016: Brittany Mullins from Eating Bird Food

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having an amazing week so far. Thank you SO much for all of your incredible enthusiasm with the Fit Guides. Don’t forget to sign up before the price jumps on Friday! We’re starting the plans next Monday. <3

I didn’t get the chance to get a post ready for yesterday since Fit Guide stuff was so exciting/busy/crazy in the best way, but I’m back with a brand-new podcast episode for you! I’m so thankful for the incredible blessings this little blog has brought me, and my #1 favorite thing is the ability to connect with women all over the world + the lifelong friends this little blog has brought me. Brittany and I started blogging around the same time and she’s become a real-life friend after the blog world introduced us to each other.

I feel like Brittany is such a perfect example of Healthy In Real Life. You can tell she takes great care of herself – her hair and skin are always glowing – and she lives a balanced, sustainable lifestyle. She enjoys her life with desserts and the fun stuff, but also makes the most gorgeous salads you’ll ever see. She works out but also stresses the importance of rest and self care. She inspires and motivates her audience to love their bodies, which gets cheers from me all the livelong day. I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with Brittany a handful of times and she’s just as fun and genuine as you’d expect from reading her blog.

In this episode, we’re chatting about all the good stuff:

– How Eating Bird Food got started and when she felt like she could quit her 9-5 to pursue the blog full-time

– The biggest changes she’s seen since the OG blogging days

Hi friends! In today’s podcast episode, we’re talking about a fitness lover’s worst nightmare:

injuries… and how to deal with them.

It can be SO hard to be patient while you wait to heal. You want to make sure you’re doing everything you need to do for a full recovery and prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. Thankfully, my good friend Jessica Valant is here with tons of amazing tips for dealing with pain and injuries.

In this episode, we discuss:

– How injuries happen in the first place

– When you should use heat and when you should ice

– When is surgery necessary and when we should explore other options

– Cryotherapy (and why we’ll both never do it)

– How a healthy non-injured person can still have access to a Physical Therapist
