Hi, hello, welcome!
I am Katherine Feeney and this is Nourished Boss.
I am living in beautiful Squamish BC, enjoying rock climbing and skiing, building a career, and growing this beautiful Nourished Boss platform.
The nourished boss purpose is to share what has helped me and others go from exhausted to energized & focused.
My main promise is to be completely open and honest! And what's cool is that while we may agree on several things, we likely won't agree on everything and that is OK! I always wish that each of us will do what's best for us, what works for us, and be open to holding strong opinions loosely. i.e. it's not always black and white.
I believe that supporting your body and mind with nourishing foods and vitamins is far more important than a *dream* dress size or specific weight goal.
The truth is you don't need to obsess over every bite, or feel guilty for eating a cheeseburger on a casual Tuesday to be healthy.
You don't need:
- To follow a specific diet type.
- 1,347 diet products.
- And, you definitely don't need to eat salads all the time and skip meals.
Before I understood what being healthy really meant, I was diet obsessed. Anything that was thought to be unhealthy, I avoided. I counted calories like it was my second job. Didn't partake in birthday cakes at the office. And ordered salads with dressing on the side at restaurants. I took it way too far and ended up being really unhealthy (while I was trying so hard to BE healthy..). My body was malnourished, hair falling out, and I was completely losing focus at work. I felt like I was walking around in a foggy abyss.
I was physically, mentally, and emotionally depleted.
I knew that I needed to change my relationship with food and start supporting my body and mind. That I needed to GIVE my body and mind wayyy more nourishment.
So, I studied natural nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I started caring MORE about how I felt and less about the number on the scale. The more I focused on FEELING energized, focused, and fully nourished, the less I paid attention to calories and other crap that the dieting world tries to pass off as "healthy".
More than anything, I wish to inspire you to focus more on how much energy and brain power you have rather than the label on your jeans.
That you will aim to be healthy and happy so that you can do all the things you came to do in this life time. So that you can live with more joy.
“It's never been true, not anywhere at any time, that the value of a soul, of a human spirit, is dependent on a number on a scale. We are unrepeatable beings of light and space and water who need these physical vehicles to get around. When we start defining ourselves by that which can be measured or weighed, something deep within us rebels. We don't want to EAT hot fudge sundaes as much as we want our lives to BE hot fudge sundaes. We want to come home to ourselves. (p. 174-5)”
