Transform your Mind - Transform your Body - Transform your Life
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...

You might expect a post like this to be filled with the typical "you're eating too much," "your workouts aren't effective," "you aren't taking the right supplements." But honestly, in my 7 years of experience as a trainer, those have not been the true reasons for stalled (or never started) weight loss.
In this post, I'm going to outline the biggest underlying culprits preventing you from reaching your health and fitness goals, I'm going to give you some basic tools you can start using today to begin making...
I'm telling you right now, you are going to look at the ingredients in this recipe and think, That's it... Kat's gone off the deep end.
But I swear to you, these brownies are delicious, fudge-y, soft, and decadent. You would never think they were actually healthy for you.
Don't believe me? Give them a shot!
Sugar cravings. The two words that can ignite fear in the fiercest of dieters, the fitness warriors, the health fanatics.
Sugar cravings. The destroyer of weight loss goals, the seemingly insurmountable desire for sweetness, the ever present frustration and saboteur of all things healthy.
Sugar cravings. Are they possible to truly beat? Or will we face this foe forever?
Let's find out...
I'm sure you've heard the study that explains how sugar is just as, if not more addictive than cocaine. Which means the battle to...
"I always have this poochy belly..."
"I hate my thick thighs..."
"By butt is too big..."
"I wish my arms looked more defined..."
We all have that one area of our body that drives us nuts and, of course, it always seems like the most stubborn body part to tone, tighten, or taunt into submission.
Why? Why is there such a thing as a "trouble zone?" And is there anything to be done about it?
Well, while there are a million DVD's and workout programs out there titled things like Chiseled Abs, Thigh Slimmer, and Burn Off That...
I'm a girl of habit and can get in the same food routine very easily. So it makes me exceptionally happy when I venture out, try a new recipe, and love it enough to add it to my "regulars" list.
This Whole30 baked salmon and dill zoodles recipe, which I found on theorganicdietition.com, can be served hot as a "pasta" dish or cold as a salad, and tastes just as good either way.
It's very bright and zesty in flavor and has a beautiful mix of textures. Bon appetit!
2 large zucchini, spirilized or shredded into noodles (I...
I can't tell you how many times I've been asked the question, "What's the 'best' diet??"
And I'm willing to bet, in the midst of the hailstorm of information out there, you've asked yourself that very same question.
I too have been in that spot, tearing my hair out trying to decipher truth from fiction as I hear a million different things from a million different experts.
Which is why I wanted to write today's post, to help you decipher the diet that is best for you. Because, as I've told you before, what works for one person...
