Confessions of a hard gainer…

Body shaming is definitely a hot topic in mass media today and it comes from past programming that’s been embedded in our brain to make us think and act a certain way about body image. We judge other people and are quick to come to conclusions about what we think people need or want or are struggling with.

Unfortunately a lot of people who are talking about body shaming are actually doing just that with their message; shaming.

How so you ask? Continue reading “Confessions of a hard gainer…”

Feed Your Soul

Feed Your Soul

For as long as I can remember I would think about being somewhere else. I would envision myself on a beach somewhere, totally calm and totally at peace. Or sitting on the porch of a cabin looking out over a beautiful valley, breathing in crisp mountain air. Continue reading “Feed Your Soul”

Hiring a Personal Assistant

Hiring a Personal Assistant

“Hiring a personal assistant? Great that means you’re going to have so much more free time! “

I just kind of sat there staring as I heard that statement.. I’m pretty sure I even tilted my head a little like a dog does when you ask them if they want to go outside. I know my facial expression couldn’t hide the look of sheer confusion on my face.

An assistant is going to give me free time? Is this really what you think? Continue reading “Hiring a Personal Assistant”

Being Selfish

Being Selfish

Learning to be SELFISH has changed everything in my life.

Yes, you read that right… SELFISH.

I spent the majority of my life always saying “YES”.
Always feeling obligated to attend everything I was invited to
Always moving around my own schedule around to better benefit someone else.
Always putting off the things I needed to do for MYSELF (ya know like grocery shopping, getting my car to the shop, showering, those sort of things were always put on the back burner) Continue reading “Being Selfish”

I am an American

I am an American

Once upon a time I was the girlfriend of a deployed Marine.

It was him. And me. That’s all that mattered in that, to what now feels like such a brief moment in time. In my heart, I knew he needed me, and I fully intended to be there as much as I possibly could as a support system to him.

It was the first time I made friends with women across the country whom I had never met. It was the first time I reached outside of my inner circle for connection and support. No one else got it. Honestly, I didn’t really even talk to the people “closest to me” about it at all. To this day they don’t really know much about that relationship… how deep it was, how it affected me, how it unraveled… Continue reading “I am an American”

Fitness Bullshit…

Fitness Bullshit…

I used to bullshit about fitness every day.

Everyday it was written in my planner.

“GYM”

“CARDIO”

“YOGA”

I put it on the list Every. Single. Day.

And every single day, I skipped it. Continue reading “Fitness Bullshit…”

Even on my worst day I’m still killin’ it

Even on my worst day I’m still killin’ it

I realized today that I’m sick and damn tired of being lonely.

Well, I didn’t JUST realize this today but it did just become completely clear that this is a reoccurring thing for me and quite frankly I’m sick of it.

I could choose to get upset with friends or significant others for this feeling. I could be sad or unhappy or start a fight. But then I remembered a valuable lesson…. Continue reading “Even on my worst day I’m still killin’ it”
