Tips for Navigating the Holidays and some Disneyland Holiday Food

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year…but they can also be the most stressful time of the year too. I know firsthand how challenging it can be dealing with family and friends and let’s face it, food when you are not quite so confident and happy in your body.  The comments, being around food, guilt, lack of boundaries and did I mention being surrounded by food?  I have another post with tips on how to handle food in Disneyland but they also work EVERYWHERE. So, I wanted to create this post to share with you some of the magic of the holidays at Disneyland and share some of the holiday foods I tried this season.  Spending time at my happy place, especially during the holidays is such a magical time for me, and learning to enjoy the foods, without going all in or all out and listening to my body, and not feeling shameful for what I eat or throw away because I did not like them is a huge part of recovery.  Although I still have a long way to go, I am also proud of how far I have come. I also wanted to share some

Let’s Transition Some Summer Dresses to Fall/Winter

Forever dreaming  I’m in a winter wonderland ❄️❄️❄️ I love wearing dresses.  They are what make me feel the most comfortable and confident right now.  I thought that I would share how I style someone my favorite dresses from the warmer summer months and make them a little warmer and cozier for the fall and winter months.  Please keep in mind that I am a California girl, so the weather here gets cold for ME, but probably not THAT cold compared to other places in the world.  Summer to Fall/Winter Dress Look 1 Take your fav dress and pair it with a cardigan. Throw on a sassy classic hat and some sneakers. You are ready to go! Summer to Fall/Winter Dress Look 2 Take that same dress but now we are putting a sweater over it. You still see the beautiful dress on the bottom, which now looks like a skirt but you are all snuggly warm in an oversized sweater or sweatshirt. Again pair it with a classic pair of sneakers and you are good to go! Wearing little booties or boots would be a cute way to style these looks up for the colder months

Eating Disorder Recovery Update

If you didn’t know I struggle with Binge Eating Disorder. I have been seeing a therapist and working on recovering from this. To say it has been hard is an understatement. As much as I want to recover, I sometimes question if it is possible for ME to actually recover.  I question if I am doing the right thing regularly.  I catch myself feeling like this is too hard and I just want to go back to my old ways and just focus on weight loss, where it feels like it would just be easier to starve myself, kill myself in the gym, and stress over every single thing I ate and put into my body again.  To go back to having nightmares every night that told me to just stop eating. To keep focusing so much on weight loss that nothing else in my life matters until I am “skinny”.  Telling myself that if I can just lose weight again, I will be happy, people will like me more and life will just be….better.  As I sit here and type this, with tears rolling down my cheeks, I KNOW for a fact that I
