THINGS I READ // WROTE ::

-Molly Sims on Body Image. 

Comfortable shoes. 

Omg. Whole Foods. $$$ 

-Loved this article from Sakara Life! especially this line::
“Those extra 5-10 pounds, that place where your body naturally wants to be – that’s your life. That’s your late night pizza with your man, that Sunday morning bottomless brunch, your favorite cupcake in the whole entire world because you wanted to treat yourself. Those 5-10 pounds are your favorite memories, your unforgettable trips, your celebrations of life.”

-Loved this super feminist blog post about the holidays. So much good stuff in here. Eye-opening. For instance this line is so good::
“the concept of food being connected to morality remains: we judge people as good when they eat salad and yogurt and chia seeds, and bad when they eat donuts and burgers. We turn this inward on ourselves too. And we don’t have to. Instead we can adopt the belief that we are just inherently good, that we never need to be perfectionisty about anything, and that health and eating are not connected to morality.”

-I wrote this last year about the holidays but it is still very true this year.

TO LISTEN // WATCH::

-Amy Schumer on Body Image & style please watch!

I love both of them so much & this video was so fun! 

Best most important TED talk I’ve seen.

11906269_110607259307034_944634875_n-So I heard on Alanis Morissette’s new podcast (yes she has one, listen here) about this communication style and I’m going to try to adapt it as much as I remember to in my life. This post outlines the steps.

-Loved this story about COLOR. Listen to it. Fascinating!

-I loved this episode of This American Life this week especially the first act about the high school girls.

-Last week’s episode of Katie Wonders in case you missed it!

TO EAT::

-Dying to make these brownies they happen to be sugar and gluten free too.

-The dip I’m dying to dip into. Creamy spinach and avocado dip.

-This recipe isn’t actually to eat it’s to smell but it look awesome.

TO TRY // EXPLORE ::

-I love baths and this one is my new obsession thanks to Kris Carr.

New social media where you can only post one super good link per day. I’m into it.

-Look at this pretty jewelry line. They’re giving us a donation to a charity with every purchase we make using this code::  “WellnessWonderland

-How cute is this pin?

-Um I need this how clever is this mermaid blanket?

-How cute are these nails? Perfect for the holidays I think.

-I haven’t done gift guides in a couple years but I did them in 2012 & 2013 and so here they are if you want to meander them!

Check out my friend abbey’s sweet shop Amiga!  Perfect for all your holiday shopping needs. At least I want everything.

I wrote this about what I think a Wellness Wonderland is::
12301213_188630408146476_517711102_n

+ one more thing
TO LISTEN to::
my playlist of the holiday season that I’ll continue adding to throughout the season if you want to jam festively with me.

082 | Caroline Dooner part 1 on Body Image, Creativity, & ‘The Fuck It Diet’

Caroline-Dooner_avatar_1432421720-277x277I was excited about interviewing today’s guest for weeks. She is seriously so cool and I am a huge fan girl, so naturally I had a lot of questions to ask. We ended up speaking for over 2 hours late one night so I’m actually having to split this episode into 2 parts, the first of which is airing today and covers the first part of Caroline’s story with dieting and restriction as well as some deep talk on body image and weight. If you don’t know Caroline, you’re missing out but no worries after these two episodes you’ll get to know her really well. She’s the ultimate triple threat, an actress, signer, and emotional freedom from food and anti- dieting coach as the founder of the Fuck It Diet. Her approach to food and weight is amazing and her 10 day free mini course on a diet recovery is super awesome. She also offers this rad soul recovery program that is changing lives left and right by helping people tune into their creativity as a way to heal their relationships with themselves, their bodies, and food.

My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom: Some of them are TWEETABLES…Just click right on ‘em!

“In regards to restriction it’s not the food, it’s the state of mind about the food.”

“When you’re living for the future, it never happens.”

“It’s not the weight-loss habits that matter, it’s the way you live your life. It’s the quality of life that you are giving yourself.”

“The more you accept yourself, and love yourself, and want the best for yourself, and are not judging yourself based on how you look, how you weigh or how well you did on your diet today the more likely you are to eat balanced foods.”

“It’s essential for progress on issues, to have people on both sides defending human rights.”

“Your body is so much more powerful and able to regulate in a way that we think is broken.”

“Its not that we are afraid of being fat, it’s about what we make fat mean.”
