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

By |July 26th, 2015|21-Day Fix, Daily Confessional, Fitness|6 Comments


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 […]

By |July 15th, 2015|21-Day Fix, Daily Confessional|7 Comments


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, […]

By |July 6th, 2015|21-Day Fix, Daily Confessional|4 Comments

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 […]

Meal Prep and Why I’m Boycotting Ziploc

By |July 4th, 2015|Daily Confessional|6 Comments

Happy Independence Day (for ye fellow Americans)! I wrote a couple of years ago about why living with/being married to an immigrant has made me much more patriotic. It’s easy to take the U.S. and all the freedoms living here allows us for granted when you don’t know any better, but being with someone who […]

The Meat and Juice Cleanse

By |July 2nd, 2015|Daily Confessional|Comments Off on The Meat and Juice Cleanse

I started my month of self-care with a BluePrint cleanse. I’ve done it before, and you can read about it in any number of my past blogs. I do a juice cleanse once or twice a year. I don’t really believe in detoxing so to speak, our bodies are pretty good at self-cleaning, but I like […]

July 2015 Resolutions: The Self-Care Challenge

By |July 1st, 2015|Resolutions|2 Comments

Happy July!
I can’t believe it’s July.
Can I take a nap now?

That’s my resolution for July: Take a nap.

Well, not really, but my resolutions are sort of on par with that: I’m making July a month dedicated to self-care.

The last few months have been particularly exhausting for me, in all senses of the word: physically, mentally, […]

Confessions of a Self-Acceptance Hypocrite

By |May 29th, 2015|Books, Daily Confessional|3 Comments

This may very well be my longest hiatus from blogging ever. It certainly wasn’t planned, but as my next book deadline looms closer (I have exactly a month—eek) I find that I’m completely spent on the word count at the end of the day.

Things have changed shape with my new book a bit, which is […]

Why Working from Home with my Husband Won’t Lead to Divorce

By |April 27th, 2015|Daily Confessional|3 Comments

When The Fella and I tell people that we both work from home, they look at us like we’re nuts.

“Are you driving each other crazy?,” says just about everyone.

“No, it’s actually fine,” I say.

And then there’s a knowing look and a head bob.

 Hold off on the divorce countdown, folks. It’s all going to be okay.

 Yes, […]

Keep your thumbs down!

By |April 10th, 2015|Daily Confessional|2 Comments

No more thumbs upping for me.

I done tore-n-d a ligament in my thumb.

How I did that, I don’t know, but it’s been hurting for a few months now. I just figured the pain would go away with time, but about a week ago I tried to hand The Fella a plate full of food with […]
