While other people were managing their pandemic stress by baking sourdough and tie-dyeing their entire wardrobes, I was browsing the internet for stuff I didn’t need — candles, throw pillows, pajama sets, anything that could make the time in lockdown feel more like a cozy choice than a life-or-death necessity.

80% Diet + 20% Exercise = 0% Evidence

These are three common statements regarding the disproportional impact of nutrition on body composition that are bandied around so frequently many people accept them as fact.

This Is How To Plan A Day.

I am going out of town with my family tomorrow. I have a lot to get done before we step on the plane. I woke up with my mind spinning on repeat: work, write, errands, kids, meals, cleaning, dog. All the things I want or need to do today. Over and over. I knew I […]
