❓❓Why is being stressed like eating a cupcake🎂??Feb 28, 2022
For years I tried to stop eating sugar because I thought that was my problem. And I have many women over 40 tell me the same thing.
They say, “I know I shouldn't eat it, but I keep doing it.” Often, it's uttered with a hefty dose of shame and guilt.
And I get it because I was there. I even wrote a book called Cookie Dough in the Dark ….. and the dark represents the shame I felt.
Craving sugar (aka simple carbs, popcorn, crackers, chips, pop, alcohol, bread, pasta just to name a few) and overeating sugar is a symptom of something else. And we either don’t know that or we don’t know how to deal with the deeper issues.
In the video above, I talk about how STRESS is affecting our cravings and that we need to learn how to deal with stress instead of focusing on the cravings.
When we learn how to address and fix the root cause of our cravings, emotional boredom / stress eating, we achieve long-term results instead of a quick fix.
Root cause is something I talk a lot about with female clients in my Vibrant Living membership.
Because if we don't get to the root cause, how can we fix the real problem?
Cravings are always a symptom of other problems.
Our Vibrant Living Mindset library is filled with amazing coaching calls that have helped me and my clients learn the skills needed to transform our health and reduce our cravings long-term instead of another diet, meal plan or quick fix. Here are the coaching call categories and there are invaluable nuggets to help you. As of Feb 2022, there are over 58 replays.

Ready to give yourself the gift of amazing health, join our Vibrant Living membership where I teach you during our coaching calls HOW to live a life without deprivation and teach you how to develop the skills you need to lose weight long-term and reduce your cravings and get rid of feelings of guilt and shame.
What I know for sure, is that the women in the Vibrant Living Community LOVE the consistent wisdom, motivation, support and accountability that they receive! It is making a BIG difference when it comes to cravings, overeating, emotional eating, losing weight, starting any new behavioural change and that is why each month I create challenges and we do coaching calls ( you can catch the replays).
I’m a wife and mum, personal trainer, fitness/pilates instructor, Behaviour Change Specialist, Nutrition Coach, Pain-Free Movement Specialist, author of Cookie Dough in the Dark, creator of Vibrant Living Membership - your ONE STOP shop for movement + nutrition + mindset..... among many other things!! I’ve had many issues dealing with the scale going up and down, a muffin top that wouldn’t disappear, emotional eating binges that did not involve carrots and struggling with insecurity! Through all of this I just wanted to feel normal. I wanted to be happy like everyone else!
In my teens and 20’s I wanted the quick fixes, the magic pills, the fairy dust – whatever I could get my hands on to make me a lean, happy and sexy machine. Yup, found out it doesn’t exist. I wanted to cry!! I was so frustrated. I felt like I was going around and around until I was completely exhausted and back at the starting point. And when I talk with other women they feel that way too. So, I delved further into holistic health – the emotional, mental and physical – wrote a book, and have been in this field for many years helping 1000’s of women.
I discovered that by being smarter, not working harder, I could get the results I wanted and also for my clients. It started with some really small shifts that I will share with you over time. With this new knowledge, I felt ALIVE, VIBRANT and COMFORTABLE in my own skin. And my clients felt this way too!
My mission is to continue to help women step into the body they WANT. To feel confident & sexy, in control of their food choices and have their clothes fit just as they should while having the energy to live a VIBRANT life.
