I created "HUG" as a way of connecting with as many women as possible to share my passion for 'healthful', nourished living.
I haven't always been passionate about living a truly nourished life. In fact, I spent most of my teenage years and early adult hood in a toxic relationship with food and my body. I was over-obsessed with calories and preoccupied with filling my days exercising and 'burning them off' that I struggled to focus on anything else. It didn't matter how healthy my food was or what nourishment I was giving my body - it was all about the numbers. Plagued with body dysmorphia, crippled by my eating disorder, I came to a place where I finally thought enough is enough.
That is where my journey towards 'healthful' living began. It was a challenge, it was hard learning to love my body after almost 10 years of being under-nourished and under-loved but I knew it was what I needed to do. I was tired of not sleeping, of having bad skin and thinning hair - but most importantly I wanted to be free of all the toxic thoughts that filled my head day in, day out
Working through my eating disorder was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done - it's hard to let go of something that once defined you. At the same time, that's when I fell madly, passionately in love with the human body and living a healthy life that serves us. It showed me that with the right nourishment and self-care, our bodies are capable of so much more than we give them credit for.
“Fueling your body from a place of love can empower you to live the life you've always dreamed of and create long lasting and sustainable health changes that can transform your life. ”
I don't believe that there is a 'one size fits all' diet or way of living. We are all totally unique and that needs to be honoured - even when it comes to what we eat and how we move our bodies.
What we do have, is the power to make a change in our lives and to start taking those steps towards improved health. I am so passionate about helping you to become the most nourished version of you and that goes so far beyond just the food you eat. It's about learning to love your mind and your body, about healing your relationship with food and learning what drives you.
Everyone can live the life they dream of, we all have that power inside of us to make change. I created Her Unique Glow for YOU as your helping hand and your guide towards achieving positive, sustainable and lasting health changes. I know how challenging it can be but congratulations in taking that first step and don't worry - I'm with you every step of the way!
