How to Quiet Your Inner Bully & Feel More Confident

One of the reasons why I love yoga so much (and most recently hot pilates) is that I can go into a room and think about nothing except moving my body and my breath for an entire hour. It’s one of the most freeing hours of my day. Partially because I’m so grounded that there’s no room for my inner bully. You know, that little negative voice – that we all have – that pops out every now and then? And sometimes way more than we’d ever care to admit ...

How to Use Your Intuition to Make Decisions

I used to do this thing. I’ve seen many friends do it too. And in all truth, I still can be guilty of it. So I have to catch myself and regroup. What is this thing that I’m so curiously alluding to? It’s asking everyone’s opinion and forgetting yours. Here’s an example: Once, before an evening out, I showed my family and husband two possible outfits. Out of the two outfits, outfit number two was the for-sure winner. But, I personally liked outfit number one best. Yet, I still decided ...

If Social Media is Making You Feel Bad, Please Read This

My husband and I were on the couch the other night watching This is Us. During one of the scenes with all the school-aged kids, “the big three,” my husband looked at me and said, “Is that what you were like with your friends as a kid?” He said it in this cute, playful tone. I paused, smiled, and casually said, “No, I didn’t really have any school friends until I was in the sixth grade.” I didn’t realize how sad that sounded until it came out of my mouth ...

When Should You Sleep with Him? A Simple Way to See if You’re Ready to be Intimate

As a former matchmaker and today, as a dating coach, I get this question a lot. To be truthful, this question is something I thought about a lot during my dating days. And something that I’ve talked about with girlfriends a lot. The question in question? When should I sleep with him? I actually googled this question online just to see what would come up. And a lot came up. So before I answer this question, I want you to know that every person and every situation is different. And ...

Change Your Story. Change Your Life.

A few years ago, I participated in a very small yoga teacher training. On day one, we had to introduce ourselves and “share our story.” My introduction went something like this, “Hi, I’m Corinne. I’m a Dietitian and coach, and I just moved here after a breakup. I was dumped.” Translation? I made my story “I’m the girl who got dumped.” This sad story got me nowhere except pity and more sadness. And the recommendation to go home and “eat a bunch of ice cream.” Womp, womp… It was obvious. ...

How to Move on When Someone Says Unkind Things About Your Body or You

I overheard the conversation from the hall. No one knew I was there. Well, except me. I could hear her telling my mom that my sister and I were chunky. And “getting rather large” and it’d be best if we lost some weight, especially “Corinne.” I was 11-years-old. At 11, I hadn’t heard of this concept of ‘weight.’ Let alone, someone “getting rather large.” Sure, I was teased a lot by other little kids. Who would make jokes about my frizzy hair or bad acne. I had horrible, horrible acne. ...

Do You Make this Dating (& Life) Mistake?

During my matchmaker days, clients would weed possible love interests out … Before even meeting them. Based on things like height, hair color, or geographic location. I’d often hear: I need someone at least 5’10’’. I can’t date anyone shorter. Sorry, but anyone I’m going to date has to to live within a 15-mile radius. I’ll only date brunettes. Sometimes the lists would be so long my eyeballs would glaze over halfway down the page. And lots of times, clients would insist they meet someone open-minded. Right after they forked ...

A Mistake Most Women Trying to Feel Healthier & Happier Make

  My husband’s legs are smaller than mine. I remember when I first realized this during our dating days. I walked right up next to him, put my thigh next to his thigh and exclaimed, “My legs are bigger than yours!” My ego wanted him to say, “No, they’re not.” Even though I knew they were. But instead, he said, “Yea, so?” I stared at him a few seconds not knowing what to say. I felt hurt and frustrated at the same time. But, I knew these feelings weren’t logical. ...

Are Your Too-Small Jeans Keeping You Stuck?

I used to have this pair of jeans. They were tiny and not representative of my body’s true frame, like at all. But I clung onto them. For the simple fact that they were small, I used to be able to fit into them and to be totally honest because I hoped to maybe be able to wear them again… But then, one random day, I realized I was never going to wear them again. And, it was more than OK. Because the crazy things I did to fit into ...

How to Craft an Online Dating Profile to Attract Your Ideal Partner

A few months ago, I got married. One of the things our wedding officiant declared during our wedding ceremony was, “Corinne has been with over 100 different guys ….” Oh. My. God. Did I really just hear that? {Face palm} I could feel my insides burning… If you were at the ceremony, you would’ve seen the look of shock and horror accompanied by an embarrassing wave of red slowly consume my entire face. I couldn’t believe it.   Dating is a numbers game Two days after the wedding, my grandmother ...
