feels good, doesn’t it?

  There is incredible power in your daily habits . Your habits quite literally mold your body, your health and your accomplishments in life. And it turns out that there’s a special secret sauce to making new habits stick that I’d like to share with you today… This secret sauce goes against our instincts and the way that we are wired, which is why so many of us fail to make healthy, new habits truly stick and become part of our ongoing routine. It’s more natural for us to take on the role of a critic with ourselves than that of a cheerleader. We compare ourselves to others and focus on our flaws rather than pausing to celebrate our wins by really feeling good. This works against us because it is proven emotions create habits and that the positive emotion of FEELING GOOD is the BEST WAY to get a new habit to stick! Now if you’re anything like me then the idea of celebrating tiny little wins is a bit uncomfortable. I’ll feel good about myself when I do something substantial, you may think

Workout smarter (not harder)

  Raise your hand if you’ve ever been told that to lose weight, you need to do cardio? Whether it’s running, cycle classes, or the elliptical, it seems like everyone’s preaching that the only way to drop pounds is to slave away on some cardio machine for hours, to sweat at least a gallon each workout, and to be so sore that you can’t walk for 3 days. The truth is, if you want your workouts to be effective, you must work out smarter, not harder. More time does not equal more results. More sweat does not equal more pounds lost. More muscle soreness does not equal more pants sizes dropped. Working out smarter looks like this: Instead of doing long workouts on a cardio machine, do shorter workouts working multiple muscle groups throughout the week. Instead of trying to push yourself to 100% every workout, do workouts that vary in intensity and work different energy systems throughout the week. Instead of pounding the cardio every day, combine strength and metabolic condi

Its NOT Just The Weight You Lose.. Its The Life You Gain

Ever fall for this bad diet advice?

There’s a lot of BAD advice out there when it comes to weight loss. The worst part is, the bad advice can be hard to spot because it’s usually disguised as the “secret” to weight loss, OR it’s coming from someone with a large following and a chiseled body. Maybe you may have fallen for some of the bad diet advice, but now you know better. But maybe you still have friends falling for it and you desperately wish you could save them. How do you know how to spot bad diet advice? Here’s a few hints: - Demonizing a specific food or food group. Whether it’s carbs, fats, sugar, or fruits, bad diet advice usually involves making you believe that you need to cut out certain foods completely to lose weight. - Overly restricting calories or portion sizes If a person is trying to tell you that you should basically starve to lose weight, RUN in the opposite direction. For long-lasting weight loss, you should actually feel comfortable and satisfied, not hungry and deprived. - A one-size-fits-all app

One ESSENTIAL Habit You Need (for weight loss)

It’s incredibly frustrating to hit a wall with your fat loss . When your results stop but your diet and exercise haven’t changed, it’s quite often dehydration that is the culprit. Most people are chronically dehydrated which means that they are not drinking enough water throughout the day. There are 2 main reasons that not drinking enough water causes you to gain weight... 1. Thirst often feels like hunger - which leads to overeating Most of the time when we think we are hungry, and find ourselves reaching for a snack, it’s actually due to thirst that’s simply disguising itself as hunger. This leads to regrettable food decisions throughout the day - and all of these undesirable calories add up and work against your body fat and energy levels. 2. Dehydration slows down body functions - including your metabolism It's been reported that 75% of Americans suffer from Chronic Dehydration which leaves the body vulnerable to weight gain, illness, injury and further increases the risk of co

Top 3 biggest weight loss mistakes (and a BONUS tip)

Are you making one of these mistakes that could completely ruin your ability to lose weight and keep it off? Most people are. A large majority of people are always hoping to lose anywhere from 5 to 20 pounds, especially this time of year. Yet, only a small percentage ever reaches their goal and an even smaller percentage maintain the weight loss for more than a few months after. The truth is, most people who are hoping to lose weight are making one of these mistakes that will completely derail their efforts: 1.) Too much too soon Most people jump head first into a restrictive diet program that involves cutting out certain "bad" foods or food groups. They commit to giving up their favorite treats for a few weeks and they fall for the lie that certain foods cause weight gain. The truth is, the types of foods you eat don’t cause weight-gain. The amount of food you eat can cause weight-gain if you’re eating in portions that aren’t customized to your body and your goals. 2.) Sh
