Oh, hi!

Oh hey! Hi! It’s me! How are you? I’m good. I’ve opened up a new post here about a bazillion times, only to stare at the empty window and close it again. I just don’t have much to say! But I consider that a good thing! Winter is just so… everything… for me. Its my… Read more »

Daily Dozen

I recently read Dr. Greger’s book How Not To Die. It was really great. That guy is amazing, he has done so very much for the nutrition world and for FREE. Even all profits for his book are going to charity. He genuinely cares about people, about prolonging their lives, and enhancing their health. It’s… Read more »


Thanks for looking back at 2015 with me. What a year! It’s time to look ahead now! I’m not going to be making any resolutions this year. And I am not going to make any weight loss goals. Despite gaining weight over this past year, I feel like not obsessing over a goal, and not… Read more »

The Great Closet Clean Out.

“But, when I am XXX lbs, this will fit and look SO cute…” Such is my thought nearly every time I entered my closet. Clothes hanging up, clothes piled up, clothes in bags auspiciously marked with goal weights that I think I will be when they will fit. Talk about surrounding myself with unattainable goals… Read more »

Weekend : The Motivation Murderer

You’re on point all week, right? Got your food all planned and prepped. You’re drinking your water at your desk. You’ve got your workouts scheduled. Smooth sailing! Then, hey now… it’s FRIDAY! Whatcha got planned? Whatcha got prepped? Oh, nothing? That’s right… nothing. I wanna wing it, I tell myself. I want the freedom to… Read more »

{Not} Believing I Can Do It.

I watched a girl walked across a parking lot. I watched her walk in her skinny jeans on her skinny legs. Her body moved quickly and with ease, as if no air was displaced by her. It seems to me that thin people aren’t affected by gravity. Perhaps those high heels are weighted to just… Read more »

Exercise Roulette!

My bro and I were trying to think of a little exercise challenge to do. It made me think about how good it is to spread out some activity throughout the day. Sometimes I do what I call “peelates” (pronounced : pee – lah-tees) which is just doing some stretches every time I get up… Read more »

Long Time No See

Hello SweatyPeeps!  I am so sorry for the lapse in posting. I’d like to say it was for a good reason, but it really wasn’t for any reason! This is the  major struggle I have a blogger…  I am boring as heck.  Its just how I roll. I’m going to do an old-school Shannon style… Read more »
