Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Carly Newberg and I’m a 23-year-old foodie who grew up in the wonderful NW of the United States. I spent four years calling Portland, Oregon my home while in school earning a BS in Applied Health and Fitness and Communications. After graduation, I headed east to Baker City, OR to spend time with family while resting and practicing stillness.
During my weeks, I work at a physical therapy clinic and teach a Sleepy Stretch class on Tuesdays, while my weekends are usually dedicated to writing. I’m currently working with a story coach and hope to have my book published in the summer of 2020! It’s a non-fiction read (part memoir, part motivational book) titled Good Enough. It it, I share my story of transformation through messages of faith, forgiveness, and trusting in the unknown.
I’m a lover of many things including Jesus, writing, coffee, dark chocolate, blue skies and ocean waves. I hope to one day make it back to Australia, where I lived for a short time, and to continue traveling and spreading the love of God, by sharing with others all that He has done (and is still doing) in my life!
I started this platform to cultivate a space where I could not only share tasty recipes and treats but where I could share also, my own personal journey of health and wellness. On my website, you will hear me talk about my battle with anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and exercise addiction, what caused my eating disorder behaviors to onset, all that has helped me during my recovery, and the things I still struggle with on a daily basis. I welcome a shame-free, guilt-free environment and I’m a big advocate of yoga, intuitive eating, body love, and self-acceptance.
I believe in beauty for ourselves, for others, and for our world. It’s God’s grace and compassion that continue to soften my heart and remind me how important each of these things are. Over the last two years, I’ve begun to find a true sense of freedom and healing through both vulnerability and shared experiences with other women, and I would ask you to please take this as an invitation to join me along the rest of my journey so that together, we can learn what it means to take up space in this world and feel comfortable while doing it.
All my blessings and love,
