We’ve Moved! Can we Move Back?

Hello from the suburbs!

I’ll be honest ya’ll, this isn’t a super easy breezy transition for me.

I miss New York City every day. I have yet to get through a day without wondering if we could just call this whole grand experiment a mistake and go running back to our old life in New York City.

I […]

Quieting the New Year

I have to say, I have a good feeling about this year. I’m not sure why, but my instinct is that there is a lot of good to be had in 2017. I also feel like this is the year I make my life smaller and simpler.

My life goals in the past have come very […]

Coming Clean about my Plus Sized Postpartum Body

I have to admit that while I was pregnant I had this sort of dream sequence in which I could breastfeed myself down to my ideal body weight all while bonding with my beautiful little boy. Afterall, breastfeeding burns calories, right?

Uhhh, sure, I guess. The reality is that I sit on the couch all day […]

Wistful about working

Like any job, there are positives and negatives to being self-employed. Maternity leave is both. The positive is that I can choose to take as long a leave as I’d like. The negative is that we’re a one-income household for however long that is. I decided while I was pregnant that I would give myself […]

Greetings from our Babymoon

The Fella  and I are spending the week in the Dominican Republic for a little babymoon. Wait, did I forget to mention that I’M PREGNANT? 🙂

It didn’t exactly slip my mind (between the nausea and the constant exhaustion it’s been pretty hard to forget); we wanted to wait until I was past my first trimester and all […]

An Ode to Fall Food (and a Recipe for My Sweet Potato Pie)

First of all, thanks for all your comments yesterday. I definitely plan on looking into some of your suggestions about food eliminations to help ease the symptoms of Hashimoto’s. Having said that, it will probably be after the holidays. There’s going to be a lot of gluten in my life in the next month and […]

Dealing with Hashimoto’s Disease

You haven’t seen a picture of my dog in a while. So please, take a moment to revel in how adorable Inez is. Yes, it has occurred to me that I need a hobby that isn’t lavishing obscene amounts of affection on my dog, but I don’t have time for that…I have a dog that […]

21-Day Fix Review: The Start of a 50 lb weight loss


I’ve been on a diet since I was about seven. I actually write a lot about my disordered dieting history in my next book, so I’m not going to go into it completely here, but just know that I’ve spent almost the whole of my life obsessing over my weight. For the most part I’d […]

21 Day Fix- Day 10 Update


Sorry I left ya’ll hangin’ there for a bit. I’ve been super-duper busy with book rewrites, but I’m half way through the program and I really love it. But, let me be honest and tell you I haven’t lost any weight. I have lost an inch in my hips and a half-inch in my waist, […]

21-Day Fix: Day 1

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. There’s something about the 4th of July that means it’s really summer to me. We ended up spending the 4th inside with the pups, but celebrated on the 5th with Roy’s family.

Now that all that eating is over I’m trying something new: I’m giving the 21-Day […]
