Butternut Squash Soup with Bacon


I’ll be honest, I haven’t been on the soup wagon my whole life. I know, how horrible right? But growing up I was only exposed to chicken noodle soup, which had lots of vegetables in it. And when I was a kid, veggies were NOT my thing. AT ALL. When we had chicken noodle soup, […]

Foray into Functional Medicine


I’ve had it with ‘conventional’ medicine. I’ve had it with doctors appointments where I come prepared, knowing information about my disease, but feel like I’m more well versed than the professional. I’ve had it with no answers, or half-assed answers, or the brick wall answer of ‘we can’t do anything else about it. Live with […]

Lemons lemons everywhere…


For the past two weeks I have been in the process of doing Megan Rand, Ginger Newtrition’s Spring Detox. It was not a detox where you don’t eat, or only drink water, or juice, or starve. On the contrary my friends! It was full of flavor and food. This was a detox where you cut […]

Birthday Vaca! 


My life has been crazzyyy busy lately. Between wedding things, doctor things and just life things, my fiancé and I decided to celebrate my birthday a weekend earlier than it actually occurred this year. So last weekend he surprised me by a weekend away in Portland Maine. Neither one of us had been there before, […]

Cups and Competitions


Egg cups for my sister! Since I’ve moved home my sister has asked for some help with her eating/nutrition. She has given me ‘total control’ over her meals. This isn’t so easy, as she is still in high school and on a different meal schedule as me. So a lot of things will have to […]

New Digs


If you follow me at all, either here or on my Instagram account (follow me to the right!) you will have seen me mention that Le fiancé and I have moved. This wasn’t a move to a cute little house, in a cute little neighborhood. Or to a sweet apartment in a trendy district. It […]

My Obligatory New Years Post!


I’ve never really been one for New Years. I usually watch the ball drop and stuff, but I only tune in to watch during the last 2 minutes. For me it’s just another day, but more numbers on the calendar change than normal. So in turn, I’ve never been one for ‘resolutions’ either. I’m not […]

👉🏼Feeling stuck with your MS symptoms?
👉🏼Feeling like your body betrayed you and is working against you?
👉🏼Are you worried you’re stuck like this and will never get better?

I get it. At one point I did too.

Years ago I was experiencing “Aggressive MS” and I thought I’d never function the same.

I thought my days of moving how I wanted, or doing anything on a whim were over.

I couldn’t walk well, couldn’t feel my body correctly and I was SCARED.

But now?
I’m confident in the ways I’m helping myself.
I no longer have aggressive MS.
I can move how I want, when I want.

Because of the changes I’ve made over the years.

No, it’s not easy, but that’s where I come in!!

I’ve dedicated my life to helping those with MS realize that feeling better is possible and helping them get there.

My 2 courses and my membership are on sale this weekend for Black Friday,

want to start your own success story??

Comment SUCCESS below and I’ll send you the link!!

The first step to being successful with managing stress (& being successful with anything really) is:

Awareness of where you currently are.

You can’t change or manage what you’re not aware of.

You can only know yourself as deep as you’re awareness of yourself goes.

Try this:
Right now as you read this, pause for a sec.
Take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Where were my thoughts?
Where is my breathing?
What am I saying to myself?

Get really honest here too (warning- it might be uncomfy)

Progress is absolutely not linear.

But, it’s still progress nonetheless.

I see you if you’re in a “dip” or feel like you’re going “backwards”

You’re really not, you’re right where you should be.

Keep going!!
🧡❤️🧡

Lol, all this got me was an MS diagnosis. 

This was me basically my whole life up until a few years ago.

My clients have all talked about situations like this too.

It’s no wonder why a lot of us have an autoimmune disease now. 

Please, speak your truth. Your body will thank you.

I’ve been actively working on my nervous system for the past year or two.

That hasn’t meant that all my anxiety or depression magically vanished.

It just means that when I do find myself feeling like an anxious mess or a depressed puddle, I know how to attend to and care for myself.

Not in the goal of “fixing” per se, more honoring and accepting.

This is one of the ways I help my clients improve their MS symptoms, but attending to their nervous systems and improving their stress response and resilience.

I have so many ways to work with me.. from 1:1 support to my free community.. comment below “interested” and we’ll chat about what would be right for you!

This is exactly why I do what I do.

Because when I was suffering and going through it, I had no one. 

No one in my corner who fully understood.

Sure I had some people around me who cared.. but that’s different than understanding and being supportive.

I don’t want that for you.

I want you to feel confident,
in control of your life,
like you have someone in your corner who understands on a completely different level than those around you.

This is why I do what I do.

Because I don’t want you to feel alone.

PS- My second book is available for pre-order!!
This is a book that I would have loved to read early on in my journey. 
I teamed up with 6 other authors to detail how we moved through our diagnosis and came out the other side for the better.
(Also, 5 of the 7 authors also have MS!!)

If you pre order your copy through me before October 24th you’ll also get:
• Signed copy of Resilience Redefined
• The MS Handbook E-book
• Resilience Bookmark
• LissMS Sticker Pack

When this is a new habit.. it’s HARD!!

We encounter so many messages that say DONT take time for you, prioritize others, you must.

So.. what stands in your way of prioritizing you?

What is your hesitation when you go take a minute for yourself?

What is the guilt you feel after you actually do?

I’m planning something in a few weeks to help you with just these things.. stay tuned…

I’ve found that most all of my clients (and my past self too) would say NOPE, at least at first.

There are so many reasons we don’t value our own needs as much as others, but this is something that def has to be addressed if we want to continue to make progress with improving our health.

You matter.
Remember that.
🧡❤️

This is what came through during my meditation this morning.

I’ve been feeling so BEHIND lately..
That I’m not doing enough..
That progress isn’t happening fast enough..

But that’s a lie.
I’m right where I should be.

I needed this message today… maybe you do too?

This is how I slowly helped myself the most:
Making small changes to my life,
* Intentional awareness to my morning
* Noticing when I’m being mean to myself 
* Noticing when I’m reactive or in a state of fight or flight..

Some “small” ideas for you too:
* don’t grab your phone first thing in the morning, take some deep breaths, think about how you want your day to go
* drink an extra glass of water (bonus if it’s in the morning too)
* get up and move every hour
* say something nice to yourself when you catch yourself being mean
* step outside for a few minutes a few times a day

Small changes add up to big steps forward,
don’t get fooled by these not being “enough”,
they absolutely are. 

Wanna hear more about how Ive helped myself and my clients to lessen our MS symptoms so we feel better in our bodies?

I detail it in my chapter in Resilience Redefined.. comment “Book” and I’ll send you the link!!
