Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
For most of us, the 'new normal' we're all trying to adapt to is tough. For those who are natural-born people-pleasers... it's a freaking nightmare.
Boundaries don't exist at work anymore so you work longer hours. You're on mom/teacher duty 24/7. Your spouse may be asking you to take on more household chores. And basically everyone assumes you're home and available all the time.
With all of this going on, when you're at the beck and call of everyone around you and you feel too guilty to say no because they may...
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...
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...
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...
Have you been thinking about trying to lose weight, attempting to tone up, or trying your hand at becoming the fittest version of yourself? But...
You're nervous. You've been burned in the past, you don't want to fail again, you're afraid of the amount of work it'll take, and you aren't sure if you'll be able to maintain your results if you do finally hit your goal weight?
All I can say is, every successful client I have started exactly where you are right now. They had all the same fears, all...
So you want to lose weight, you're ready to take your fitness goals off the back burner, and kick your butt into gear. And low and behold, like an answer to your prayers, you see an ad for the newest diet that promises you'll drop 20 pounds in your first month, and all you have to do is (fill in the blank).
You've been here before. Sometimes the fill in the blank is simple and straight forward, like cutting out all added sugar. Sometimes it's gross like only drinking a concoction of lemon and cayenne...
Have you ever experienced symptoms that you couldn't explain?
Has a doctor ever prescribed you medicine to mask your symptoms without really knowing the cause?
Have you ever had the joy of dealing with adult acne, eczema, psoriasis, diarrhea, fatigue, bloating, constipation, thyroid issues, autoimmune diseases, bloating, headaches, foggy headedness, PCOS, food sensitivities, diabetes, joint pain, and/or other inflammatory conditions?
Believe it or not, it could all be pointing back to your gut. Your ...
We've all been told the rule of weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume. And while there is a lot more complexity in how different food affects your body, your metabolism, your hormones, and your health (more on that in the 'eat less/move more' bonus episode after episode 33), the general premise is true.
But for those of us who don't have the time, energy, or desire to count every morsel that touches our lips, how do we ensure we're creating that deficit?
Here are 3 proven ways to...
If you struggle staying motivated to workout regularly, I totally understand. Even as a personal trainer I struggle with this from time to time. But while we tend to preoccupy ourselves with finding motivation hacks, rarely do we take the time to figure out how we're sabotaging our motivation to begin with.
1. You're pigeonholing what it means to 'workout'.
If you say you don't like working out, chances are you have a very narrow perspective on what working out is. Getting your exercise in doesn't mean you have...
