Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
Let me tell you the story of how I had my dream car for 5 days.
My jetta was totaled and on my hunt for a new car I came across a beautiful mini cooper at Carmax. It was a convertible with a silver exterior, gorgeous plaid interior, and shockingly in my budget.
I drove it off the lot, windows down, my favorite music playing, and I felt like I had made it.
But as the week went on something interesting happened.
I constantly worried about it.

If I were to ask you how you unwind after a long, stressful day, what would your answer be?
For many of us, especially post-pandemic, the answer would be a glass of wine... or scotch... or whatever your drink of choice may be.
And here's the thing, if you're happy with your weight, your physical health, and your mental wellbeing, and you enjoy a cocktail every night, I say more power to you!
But most of us are not there.
Most of us are struggling with unwanted weight, anxiety, depression, gut...
Aaaah, the ever elusive flat abs, the toned tummy, the 6-pack... how ever will we find you?
I remember back in my dancer days, a slim waist was the pinnacle of beauty in my eyes. I loved looking at my flat stomach in the morning, but lamented the first meal that would immediately send me back to 'fluffy' territory.
And believe you me, I tried all the gimmicks - apple cider vinegar, 6-pack ab workouts from women's magazines, drinking this drink, following that plan.
Shocker of shockers, it got me nowhere.
Which is why...
As the pandemic winds down, you may be feeling like you're starting at square one with your health and fitness journey.
With excess stress, closed gyms, no consistent routine, the pantry 5 steps away at all times, and no one seeing us from the chest down, a lot of us struggled not to put weight on and say bye-bye to healthy habits.
So let's break it down, start from the beginning, and take it one step at a time using my S.T.R.O.N.G Method:

Reverse dieting is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of decreasing your calories like you would on a diet, you slowly and strategically increase calories over time with the goal of increasing your metabolism and fat-burning potential.
During a reverse diet you will often shift away from cardio and emphasize weight training as a way to tell your body to partition the excess calories towards building lean muscle instead of storing it as fat.
‘Eat more whole foods’ has become one of those weight loss platitudes that tends to go in one ear and out the other. Why? Because that truism has been around since the beginning of time (you know, when we had no option BUT to eat whole foods).
But if you struggle with cravings, if you struggle with weight that won’t seem to come off, if you find yourself constantly thinking about food, ‘eat more whole foods’ may be the most important advice you could employ to turn the...
Have you ever started on fitness journey, fully committed, maybe even saw results, and then life happened and knocked you off course? Maybe you got a promotion, moved, got in a relationship, or got out of a relationship, and suddenly you look up and realize you’ve had take out every night this week or you haven’t done a single workout. And you just sort of throw up your hands in defeat.
Do you find yourself constantly pulled in a million directions? Your to-do list is endless, people constantly need...
Have you ever experienced this: You have a goal to lose weight. And even though reaching that goal would mean everything to you, even though you know how much more confident you would be in your relationship, even though you know you'd have more energy for your kids, even though you know how amazing it would be to feel good in your own skin again, you just can't get yourself to take action.
