I can tell you that once, not too long ago, maybe even this time last year, I was ashamed of everything about my body, and I hated the way I looked. Every stretch mark and scar that adorned my belly and thighs and ass were like the faded lashings of an angry master. The way my boobs looked was unappealing to me, and I seemed to carry weight in my face like I carried shame on my back. I hid myself in baggy clothes, willing myself to lose 50 lbs overnight, so I could wake up happy and begin living. It never happened. Until one day, finally, it did... [cont. reading]
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'm pretty good, for the most part, but I have been suffering from the worst period symptoms this past week, and I just want it to be over. The fatigue, the bloating, the cramps, the migraines... (cont.)

Are you trying to lose weight or just live a more generally healthy lifestyle? Are you also pinching pennies together? Either way, I've got the list for you. When it comes to losing weight or eating healthier, we need to buy certain foods, because we are more likely to reach for those foods we have in stock, and thus, we are more likely to stick to our diets. Unfortunately, this is the part where a lot of us suffer, especially if money is tight or we are sticking to a tight grocery budget. What to buy? What to eat? Where to even start?
Outdoor workouts really remind me of being a kid again—getting dirty, the feel of the sun on your skin, the smell of the grass and the wind in the air, the sound of traffic and birds...While it can be nice, there are also some downsides to working out while outside. So which is better, working out outside or indoors, like in your home or a gym? Well, I'm going to weigh the pros and cons of doing your workout outside, and you can judge for yourself!
June is here, and that means summer is, too! 2017 is halfway over and that feels strange...Doesn't it?
I can totally understand why people don’t like mornings, even though I don’t subscribe to that way of thinking anymore. If you work pretty much every day, or go to school, chances are that’s where you’re heading shortly after you wake up. It isn’t as pleasant as, say, waking up on Christmas morning, or the day you’re leaving for your tropical beach vacation. That may be why a lot of people hate dragging themselves out of bed in the morning, especially if it is any earlier than they are used to. I understand how it can sometimes be tough to not only acclimate to the earlier hours, but conquer them and thrive. If you dread mornings and navigate yours with a combination of zombie-like sluggishness and just enough energy to do only the bare minimum, but you want to become more of a morning person as soon as this coming Monday, then look no further
