Distraction. It can come in so many forms...
Your kids vying for your attention while you're trying to meal prep.
Social media as you try to dig into a good book.
An interesting tv show as you're getting ready to head to the gym.
Your partner making sexy eyes at you even though you promised yourself this was going to be study time.
Your boss asking for you to do "that one thing" while you're trying to finish the last "one thing" he asked for.
In an age where your smart phone...

Failure. Failure. Failure. I'm rolling the word around in my mouth, seeing what it tastes like.
Failure. There's such a finality to it. Failure. Such a pain to it. Failure. Shame comes to mind. Failure. Ah, there's the fear creeping in.
Failure has become the new "F" word, and in the age of perfectly polished social media channels where beautiful girls show off their beautiful lives without a hiccup or misstep insight, it can feel inevitable. And paralyzing.
Yup, you read that right. Lying. Totally lying.
Don't worry, it hasn't only been to you, it's been to myself too.
And if it makes either of us feel better, it wasn't all together intentional.
No, this was a lie born of fear, and self doubt, and uncertainty. A lie created out of social pressure, and cultural norms, and misguided advice, and fear of failure.
What's the lie?
The lie is that I'm happy spending my days talking to you allllll about what foods to eat, what diets to ignore, how to get yourself in the gym, and what...
Holy crap you guys, I got this INCREDIBLE recipe from Food Faith Fitness and it is absolutely stellar!!
If you are craving some naughty comfort food, but don't want the side of guilt, you've got to try this one out, trust me you won't be sorry.
I often get asked if I "cheat" on my diet, and if I do, how much??
Well I like to say, I don't cheat, I just eat. It's true. I don't approach my nutrition like I'm on a diet, I just eat the things that I know make me feel the best and don't bother with the stuff that makes me feel like crap.
The thing is, a lot of people seem to think that means I never get to "have fun" with my food. Quite the contrary! All it takes is a little imagination and a Google search for me to find healthier ways of including those mouth watering meals when I...
Weight loss and wellness can be confusing AF if you don't have a basic knowledge of how nutrition works, how fitness works, and how your body works.
Add in a million different "experts" confusing you further with contradictory advice, and chances are pretty good you're going to feel stuck, frozen, or like you don't know which way is up.
But the real problem is, you don't know what you don't know. So let's shine a light on where the missing pieces are, so we can fill them in and make you an expert of your own body.
Once you complete...
I don't know the last time I was this excited about a dish...
I rarely have cravings for gluten and dairy-laden dishes anymore, but this New Year's Eve I was struck with this ridiculous desire for fetuccini alfredo (a dish I probably haven't had in 15 years), and I was determined to find a recipe I could actually eat.
Guys. This recipe was so freaking good, you could've fooled me that it was the real deal! Plus it literally took less than 20 minutes to make.
And I have to tell you, the sauce was so incredible, I poured it over my...
I think we can all agree... NO ONE likes getting sick. Which is why I put together this little guide of the holistic practices I use to fight illness fast. I mean, I knocked out my sore throat in 2 days flat just a few weeks ago using this exact routine.
And here's the crazy thing, for years, when I would get sick, I would get sick for a month at a time.
It always started the same, I'd get a sore throat, the sore throat would turn into a bronchitis, the bronchitis would turn into a deep chest cough, and on...
We're nearing the end of the year, and I have to tell you... I don't love New Year's resolutions. I don't love the idea of waiting for a day to decide to change your life in a positive way. I think the second you get an idea in your head that will better your life, you should start working on it. Right the F now.
I also don't love resolutions because it sets you up for quitting. If you say you're going to workout 5 days per week the entire year, and then God forbid get sick for a week and can't, suddenly you're let off...

You might expect a post like this to be filled with the typical "you're eating too much," "your workouts aren't effective," "you aren't taking the right supplements." But honestly, in my 7 years of experience as a trainer, those have not been the true reasons for stalled (or never started) weight loss.
In this post, I'm going to outline the biggest underlying culprits preventing you from reaching your health and fitness goals, I'm going to give you some basic tools you can start using today to begin making...
