Big Breakfast Cookie

This is a curl up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee or tea on a cool morning kind of breakfast. I spied this Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie on Dinners, Dishes and Desserts over the weekend and it’s been on my “to make” list ever since.

I followed the recipe almost exactly as [...]

Late in The Day

This morning I just couldn’t get out of bed. I’m usually right out around 7 or 8 so it was weird to see 10:34 on my cell phone. What’s what about?

I didn’t end up eating breakfast until lunch time, and I imagine that rest of the day will follow suit. Who knows when [...]

Better Days

Once you realize that it’s possible to feel good by not eating certain things and including others instead, the compulsion begins to fall away because you’ve found something better: getting your life back.

This was the first thing I read this morning on my Facebook feed. By Geneen Roth of course. I had to [...]

Keep Calm

If I’ve learned anything about life, career and wellness, it’s that nothing good comes from panicking. Yet, I feel like I’m always relearning that lesson.

I went to a salesmanship conference a couple of years ago, where the speaker made it very clear that you can’t be creative if you’re [...]

Can I Have it All?

This week has zipped by! I say this on the heels of driving an hour away to stay with my parents and Josh in a cabin for the weekend. No internet and probably little phone reception. I’m bringing lots of books and notebooks and will be inspired, relax and swim.

It’s been a little over [...]

I interrupt My Regular Schedule

This magazine has been a long time coming, and morphed out of my Wear it Well project. This is the direction I want to be in, it’s my first self-motivated project in awhile that has simply felt focused and directional. I can’t wait to for the fall issue!

Feeling, Feelings

One of the hardest parts of intuitive eating is sitting with an emotion. The emotions vary from fear, worry, anxiety, anger, stress, and even startlingly, happiness and contentment. Asking myself, am I hungry? What am I hungry for? So many times in a day keeps me in the moment, in today, rather than starting over [...]

Weekly Food Prep

I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I prepared meals for the week ahead of time. This is a weird form of life satisfaction for me. I love having breakfast and lunch options available for me and Josh, mainly because we eat at different times and I want to cut back on [...]

What’s Work Got To Do With It?

This illustration is funny to me because I feel like this on most days. I know I’m not alone, right? This is a topic I’ve touched on before, but I want to revisit it because it’s a big one for me.

I’ve spent years trying to figure out why I overeat and I’ve come [...]

Intuitive Eating Take Five

It’s been two and a half weeks since I showed the world a picture of me in a too-small dress. Determined to lose weight to fit into it, I started by counting calories, then following the skinny rules, and then a couple of days of eating two much, and then reading Intuitive Eating, which [...]
