points to be very interesting. I am... Read more »
With the new year comes many resolutions. The problem with my new years resolutions is that most of the time, they don’t work.

I love them with all of my heart, and I am happy to share in the pleasure... Read more »
I set rules for myself all the time. I label them as goals, but they’re rules. I mean, a goal of not eating any fast food in the month of August is like making a rule for not eating fast food. I broke my rules. I broke rules that I found important to me. I... Read more »
Dear Self-Esteem, Over the many years of my life, we have had a love-hate relationship. We’ve been through our share of rough moments. Sometimes between you and my ego I just go kind of crazy. I know we fight and argue a lot, but I need you. In our most recent disagreement you left and... Read more »
In my last post I discussed my goals for the month of August. I am happily well on track. It’s been 10 days in the month of August, and I am doing just fine! This makes me very excited and motivated. I decided to try this 3 day diet (I have never used a link... Read more »
