evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Today I am celebrating the story of my teammate and friend Theresa Lopetrone (The Fame) who’s success story is featured in Oxygen Magazine’s Abs Special Issue.  
I hold this woman in the highest regard.  
Theresa is special to me in many ways and although we have not been in one another’s lives for long, she saw something special in me that I had forgotten about - and not only reminded me of it but encouraged me to share it with others, to share my story, in the hopes that my experiences would benefit others. Thanks to her inspiration, guidance and leadership, I started my own blog and owe so much of my success to her.  
Although our journeys have been very different, I am so grateful to Theresa for her constant support and compassion.  She is a true fitness inspiration and someone who truly walks the walk.  
Congratulations Theresa on this monumental milestone in your fitness career!
