July Favorites: Gaining Body Fat (& happiness), Lessons from an Eating Disorder, & Free Anti-Dieting Challenge

July Favorites: Free Challenge, Gaining Body Fat (and happiness), & Lessons from an Eating Disorder

The summer is flying by, and thankfully, it's been full of adventures, fun, laughter, and pure joy. Luckily for you, I've also been working on a FREE Challenge starting in mid-August - the 21-Day Break Up with Dieting Challenge. You won't have to follow any food rules or detox from sugar during this challenge. In fact, we'll be breaking the rules and finding a new way of living where you can actually enjoy your life & love your body. Sign up here to get in on the action! (It will be 2 weekly emails for 3 weeks + an amazing Facebook group for soul-nourishing support & connection.) Why am I offering this for free? Because...

  • You deserve to live with joy.
  • You are so worthy of love...no matter what the scale or your jean size says.
  • You are capable of nourishing yourself wholly.
  • You are your own health guru.
  • Your body is giving you cues all the time. You can learn to listen to them to honor your hunger and fullness.
  • Normal eating is ONE part of your life. Food is pleasurable, but so are infinite other aspects of life - relationships, your job, passion projects, nature, movement, sunsets...
  • You can trust your body.
  • Diets are boring, restrictive, drive you crazy....and you deserve a life of joy, love, breaking the rules, manifesting and living your dreams, laughter, and true nourishment.
