Most of us are struggling with unwanted weight, anxiety, depression, gut...
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.

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.

All of this confusing info has also made us hyper-focus on the things that really don't make...
Picture this: It's the weekend. All week long you've been doing so well with you're eating, getting your workouts in, doing your self care. But here you are, elbow deep in a bag of greasy potato chips, asking yourself, "Why do I keep doing this to myself?"
Or maybe your problem isn't binging on the weekends. Maybe you're sitting at a restaurant with friends and family. Everyone is having a good time, ordering delicious food and enjoying a cocktail, and you're sitting there with your dry salad and lemon...

Weight loss plateaus.
They are annoying. Frustrating. Defeating. Discouraging. And all around sucky.
They also are inevitable on any weight loss journey, so instead of fighting the unavoidable, let's understand why they happen and what you can do to get that scale moving again (without doing anything you're going to regret later).
When you start to lose weight you tend to lose it quickly because - spoiler alert - a good amount of it is water weight. Initially your body...
Summer is quickly approaching and with the season of bikinis and short-shorts upon us, you may be contemplating the idea of a 'cleanse' or 'detox' to tighten up those trouble zones.
Maybe you're thinking it would be good to erase some of the damage done to your body over the holidays.
Maybe you want to drop some left-over covid weight.
