Health and Wellness Just Got Real

We’re all for namaste, unicorns and rainbows. But sometimes, the health and wellness journey feels like anything but “peace and blessings.” It can be uncomfortable and painful, challenging and intimidating. It can make you question yourself and wonder if making it to the finish line is even a real possibility.

It can be so damned disrespectful. 

Instead of denying or feeling bad about it, The Covet Retreat is, in part, about creating an authentic health and wellness journey— one that welcomes dirty words, because, why not? (The process of self care and weight loss and mental health can be messy, so why not let our words reflect that?) Our program invites you to establish your goals, articulate your whys and shamelessly own that you’re the “shit”--because you are. And in a world that often shames people for being fat or black or women, you can’t be celebrated enough. Our mission is to make you fall in love with yourself over and over again way before you reach your finish lines because, in the words of Toni Morrison, “You are your best thing.” The best version of you is who you’re coveting, and we want to help you get there.

Putting a Little Sass and Edge on Health and Wellness

Harlow is a boss. In all aspects of her life, she leads, and she leads well. She runs a successful company; her children adore her; she is building wealth, allowing her to make a financial difference in her extended family and community. She’s extraordinary.

And yet, she struggles with her health and wellness journey.

Somewhere between managing racism, sexism and fatphobia, she finds comfort in eating. Tired of being one of a few (if that many) people of color in her workout classes and tired of showing up to music that doesn’t inspire her, she started walking. But then, the isolation kicked in.

On top of all this, while the world reveres her, she struggles to find the beauty in herself, and questions her self worth, wondering “Why can’t I ‘get right’?” She yearns for the day that she can look in the mirror and become proud of what she sees.

We get it. That’s why we created Covet: The “Disrespectful” Health and Wellness Retreat.

  • Spend four days with other powerhouse women who understand that their professional success is tied to their health and wellness goals
  • Be part of a movement that believes Audre Lorde when she said that self care is a revolutionary act
  • Create a sisterhood around your health and wellness journey
  • Spend time focused on designing a plan to become the best version of yourself
  • Be among the first to join a health and wellness experience like no other
  • Begin the work of having a transformative experience in your mind that will lead to a lifestyle rooted in health and wellness


My hope is that this retreat will bolster your success as you move closer to “snatching” that waistline, growing in self confidence and improving your mental health. You deserve to be the best version of you.

I created this virtual retreat for three reasons:

  • To help prepare your mind for the work that happens in the journal
  • To put you in community with other women on a similar journey
  • To help you establish a foundation that can keep you grounded over the next 12 weeks

My hope is that this retreat will bolster your success as you move closer to “snatching” that waistline, growing in self confidence and/or improving your mental health. You deserve to be the best version of yourself.
