From the minute you wake up until the minute you go to sleep, it feels like you’re running.
You were told you could be anything you wanted to be when you grew up. Even President of the United States! But instead of anything you’re trying to be EVERYTHING.
You’re tired and overwhelmed with responsibility. You’re basically running on fumes.
It’s not that you don’t want to be healthy. It’s just hard to stay on track when there are so many other demands. Sure, you’d love to clean up your diet, lose a few pounds and feel more energized. But taking care of yourself?
That feels like one more item on the to-do list.
Imagine hitting the reset button. Not only on your body, but on your mind.
You wake up feeling refreshed. You notice that your clothes are fitting better.
Your mind is clear, your body is calm. And you’re able to take care of business (and the kids and everything else) with steady energy all day long. It’s almost like there are more hours in the day! And you’re actually smiling and enjoying it all.
Earlier this year, I worked with a supermom named Sarah.
She’s one of these women who has 3 different freelance jobs, carts her kids from activity to activity, participates in local organizations and cooks dinner every night. As you might guess, she came to me feeling completely wiped out.
Sarah became my client because she wanted to focus on eating cleaner, healthier food.
And she did exactly that. In the end, she was feeling more energy and had even dropped some weight. But that wasn’t the interesting part.
The interesting part was this:
Sarah was just as busy as before, but now she had more space. She felt more centered and laughed more often. I remember she even started cleaning out her closets! She told me “I just feel like myself again – it’s like I’m back on track.”
It wasn’t a magic pill. And Sarah isn’t alone. I’ve seen this happen again and again.
There are different ways to try and get back on track. Have you tried these?
“It’s time for a diet. Or cleanse.”
There’s something really motivating about taking on a new diet plan or cleanse program. Part of the attraction is having a structure or set of rules to follow.
But here’s the downside.
Following a set of strict rules can reinforce a pattern of not listening to your own body. Huge problem. Further, it feeds into a destructive habit of judging ourselves “good” or “bad.” If we eat this, we are “good.” If we eat that, we are “bad.”
Yes, a diet plan or cleanse can help you lose weight or feel good in the short term. But the motivation usually wears off. What stays? A stick to beat yourself with because you’re not being “good” anymore.
“I’m gonna meditate every morning!”
Hey, that’s awesome. A mindfulness-based practice can work wonders.
On Day 1 you feel good. Day 2, your mind keeps drifting to that pile of bills on the counter. On Day 3 you have an early meeting so you skip meditation and promise you’ll do it tomorrow. On Day 4, your kid wakes up early.
By Day 5, you’ve lost momentum. Your life just feels too busy to add another daily task.
“My friend has been drinking some kind of juice or shake.”
The supplement and weight loss industry is enormous. Everyone wants a quick fix. Whatever situation you’re up against – weight gain, anxiety, exhaustion – there’s surely something you can take in pill or shake form.
I’m all for giving our bodies much-needed nutrients.
But what’s IN those expensive products, anyway? And are you going to keep taking them forever?
Each of these approaches are different, but they all assume you need to do more, spend more, be more strict, and deny yourself and your cravings.
This Fall, get back on track by reinventing your relationship to food. And, to yourself.
Your body is unique and so are your challenges. We’ll start by assessing where you are, and where you’d like to be. Plus, we’ll make the one simple mindset shift that is essential for healthy, happy living.
From misleading health food claims to insatiable cravings, there are a million different ways to fall off track. This week, you’ll gain tools for avoiding such pitfalls. You’ll also be introduced to a new, simplified way of eating. But there’s no dogma here. You can be vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo or anything in between. The techniques you learn will apply to (and enhance!) any style of eating.
Sugar addiction? Lagging energy? Chemical exposures you aren’t even aware of? This week will cover these topics and more. Plus, you’ll begin experimenting with your food and gaining valuable information about your body and life.
Here’s where it gets awesome. You’re going to start to feeling positive changes in your body! You’ll also gain confidence in situations like restaurants and dealing with family members who eat differently.
Finally, you’ll take what you’ve learned about your unique body and define a plan for moving forward, on track. Don’t worry…you’ll have access to this course and community for long after the official program ends. We’re playing the long game, together!

Unfortunately, slipping off track leads to sluggish energy, digestive trouble and other, more serious health conditions.
There are many ways to try and reclaim yourself and your health. But it can be a rollercoaster of attempt after attempt. How about stepping off the ride and joining us for something more sane?
