Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
If you've been following the Life Unleashed Podcast for any length of time, you know we NERD OUT on personal development.
But what if you just aren't the self-help reading, journal writing, self therapizing type? Does that mean you can't create meaningful transformation in your life?
Absolutely not. And to prove it to you, I brought on a special guest this week, my friend Doug Fore. He is not a nutrition expert, he is not a personal trainer, he is not a coach of any kind, a book author or a public speaker. In fact, in his...
Have you ever gone full bore into a new diet and you’re so excited about how your body is responding that you don’t think about what will come after the 30, 60, or 90 day plan?
Then that fateful day arrives and all at once you’re filled with so much pride for completing it, yet so much dread for not knowing what the fuck to do next.
This is hard even if you’ve been following a relatively balanced diet plan, but it’s amplified 10000x more when you’ve been severely restricting and you...
I was chatting with a girl on a Facebook forum the other day who was half way through her Whole30 journey and ready to throw in the towel. She WAS seeing results, but she was just truly burned out.
She was bored of her meals, she was tired of thinking so hard about her food choices, and she just couldn’t seem to get that spark back. The constant mantra in her head was, ‘ugh, 15 more days of this.’
I think we’ve all been there right? I know I have. And the real problem with being in...
If there’s one word that can describe the recent weeks of quarantine living, it’s melancholy. I’ve felt it and I know you probably have too. Not knowing how long this new normal will last is daunting, we’ve organized our homes, made the sourdough, re-watched entire series, and still, here we sit. Bored, frustrated, and feeling less and less motivated to do much of anything.
So what do you do from here, when getting off the couch feels like a chore in and of itself? How are you expected...
In my early years of hypothyroidism, before I was even aware I had Hashimoto’s, I hated my body. I despised the little ring of fat around my tummy, my soft arms, and the stretch marks starting to form on my inner thighs.
But I’m no victim, I wasn’t going to just stand there and let my thyroid dictate what I looked like. So I got to work. 2-a-day workouts were my norm, combining strength and cardio to burn off every bit of fat I could. I treated carbs like they were the enemy, waiting for me to...
My obsession with diet, exercise, and my body weight started at a very early age. I remember devouring nutrition and fitness articles in middle school. Following my mom’s workout DVDs before I was 13 years old. Analyzing the small layer of fat around my midsection in the mirrors of my dance studio at 11 years old.
And yet, I would still spend the next 10 years living in a body I hated.
No matter how obsessed I got about what exercises I should do or what diet I should follow, I just couldn’t stick with a...
I’m going to be straight with you. When my family and I vacation, it has historically been 100% food-centered. Everything we do is planned around what restaurants we’re going to hit, what delectable meals we’re going to enjoy, what desserts we’ll indulge in.
And when we aren’t eating, we’re really just killing time until the next meal comes around.
Can you relate?
And here’s the thing, as your coach, I’m not about to tell you to skip the NY pizza for a salad. Or to...
It's a Japanese term for 'continuous improvement' and it relies on small, incremental, consistent changes that lead to potentially massive improvement and transformation.
Both research and my own experience shows, this is by far the MOST effective strategy for long term weight loss.
How can it help with weight loss?
This week, I hopped on a call with a woman who I'm guessing you may relate to. She was frustrated by a sudden weight gain after having maintained her weight for 7 years. And it seemed no matter how hard she tried, nothing was working to get it back off.
She went from fasting for 18 hours per day to fasting 21 hours per day (and felt like shit while not dropping an ounce). She was working out hard 6 days per week. She was only eating 500-600 calories per day. She felt like it was hopeless, like she...
No matter what I do I can't lose weight.
Why am I such a failure?
My body hates me.
I hate my body.
This is impossible.
Do any of these sound familiar to you? If they do, you may be putting up a block to your weight loss goals more powerful than any cheat day or skipped workout.
Think that sounds woo woo af? It's not. It's actually well documented that our thoughts can affect our physiology, sometimes instantaneously.
For example, people with multiple personality disorders...
