It’s freezing and I haven’t had any wine in 22 days so there’s been lots of time for blogging. So much that I’ve posted almost every day the past few weeks. I’m 3 weeks into Whole30 and it’s felt pretty easy so far. I haven’t really had any cravings and …

When I made my list of goals for 2015, I realized how little I had given back and realized it was time to finally do something. So I volunteered at PAWS Chicago yesterday–something I’ve never done because I thought it would be too hard. Bianca and I spent 30-45 minutes trying to …

I got really into Halo Top ice cream and still think it’s the greatest thing ever. It’s low in calories and sugar, isn’t processed, has a good amount of protein, and tastes like heaven, but isn’t Whole30 compliant. I was forced to take a little break but found myself missing my …

I turned 33 last month. Not a milestone age, but there was something about this birthday that made me think about the past and future. About what I’ve done and where I’m going. Because there’s no escaping it–I’m in my 30s now. After a great co-working session and lunch with Alaina last week …

I found a place in a random neighborhood in Chicago that was just too good to pass up. I’ll miss my morning walks by the lake but think this is a good move. At least I hope so. Bigger apartment. Outdoor space. An office. Lower rent. Shorter cab rides downtown.

I used to read through magazines, look at these beautiful multimillion dollar homes, at celebrities with photoshopped bodies, and very expensive clothing. This is obviously still a thing today, but I couldn’t (and still can’t) relate to any of it. And I wanted to do something about that, but wasn’t …
