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.

Austen on Moving and Eating Intuitively

This week I am bringing you another interview episode!

If you are someone that has been interested in intuitive movement/eating, someone that struggles with the on track/off track mentality around exercise/food, or someone that is over this whole hating your diet/exercise stuff.. THIS IS FOR YOU.

I sat down with the lovely Austen (who is seriously my soul sister) to talk about what it means to move and eat intuitively. We dig into all.of.the.things around how to listen to your body, why having “willpower” over food and exercise ultimately doesn’t work (not to mention it leaves you feeling like the life has been sucked out of you), how to choose food and movement that brings you joy, and so much more. It is a must listen if you have ever struggled with your relationship to food, your body, and exercise. It is a beautiful, raw conversation about how to trust yourself again and I am obsessed.

A little about Austen: Austen is an actor by trade, and an intuitive eater and mover by passion. She runs the Instagram blog, The Intuition Gym & Kitchen (@theintuitiongk), talking about everything from body image, body acceptance, and body love to conjuring and emboldening your body's natural cravings to eat & move in the way only it knows it needs.

UGH this episode is SO good, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
