The Healthy Lawyer is a lifestyle blog with an emphasis on balancing health, wellness, and fitness with fun. This blog follows my personal life, so you’ll find posts about living with anxiety, my personal fitness journey, life after an eating disorder, being a lawyer, raising an insane rescue dog, and my weekend adventures.

My name is Rachel, and I am a lawyer living in East Brunswick, New Jersey. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, attended college in Binghamton, New York, and then had a three-year adventure in Williamsburg, Virginia for law school.

I was a very inactive and unhealthy teenager, but as I got older, I discovered a passion for health and fitness. After hopping from restrictive diet to restrictive diet and realizing that I had become unhealthy in a totally different way from my teen years, I sought treatment for my eating disorder and body image issues, started working with a registered dietitian who specializes in intuitive eating, and am on a brighter path to a more balanced and overall more healthy life.

With The Healthy Lawyer, I hope to inspire others to live an active and healthy lifestyle in a way that respects their body and its needs, as well as their mental health. Learning to listen to and respect my body and mind has helped me gain confidence, muscle, and a positive outlook on life. I hope I can inspire someone reading this to do the same.

I am not a dietitian, I am not a fitness instructor, and I am not a therapist. Anything that I write about on this blog is just a chronicle of my own experiences, and your mileage may vary. I hope that I can inspire you to find your own version of a balanced and healthy lifestyle, but please check with a doctor before changing your fitness routine, adding new foods to your diet, or otherwise embarking on any health or fitness journey. And, of course, if you are experiencing any mental health issues, please seek professional help. Positive vibes and self-care are helpful, but they are no replacement for a mental health professional.
