    Setting New Year’s Resolutions? Here’s How to Do It Shame Free

    I’ve been kinda bashing New Year’s Resolutions lately and for me personally I don’t set them anymore, haven’t in a long time. Instead, I pick a word (usually it ends up being 2-3 words)/theme for the year to focus on. New Year’s Resolutions never worked for me and left me “hating” myself more for not being able to stick, yet again, to another diet/weight loss program, exercise routine, etc. But for some, New Year’s Resolutions are what they still do.

    Self-Care Ideas for The Holidays

    Self-care is important all throughout the year, but I think it may be even more important this time of year. The holidays aren’t all jolly and delightful for everyone.

    Good Riddance Self-Hate, Hello Self-Love!

    I spent so much of my life hating my body and myself because of other people’s judgments and beliefs that I allowed to become my reality and my truth. Thankfully, several years ago, I began to question all that and started to heal and see myself differently. Now, finally, at 43, I love myself and my body. And I’m fat.  It’s pretty empowering… even though others still try to push their judgment and fatphobia beliefs on me. You know why? Because it’s ok to be fat. Just as it’s ok to be skinny. Nobody should be judged because of their body type. And Mary over at Uncustomary agrees with me:…
