Ep #222: Purposeful Adversity

4/13/2021
Today I’m talking about a topic that, I admit, is steeped in privilege: purposeful adversity. I recognize that the majority of humans on this earth do not need to put themselves into adverse circumstances on purpose because adversity is already their reality. But for those of you listening who have a really nice life and don’t often face a lot of adversity, this is an episode you’ll want to tune into. I’m talking about the importance of adversity for growth and how this concept relates to so...

Ep #219: Experimentation

3/23/2021
Today's topic is such an important one that I’m dedicating a whole episode to it. What am I talking about? Experimentation. We don’t know exactly what is going to work to support your body, but we can always figure it out by trying new things and seeing what works—and what doesn’t. In this episode, I’m inviting you to reconsider how you approach experimentation when it comes to weight loss so you can take away the drama and begin trusting your body again.

Ep #218: Permission To Be Human

Ep #213: Belief Setpoints

2/9/2021
There might be something holding you back and affecting the way you show up in this life that you’re not even aware of: your beliefs. What many of us don’t fully understand is that we can actually limit ourselves with our beliefs because we think we’re telling ourselves the truth about what we believe—whether it’s what our bodies can do, what we can achieve in life, or how much weight we can lose. So in this episode, I’m talking about the concept of belief setpoints and how once we start to...

Desire. We all have it, but how many of us actually really consider where it comes from?
