Jessica Landon was a successful Hollywood actress living a charmed & glamorous life, but it all fell apart when she spiraled into full-blown alcoholism at age 26 which led to jail, then living on the streets, weighing just 78 pounds. She lost it all, but somehow, after 9 trips to rehab, she found the will to leave alcohol behind and build a life she didn't need to escape from.
She now lives in Los Angeles with her fiancee and beautiful baby boy, and is an advocate and coach for moms in recovery.
Jess shares her powerful story with raw honesty, including the role that laughter, gratitude, and connection played in her own recovery.
Jessica and I discuss gray-area drinking, the sober curious movement, mommy wine culture, and the critical importance of community and connection for women when it comes to healing and recovery.

Why do so many resolutions fail? I answer this question and provide several options for “rethinking your resolutions” this year and setting yourself up for lasting success.
What might happen if you set goals around how you wanted to feel, instead of what you wanted to do?
Or stacked one small habit on top of another, instead of reaching for that extreme “quick fix” solution?
If you’ve made resolutions year after year, with little to no permanent results, this podcast episode is for you! Try different this year, not harder.

I'm adding a new regular feature to the podcast that I'm hoping you'll love, Ask The Coach, where I answer questions from you, the listeners.
In the first installment of “Ask The Coach”, I answer this question from Shannon, a Bite-Sized Balance listener:
“Every morning I promise myself I won’t eat sugar that day, but every night the craving hits, and I give in again. What can I do differently?”
In this short podcast episode, I explain how cravings work and provide three practical, bite-sized strategies to diffuse a craving when it hits, no matter what it is you’re craving.
