Resolutions Without Restriction


Happy New Year!

You know…. that time of year when many of us take a moment to reflect on the past year, decide what we want to do differently in the upcoming one, and commit to making some positive changes by setting New Year’s Resolutions.

In this solo episode I’m sharing the top 5 mistakes that I’ve seen, as a personal trainer and health coach, when it comes to taking that Big Resolution Energy and turning it into sustainable lifestyle changes – and what to do instead!

Exploring Your Relationship with Alcohol


The holidays are once again upon us… a time to eat, drink, and be merry!

But if one of those activities is taking up more time, energy, and headspace than you’d like or causing friction in your relationships (I’m looking at you, Drink!) then this episode is for you.

I chat with Teri Patterson, also known as The Sober Nutritionist, who helps women explore and understand their relationship with alcohol with curiosity and without judgement.  Teri shares her own experience of looking at how alcohol fit into her life… until it didn’t… the resistance she had to giving it up, and the amazing things she has discovered being sober for the last 7 years.

Incorporating Rest into Your Sustainable Self-care Practice


In this episode I’m talking with Rest Coach, Anastasiya Rutus, who explains the value of resting for the sake of rest, and unlearning the belief that rest needs to be earned or justified as a way to increase productivity.

Meet Anastasiya

I’m a Ukrainian living in the US with my family who escaped the onset of war this February. I wear many hats including being myself, a friend, mom and a world wanderer.
I’m a rest coach, who turned her life experiences and passions into a mission of helping mothers of young children integrate a sustainable self-care routine so they can enjoy guilt-free rest, travel more and set an example for their kids that you can live life successfully with yourself as a priority.
I believe that rest is our right, not something we need to earn or feel bad about.

Migraine Freedom with Debbie Waidl


In this episode I talk to Debbie Waidl, a Migraine Specialist certified through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Institute for Functional Health Coaching.

As a migraine specialist, she helps busy moms uncover what is holding them back from migraine freedom so they can live their life pain- and symptom-free, spend the time they want with family and friends, and stop missing out on the things they enjoy.

In this episode she explains her 3 Pillar approach to Migraine Freedom, and how she teaches her clients to make subtle shifts in their busy lives to improve their quality of life without relying on countless medications and following complicated migraine elimination diets.

Her passion to help moms live migraine-free stems from her own experience with daily migraines and her desire to ensure no one has to live through years of endless migraines as she did.
