Live in the body you deserve

Do This Instead of A New Year's Resolution

New Year S Eve Sparkler Sparks 38196

Christmas & Hanukkah are over and by now you are either recovering from an eggnog/cookie overdose, or you are feeling victorious for conquering the holidays thus far. If you find yourself reading this filled with the hangover regretsies, I have the perfect solution for you.


As 2017 comes to a close, you can either press the “Tap Out” button, be reckless for the rest of the year and join all the poor souls on January 1st exclaiming “New Year, New Me!” (this is very basic b*tch and you are way too cool for that), or you can take a deep breath, forgive yourself, do some good ol' fashioned reflection and press the Reset Button.

Pressing the Reset Button allows you to accept yourself as a work in progress. It also frees you from the diet roller coaster of being “on” and “off” according to the dates on the calendar.

Self Reflection is the cornerstone of making permanent change and evolving your relationship with food.

Using your holiday experience an example, what was it that triggered you? What story did you tell yourself that drove the behavior you are reflecting on? For example, did you think to yourself “It’s the holidays, I must eat all the cookies that I don’t have access to all year!” and now you are worried about having to wear SPANX under your NYE outfit?

We need to understand why our behaviors manifested in that way, get to the root (your disempowering story) and reframe that story to one that pushes you to a more beneficial behavior. Only then does pressing the Reset Button carry it's full power.

New Story: “There is no reason why I can’t have cookies all year round in moderation. In fact, it’s a win/win to space this shug-shug out, not gain weight, and enjoy everything. There’s no restriction here, just slowing down, pacing myself, and breaking the cultural belief that now is the only time I can bake.”

If you’ve been killin it with conscious eating this holiday season, then mazel tov! Rinse and repeat.

Make the commitment that no matter what, you won't ever press the Tap Out Button on yourself or your life. Stay tuned in, be present and always strive for more. Let your plate be a reflection of your inner work to grow and become a more conscious eater.


Old ways won't open new doors. Your journey to health is straight ahead, not behind you.
Your body is a physical reflection of how much you respect, love, and care for yourself. 💗

At the same time, I believe that the plate right in front of you is a reflection of your inner emotional state. ⠀
Looking down and seeing a sh***y pile of nachos? A handful of crackers as you stand in your pantry? You aren't feeling so hot... emotionally speaking. ⠀
Feeling better and eating better starts with small steps. It can be as simple as starting with some #beautiful plates, sitting down and taking the time to consciously eat what's in front of you. Even if it is that last slice of leftover #pizza!
