  • Dear Body!

    I went through a whirlwind of emotions last week. From love and laughter to sadness and tears in just a few days. Life's roller coaster at it's best. We all have an expiration date. Youth is not an assurance for health, neither is age a guarantee for...

  • A Fat View on Health

    It's ok and healthy to be realistic about the short-comings of my body, as long as I realize that I am much more than just my body. In an ideal world, we could be critical of our bodies, without being critical of our whole person.If you walk off a cl...

  • Why Does This Always Have to Be a Battle?!

    I don't know about you, but even though I am not afraid of being mugged my a chocolate cake with vanilla icing (is this profiling?), this effing food thing is tough. I does not care how fit you are, or what you do; when you consume more calories than...
