Now that’s out there, let me explain.
I’m part of a book club, full of loving friends who know that I’m
outspoken passionate about my opinions, talk dirtier than a sailor (usually with my mouth full), and constantly interrupt other people.
This group of women allows me the space to be myself, even when I go home after meetings wondering if I should have thought twice about telling them the hilarious comment I made on the operating room table before my c-section about overgrown hair down there.
Yes, I’m that person at the table beside you at a fancy restaurant talking too loudly about sexual favours, bowel movements (baby or adult), or some other equally taboo subject, usually with hand gestures to match. Complete TMI verbal diarrhea.
Anyhoo, our last book was “Daring Greatly” by Brené Brown, and I feel like it was written just for my “perfection driven/constantly comparing/giving away the best of me until there is nothing left” self. If this sounds like you, do yourself a favour and buy a copy now. Seriously, now.
In our culture when you can read on Facebook, blogs, online magazines, and TMZ about what everyone and their dog ate for lunch, it makes me feel like I’m about 5 steps behind the pinnacle of healthy eating that I think every other holistic nutritionist is at.
I see them writing on their blog about fermenting their own kombucha, soaking and sprouting beans, making their own nut milks, or bottling water straight from a free-flowing spring in a forest.
*SWEAR WORD ALERT*
Have you ever said to yourself:
- When I’m thinner, I’ll play with my kids more
- When I’m thinner, I’ll be less anxious
- When I’m thinner, I’ll be healthier
- When I’m thinner, I’ll be able to sleep at night
You know what? You’re dead wrong. You won’t necessarily achieve any of those things.
I bet you’re a little bit mad at me for raining on your weight loss parade, and I don’t blame you one bit.
You’ve been tricked by Weight Watchers, Herbal Magic, Herbal One, Jenny Craig, and almost every other weight loss program out there that if you could only lose weight, your life would all of a sudden be happy and perfect. It won’t be.
I’m baaaa-aaaack! Lots of changes to fill you in on (that’s my next blog post!), but here’s a quick post that I wrote for The Ultimate Me Day Women’s Conference that I’m speaking at on April 20th. I thought that I would share on here … enjoy!

About a week before we were going to take our newborn son, Aleks, home from the hospital, I was feeling run down and completely exhausted (for the back story about how we spent 4 1/2 months in the hospital after he was born, please click here). I had been living at Ronald McDonald House in London for 3 months, and I missed home, I missed my husband, I missed my family, and I missed my bed. I was spending upwards of 8 hours a day in Aleks’ room, only allowing myself to leave after I was sure he was napping.
I couldn’t NOT post this talk on how to live to be 100+ years old, because who doesn’t want to die peacefully in their sleep at the age of 102, especially after sex! P.S. You have to watch the video to get that joke …
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?
Are you overweight?
Do you want to solve these problems by eating delicious food?
If you answered yes, then you totally agree with mine and Jamie Oliver’s philosophy that you can totally change your health and your life JUST by eating real food!
