In today's solo episode I share my take on Covid-19. First and foremost, thank you to EVERYONE who's on the front lines and doing the hard work to keep everyone around the globe safe. This is a wild time to say the least and I hope this episode brings you comfort.    I get into why I think now is NOT the time to put pressure on yourself to be the best version of yourself. I know, it's against what a lot people are saying in my industry but I stand by this statement whole heartedly. We're grieving, we're going through a lot. So to put added pressure on top of so many unknowns is unnecessary to say the least.    I share the roller coaster of emotions I've been on since we've been sheltering in place. I peel back the curtain and reveal what's really been happening in Chez Cebulka. The screaming, the meltdowns, the dancing, the creativity and every thing in between. It has been hard and beautiful.    I also do something I never do, which is open up about an argument I had with my hubby during this pandemic and why I'm glad it happened. Once we made up, we realized it pointed us toward the solution we were both looking for. Better communication and a schedule that's helping us stay sane.    I also give you that's so freaking helpful for you to take care of your own needs and be able to give back to your family and community the way you really want to (with as much ease as possible.)    There's one question I want you to ask yourself every few days and I'd love to hear what your answers are.    We're all in this together. Please ask for help when you need it. Lean on your community. BE vulnerable. Stay Home. Take precious care of yourself and your loved ones. Whenever you can, show up and give back to your community. This is what will help us through these wild times, making us stronger and more connected than ever before.    Get the free PDF I mentioned right here.   Find out of more about Passionately Free here.

Ready For Reset?!


In today's solo episode, I share the behind the scenes of my Renew Retreat. If you need a freakin' break from doing everything for everyone else but yourself, listen up.  Renew is a fun and transformative experience - where you unplug from your daily life so you can rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. I share how to know if this retreat is right for you and what each day looks like; down to the loose schedule that creates the most chill and empowering vibe for the whole weekend.    I reveal the 4 non negotiable rules of the retreat which encourages everyone to show up as their authentic self, be really honest, no gossip allowed and how to honor the heck out of their needs. If you need a nap, take the damn nap, no apologies, no FOMO, this about you taking care of you, Mama - that's the whole point.    Each person who attends gets a 1:1 coaching session with me. Most people used that do a PSYCH-K session. What the heck is that? thought you'd never ask. It's a spiritual process that gives psychological benefits. I share how it works during this episode.    The retreat is truly for anyone who wants to press the reset button from the inside out.  Mind.body.spirit. so when you return home you truly feel RENEWED.  Not to mention it's the most supportive, loving, open minded group of women.  Ready to join us? there's only 3 spots left, click here
ATTENTION: This episode contains content about mental health. If you are struggling with an eating disorder, this may be triggering.  Please contact a mental health professional to seek help.   Today's Solo episode is a follow up to the Ending the War With Our Body episode. Many of you have asked how I I actually create lasting changes with my relationship to food, exercise and my body. I decide to break its dowwwwwn. I took the deep dive and give you my "How To'. I walk you through a timeline of how awful it got at my lowest point. What is was like to spend months at a mental institution and how I eventually turned the beat around, once and for all. I looked at my healing process like a freakin' college education. I didn't take it lightly and it took a lot of work, but I'm proud to say I'm fully healed and have been for 15 years. Overcoming anorexia was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I realized in the process that we as human beings are stronger than we ever could've imagined and showing up is the most important part of our journey. We just need to keep showing up every day.  I believe we all have the ability to heal and I hope the practices I share are helpful for you. I give you the exact step by step that inspired me to fully transform the way I approach exercise, how I fell in love with food and my body, yet most importantly, how I fell in love with me. It was a long journey and I think there's a million different ways to arrive at healing. This was what worked for me. If you dig this episode, please share it with anyone who's struggling with body, food or weight issues.  As always I love hearing from you, so take a screen shot of this episode and share on Instagram the nuggets of wisdom you took away from today's show (make sure to tag me @ashcebulka.)

In this emotional episode I share my crazy journey with body image, Anorexia and how I’ve come to love my body. I put it all out there, including stories I thought I'd never share publicly. This is a intimate conversation between me and you about how we, as women, have a resonsibility to stop the war with our bodies. Not just for ourselves but for every girl watching us. If you've struggled with body image, disordered eating, or quite frankly are a woman in today's society that's had any number of challenges with your body - this is for you - this is for all of us.    It's time to call BS on the lies women have been told about their worth & their bodies.There's so many beliefs that have been passed down for so damn long, we don't even think to question them. I share why I believe no matter what's happened in your past, what stories you tell yourself about how need to look like or the size jeans you need to wear to feel good enough or the programming you received about the definition of beauty - no matter what - you can come to love the body you're in. I get super fired up about why we need to change the body image narrative once and for all. While giving you practical tools and ways you can jump start your very own body love revolution right now. I believe when we decide to change the relationship we have with our body, we change our entire life. If I can do it, I know you can too.    Please share this episode with friends, family and anyone who you think can relate  and share with friends who inspire you to love your body & yourself.    If you're ready to kick back and Renew with us in Charleston this month for The Renew Retreat click this link to join us     If you want to find out more about Passionately Free, the program I mentioned during this episode check it out here --->
WARNING: This might make you uncomfortable. In this first solo episode, I get straight to the point about how I want you strip down and let go of one of the most pervasive and total BS lies you've been told. Perfectionism. I'm no stranger to it and my guess is, you know a thing or two about how striving for perfect - can actually be paralyzing.   I break down how we started believing in perfectionism in the first place. I get real about what happens when we try to do it all. While falling for the belief that we have it have our whole life figured out. (there's a nugget in there for you.)    I share the many reasons why the big P is one of the biggest road blocks holding you back from creating the experiences you really want in life.    Whether it's finally stopping the war with your body or taking the risk to launch your dream career or being vulnerable in your realtionships  I share what can happen when you drop that dangerous label. Whatever the story is, you don't have to live with that intense pressure driving your daily decisions anymore. There's so much freedom, ease and fun waiting for you on the other side of perfectionism.    I say a few things that might really piss you off, but I want to help stop hiding behind the excuses of this belief  - "being a perfectionist" - once and for all.    I share 3 action steps you can take, starting today, in order feel way more at ease in your skin, be more light hearted, have fun making decisions and enjoy the life you're creating - one choice at a time.    Ready to kick back with us at the Renew Retreat?
