Over the summer I got two amazing books from two amazing girlfriends, both on nourishing and loving our bodies.
I wanted to have both of these fine ladies on Glimpse TV because their books both opened my mind to a whole new way of relating to my body and food that I’d never considered before.
On a spontaneous trip to New York City I asked them if they’d be willing to come on Glimpse TV together as the first ever duo on my show.
What truly struck me about both of their enthusiastic responses to the idea was the distinct lack of competition present.
Both of these gorgeous women launched books on the same topic in the same month in the same city with many contacts in common.
And yet, they were so excited to share the spotlight with one another to make sure as many women as possible could hear the important messages that our bodies know what they need and it’s up to us to become their loving caretakers.
We covered a lot of territory in this rich conversation. Watch the episode to find out:
Why how we talk about other women has so much to do with our relationship with ourselves
How to turn jealousy into inspiration
How to use the fact that we’re animals to our advantage
The importance of pleasure when it comes to our bodies, food, and weight loss
How to use our cravings as our guides instead of our foes
Why how you feel is critical to your digestion
The consequences of not making space and time for pleasure
Why trying to control your body will never work long term
Why cookbooks and romance novels are keeping the publishing industry afloat

I was feeling a little dried-up this fall. Part of it was seasonal, I’m sure, and part of it was finally downshifting after more than a year of full-on production (book launch, speaking tour, wedding and The Freedom Immersion.) With the exhale came the feeling that I’d lost touch with my creative essence. My joie…
I have earned 5 fitness certifications (and I’m signed up to get two more this year), yet when I go to the gym, I like someone else to tell me what to do. I could literally run a gym and teach all of the classes myself, but it feels better to follow someone else. When…

I’ve recently become obsessed with Buti Yoga. I literally cannot get enough. (If you haven’t tried it yet, get ready to sweat your buns off and tap into your womanpower all at the same time. If you’ve never done hip circles while holding Warrior II, you don’t know what you’re missing.) There’s one teacher whose…
We’re now in the sandwich space between Thanksgiving (in the US) and Christmas. Opportunities abound to spend time with loved ones. And opportunities abound for those very same ones we love to push our buttons. Unless you’re living on another planet where feathers never get ruffled by other people, especially the ones you share genetic…
So 2014 is winding down. Shocking, but true. It’s that time when we reconnect with friends and family and take stock of what happened this time we went around the sun. While this season is festive and filled with love and amazing, it can also be really hard. A Royal Setup for Disappointment First, there’s…
About a month before our wedding I got a book in the mail with a beautiful brunette on the cover. I get a steady stream of books to review, and sometimes I do so in a timely manner. And other times not so much. Technically, I didn’t have “time”to be diving into a new book….
When you feel called to say yes to an invitation, even if you’re not sure why, simply say yes. Four years ago almost to the day my friend texted me that Chris Guillebeau was in my hometown, Portland, ME, on his book tour. I happened to be in Portland that day with my mom. (I…
We need each other. There’s a lot of talk in the self-actualization space about masculine energy and feminine energy. When I first heard about this concept I got very tied up in worrying about which one I was using and whether or not I was doing it “right.” Most of the time I felt like…
