Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
Confidence is not a personality trait. It is a skill. And everyone has the ability to hone it.
And it's important that we do. Because our self-esteem impacts every area of our life. It impacts...
I have a confession to make...
I am a holistic health coach and I have always struggled with maintaining a regular meditation practice.
Even though I know the endless benefits proven by study after study (which we cover in depth in this episode).
Even though I've always had a gut feeling nudging me towards more intentional meditation.
Even though I've experienced the benefits of doing meditation-like activities like going on long walks, coloring, and yoga.
The practice of...
I've said it before and I'll say it a thousand more times...
In the game of health and weight loss, your mindset will fuck you up more than a cheat day ever will.
How you speak to yourself, how you perceive setbacks, how you think about obstacles, and what you focus on is the difference between you taking another step forward or quitting.
It's the difference between you staying consistent or swinging from one extreme to another.
It's the difference between you feeling grateful when you...
Does this sound like you, "I know what to eat, I know how to exercise, I just can't stick with it!"
If so, you are not alone. Consistency is probably the single biggest thing women are struggling with when they come to me, and it is the single most important thing if you want results.
But when talking about consistency, almost every woman I know says, "I just can't stay motivated long enough."
And I'm here to tell you, motivation has nothing - and I do mean nothing - to do with it.
Yes, today's episode is all about how to jumpstart your motivation and I'm sure you're chomping at the bit to find out how to ignite that in yourself.
But before we get into the nitty gritty tips and tricks, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you this first...
Relying on motivation to achieve any long-term goal is like being in a boat and relying on the wind to get you from one continent to the another.
That wind makes the ride a lot easier, smoother, and more enjoyable. But at...
I want you to take a moment and think about how you spend your morning...
For most of us, our morning routine is the most consistent part of our day. We wake up at the same time, eat the same food (or we don't eat at all), and go through the same steps, day in and day out.
But by existing in this state of autopilot, we're missing out on a huge opportunity to set ourselves up for better choices, more energy, and a better mood all throughout the day.
See, our brains like congruency. So if we...
Do you ever feel like weight loss should not be so hard?
I think the world of fad diets with all its contradictory advice has made it seem impossible to make the 'right' food choices.
Hell, if you listened to all the weight loss advice out there you wouldn't be able to eat sugar, meat, veggies, fruit, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, carbs, or fat... sooooo breatharian?
All of this confusing info has also made us hyper-focus on the things that really don't make...
Is there part of me that's embarrassed? Sure. The perfectionist in me doesn't want to admit that as a health coach I still have health problems.
But the truth is, I have 20 years of damage to make up for.
Just to give you a little background on me.
Can I be honest with you?
I love sharing, and teaching, and coaching health (in all its aspects) to you because of course I want to help you reach your goals.
Of course I want to help you avoid the struggles and roadblocks I faced.
Of course I want to hear your wins and see your successes.
But it's also because teaching makes me feel confident, and powerful, and safe.
When I'm in 'coaching mode' - as I usually am on this blog and in this podcast - there's a wall of protection around...
We’re all guilty of it. We tell ourselves half-truths, give ourselves little excuses, allow ourselves get-out-of-jail-free cards for why we can’t achieve our goals.
But if we can get brutally honest, we’ll realize more often than not that little voice isn’t a voice of reason. It’s a voice of fear. And it wants to keep you nice and safe in your beautifully designed comfort zone where nothing has to change, and yet the imagined future is full of possibilities and hope.
And these are some of...
