Girl Talk: Body Image Chat

  Note: Today’s post discusses body image. If this isn’t what you feel like reading today, no hard feelings! See you tomorrow 🙂 A few weeks ago I had a crazy yet enlightening realization. I was getting dressed in my real clothes which involved my favorite pair of black high boots. As I was zipping […]

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes

Cold Stone

  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my most favorite blogs and the first blog I ever read!) shared a terrific post last week called Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works For You. I think what I love most about her post is how she points out that a diet […]

Finding Balance Between Our Diets & Workouts Part Two

  Before we get started with part two of finding balance between our diets and our workouts, I realize that this post may contain information that many of you already know. But sometimes, just because we know something, doesn’t mean we apply it. It can often take repeated exposure to hearing the same information over and […]

Finding Balance Between Our Diets & Workouts

Finding Balance Between our DIets & Workouts

  I receive a lot of emails asking how to find balance between our diets and our workouts. If you ask me (which many of you have), it’s an ever evolving quest for finding that balance. Although on some level it’s simple – eat to fuel your appetite – it’s not always that simple. There’s no one size fits all […]

I do not run so that I can eat

  I had this dessert over the weekend which you may have seen if you follow me on instagram. I am often asked if I RUN to EAT my favorite desserts, how I plan my miles around what I feel like eating and, this week especially, will I cut my calories since it’s taper time. I can’t […]

Running Helps Me Think – Favorite Post Roundup

running helps me think favorite post roundup

  As you figured out from yesterday’s post, the half marathon on Sunday was just plain difficult. I kept attempting to zone out as I normally do during my daily runs to remove myself from my discomfort but no matter how I tried, I just couldn’t do it. Running, in general though, is great for spacing out and letting your […]

Waiting For Monday

You have heard me rant about the people who forget to eat. You have even heard me question those who fail to get up in the morning to squeeze in their workout. I  decided that those same people also fall into the category of Waiting For Monday. Are you one of them? It’s okay, you can tell me. Are […]

WIAW- Food Over Medicine

  **The winner of the Stur Giveaway is Liz from the blog, I Heart Vegetables ** So yesterday I decided that blog posts are like coloring books. I will often select a page to color, get half way through the pretty picture, lose interest in the pattern and flip the pages to find a new […]

NNM And Little Changes Lead To Big Results

  Pandora was really kind to me yesterday morning. I don’t know how Tiffany landed on a Pitbull station but I will certainly take it. Maybe Debbie Gibson will be next? 30 minutes on the elliptical plus a few minutes dilly dallying with weights for the biceps and I was done. Short workouts like this often leave […]

Thinking Out Loud- NEDA, Finding Balance And Amenorrhea

    Amanda suggested we Think Out Loud today regarding National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (NEDA). This year’s NEDAwareness Week theme is “I Had No Idea” to raise awareness towards the significant impact eating disorders have on individuals, families, and communities across the nation. You see “eating disorder” and immediately think anorexia and bulimia. You automatically think of […]

Three Tip Tuesday – A Life Without The Scale

  In case you were wondering, Edible Arrangements didn’t run any super spectacular Cyber Monday deals. I know this because I checked. To send one to myself. Anyway, I would happily bet you an Edible Arrangement that if we surveyed everyone reading this blog today, a majority of you would say you weighed yourself on a regular […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Vegetarian Diet Plateau

I was so glad and amused to hear yesterday just how many of us neglect our printers. I was starting to think I was just lazy  but as it turns out, most of us fail to replace the ink, fix paper jams or figure out why our silly printers stop functioning. Like my new Tuesday design? Look […]
