Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
2020. I'm sure you can relate when I say this year has tested me like no other year has. My business struggled to stay alive as the first wave of the pandemic hit. I went through a break up. I discovered I had anxiety. I got injured. I faced new health issues like losing my hair. And that's on top of dealing with the daily stress of covid numbers, living alone, and ya know, life.
But this year I also did some massive inner healing. I began seeing a therapist. I developed a greater appreciation for all the...
We all know the new years resolution stats: 80% are ditched by February! And because of this, there's a growing skepticism around even setting a resolution.
You also have coaches (myself included) saying we shouldn't wait for a new year to set goals and reach for the things we want in life.
While that may be true, there's an undeniable shift in the air around January 1st. There's the hope of new beginnings, an anticipation of the year to come, and a beautiful projection of what life could look like 365 days...
A lot of times around the holidays we have 1 of 2 MO's when it comes to nutrition:
1: Fuck it! It's the holidays! I'm eating all the things! #treatyoself #ilovecookies #whatsaworkout? #yolo
or 2: I'm going to be good this year. I don't need that cookie. Nope, no holiday cocktail for me. S'mores? No thanks....... Fast forward to standing in front of the fridge at midnight eating every dessert in site.
This is what is properly known as the all-or-nothing mindset. And as you can see, it rarely leads to good...
Have you ever experienced this: You have a goal to lose weight. And even though reaching that goal would mean everything to you, even though you know how much more confident you would be in your relationship, even though you know you'd have more energy for your kids, even though you know how amazing it would be to feel good in your own skin again, you just can't get yourself to take action.
The days come and go and you just feel sluggish, apathetic, maybe even a little hopeless. You can't seem to hype...
If I asked you, "What's the number one thing sabotaging people's health goals?" what would you say? Eating too much sugar? Not working out? Binging on the weekends?
Want to know my answer? It's our minds. It's the stories we repeat in our heads daily. It's how hard we are on ourselves. It's our shame.
It's the excuses we give ourselves that keep us in our comfort zone, away from the action, away from the possibility of failure.
It's the beliefs we hold about who we are and what we're capable of. It's...
Raise your hand if you’re part of the clean plate club!
Raise 2 hands if you’re part of the 2 clean plates club!
I GET it. Our lifestyles are set up perfectly to turn us into total food-aholics.
Our fast-paced, over-scheduled lives have us shoveling food so fast we barely even taste it.
We’re encouraged by movies to binge food for comfort (who else has been the cliche eating a tub of ice cream after a breakup?).
And diet culture perpetuates our yoyo-ing between eating half a carrot for...
Thanksgiving. During a NORMAL year it's a minefield of stuffing, pies, and alcohol, threatening to send us down the slippery slope of holiday season fuck-it-ness.
Then 2020 came along and said, "Hold my pumpkin beer."
This season we aren't facing the desire to overindulge with the fam. We're staring down the challenge of keeping our heads (or more accurately, our waistlines) while possibly feeling extreme stress, loneliness, and grief over what we're missing out on this year.
And THAT can be a recipe...
I eat clean, count my calories, workout, and the weight still isn't coming off. What more could I possible do?
I think my metabolism is messed up, is there anything I can do to fix it?
Every time I try to lose weight I self sabotage. How do I make myself stop?!
How badly does alcohol inhibit my weight loss?
What's the best diet to lose weight?
Last month I held a live training in my private Facebook group all about how to finally break through when those extra, unwanted pounds seem to be holding on for...
What do you do when you get a craving? Do you try to control it? Shut it down with willpower? Avoid then binge? Convince yourself you don't need it (while secretly obsessing about it)?
The true secret to conquering cravings once and for all isn't in avoiding your food of choice; more often than not that just gives it more power and makes it that much worse when you finally do give in.
I know I can't be the only one who's avoided eating a cookie and ended up eating 8 cookies, a slice of cake, and a half a bag...
Between diet culture constantly telling us to eat less and move more, trends like intermittent fasting limiting the hours we can eat, and trying to include more and more plants in our diet, it can be shockingly hard to get ENOUGH calories in to lose weight.
Believe me, I know that sounds bananas and borderline like an oxymoron, but it's true. You can eat TOO LITTLE, slow down your metabolism, and bring your weight loss to a standstill.
Truth be told, the clients that come to me struggling with...
