As much as I hate to admit it, turning 40 was tough. Every year I celebrate by turning the whole month of July into #Audrika, cutting down my workload and increasing my fun factor. My 38th (here and here) was a very typical example of how I’ve embraced celebrating my birthdays. But I wonder… 40… is this a mid-life crises?

You deserve to live a life free of obsessive cravings, in a body that’s healthy and fit. When your body is functioning at it’s best, you can shine your light in the world brighter than ever before… you can show up in a more authentic, fuller, and vibrant way to your life.

This is about getting healthy and experiencing happiness from the inside out.

I am that emotional eater. I so desire to change that because I DO NOT want to hand that down to my daughter. I also realized that I too needed to deal with working on my emotions and hurt that I have been hiding with food all my life. My husband and baby deserve my best, so thank you for helping me get rid of all of this baggage I carry and surrender it.
