One of the biggest hurdles to consistency is an obvious one - lack of food preparedness. The answer to that is usually to meal prep everything on a Sunday, so you can just grab your food containers and go. I’ve done this too. And I think it works really well for a lot of people.
So if you find yourself conscious of being knee-deep in a habit you don’t like, remember that your fresh start can happen whenever you want. At the end of this hour, this minute, or even this very second. You can choose something better for yourself right now.
Recently I realized I’d fallen into a specific morning routine: wake up, roll over, pick up phone and scrooooooll. It wasn’t always like this. Earlier this year (which feels like ages ago), I was a morning self-care machine. HydrateYogaMeditateWork outGo on being super productive. squad Then I moved.

I’ve been in eating disorder recovery since 2015, and over the past 3 years, I’ve been actively working towards eating intuitively - giving up all diet plans, calorie counting and food measuring to instead just eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full. I tend to call it “eating like a normal person” and… Continue reading Eating Intuitively – How I Do It, and How Covid-19 Has Played a Role
Much of the world is deep into self-isolation right now. Personally, I’m on day twenty-three (not that I’m counting every minute or anything).

And many, if not most, of us probably feel MORE stress due to this temporary lack of access. I’m going to challenge you to use some the the suggestions… Continue reading Mitigating Training Stress: Working-out vs Working-in
I want to tell you how my Sunday went. First, here’s how I intended it to go: Wake up at 7am, do some yoga, meditate, drink coffee. Shower and get pretty. Eyebrow wax at 10:15am. Some self-care, you know. Meet two of my closest friends at one of my favorite brunch places at 11am. Eat… Continue reading Shift Your Mindset with This Practice
So far, we’ve covered what stress IS, and the first step to decreasing our chronic stress: getting enough quality sleep. Now we’re going to tackle a subject that may give rise to your stress response on its own: how and what you eat. Acute and chronic stressors can bring out some pretty severe changes in… Continue reading Eating Under Stress: The Why and How (to cope)
I spent last weekend doing a bunch of things I LOVE: traveling, meeting great new people, going on fun outdoor adventures, eating lots of amazing food and drinking a lot of wine. And while I really do adore all of these things, they’re also extremely draining for my introverted, just-getting-over-burnout self. When I take vacations,… Continue reading The Soft Reset: Bouncing Back After Over-Indulging
