A Beautiful Mess - Talking About our Relationship With Food, our Bodies & Movement
Today I’m joined by my amazing friend Kristen, and she shares her story of struggling with disordered eating, orthorexia, obsessive exercise and so much more. I’m so excited to be sharing this conversation with you all. Kristen was so brave in being open and honest, and sharing her most vulnerable self with me and all of us, and I personally gained so much from listening to her experiences and sharing my own thoughts on these topics.
This topic is so near and dear to my heart, because I know how much of my life, and how much joy disordered eating has stolen from me. But I’m also painfully aware of how common an unhealthy relationship with food and our bodies is in our world today. It really is a life mission of mine to devote my energy into doing all I can to push back against the cultural norms around beauty and worth that are propagated in our society. I hope the thoughts and sentiments we share in this episode can remind those of you who are struggling with food or accepting your bodies, of how worthy and enough you really are, but that also you are NOT alone. So so many of us have and do struggle just like you, and for me the work of self love, self care and self acceptance is something I wrestle with everyday, but everyday I become more resilient and more comfortable in my own skin.
I truly hope you enjoy, and if you have any questions please message me on instagram @happyandhealthy96.
Also a HUGE thank you to Kristen for sharing her heart with all of us. Find her on instagram at @kristenmara.
As always, thank you for listening.
