Why does society have such a hard time with women who swear? And more importantly, why do we feel the need to tell people they should change to suit our preferences? The topic of swearing is a personal one for me, and I've received plenty of feedback over the years telling me I'd be more successful or likable if I cleaned up my word choice. Make no mistake, this is a 5 chili episode. In this episode, I'm exploring the internal biases we have about people who swear, the reasons why people...

The Pulse

It's no secret that on the Fierce Love Friday edition of this podcast, I often talk (and rant) about issues facing my community around health and wellness. But today, I'm taking a slightly different approach and pulling back the curtain on what went well – and didn't – in 2018, plus taking a look at what's to come this year and considering the bottom line. I was inspired to record this show based on Paul Jarvis's weekly dispatch email. Transparency is something that's often lacking in the...

My 2019 Theme

There's something about the new year that symbolizes a fresh start. For many, it's also a chance to sit down, reflect, and set intentions for the year. Me personally? I've found resolutions to not be very useful in the past. A few years ago, I shifted my strategy and started setting yearly themes instead. They've worked out so much better for me than standard new year's resolutions, and today I'm sharing why. In this episode, I'm exploring the ways that yearly themes have challenged me yet...

The Fucket List

You've probably heard of bucket lists, the things you want to do before you kick the bucket. But did you know there's an opposite concept called the fucket list? It's basically all the stuff you're cool with never doing – or never doing again – in your life. And though it's important to know what you want, I think it's also really clutch to know what you don't want. In this episode, I'm exploring the idea about what a fucket list is and why you might want to make your own. I'm also talking...

With the New Year right around the corner, there's been a lot of talk lately about toning. Naturally. It's the time of year when people re-assess their fitness, nutrition, and health in general. And if you hang around in women's fitness spaces, toning will come up. It's not a matter of if, but rather a matter of when. In this episode, I'm exploring why women use the word toning, what it really means, and the unspoken layers of meaning associated with it. I don't purport to have all the...

Why Safer Skincare Matters

Everyone's health and wellness journey unfolds differently, and the things we choose to focus on first can vary. For me, it was food and movement that came first. Several years later, I finally began to think about what I was putting on my body – my skincare routine – as a piece of the puzzle (especially considering I have endometriosis and I'm more mindful of the products I use now). In this episode, I'm sharing a bit more about why safer skincare options matter for your health and talking...

Endometriosis is a painful condition that so many women suffer with in silence. I am one of those women.

Ever since childhood, I've been labeled as shy or sensitive...and it's often been used in a derogatory way. I never understood until just a couple years ago that I'm what's called a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). HURRAH! There was finally a term to describe part of the way I experience the world. And it's not just me. It's estimated that nearly 1 in 5 people is highly sensitive. In this episode, I'm sharing about how (and when) I learned about being HSP. I'm also telling you some of the...

Health Coach Confessions

It's easy to think that health and fitness experts each perfectly, exercise perfectly, and live perfect lives...especially given what you see on social media and the Internet at large. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. Not only is it unrealistic to think that health coaches don't have struggles, it often leads to you setting up impossible standards for yourself. When left unchecked, the cycle of on the wagon / off the wagon can go on for years. In this episode, I'm letting...
