All Are Welcome in The Cocoon

Sometimes living life in a bigger body has it’s challenges!

Too often we are made to feel as though enjoying good health, practicing self-care, and a modeling a lifestyle of wellness is only for the thin, the athletic, and the fit-and-trim… but I want to let you in on a (big) little secret:

It’s just not true.

Over in The Cocoon, ALL are welcome. Together, we get to disrupt the stereotypes of what it means to be healthy, what it means to be beautiful, what it means to be sexy and strong. We have fun moving our beautifully abundant bods. We learn to love our curves, muscles, and yes, even our “jiggly jelly rolls” all while doing short, simple workouts that are actually fun. We laugh, we move, we meditate, and we learn to appreciate ourselves for what we CAN do, not beat ourselves up for what we can’t do.  It’s a paradigm shift that is empowering & transforming!

And instead of following restrictive, boring diets, I’m sharing tasty, super-simple recipes that are quick, healthy & appropriate for anyone. It’s so easy to incorporate these to your existing meal plan! Total win.

I have to be honest, I’ve LOVED creating this program and launching our first Session. I finally feel like my body and my soul are in total alignment, and my heart is full. I pretty much melt at the kind things that members have been telling me about their experience in The Cocoon, and it is confirmation to me that I did the right thing by following my dream of creating a space where ALL could feel welcome and successful in their pursuit of a healthier life.

Session 1 “live” is wrapping up this week so that I can spend time creating new content for our upcoming Sessions, but the beauty of The Cocoon is that as a member, you have 24/7 access to the videos and recipes as soon as they are posted. You can go through the material at your own pace, because life happens and sometimes you just need some flexibility in your schedule.

Here’s the signup link if you are ready to start your journey. It’s an all-inclusive annual membership for just $120 (USD), and it even comes with a FREE 10 Day Trial Membership.  Click the link  to sign up and get things started:  JOIN ME IN THE COCOON

Love, Michelle <3

Craving Good Things & The Thing About Emotional Eating

I was recently visiting with my dear friend Susan, chatting about what we are both up to and chewing on big ideas. I was enjoying a finely crafted unsweetened green tea latte, and we were remarking about how much we actually want to eat healthy foods now (with the exception of delicious, occasional French Fries, obvi)  when something she said struck me like a bolt of lightning: “Bodies don’t crave junk food, emotions do.”

Isn’t that just the absolute truth? Think about it- when you are depressed, sad, upset, angry, lonely- what do you reach for for comfort? A stiff drink or two or ten?  A pint of ice cream?  Anything edible that you can shove in your mouth in excess?  Damn. 

It’s not just the “negative” emotions that can cause us to turn to food & drink for comfort.  Do you like to celebrate good times, come on, with an over-the-top elegant meal, fine wine or Champagne? Maybe a round or two or ten of beers or martinis?  Or maybe you “treat” yourself to donuts, cupcakes, an extra slice of pie?  Damn (again)- So Busted!

Bodies don’t crave junk food, emotions do.

Before you think I’ve suddenly become a boring, tight-ass killjoy here to lecture you that what you’re eating is “bad”  and “wrong” and that I am basically better than you, well, you don’t have to worry.  I’m not better than you, and I will absolutely still enjoy sweets, Fries, and adult beverages.  I will still savor the pleasure of delicious tastes on my tongue and the smell of baked goods in my girly nostrils.  I will shamelessly eat that slice of homemade pie at the family Thanksgiving dinner and have mimosas at Christmas breakfast. Here’s the thing, though- knowledge is power, and now that I have the power to make better decisions for operating MY body, you can be sure that moving forward, I will pay more attention to what I eat and why I’m eating it.

Our bodies require GOOD things that can properly fuel and sustain us, like plenty of rest, nutritious foods, daily movement, mental stimulation, love, joy, and security.  When we are not providing these essentials for ourselves, everything inside starts to go off the rails- physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our bodily systems get out of whack, and we are actively, albeit unconsciously, putting them in a continuous panicked state of trying to adapt and adjust.  Our immune systems become weakened.  Our mental focus wanes.  We become snappy, irritable, stressed, and downright unpleasant. The longer we deprive our bodies of what they need, the more dysfunctional they inevitably become.

So, can we really fix ourselves with food? Yes, and no.  Our bodies are so much more than what we eat and what we drink; they are also what we think, what we feel, how we see ourselves and the world around us, what we dream about and what we fantasize about.  We are complex and magnificent.  We are more than sum of our parts, more than our individual experiences, more than our mistakes and victories. Eating healthier and in such a way as to support our bodies is an important key, and maybe it’s the first one that we can pick up and actually start using right away; but we must also be willing to pick up the remaining keys in order to fully enjoy our optimum health- mind, body, and soul. It really does take a holistic approach to treat the whole person.

Labels

I was just updating my About section over on my personal FB page and noticed a new (?) feature called Intro.  I actually have no idea how long that has been there. A week? 3 months? 20 minutes?  But I digress…

Anyway, I was suddenly struck by the way I was labeling myself and realized, Aha! I really do get to say whatever I want to about myself! YES!

I define myself to the world, not the other way around.

Here’s some of the (awesome!) labels I’ve chosen for myself: Just a little ray of sunshine! Occasional showers with a chance of Potty Mouth. Kaleidoscope Eyes, Stained-Glass Heart, Do-what-i-want-to Kind of Girl, Boss Lady, Support System, Social Justice Warrior, Lover & Fighter, Encouragement Entrepreneur, Author, Artist, Dreamer, DOer.

How are you defining yourself to the world?  Do you need to edit and revise your labels today?
