Let’s get real. The holiday season is in full swing. We’re getting swept up in parties, gift-giving, family time, and of course potlucks and holiday feast mode.

So believe me, I understand if your needs have gotten bumped down a few notches in your priority list Continue reading “LoveBites: 3 Ways to Temper the Holiday Madness”

Setting a goal gives you something to strive for. It encourages you to move forward and do the work to even approach the vicinity of achieving it.
Sure, it may not turn out the way you thought or hoped – but imagine the gains you might make in the process.
Consider a goal like “lose weight”. We all approach it differently, and our results will speak to that. If your intention in “losing weight” is simply to “get thin” or “lose my belly”, you may be disappointed if you don’t achieve exactly that.
BUT what did you gain in the process? Example: physical strength and endurance – maybe you don’t have slender ballerina limbs like you thought you would, but your arms and legs are now thick with firm rockin muscle that make it easier to dance all night at your best friend’s wedding or go on that awesome hiking adventure with your partner, you can breathe more easily after running to catch a bus, your stress level comes way down, and your medical blood work shows lower risk factors for CVD, diabetes, etc.
If you don’t reach your exact goal, reframe and celebrate what you’ve gained.
Need someone to help you set those goals and reframe? Hit me up.
I have a confession to make. I’ve been a bit of a sugar and carb addict.
Over the last several months – probably more like years – I found I seemed to need coffee (and lots of it) to get through my day. I reached for a matcha coconut latte with coconut sugar or maple syrup, often paired with chocolate, every afternoon. And at night, on my most stressful days – and it felt like there were a lot of them – I’d also sit in front of the TV eating rice pasta, pad Thai, Kettle chips, and macaroons.
At the time, I didn’t realize how much all that sugar was impacting my energy. Continue reading “[Quiz] What’s causing your energy to bottom out?”
I’m like you. I scroll through my Instagram feed, double-tapping lovely photos and those with lovely captions, inspired by all the pretty things and places, words and FOOD. With so many people sharing snapshots of their day-to-day lives and the lives to which they aspire, disseminated virtually everywhere in seconds, social trends crop up and spread unbelievably fast.
I’ve been there, through smoothie bowls and Buddha bowls, avotoast and sweet potato toast, nice cream and zoodles, and now – rainbow unicorn everything. Continue reading “Finding Self-Care in Food Trends”
So here I am, back again, after a season-long technological hiatus. These past 14 months have been a rollercoaster, reaching the apex just over 2 months ago, and now finally leveling out to near-normalcy again.
