Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
It's happening, the moment you've been waiting all week for. I'm about to spill the tea on the exact steps I took with my food and fitness to lose those 'last 10 pounds' I gained while vacationing in Greece.
But before we get to the good stuff I need you to see me as your personal coach right now. And as your coach I am imploring you, if you haven't listened to (or at least read) part 1 yet... GO BACK!
I know mindset work isn't nearly as sexy as the more specific...
I forgot what it was like... carrying weight on your body that you don't want to be there.
I remembered it in theory.
I remember pinching my stomach with frustration. I remember folding my arms over my torso every time I sat down to hide the rolls. I remember hating sit ups because it made my pooch more pronounced. I remember working out twice a day hoping it would fix the problem.
But what I forgot are all the emotions you experience on a minute-by-minute basis.
I forgot that...
Last week we talked about what steps you can take to start overcoming your food fears whether they be eating bananas, enjoying carbs, not tracking every morsel you eat, and the like.
But there was one step that needed its own episode: debunking the lies that made you fearful in the first place.
So much of our anxiety around food comes from inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated information. So it's time to set the record straight.
Last week I was chatting with a new client who was struggling with a serious case of menopause belly.
You know that little (or not so little) tire of fat that forms around your midsection when you hit menopause that seems to defy the laws of weight loss??
The one that resists every diet attempt and workout routine? (Because hot flashes, low libido, and poor sleep aren’t bad enough, am I right??)
While I’m sure you’re familiar with the fact that hormonal changes...
This Cinco De Mayo I decided to go spend some time with my big sister (a fellow holistic health coach). And as we sat and enjoyed absolutely mouthwatering gluten-and-dairy-free burritos and modified margaritas made with just tequila, lemon, lime, and lime la croix, we talked about our clients and the various ways we get them to make lasting change - ya know, typical shop talk.
Want to know our secret?
It was a strategy we came back to again and again: eating the same...
Do you ever want someone to just freaking tell you what to eat? What's good? What's bad? What's allowed? What's not?
I get it. That is the simplicity and clarity we need when we're new to any skill.
If we're just starting piano, we can't start with chords and using both hands at once. We have to learn note by note, pluck it out finger by finger.
But eventually, if we want to get good, we have to progress. We have to learn the more advanced skills, navigate the greater complexities, until eventually we...
Tell me if you've experienced this situation before...
You're scrolling social media, and one of your favorite health coaches comes on with a really inspiring post and you think to yourself, That's it... I'm doing it.
You have a conversation with her, you hand her your credit card, and then you go to start the program and suddenly all that motivation you had when you saw that post disappears.
You don't really want to follow her suggestions, you find yourself dodging her calls, you rebel against...
Sometimes the more you dig into nutrition studies, the more confused you become.
I could find you literally hundreds of articles proving that alcohol has health benefits as well as hundreds of articles proving that you should never have a sip of alcohol again.
Same can be said for fat, carbs, fasting, soy, dairy, grains... the debates on what's good vs evil are endless.
But one controversial drink hits a little too close to home for many of us....
I'm always the person who's looking to get any extra edge I can when it comes to my health. I don't want to be 'normal'. I don't want to be 'average'. I want to optimize my body and my health and see how far I can go.
But I know not everyone is like me. Some of us are just trying to put one foot in front of the other and get to a place of even feeling ok on a day-to-day basis. Which is totally fine too!
Whichever category you fit into, this episode is for you because we are going over ways to...
99% of the women who come to my practice have tried every diet under the sun. They’ve tracked their food, cut carbs, timed their meals, and they are exhausted.
Exhausted from the trial and error, exhausted from getting their hopes dashed, exhausted from being unhappy in their skin.
That’s where I come in. To shed light on why their past attempts haven’t worked (hint: your body is not broken) and to pave a new path that puts an end to yo-yo dieting for good.
So if you’re wondering why the...
