Being Body Positive

It has been a busy few weeks over here and my usual workout routine has been put on the back burner.  When my weeks are not busy, I like to workout 3-4 times a week and this includes going to a spin class on Saturday morning.  Last Saturday and this Saturday, my day is taken up by family visits (yay!).  With that being said, I have been missing my usual spin classes and I've mentally had to tell myself that it is okay.

Body Shaming to Body Loving

To be honest, I've been super crampy and moody lately.  Last week, I was on an emotional roller coaster and this past weekend, the cramping and bloating was real.  During this time (especially over the weekend), I found myself hating on my body.  Yes, I'm a Food Freedom Coach that specializes in food freedom and body love; but this does not mean that I'm perfect.  Like you, I still have my struggles.  I have them under control after years self-healing and therapy, but every now and again they pop up.

Bingeing and Restricting

I feel as though there are two major opposing forces in the health and wellness world right now: diet mentality versus intuitive eating.  One person is telling you to go Paleo or do Whole30 and the other is telling you to "simply" listen to your body.  There are too many dietary theories out there and I'm so over feeling like there is a right and wrong way to eat.  Who's with me?
