*TBJ = Tips, Books, Journal Prompt

☀️ 3 Reframes for stopping food guilt

  • Nope, we are not engaging in those thoughts today! I didn’t do anything wrong.
  • It’s my choice to enjoy this food, and so I am going to do just that! 
  • Obsessing over food isn’t the life I want. I’m okay! 

☀️Instead of… Let’s Try… 

Instead of: Nobody else is eating, I shouldn’t eat either (but you’re hungry) 

Let’s Try: Ignoring my hunger has never worked for me. My body is asking for energy now, I will listen to that. 

☀️Healing is not becoming the best version of yourself. Healing is letting the worst version of yourself be loved.


Do Less by Kate Northrup

I never really understood cycle synching or what happens in different phases of my cycle until reading this book. I am not sure why this isn’t taught to us earlier, but WOW – talk about understanding your body in an entirely new way!  

Amazon Synopsis: This is a book for working women and mothers who are ready to release the culturally inherited belief that their worth is equal to their productivity, and instead create a personal and professional life that's based on presence, meaning, and joy. As opposed to focusing on “fitting it all in,” time management, and leaning in, as so many books geared at ambitious women do, this book embraces the notion that through doing less women can have–and be–more.

The addiction to busyness and the obsession with always trying to do more leads women, especially working mothers, to feel like they're always failing their families, their careers, their spouses, and themselves. This book will give women the permission and tools to change the way they approach their lives and allow them to embrace living in tune with the cyclical nature of the feminine, cutting out the extraneous busyness from their lives so they have more satisfaction and joy, and letting themselves be more often instead of doing all the time.

Do Less offers the reader a series of 14 experiments to try to see what would happen if she did less in one specific way. So, rather than approaching doing less as an entire life overhaul (which is overwhelming in and of itself), this book gives the reader bite-sized steps to try incorporating over 2 weeks!


Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score

Not going to lie; I bought this book solely because I thought the cover was cute and the synopsis sounded enticing. However, it completely exceeded my expectations. This is a thick book, but it is so engaging I couldn't put it down. The drama, the slight thriller component, the spiciness, the romance.. This had a little bit of everything. This is such a fun read; def recommend it! 

Quick Synopsis (from Amazon): Knox doesn’t tolerate drama, even when it comes in the form of a stranded runaway bride. Naomi wasn’t just running away from her wedding. She was riding to the rescue of her estranged twin to Knockemout, Virginia, a rough-around-the-edges town where disputes are settled the old-fashioned way…with fists and beer. Usually in that order.

Too bad for Naomi her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Now she’s stuck in town with no car, no job, no plan, and no home with an 11-year-old going on thirty to take care of. There’s a reason Knox doesn’t do complications or high-maintenance women, especially not the romantic ones. But since Naomi’s life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help her out of her jam. And just as soon as she stops getting into new trouble he can leave her alone and get back to his peaceful, solitary life. At least, that’s the plan until the trouble turns to real danger.
