Fighting

For the past few weeks it’s felt like I’m fighting my body. Nothing feels easy right now. Working out is causing knee pain. I fell which caused back and neck pain. Eating feels harder than it ever has. I’m gaining weight and not making smart choices. It’s hella frustrating! I don’t feel like I’m in…

Birth Control

I’ve been on the pill for 14 years. That’s an insane amount of time. Especially when you consider the side effects of the pill include depression, weight gain, nausea, breast tenderness, mood changes, decrease libido, acne, increase cancer risk, blood clots. Wow right? Things I wish I had known before starting. My doctor was not…

When we must rest.

Arhh winter in Victoria. Lots of rain and wind and maybe a touch of snow. Not this year. The past week we’ve had days of snow. I loved it. I loved it right up until I found myself flat on my back in a crosswalk. My feet slipped on ice and before I even realized…

What drives change?

What drives change? Why do some of us choose to reach higher whilst some of us choose to stay where we are? My opinion? We all want to reach higher, to continue to learn and grow into the best version ourselves, but we are scared. Some of us get to that point where the fear…

My post carb action plan

As many of you saw we ate a ton of carbs yesterday! Started our day with cinnamon buns at 830am (I ate almost two of them), lobster cakes, Cornish pastie, and dill pickle chips. Wowza. That’s a whole lot of carbs. I thought I’d share what I do to help my body after a day…

Zen af

I had someone ask me how do you get to the point of feeling zen all the time. How do you not let all those little things bother you. I totally get it! You wanna glide through your day feeling cool, calm, and collected. Stupid shit doesn’t bother you and you’re feeling amazing. My response?…

Keto & Paleo

I had some mention that they thought I ate keto not paleo. I do talk about keto more than paleo so I thought I’d give a quick breakdown of them! Paleo talks to your quality of food. It’s part of the ancestral health movement that aims to eat in a way that mirrors the way…

Boundaries

Let’s talk boundaries. They are so important but can be tough for a lot of us to implement. We’re often taught to put others first, put ourselves on the back burner, and always give and say yes. We are not taught how to say no. Not only do we have a choice around what we…

Alcohol

Have you ever looked at how much you drink and why? I typically don’t drink often. I can go months without drinking. I find alcohol raises my blood pressure and when I lay down to sleep I can hear my heartbeat in my ears – it’s super distracting whilst trying to sleep 😂 It causes…

‘Tis the season

To give too much. To spend too much. To eat too much. To drink too much. To stress too much. It’s a season of give give give. I love Christmas. I do not love the excess and the stress. This year is particularly interesting for me. I’ve spent so much time this past year working…
