87 episodes

This show is all about YOU! Well, actually it’s all about me and how I have been navigating this crazy life. But once you start listening you will see that we are all the same. And together, we will have a one sided conversation about everything LIFE related!

Once upon a time, I was a World Cup level athlete. When I quit, I gained 85 lbs in a year, got married, got divorced a year later, hated my job, hated life and just sort of gave up and hung out at rock bottom. Then, one day, I took the bull by the horns and changed everything!

This podcast will take you through some of the emotional, mental and physical life lessons that have been presented to me over the years, and how I’ve learned, and sometimes not learned how to forgive, let go, make good decisions, be happy, move on, and ultimately LOVE every inch of my body, mind and soul.

Life is always presenting us with challenges, opportunity, and beautiful experiences. It is up to us to see them and make the best of each day.

    Nutrition, Health, Magic Mushrooms & Changing Your Life with the Nude Mushroom Tara Portelli

    Today, my guest is Tara Portelli. She has an undergraduate degree in psychology then trained and worked as a paramedic for 9 years. She suffered from PTSD and anxiety from her job. Following her intuition and heart, Tara switched her career to become a holistic nurtionist and fitness trainer and then went on a trip to Mexico that changed her life forever (which she tells us allllll about… its unreal what happens).


    Tara is an incredible inspiration and wonderful mental health advocate, and trust me… Your mind will be blasted with curiousity when you hear what she has to say!

    Thin Privilege, Fatphobia, Marginalized Bodies and Swapping Weight Loss for Health with Raffela Mancuso

    Thin Privilege, Fatphobia, Marginalized Bodies and Swapping Weight Loss for Health with Raffela Mancuso

    This episode is for anyone struggling with self worth, fat shaming, diet culture beliefs, or with the deep knowledge that there is more to life than the way we look.


    It is so important to my personal health and wellbeing to keep the discussions going about our beliefs, where we learned them and to use this platform to amplify melanated voices. 


    My guest today is Raffela Mancuso. No, she hasn’t written a book, no she is not famous, no she doesn’t have a million followers on Instagram. However, she has a powerful message that she has been speaking about for years. She came onto my radar via social media after one of her posts went viral. The premise of the post was that “Thin people are taking up the space in the body positivity/self love corner” and it called in some of the biggest influencers on Instagram to join the conversation. And guess what!? They did! Her post got over 4000 comments and skyrocketed her into “influencer status” overnight.


    Raffela identifies as being “small” fat, which we will get into later in the show, and shares her journey of living in a bigger body, the fat shaming, fatphobic tendencies of others, mental health issues, and how she is constantly labelled as unhealthy because of the size of her body.


    Today, we dive into all the stereotypes, stigmas, beliefs on swaping weight loss for health, offensive language around bigger bodies, thin privilege and so much more.

    Evolving, Expanding and Creating Space for Change

    Evolving, Expanding and Creating Space for Change

    This week is the first time I have sat in front of the mic with no real direction for the show. Our world, my world, has shifted in so many ways over the past few months and I am still marinating in what I have observed about myself and the people around me.


    I have had a rough week, and I feel it is only appropriate to address that many people in this world are in a much worse position than me. Today’s episode is primarily directed towards white people, although I'm hoping all humans on this earth can potentially benefit from hearing what I have to say. I am starting to humbly share with you my take on white privilege, and how it is important to keep the Black Lives Matter movement alive. I encourage everyone to observe their beliefs, observe their fear and resistance and begin to heal, expand and evolve in this revolution. This is only just the beginning.

    Following Your Own Beat on Self-Care, Health and Wellness with Brendan Fallis

    Following Your Own Beat on Self-Care, Health and Wellness with Brendan Fallis

    Today I am chatting with an old ski buddy of mine, Brendan Fallis. We met back in the mid 90’s, ripping moguls together at the National and International levels. We both skied for Canada together in the early 2000’s and we share in the passion for high performance sport. Following his ski career, Brendan used all of his skills as a high performance athlete and transferred them into real life city living. He moved to New York City, and began to revolutionize the DJ industry. Fast forward 10 years, add entrepreneur, thought leader, social media influenecer, YouTuber and a title I’d personally like to add--Health conscious/self love/self care GURU…Brendan Fallis has become one of the most sought after curators in the industry. Whether it is a DJ gig or partnership, Fallis is a go-to for brands around the globe because of his distinct aesthetic, digital presence and incredible taste.


    Over the last few years, Brendan has provided music for some of the most high-profile events and campaigns for clients across the spectrum such as Absolut, Audi, Balmain, Chanel, GQ, Louis Vuitton, Samsung, Taco Bell, and Viacom, among others.


    Brendan has been featured by publications such as GQ, Vogue and Men’s Health. He also has been included in “Best Dressed” lists for Vanity Fair and Mr. Porter, and was named one of the “15 Hottest Men to Follow on Instagram” by MSN.


    Most recently, Brendan started a YouTube Channel to share more long form content from his work, house and home, travels and healthy lifestyle.


    I really enjoyed reconnecting with him during this podcast and picking his brain on all things health and wellness in today’s fast paced world, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

    Old Normal vs. New Normal. How Can We Do This Better?

    Old Normal vs. New Normal. How Can We Do This Better?

    Why go back? Could this pandemic be seen as a gift? How can we live our lives better on the other side?


    Over the past 10 weeks, we have all gone through a colossal shift in our mindset. Back in March, life as we knew it changed overnight. At first, fear, panic and overwhelm took over my psyche. I experienced thoughts and emotions I have never felt before as this pandemic swept the globe. 


    But now, as I settle into a new pace of life, new rituals, and new routines, I have begun to rewire my brain and tap into my true self and true potential. I am still on the roller coaster of emotion, but this episode explains how we are all shifting as a collective and how you can continue to show up for yourself with love and compassion along the way. If you feel strange about “going back to the way it was” or you KNOW in your HEART that there is somethine bigger and better for you, you are not alone.  


    Listen and learn how to understand and accept your emotions and mental concepts around the beliefs that “normal” may be changed for the better!
