I have been beavering away like a squirrel beaver(?) on my very first attempt at a short intuitive eating ebook/free report. This is a crappy screenshot sneak preview of the cover. I am hoping to get it finished this week and then email out a preview copy to my lovely subscriber list. This is fun …… Read More
In 35 days, I will no longer have to work 50 hours a week for someone else. I will have six months without a day job to swim, walk, practice yoga, relax, read, write, blog, photograph, travel, learn and explore. I have absolutely no plans, I will be living a spontaneous life.
One of the unexpected blessings of this new journey of intuitive eating, or whatever you want to call it, is the emails I receive daily from wonderful women who recognise themselves in my struggle. They are battling with the starve/binge cycle and don’t know how to break free. They may have tried in the past… Read More
Having a ‘high’ metabolism is the holy grail for those of us who struggle with our weight.

Q: What Sucks About Being Thin/Lean/Skinny and having your ideal body? I can hear you, you know, you just said “absolutely nothing” or words to that effect didn’t you? Unfortunately, I don’t believe you. Because if that were true, you would be exactly the weight you wanted to be right now. What is Crappy About… Read More
This post used to be filled with links and videos that no longer work … so in November 2011 I deleted it. I know it’s been linked to a recent post and now there’s nothing here. Sorry. Just hit the back button and try again 😀
Food doesn’t have magical powers. Unless you have a full blown medically diagnosed allergy to something (nuts, gluten etc) then you can eat anything you want. Processed or natural, cooked or raw, manufactured or grown in the back garden makes no difference if you are paying attention to your inner voice. There is no bad food.
This is an updated re-post from my old blog So Katie, I’m sick of all this dieting, punishing myself in the gym, feeling like a failure all the time, and so consumed with how I look that I am missing out on my family, my friends and my life. You say the only way to… Read More
When days are crappy it is relatively easy to pinpoint what is going haywire. Once the problem is identified – I am bored, anxious, frustrated, or tired – I can easily self correct by breathing, meditating, repeating affirmations or my yoga practice.
