Welcome!

Oh heyyyyy — I’m so glad that you have stopped by this little corner of the internet. I hope that it feels welcoming nd positive to you.

What will this space be?

  • Genuine & authentic
  • Vulnerable
  • Challenging
  • Smart
  • Body-positive, celebrating Health at Every Size
  • Feminist
  • Focused on positive wellness and movement
  • When I need it, probably a space to rant / get out some political thoguhts

 

What kind of content can you expect to see?

  • Challenges to be more intuitive in your eating and movement
  • Workouts
  • Spotlights of Philadelphia, the city I live, eat, run in, and love
  • Maybe some recipes
  • My thoughts as they come

What do I promise to my readers?

  • That I will share my journey with authenticity and vulnerability
  • That I will reject a diet mentality, and instead push readers to respect cues from their bodies, honor the body’s natural size, and move towards a more positive relationship with it
  • That I will celebrate both food and movement, but will never see one as an antidote to the other  
  • That I will write thoughtfully and openly, so that the content can be accessible and challenging both to people who are familiar with Health at Every Size (HAES) and nutrition / wellness ideals, and those who haven’t heard of it
  • That you can come here to find a tough workout, a reality check, or some goofy shit

Alright, well… who the hell are you to be writing this?

Great q. I wonder that myself a lot 😉 but I’ve decided in 2017 I need to jump fearlessly into the things I want to pursue.

  • A coffee and ice cream addict
  • Imperfect
  • A believer in too-loud laughter
  • A regular drinker of Cabernet Sauvignon
  • A survivor of anorexia and exercise addiction
  • An unapologetic feminist  
  • A believer in intuitive eating and intuitive exercise (believe me, MUCH more to come about this!)
  • A big-ass nerd
  • Frustrated with how our society tends to view health in a single mindset, disregarding the social determinants of many aspects of health
  • A marathoner, lover of high-intensity strength training, and member of the November Project Philly tribe
  • A beginner baker and cook
  • Someone who is always seeking, exploring, and learning
