Taking Care of Number One

Girl, last week was insane for me.  I have to say, it was probably the most stressful week I've had in a really long time.  I was so incredibly busy that my self-care routine went completely out the window.  My main focus last week was getting enough sleep so I could get through my hectic schedule.  My self-care was non-existent and I found myself in a funk by the end of the week.

Lesson learned.

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.

Post-Christmas Thoughts

Which woman are you today?

On Leggings and Body Image

This past weekend, I overheard women discussing leggings, who should wear them, and who should not.  I was annoyed (to say the least) that it was two women discussing this.  I wonder why young girls are going on diets and talking about how much they hate their bodies.  Can't we all just wear whatever makes us feel comfortable and confident without someone judging us?
