How Lack Of Presence In Your Life Can Manifest As Binge Eating

How Lack Of Presence In Your Life Can Manifest As Binge Eating

It’s common to think that you just don’t have willpower around food.  It’s common to label some foods as good and others as bad.  It’s common to try to think your way out of binge eating and compulsive overeating with more rules, restrictions and plans.  Just because something is common, doesn’t mean it’s normal or healthy.  When you stop looking for that external fix and start looking under the food and doing the internal work you discover many things.  A recent discovery I had is that binge eating was a symptom of not taking up space in other areas of my life.  Binge eating manifested as a way to have presence, as a way to be seen.

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

Diet culture tells us that when we lose weight we will therefore become happy, popular, successful and more. It shames us into thinking that we aren’t good enough and that our bodies are somehow wrong if they don’t fit societal ideals of the thin, lean body. Diet culture basically tells us that we’ll get everything we want in life if we just lose weight. This is a fallacy as diet’s not only don’t work but they won’t create the feelings and experiences we’re really hungry for.  The truth is, we lose far more than just weight when we go on a diet.

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

I learned at a young age, like many of us do, that my body was my worth. Society and the media portray this message loud and clear. Even family members who have been taught the same thing can pass this message on to us. This can lead down a slippery slope of seeking external validation from others, and the problem is we will never feel good enough until we accept ourselves first. Read More

I Experienced My First Hater

I Experienced My First Hater

I experienced my first hater last month. Someone who completely disagreed with what I was saying, actually missed the point of my post and told me some interesting things, including that I was addicted to animal products (which isn’t a thing, just in case you were wondering) and processed foods, promoting poisons and actually feeding “the problem,” not helping it.

Why Empowered Vitality?

Why Empowered Vitality?

Why Empowered Vitality? I had someone ask me once what my business name means and then say he didn’t like it. This made me sit down and think about why I chose this name and even considered changing it, because it’s not immediately clear what I do.  I’ve decided to keep it and I’ll explain more about what it means to me and how I got to the point of naming a business in the first place!

4 Reasons You Should Get Rid Of Your Scale

Oh the scale, that hunk of useless metal that far too many women let affect their happiness.  I get it.  I mean I used to step on that thing multiple times a day and the number was never low enough.  And when it went up, look out because the rest of the day was a right off.  Suddenly my clothes felt uncomfortable and I would either end up eating more because I felt worthless or I would start to plan my new diet and exercise regime.

Why The Comment, “You Look Skinny” Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

Why The Comment, You Look Skinny Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

It used to make me feel so good about myself when people told me I was thin or looked skinny. It boosted my self-esteem when people praised me on my physique and fitness level. During that time I based my worth on what my body looked like, the number on the scale and how “fit” I was. Read More

Why AffirmationsDon't Work & What To Do Instead

I’m a big believer in the law of attraction and manifesting what we want in our lives.  I have seen in my own life how harnessing my thoughts and changing my mindset can create real change.  Affirmations are one way we’re often told will help us get there but they don’t always work.  I share why in my video below, Why Affirmations Don’t Work & What To Do Instead.
