Rants, observations and musings (but mostly rants)

On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old

On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old
So here's the thing: Full House represents a more innocent time. A Friday night tradition where the half hour spent with the Tanners was something you looked forward to, and when the clock struck TGIF, it was just you and the TV. And maybe other people in your family. And that was it. No phones, no distractions, just doing one thing at a time and enjoying it. This was childhood in the late 80s and early 90s. Long before the Fuller House Ne--Read more--

Sisterhood

Sisterhood
To start, I'm just going to blow right past the fact that I have temporarily abandoned my poor little blog. I'm back and we're moving on. K? K. For the past few months I've been working with Whitney Thore, star of TLC's My Big Fat Fabulous Life, on her upcoming memoir. Whitney is a joy in every sense of the word. As someone to collaborate on a book with, as a writer and just as a human being. She has influenced how I look at myself and thin--Read more--

Soda-Free Success!

Soda-Free Success!
Update: Success on the soda front! None in February and barely miss it at all. To be completely honest, I did have two Cokes while battling a nasty stomach bug in early March when I couldn't eat or drink much of anything else and it made me feel a lot better. But I figure medicinal-only Coke is okay. That experience really showed me how much I crave it when I'm drinking it. Once I was over the bug I would have killed for another, but a day or --Read more--

A Soda-Free Life?

A Soda-Free Life?
My good friend D and I are instituting No Coke February to try to kick our soda habit for good. (Though I do wish it was November so we could be doing No Coke November. Much better ring to it.) But these pounds are not going to lose themselves. I've written about body acceptance after baby and while I still do believe that weight loss shouldn't be a new mom's top priority, now that my "baby" is a year and a half, it's time to get serious about--Read more--

Green Juice Horror

Green Juice Horror
I should have known better. It's a drink made out of kale. Come on. No one wants to drink kale. And I should have done what any reasonable person would have when the cashier told me the price. Me, on an "I need to eat more greens" kick: I'll try the One-a-Day green juice. Le Pain Quotidien cashier: OK, your total is $9.69. Me: I'm sorry, how much? LPQ twit: $9.69. Me: Oh, no, I actually only ordered one. LPQ hell minion: <--Read more--

Meditation Situation

Meditation Situation
It's a theme that keeps coming up for me lately. Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something? I have a friend who swears by meditation. Another friend wants to do it in a group setting with me (didn't think that was the point, but whatever … being judge-y and ohm-like don't seem to go together). I heard about it during yoga in Dewey this summer from David, a real gem who teaches on the beach at Swedes street. And, most recently, an in--Read more--
