All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

I received an email from one of my besties telling me to sign up for a half marathon and run it with her and some of our friends. Initially, I laughed. A lot. But, then I got that itch. That, I haven’t trained in a minute and it feels so good when I do kind … Continue reading

I stumbled on it somewhere online, but honestly cannot remember where. Thangs you need: 4 cups of shelled, cooked and cooled edamame 3/4 feta cheese (I used reduced fat feta) 3/4 … Continue reading

How Do I Meal Prep?

How Do I Meal Prep?

 “I want to eat more clean but that shit takes forever during the busy week without prep.” A good friend of mine asked for some tips in the form of a post, so I’m a kind enough soul to oblige. I honestly think people try and get too fancy when they start eating clean and over … Continue reading

On Your Left

Cobwebs, flat tires, and my wraps that desperately need to be re-wrapped. What is the PSI again? How does this pump work? KEEEEVVVVIIIINNNN. ‘MERGENCY!!!  He gets off a conference call and comes to my aid. My bike rack needs to be put back on. How do I do that again? Apparently by breaking a nail and trying … Continue reading

What is healthy?

I’ve read that some 95% of people regain their lost weight and many gain even more than what they originally lost. Weight loss has two sides: mental and physical. Most people *think* they have the mental aspect down, but when shit hits the fan there is no telling what happens. Weight loss is probably more … Continue reading

Taking Control Back

Taking Control Back

I’ve never understood how someone can weigh in just once a week. Scales are meant to weigh yourself with multiple times. Multiple times a day. Hi, my name is Danielle and I’m a scale addict. My obsession with the scale has impacted me negatively in the following ways: it dictates my mood for the day. A huge loss … Continue reading

The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us

 I weighed 325lbs and never once thought I was unattractive. In fact, I thought I was hot. Smoking hot. Curvy, thick, and juicy. If you tried to tell me otherwise I would have laughed in your face.  My confidence attracted people. I had boyfriends and heart breaks. People either hated me or loved me, but either way I still always had … Continue reading

Who Is This Bitch?

Who Is This Bitch?

To the woman who watches me in spin and chugs her Haterade, Fuck you. Your “Good Job” and condescending pat on the back as I left spin 15 minutes early is noted. What you don’t know is that I started spinning 30 minutes before the class started since I know I cant stay the full hour. What you … Continue reading
