In my years in the health and fitness industry, it’s not unusual for me to see people stay in contemplation for YEARS before taking action on their goals. It seems like there’s always next Monday or next month or after my birthday or next year. But the truth is that your time on this earth is finite. If you’re out of shape and less than optimally healthy because you “don’t have time” or haven’t made your health a priority, think about what you’re missing out on… The confidenc
Maybe you’ve been reading my messages for the past few months. Maybe we just recently found each other. Either way, I want you to know that your goals, your health, your confidence, and your success mean everything to me. These things are, in fact, the reason I am in business. They’re what fuel my passion and my soul. I’ve worked with hundreds of amazing clients over the years, and the one thing I think they would all say is that they have a deep sense of how much I truly car
It’s officially the start of FOOD SEASON!
With October comes Halloween, sweets and chocolate.
With November comes the pre-Christmas warm up.
With December comes a month of Christmas celebrations…that all involve food and drink.
It’s no wonder the average person gains 7-10 lbs this season!
So, let’s talk about a few best practices specifically for Halloween since it’s almost here. :-)
I promise that if you’ll put these practices in place you’ll still enjoy O
Any time there’s a goal you want to achieve – fitness, business, relationships, really anything – and you aren’t progressing toward it, there’s one thing you need to know: Your values and your actions are out of alignment. If you value health but your action is eating a bag of crisps every day, you’re out of alignment. If you value is being fit but your action is delaying exercises day after day until weeks go by, you’re out of alignment. If your value is to be able to quit y
Have you ever noticed that when people are looking to get in shape, they often jump right into huge goals? Maybe it’s running a marathon or even just a 5k. The same thing happens with dieting. Giving up all sugar cold turkey. Saying you’ll never eat carbs again. Whatever the case may be, I’m here to offer far better advice. Practice consistency above all else… because it’s truly the consistency of small changes over time that add up to big results. When you come out the gate
One of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen clients making over the years when they come to me is that they’ve spent months or yearstrying to piece together information to help them change their bodies... A workout from YouTube here. A recipe from Pinterest there. A new random 7-day body transformation challenge. Then a 10-day cleanse Maybe you even feel like you’re on track at that point. But then, in the supermarket queue you see a magazine that shows you the next best thing. You
Have you noticed how many diet fads and trends are currently circulating the market? And ask any person who is ALL IN with one of these ways of eating, and their philosophy behind eating that way is nothing short of dogmatic. And I’m sorry, but that is NOT how nutrition should ever be. Because there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to eating healthy. Of course, common sense tells you broccoli is healthier than crisps…that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking spec
You’re not going to love every moment of the health and weight loss journey. It’s going to feel hard, and you’re going to want to give up at some point. You’re going to get off track. Past habits and patterns are going to creep in and attempt to thwart your commitment. People you care about will give you a hard time about what you’re trying to do – especially if you choose to eat differently around them in social situations. But here’s the thing… It’s all so, so worth it. Whe
We live in a world that is so fast-paced that our human brains don’t know what to make of it. Think back 100 years – cars were only on the market the past few decades, aeroplanes were just becoming a think, and TV had decades before it would come into existence. Life was slow-paced and predictable. Now, largely due to technology and the internet, we’ve had to, as a species, adapt so fast that it’s actually impossible. We went from the simple life 100 years ago to receiving an
