278: Health is a verb.
You can rock a swimsuit AND not like yourself.
You can have six packs abs AND suffer from dis-ease.
You can be an amazing athlete AND struggle with disordered eating.
Popular media culture loves to push health as a look, but the truth is health is a way of being.
In this week’s episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I talk about what it means to embody health and the practices that will help you do just that.Listen Now!
268: Facing the Truth of Your Life
Who you are currently being in the world is a culmination of the things you have practiced so many times you have quite literally become those things.
Clients will often say, “that’s just the way I am” as if they are bound to that way of being forever.
If your practices to this point in your life shaped your current state of being, new practices can develop you into a new state.
To develop new practices, however, you are going to have to face the truth of your current practices (minus the blame, shame, and judgment).
In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I am sharing a few tips and tricks on how to do just that.Listen Now!

131: Building a Practice vs. Chasing Results
Everywhere you turn there seems to be a new product, formula, program, pill or system being sold to you promising RESULTS. Sadly, people buy into these promises in droves to improve their health, but these measures can often further damage their health by causing them to develop a phobia of food, disordered eating patterns, hormonal challenges…and so much more.
Chasing results is not the same as improving health.
In fact, I have worked with many clients over the years who were so focused on creating certain results with their physiology, that they hugely sacrificed their physiological and psychological health to do so.
There is a big difference between chasing results and building a practice of better self-care (which results are typically the bi-product of…by the way).
You can spend your time, money and energy chasing what I call the “Hail Mary Approaches” to results (which you will struggle to sustain) OR you can invest in learning how to build a practice of better self-care so you can remove yourself once and for all from diet dogma and extreme measures.
