Improving Your Mood Through Food

Posted by on Apr 24, 2018 in Nutrition |

Hey lovelies. I’ve been seeing this a lot in my practice lately as well as having the conversations with some of my girls so in light of that, I wanted to briefly jump on and do a short blog. Living well and living that healthy life isn’t limited to just engaging in exciting activities or making tons of cash in life (although admittedly that’s nice too!). It’s a deeper connection to your body, mind, and spirit. All three of these must be nurtured and kept in balance for you to thrive in today’s fast paced world....

Secrets That Weight Loss Companies Don’t Want You To Know

Posted by on Apr 4, 2018 in Fitness, Nutrition |

Everyone loves a good secret, right?  A good secret can be exhilarating and juicy. Often times, entertaining. However, when secrets are used as a means to take advantage of others, those feelings of excitement soon turn to feelings of rage with me.  How about you?? I’m talking primarily about weight loss companies from all over the world have been feeding vulnerable individuals their “keys to weight loss” to fuel their own pocketbooks. Weight loss companies across North America  gross nearly $24 billion dollars annually!...

On the Verge of a Burnout?

Posted by on Mar 26, 2018 in Mindset, Nutrition |

It’s  kind of obvious once you have hit burnout. The overwhelming feelings of exhaustion, the lack of motivation,  doubts of whether you should even be at your job.  We have all had them from time to time but, if you are not there yet, perhaps the symptoms aren’t as obvious. This could be an a-ha moment for some. You may think, how can someone not know they are burnt out??!! If you are chasing the 9-5 train everyday, coping with kids and family life and just trying to get it all done, chances are you’re living off of adrenaline...

A Coach with The Difference

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Fitness, Mindset, Nutrition |

Even though it is a proven fact that having a great, happy body is 80% nutrition and 20% effort, if you want to see those results come with the outcome of a va-va voom body, you’ve gotta be prepared to give it an honest effort of blood, sweat and tears. Are ya with me? Can you do commit to fit? I want women to see women who have that mental edge, that believe you don’t have to let a doctor cut you and suck the fat out of you, you don’t have to let them staple you up, you don’t have to let them give you a pill, you don’t have to let them put a...

The Tales of Spot Reducing Revisited

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Fitness |

YES! A myth! I just can’t stress it enough! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SPOT REDUCING!! Get it in your head!!! It is impossible to do!!!! Whew, had to get that off my chest. Sorry about that! Sorry for my harshness but the buck has to stop here and you need to understand that beyond a shadow of a doubt, this type of weight loss just can’t be done. What I tell clients is this. Think of yourself as a popsicle (yum!) out in the sun on a hot day. Does the popsicle melt at just the top? No, it melts from all over and that is the way your body loses...

Diets Should Have Nothing To Do With Counting Calories!

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Nutrition |

This is a topic definitely worth repeating over and over again. We gotta set the record straight once and for all!!! DIETING has NOTHING to do with counting calories and everything to do with the KINDS of food you put into your body!………I have spent the past 20 plus years living this way and you know what? It works! I can honestly say I have never counted a calorie, like EVER!!! And you don’t have to either.  I have prepared for fitness competitions this way, I have leaned out this way and heck, I’ve even put on muscle mass this way. What does...

What’s the Best Diet to Follow?

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Nutrition |

Have you made the choice to finally say “I’m going to choose a diet and I’m going to stick to it, even if it kills me!”? Well, good for you! But where did you start? I bet you went to the book store, strolled over to the diet section and your jaw hit the floor. Not because there was a real cutie standing next to you, but you were so overwhelmed by the selection of books, you did an about face and went right to Starbucks and ordered an extra large double whip double chocolate chip frappuccino to mull it over. Let me set the record straight on...

“Super Foods” Saying is “Over Stated”

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Nutrition |

OK, after picking up the latest issue of a well known health magazine in my area, the same headline screams at me. “Top 10 Superfoods you didn’t know about”. Oh, really?!?!? There must be some new discovery about some wacky fruit they found in the amazon or something. Will it iron out wrinkles? Will it recapture youth? HHHmmmm, so curiosity gets the better of me so I find the index and flip to the article. HUGE bummer! The article mentions everyday foods we eat practically on a daily basis; onions (already knew that), broccoli (yep, knew...

A Weight Loss Breakthrough

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Mindset, Nutrition |

I am so excited to share this story with you. It is about a personal friend of mine that has struggled with weight most of her life. She’s tried everything possible out there. Every diet pill, every diet, every workout. Nothing changed. She would fluctuate and she would even be successful on a couple plans but alas, over time the weight would just come right back. My girlfriend made contact with me and told me she was getting married and wanted to lose some weight for the big day. I gladly stepped in and we planned out our attack. Meal plans...
