My Story

Here's-What-You-Need-to-Know

 

I spent the first 30 years of my life struggling with my weight, not accepting myself for who I am and generally feeling terrible about how I looked. It didn’t help that I had red hair, freckles and glasses! I turned to food as comfort, as a friend to keep me company if I was lonely, sad, or even bored. As I gained more and more weight, I began disliking my body even more and the terrible cycle continued. After going back to school to become a Holistic Nutritionist, to learn more about food and how it can help the body to heal, I was able to make the scientific links to understand what fuelled my body best. But it really didn’t put the last piece of the puzzle together for me, which was healing what had become a food addiction. After many years of struggling, I have finally realized that I have significant emotional triggers that ignite various food cravings, and the way that I am healing (we are always a work in progress!) is to pour massive amounts of self-LOVE onto my whole SELF. This is something that I had never done before, or even considered. Now, every action I take throughout the day is an act of self love. I love myself by choosing healthy, ripe, delicious, real food that loves me back by providing abundant hydration, nutrients, minerals and vitamins. I love myself by joyfully moving my body and honouring its needs. (I don’t work out with the mentality of “no pain, no gain” as a form of punishing myself for not having the “perfect body”). I love myself by meditating, doing yoga, drinking lots of fresh water, dancing, speaking to myself with a kind voice, and surrounding myself with people who accept me and love me for who I am. My story used to be that I hated my body (and therefore my self) and punished myself for not being perfect. NOW… MY STORY is that I am a red-haired goddess that loves myself abundantly and acts out of self love in every action I do! And I want that for you too. My Story is that my life is in service to YOU – the beautiful women that want to look and feel Fabulous, while enjoying a Luscious, healthy lifestyle. Sure, I guide you into making healthy lifestyle choices that transform your entire world, but what I’m really doing is showing you how to LOVE yourself and create magic in your life. Thank you so much for being here with me. I am truly honoured to have you as part of our community. I can’t wait to meet you!!
