Friendship & The Power Of Community

10802750_965600473454415_1552565609_nI have been focusing more on in person community lately. I love every moment I spend in WW-land online connecting with the amazing community we’ve got going on here, however connecting with people in person takes things to an entirely differently and totally elevated level.

This weekend you may have seen on insta that I was in Canada visiting friends, Natalie MacNeil & Ange & Gill of the Holistic Health Diary. While I’d been friends with these awesome peeps online for a while now, spending time with them in person really cemented our friendships. What’s cool about the internet is that it not only connects us but it allows us to know each other more deeply and quickly than ever before. When I met them for the first time in person this weekend, we could quickly go deep into our friendship because we already felt like we knew each other. We already knew our authentic stories, our passions, our work, and our goals just from following each other’s podcasts, videos, and social media. You can get a pretty good idea of what someone is like if you follow them for long enough and they are authentic when they share. This is all well and good but connecting in person really cements things and allows the friendship to feel real in a way virtual reality cannot.

So with that, come meet me! I’ve decided to focus on in-person events as much as online events in the upcoming year.

So starting this Sunday come hang out with me at The Dailey Method in Birmingham where I’m giving a talk on How to Stay Happy During the Holidays.

Here’s the link to sign up.

Here’s the link to sign up for that with my discount. Please use the code Katie which will give your women $15 off the $79 ticket.

Have an amazing weekend. Hope to see many of you Sunday!

PS. Another great opportunity to see me do my thing live is my yoga class every Sunday morning at 10:00 am at my yoga studio Red Lotus Yoga. I’d love to see you there. We have a great crew that comes each week to move, breathe, stretch, sweat, and even occasionally dance and sing.

EPISODE 058 | WWRADIO WITH CHRISTY HARRISON

10013817_10152334935149061_4053359121072932683_nThis is a special podcast and the first of it’s kind in WW-land for a couple reasons:
#1- It is the first podcast I have ever recorded with my guest in person instead of over Skype, which was awesome. Being together Face to Face really allows for deeper connection & an even deeper level of authenticity I think. I interviewed Christy Harrison at her apartment in Brooklyn when I was in NYC this fall.
#2- I’m interviewing the host of my favorite podcast to listen to, Food Psych, which was a great honor.
#3-Lastly, this episode is special because it is actually part two of a series. Christy had me on as the guest on Food Psych this week where I told my story with food and in this episode we continue our conversation with that focusing more on her story. So it is a two for the price of one podcast.  I am confidant you’ll love this episode and listening to Christy and I get so real with food and our tumultuous relationships with it. Christy’s podcast is so rad because it shows how connected we all are to food regardless of our history with it. She talks to everyone from comedians, to actors, to chefs about their relationship to food and weird food habits. It has showed me that I’m not alone when it comes to my weirdness around food and that most people have at least some funky food tendencies. What’s coolest about Christy is that she’s got her had in everything when it comes to food. She is not only a huge foodie with a background as a food journalist, she is also a an expert on the health and nutrition side of things as well since she is a registered dietitian and nutritionist specializing in eating disorders. I think she is delightful and I’m so thrilled to share this two part special episode with you today. Jump back to listen to us on part-one on Food Psych and this episode will be waiting for you when you return.
