Do you feel like you're constantly trying to win the battle of You against You?
Sunday Night You sets an alarm to get up early to workout. Then Morning You says 'fuck that' and hits snooze until you have to get ready for work.
Motivated You makes the commitment to stop bringing junk food into the house. Then Hungry You grabs a box of cookies and a carton of ice cream at the grocery store - that bitch.
Disciplined You decides to start going to bed at 10 o'clock. Then Nighttime You hits play...
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.

It's getting close to the end of the year and around this time I always get a bit reflective. I think about what I've learned, what I've overcome, what's changed in my life, and what I want to change in my life.
And in thinking about this past year, the thing I'm most proud of and the thing that's had the biggest impact on my overall wellbeing is how much I've prioritized my relationships.
I've said yes to every opportunity to hang out with friends, I booked 7 trips to see friends and family (my...
I need to tell you something that's probably going to make you mad... I never gain weight over the holidays.
Is it because I don't let myself have any holiday treats? No.
Is it because I make myself workout an hour a day? No.
