Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
I recently had someone reach out on Instagram asking how to manage cholesterol without using statins (a woman after my own heart trying to avoid medication whenever possible).
And while this hasn't historically been a focus of mine - hence this being my first episode on the subject - I realized I've gotten a number of clients off their cholesterol medication without that even being a specific goal!
Because spoiler alert, the advice I'm going to share with you here is the same advice I...
This Cinco De Mayo I decided to go spend some time with my big sister (a fellow holistic health coach). And as we sat and enjoyed absolutely mouthwatering gluten-and-dairy-free burritos and modified margaritas made with just tequila, lemon, lime, and lime la croix, we talked about our clients and the various ways we get them to make lasting change - ya know, typical shop talk.

Me: "Got it, here's what we've got to do..."
How do you start your morning each day?
Do you reach for your phone before your eyes fully open?
Do you throw on your make up while chugging coffee and running through your to-do list for the day?
Do you absently kiss your spouse on the way out the door?
Do you run through the drive-through because you didn’t have time to make your breakfast, again?
I’ll be honest, I used to not give much thought to my morning routine either. The morning was just a necessary pit stop between sleep and work.
