33 Things I Learned In My 33rd Year: Part 2

33 Things I Learned In My 33rd Year

I shared part 1 of this post on 33 Things I Learned In My 33rd Year last week.  With so much learning and growth, I’m excited to see what my 34th year will bring.  I intend to go deeper into what I’m learning.  Deeper into my connection with my body and intuition.  Deeper with my connection to my inner child and higher self.  Deeper into feeling my pain.  Surrender will help me let go so I can experience this depth.  I’m actually starting this year out attending a retreat to do all of this at the end of the month.

33 Things I Learned In My 33rd Year

Today is my 33rd birthday and being right around the new year, it always leads to reflection of the previous year.  This past year has been an immense year of learning and growth for me.  I did my 200hrs yoga teacher training, worked with a psychologist and am 7 months into a certification which will allow me to help women as a coach to stop binge eating, by doing spiritual development work. This year I finally went deeper than mindset and began the process of peeling back the layers to get closer to my the core of who I am. I wanted to share 33 things I learned in my 33rd year on this planet. Read More

My Word For The Year Of 2018 Is Surrender

My Word For The Year Of 2018 Is Surrender

Each new year I choose a word to set my intention for the year. This is my third year doing this and although I’ve never been into resolutions, I enjoy having an intention to come back to throughout the year.  I’ve chosen growth and connection in the past.  This last year was an immense year of learning and growth. I went the deepest I’ve ever gone into peeling back the layers of who I’m not and it’s just the beginning.  My birthday coincides closely with the new year so I’ve written a 2 part post on all the things I’ve learned, which I will be sharing next week.  Something that’s come up time and time again this year and with this work, is the need for me to surrender and release all control. So, going into 2018 my word is surrender. I want to fully surrender to the flow of the universe and let myself be divinely guided. Read More

Triggers Are An Opportunity For Growth

Triggers Are An Opportunity For Growth

In the disordered eating recovery world, there’s a lot of talk about identifying your triggers to avoid falling into a binge. To be honest this work never really helped me because it was again focused on the symptom and didn’t go deep enough. It kept me focused on the surface triggers that led to me binge eating like not drinking enough water, not getting enough sleep, starting the day with sugar, being bored, feeling sad, etc.  Once I knew my triggers I was then supposed to make plans to prevent those triggers from leading to a binge.  Plans like calling a friend, going for a walk, drinking a glass of water, etc. All of this just kept me at surface level, never really dealing with the deeper, underlying issues.

Are You Really Speaking Your Truth Or Just Using It As An Excuse?

Are You Really Speaking Your Truth Or Using It As An Excuse?

We hear of the importance of speaking our truth and using our voices all the time and I agree. I am learning though that there is a big difference between speaking our truth, which comes from our highest selves, to spewing words that come from our ego or wounded inner child. People can use speaking their truth as an excuse to say whatever is on their minds when they’re in a place of high emotionality. The truth is our minds aren’t always accurate or in alignment with our highest selves. Our minds create stories.  I learned this lesson the hard way recently.  Read More

Do You Need To Set Boundaries With Yourself?

Do You Need To Set Boundaries With Yourself?

We’ve all heard of setting boundaries with others so they don’t walk all over us and we fall into the people pleasing trap.  Been there, done that, still working on it!  But, have you ever thought of setting boundaries with yourself?  Sometimes we might feel resistance around doing something we know will make us feel better.  Other times we just find we struggle to actually put that thing into action and start that meditation practice or get that movement in.  Setting boundaries with ourselves keeps us accountable and helps us start to shift habits that don’t serve our best interest.

You Can Gain More By Consuming Less

You Can Gain More By Consuming Less

When I started on my journey of health it started out with physical health, therefore I consumed information on nutrition and exercise. Then I began to focus more on hormonal health and consumed information again on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress reduction and all things that support hormonal health. When I focused on my digestion, I did the same. Then I started to focus on my mental, emotion and spiritual health and again consumed all the information I could get my hands on in the form of podcasts, books, blogs, etc. Read More

Are You Confused About What Real Self-Love Is?

Are You Confused About What Real Self-Love Is?

Self-love is a hot topic these days and for good reason! The problem is, I’m noticing some confusion over what self-love really is. I recently had someone contact me asking me if I was interested in joining their self love challenge. This person went on to explain that the self-love challenge included workouts, a super flexible meal plan with portion control containers, superfoods meal replacement shake, as well as support and accountability. This actually kind of irritated me at first. Read More

Are You A Self-Sacrificer?

Are You A Self-Sacrificer?

You may think that’s a funny question, but self-sacrificing, also known as people pleasing is contributing to your struggle with food. The more I dig into the inner work for myself, the more I can see how much of a people pleaser I’ve been over the years. I can also see how much this has truly affected me in a negative way. It’s caused me to hold onto negative energy for years, which for a long time has been the perfect opportunity to numb with food. Read More
