Transform Your Body - Transform Your Business - Transform Your Life
Do you ever find yourself so close to a goal you can taste it? All you have to do to achieve everything you ever dreamed of is reach out. It's there for the taking.
Yet, instead of feeling excited about the new level you know you're about to hit, you get pummeled with waves of anxiety, fear, and doubt.
Instead of racing forward and embracing the very thing you've been striving for all this time, you find yourself sinking back, searching for comfort, safety, and the certainty of the grounds you've been walking for years.
In this week's episode of Life Unleashed, I interviewed my good friend, Equinox colleague from back in the day, and extremely talented personal trainer, educator, and nutrition coach, Samantha Nicole.
We dove deep into the topics of macronutrient counting for weight loss, how to incorporate the power of manifestation into your transformation journey, and why always wanting more doesn't make you broken, it makes you better.
For this blog post, I've focused on the topic of macronutrients. But for the rest of this amazing...
You may know, I don't generally hand out 'DO NOT EAT' lists to my clients. I feel like that usually sets us up for feeling deprived at least, or it sets us up for a full on binge fest and self-loathing spiral at worst.
However, it is hard to argue that some foods (and beverages) just do not fit in very well with a weight loss plan. (Just ask my client, 'Carol', down below.)
So today I am bringing you a list of the worst foods for weight loss... with this caveat: if...
It's day 2 of The 5 Days of Fitness, and we are talking all about weight loss after 40 (check out my girl Jamie's story down below).
First of all, here are a few things you need to understand...
Yes, your metabolism slows and your hormones change as you age. Yes, the pounds can become more stubborn.
No, it is not impossible to have the body you want. And no, you do not have to starve yourself to create the body you want (in fact, that will...
Listen to the podcast:
Hey friend, so I'm aware, as of late, I've been heavy into personal development, productivity, and business development for newbie entrepreneurs.
However, I want you to know I have not left my fitness folks behind. Which is why I'm doing a special series of fitness blogs.
I'm calling it, The 5 Days of Fitness. (I love alliterations, don't you?)
So, for the next few posts I'll be answering some...

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...
I remember back in the day when I worked out twice a day 5 days per week, I watched everything I ate, I got plenty of sleep, and I could NOT seem to drop the stubborn pounds that had settled around my midsection.
And as someone who was fascinated by health and fitness throughout my entire life, it was extra frustrating that I was so stumped.
To make an extremely long story short, my problem turned out to be my hormones and my stress levels. Once I got my thyroid numbers in check,...
How do you start your morning each day?
Do you reach for your phone before your eyes fully open?
Do you throw on your make up while chugging coffee and running through your to-do list for the day?
Do you absently kiss your spouse on the way out the door?
Do you run through the drive-through because you didn’t have time to make your breakfast, again?
I’ll be honest, I used to not give much thought to my morning routine either. The morning was just a necessary pit stop between sleep and work.
Holy crap you guys, I got this INCREDIBLE recipe from Food Faith Fitness and it is absolutely stellar!!
If you are craving some naughty comfort food, but don't want the side of guilt, you've got to try this one out, trust me you won't be sorry.
I often get asked if I "cheat" on my diet, and if I do, how much??
Well I like to say, I don't cheat, I just eat. It's true. I don't approach my nutrition like I'm on a diet, I just eat the things that I know make me feel the best and don't bother with the stuff that makes me feel like crap.
The thing is, a lot of people seem to think that means I never get to "have fun" with my food. Quite the contrary! All it takes is a little imagination and a Google search for me to find healthier ways of including those mouth watering meals when I...
