Have you ever found yourself trapped in the endless cycle of "shoulds"? You know, those nagging thoughts that tell you what you should be doing, how you should look, and who you should be? It's like having a not-so-helpful, naggy backseat driver living in your head, right?

But here's the kicker: does listening to those "shoulds" actually get you anywhere? Or do they just slow you down, leaving you feeling guilty and stuck?

Have you ever found yourself thinking ahead to when no one will be home and you can eat whatever you want - or how much of whatever you want - in secret without anyone to see? Maybe you wait till everyone is in bed, or you “do good” while you’re at work when others can see. But when you get home and you’re by yourself, it’s a different story. That can bring on so much shame. 

The same can be true of drinking. One of my most shamefu...

Have you ever felt like there’s more inside you that you’re not tapping into? Like  you're standing in the shadows of your own potential, afraid to step into the spotlight for fear of judgment? That nagging voice in your head says, “I know there’s more for me than this. There’s more I can do or give.” and at the same time that voice says "What will they think if I am truly me?"

Today I’d like to share with you a story from a recent...

Have you ever found yourself in a relentless pursuit, chasing the ghost of "enoughness" with every step you take? Like no matter how much you hustle and strive, that bucket of worthiness never seems to fill up?  It's like running on a treadmill, right? No matter how fast you go, you never quite reach your destination.

In this episode, we're peeling back the layers of the "not enough" syndrome that plagues so many of us. From societ...

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work with a coach for a year?

This episode is a little different. This is a replay of a conversation between my client Jessie Ellertson and me, where I was a guest on her podcast. 

Jessie is a life coach herself and she’s been my client for about a year. In this episode we talk about the top 12 lessons learned she’s had as takeaways during our work together. 

We talk about everything from ho...

Have you ever found yourself in a public place and a random stranger walks by and out of nowhere a super judgy thought pops in your brain. “Why would she wear that? Didn’t she look in the mirror this morning? At least I don’t weigh that much.” And then you think “What is wrong with me? Who thinks like that about other people?”

Or maybe you find yourself in a situation where you're just dying for someone close to you to make a diffe...

Have you ever had one of those days when your diet plan feels more like a distant memory than a reality? You know, the ones where that innocent-looking cookie led to a full-blown snack attack, and suddenly, you're knee-deep in a bag of potato chips?

I so get it. We've all been there, and let's face it, life happens. Those moments of "diet destruction" might just be your secret sauce to success!

Why does going off your plan have to ...

Have you ever found yourself on that rollercoaster of diets, calorie counting, feeling like you're trapped in a numbers game, fixated on what that scale says? You’ve been at it for a few weeks and maybe the scale has moved a little, but really not nearly like you expected. And you’re starting to get frustrated. And maybe you have a weekend or a night out where you didn’t stay totally on plan and all the work you put in to lose 1.7 ...

Have you ever had a specific food that just feels like it has a little more power over you than you do over it?

Like there are some foods that you can just take it or leave but there are others that you’re like “you’ll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.”

And yet on the inside, you’re maybe a teensy bit scared that this food is more in control of you than you are of it? 

Today we’re going to talk about what to do when you g...

Have you ever felt like, “I know I should work out, but I don’t have time.” or “I want to take time to meal plan but I get so busy and I run out of energy. Between the kids, my job, not to mention being a wife, I find it hard to carve out time for myself.” 

 

Listen, it is hard to find time these days. Life is BUSY. It’s even harder to make ourselves a priority in our own lives. I mean that feels kinda selfish. And there are so man...

Have you ever felt like there was more inside you that you have to give? Like maybe you’re not maxing out your potential? Or even scratching the surface? So often we wait until we lose the weight in order to go for that thing or to put ourselves out there in a scary way. 

Today, we’re gonna get deep. We’re going to talk about purpose, meaning and the shining your glorious light the way you were made to.

Ready to shine? Aw yeah. Let...

Have you ever felt like losing weight is like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded? The struggle is real, right? It's not just the simple formula that diets try to tell us it is. It's an emotional rollercoaster filled with frustration, self-doubt, and - let’s be honest -  the occasional forbidden love affair with a pint of ice cream. 

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? Instead of a tortuous grind, what if it could be ...

Have you ever set a goal to lose weight around the new year and thought “alright, this year I will lose 25 lbs. I’m gonna make it happen.”

Then life happens instead. 

And the next year you’re thinking “Ok THIS is the year. I’m gonna commit. I’m gonna get a bowflex. I’m gonna workout 6 days a week.” And by Jan 17th you’re hanging laundry on that bowflex. 

And you think “Ugh, this happens every time! What the hell is wrong with me?”

Have you ever had the thought, “I have so much weight to lose. It'll take forever”?

Or maybe this one resonates a little more: “I do well for [fill in the blank amount of time] and then I fall back into my old habits. After a while I just say ‘screw it.’”

Or here’s a doozy:  “I should never have gained this weight. I feel broken.”

Welcome to a brand new year!! The start of the year is often about endings and new beginnings. There’s so much promist and potential in the beginning of the year. There can also be a lot of stress and pressure, but that’s for another podcast.

Every year, around late December-early January, I do an exercise called the year in review / the year ahead. Today I’m going to focus more on the year in review and next week we’ll talk about the year ahead. 

I like the year in review part of the exercise because it’s a great way to reflect back on the year that was. It helps me bring to mind the positive memories and savor them. Sometimes it helps me process through some difficult...

So many diet thoughts are stirring, especially the one that says “Ya know what? It doesn’t even matter.”

It’s that time of year my friend.

That time warp on the calendar between Thanksgiving and Christmas where it seems like we have more to do and less time to do it in.

And there’s just so much going on, who could possibly think about maintaining healthy habits during this time of year? Between holiday parties, end of the year obligations at work, decorating, shopping, cooking, coordinating travel, mailing the holiday cards (haha, a...
