I have been interested in the science of food addiction for about 6 years now. My interest stems from […]

  • My One Word For 2018: Balance

    During my teen and college years, I was a bit obsessed with resolution setting. Every January, I would set aside time to create a list of resolutions organized by category, sub-category, and sometimes even due dates… Flash forward many years and I no longer make resolutions.

  • Wonder Woman & Her 30 Seconds of Bravery

  • Permission to Not Be Perfect

    One of my favorite podcasters, Colleen Shannon of Being Boss, once said something to the effect of, “I’m not going to do my best, because my best might kill me.” Hearing her words was one of those beautiful aha moments where I literally said out loud “YES!

  • To the Bone: A Blog to the Lovers and the Haters…and Everyone in Between

     Back in the mid-1980’s I stumbled upon a Hallmark or Lifetime movie about bulimia. The show demonstrated in detail, a lot of which I can still remember, how the young, pretty, skinny white actress engaged in her symptoms. I remember staring at the screen, mesmerized. The show didn’t make me want to copy the girl’s […]
