Chocolate Medjool Mini Popsicles

The week I was due our A/C went out! There is nothing like being nine months preggers in August in Atlanta. Thankfully there was air in our bedroom;) What types of foods do you crave in the summer months? The seasonal produce favors a variety of leafy greens, fruits and summer vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, and yellow squash. Raw foods can help to keep your body temperature cool. And then there’s ice cream. I’m all about treats in moderation and come from a family that LOVES ice cream. Since ice cream no longer sits well with my...

How Reset With the Solar Eclipse

How Reset With the Solar Eclipse

Are you excited about the solar eclipse on August 21?! My sister started talking about it months ago since she’s convinced I’ll go into labor that day. It’s the first total solar eclipse in 99 years and will stretch across a 70-mile band from Oregon to South Carolina. Even if you’re not in the 70-mile stretch, you’ll still be able to see a partial eclipse. The eclipse will last about 3 hours here in Atlanta with the sun being blocked by the moon around 2:36 pm making it dark mid-day. As you know from past posts,...

How many times per week are you drinking a green smoothie? Once, a few times, or NEVER. If you’ve never tried a green smoothie you might be thinking – gross.

(**Last chance to get the Happy Body Program! It’s coming off the market on August 26. Get more details on this self-guided program HERE.**) To rekindle, solidify or initiate your love...

The Power of Moderation in Action

The Power of Moderation in Action

Do you fall into the ‘all or nothing’ mentality when it comes to habit change? You swear you’re going to… …go to yoga class 3 times per week… …start reading more… …meal plan… …stop drinking two glass of wine per night… …wake up at 5:30 am… …de-clutter your closet. You set goals with the best intentions of following through, BUT when you slip up, you give up. And not only do you give up, you go down a shame cycle of not having enough willpower or discipline. Then the cycle repeats. Time for something...

How Self-Acceptance Can Get You a Body and Life You Love

How often do you compare yourself with the former you? Are you unhappy with where you are now and spend energy trying to figure out how you can *fix* yourself? I thought about this while practicing with my 2012 self in THIS 50-MINUTE YOGA SEQUENCE. (So fun!) During practice, I felt a deep admiration for Jackie circa 2012. Empathy for her wants needs, desires, fears, and insecurities. We had just moved to Atlanta, I had recently become a wife and was exploring taking my business online. I was on the cusp learning how to take care of myself not...
