I’m so used to being on my own now that most days I don’t even really notice that longing feeling for a partner. I look at my life and it’s so full of love and joy and peace. I have the most supportive family, a beautiful growing son, fun and encouraging friends, inspiring mentors, hobbies I enjoy, and a God a fully rely on. I’m full. I’m whole. And yet, there’s this deep desire that creeps up from time to time that reminds me that I was made for partnership. That at my core, I want to be the woman who creates a love and a home and a future with a man I can trust and give myself to. Someone who’s also whole on his own. Who doesn’t want to go 50/50 in a relationship but 100/100. Who has a support system of his own, goals he’s working towards,…

The comparison world that we live in today has become one of the biggest dilemmas that people are struggling with when dealing with their own inner self worth. The explosion of social media everywhere has people comparing their life with others and wondering why they can’t have what they have, even though they don’t even know them. It’s opening up a Facebook or Instagram feed and seeing a person (or family) on a wonderful vacation in a tropical island, a friend’s brand-new BMW or the most amazing kitchen you have ever seen in some persons social media feed you randomly decided to follow (maybe because they have really awesome taste in décor); for whatever reason it maybe, its detrimental to one’s growth and their own desire to live the life they want to. Comparing yourself to that person on social media (and even in real life) will not only destroy…

Welcome to The Good Curves first episode! Our month of January 2018 is all about priorities and so here we have our founders Cass and Cari discussing some important points and explaining how to go about using the free Priority Workbook that they’ve created for you! We’d love to hear your thoughts, experiences and any additional advice on the topic so chime in! In this episode, we talk about: What happens when priorities match up with purpose. The downside of doing everything or feeling obligated to do everything. How having FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) or Shiny Object Syndrome can often pull us away from our purpose and priorities. Cass shares her experience as a single mom and how she prioritises her time so that she can spend quality time with her son. How we can be easily influenced to make decisions that don’t serve us by people we care…

About this time each year, many of us resolve to be better versions of ourselves in the year ahead. It’s a lovely notion, but oftentimes these resolutions meet the crushing pace of our lives and weaken or die altogether within months—sometimes weeks—of being adopted. This year, I propose a kinder variety of resolution, a “default keep” resolution. The idea is simple. Structure your resolution so that it’s actually easier to keep than to break. Your resolution should help you grow, but for once it won’t set you up for failure (and the self-loathing that often accompanies failure). A “default keep” resolution might be omitting something from your diet that’s harmful. If you resolve to stop putting sugar into your morning coffee, for example, it’s actually one less step each day, saving you time and effort while also helping you take better care of yourself. Perhaps you’re resolved to follow…

I’ll never settle for a man. We all say it. Yet, many of us women find ourselves with either unrealistic expectations and single or… settling. Well, we aren’t really sure if we’re settling. Maybe we are just too “high maintenance” or expecting too much from someone. The truth is, many of us women are fucking confused about what settling is anymore. We go through a constant internal debate about whether we are being a bitch or whether he just ain’t good enough. Do I have personal issues I need to face or is he just not meeting my needs? Should I leave and wait for someone better to come along or am I not appreciating what I have right in front of me? What if… this is as good as it gets? Honestly, I can’t figure this shit out either… I can try though. Kinda have to for my sanity…

Not having any time or poor time management is the number 1 reason I get from women for being unable to workout or stick to a workout program. I always say that most women who need to lose weight aren’t lazy, they just don’t have the energy for it. What it really comes down to is that they don’t set their priorities to include self-care. In order to have good time management, you have to know where you’re prioritising your time. If I have to convince you that self-care is extremely worth prioritising then you need to go think about it before continuing here. If you understand how important taking care of your personal health is for your family, mental health, career, etc. I’m going to make the steps very clear for you below. Here’s the thing… while you’re performing these steps, or maybe just while reading them over, you’re…

“ ‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty,’ “ – John Keats (a poet I used to adore, back when I was a kid and knew that poetry existed) As we go about our daily lives, it’s easy to get mired in the small, countless details that come to our attention. Things like “hmmm, running out of milk,” or “laundry needs doing again,” or “hey, that driver cut me off!” I especially get lost in reviewing conversations I had at work the day before, thinking about bills, or trying to plan my day. Sometimes really big things come up, both good and bad. Someone’s getting married, having a baby, lost a job, lost a friend. That’s just life. It has its ups and downs. If you have a network of people around you, it makes the good times better and the hard times a little bit easier to bear. But there…

We are constantly told to place our focus on time in the gym and yes, though resistance training is very important, it is NOT the only movement we should be looking into. There are 3 things that come into play with how we work our body physically: Resistance training, Cardiovascular training, And Non-exercise activity thermogenesis (or NEAT for short). The first two options are popular ones and I’m sure I don’t need to explain the importance of them. Here’s an article that explains why women should lift weights à article. The third option, however, is hardly talked about and it should be focused on more. NEAT represents all the extra movement we do throughout the day. For example, when I’m tapping my boots under the table while writing this article. When I get excited about something and break down in a silly dance. When I get up to walk to…
