Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
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.
Is it because I skip all the holiday parties and boozy drinks? Nope.
I thoroughly partake in all of the fun of the season! But I do have a few habits that keep me from getting so far off course that have to start back at ground zero come January...
"When you're not used to being confident, confidence feels like arrogance.
When you're used to being passive, assertiveness feels like aggression.
When you're not used to getting your needs met, prioritizing yourself feels selfish. Your comfort zone is not a good benchmark." - @cosmicteaholisticshop
A friend shared this quote with me recently and boy did it hit close to home.
I've been a passive people-pleaser most of my life, and while I've spent years working through that in therapy, my limits have been...
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.

1. When you have an opinion, say it! Especially when someone asks.
2. Be unapologetically you.
3. Own your mistakes.
4. Take one small action towards your biggest, scariest, most important goal every single day. Even when you're not ready. No, especially when you're not ready.
5. Ask for what you want. In bed, in business, in friendships, and even in restaurants.
For my bonus tip on what to do every...
Be honest, how many times have you let other people's opinions steer your life in one direction or another?
Tens of times? Hundreds of times? Thousands of times?
How would your life look different right now had you followed your own heart, your own intuition, that internal compass that pulls you towards decisions that you may not even understand in the moment?
Would you be in a different job? A different relationship? A different state?
Would you have started that blog, or that Etsy shop, or that online course?
Would you be...
Listen to the Podcast episode:
Do you struggle with finding balance in your relationship?? Whether it's balance with work, life, and romance, balance with money, or balance with giving and taking, you've got to have the tools to pull things back into alignment when they fall out of equilibrium.
And establishing this stability within the tumultuousness of 2 entrepreneur's lives is something my boyfriend Bryan and I have deep and intimate knowledge of.

July. It seems like a good time for reflecting. We're half way through the year and can look back at our New Years resolutions and see if we need to get re-engaged with our goals, or maybe even set bigger ones.
But I wanted to look back further than New Years. See, this past week, I reached the end of my day-planner and I always find it fun to look back and see what I was working on a year ago.
And man you guys... I have failed a LOT over the past 365 days. I mean, almost everything I was...

When Bryan and I first started dating 3 years ago, we were in very similar places.
We were both entrepreneurs, foodies, and fitness junkies.

Raise your hand if you consider yourself to be an overachiever...
maybe you did well in school,
maybe you were the class pet and always messed up the grading curve (oops),
