EXERCISE ADDICTION AND EATING DISORDERS….LETS GET PHYSICAL

I remember my alarm clock going off at 3 in the morning. I would get the sickest feeling in my stomach as I knew as tired as I felt I had to get up. The coldness from the winter air would hit my skin. I would stumble around in the dark looking for the light, [...]

NEDA….SHOUT SHOUT LET IT ALL OUT

  It’s NEDA week, and I can’t help but always feel pressured during this week. I feel like I should run up and down the streets or be on top of some platform talking about it. Perhaps I should be doing a walk or eating fancy shrimp somewhere at a conference handing out my business [...]
