I love food and I love to eat... But I also like to look certain way.
So most of the times I chose options that go in line with my goals.
I accepted that not every meal will be a gourmet and mouth watering feast.
I chose lighter alternatives 80- 90% of the times. And I'm ok with it, because then, when there's something I really like and enjoy, I just have it. GUILT FREE. Which was the case today- two big slices of a poppy seed cake. And I would have more, but there wer
You've probably heard that "abs are made in the kitchen". Yes, it is true. Thousands of crunches are not going to give you a flat stomach if you consume too many calories.

But what can I do about it, except take my meds, check my blood every six months, put on a body lotion, watch what I eat, exercise and rest if exhausted....
My appetite has been raging for the last few days. And no matter how busy or occupied I try to get, I always find a way to eat. Lack of clarity regarding certain aspects of my personal and professional life, have been causing me some stress and anxiety. I usually try to be more mindful and use different coping strategies, but they just don't work right now. What do I do about it? Not really much... I just let it be for now, and focus on the things I can do. I'm still at the g
