By Katie, 9:00 am

Hi there! It’s been quite some time since I stopped by Health for the Whole Self, but I wanted to pop in and let you know that I have officially started a new blog called Pick Any Two. It’s a site for moms who are tired of the “have it all” mentality, moms who realize [...]

What I Know For Sure

By Katie, 6:20 am

What I know for sure is that something’s gotta give. What I know for sure is that my plate is overflowing. What I know for sure is that I’ve once again been trying to play the role of Miss Over Achiever, Do-It-All, Superwoman. I’m the proud owner of a new house and a new job [...]

One Year’s Worth of Make-Up in a Single Day

By Katie, 5:53 am

Seven bottles of foundation. Three lipsticks. Two bottles of eyeshadow. Two bottles of blush. In “Natural Beauty,” a short video from directors Lernert and Sander, the model has 365 days’ worth of make-up applied to her face in just one day. Apparently it took nine hours to complete the shoot, and the poor woman had [...]

Let’s Talk Feminism, No Bra-Burning Required

By Katie, 5:33 am

I am a feminist. When I was in undergrad, I was the co-founder and president of a feminist organization on campus. It was fun and sassy but also incredibly intellectual, and it quickly became one of the most active groups at the college. Today that feminist organization is alive and as active as ever thanks to [...]

Operation Stand Tall

By Katie, 5:09 am

If I had a nickel for every time my mom told me to sit up straight, I’d be a wealthy lady. If I had another nickel for every time I didn’t listen to her, I’d be twice as rich. I don’t know why, but I’ve always been a sloucher. Sitting at the computer, writing essays [...]

It’s My Turn: I’m Having a Biopsy

By Katie, 5:54 am

My mom has had countless skin cancer spots removed. My brother has had major surgery done on his neck because of possible melanoma, and he has to have a full body scan every three months. Now it’s my turn. Tomorrow I am getting a biopsy on a spot on my leg. My derm said that it’s either serious [...]

Inside My Wallet: Relationships and Money

By Katie, 5:02 am

Missed my first three Inside My Wallet posts? Check them out! When I first asked for suggestions for my Inside My Wallet series, by far the most requested topic was about handling finances in a relationship. No big shocker there, since I’m pretty sure money tops the list of reasons couples fight/disagree. (Source) Obviously every couple is [...]

From the Front Lines: A Follow-Up on the Slut Walk Movement

By Katie, 5:27 am

A few weeks ago I posted about the SlutWalk movement and the notion that a victim of sexual assault is never to blame for her (or his) attack. That post is still garnering attention and new comments; I should have known you all enjoy a little controversy! As a follow-up, today I am featuring this [...]

The Truth About The Biggest Loser

By Katie, 5:27 am

Sometimes I think I missed my calling. I should have been an investigative journalist, because I so enjoy finding out what really goes on behind the curtain and sharing it with all of you. The weight loss industry is a perfect place to apply this hobby, as it is literally overflowing with myths and misconceptions. [...]

Your Turn: Portable Breakfast Ideas

By Katie, 5:57 am

With the help of all of your wonderful moving tips, Dave and I successfully moved into our new house last weekend. (Pictures to come – right now it’s still just boxes!) I’m still in the process of figuring out my new routine, which includes a longer commute than I had before. One thing is for [...]
