“I’m starting to feel fat and I’m freaking out cause the holidays are coming up.”

Who has ever said those words, thought those words, or felt those words? Who has said those words and known they were ludicrous coming out of your mouth?

I typically don’t like to buy low-cal ice cream (Halo Top, Arctic Zero, Enlightened, etc.) Reason number one being it’s not really that good. Every time I have gotten it it’s rather icy and flavorless. If I’m going to eat ice cream I want the real stuff no hold on the...

This week, Derek and I are leaving for vacation to Chattanooga, TN with my family. This will be our second time going to Chattanooga and we’re both so excited—it’s really the perfect vacation spot for us as it is named one of the best outdoor cities in the world and ho...

You know that feeling after you’ve eaten a jar, bag or box of something and you turn it around to glance at the nutrition information thinking “Well, that couldn’t have been more than one or two servings” and then your gut sinks a little as you realize not only did you...

I read a quote yesterday as I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram and at first glance it was something I agreed with. After reading it again and thinking about it a little longer though I became so emotionally wrought for a good ten minutes I swear you could hav...
