I believe that taking excellent care of your health is the key to transforming every area of your life --
and it all starts with the most important relationship in your life: the one you have with yourself.
Hey, I'm Carrie.
every workout you try fails to stick. And each time you get your hopes up and then fall off, it further cements your belief that you are what’s wrong and that you’re destined to feel like this forever.
having time, energy and willpower to make it happen feels literally impossible.
you see others seemingly managing their health, weight and life with confidence.
You may be struggling to lose weight or to have enough energy to get through the day, and it may feel impossible to imagine how to add healthy eating or exercise to your miles-long to-do list. And yet… you know you could be feeling better.
where you wake up each morning feeling confident and inspired, excited for your day. A life where you love and appreciate your body, and your relationship with food feels easy.
you imagine a life...
I spent most of my adult life working as a lawyer in a corporate job, and I know firsthand the challenges that come with trying to fit wellness into a jam-packed week.
Back when I was juggling a crazy schedule and long hours, I knew I should be exercising, eating more vegetables, stressing less — they were all always somewhere on my to-do list.
But there were only so many hours in a day, I only had so many brain cells to spare, and by the time I would get around to thinking about doing something healthy for myself, I’d be out of time and running on fumes.
Swinging between restrictive diets and overindulging on weekends
Feeling chronically stressed out and tired but not having the time or energy to make a change
Trying out every diet plan, workout regime or cleanse I found to try to make my own body work for me -- with limited success
This went on for years, until it finally occurred to me that if I were going to create peace in my body once and for all, I needed to find solutions that actually worked for MY body in MY real life.
I began studying health, starting with nutrition and then going down a rabbit hole of all things wellness....
yet whatever success I achieved was always short-lived and impossible to sustain in real life.
I lived this way for years —
Knowing I should be waking up every day feeling better with energy and joy - instead of tired, overwhelmed and unhappy with what I saw in the mirror

I began to gain an appreciation for all the miraculous ways we can support our bodies with food. This quickly expanded to understanding how EVERYTHING we do impacts our body – how we move, how we relate to other people, our spiritual practices, and most importantly, our relationship with ourselves.
I discovered that the messages I’d received for all those years – that I needed to follow a certain diet, force myself to do workouts I hated, beat back my desire to eat and learn to live with hunger if I wanted to have a body I loved – were in fact the root cause of my inability to lose weight and keep it off.
I learned that food is not the enemy, that I am the expert on what works best for my body, and that the path to having a body I loved involved going deep within myself instead of staying on the surface of what I was seeing in the mirror.
A whole new approach to wellness...
