In this episode, Rachel and Eric answer a reader question. The reader is hoping to manifest more abundance on her health goals and wanted to know: “what suggestions/advice you had on that because right now I’m struggling because wanting to push myself and stick to a meal plan and tracking my food, but another part of me is also exhausted of doing that and I also just want to be HEALTHY and mindful of eating while also just getting in better shape. So it’s an internal dilemma”
