I Need A Bigger Jacket

Posted on February 7, 2018

One morning this week I was going through my closet, and collecting few items for the donation bin – hats I don’t wear, few arms sleeves that I have not used in years, cropped jacket that is just not comfortable. I pulled out a leather jacket that’s been hiding in the back of the closet,

Operation SuperCoach – Are You On Your Body’s Side?

Posted on September 2, 2017

An amazing woman I had the privilege of working with, wrote this few months ago. I am sharing here with her permission. “I had this epiphany in the hospital as I lay on my bed attached to tubes and machines. It was an immense feeling of gratitude. My body didn’t betray me. My body handled

I Can Be A “Do Nothing Bitch” If I Feel Like It…

Posted on July 25, 2017

“I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do nothing bitch. A DNB. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else. That’s why I think it’s hilarious if my body looks

Shadows Of Our Past, And Two Things I Want To Do (But Don’t) Immediately After Travel

Posted on August 2, 2016

I arrived in Canada Thursday night, exhausted from three flights, I-don’t-know-and-don’t-care how many time zones, and firmly in I-can-smell-myself-and-it-ain’t-pretty zone. Fed and showered, I finally crashed at 11pm, hoping that a long day, and a relatively late bed time will be enough to magically propel me into the correct time zone the next morning. Futility

On Compliments, Stuff-ness, And Cultivating A Bikini Mind [Guest Post]

Posted on May 10, 2016

At a grocery store, a six-year old child points his fingers at a fat cashier, and smiles. “That fat lady has a pretty necklace!”, he says. The kid’s mother turns beet red and shushes him: “That is NOT a nice thing to say, honey!”. The kid is confused. I’d be confused too. He just gave fat

Operation Bridezilla, And The 30-Day Pre-Wedding Diet

Posted on May 6, 2016

Confession: I want to be thin for my wedding. Correction: I want to be thinNER. Also… I am having an existential crisis having to pick just the right shade of nail polish for my wedding day. Do I go conventional? French? Do I match the shade to my dress? To my invitation color? To groom’s

*As my regular readers know, I overrely on sarcasm. My sense of humour is overwhelmingly sarcastic, self-deprecating, and sometimes, cynical. If you are NOT one of my regular readers, I’d love it if you read the blog post to the end, before getting offended. If you get to the end, and you are still offended,

#BellyButtonChallenge And Other Dumb Things I Wish I Didn’t Know About

Posted on June 24, 2015

Sometimes I truly worry about humanity. Like… really worry. My chiropractor is manipulating my shoulder joint, as I tell him about the new trend I learned about today (and you don’t even have to dump a bucket of cold water on your head!). The belly button challenge – a trend on Instagram, where people post pictures

Root Canals And Getting Old(er)

Posted on February 20, 2015

One day, while applying eyeshadow, I noticed that the skin on my upper lids was not as firm as it used to be. Bummer. You know when I noticed it for the first time? When I was 28. Yeah. I found my first grey hair when I was 29. It was in my eyebrow, and

The Long Overdue Love Letter (To My Body)

Posted on February 13, 2015

Dear Body, The day after racing for almost 16 hours, after running down the beach with a bunch of plantains, swimming in a lake, carrying a heavy sandbag, scrambling along treacherous rock, the day after ALL that, I wake up to realize that you are not even that sore. A little scratched up, perhaps. A
