Wellness Wednesday, 10.2.19

Hi! Welcome to Wellness Wednesday, where I’m going to endeavor to, on the same day each week, update you on where I am with my physical and mental wellness, covering food, rest, exercise, and self care practices and how they are (or aren’t) serving me and my goals. I’m going to also keep it pretty [...]

Fall 2019: Balancing training and recovery with a new system and new tools

Obviously I have written here more about my fitness journey than any other topic. It's been a huge part of my personal growth journey, and even though it's been rocky and slow and frustrating at times, especially the past few years, it have learned so much- not just about food and exercise, but about myself, [...]

Some Starting Steps Toward a Healthier Lifestyle

I promised some ideas of things you can do to start yourself on the path to being healthier in general, and losing excess weight, if that’s something you need or desire to do.

It's not because of anything he is saying or doing at all- well, maybe the booty shots [...]

Wellness Update 2/2/19

Heeeeeey Y'all! Not a whole ton has changed in the past week, but I've done some good thinking and sorting out in my head and heart. I've had some high highs and low lows with my mental health, and that has taken up more of my energy than I'd like, but that's just life right [...]

August 1 Intuitive Eating Update

Hey Y'all! It's a new month and I am ready with some new thoughts, changes, updates, and resources! First, I'm down five pounds (at least) since my last post nine days ago! Obviously, this is not the thing that matters most, and I'll get into that more in a bit, but it tells me that [...]
