Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?

Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?

There are certain things in life we can't live without: food, water, shelter, love...and pizza (ok, maybe not). Food and body image have been topics of many of my blogs recently...once upon a time I even claimed I was going to do paleo for 30 days (only to fail after day 4)...but started for all the [...]

Living fit with my “new normal”

Life has been different, sort of. For the first week, I was sad. Well, more like f*cking pissed.

I feared eating, running, and taking my medication because I was afraid of failing. I [...]
