Have a Happy Healthy Holiday!

Have a Happy Healthy Holiday!

Sometimes health feels like this train you’re on. You get “on” the right track and you fear that if you steer (even slightly) “off-course” that you’ll go completely off the rails and never find your way “back on track.” After years of having a rather tumultuous relationship with health + fitness it’s totally fair to feel this way. In fact you’re not alone, most people I talk to have this same experience! There is so much mystery around motivation and what really works that if you’re like most people you’ve come to fear any minor deviation from what’s currently working. So you don’t adjust course AT ALL. But all this being “on track” is stealing all the joy, so you decide to “cut your losses” and “start fresh in the new year.” And you wouldn’t be wrong to do that….but what if there’s another way?

Keep Moving: Don’t Let Summer Hijack your Fitness!

Keep Moving: Don’t Let Summer Hijack your Fitness!

Feeling a little MEH about MOVING this time of year?! It’s not just you! There’s so much going on and it’s easy to fall away from your fitness routines. So instead of “writing off” the summer, get creative. Build out your “movement zone” – decide on a daily goal for movement. It might be a certain number of steps, or a specified amount of time working out each day or a specific number of days per week.

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

The other day I was chatting with a group of women around the topics of body love, self-compassion & health. In hushed tones one of them shyly asked me, “can I love my body…and still want to lose weight?” She asked me as though it was some dirty little secret, that somehow she couldn’t desire to change her body – and still love her body. That the two ideas were somehow contradictory. And I realized that there was a need for clarification!

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Being body positive is about so much more than feeling comfortable & happy in your body. It’s about the lens through which you view your world. It’s about the attitude you take to your life and how you “show up.” It’s about the confidence with which you carry yourself and the unstoppable spirit that you possess. You are capable of so much more than you know. And it all starts with a belief in your ability to do whatever it is you decide YOU want to do. #besuperyou

Be Body Positive #11: Change the Conversation

Be Body Positive #11: Change the Conversation

If I could speak up now, this is what I would say: “This is my body, and how I choose to feed it is solely up to me. I know you are well meaning, and I love you, but I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t comment on my choices.” And you might think that sounds harsh, but the bottom line is that it IS my choice – my body, my choices – your commentary isn’t necessary or welcome.
