Your Weight is Not the Problem – 3 Ways to Overcome the True Problem

Your Weight is Not the Problem – 3 Ways to Overcome the True Problem

As someone who has spent some time in the weight loss community, I’ve noticed this problem. Women are losing weight, achieving their goals, and are still hating their bodies. Why? Because their bodies and how much they weigh is not the problem.  The true problem is low self-esteem. And, unfortunately, low self-esteem does not discriminate. If you think poorly of yourself, hate yourself, and find yourself worthless, that train of thought will follow you around, no matter how much your body weighs. Your low self-esteem will continue to pick on your body, no matter how perfect it is. I know this because […]

Emotional Management: 3 Legitimate Ways to Stop Being Offended by Everything

You may have clicked on this thinking I was going to make fun of people or give satirical tips on how  “snowflakes” need to just “learn to take a joke”. But that is not the case, my friends!

It’s for people who are sick of being on an emotional roller coaster and want to take back their control. It’s for people who want to enjoy social media, not be constantly pissed off by it. It’s for people who […]


When Being Right Is Wrong

When Being Right Is Wrong

Firstly, I want to start off by saying that I’m preaching to the choir here, sister! There’s nothing sweeter to me than being right; however, as I get older and mature, I’m seeing ways in my life in which that is causing more harm than good. I’m seeing more disruptions caused by my drive to be right than anything. I’m often times finding myself at a crossroads, asking myself “is it really that important to be right about this?” Truthfully, when I really ponder it, being right often isn’t worth what I’m sacrificing. And usually, as the mother to a stubborn toddler, […]


How To Survive Motherhood Burn Out

How To Survive Motherhood Burn Out

Let’s not beat around the bush – lots of moms experience burn out. And for lots of different reasons. As a mother it’s so easy to lose yourself in being mommy. What makes it especially hard is that being mommy isn’t always fun. Most of the time it’s monotony – cleaning the same messes, saying the same things, going the same places, etc – and hard work – juggling 35 different things at one time. The monotony and relentlessness of motherhood can be draining, to put it simply. It can leave moms feeling like a zombie, like a shell of […]


How to Overcome the Envy that Social Media Causes

How to Overcome the Envy that Social Media Causes

I’ll be the first to say that I love social media. Just ask my husband! I love that it allows me to connect with people all over the freaking world. It allows me to develop genuine friendships with people across the United States. When I was feeling extreme loneliness due to postpartum depression, I was able to find comfort within Facebook mom groups. If I’m feeling uninspired before I do my makeup, I turn to social media for inspiration. Social media is also a great place to learn about new things – social media is how I discovered bullet journaling, […]

How I Got My @$&# Together | Diet and Exercise

  I’m gonna be straight with you – I never thought I would be someone that would hail diet and exercise as a life changer, and I say that because of my past experiences with it. My Past Experience with Diet and Exercise I’ve always struggled with my weight and have attempted to lose weight several times through out my life, and I never saw any results. In fact, I would gain weight. I put on 20 pounds right before my wedding when trying to lose weight. It was baffling and frustrating and no one had answers. And if I […]
