Live in Freedom

Live in Freedom

There was a time when I felt very stuck. 

I kept trying to get a grip on my life, but nothing worked.

I had a watchful eye on everything I did, everything I ate. I counted calories, I took laxatives or over-exercised if I went past my desired caloric amount (or even if I didn't). I felt totally out of control with money, and I put myself in self-compromising positions because I didn't know what boundaries felt like. 

Every morning I'd wake up and hate the way I felt. I hate the way I looked. I felt completely trapped in a perpetual state of self-hatred and inner shame. 

My Big Secret

My Big Secret

I believe it is possible to heal.

I firmly believe you can heal from emotional eating, bulimia, anorexia, body hating, body shame, over-exercising, addiction to laxatives and disconnection from your body.... among other things. 

I believe it's possible because if I can do it, so can you. 

But I have a secret to tell you... there's one thing I don't always talk about that is THE. MOST. IMPORTANT. THING. when it comes to changing your life and healing you relationship with your body and food. 

All the books, coaching, journaling, retreats, and workshops can only get you so far. There's one thing that catalyzes positive change like no other and keeps you where you want to be. 

Here's my big secret:

3 Ways To Make Any Meal Magical

3 Ways To Make Any Meal Magical

Why have a boring meal when you can make it magical? 

I used to be really busy, so I ate really quickly.

If I was trying to be healthy, I'd gulp down a protein smoothie or hurry through a bag of baby carrots. If I was tired, stressed, or emotional, I'd stuff a bunch of carbs or sugar in my face and feel awful about it for hours. 

How we do anything is how we do everything. The way we eat reflects the way we are living our lives.

Was I rushing through my life to get to the next thing and periodically making unconscious choices that felt good at first but ended up biting me in the ass? Oh yeah. 

Did I put tremendous pressure on myself to be perfect only to sabotage my progress and feel awful about myself? Every day.

When I learned to make every meal magical—to enjoy what I ate (regardless of its nutrition facts), and delight in the mystical side of eating, my entire life changed.
