Just one piece, you think.
It’s been a long day, and you’re craving chocolate. And you know there’s a bag of dark chocolate waiting in the pantry for you. So you decide to eat just one to take the edge off of your hectic day.

If you’re anything like me, life is go-go-go all the time. And sometimes, you just don’t have time to get clean and glam up. There’s also sometimes no point – why do your makeup if you’re just going to get sweaty again later?
A typical day for me includes a workout (sometimes two, sometimes a hike), work (where I’m walking and moving around constantly), and a few hours working on my blog, health coaching certification, or other tasks.

After struggling with severely disordered eating, Elizabeth Knowles found solace through an unsuspecting avenue. When her friends and family learned she planned to compete in a bikini competition, she was bombarded with disapproval.
“People told me this would only make things worse,” Knowles said. “Everyone said my obsession would get stronger and I’d spiral back into my old habits.”
Bodybuilding turned out to be thoroughfare to Knowles’ recovery. Since adolescence, she grappled with orthorexia nervosa, a term not even added to the popular lexicon until a few years ago. Orthorexia is an eating disorder not about thinness, but about a moral fixation on consuming “pure” foods.
