Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
I have a confession to make...
I am a holistic health coach and I have always struggled with maintaining a regular meditation practice.
Even though I know the endless benefits proven by study after study (which we cover in depth in this episode).
Even though I've always had a gut feeling nudging me towards more intentional meditation.
Even though I've experienced the benefits of doing meditation-like activities like going on long walks, coloring, and yoga.
The practice of...
Last week we dove into the first 5 action steps you need to take to boost your metabolism and make weight loss easier.

If you did, you're ready to dive into part 2...
In part 1, I mentioned that restoring the glucose reserves in your muscles is a big part of your post-exercise metabolic boost. Meaning, you want to prioritize workouts that use up a lot of glucose, requiring more work from your body...
Eat less + Move More = Weight Loss!
That's what we've been told for decades, right??
Except that it isn't true... as a nation, over the past 20 years we have eaten less and moved more, and obesity is still on the rise.
Our lifestyles have been fueling metabolic dysfunction and simply dieting, counting calories, and hitting the treadmill aren't cutting it anymore.
And even if dieting does work, who wants to count calories and restrict their...
Do you ever experience any of these symptoms? (I'm willing to place a large wager that your answer will be yes.)
Waking throughout the night
Irritability or anxiety
Borderline seems like an I'm-just-getting-older checklist, doesn't it? But just because an ailment is common or normal for you, doesn't mean it's actually normal.
So what do all of these symptoms have in common? They...
With fall around the corner and another uptick in covid cases, I thought it was about time to dedicate a podcast episode to improving your immune health.
I can tell you from experience, my immune system used to be shot.
I got bronchitis multiple times per year.
Whenever I did get sick it would linger for weeks, if not months.
And I landed myself an autoimmune disease. (I know, good times!)
These days, my Hashimoto's is in remission, I get sick maybe once per year, more often than not I can stop an...
I'm going to be real with you... this is not the podcast episode I had planned for today.
Last week I wrote a fantastic guide on how to ramp up your immune system naturally as we head into fall and another covid wave.
However, when my co-host Gio and I went to record it this morning... poof! The guide was gone.
But we roll with the punches here and my girl Gio came to the rescue with a great idea while my tech guys tried to find my missing blog post.
You may have noticed that a couple of weeks...
I've said it before and I'll say it a thousand more times...
In the game of health and weight loss, your mindset will fuck you up more than a cheat day ever will.
How you speak to yourself, how you perceive setbacks, how you think about obstacles, and what you focus on is the difference between you taking another step forward or quitting.
It's the difference between you staying consistent or swinging from one extreme to another.
It's the difference between you feeling grateful when you...
This podcast/blog is alllll about getting to the actual root of stubborn weight.
Because far too many people are gaslit and shamed about their weight struggles.
They're made to feel like they need to starve themselves to get results.
Or like their body is simply broken and they'll never be able to have the body they want.
Or like they're just plain stupid and don't know how to count calories.
Well the buck stops here.
If you've truly put in the effort to not just follow diets, but to...
Does this sound like you, "I know what to eat, I know how to exercise, I just can't stick with it!"
If so, you are not alone. Consistency is probably the single biggest thing women are struggling with when they come to me, and it is the single most important thing if you want results.
But when talking about consistency, almost every woman I know says, "I just can't stay motivated long enough."
And I'm here to tell you, motivation has nothing - and I do mean nothing - to do with it.
If you've been listening to this podcast/reading this blog for a while and you like the way I think about food, healing, mindset, and life in general, I have a secret for you...
I wasn't born thinking this way.
I know, shocking. I had to learn, and practice, and stumble, and relearn, and unlearn, again and again and again.
And my greatest teachers have been the books that line my shelves (or let's be real, my audible library).
These authors have been my guides, helping me work...
