3 Ways to Feel Good in Your Body this Summer

Posted May 25, 2017 in body image, Body Love Solution, self confidence and 3 more

Make this the summer you love your body more! Feel better in your body this summer with these three simple tips. 


I've shared my body image struggles with you before. But I know that I'm not the only woman who has felt insecure about her body, so I want to revisit this topic.

Summer can be an especially difficult time if you're already feeling not so great about your body. Shorts, tank tops, swimsuits....the clothing situation is pretty minimal.

For years, I covered up my body during the summer or just avoided outings that required a swimsuit. There were many summers that I never even dipped my toes into a body of water. 

Now, summer is my favorite time of year. I love going swimming, hiking, kayaking, riding my bike and just hanging out outside. 

My body didn't suddenly become perfect. I have cellulite, round thighs, wide hips and belly rolls. So what changed?

Embrace Your Body Challenge

Posted June 5, 2017 in Embrace Your Body Challenge, love your body, self-care and 3 more


This time of year can bring up a lot of negative feelings about our bodies. 

Now that the weather is warmer and you're baring more skin, you may find yourself noticing your perceived flaws and getting down on yourself. Or maybe you're comparing yourself to others and feeling like your body isn't good enough.

I've been there. Feeling like my body wasn't skinny/toned/beautiful enough held me back from living a full life.

I spent years going on restrictive diets and working out because I was desperate to change my body. But when I finally lost weight, I still hated my body.

I began to embrace my body by doing small things every day. By taking time for myself and becoming more connected to myself. Nothing drastic, no intense workouts and no food deprivation. 

Which is why I created a free program and private community to motivate you as you create a happy and healthy life, and body that you love.

How to Break Free from Dieting for Good and Love Your Body More

Posted July 4, 2017 in Summer Body Love Program, body positivity, self-care and 2 more

Loving your body more and living the life you truly want is within reach, and there's no diet, meal plan or fitness routine required!


Every spring, I used to write out my weight loss goals for summer. I'd figure out how many pounds I needed to lose each week to reach my goal.

The number I chose, always seemed to have a magical power attached to it. I imagined that once I reached that number on the scale, that I would be happy and confident, and that I would finally be able to begin living my life. 

I would spend the entire spring starting my diet over every Monday, repeating a cycle of strict eating, binge eating, shame and guilt, more binge eating, back to the diet. 

Obviously, I never met my weight loss goal, and I began each summer feeling self-conscious about my body and like a total failure for not having the willpower to get skinny. I also continued to put my true desires on hold because I hadn't reached that magical number on the scale yet. 

But then something changed...I began taking care of myself and living more fully. I stopped waiting for my body to be perfect to live the life I wanted to live, and I began to love my body more.

It's officially fall! 

I love this time of year. The weather finally cools off, leaves begin to change colors, pumpkin displays start popping up all over, and it's time to break out the cozy blankets and sweaters. 

As mother nature is transitioning, we typically go through some changes this time of year as well. We go from easy going summer days to school schedules or fewer vacation days from work. This is usually a time of year when we begin to get busy again. 

So it's even more important to take the time to care for yourself. 

Self-care is simply doing anything that makes you feel the way you want to feel. Do you want to feel relaxed, at peace, full of joy, inspired or adventurous? Making time for self-care allows you to replenish your spirit. 

I change up my self-care routine depending on the season. Fall may be my favorite self-care season because of all the opportunities to get cozy and relax. Here are some ideas to inspire you to take care of yourself more this season...
