Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
“Energizer bunny” “sunshine girl” “enthusiastic” “perky”.
These are the words my friends use to describe me these days. But that was NOT always the case.
For years I could get 10 hours of sleep and still be dragging ass. No amount of coffee or naps could remove the dark cloud of fatigue that hung over me day in and day out.
And that fatigue robbed me of so much life, so many experiences. In college...
Sometimes the more you dig into nutrition studies, the more confused you become.
I could find you literally hundreds of articles proving that alcohol has health benefits as well as hundreds of articles proving that you should never have a sip of alcohol again.
Same can be said for fat, carbs, fasting, soy, dairy, grains... the debates on what's good vs evil are endless.
But one controversial drink hits a little too close to home for many of us....
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...
One of the most common symptoms women tell me they struggle with day in and day out is low energy.
And while it may seem relatively harmless - it isn't a disease, it isn't going to kill us, it's just... uncomfortable - fatigue can have a huge impact on our quality of life.
I remember back in college when my symptoms were at their peak, I could sleep for 12 hours and still be passing out in class.
I didn't want to go to parties with my friends, I didn't have the energy to be around people very...

I'm going to be real with you... personal trainer or not, I am NOT a morning workout person.
If I had to choose between waking up 20 minutes early to do a 20 minute workout, or doing a 90 minute workout after 12 pm... 90 minutes would win every time.
Nonetheless, my interest has been peaked lately. Over the years, I've heard more and more, just how beneficial it is to move your body first thing upon waking.
Being a bit of a...

I totally get your frustration, that used to be me. I could get 12 hours of sleep and still practically be holding my eyes open.
I was desperate for an answer. I was young, I ate healthier than most people my age, I exercised; there was no obvious reason for this chronic exhaustion I was facing.
I was willing...

Who here is still tired even if they get a full night’s sleep?
Who NEEDS coffee in the morning to function?
Who craves sweets in the afternoon as your energy slumps?
Believe me, I used to be right there with you...
And unfortunately, we live in a world where low energy is considered a "normal" part of adulthood, and we only ever attempt to fix the symptoms, not the root cause.
I can think of no better example than myself. I lived with chronic...
I can't tell you how many times I've been asked the question, "What's the 'best' diet??"
And I'm willing to bet, in the midst of the hailstorm of information out there, you've asked yourself that very same question.
I too have been in that spot, tearing my hair out trying to decipher truth from fiction as I hear a million different things from a million different experts.
Which is why I wanted to write today's post, to help you decipher the diet that is best for you. Because, as I've told you before, what works for one person...

It seems the ever present assumption... as you get older, you get more run down, more tired, more stressed, and there's really not much you can do about it. It's called "adulting" right?
Even I fell into this trap for a few years. It struck me early, hitting hardest in my early twenties. I constantly felt tired; I couldn't even fathom the idea of waking up without an alarm, let alone waking up feeling energized for the day ahead. I assumed, as many do, that it was just the ever growing...
