Today on the show we talk with Steph Lyons a postpartum expert about the myths and the harmful information out there surrounding postpartum recovery and expectations for new moms.

She also teaches us how to start a postpartum self-care routine whether you’ve just had a baby or it’s been years since you gave birth. Steph discusses diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, and the unrealistic expectations we place on our bodies as moms.

If you’ve found yourself living with “normal” post baby issues and just chalking it up to the price of having kids, I want to offer there is another way we can approach our healing from bringing babies into the world.

I love how Steph highlights when it comes to your body, you are the expert. And you have every right to question the information out there.

Not sure if you are still struggling with postpartum issues or not? Listen in, become empowered, and debunk the lies and myths we have been told for far too long.

7 Ways to boost your happiness and live your level 10 life today

life coach for women

With all the personal development information out there we are constantly being bombarded with new information about how to live a life with purpose, but are we actually getting any closer?

I was the queen of consumption when it came to personal development. But that’s where it stopped. I’d consume. Take notes. Implement here and there. And nothing was happening.

Well, maybe not nothing, but I for sure wasn’t seeing the massive transformation I had expected.

Here’s the deal. If you want personal development to work and help you create a lifestyle change (or many), you have to work. And you have to be honest with yourself about how you’re really doing.

In my experience, we either think we are 100% nailing life and we would say 10s all across the board…or we swing to the other extreme and totally beat ourselves up.

For the rest of us, we have been so busy treating water, we don’t even know what our best life would actually look like.

Today, I am sharing with you the exact tool I use to help my clients assess where things are really at in their lives. This way they know exactly what to give their time and energy to, and what to ease up on.


Not living your level 10 life? I got you! Sign up here to schedule a free consultation. No obligation to buy, but if what you’re doing isn’t working, then maybe it’s time to try something else.

The #1 Reason Intuitive Eating Doesn’t Work

life coach for women

A couple years ago I started hearing about intuitive eating and how amazing it was. As a chronic dieter I was leery of the 10 principles of outlined in the book Intuitive Eating. Learning how to trust myself around food felt scary and honestly impossible.

We are told over and over that hunger is bad. We can’t be trusted around food–such as bread, pasta, or sweets. And we listen in an effort to build healthy habits and healthy lifestyles.

But as I’ve said before, a healthy lifestyle is about so much more than calories consumed or burned. It’s about living a full life. Experiencing health in all areas of your life and not sacrificing in any area for the sake of looking a certain way.

The idea of totally releasing food rules and learning how to listen to my body seemed far fetched at first.

In today’s episode, I share with you the number one reason Intuitive Eating doesn’t work. If you’re considering Intuitive Eating as an alternative to the next diet, listen up.

Dismantling modern day racism in the healthy and beauty industry

Dismantling modern day racism in the healthy and beauty industry



For many of us, racism seems like a thing of the past, like something that ‘used’ to happen. In this week’s show I sit down to talk with a fitness influencer on her experiences with racism and how she is dismantling modern day racism in the health and beauty industry starting in her own home.

There is a common attitude that if it doesn’t happen to me, it’s just not happening–sadly, this was exactly my same mindset until recently. That’s simply not true. With the killing of George Floyd earlier this year we as a nation have seen just how much racism still exists in The Land of The Free.

Mari also opens up about how she is raising the next generation of fierce young girls to love their bodies and their skin no matter the shade or size.
