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 the year 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 a 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 its 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.


What an amazing day! Thank you to everyone who came to my talk. I know you had a ton of choices and I’m glad you picked me. 
I loved meeting each of you to sign your books and I sent you each a silent prayer that you feed your soul and live life fulfilled 💋 #sxsw2019
When how I look determines whether or not I feel worthy of love, acceptance, or praise, I feel like crap. My mind tells me that only a flat stomach, small thighs and toned arms are the standard of my beauty, of my “enough”ness.

When how I feel is determined by all of the loving things I tell myself about my imperfect body, I feel whole, grounded and at peace. It motivates me to do more good things for my body, like exercise, eating well, drinking more water. I do these things out of love, not fear, because my worthiness is no longer a factor.
