Blobby Bodies and Biggest Losers: Women Judging Women

Writing about the season two premier of the HBO series Girls, New York Post critic Linda Stasi had this to say about show creator, writer, and star Lena Dunham who plays the character Hannah: “It’s not every day in the TV world of anorexic actresses with fake boobs that a woman with giant thighs, a sloppy backside and small breasts is compelled to...more

Does Organic Food Make You Act Like A Jerk?

What researchers found was that after viewing organic food pictures, people rated moral transgressions as being worse than people who saw the normal or comfort foods rated them. Those seeing organic also said they could volunteer significantly less time to help out. The results persisted no matter what the subjects thought of the desirability of the food. Seeing the organic food made people less nice, not nicer. ...more

It's Time to Stop Judging My Life on Others' Values

Over my lifetime, I have often found myself looking at my house through a different lens. ...more

Be Good to Yourself and Others, Okay?

I got my first real taste of judgement in ninth grade. I had just started the magnet school. I was comfortable. I had been with the same classmates, by that time, for several years. We were a unit, becoming part of a larger one. I had no concerns.Ms. Nota was my ninth grade Honors English teacher.The year started as every other one had, weather still too warm to buy into the fact that it was fall, and me still high from my summer reading. I loved it, that reading list. And the beach. I did most of my reading on the beach, which, for me, remains an intoxicating combination....more

I'm Judging Your Parenting -- Right Now

Just call me a Judgey McJudgerson because even though I have a kid, I still judge other parents. I judge often and I judge hard. I saw several moms on my Facebook feed share an article on the Huffington Post written by Kara Gebhart Uhl entitled "Apologies to the Parents I Judged Four Years Ago." It's a good read; make sure to check it out.

I'm probably in the minority but I will still judge you as a parent for these things....more

To Epidural Or Not To...

I read an article called The Truth About Epidurals by Melinda Wenner Moyer on the Washington Post Social Reader through Facebook and of course I can't help but comment. If you haven't read the article you can find it here. The article itself appears to be this mothers justification of her choice and right to choose an epidural as pain management during her labor and delivery....more

Judgment Day!

dear readers,I know I have not been in touch lately, my apologies. I will be out of town for a little while for work. It is not the packing that I have been so busy doing, it is trying my hardest to clean up (where necessary) after hours, so that when my MIL comes to take care of my daughter, my house appears less of a mess. Hence Judgment Day from the house inspector is less punishing.Read full story on www.LemonsAndSunnydays.commi...more

Please don't tell me I'm beautiful

Whatever you do, please do not tell me that I have a beautiful yoga practice. "You have a beautiful practice" has become a sneaky way for well-meaning practitioners to compliment and praise each other for their abilities on the mat. Yesterday I may have been able to straighten my legs in Plow pose but find that today my hamstrings are taut and my feet are just dangling out there in space....more
