A New Approach on How To “Listen To Your Body”

How many times have we heard… “Listen To Your Body.” In Yoga, in recovery, even when working out… “Listen to your body. If it doesn’t feel right to you today, don’t do it. If you’re tired, go easy.” All really great things to hear and absolutely words to believe in.   But. How many of us have actually stopped and really made sense of what those words…

Being In Process: Shifting Affirmations to Be In Your Truth (Week In Review)

In The Law Of Attraction, Michael Losier’s says that once you have identified your desire, the next step is to give your desire attention.   He says, “The Law of Attraction brings you more of whatever you give your attention, energy and focus to.” He also says that each of us has a vibrational bubble surrounding us, and that captured in this bubble are all the vibrations we are continually sending out. Because The Law Of…

The Law of Attraction: Finding My Desire For Hypothalamic Amennorhea Recovery

The other week I finished reading, “The Law of Attraction,” by Michael Losier. The Law of Attraction is not an entirely un-heard of concept these days, and this is definitely not the only book or person writing about its theories. It was however, the first time I had read into the details about this way of aiming for success and happiness in ones life.  In short, the Law of Attraction believes that we are responsible for…

Depression and HA Recovery: Self Care

My Year in Review was positive It was full of a sense of new peace and happiness that I felt, specifically in the ending months of the year. I was scared to write that post and was very hesitant to even hint at the thought that…I’m happy…because inside, I felt like I knew there would soon be a down swing. I don’t believe this is a pessimistic voice talking, but rather a realistic…

The Realization That This Is How It Is: Getting Jacked up #2

For those of you who stopped by yesterday, thank you. Yesterday’s post paints an image of how I am feeling, in a general sense, now in my life. Something I am very thankful for. I write posts like those to keep reminding myself what true health, happiness and nourishment means to me, especially maybe when those thoughts start to dwindle. Like… last week. Last week, guys, was brutal.   I got jacked up. Again.  &nbsp…

Packing Up: More Than Just Boxes (Thinking Out Loud)

  I’m not really sure how to write this post. But I know it’s one I want to write.    I began my process of packing – for my recent move – well over two months ago. I knew I wanted to start early because I wanted to do a thorough round of organizing and purging before the boxes actually came out.  I wanted to take a really serious look at what…

Pushing Past Insecurities: Career, Relationships, Life

My Dad just texted me. He congratulated me on my day of auditions yesterday. Then he told me a quote he recently came across…   “To succeed in life you need three things: A wishbone A backbone  And a funny bone.” Reba McEntire   Yesterday I had a day off  work, but as I explained here, a day off from “work,” isn’t actually a day off. It means a day for…

My Comments on Intuitive Eating with IBS: It’s Okay To Use Your Brain

On Tuesday I shared a guest post about Intuitive Eating with IBS.  What a friggen HARD thing to figure out.  And that’s just the two contenders. When you throw in a history of an eating disorder and therefore a still learning/shifting/growing mindset about food intake,  you’ve got one seriously messy pool to wade through.    I thought Joyce’s’ post was spot on. A few things she…

Intuitive Eating with IBS (Guest Post with Joyce from The Hungry Caterpillar)

Today I have a very special guest post for you! My dear friend Joyce from thehungrycaterpillar blog is not only a FABulous writer – clear, relatable, open, honest – but has also paved her way as a “go to” in the world of IBS and low-FODMAP eating. She has shared her journey through the elimination phase of the low-FODMAP diet in order to heal her struggles with IBS, and now continues to help others going…

Going On The Low-FODMAP Diet? (Thinking Out Loud)

I mentioned in a recent post that I’ve been experiencing some very discouraging stomach discomfort as of late. Well, really, I’ve been experiencing strange stomach discomfort for I’d say three years now, but because my discomfort has never been what I considered “IBS” – I struggle with more “tightness” rather than bowel distress – I never thought my problems had anything to do with digestion. Or food at…
