  • Books that Changed my Life

    It’s crazy to look back and realize that a book literally changed my life. I’m a pretty big reader anyway – I usually burn through 2-3 books a week. So while yes, I do read a lot, it also means that the ones that stand out are extra special. I realized I kept telling people […]

  • Episode 21: All About Boundaries Part 2

    Episode 21: All About Boundaries Part 2

    Personal boundaries are about self trust and self respect. When you can trust yourself to follow through on what you say you’re going to do, you build respect for yourself. Following through includes sticking to boundaries that you have set.  Since we talked about boundaries with ourselves in the last episode, this episode we’re going […]

  • Are You Sure You Can’t?

    It’s something I hear all of the time. Heck, it’s something that I used to get caught up in all of the time. And it’s the concept of “I can’t.” People love to talk about what they ‘can’t’ do. They can’t run a marathon, they can’t ask for a raise, they can’t start the business, […]

  • Episode 19: How the G Word can Change your Life

    Episode 19: How the G Word can Change your Life

    What are you grateful for? Beyond the roof over your head, the food in your belly, and your family, what are you grateful for? If this question is difficult for you, you’re not alone. So many people struggle to see the good things in life, and unfortunately it’s biological. Our brains are geared to finding […]

  • Confidence through Movement

    I walked past the mirror and looked at my flabby body up and down for the fiftieth time today. All I saw was a bloated face with a ridiculous second chin. I saw the hanging gut, the thighs with too much jiggle, and a sagging butt. I didn’t see any beauty in my body at […]

  • Episode 18: What are you consuming?

    Episode 18: What are you consuming?

    What are you allowing to fill you? What are you consuming on a regular basis? These questions are a lot more important than we think. We have become so desensitized to what we’re given on a regular basis that we don’t even realize how harmful it is to us and our wellbeing. When I say […]

  • Episode 17: Do you receive compliments?

    Episode 17: Do you receive compliments?

    When someone compliments you, what’s your initial reaction? How do you respond? What is your physical reaction to receiving a compliment? I ask this because how you receive compliments is a direct correlation with how you feel about yourself, about your personal self worth. How you receive compliments gives your brain crucial information when it […]

  • A Letter to my Body

    Dear Body, I want to start off with an apology. I know I haven’t always treated you well. Not only did I not fully know what you needed, I straight up ignored you when you tried to tell me. I’m sorry about the abuse you went through by my own hand. I’m sorry for the […]

  • Episode 16: Do you believe you’re Deserving?

    Episode 16: Do you believe you’re Deserving?

    Have you ever thought about how you’re allowed to feel? What about what you deserve to feel? I feel like we’ve gotten so desensitized to what that even means. We say we deserve better – yet we stay in the crappy situations. Whether it’s an abusive relationship, a so so relationship, a job we don’t […]

  • Screw the Scale

    I woke up excited and jumped out of bed. Today was the day. Today was the day that I was going to see the scale drop. I went to the bathroom and stayed on the toilet for at least 15 minutes after I was done. Just to make sure there’s nothing left that could impact […]
