Here it comes… the Reeses. The Hershey Bars. The M&Ms. The Starburst…and dare I say it? The candy corn. Yes, I know candy corn is very polarizing to some (and I’m not sure why because it’s the best)… so if you don’t like candy corn, there is no place for you here. Just kidding. But […]
Let’s talk cortisol. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe not. If you have, there’s a good chance you’ve just shrugged and kept it moving. It’s important. Especially important when it comes to weight loss and living our best life. How cortisol affects health is real, and it may even tempt you to lower your stress […]
Guys – I love the fall. Like, freaking loooooove it. My birthday is in September (hey my virgo peeps), football is my favorite sport in the whole world, I love oversized sweaters, hiking, being outside… I mean everything the fall is about is my jam. I mean for real, what’s not to like? Bring on […]
The all-or-nothing mentality with food is real f*ck up. It messes up your brain, it messes up your thought process, and it messes up other areas of your life. It for suuuuuure messes up your body. This mentality, along with many other cognitive distortions completely halt healing your relationship with food. Not only will you […]
Okay, okay… hear me out. Before you race to the pantry and grab your favorite food, I am not talking about jumping at your cravings every moment of the day. You know that isn’t what I’m about. This is all about when you are hungry, and eating what you want in that moment. You need […]
My old brain used to say things like, ‘I wish someone would tell me what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, and why to eat it, then I’ll get to where I want to be.’ Just short of someone spoon feeding me, I tried that. For years. Every other day I would […]
We’ve all done it – the weight loss challenges. The 30 day *insert rule* challenge. The 21 day who-knows-what. ‘Biggest Loser’ at work every New Years. Challenge at your gym? Sign a girl up – I am winning that Chili’s gift card! weight loss challenges keep you in the cycle. That may have been hard […]
Choosing what to eat can bring on a whole bunch of emotions. These emotions all stem from two places; whether your food choices come from empowerment or fear. To truly have food freedom, the inner, subconscious voice of fear has no place in your life no mo’. We fail at food freedom due to fear. […]
There are times ‘food freedom’ gets a bad rap. When discussing the overall concepts of this way of living, many people turn and run. What do you mean, you can eat whatever you want? Being told you can eat whatever you want is scary. It’s scary because it’s the complete opposite of everything you’ve been […]
Aaah, summertime. Sun, beach, pool, parties, pool parties. Having to be in a bathing suit, hating your body, comparing yourself to everyone, trying to navigate how to stay on your diet when burgers and hot dogs are staring you in the face? If you’re struggling to not be obsessed with food, this can sound like […]
Hi friend and welcome! I hope you love a taste of sarcasm, real talk, and someone who is going to tell you pretty much the exact opposite of what diet culture has ingrained in your (read: everyones) brains.
I’m a health coach whose view of health is not being obsessed with food, enjoying exercise again, and changing the thoughts happening between your ears. If you’re looking for macros, a meal plan, or someone who’s going to monitor your weight, you’ve got the wrong girl. But if you’ve come this far, I’m pretty sure you knew that already.
But I promise you… going about health in a normal, mindful, stress-free way will change your life. For good.
