Early in 2012, I swore off dieting. I vowed to follow the idea of mindful eating and see where my body ended up. I truly believed that if I ate mindfully, the weight would just melt away. It didn’t. But, for a good while, it remained completely steady. Then, my weight started to climb a […]

Paige’s blondish-brownish hair swung below her knitted cap as she climbed the stairs to her school bus today, heading off to kindergarten. She sunk onto the first seat, sliding to the window and looking out at me with her big brown eyes. Immediately, her little hand rose  and started waving. I did the same, wearing […]

How to Stay Healthy While Eating Out (Eat. Live. Be. For a Better 2011)

Yesterday was my 31st birthday, a day that seemed to sneak up on me without warning. No longer am I “barely 30.” No longer am I “practically still in my 20s.” I’m firmly planted in my 30s. And it’s okay. For my birthday, I relaxed. I sat on a sun porch and read several chapters. […]
