Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 8.49.25 PMIf your body were your Valentine, would she feel loved and nurtured, respected and adored?

 

I encourage you to do something today that’s loving to your body. Treat your body like your beloved Valentine. It can be simple, love is simple, right? Just takes a few moments today to let your body know you’re on her side.

It can be a walk, a yummy and nourishing meal, a nap, a massage, a compliment…

Here’s a quick video I made in front of our blooming Magnolia tree. The photo above is one of her many blossoms about to light up our yard.

What Are Your Halloween Candy Memories?

candy cornWhat are your Halloween candy memories? I was thinking today about my favorite Halloween candy and it was always the wrapped chocolates; Mounds, Almond Joy, Butterfingers, Snickers, Kit Kats and one of my favorites Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. My sister was much more inclined to the hard candy, candy corn and taffies, but I was a chocolate lover.

We graduated from paper bags to hold our candy to pillow cases, and we were determined to canvas the neighborhood and fill them up. Then, when we got home, we would analyze and compare our stash.

But ya know, my favorite memory of the neighborhood was my teacher’s house, Rosie. She invited the whole neighborhood over, and would have kids perform for their candy. The adults were all drinking booze I’m sure and enjoying themselves. It was the most fun place to be. We would go there, knowing it would cut into our candy collecting time, but it was just so much fun. Plus, Rosie was so encouraging of our performances and was a natural teacher, bringing out the best in us.

What I’ve seen over the years in working with people is that it’s not about the sweets, it’s about the people we’re with and oftentimes, our cravings come from the sweet memories we share with others.

Back to you, what were you favorite candy memories from Halloween?

I’d love to know, please share them in the comments below.

Bacon & Chocolate For Breakfast?

AshlandI’m writing from Ashland Oregon. I’m here with my Mom (she’s 80!) and I wanted to share what we’ve been eating for breakfast.

Why?

Because it may help you choose breakfast foods you enjoy AND love your body.

I often find people eat foods they THINK are healthy or avoid foods they THINK are unhealthy. This can take you off track and missing out on pleasure AND good nutrition!

Isn’t it time to get rid of the SHOULD’s?

The last 2 mornings, I’ve had bacon and chocolate for breakfast.

Willpower & Permission to Pause

hammockLast night after working with clients, I was writing up a blog post about willpower. It was almost done but I didn’t finish. I could have pushed, I can push through fatigue, but I listened to my body.

A few weeks ago, I asked folks on my email list what their biggest struggles were. The top struggles were around willpower and not having enough time. Thank you to everyone who answered that email, I SO appreciate your feedback. I want to help you, and I AM creating something so stay tuned.

I have a habit of working too much.  You see, there are things I need / want to do for others, and there’s the student loans and there’s the passion for what I do and helping those I serve. So, it’s easy to see that I get pulled into working too much. But, today, I’m going to rest, I’ll work a little, but I’m taking some time to pause, and I invite you to do the same.

Right now, I’m running my first ever 21 Day Love Your Body Challenge. I’m over the moon excited for the participants. See, I started my healing journey 27 years ago and I’m sharing what worked for me and many others to heal.

My Secret Weapon for Weight Loss

Kara_Berkeley

I used to hate my body and started obsessing about it at sixteen, when I started getting curves. I was self conscious before that, but it did not center around my weight. I got serious (stern voice) about managing my weight and controlling my body and was a bit neurotic. I thought I needed the perfect body to get what I wanted in life, so I started dieting and became … an aerobics instructor. Seriously, I did that, it was the 80’s, please forgive me.
