Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
We all have what I call ‘sprint seasons’ in our life where it doesn’t matter how good we are with time management, our days are just utterly packed.
And during those times it can feel like the ONLY option is to completely let go of the reigns on our healthy habits. That’s usually when we start to skip meals, hit the drive through, or shovel a handful of goldfish crackers down our throats and call it ‘lunch’.
But losing weight and keeping it off can’t be about only...
For most of us, the 'new normal' we're all trying to adapt to is tough. For those who are natural-born people-pleasers... it's a freaking nightmare.
Boundaries don't exist at work anymore so you work longer hours. You're on mom/teacher duty 24/7. Your spouse may be asking you to take on more household chores. And basically everyone assumes you're home and available all the time.
With all of this going on, when you're at the beck and call of everyone around you and you feel too guilty to say no because they may...
With the kids at home, businesses shutting down, and days and weeks blurring together, a routine may feel hard to come by.
But creating and sticking with a regular routine could be the best medicine amidst the chaos.
Here are 3 approaches to try.
1. Themed Days: Make each day centered around one type of task.
If you struggle staying motivated to workout regularly, I totally understand. Even as a personal trainer I struggle with this from time to time. But while we tend to preoccupy ourselves with finding motivation hacks, rarely do we take the time to figure out how we're sabotaging our motivation to begin with.
1. You're pigeonholing what it means to 'workout'.
If you say you don't like working out, chances are you have a very narrow perspective on what working out is. Getting your exercise in doesn't mean you have...
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'm going to be real with you... personal trainer or not, I am NOT a morning workout person.
If I had to choose between waking up 20 minutes early to do a 20 minute workout, or doing a 90 minute workout after 12 pm... 90 minutes would win every time.
Nonetheless, my interest has been peaked lately. Over the years, I've heard more and more, just how beneficial it is to move your body first thing upon waking.
Being a bit of a...
If you listened to last week's podcast episode, you'll remember my girl Gio's woeful complaints about her tendency to stop reaching for her goals once she got 80% of the way there.
In other words, if she were running a marathon, she'd get to mile 20 on the track, stop and say, "Good enough!" And head on home.
But the problem is, she doesn't genuinely feel like it's good enough. After she gets off the track, she beats herself up, feeling like a failure and wondering why on earth she couldn't just...
