Chocolate for your love story?

Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s day is upon us (thanks for the generous reminder, CVS). To be honest, I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. In other words I spent most of my teenage years pouring out my heart via Hallmark cards, engraved gifts, and mix CDs (I was that girl). Now, here I am, a decade or so later, with many years of love (and heartache) in the rearview. And the funny thing is, I have more questions about love now than I did back when the boys of NSync were the objects of my affection… hmmm… So here’s

Are you a donut lover?

Well if you are, this one’s for you. Personally, I never had a thing for donuts… Or had I just completely blocked em’ out of my mind? Deep-fried dough with warm chocolate glaze… better for a Health Coach to avoid the thought of it, right? 😉 Nah. You and I both know that whole avoidance thing never works anyway. So, when donuts were recently brought back into my life during a spontaneous trip to the West Coast…  and when they were even more delicious than I’d remembered, well, I thought, it’s time to bring em’ back for good. So, here’s a recipe I snagged

when you’re too stressed for yoga

How you holdin’ up? No matter which side you fall on, this past week has been an intense one. Shock, paralysis, nervousness, and fear are just a few of the feelings surfacing in me and in my communities. And amidst the whirlwind of emotion, we’re wanting to do something… but don’t know what or when or how. >> Thing is, it’s my experience that when I’m jittery, overwhelmed, and unsettled, there’s not a whole lot I can accomplish. Or at least not much I can accomplish well << So, instead, I stop. For a little while. And turn to yoga or meditation. But sometimes I’ve even too

Turmeric Latte (aka Golden Milk)

Phew. These past fews months have been pretty intense. Lots goin’ on and what feels like very little time to fit it all in. Sound familiar? The big change on my end has been starting my clinical internship, providing social/emotional support to local youth. I feel like an outsider lots of the time, stepping into this tight knit neighborhood community, but good news is… I’m slowly building relationships and in the meantime the kids are cracking me up (i.e. last week a six year old girl asked me why my teeth are so yellow). So now, I’m a health coach with bad teeth, I

Summer days

We’ve got some catching up to do. I’ve been more or less MIA this summer, but have NOT forgotten about you. Some of my highlights (then I want to hear from you!) : I worked a TON to lessen the sting of grad school bills (on top of coaching, I picked up a dog walking gig and love it) With that, did LOTS of walking (like 10 miles/day) Went on a 3-day breath work retreat (and learned an incredible practice I’ve added to my morning routine) And then a 7-day meditation retreat (and came face to face with some real uncomfortable thoughts I’m attached to) Got

wake up, eat raw: a 7-day challenge

Recently I read something pretty cool. “When growth and evolution stop, anxiety builds up. Just as physical pain becomes a signal that something needs to be done, so anxiety can serve as motivation to go on with the steps involved in change and development.” And this brings me to my 7-day raw food challenge I’ll be starting next week. What does a raw food challenge have to do with anxiety and change? Well, in case you’re curious: I don’t eat raw food to lose weight. And I don’t really even do it for the health benefits anymore (even though there are

It is here, it is here, it is here

Every day I write to-do lists. I’ve written thousands in my thirty years.  And beyond those physical to-do lists, I’ve also got mental and emotional “to do” lists I edit all day long. These lists are a combo of simple errands, big life goals, and anything in between. On any given day, a compilation of tasks from my to-do lists might look something like this: – read for school – write a blog – get an internship – email my client – grocery shop – pay bills – make chocolate – meditate – get to yoga – get inspired – travel – find love All of these
