Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.

I get it. That is the simplicity and clarity we need when we're new to any skill.
If we're just starting piano, we can't start with chords and using both hands at once. We have to learn note by note, pluck it out finger by finger.
But eventually, if we want to get good, we have to progress. We have to learn the more advanced skills, navigate the greater complexities, until eventually we...
Tell me if you've experienced this situation before...
You're scrolling social media, and one of your favorite health coaches comes on with a really inspiring post and you think to yourself, That's it... I'm doing it.
You have a conversation with her, you hand her your credit card, and then you go to start the program and suddenly all that motivation you had when you saw that post disappears.
You don't really want to follow her suggestions, you find yourself dodging her calls, you rebel against...
We've all been there... you're so good all week, avoiding the vending machine, ordering salads for lunch, cooking healthy dinners, saying no to dessert, and then it finally arrives:
And you think to yourself...
I deserve this.
It's just one meal.
I'll get back on plan tomorrow.
This is the last time I'll have this for at least a week, better make it count.
And so you get the burger and fries. And the milkshake. And the soda. And the day is already ruined so that night you also...
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.
Yes, today's episode is all about how to jumpstart your motivation and I'm sure you're chomping at the bit to find out how to ignite that in yourself.
But before we get into the nitty gritty tips and tricks, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you this first...

That wind makes the ride a lot easier, smoother, and more enjoyable. But at...
Do you ever feel like weight loss should not be so hard?
I think the world of fad diets with all its contradictory advice has made it seem impossible to make the 'right' food choices.
Hell, if you listened to all the weight loss advice out there you wouldn't be able to eat sugar, meat, veggies, fruit, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, carbs, or fat... sooooo breatharian?
All of this confusing info has also made us hyper-focus on the things that really don't make...
Picture this: It's the weekend. All week long you've been doing so well with you're eating, getting your workouts in, doing your self care. But here you are, elbow deep in a bag of greasy potato chips, asking yourself, "Why do I keep doing this to myself?"
Or maybe your problem isn't binging on the weekends. Maybe you're sitting at a restaurant with friends and family. Everyone is having a good time, ordering delicious food and enjoying a cocktail, and you're sitting there with your dry salad and lemon...
Weight loss plateaus.
They are annoying. Frustrating. Defeating. Discouraging. And all around sucky.
They also are inevitable on any weight loss journey, so instead of fighting the unavoidable, let's understand why they happen and what you can do to get that scale moving again (without doing anything you're going to regret later).
When you start to lose weight you tend to lose it quickly because - spoiler alert - a good amount of it is water weight. Initially your body...
Calorie counting is outdated weight loss advice.
I said what I said.
Not because you don’t need a calorie deficit to lose weight, you most definitely do.
But here’s the problem with trying to count your calories (aside from the fact that it’s a pain in the ass):
It's 2022. You've decided on the meaningful resolution that's going to be your guiding light for the year, and now comes the scary part... turning that vision into your actual reality.
But how do you do it? Like really do it?

How do you stay consistent through a whole year of birthdays, holidays, weekends, happy hours, stressors, celebrations, vacations, and everything in between?
How do you navigate...
