Beat the Bathing Suit Blues

Beat the Bathing Suit Blues

Well, we are smack dab in the middle of bathing suit season. I would say for about 85% of the women I know, summer comes with great excitement, and a twinge of “ugh, that means I have to be seen in a bathing suit”… It’s crazy to think about how many emotions “being seen in a bathing suit” brings up for us. Next time you’re heading to the pool or beach, remember these 3 things: Find a suit you feel amazingly comfortable in. Finding a bathing suit that really fits your body is a game-changer. When you are wearing a suit

Two Awesome Announcements!

Two Awesome Announcements!

I have two awesome announcements for you today. 1. Healing From Within has OFFICIALLY opened its doors! I’m super excited for this program to finally be shared with the world. I began my business with this idea and it is finally come to fruition!  It is an 8-week online course that dives deep into some of the most common themes around food and eating struggles.  I finished my beta-launch of this program with some amazing woman, and it was truly a game-changer-both for them and me. Cristina, one of the gals in the program summed it up perfectly: “This program has truly been wonderful

Can Food Fill That Emptiness? AND A Sneak Peek…

Can Food Fill That Emptiness? AND A Sneak Peek…

I’m wrapping up the last week of the beta-launch of Healing From Within (which has been amazing BTW!).  One of the themes that has resurfaced constantly throughout the program is the issue of “filling the emptiness” with food. . In many different forms, the women in the program have asked, “I know I eat for something besides hunger. I know I eat when I feel empty, sad, and lonely. I know I eat to fill something inside myself. But if I don’t use food, then HOW do I make myself feel ‘full’?” This is such a big question. And essentially why I

Are You Too Critical of Yourself?

Are You Too Critical of Yourself?

This week I was putting the final touches on my flagship program, Healing From Within, and was battling crazy critical thoughts… What if it’s not perfect?  What if there are mistakes?  What if it’s not good enough?  What if it doesn’t help people?  I was scrutinizing each sentence, criticizing each module and second guessing everything I had written. I was about to rip my hair out, so I decided to go for a walk. The distractions of the city pulled me out of my mind, and it dawned on me… Why am I being SO critical of myself and my work? I know

Getting Through That “Body Discomfort” Feeling

Getting Through That “Body Discomfort” Feeling

It continues to amaze me just how many women (and men) struggle with some sort of weight issue, body distress, or eating struggle. I was discussing my business vision with a friend who admitted her own struggles with some of these issues to me: “Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin is a suffocating feeling and very difficult to handle when people look at you and think you’re crazy for thinking that or just don’t understand.” I so resonated with that. I remember feeling so uncomfortable in my body, so unhappy with my weight, and so distressed about my imperfections, that

If You Eat What You Want, Will You Get Fat?

If You Eat What You Want, Will You Get Fat?

When you’re obsessed with controlling your food intake, body size, and the number on the scale, the concept of “eating what you want” sounds foreign, frightening, and downright impossible.  We are convinced that if we allow ourselves to freely choose what we want to eat, we will inevitably gain 10, 15, 20 pounds. You think if you eat what you really want, you’ll just get fat! Our thoughts go something like this: If I eat what I want, my clothes will no longer fit. If I allow myself a dessert today, I’ll lose control of my diet. If I don’t carefully
