Juliet is currently residing in her the town of Blacksburg, VA where she went to college and has spent the last two years living there as a Research Technician for a medical diagnostics company.  This fall, she will be moving back to her home state of NJ to begin her PhD in Nutritional Sciences at Rutgers University, as well as to be closer to family. Juliet's story began at the end of college, in March 2010, when her desire to lose some fat turned into an all out obsession with detail, negative self talk, and ammennorhea of unidentifiable cause (which later turned out to be non-classically presented PCOS). Eventually, she competed in 2 natural female bodybuilding competitions, bringing her obsession, binge eating, and self loathing to a new level.  In October 2011, Juliet realized her behavior was not normal and set out on a path of self discovery. Though these last 8 months have not gone without many a bump in the road, through paleo eating, forgiveness, and the desire to love the life she lives, she is finally moving on the right track. Juliet has passions for lifting heavy pieces of iron in the gym, reading fantasy books, drinking black coffee, and eating. She loves to make new friends, hear new stories, and experience life in as many ways as possible. If you’d like to contact her with questions, or even just to talk about how awesome self serve frozen yogurt is, you can email her at Joob@heyjoob.com or reach out at her blog at http://www.heyjoob.com.

Episode Two: Lex Covucci

This week's guest is Alexandra Covucci.  Alexandra, who also goes by Lex, has spent the last few years on an exploration of one of the strangest, most confusing and most beautiful places she’s ever traveled: herself.  She got there by way of growing up in Concord, MA, attending the University of New Hampshire, roaming around Europe and South America, and living and working in Santiago, Chile for over a year. She now resides in Cambridge, MA, where the cafés are as plentiful as the live-music, and every different kind of person roams the streets. She has been working in Sales at Education First  for almost two years, but her true passion lies in health and well-being.  In addition to working, Lex is currently studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where she is learning a plethora of information regarding living, loving and eating. Her main focus is to eventually work with women who struggle with disordered eating and body-image, as she herself has for many years. On a more personal level, she enjoys all things active (especially biking), loves to cook, laugh, study the little nuances of people, and collect old typewriters. Her future plans include more living, more loving, more eating, and more exploring of this strange and confusing land known as herself. She also hopes to launch into Health Coaching full time in the near future in order to connect to more beautiful and amazing women around the world.  For any questions, further conversation, or just to say hello, she can be reached at lexcovucci@gmail.com.

Today's interview is with Manda Leisten, of Sioux Falls, SD.

Amanda Leisten (Manda) was born and raised in Colorado but has recently embraced Sioux Falls, South Dakota as her current home. She makes a living through American Sign Language Interpreting which is just one of her many passions. She loves spending time with family and friends, enjoys a good book, feels at peace when writing, and sings almost constantly. Much to Stefani's chagrin she also is quite fond of the color pink. Loving life and living to love is what she is most driven by and she is currently working toward the serenity of self-love. Manda, also, is a compulsive overeater and a member of Overeaters Anonymous a 12-step program geared toward helping disordered eaters find serenity through self-growth and acceptance. She is engaged to be married to Ben who, too, is a disordered eater. They enjoy cooking healthful foods together and helping each other continue to love and discover new things about themselves. Their future plans currently contain nothing but bliss and happiness because Manda is working diligently on not planning too many things; just enjoying life as it comes. Manda's most recent ambition is to help the women of the world help and love themselves as they are, which is why she is a part of this kick-ass revolution.
