Why I won’t be having a wedding – Why Wednesdays

This is a deeply personal entry. That being said, I feel like it’s important for some people to have a reality check. Weddings aren’t cheap. My mom is planning a wedding. Her budget was initially 10K. (In my mind I’m like TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS?! WHAT!?) But I guess that is a small budget. Then it…

Why you should stop weighing yourself – Why Wednesday

Please note – this is a subject that is very near to my heart. I have had problems with disordered eating since I was 11 years old. Though I am doing much better now, it is a voice that never fully goes silent. I dedicate this “Why Wednesday” to all who have ever struggled with…

I have them all saved in this special…

Why you should ditch your microwave – Why Wednesdays

Microwaves – most of us have them in our kitchens. In fact, one of the first things I “needed” on my journey to adulthood (moving out) was a microwave. At this point in time, I was still on a microwave diet – lots of tv dinners, etc. Anything reheated was done in the microwave. Need…

Why you should cook tonight – Why Wednesdays

Now before I get into it – I will say the following… I do eat out at least once a week, minimum and am aware of the benefits. In my opinion, it is important that most of your meals be home cooked. Even three meals not cooked by you is only 14% of your weekly…
