“Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”
I’ve had a blog or two in my day. More like 4, actually. However, I wasn’t committed to any of them. I was a player, and I refused to settle. My mind changed as quickly as the time passed, and each and every blog I started died from neglect.

I bought this domain right before quitting my day job. It is my hope to eventually work for myself, as a freelance writer and behavioral nutrition counselor. My education, interest, and experience gives me a perspective that I am confident will allow me to produce content worth reading, help others, and make a real impact on the world. Most of all, though, I believe doing so— at least, trying to do so — will lead me to a new kind of happiness, found only when one is able to do what they love and be rewarded for it (even if the reward is small). Yet, even with these optimistic and confident thoughts pushing me forward, my anxiety and perfectionism made me dig in my heels. I kept coming up with reasons NOT to start the process, and with each day I put things off, I became more and more discouraged. I was angry at myself, and my fear of failing made me feel guilty and weak. Finally though, thanks to the combined efforts of my supportive boyfriend, parents, family, and friends, I have gotten my motivation back. I am determined to stick to it, be consistent, and have fun doing what I enjoy. So, folks, here goes…
Welcome to Food is my Frenemy! My name is Abby, and I love to bake, cook, and eat. I also happen to love to write. Ipso facto, this blog was born. I’m currently working two jobs while studying to become a NCSF Certified Sport Nutrition Specialist. In between obligations, I’m usually hanging out with my live-in boyfriend, Tim, and our demon cat son, Kevin Bacon, and most of that time is spent feeding them. If you want to learn more about me, check out my about me page.
Here on Food is my Frenemy, you’ll find many things, most of them revolving around my favorite thing: Food. If you want to find out more about what will be here, check out about the site.
