Scurvy, the disease that wiped out thousands of sailors is caused by a lack of vitamin C.

The 18th century explorer, James Cook was the first explorer to beat the scurvy epidemic that plagued long ocean voyages.

How did he do it?

Sauerkraut baby!

Nowadays scurvy is pretty low on our radar as far diseases go. However, we’ve all heard of the benefits of vitamin C for the immune system.

The vitamin C content of cabbage is pretty normal but once that cabbage gets fermented, the vitamin C content skyrockets.

The fermentation process that is used to make sauerkraut also brings with it other kinds of magic like:

it contains several strains of beneficial probiotics that do wonders for the immune system
it helps naturally curb sugar cravings
it is AMAZING for digestion
it contains tons of antioxidants
it is antimicrobial and antifungal
it contains isothiocyanates that may help protect against cancer
it is a prebiotic, which means it feeds the good bugs

So hopefully I’ve convinced you that sauerkraut is a serious superfood.

But the taste…

Perhaps you tried it and promptly gave away your jar? I hear that one a lot.

I’ve converted many, many kraut haters.

Here’s what you’ll do:

👉Mix it into salads. This mitigates the strong flavor. You can also blend sauerkraut into salad dressings reducing the amount of vinegar needed. See my Happy Gut Salad Dressing

👉Use it as a soup topper. I love adding kraut to a hearty vegetable soup or even to chowders to give a little zip. It’s a must on French onion soup.

👉Mix it into cream cheese. This is delicious and actually is tasty enough to serve as a hors d’oeuvre on crostini or crackers. My daughter mixes her sauerkraut in cottage cheese and has it for breakfast.

👉Mix it into hummus. This is a favorite breakfast of mine. It’s delicious on crisp bread or toast with some avocado and a bit of sharp mustard.

👉Mix it into ketchup. I particularly like this with eggs, burgers, dogs or tourtière. I also like adding in a little sriracha for some kick. See my Eggs With Greens Recipe.

👉Mix into salsa. The sour flavor of the kraut happily replaces some of the acid in any salsa recipe. I haven’t met a kid that won’t gobble this up with some nachos. I’m talking about my Quick Tasty Salsa Recipe

👉Mix it into tartar sauce to have with fish, poultry, in wraps or even legumes. Have you ever combined mayo and relish to make tartar sauce? Try elevating your tartar sauce by adding in some chopped kraut. See Kim’s Famous Tartar Recipe.


The way I see it, you have no more excuses to not incorporate this super food into your diet. particularly when our need for vitamin C is high.

Trust me when I tell you that it is an acquired taste and that in a very short time you will be craving it.

Cheers to making healthy delicious ❤️Consider sharing this with someone you love.

This year is about alchemy my friend.

Alchemy is defined as turning base metal into gold.

This year, I’m going to challenge you to turn what you perceived as past failures, into gold nuggets of learning.

👉1) What is the story that goes on in your head as you feel yourself going down that all too familiar path that inevitably leads you to slipping up on your health or weight goals?

For example:

Is it: ‘Awww, just one bite/piece/glass won’t hurt’ ?

Is it: ‘F*** – it. I’ve already fallen off the wagon, may as well let loose’?

Is it: ‘Who am I kidding – I know this will never work’ ?

The amount of gloomy, defeating self-talk going on ”under the hood” will have a direct effect on your success and overall health.

👉2) Now get a pad and paper and get clear on how things usually go down for you and write it down. What is your saboteur story?

👉3) Now question the validity of that story.

For example:

Is it really true that one bite won’t hurt? When you know it’ll send you into a tailspin and cost you a week of struggle to get those cravings back under control. Sounds painful and cruel to me.

Is it really true that if you’ve ‘fallen off’, that ALL is lost and that you need to scrap everything only to begin the yoyo rollercoaster again? That’s like a carpenter tearing down the entire house every time she makes a bad cut. Ridiculous right?

Is it really true that you can never achieve your health and weight goals? Or is it just an excuse to feel victimized by life leaving you so low and powerless that any excuse to self-soothe is good instead of doing the work of showing up for yourself? Absurd. You don’t have a genetic defect preventing you from achieving your goal.

Those are just stories that you’ve come to believe. They are not the truth.

👉4) Now have some fun and name the main character in your story.

For example:
The voice in example #1 could be Tammy Temptress or
Indulgent Ingrid.

The voice in example #2 could be All-Or-Nothing-Andy or Black-And-White-Betty.

The voice in example #3 could be Victim Vinny or


👉5) Now recognize when that voice comes up and when it does, have a comeback ready.

For example:

”Tammy Temptress thinks I should eat this but I know it won’t end well. I think I’ll pass”

”Black and White Betty is getting really loud right now. I should probably reconsider eating this entire carton of ice cream or selling my treadmill on marketplace.”

”Poor me Patty is trying to convince me that I can’t do this. What a sneaky beeatch.”

Recognizing and naming your saboteurs will weaken their power over you.


It’ll take some practice but I promise you, you’ll be blown away by how often they show up once you begin noticing them.

👉6) Every time you notice your story come up, spend one minute focusing on your body, your breathing or on the activity you’re doing. In other words, be fully present for one minute or three breaths.

Your brain is capable of incredible change. This is commonly referred to as neuroplasticity.

Noticing your limiting beliefs (saboteur stories) and then bringing in a few moments of mindfulness is powerful to begin changing your neural circuitry, aka changing habits.

Doing these steps will start to discredit the old stories you’ve been telling yourself that are not serving you.

If you’re interested in taking a deeper dive, you can learn more about your saboteurs HERE and HERE .

If we’ve worked together in the past, I’m offering this as a loving reminder ❤️

If we haven’t yet worked together, please check out my PRACTICAL TIPS FOR MAINTAINING OVER THE HOLIDAYS

I don’t have too many rules with clients.

One thing that makes me incredibly sad is when clients come back to see me after the holidays having back-tracked.

They don’t even have to speak, I can see the look on their faces.

My heart sinks when this happens because it is such an act of self-cruelty.

MY RULE this holiday season IS NO BACK-TRACKING.


If you’re aiming to maintain your current weight over the holidays then get on the scale right now. I’ll wait for you…

Add a little fluctuation weight, say 2 to 4 lbs.

Current weight + fluctuation weight = ⏰Alarm weight ⏰

Now write down that alarm weight and post it on your scale.

Tell yourself this.

Times when you avoid the scale (aka the holidays) is probably when you need to check-in and keep yourself accountable the most.

What gets measured gets managed.

Here’s another way to look at it.

Say you had a savings goal.

Would you go on a shopping spree, stop checking your bank balance and then get really down and bummed-out because you don’t have that extra $500 you were counting on at the end of the month?

Sounds ridiculous right.

I hear the equivalent of that story every year.

You may be thinking; the scale is toxic for me.

The scale isn’t toxic.

Facing the results of your neglect is toxic (again, this applies to clients that have the tools. Without the tools, stepping on the scale can feel cruel).

By staying accountable you will be better equipped to make the micro-adjustments that will keep your weight stable.

You have the tools, use them.

An ‘all or nothing’ attitude has no place here.

Back-tracking is cruel. You deserve better.


The marketing and tech part of my business is the hardest part for me. I never signed up to become a marketing expert and I resist that aspect of my business a lot.

But, if I want to do what I love, make a living and actually connect with folks, then ‘putting myself out there’ and (what I perceive as) hustling comes with the territory.

Recently I’ve been struggling.

I’ve been scattered, stressed, doing a little of everything and bouncing from one thing to the next. Basically spinning my wheels.

And boy have the beatings ever been brutal.

When I say beatings; I’m referring to my self-talk or saboteur stories, basically the bullshit that plays on repeat in the background of my mind.

Once I started paying attention, I caught myself chastising myself for being lazy, scattered, undisciplined.

These beatings were very real and have probably been going on in the background for years if not decades.

I’m pretty convinced now that one of the keys to making lasting change involves revisiting that self-talk.

You weaken your saboteurs by exposing and labelling them.

So finally I woke up. Or put differently, I started NOTICING my saboteur stories.

Wait a sec.

I’m not lazy or undisciplined (I can be a tad scattered).

I just don’t have all of the tools yet.

I’m beating myself up for not being an expert when I never even learned the basics.

Recognizing the nay-saying voices was the first step to silencing them for long enough for me to dial down the stress, get clear on my next steps, and move towards action.

I then reached out to my marketing gal and my tech guy and we made a plan to grow me in this area. Stay tuned 😉

I’m sharing all of this with you in case you ever spin out about your health or your weight.

What’s your self-talk when that happens?

Pretty nasty eh.

I urge you to reframe that story and consider that you aren’t defective, weak, doomed or whatever other story you’ve bought into.

You just don’t have all of the tools yet.

You just need a plan.

My job as your coach will be to:

help establish your action plan.
give you the tools (or just fine tune the tools you already have).
help get you connected to how you feel when you use the tools.
help keep you focused on your plan.
make sure the whole shebang is doable and sustainable long term.

Read what clients have to say HERE

I got into this game because of a burning desire to ROCK my golden years.

In case you didn’t know, I co-owned a retirement home for several years.

Hearing ; ”The golden years; not so golden” several times a week from our seniors wigged me out.

That’s when I began searching and when I landed on holistic nutrition.

In case you haven’t noticed, the system that manages disease is not super well equipped to build health.

That part is up to you.

Diet and lifestyle changes can seem daunting and overwhelming.

I get it. I’ve been there.

Making these changes will be a process.

You will be in the driver’s seat deciding on how quickly or slowly you want to go.

Reach out to see if I’m the right person to help or sign up to stay in the loop.

My moto is: Make Healthy Delicious.

Adopting a healthier way of eating will only stick if it is sustainable – that means that you can keep it up and see yourself eating this way forever.

In other words, it must be D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.

I meet so many folks that have this weird belief that if it tastes good, it can’t be good for you.


Our taste buds evolved to seek out the best tasting, most nutritious food.

I’m talking real food here.

Don’t get this mixed up with processed, engineered foods. Those guys are cheating and tricking our taste receptors with nasty chemicals and sugar.

Imagine this; you’re in your garden or at the farmer’s market and you’re tasting a freshly picked, organic tomato that’s still warm from the sun. Now imagine a typical grocery store tennis ball tomato in February.

Not the same animal right? The freshly picked garden tomato is actually more nutrient dense.

That’s what you’re tasting. You were built for this.

In fact, once clients work at getting those processed foods out of their diet, they often notice a taste bud revolution.

Natural foods taste better and their old (processed ) favorites become much less appealing, if not downright nasty.

Another fallacy that needs to go away is that butter is bad for you.

Butter is actually a gut-healing food that contains an anti-inflammatory compound called butyrate as well as essential fat-soluble vitamins.

Moderation is always key, but this recipe is a perfect example of how wholesome food can (and must) be delicious.

Garlic butter is a staple in my kitchen. When I make this recipe, I maximize my time in the kitchen and make lots of it to have on hand. I always have some frozen as a quick go-to to add zip and flavour when I’m in a rush.

This recipe can be used to flavour vegetables, legumes, mushrooms, fish, seafood, meat or poultry. You can use it as a dip for your next fondue and of course spread it on sourdough bread to make garlic bread or add zip to a grilled sandwich.

Cheers to making healthy delicious

Read the following 5 chapters and try to see if you can recognize where you’re at on your health journey?

Chapter 1:
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes me forever to find a way out.

Chapter 2 :
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place
but, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter 3:
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in… it’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Chapter 4 :
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter 5 :
I walk down another street.

(Portia Nelson, There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk: The Romance of Self-Discovery)

I lived in chapter 1 and 2 for many years.

These were the years where my discontent was at its highest, when my body hurt, when I got prescribed pills to ease the physical pain and other ones to help lift the feeling of despair and the hard knot that was always in my solar plexus.

The dominant sentiment of chapter 1 and 2 was ‘it isn’t my fault’.

I felt like my body was betraying me and like I had very little control over my health and how my tomorrows would unfold.

I felt like a victim of my genetics, my surroundings, my cravings, even of my friends and family’s choices and opinions…

I moved out of chapters 1 and 2 and into chapter 3 when I began OWNING IT.

I’d still fall into the hole a lot (old ruts and habits), but I knew where I went wrong and I started taking responsibility.

This was a really gradual process for me but I remember how thrilling it felt to even imagine that I had agency over my health and my future. This was new territory. Scary and exciting.

If you’re in chapter 3; CELEBRATE!

This is where the rubber meets the road and real change starts to happen. Strap on your seat belt my friend.

Just noticing when we fall into old habits is the first step to long-term, sustainable change.

This Chapter calls for kindness and gentleness. It’s not easy to fall into the hole, own your shit and get back up.

It’s a process ❤️

Once you take responsibility and start to notice; stepping around the hole (successfully changing the habit) is just the reasonable next step.

Halleluiah – amazing Chapter 4!

Chapter 4 is all clunky and uncomfortable and messy at first…

Then you may become a bit preachy and self-righteous in all of your lofty Chapter 4 ways… Hopefully you have people to call you out if you get all holier than thou – I do!

I envision Chapter 5 as doing your own thing, accepting others where they’re at on their journey without the preaching and the self-righteousness.

Chapter 5 is about feeling good in your body and in your life.

And then, having the conviction to do what it takes to keep yourself in that space despite outside opinion, wanting to fit in or the urge to give in to old-rut-self-destructive behaviour.

I’m not sure if I’ll ever be completely there…

I still bump up against my demons and slip-slide back a couple/few Chapters every now and then.

It’s a work in progress but it’s also great ride… Are you ready?


Where are you on your health path?

Meet Taylor.

Taylor is a beautiful, smart, and athletic university student that came to me as a last resort to help deal with pain from a condition called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).

AS is a form of arthritis that mainly affects the spine, lower back and sacroiliac joints.

At 23 years old, Taylor had already tried a wide variety of medications ranging from over the counter meds (Robaxacet) to NSAIDs to codeine and opiod analgesics.

Although the various meds helped somewhat, they all came with a laundry list of side-effects and most lost effectiveness over time requiring higher and higher doses.

The other concern with these meds is that, although they help relieve symptoms in the short term, they do nothing to address the root-cause of inflammation.

We decided to go with a personalized Metabolic Balance nutrition plan.

Metabolic Balance was designed by its founder the late Dr Wolf Funfac, to help combat inflammation in his patients.

2 weeks in, her pain was not gone but it was better. She only needed to take her opiod analgesic twice since starting her new diet and lifestyle journey.

6 weeks in, with the consent of her pharmacist, she was able to discontinue her primary prescribed pain med: Diclofenac.

Over the following weeks she noticed that her recovery time was much shorter after playing basketball (one or two days instead of one week).

She was able to ski for a full 7 hours whereas before she wouldn’t have lasted more than 3 or 4 hours before her pain would force her to stop.

Ten weeks in she started running.

4 months in, Taylor reported that her new diet and lifestyle changes were making a bigger difference than the meds ever did in her case. She also noted that most days, the pain wasn’t even on her radar.

So what moved the needle on Taylor’s inflammation?

👉Was it cutting out chemical additives (artificial flavourings, colourings, preservatives) that are so abundant in fast and processed foods?

👉Was it by ensuring that she gave her body a wider range of nutrients through wholesome natural foods (the body needs a lot of nutrients to heal) ?

👉Was it because we worked hard at improving her digestion so that she could actually absorb all of those beautiful nutrients?

👉Was it by being mindful of her ‘body terrain’ by keeping acidity low?

👉Was it by stabilizing blood sugar levels? There is a proven link between insulin resistance and inflammation.

👉Was it by cutting out all inflammatory (processed) fats and adding in anti-inflammatory fats?

👉Was it by being mindful of stress and sleep quality?

I don’t think it’s fair to single out any one thing as responsible for the shift that Taylor experienced.

As with most things, it’s usually the combination of all of the changes that adds up to noticeable results.

It’s about giving the body the right elements and then getting out of the way.

The more I learn, the more amazed I am by the body’s ability to attain balance and heal.

What I know for sure is that the power of food and lifestyle changes are REAL, Taylor is another great example.

I want to acknowledge Taylor’s determination and trust in the process.

She took full responsibility for her healing by making the required changes and she’s reaping the results.


Here’s what Taylor has to say:

”Before beginning my journey with Kim, I was experiencing constant pain in my lower back, hips, and my right hand/wrist.
The pain was from inflammation, and I was told it was all correlated to my ankylosing spondylitis.

I had tried meloxicam, and diclofenac which each came with their own interesting side effects but did not reduce the pain like I hoped. My next step was to try biologic drugs which would have suppressed my immune system more and most likely caused bigger health issues.

I was not for this. I was getting sick often enough and I didn’t have a good feeling about suppressing my immune system more than it already was in my early 20’s.

I then started hearing stories about young people on these drugs, and finally COVID-19 hit. These were all signs that I needed to find something else. This led me to messaging Kim.

My experience with this holistic nutritional approach was an interesting one! It started out tough and eye-opening.

I was a big snacker, and I loved my junk food. I was always eating. When I got my blood results back and saw that my inflammation levels were over 5x the norm, I knew this was the right idea.

The first few days were the worst in all aspects, cooking was hard, it was hard mentally to not snack at any time and was hard physically because my body was just not use to this eating style.

But after a few days I wasn’t feeling the pain that I was use to. My back wasn’t as sore, the pain in my hand had faded and I was able to write and draw for more than 5 minutes at a time, I was shocked!

After several weeks I was really seeing a difference, I was able to add good quality dairy, gluten and red meat back in after many weeks without and not suffer from inflammatory symptoms, moderation is key of course!

Having a busy schedule helped me stay focused on what I was eating. I would meal prep for the week and all I had to do was warm it up or take it out of the fridge. I realized that the reason I was eating so much junk was because I wasn’t taking the time, or simply didn’t feel like cooking.

It is important to note that I am no chef, up until 2 years ago I didn’t even know how to cook a chicken breast! I am now making meals that are appetizing, filling, and so tasty.

This journey has not only taught me so much about food and what to look for in my food, it has taught me what is best for my body!

Working with Kim has been so delightful. She is very understanding of my needs and understands that life gets in the way sometimes and we fall off track!

She thought ahead and has even created a game plan for when/if that happens to get me back on track more easily.

She has helped me find what works best for my body, and is continuously giving recommendations to try and giving recipes that are easily altered to my plan and my preferred taste.

She has allowed me to discover new foods that are not only high quality but many which I prefer over what I used to eat!”


Thank you choosing me to be a part of your health journey and for sharing your inspiring story.

Reach out if you’re ready to tackle your inflammation naturally.


Making the connections between what you’re eating and how you feel is crucial for long term sustainability.

Most of us have never been taught to do this.

Diets will never be the answer. Making the connection between how you feel and what you’re eating is the key to staying motivated and integrating a healthier diet that will stick.

We’re a bit of a band-aid society.

By that I mean, we’re accustomed to squashing or covering up symptoms.

Rarely do we go further upstream and get curious as to why the symptom is showing up in the first place.

A good example are antacids.

Many people have this hate relationship going on with their stomach acid. Stomach acid isn’t the bad guy, it’s actually super essential. More on this some other time…

Antacid use is a perfect example of squashing a symptom, and they can be very bad for you if you’re using them on a regular basis.

If you’ve ever struggled with reflux, bloating or gas, I encourage you to investigate a couple of things before you reach for the Tums or the Gaviscon:


Are you stressed?

The hormones of stress turn off digestion. These hormones are designed to set you up to fight or to run for your life. Digesting your lunch isn’t a priority when you’re being chased by a bear.
You may not be encountering that many bears or tigers over the course of your week, but your body can’t differentiate between our (many, many) modern stressors and being chased by a large, toothy predator.

If you’re rushing, you’re likely not chewing.

It’s estimated that most people chew on average 7 times per bite.

That’s not enough.

When eating meat or raw vegetables, you should aim for 25-35 chews per bite. Chewing is one of the best things you can do for digestion. Test it out for yourself.

Did you overeat?

Our bodies secrete stomach acid and digestive juices to help breakdown our food. We have the capacity to secrete limited amounts of this juice.
Overeating overloads the capacity of those precious digestive juices to do a good job. Aim to stop eating when you’re about 80% full.

Are you carrying a few extra pounds?
For many people, bloating and reflux are the red flags that they’ve reached their critical weight. Bloating often precedes weight gain.

Are you getting your probies?
I train clients to get into the habit of incorporating a little bit of fermented (or probiotic) food every day (or with each meal if they’re weak digesters).

Every traditional culture has its own type of fermented food and there’s a reason why they’re making such a comeback.
These fermented foods go a long way to support the gut and digestion. If you find yourself reaching for antacids, you may want to experiment with these superfoods. A little goes a long way.

What did you eat?
Our bodies don’t do well with highly processed or chemicalized foods. Next time you feel reflux or heartburn or bloating, check out the ingredients.
Are there unpronounceables in the list?
Keep in mind that one artificial flavoring can contain up to 30 different chemicals that were not part of our diet as recently as 40 or 50 years ago.

If you can’t pronounce it, there’s a good chance that your body doesn’t know what to do with it.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we still struggle.

I’ve been trying to make legumes my friend for over 10 years now. Eating them would invariably cause painful bloating and gas despite doing all of the things I just listed.

I recently discovered this ginger drink that allows me to enjoy legumes symptom-free.

Ginger shot recipe:

-2 tbsp of roughly chopped or grated ginger
-1 tbsp of lemon juice
-1 pinch of sea salt
-1 cup of water.

Blend this together, store in a sealed jar for up to 1 month in the fridge.

Try taking 1 ounce of this magic juice before a meal and notice your symptoms.

The flavor will take some getting used to. My taste buds took about 3 or 4 days to adjust to the sharp taste of the ginger.

Give it a try, and let me know how it goes?

Share this with a gassy friend.

I thought you may need some inspiration on this rainy Monday.

A few weeks ago, I had an appointment with a beautiful young client that came to me for weight loss as well as few other issues such as inflammation, migraines and cravings.

She hadn’t been seeing any progress over the last couple of sessions.

She was very forthright about why she wasn’t getting the results.

She was struggling with various stressors that were distracting her from doing what she needed to do to achieve her goals.

On top of that, some physical things weren’t being addressed such as not drinking enough water and sluggish bowels.

I was witnessing the makings of a perfect storm; all of the elements were present for throwing in the towel.

Not seeing results is always a really frustrating place to be.

We talked about several things during that appointment.

The first thing was to realign with her values.

It’s much easier to stay committed when your goals are aligned with your values.


The main reason that brought her to this work was because she wanted to lose a little weight.

However, once we started to dig a little deeper, we uncovered some bigger reasons that were easier for her to get behind.

She has a young family and wants to be at her best for her people. She wants to prevent health problems down the road and she wants to set a good example and a strong foundation for her growing family.

Pretty noble reasons for undertaking a health journey in my books.

Realigning with those values made it easier to recommit.

The second thing we discussed was something I call saboteur work.

We all have saboteurs. Their job is to keep us safe and maintain the status quo.

Again, they’re there to keep us safe but they aren’t very discerning and they perceive ANY change as dangerous.

As soon as we’re on the brink of making a lasting change, the saboteurs get squirrelly and their voices start piping up.

Your saboteur is particularly adept at taking a small piece of truth and stretching, twisting and distorting that truth into a powerful argument against committing to a path of transformation and positive change.

Saboteur voices often sound something like this: ‘forget it’, ‘it’ll never work’ , ‘just quit now’, ‘just one piece won’t hurt…’ and they all add up and the next thing you know, you’re back to square one

Not a fun place to be.

Recognizing that these voices are just stories and not the absolute truth is a giant step towards reaching your goals.

Once you start recognizing these stories, you can then change the rhetoric to something that is more aligned with your goals.

Where the mind goes – man follows.

The next time we met, she had lost another 4 lbs after being ‘stuck’ for over a month. She was back on track and moving towards her goal.


Here’s what she did to turn things around:

She took care of the physical stuff; started drinking more water and was mindful of keeping her bowels regular.

The other thing she did was turn down the pressure.

We tend to be our own worst critics especially when we buy into our saboteur stories.

She reminded herself that this wasn’t a race and that she had a whole lifetime to perfect her new healthy habits.

Instead of buying into her ‘old stories’ she decided to try a different approach.

She slacked off on the pressure, stopped being so rigid and self-critical.

Finally, she decided to make a few relatively small changes that were not perfectly aligned with her plan but that allowed her to enjoy the process a lot more.

She essentially allowed herself a few strategic small ‘cheats’ in the spirit of staying the course and ensuring sustainability.

Sometimes the smallest changes have the most profound effect.

I translate this as being kind and gentle…

It worked

Her body responded and she’s back on track and very close to her goal.

I hope you choose to believe in yourself.
