I used to hate everything about my body and wanted desperately for it to be “perfect”. I wished that my dieting and exercising would get me that “perfect” body, but it never did. There is no perfect body and we need to stop wishing for a different body.Read More
A week before my beach vacation, I found myself judging my body. As my life and priorities change, so does my body - and I am learning how to be okay with that. My body used to be stronger and more in shape when my schedule was lighter and even more so when I restricted food. While I was going through this judgement cycle, a friend reached out to me to discuss the same exact issue. She was also preparing for a beach vacation and did not feel good about her body. We exchanged things we were struggling with and both agreed that we were being too hard on ourselves.Read More
Recently, I was reminded of how much pressure I used to put on myself about weight. I pressured myself to keep my weight under a certain number and celebrated when I was able to get there.

This past weekend, I did a photoshoot for my business. I needed a major picture upgrade and I finally got around to booking a great photographer. I am super excited to get my pictures and share some more food freedom and body love with you all!
You know what felt really good about doing this photoshoot - the fact that I never stressed about dieting or working out. In fact, I had ice cream both Thursday night and Friday night (my shoot was Saturday morning). In the weeks/days leading up to my shoot, I didn't restrict myself from eating what I wanted and I didn't over exhaust myself at the gym in order to lose some inches.Read More
Hey there! I hope your weekend was fabulous and the start to your week has been positive. This weekend was so great - I spent quality time alone during the day on Saturday and enjoyed a long walk on Sunday. I love having weekends that leave me feeling recharged and ready to take on a new week!
My me-time included a day of shopping (YES). I am not a huge shopper but this weekend, I was in the mood to buy all the things. While enjoying my me-time at the mall, I was reminded of how much I used to hate on my body.Read More
