The 11 Most Powerful Phrases You Should be Using More

What we tell ourselves shapes our outside world. The problem is most of us aren’t really aware of the things we’re saying to ourselves until we start tuning-in. And then, it’s easy to get freaked out because the things we’re saying are usually pretty gosh-darn harsh. So instead of thinking about what you need to be thinking and saying less, start thinking about what you need to be thinking and saying more. Below you’ll find 11 powerful phrases that’ve helped hundreds of coaching clients and can help you too. More ...

Read This When Your Heart Aches, You Feel Like You’ve Failed & You Feel Like No One Understands (it’ll help)

Pain – the kind where you can’t remember when you last washed your hair, you only leave the house when food becomes necessary to eat, and you wake up every morning with your heart aching deep in your chest – has caused some of the most awesomely miraculous change in my life. Now, if you were to tell me at these times how good my pain would eventually be for me, I would’ve rolled my eyes, wished our conversation was over, and returned to my computer… trying to work. Now ...

Mindful Eating 101 & What You Really Need to Know

Years ago, I remember – vaguely – someone explaining mindful eating to me. Mindful eating, I was told, was where you’re fully present in your eating experience. You’re aware of your hunger level, fullness factor, your food’s taste and texture, it’s aroma, etc. There are no “off-limit” foods. No counting calories. And for sure no formal meal plans. I – being someone who grew up watching (and hearing) their mother relentlessly count calories to remain at a healthy weight … and being someone who followed suit – was petrified of ...

What You Really Need Instead of Another Diet…

I’ve literally spent years working on becoming comfortable speaking my truth. Telling a friend I didn’t like the way their actions made me feel. Voicing to a boyfriend that his comment really made me feel unwanted. Speaking up about frustrations at work with no sense of fear or concern – just raw, total, and utter honesty. Is this something that comes naturally? No. At least not for me. It’s something I practice. Something I show up for. Because now that I’ve done it – I know there’s no going back ...

8 Rules Confident Happy Women Live By

  The other week, I wrapped-up my last group coaching call with an amazing group of kind, caring, compassionate women who set the groundwork for a healthier life in all areas – food, their body, themselves. On the call, I was discussing what the most successful women do after they finish the program. Of course, what was a bit surprising was that the majority of the points weren’t actions, but ways of thinking, or viewing the world, really. I wanted to share these viewpoints with you because if you really ...

What Most Women Don’t Realize & How It’s Blocking Your Health & Happiness

I’ve always had a problem creating healthy boundaries. My tendency is always to say YES. These last couple of years I’ve worked to have that not be the case. To rewrite that script. And luck have it, the other day, my story had the chance to be rewritten. And I realized (front, dead and center) one of the coolest lessons. So cool, in fact, I just had to share it with you. So – the other day – a note popped up on my phone. An acquaintance, someone who I ...

8 Books Every Woman Who Wants More Happiness Should Read

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to read. In high school, one of my favorite things to do on a weekend morning was to finish the next chapter in whatever addictive chick-lit book I was devouring. Today, while I still love a good juicy read, one of my favorite things to do (especially when I need some nuggets of inspiration) is to pick up a book that connects on a soul level.   Below are 8 of my favorite spiritual, self-help  personal development books. They’ve provided me ...

Trying to Lose Weight? Ask Yourself These 3 Questions

  So often I hear shame, frustration, guilt, anger, resentment, and sometimes a deep sense of hopelessness about food being the enemy from my kind, caring, compassionate clients – and I get it – I’ve been there. It’s not a fun place to be in. In fact, it sucks. But today, I want to ask you to open your mind and be willing to shift your perspective. You with me? Because what I’m about to tell you may be very different from everything you’ve ever been told. But hang with ...

How to Not Let Negative People Suck Your Energy

    After giving a talk, someone asked me how to keep their energetic boundaries. Basically, how to not take on others’ pain, anger, resentment, pessimistic outlook on life, or really, whatever negative mojo is running through them.   This is a key question because when we do take on others’ “stuff,” we’re way more likely to be living in a burnt out, overwhelmed, and disconnected space. And it’s in this space that we ignore our true wants and desires and give into the quick fix, to numb or to ...

10 Reminders Any Woman on a Wellness Journey Needs to Remember About Food

When I was deep in my body-shaming days, I was obsessed with women’s mags and online articles, touting the latest cellulite-busting, waist-whittling, six-pack designing diets. And celeb rags talking about their weight loss and hot-bod secrets? I ate them up, like thick butter-drenched slices of French bread … just like a carb-craving (hungry) woman … after swearing off bread for a week.   My dysfunctionally functional relationship with food and my body was – well – one of the reasons I got into the nutrition field. I wanted to learn ...
