Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
“Energizer bunny” “sunshine girl” “enthusiastic” “perky”.
These are the words my friends use to describe me these days. But that was NOT always the case.
For years I could get 10 hours of sleep and still be dragging ass. No amount of coffee or naps could remove the dark cloud of fatigue that hung over me day in and day out.
And that fatigue robbed me of so much life, so many experiences. In college...
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.
Want to know our secret?
It was a strategy we came back to again and again: eating the same...
Do you ever want someone to just freaking tell you what to eat? What's good? What's bad? What's allowed? What's not?
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...
If you know me, you know I am not a fan of deprivation for deprivation's sake when it comes to dieting.
I don't think we should be cutting out foods willy nilly, and I certainly don't think we should cut out entire macronutrients.
However the old adage is true: one person's superfood is another person's poison. And sometimes there are certain foods that cause a reaction in our body that prevents us from looking or feeling our best.
And the only way to truly know what those foods are is through an...
Do you ever get stuck in the middle between your ideal body and your ideal lifestyle?
Like, you want to be lean, and toned, and feel good in your skin, but you also want to relax and enjoy having fun with friends and family - celebrating birthdays, holidays, and heck, making it to the weekend.
Well, this is where that all-to-common all-or-nothing thinking comes into play. We think we have to either be super strict with our food and have the body we want or we can have fun...
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...

Do you ever experience any of these symptoms? (I'm willing to place a large wager that your answer will be yes.)
Waking throughout the night
Irritability or anxiety
Borderline seems like an I'm-just-getting-older checklist, doesn't it? But just because an ailment is common or normal for you, doesn't mean it's actually normal.
So what do all of these symptoms have in common? They...
With fall around the corner and another uptick in covid cases, I thought it was about time to dedicate a podcast episode to improving your immune health.
I can tell you from experience, my immune system used to be shot.
I got bronchitis multiple times per year.
Whenever I did get sick it would linger for weeks, if not months.
And I landed myself an autoimmune disease. (I know, good times!)
These days, my Hashimoto's is in remission, I get sick maybe once per year, more often than not I can stop an...
