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.

    Congratulations Coach and Team Blessed Bodies!
I wanted to send a huge congratulations to my incredible coach Fatima Leite Kusch and my lovely teammates who are in this month’s issue of Fit & Firm Magazine October 2012 pg. 112-115!
This group of amazing ladies have taken what is known as a competitive sport, and turned it into a team sport.  I have watched each of these women blossom since I joined the team in April 2011, and have had the honour of experiencing my own powerful transformation under the guidance of my coach with the support and encouragement of my teammates.
This year, was a big year for our team:  Blessed Bodies won two PRO cards and both my coach, and teammate Theresa Lopetrone WBFF PRO were featured in Oxygen Magazine, which was a dream come true for them both.
As a non-competing member of the team, I was featured in this month’s special issue of Oxygen Magazine’s Off The Couch as well as in the Yoga Magazine. 
In addition, there were so many goals achieved on  professional and personal levels for all of the ladies on the team whether they were competing or not.
The beautiful, strong women featured in this image are:

Congratulations again ladies on all of your success.  This image perfectly sums it all up <3
