Twenty Something and Starving

meandhusband

Hi there! I'm Jen and I'm the blogger behind Twenty Something and Starving: Finding Balance and Bliss One Recipe at a Time. I have to admit that my relationship with food has never been that awful. It certainly wasn’t perfect, but I feel genuinely blessed to have never struggled with eating disorders like so many other women I know. Was I a chubby kid? Absolutely. But… I didn’t exercise and I lived off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, buttered spaghetti, and Cool Ranch Doritos.It made sense at the time. As a teenager I began to educate … [Continue reading]

Operation Determination

Have you ever heard that you are stubborn? I know I sure have! In the past 34 years I have heard it more times than I can count, or maybe it is more than I would like to remember! I don't consider myself stubborn, I prefer to say I am determined! Stubborn sounds so negative - being determined or having determination sounds more positive. Wouldn't you agree with me? The definition of determination: de·ter·mi·na·tion noun \di-ˌtər-mə-ˈnā-shən\ firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end <a woman of great courage and … [Continue reading]

The Bex Factor

Hi everyone! My name is Becky and I blog over at The Bex Factor where I ramble about my adventures in Crossfit, obstacle racing, my love of music and maintaining a healthy lifestyle while being a new mother. My son was born October, 2012 and is the love of my life, but has challenged me to find new ways to reach my goals. I’ve been doing Crossfit for nearly two years and I absolutely love it. It’s challenged me in so many ways and continues to do so every time I step into the box. I did Crossfit up until my 9th month of pregnancy and got right … [Continue reading]

Blessed with Thunder Thighs

Hello, my name is Michelle Kim! I am a Korean American 20-something-year-old girl who loves anything related to health and fitness. At blessedwiththunderthighs, I share about my workouts, my races, my faith, and my struggles. When I was in middle school, I developed a complex about my thighs. While all of my friends stayed stick-thin and petite, I grew tall and muscular. My legs bulked up, and instead of appreciating them for how strong and powerful they were, I decided to diet them away. I share the story of my eating disorder and how I … [Continue reading]

Drive Thrus Are For Lazy People

Passionately engage in every moment. I first heard this quote on a segment called Super Soul Sunday on the Oprah Winfrey Network, but I believe that from the day I was born I have always had a unique intuition that the presence brought to every situation matters. Whether it is related to mind, body or spirit – your engagements in the things that you do each and every day help you grow into the person you’ll be tomorrow, the next day, and the next day. Being 100% present leads to 100% satisfaction. As humans, however, we are certainly not … [Continue reading]

Hello, my name is Leslee and I am addicted to food. No seriously, I really love good food...and sometimes even crappy food too. Oh crappy, greasy food how you taste so good!

I think eating crappy food every once in awhile is perfectly okay. It's all about finding your happy balance in life!
