Signs you may be gluten intolerant

Let’s put it plain and simple…

Lately I’ve felt like straight dog shit. I haven’t slept a full night in months. I am fatigued beyond belief. My mood goes from high to low in the blink of an eye. Focus and mental clarity is nonexistent. Itchy is an understatement when it comes to my skin. Despite consistent efforts to lose weight, my body rejects it. And my anxiety (that I always have in some shape or form) is at an all-time high. Read More

Why I choose to make choices from love vs. restriction & deprivation

Still on my Lent kick, so bear with me. And, if I think about it, I probably will be for the next 39 days 😉

If you recall, I wrote a blog on 19 things you should consider giving up for Lent. If you haven’t read it, obvi you should. They’re not your typical chocolate & alcohol sacrifices either.

Well, as we know, I vowed to pick one from this list (giving up feelings of unworthiness) & practice it religiously day and night for 40 days. I, along with many gals, struggle with this. Even if we look happy, pretty, confident & like we have it all, sometimes we really don’t know what’s going on inside. I’ve had a lifelong battle with an eating disorder and probably will always struggle with this to a certain degree. But, I have committed myself for the Lent duration to make this my main priority — give myself a little TLC, if you will.

But, I also wanted to give up something that was tangible. If you’re competitive like me, you want everything you do to be measurable. Read More

19 things to give up for Lent

Lent comes around every year, and each time we contemplate what to give up: sweets, alcohol, weekly shopping sprees or our daily Starbucks run. In essence, lent is known as the “grieving season.” It’s a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter/Spring. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. During this time, we are often urged to give up something we adore or give of ourselves in some capacity we aren’t used to. Read More

Love YOU, first.

 

This Instagram post by Being Is Beautiful was too good not to share. From divorce to loneliness to working effortlessly to get back to a place where the only person who can fill my voids is ME,  I can really relate to this message. I bet you all can too.  Read More

A New Journey: #WhyIYoga

So, when I say I’m a yogi in training, that would probably be an understatement. I’m still figuring out the moves with the right technique with hardly any strength to actually hold me up (luckily my gymnast & cheer background helps a little). BUT, I could care less. There are only a few things that come around in your lifetime that really set your soul on fire and motivate you to want to be better every day. Read More

Valentine’s Day Isn’t Just About Others

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about saying “I love you” to your other half. It’s not just about flowers, chocolates, wine & GALentine time.

It’s about self love too. And, I’m not just saying this for all the single ladies out there [hand raised]. Read More
