In this episode, I bring on my co-founder of The Real Diet Story Project, Roni Davis. It's an audio recording of an Instagram Live Roni and I did on our Real Diet Story Projects Instagram page (that we co-founded together). The Real Diet story's mission is to dismantle diet culture and its long term harmful affects in our society, by sharing REAL stories.
On today's episode, we are focusing on navigating our body changes - in our wardrobe.

Maybe your body has changed coming out of the pandemic...

Maybe you avoid dressing rooms or your closet like the plague...

Maybe the clothes you want to wear no longer fit...

Maybe clothes in general triggers shame, guilt or frustration...

Then this episode is for you.

In this episode, I share 5 ways to prepare yourself when trying on clothes for a more positive and gentler experience.

So...I hired a sex coach. I've been having sex for decades and it took me this long to finally dive deeper into intimacy, my own pleasure and desire. It does NOT mean that I am broken, that I don't like sex, that my sex life is broken or that my relationship with my husband is broken.
I grew up in a time where sex was not talked about. I did not grow up in a sex positive community or culture and it has impacted me on a deep level. I know that I am not alone.
So today, I bring on my sex coach Serena Haines to talk about how to foster a deeper intimacy with ourselves.

Jaclyn also shares about her struggles of pursuing her career, co-parenting and realizing she had surrounded herself with toxic people and a...

Mini Disruptions #1 - Your appearance is not the currency of your worth

Duration: 9 min

I am trying something new today on the podcast.

I am sharing my first episode in what I am going to call my "mini disruptions" (I may change this, haha!) I will use them to dive in deeper on a certain topic, thought or idea that has been percolating in my brain. So, here goes the first one on the idea that "your appearance is not the currency of your worth".

In a society that values beauty, youth and thinness. There’s really only a few who get to benefit from it. And even if you do, it’s still fleeting. So we get stuck in a never ending pursuit of chasing flawless skin, a thinner body or hiding the natural aging process by any means necessary. Even if it makes you miserable and unhappy. 

You think that it’s the price of admission to acceptance, validation or self-worth.

So many base their self worth on:

  • The size of their body
  • Lack of...

Navigating body changes in your wardrobe



Are you starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel yet where you live?


Does life seem to be returning to a new normal yet?


Maybe you are heading back to an office or are starting to leave the house more frequently. This means that if you have been living in your loungewear for the past year, you might want to start branching out again.


This might mean that you will be looking at the clothes hanging in your closet for the past year.


It might mean that it's getting warmer where you live and have to try on last years shorts or swimsuits.


If you're like the most of us, your body might have changed while it was surviving a pandemic. And yes, your body might have needed to change while it was keeping you alive and managing stress the past year.


This can be frustrating and triggering for some. Let's get real...for many.


Me included!


It's frustrating when your clothes no longer fit!


For many, trying on clothes...

In this episode, I bring on my best friend and past podcast guest (S1 Ep:3) who is also named Amanda back onto the podcast to drink some gin with me and to me  20 personal questions!

I did not know the questions ahead of time.

Before we dive into the questions, my guest Amanda and I do a deep dive into her new found joy in Tiktok and how she found a community of people (the "new coming out" lesbians community) that she can relate to. It's helped her to learn more about the community and herself as a late coming out lesbian.

Then we dive into the 20 questions.

I share what I've learned about being a wife, my biggest fears, my biggest...
