Sarah Romero “Fitness Made Me Infertile”

Podcast (4).png

This week on the podcast I am bringing you another guest episode. I am so excited to share my conversation with Sarah (@kiwiandcarrot) and for you all to hear her story on her recovery from HA.

In this episode Sarah talks about her fitness journey, how she thought she was doing everything right from a health standpoint. She was exercising 5-6 times a week, eating 1600-1800 calories a day, eating foods that were “clean,” and was in the normal BMI range. From the outside, everything looked great.

When Sarah went off birth control to begin her family, she discovered her body wasn’t having a natural period and was eventually diagnosed with HA. We dive into her story, what she did to get her period back and how she has redefined health for herself today. We talk about redefining identities, working through the process of gaining weight, and reestablishing trust within ourselves and with our bodies.. Because our bodies are so much smarter than we give them credit for.

A little about Sarah: Sarah Romero is a certified personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist. After recovering from hypothalamic amenorrhea and years of exercise addiction and disordered eating, she is now a strong advocate for body positivity and the anti-diet movement. She works with her mom as a food and wellness blogger for their blog, Kiwi and Carrot, as well as a contract photographer and videographer. Her and her husband just built a home together nestled up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Sandy, Utah. Sarah adores traveling with her husband and loves to spend her time outside whenever she can, rock-climbing, canyoneering, hiking and trail running.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

A Solo Episode on Weight Loss and New Year Resolutions


SEASON TWO IS FINALLY HERE! I am so excited to be back and to bring you new episodes every week. While I cannot wait to release the conversations I’ve had with my amazing guests I have decided to kick the season off with a solo episode to discuss New Year Resolutions and goal setting, specifically when it comes to health and weight loss.

It is SO common to set goals around our health and losing weight especially around this time of year. And it is also common to find ourselves a few months in feeling like we have failed or have done something wrong when we haven’t reached the goals we have set for ourselves.

In this episode, I not only provide you with tools on how to understand the why behind your resolutions but how to move away from weight loss goals and instead define what the best/highest version of you *feels like* and how to make decisions that align with those feelings.

Health is SO much more than weight loss and the best part is that we get to define what that looks like for us on an individual level. In the end, we get to decide how we want to feel and what works/doesn’t work for us on a day to day, moment by moment basis and we can do it from a place of love.

I hope you enjoy this episode!!
