How to become confident in your body
WITHOUT wasting time obsessing over food! 


Welcome to 10 days of empowered eating!

The number one reason people don’t set New Year’s Resolutions is that they don’t want to fail. I asked you on day one of this series to look at your values and check out how they align with your faith. Today I want to take that a step a bit further, to set action-oriented goals, and create a fail-proof plan for your resolutions. There are four components of this:

1. Set a SMART goal

This means setting a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relatable to your values, and Time-oriented. For example: Instead of saying “I want to eat healthier” turn this into a SMART goal to help you map out your steps to get here. “I will eat 5 servings of fruits/veggies 6 days per week by adding color to every meal and snack and planning my meals for the

2. Find Accountability

Who is your accountability buddy? Research shows that adding accountability to your goal setting increases the odds you will stick to your goal to 90%!!! Do you have a friend or family member who will check in on you? Better yet, come hang out with us in Next Level Nutrition! We are kicking off our next group coaching mastermind in the third week of January where it is all about accountability. Details can be found at

3. Talk about the work, not the goal

Research shows that telling people your goal actually decreases the likelihood that you will do it. This is because talking about the goal gives you a sense of accomplishment like the work is already done… when in reality there is work to be done!

4. Have a little faith in your journey

There is no deadline, no failure… rather we have faith that God has us right where He wants us and will get us to where we need to be.

What is your SMART goal?

Who is your accountability buddy?

Most importantly, where can you lean into faith along the way?


As we kick off 2023, we are building our skills strong to stand on the empowered eating platform. I know the fear of failure is real, and trusting the process doesn’t come easy- combine this with all the sparkly new diets that make their way to our socials and the headlines… it is confusing and overwhelming!

I am so glad you are here! I’m Jess, dietitian, wifey, boy mom, and total science and nutrition research junkie. I ask a lot of my body, I don’t have the option to mistreat it mentally or physically. I want to invite you to the Empowered Eating Club where we make values-based, faith-led health goals and create a partnership with food that pairs biofeedback (a fancy word for what your body says about the food you eat) and nutrition science.

Are you ready for this year to be your breakthrough year? I am so excited to cheer you on! For more support check out my resources at or better yet, come and join the Next Level Nutrition group! We are kicking off our next group coaching mastermind in the third week of January. Details can be found at

As for today, I am so glad you are here. I pray today’s tip helps you say NO to the lies that are thrown your way, and YES to the awesome that you are. Grab your coffee, pop in your AirPods, and let’s grow together with today’s Empowered Eating Tip…

Cheers, and happy eating!
