one for you..... and none for Gretchen Weiners bye

On this #earthday  I’m celebrating my favorite part of it—the people on it ‍️! We are a divided WORLD and without UNITY + COMPASSION for eachother we can’t accomplish A THING. ⠀
This one goes out to Tiffany @nourishedbykale but also all of my Instagram friends and the diversity you’ve brought into my life. .
.
 Because of you, my mind has been EXPANDED. ⠀
 Because of you, our differences UNITE us, rather than tear us apart. ⠀
⠀
As a Jewish girl from NY, I grew up with almost everyone around me just. like. me 🤔same religion, same values, same traditions. Too much of a good thing isn’t good- it’s dangerous. ⠀
Tiff is a Mexican Colombian from California. The two of us come from completely different worlds and on the surface, we have NOTHING IN COMMON. Dig a lot deeper and WE HAVE EVERYTHING IN COMMON. Soul sisters⠀
MOST people run from what is foreign and judge it as “weird”. But for me, I love expanding how I think by learning about her culture/family/upbringing. I sit silently and listen. Not looking for reasons to tell her she’s wrong based on what ive been told or what the Torah/bible says. I take time to digest her words- so many concepts foreign to my “truth”. I combine her words with what I *know to be true* and create my OWN thoughts. What we’ve done is create a world  that is TOGETHER (and not because were all the same) but TOGETHER because we took time to understand eachother️So on this earth day, let’s focus NOT JUST ON OUR ACTIONS to the planet- but to those who occupy it too ‍️let’s make this environment toxic free by way of our thoughts, actions, and words. Don’t dismiss someone because they don’t speak English, look different, or because they dress different. Use it as an opporunity to grow your mind WITHOUT even traveling. That’s a perk here in America!YOU DOWN ? Happy earth day friends 🥰⠀

@kristinmcgee Delish! 😋

I LOVE my family, even more now that I live more than a 30 minute drive away . But last week, when my brother came to visit from DC, I noticed some TINGS ⠀ps. For clarification: This is a photo of his daughter my niece Ryan, not my 35 year old brother  
TING #1: pliar fingers!!! My brother is 5 years older than me and he’s been reaching his ‘pliar fingers’ toward my plate of food for as long as I can remember⠀
IT DRIVES ME NUTS is the understatement of the year⠀
While I love my bro, I do not love his fingers in my food⠀
Being around this behavior made me ANXIOUS AS F*RK⠀
It was actually pretty wild. My entire body started to revert to my childhood and my mind followed suit.⠀
I had a serious CHOICE to make.⠀
Freak out and start a fight⠀
OR⠀
Enjoy the *special time* with him⠀
Which do you think I chose? ⠀
Spoiler: only one of those is a choice, the other is a reaction ️⠀
NEW BLOG right BEFORE passover/easter: MY TOP 3 TIPS TO AVOID REVERTING TO OLD BEHAVIORS WHEN YOU’RE WITH YOUR FAMILY. Link in bio. 
Thanks for reading this one. It is such an honor to be able to share these parts of my life that lived in my head and body for so many years with you ️🥰. HAVE THE BEST HOLIDAY WEEKEND WHATEVER YOU’RE CELEBRATING!! ⠀

@thebalancedblonde this makes me happppyyy 🦋🦋

@kristinmcgee She is adorable! My brothers did the same thing to me!!!

When I studied abroad (I did semester at sea ) I saw 13 countries over 5 months. it was a once in a lifetime experience that I was crazy lucky to do. I’m honestly embarrassed to admit how many activities I opted out of because of food anxiety. It sounds ridiculous but my mind was always planning the next meal or worrying about what it would be.i always played it “safe” and as a result I missed out on once in a life time stuff. I have such sadness for my young self when I think of that. With that behind me, I try to soak up as much culture and world as I can! I push myself to do things that scare me- aka swimming in this Cenote yesterday. A Cenote is basically an underwater cave (I’m scared of fish, mildly claustrophobic, and definitely don’t like the dark). There were bats flying above our heads.By expanding what I see/ what I do I become more WHOLE ‍️. Seeing THINGS like this- structures that are millions of years old, filled with natural history shows me the magnitude of this world ⠀
I am so little within it yet I think I can control so much  ha. ⠀
I just got home and I’m feeling so good about my choices. Each one dictates who I am in this world- will you Play BIG or Play Small, it’s up to you with each choice YOU make  PS. New BLOG out tomorrow right before the holiday weekend: my top tips on how to not revert and fereaaaak out while spending time with YOUR fam. If you’re anything like me, you won’t wanna miss it. Check back tomorrow 🥰

@shutthekaleup glow so hard!

@thebalancedblonde yesss 💛💛💛 love your mind my boo

For a lot of no good reasons, I “hated” this photo.  #1 “good reason” would be hating the thick veins in my feet. Oh u know, those same veins that supply blood to my body all day long while working in conjunction with my heart ️ and major organs. Yea, I think I’m going to keep those and get the fck over it. #2 would be the shape of my tummy. Neither good nor bad, but certainly doesn’t look like all the girls at Coachella. I’ve had THE best time this trip- from the endless guac, to the salt on the rim of my margherita, I’ll take some temporary bloat for the memories thank you body for life, and thank you MIND for not getting stuck on the BS 🤘🤘it’s empowering so on that note, I challenge YOU to post an imperfect photo next time you “hate it”. #ITME

DC is the place I dropped my need for chaos 🤘//I’ve talked about it before, but as I spent some time alone today I’ve reflected about my past habits and life. I find it fascinating when you guys can relate because all my life I felt like it was “just me”. When we grow up in chaos (all relative, of course in terms of what that means to you, but that doesn’t matter because whatever chaos means to you, is real). For me, I was conditioned to know that drama follows suit of any quiet moments. So, I think that to “protect myself” from the “surprise factor”, I learned to quickly destroy moments of stillness and contentment, and turn them into destructive self sabotaging chaos. This habit bled into everything I did- namely relationships (including relationships with myself!!) It’s taken so long to realize that lulls of life can be enjoyed. Savored, really. And instead of creating the self sabotaging drama, I try to accept the highs and lows of life. There’s no need to rush those lows in effort to ‘protect ourselves’. It’s just impossible. Surrendering to stillness is pretty cool. All of this all goes on under the hood of our minds (my mind at least) but IF YOU’RE willing to pull the hood open, you’ll find some powerful insights about yourself. The question is, are you willing to do the work to see your faults and make the changes to best support yourself?  Spending a few days unwinding in Mexico now allowing stillness to seep in 🥰

@thebalancedblonde omg yes. i relate to every word 💛

I emotionally ate most of yesterday (For clarification, this was not a ‘binge” + this was not ‘mindless eating’ either) Yesterday I had emotions I could feel inside. They were harder to identify than usual. New circumstances= New feelings and discomfort 🤔I wasn’t looking for food to solve my problems, I’m aware that it doesn’t. I didn’t even derive the normal short term pleasure during the eating activity that often comes with these situations. But I kept doing it. And like you, I Kept questioning it “why am I doing this?” - out loud too. Every time I asked this question I met myself with the answer “Because you’re emotional and for you, this is better than drugs and alcohol and actual self sabotaging tools”. Evan helped me work through the kindness. When I said “I normally know how to work through emotions” he said “you’ve never experienced THIS emotion”. There was no restrictive element Involved prior to this, and there was no fear of gaining weight during. Just lots of questions I was demanding myself to answer, each time I had to work to meet myself with words to self soothe. I don’t need to give myself any answers as to WHY I’m doing it. I didn’t kill anyone. I snacked all day as a bandaid. Emotional Eating isn’t ALWAYS a problem to be solved. I think it’s SUPER helpful to define EE for you and understand this looks different on everyone.  I think it’s important to DEAL with emotions and not use food as a bandaid all the time. There’s a difference between routine LONG TERM HABITS and ISOLATED incidences.  honestly- eating emotionally was appropriate for me yesterday and I want to thank Food for being my safe outlet to put anxious energy  today, I’m stepping into my self care shoes- I’ll be walking, strength training, meditating, slowing down, feeling the raw emotions, and taking it from there. As long as there’s an end to using food to cope, the cycle doesn’t continue, and you deal with the hard stuff, I think these incidences can look like self advocacy. Sunday morning thoughts.  xx , LiLi

may your only Saturday decision be: the waffles or the stuffed ‘Dillas ?? 🥴🤯🤔🤤 @fruitive is truly the best spot in town, quality better for you ingredients that hit the spot. I’m incredibly grateful to the few restaurants I know that put love into their food. It’s love you can taste and it’s so often forgotten in the saturated “let’s make a healthy trendy restaurant” world. DC ppl, stay tuned for an event here 🤘🥰Health is MORE than a trend k, off to try and nap like a dad on a couch on a Saturday 🧟‍️

@shutthekaleup this close up got me feelin some type of way 🙏🏽

cherry blossom season came and went the pink trees in DC are now green and I can’t help but think about how many ways this mirrors life. If you never look up, you miss the beauty.  If you think things will always be perfect, you’ll be disappointed. The beautiful EBB and FLOW that comes with LOWS is evidenced by nature and season change. Post 5 days no cell phones and I guess you could say I’m feeling grounded with some extra gratitude. I’m also watching some special people in my life go through difficult times and this is yet another reminder. Day by Day. Hour by hour. Minute by minute. Appreciate it all and don’t lose a minute worrying about the future because it will arrive  whether we like it or not. Wishing you all a present, grounding, and restful weekend 🥰 photo: @joffoto xx , LiLi

going wedding dress shopping for me was fun because:⠀
 I saw it as market research to better help my clients who stress over it/get triggered ⠀
 when else do you get to try on lots of expensive dresses and have people take you seriously ?  it was an excellent challenge. So many opportunities to self destruct and as a result lose site of the big picture ️- and yet, I came out on top ⠀
I seriously had NO clue what to expect, which means lots of you may not either. So, I VLOGGED (foootage!!!!🤣) my experience of dress shopping in NYC and DC ANNNND wrote a comprehensive BLOG on tips, what to anticipate, do’s/don’ts. I cover everything from what to bring, how to conquer negative self talk, and also some money saving secrets (that I wish I knew prior 🤣). GETCHUR goodies in my bio 🤘‍️ALAS, time for me to take my 2nd cell phone break of the year. I took 7 days cell phone free in January and it was the BEST thing ever. I’m feelin it again and going with it! I’ll be back soon! Love ya all and have a great week
