I Changed My Mindset and Lost 25 Pounds

mindset weight loss Oct 29, 2020

Oh the difference a year can make!

Last year I started doing something new- I started to believe in myself, MY process, MY success, MY potential. I stopped giving craps about what someone else was doing, what someone thought of me and started to focus on me. I started to look at what I wanted my life to look like, how I would commit to my own process and how I wouldn’t give up on a better life with more energy, confidence and less pain.

Turns out, I just needed to work on my mindset, emotional healing and work on eating when I was hungry and stopping when I was satisfied. I started to be intentional with planning my food. That’s it. I cut out the diet drama, stopped looking to the world to validate my existence, stopped obsessing over balance and started on the inside. I started coaching myself 

Yes you can lose weight without cutting food groups, a perfectly calculated meal plan, workouts that leaves you sore for days or cutting yourself down. Yesterday I ate a...

Failure Is a Part of the Change Process

behavior change Oct 29, 2020

When you think of failure, what are your thoughts?  Do you think of failure as a good thing or a bad thing?  

I used to look at failure as proof that I wasn't getting where I was going.  It was evidence that I'd use against myself to quit, give up and chase something else.  But failure is NOT evidence to stop.  It's evidence you are trying and learning what will work.

So quick reminder: 

When you're making a change in your behaviors and habits; failure, backtracking, and mess-ups are a normal part of the journey to creating consistent behaviors.  Life is never in a state of perfection, so it's normal to have a "cha-cha" with behavior change when you are faced with a challenge, learning a new habit, environment change or any other change in routine.  

What's amazing about the human spirit is our ability to adapt and overcome circumstances- even when it's hard.  Start small and do what you can.  It's better...

How to Support Yourself or a Loved One Through a Pregnancy Loss

Uncategorized Oct 29, 2020

I share lots of pictures with my adorable kids, but not everyone knows that we went through 4 miscarriages and a lot of tests to have our kids. Pregnancy loss can be traumatic and impact a woman's identity, self-image, and mental health (that said it can also impact men but this podcast I'm focusing on the perspective of women).

In this podcast I open up about our story and also how to support those going it. In the show notes you'll find lots of resources for articles, support groups and podcasts to help you <3.  See you there!

You can find the Becoming Fearlessly You Podcast (Formerly Lots to Lose Podcast) on all major Podcast platforms)

Misfits Market Review + 25% off your first box!

Uncategorized Oct 29, 2020

Today we got our first Misfits Produce box!! I hadn’t heard of it until last week when some of my friends were looking at produce subscription boxes and Misfits Market came recommended.


Here’s a quick overview of what Misfits is: imperfect, organic produce much cheaper than a normal store. Basically it’s all the stuff that was rejected but is still edible. I was surprised because none of the foods were rotten/bad, just minor aesthetic stuff (bumps, spots, oddly shaped etc). They looked incredibly normal!

Since we have a family of 4 I opted to go with the Mayhem box, which is their big box!  This box was under $40 shipped, we got to pick the items from a list to create a box that had our normal staples and some new things to try (Purple Broccolini anyone?!). The website also has lots of recipes for using it up since there are some things I haven’t cooked with before. Let the adventure begin!

Something happened in shipping and the gel pack had a...
