Surrender & Acceptance

“Why would your body ever surrender to you when all you’ve done is not accept it” That quote was like a sucker punch. I’ve spent so much energy working on my relationship with my body and I still catch myself in moments of not accepting it. I realized recently how much diet culture I grew…

Meet fear with love.

Hi Friends! It’s been a while! Who thought we’d be living through a global pandemic and life would get flipped on its head?! How are you doing? What does life look like for you now? As most of you know I’m a manager at a pharmacy so life has been crazy. We started to get…

Listening to the incredible Mark Groves podcast and he drops this truth bomb: “You don’t just get to feel how you fucking want to feel. You have to choose your way towards it”. I encounter people all the time who want to feel differently about certain situations or want to be triggered less but aren’t…

When it stops working, stop.

Sometimes things stop working. It’s simply a fact of life. I find people, myself included, struggle when this happens with our lifestyle choices. Fasting is a great example. As you all know I’ve been a fan of fasting for years! I love the ease of only eating twice a day. I love how it makes…

Acknowledging ourselves.

I think sometimes we downplay progress. We’ll make one little choice and won’t think it’s a big deal so don’t acknowledge ourselves for it. It’s been coming up for me recently with the people I’m talking to. Whether it’s something as simple as choosing a slightly healthier snack, or showing up more present for a…

We don’t need a new you…

It might be a new year but that doesn’t mean we need a new you. I hate that message. It implies there is something wrong with the current you. This is a major problem in our society. Let’s tell people they are broken and sell them the cure for it. New year, new you –…

Surviving Vs Thriving

Our bodies are pretty damn capable of surviving whatever we throw at them. We can eat shitty food, stay up too late, over caffeinate ourselves, drink too much alcohol, and not exercise and we’ll generally be ok. We may feel sleep deprived, sluggish, and not our best a lot of the time but we’re surviving….

I’m not at home.

I’m not at home in my body. I know that everyone reading this understands what I’m saying. I’ve spent years trying to get to a place of feeling at home. I’ve had times when I’ve felt at home – but it never lasted. Why? Because home was a reflection of my size. Home was only…

Good Food review!

I was recently gifted a free Good Food box. They are a meal planning delivery company. Each week you get to pick the meals you want and all the things you need get delivered. I was gifted two free meals – I paid to add a third meal just because I felt like it would…

Follow what lights you up.

From the outside looking in I imagine it looks easy. I just show up and share my food, mindset or spirituality stuff, and perhaps a blog post. The thought behind my blogs comes across and the feedback is people like what I have to say. In the past couple of weeks I’ve had 3 separate…
