The past week or so I've had severe writer's block for one reason or another. When you blog, you not only owe consistency to your readers but you also owe it to yourself to continue to work on something you've tried so hard to upkeep. So, in the meantime, I've been scouring for inspiration in the … Continue reading When you survive a Whole30
There are certain things in life we can't live without: food, water, shelter, love...and pizza (ok, maybe not). Food and body image have been topics of many of my blogs recently...once upon a time I even claimed I was going to do paleo for 30 days (only to fail after day 4)...but started for all the … Continue reading Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?
"Happy New Year, Beth :)" the text(s) read. Does that happen to anyone else? As soon as Christmas or NYE hits, your inbox suddenly becomes flooded with messages from men you haven't spoken to in months? It's like, ah, I know I fucked up, but it's the holidays! Happy Holidays!

I just had an awesome weekend with my best friend from back home. We did a lot in the short period of time she was here, but it was still a relaxing weekend nonetheless. Racing thoughts were minimal, perhaps because I was distracted by great company or maybe this meditation thing it working quicker than … Continue reading Clearing headspace: Day 2 + 3
Our minds are constantly racing with thoughts, most that are unwanted. The anxiety that goes hand in hand with being human is exhausting and we are constantly promising ourselves that we will be better tomorrow. We won't stress about people who don't stress about us. We will get our rent paid, no matter how many … Continue reading Clearing headspace
Life has been different, sort of. For the first week, I was sad. Well, more like f*cking pissed. I was mourning the loss of my perfectly healthy body and viewed my new diagnosis as something that would hold me back. I feared eating, running, and taking my medication because I was afraid of failing. I … Continue reading Living fit with my “new normal”
