Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
My obsession with diet, exercise, and my body weight started at a very early age. I remember devouring nutrition and fitness articles in middle school. Following my mom’s workout DVDs before I was 13 years old. Analyzing the small layer of fat around my midsection in the mirrors of my dance studio at 11 years old.
And yet, I would still spend the next 10 years living in a body I hated.
No matter how obsessed I got about what exercises I should do or what diet I should follow, I just couldn’t stick with a...
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...
It's a Japanese term for 'continuous improvement' and it relies on small, incremental, consistent changes that lead to potentially massive improvement and transformation.
Both research and my own experience shows, this is by far the MOST effective strategy for long term weight loss.
How can it help with weight loss?
1. Consistently gather information until you can't ignore the facts.
2. Figure out YOUR why. Remember, an object at rest stays at rest. And an object in motion stays in motion. You need your goals to be acted on by an outside force; that's what your why is. But it has to be strong enough and powerful enough to get you moving.
3. Quit 'playing' with the idea. Draw a line in the sand and make the DECISION to change. And do whatever you have to to make that commitment real. Tell it to all your friends, post it on...

I have a confession to make.
I am an absolute, 100%, self-help junkie. And I have been this way for as long as I can remember.
I mean we're talking about buying confidence-building books in middle school while all my friends were enjoying tween magazines and vampire romance novels.
But I'll be honest, while I loved reading anything personal development I could get my hands on, it wasn't penetrating my daily life.
I would get all amped up about speaking up and being heard, and...
When I ask my new clients, "What do you need most in order to reach your goals?" the answer almost always includes the words more motivation.
Motivation has become the new cure-all for achievement. Want to lose weight? Get more motivation. Want to eat healthier? Find the motivation to. Want shinier hair? Slather some motivation on it.
And here's the thing, motivation is a wonderful thing to utilize when it's there. It gives us an extra pep in our step, a little wind under our wings, a little boost to our actions, and...
