It’s hard to get unstuck from bad habits, negative thought processes, and emotional triggers. Or, rather, it’s hard when you tell yourself it’s hard. I love the idea of becoming unstuck, of wrenching yourself free with the power of your … Continue reading
[source] Howdy friends! It’s a beautiful Friday, and I just wanted to share some of that beauty with you–in the form of some great insights from other beautiful people. So, to get your weekend started off right: Have you lost … Continue reading
I only have a couple of links to share with you today, but I think they’re important ones.
I love reposting Stefani Ruper’s words here, because she is so insightful, and offers some useable tips for “hacking” your ED. Today is no different. Here’s a link to her last week’s “Get Indignant.”
I also wanted to share with you an amazing post by a man named George Bryant. For those of you who are not familiar with the “Paleosphere,” George, aka the Civilized Caveman, is a Marine who fell into the Paleo diet and now hosts a blog full of amazing “cooking creations.”
George recently came out about his struggles with Bulimia on Abel James’ Fat Burning Man podcast, and followed it up on Stefani Ruper’s Live. Love. Eat. podcast. He then posted this blog about it. I highly encourage every one of you out there to go and read it. George is a force for good in this world–his earnestness and honesty is astounding, and his willingness to share his story is seriously special.
Anyway, that’s all I have for you on this rainy Friday morning.
[EDIT: Just realized that today is Thursday. Apparently my brain was ready for the weekend.]
Another podcast you can’t miss.
Stefani Ruper and Abel James discuss optimizing the way you feel versus optimizing the way you look.
So much awesome in one little podcast. Head over to the Fat-Burning Man website and take a listen! (Or just search for the Fat-Burning Man show on iTunes.)
(And if that’s not enough for you, check out Stefani’s Friday Food & Love Hack here!)
So, here’s what I’m going to need you all to do today:
Go to iTunes using whichever internet-receiving music-listening device you own. Download the latest Underground Wellness podcast (“Paleo* and Women’s Health” 8/1), featuring guest host Diane Sanfillipo and guest Stefani Ruper. Listen to the podcast from start to finish. Listen to it again. Then stop counting calories and go live your life.
Happy Friday, everyone.
*Even if you don’t subscribe to the Paleo lifestyle or know what it is, this podcast will help you reframe your thinking about body image and mental health in relation to food. I am so impressed with how frankly Diane and Stefani are able to discuss these issues while making them digestible (ha!) for someone who might be listening with a disordered mind. Please do me a favor and listen. It’s only an hour of your life, and I promise it’s one that you will be glad you spent.
