Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
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:
So few people take the time to...
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.
If I told you that you can have the body you've always wanted without cutting out your favorite food, without counting calories, and without starving yourself, how would you feel?
My guess? Skeptical as fuck.
It sounds way too good to be true, right? Especially if even the strictest of diets hasn't brought you the results you want.
I know when I used to diet hop, I figured if x diet didn't work, it just meant that I needed to be that much more disciplined, I needed to cut out ...
Do you feel pretty strong in your eating game during the day, but then night hits and it feels like you’re possessed by a demon with 18 stomachs.
You shut the laptop off, you put the kids to bed, you sit on the couch, and the gorging begins.
You shovel down handfuls of salty chips, which then makes you want something sweet so you’ll have a cookie, or 12. Then your boo makes popcorn and you’re just going to have a handful (the bowl is now yours). But you need a soda or cocktail to wash it down....
I can’t begin to tell you how many women have come to me who have tried every diet under the sun who feel like no matter how hard they try, the weight just is never coming off.
After years of watching others find success on the very diets that failed them, they wonder if it’s just… them. They wonder if they’re just getting old, or their genetics are working against them, or they’re simply destined to a life of feeling fluffy.
If you can relate, I’m going to assure you right now:...
Who’s done it? Raise your hand high if you do really well with your eating Monday through Thursday, then Friday night hits and your habits go to hell in a hand basket for the next 3 days.
I know I have! You make it through a stressful week and the ultimate reward is that Friday night pizza you enjoy while watching Netflix.
Then Saturday hits and you find yourself gravitating towards those chips and cookies you did so good at avoiding all week.
Then Sunday comes and it’s time for brunch and...
Have you ever gone full bore into a new diet and you’re so excited about how your body is responding that you don’t think about what will come after the 30, 60, or 90 day plan?
Then that fateful day arrives and all at once you’re filled with so much pride for completing it, yet so much dread for not knowing what the fuck to do next.
This is hard even if you’ve been following a relatively balanced diet plan, but it’s amplified 10000x more when you’ve been severely restricting and you...
My obsession with diet, exercise, and my body weight started at a very early age. I remember devouring nutrition and fitness articles in middle school. Following my mom’s workout DVDs before I was 13 years old. Analyzing the small layer of fat around my midsection in the mirrors of my dance studio at 11 years old.
And yet, I would still spend the next 10 years living in a body I hated.
No matter how obsessed I got about what exercises I should do or what diet I should follow, I just couldn’t stick with a...
