On this episode, I talk about my history with body-related issues — starting when I was a young dancer to my college years and my post-collegiate experience with exercise addiction — and what I did to get past them. I spent years obsessing over how I looked and constantly checking in with my appearance — and what I disliked about it. Now I’m at a place where I may not always be totally “body positive,” but I’m at least body neutral, and that feels incredibly freeing. Join me!

Really enjoyed this one too. I also thought the pt one was also great-really informative. Well done on your not -5k PB. my boyfriend ran a 2.37 marathon….and then found out the course was a little short!! He has since got his official pb and you will get your 5k one too.

AMEN SISTA! I listened to this as I ran this afternoon and couldn’t agree more with so much of what you said. Why are we so hard on ourselves.
Another great episode, keep them coming!

I am so hard on myself. I have never been thin. My 10 yr old daughter is a dancer. She is tall for her age & not stick thin. I worry about her all the time but she does not even think about her body — she only worries about dancing and if she can do it. I am SO hoping that she it not plagued with these issues too. At age 42, it’s time to stop beating myself up! Thanks for a great podcast. you are awesome!!!!!!
