Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
I wanted to spend the last couple of weeks preparing you to be successful with your new year's resolutions.
But before we launch into the next 12 months of learning and growing together, I wanted to pause and take a look back at 2021, and share with you some of the most important lessons I've learned.
These are the tools, the realizations, the perspective shifts that were born of a year of therapy, a year of researching, and a year of trying a new approach to a lot of areas of my life.
I hope this...
OK so I know New Years resolutions have gotten a bad rap over the years, especially if they are directed at weight loss goals.
The statics aren't in your favor and you have likely experienced the disappointment of falling off the wagon come mid-February multiple times over.
But I have to be honest, I'm out here rooting for us to bring the new year's resolution back!
It's a fresh start, a new beginning, an opportunity unlike any other throughout the year to reflect on what you really want and make a sweeping...
Raise your hand if this has happened to you...
You head into the holidays intent on maintaining the healthy habits you've been working on over the last 9 months.
You know how to make healthier treats, you've been practicing moderation, and you're excited to finally make it to the New Year without an extra 10 pounds of fluff around your midsection.
And then... you visit your family.
You walk in the door and before you've set your suitcase down your mom is pinching the skin on your hips asking if...
2020. I'm sure you can relate when I say this year has tested me like no other year has. My business struggled to stay alive as the first wave of the pandemic hit. I went through a break up. I discovered I had anxiety. I got injured. I faced new health issues like losing my hair. And that's on top of dealing with the daily stress of covid numbers, living alone, and ya know, life.
But this year I also did some massive inner healing. I began seeing a therapist. I developed a greater appreciation for all the...
If there’s one word that can describe the recent weeks of quarantine living, it’s melancholy. I’ve felt it and I know you probably have too. Not knowing how long this new normal will last is daunting, we’ve organized our homes, made the sourdough, re-watched entire series, and still, here we sit. Bored, frustrated, and feeling less and less motivated to do much of anything.
So what do you do from here, when getting off the couch feels like a chore in and of itself? How are you expected...
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...
Do you ever feel like life is just sort of happening to you?
You meander through your days on autopilot. From home, to work, and then back home.
You absently kiss your partner. You passively play with your kids.
And while there are occasional moments of sheer and utter joy like on your wedding day, or during your yearly vacation, by and large it feels like you're just passing the time.
What a shitty way to live when you put it that way, huh? And unfortunately, it's how must of us sail through life, from cradle to grave.
You guys know I talk a lot about unleashing your inner bad ass warrior.
But what the heck does that even mean??
I mean, it's nice to say and all, and it sounds cool, but seriously, how do you go from just living your life, going through the motions, following all the rules, to stepping into your bad ass warrior identity? Especially if you don't feel much like a bad ass warrior.
Sister... I got your back.
Which is why today I'm going through the 11 steps, or the 11 commandments if you will, of owning your inner bad...

CALLING ALL PERFECTIONISTS!!
I have a story for you that I think is important for you to hear, so listen up...
I was on a coaching call with a client this past week, who was struggling with the nutrition part of her program.
She was having a hard time with knowing what to eat, how much to eat, and with figuring out what was really healthy versus what was just good marketing (a fair concern).
She talked about how she had done so many diets before that didn't work, that didn't last,...

Failure. Failure. Failure. I'm rolling the word around in my mouth, seeing what it tastes like.
Failure. There's such a finality to it. Failure. Such a pain to it. Failure. Shame comes to mind. Failure. Ah, there's the fear creeping in.
Failure has become the new "F" word, and in the age of perfectly polished social media channels where beautiful girls show off their beautiful lives without a hiccup or misstep insight, it can feel inevitable. And paralyzing.
