Summer is quickly approaching and with the season of bikinis and short-shorts upon us, you may be contemplating the idea of a 'cleanse' or 'detox' to tighten up those trouble zones.
Maybe you're thinking it would be good to erase some of the damage done to your body over the holidays.
Maybe you want to drop some left-over covid weight.
Maybe you're trying to get a handle on those sugar cravings before that beach vacation.
Whatever the case may be, let's talk about cleanses, detoxes, and...
Picture this: you're in your 40's and suddenly you're experiencing things you've never had to deal with before. You're getting hot when it's 62 degrees outside, your husband's chewing is suddenly making you irrationally angry, you're starting to see a tire forming around your midsection despite your daily barre class, and sleep comes in inconsistent waves that are driving you mad.
Yup, you've hit perimenopause and now you want to know what to do to slow down the clock (if not turn it back...
So you finally did it! After hemming and hawing for weeks, you finally got up the motivation to start a workout routine.

But a month later, you've only lost a pound and feel that hyped up motivation slipping through your...
It was the first week of November, 2003. I was 11 years old and had my stash of Halloween candy stuffed into the corner of my closet.
I was old enough that my mom didn't throw part of it away or moderate my intake, so I did what a lot of kids would do at one of their first chances at unlimited candy... I ate it. All of it.

Have you ever heard of the body type diet or the metabolic type diet?
Or maybe you've heard the terms 'ectomorphs', 'endomorphs', or 'mesomorphs' thrown around on social media or in your local gym.
If so, you may have some questions like one of our awesome podcast listeners did, such as: what's the actual science behind it? And is it a useful thing to know and rely on in a better health journey?
So the truth is, in the 40's a psychologist by the name of Doctor William Sheldon came up with the 3...
There's a lot of conversation (and confusion) about the first meal of the day... breakfast.
For a long time you were told never to skip it.
Now you're told to cut it out completely.
Some argue you need it to rev your metabolism for the day.

What's the truth??
Well if you know me, you probably know my answer is going to be somewhere in the middle and I'm going to say it differs from person to person (I know, I know, I can hear the groan of...
This is probably the most embarrassing story I could tell you, and believe me I never thought I would tell a soul, let alone put it out into the world in a podcast episode. But I really think we need to talk about it.

It was about a month ago, it was day one of my cycle and I was hurting... bad. I've had cramps that have made me yack before, but nothing came close to what I was experiencing...

As the pandemic winds down, you may be feeling like you're starting at square one with your health and fitness journey.
With excess stress, closed gyms, no consistent routine, the pantry 5 steps away at all times, and no one seeing us from the chest down, a lot of us struggled not to put weight on and say bye-bye to healthy habits.
