It won’t surprise any of you to hear that we’re as focused on our mission as ever. We’ve been exploring a few new ways to get our message — that you can’t hate yourself healthy — out to the world. and we are beyond psyched to share that we’ve got an incredible opportunity coming up this spring: A retreat with me (Kristen) and our resident coach and yogi, Alison Heilig at Hilton Head Health (aka H3)! (And don’t worry — Jenn will be Skyping in for a few sessions, too. She might be expecting twins, but she’d never miss an…

We recently partnered with Easy Spirit (who has some wicked cute and comfy shoes that were made to move in — have you seen the site lately?!) for its #MoveFor campaign. Not only are we loving the shoes (see below), but we’re also loving how they’re helping us better align with the reasons why we move — and how we make both self-care a top priority (even though we have totally different reasons and ways of going about it!).   Jenn’s #MoveFor Self-Care Tips To put it simply, I…

Chronic lower back pain … who doesn’t struggle with this? My own experience with lower back pain started when I was 19. It was not surprising to me though. I actually sort of expected it — after all, my dad had back pain for as long as I can remember. The doctors who examined me could find no structural issues in there — by all accounts, my lower back was not injured. After years of not getting any satisfying answers, it was suggested that I might have to just accept the fact that, thanks to genetics, it was simply my lot…

When training for a race, suddenly people I hardly knew — and who I definitely didn’t know were runners — started coming out of the woodwork to share their experiences. It’s a lot like the whole Facebook ads thing, where you just sooooort of think about how you could stand to buy a new bra and — BAM —…

We did an Insta story a few weeks ago on productivity. But it wasn’t the type of advice that you normally read. You know, the kind where you learn a new way to shave 30 seconds off some boring or mundane part of your day. Actually, it was kind of the opposite of that. It was more about not just slowing down, but allowing — and giving yourself permission to feel really accomplished for just being. See, we tend to put so much pressure on ourselves to GET STUFF DONE. We basically live and die by our to-do lists. And,…
