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.

    Ever have one of those sweat drenched, blood pumping, full-body, core and every single muscle utilizing, breaking all your boundaries, I can’t lift another dumbbell kind of workouts?

    And then somewhere deep inside, find it in you to tackle a HIIT routine on a machine you have never seen before in your life?

    Yesterday I was invited to train at one of the best equipped gyms in my city.  The gym was split on two floors, had the coolest cardio equipment ever (I have only seen this stuff while training in Europe) and The moment I walked in, I felt a whole new kind of inspiration.

    That’s me being polite.  The gym was a fit girl’s wet dream.

    If you have never shaken it up your routine by training at another gym, I highly recommend it.  In fact, I think it is one of the best things that you can do for yourself.  New equipment and machines will challenge you to use different muscles and although I trained on the same program that I have been using all month, I felt a greater level of intensity. Plus I trained at a different time of day and my body was like…’whassup? Ok, you wanna do this? Let’s do this.’

    Most gyms offer a free pass for your first day so gurl, grab a friend and take advantage!

    Sore does not begin to describe what’s going on for me right now…and I am loving ever minute of it!
