Time to Confess My Love For The FBG Anti-Diet

FBG-antidiet-review-435

I’m going to admit --- I am not a big reader. Never have been; don’t know if I ever will be. I typically get through the first few pages and then I’m spacing off, wondering what’s for dinner. By no means am I proud that I survived high school by frequenting SparkNotes on the reg. So when FBG had a …

Knowing Your Limits vs. Failing

limits-failing-435

I'm back from Hawaii with a bit of a tan, a few surfing-related wounds, and a ton of stories I can't wait to share. It turns out you can fit a lot of FBG-worthy activities into a two-week period! So, I hope you don't mind, but you'll see quite a few Hawaii-related posts over the next couple of …

WITHIN by Dr. Habib Sadeghi: A Study in Self-Love or Hooey?

within_book-435

Before I get into this, I want to ask you to take a few deep, slow breaths. Grab your hippity-dippity hat, maybe also a cup of herbal tea. Partly because, well, those are nice things to do anyway, but mostly because this book gets real hippity-dippity real fast, and I want you to be in the right …

Lucky’s Life Lessons on Patience and Acceptance

Lucky-slide-435

Last year was a busy one. I bought my first ever brand new car, got married on the sly and rescued Lucky, a 4-year-old Border Collie-Schipperke mix. Trained, housebroken, walks well on a leash and ... petrified of everyone. She was quite the departure from my last super-social fur baby, but I was …

thumbprint

You know why I love Wednesdays so much? It's because it's the shift in the week. I always start out Mondays with a bit of crabbiness. I just can't help it. Mondays always win. They always make me scowl, and it takes most of Tuesday to recover from that lack of crabby control. Then beautiful Hump Day …

Whatever You Do, Do It for YOU

Kristen-ninja-run-435kgs

Is there anything better than hearing that someone has learned to embrace running (or cycling, or swimming, or CrossFit, or really, any form of exercise)? I love hearing those words, and I love sharing tips and hearing people's stories. I enjoy doing what I can to help them through any struggles …

tish-mark-wedding-435

That photo kind of says it all, doesn't it? You've got Tish there as the bride, giddy and as gorgeous as can be, her now-husband Mark grinning from ear to ear, a gorgeous beach setting, friends and family snapping away on their devices, and then, me, excited as can be, fist-pumping in the …

Like pretty much every other humor-loving writer who works via the internet, I keep tabs on what BuzzFeed is up to, and one of their recent trends was to list out things that certain groups of people (like Austinites and Millennial Girls) love. And because I like to think that I, too, am funny …
