Is your Energy blocking your Success?

Categories: Uncategorized.
Do you ever look at your bank account and wonder what you’re doing wrong in your business? You’ve tried everything the books say, done all the work your coach said, paid for advertising, attended workshops and conferences and still no clients, or not enough clients to pay the bills. You know that you’re good at what you do, you know how to get clients results, you just know one day you will be successful. But what about today? What’s going on today that you’re just not getting enough clients? Or maybe you own a brick and mortar business and your

I felt it coming….

Categories: Anxiety, Emotion, Healing, Self Care, and Stress.
I felt it coming… I felt it coming…the overwhelming fatigue, wanting to hide away, craving coffee and junk food. I knew it was coming. Then it hit. Or I hit it. The wall of depression and anxiety. Sometimes its a big huge wall, and sometimes its a tiny wall I can jump over. This time it was a pretty big wall. I’m not surprised because I’ve been doing a lot of healing work on myself over the past few months.  I’ve gotten in touch with my inner child, I’ve done guided visualizations exploring my past lives, I’ve meditated, saw a Shaman,

Mindless Eating vs Mindful Eating

Categories: Uncategorized.
Mindless eating vs Mindful eating I know the difference might seem obvious but it’s really easy to eat mindlessly without even realizing it. How many times have you grabbed the bag of chips and munched while you worked on your laptop, or eaten a bag of m&m’s while talking on the phone, or eating an entire block of cheese while chatting over wine with a friend? This is all mindless eating and while there is nothing wrong with any type of eating, mindless eating is an easy way to overeat and not even enjoy the food. And, I know when

Anxiety and Cravings

Format: Aside.
I was driving today and thinking about the link between anxiety and cravings and wondered, what comes first: the craving or the anxiety? Does the anxiety trigger the cravings or do the cravings trigger the anxiety? I was thinking this out loud and my 16 year old son said “Obviously the anxiety comes first or otherwise why would people stress eat?”, he’s so smart I used to get a LOT of anxiety, I still do, I’m not gonna lie. And I used to deal with my anxiety by eating. Usually it would be sweets, or a drive thru Starbucks for

Drama Mama Days

Categories: Embrace You, Self Care, and Uncategorized.
Sometimes I feel like a total Drama Mama. You know those days when nothing seems to go right and anything that can go wrong, at the wrong time, does. Yep. That was me today. Last night I threw my back out for the very first time. I wish I had some amazing story about how I did it, like salsa dancing or rock climbing but I was bending down trying to touch my toes. Clearly I need to learn how to do that without hurting myself! So today I was in a lot of pain. And of course I kept

The thing about distracting yourself from food…

Categories: Uncategorized.
I get asked a lot “How can I distract myself from food?” Well, you kind of can’t. Because that’s like trying to distract yourself from going the bathroom. Think about it. What happens when you really have to pee and you try to hold it? You start dancing around, jumping up and down, but eventually you have to pee or your gonna pee your pants right there in Target. There’s no avoiding it. It’s like that with food. Say you decide to give up bread because it’s “bad” for you. Now all you can think about it bread. All you

Can you loosen your grip on food?

Categories: Uncategorized.
  What would happen if you loosened your grip on food? If you stopped labeling food as good or bad? If you ate what you wanted, when you wanted it? What would that feel like? I know this is a crazy question. Trust me. Being a professional dieter there was no such thing as loosening my grip. I hung on to my diets like they were life rafts. If I let go, even just a little, I would drown. I would sink to the bottom of the ocean never to be seen again. I felt like if I ate what

Stale Cake

Categories: Embrace You, Food Freedom, and Self Care.
  Have you ever wanted to eat stale cake? I mean, like really wanted to eat it? This happened to me yesterday. Logically I know the cake is stale and I should have already thrown it out but there it was, in the fridge, calling my name like a song…Michelle…here I am….come to meeeee.  It was after I ate dinner. I hadn’t been feeling well all day. I found myself actually secretly wishing my husband would either a) go to bed early or b) go down and water the garden so I could eat the stale cake in silence. What I really

If I stop dieting I’ll get as big as a house!

Categories: Uncategorized.
I used to think this was a true fact. Like, truer than my hair is red or the sky is blue. If I let go of dieting, if I stop counting points, calories, pounds, fats, carbs, sugars, every single lick, taste and bite…I will get as big as a house. My waist will expand to epic proportions and I won’t be able to fit in my car. If I loosen my grip on food, even just a little bit, I’ll spin out of control. I was absolutely sure I would eat 10 bags of potato chips, 5 boxes of gluten

Can you give me a hand?

Categories: Uncategorized.
Why in the world is it so hard to ask for help? I mean come on, we honestly can’t do it all. So why do keep running in circles, trying to do it all, failing to do it all and then beating ourselves up? Is this just the way it is? I’ve gone many years not asking for help. And then complaining when I have soooo much to do. But who’s fault is that? Obviously I know it’s mine but I still have trouble asking for help. But why? Our society (begins ranting about injustice) we are told that as
