S6 Ep 5: Choosing

Permission vs. Pressure

We’re joined by my previous client (and longtime hometown friend!) Chelsea Krueger in this episode. Chelsea shares her journey of outgrowing the grind in her relationship with her body.


🌱 In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • About the pressure Chelsea felt around what she ate and how she exercised when she was in the grind.
  • How looking to external sources for “the rules” created more stress and burnout.
  • What the grind felt like.
  • A reminder that outgrowing the grind is a journey and not a destination.
  • How Chelsea is outgrowing the Body and Wellness grind by tuning in and trusting herself more. 
  • How permission won’t come from someone else (as much as we wish it would!)
  • Chelsea’s many sources of support along the journey - and what her trainer, dance class, and coaching with me has helped her realize.
  • The role that compassion plays in giving ourselves permission.
  • A serendipitous story about a tropical photoshoot and Chelsea’s decision to choose permission over pressure in a way that honors her body exactly as it is.
  • Chelsea’s advice for women in the Body and Wellness grind.
  • Your reflection question: how can you honor your body right now, exactly as it is?
