Weekly Ways to Replenish Yourself
The kitchen is my meditation room. There I make the food that will allow me to thrive, nourish my family's health, delight friends, and hopefully inspire you to try the same. The Archives section of Replenish PDX houses the newsletters where I write about recipes, nutrition information and the wellspring of reflections that come from those kitchen meditations. With these words, my hope is to bring you deeper into the connection with food your body and your understanding of how you feel and function. This is where you get to take it all home.
Tipping the Scale!
Posted on: December 19th 2014
Whoa! Steady girl. . .
Have you ever felt like you’re eating beautifully, exercising regularly, taking care of yourself in all the ways you know how and yet still the number on the scale is tipping higher and higher each time you step on its platform?
Maybe you’ve tried several cleanses and detoxes and if you’re not starving yourself, you watch or listen to every single person around you broadcasting their weight loss successes and while, yes, you feel more clean and clear and maybe even a little less bloated, not a pound has been shed from your body?
Perhaps you hold strict rules for yourself. You’re committed to your health and to aging gracefully and indeed, you are! And yet, if you go to a party and even look at a piece of cake, it seems your waist thickens?
These are some telltale signs!
Signs of what?
Signs that it’s not just your weight that’s tipping the scale, but something deep inside your body as well.
It’s your hormones.
Whenever I’m leading a group through a program and I encounter a participant that has hit this plateau ~ no matter what their age or weight ~ I know (at least if they’re working within the parameters that I’ve constructed), that their hormones have shifted out of balance, tipped the scale, and are creating an internal environment that makes weight management an uphill battle. The worst.
And hormone havoc doesn’t just affect your metabolism. . . .
Remember puberty? (Either your own or your kids?)
There’s a lot going on in there resulting in all sorts of unusual changes and behaviors and it literally all comes down to a cacophony of shifting hormones.
But I’m not here to leave you hanging on hormonal harmony hopelessness.
Time and again I’m committed to offering you understanding and solutions. And this time it’s just in time to help you usher in the new year with the balance you may already be craving and you’ll be full-on jonesing for by the time the clock strikes midnight on the 31st (or more so the following morning)!
Let’s ring in 2015 together with some hormone talk on Saturday, January 3rd at 9am PT / 12pm ET, for a free class called:

In this 90-minute free class we’ll explore the symphony of hormones and which ones you may be overlooking in your journey to renewed health, no matter your age, your weight or you gender.
I love this stuff and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned through my research, my professional experience as well as my personal challenges learning to keep my own symphony of hormones in tune.
I’ll see you on Saturday, January 3rd at 9am PT / 12pm ET for the free class!
