Struggle with all or nothing thinking? Do this...

Do you ever find yourself getting really frustrated that.........no matter how hard you seem to try, sticking to a diet or workout routine always seems to fail? It’s not because of your intentions and it’s not because of your desire to change. It’s because you’ve fallen into the trap that we all do which is…....."if I can’t follow the plan 100% I won’t see results, so what’s the use?" Now that Summer is here, that mindset can derail us even more. But this thinking is exactly why most of us go up and down for YEARS when it comes to our health and fitness goals. It's the classic "all or nothing mentality". But here's the thing.....it doesn't take discipline to get the results you're after. It just takes consistency. There's a BIG difference. Discipline is all about a strict and rigid adoption of RULES. Rules that, if broken, require punishment. When we apply that punishment to ourselves it usually means self loathing, and ultimately self sabotage.

5 Reasons (plus a bonus) Why You NEED To Be Doing Strength Training

5 Reasons (plus a BONUS) Why You NEED To Be Doing Strength Training 1. You won't get bulky. Seriously. Women who get bulky WANT to do it and work hard at it. It doesn't happen by accident. 2. You burn more calories at rest with lean muscle tissue, meaning you can work out less, eat more, and tone faster. 3. Bone strength. Weight-bearing exercise offers it in spades. 4. Energy. More muscle means more JUICE. Fewer energy troughs and spikes, better balance throughout the day. 5. Better sleep, rest, and recovery. Often within weeks (or less). But the BIGGEST reason I love strength training?

Weight Gain After 40: Understanding the Changes and Practical Solutions

  As we age, our bodies undergo various transformations, and weight gain is a common concern for many women over 40. But fear not! Instead of resorting to grueling workouts that leave you feeling drained, let’s explore the real reasons behind weight gain after 40 and discover effective strategies to maintain a healthy body. Hormones: The Culprit Hormonal Fluctuations : As you approach menopause, your hormones—such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone—start to play tricks on you. These fluctuations lead to changes like decreased bone density, lean muscle loss, and mood swings. It’s like a hormonal rollercoaster! But remember, you’re not alone. Metabolism Matters Sluggish Metabolism : Blame it on the hormones again! Your resting metabolic rate naturally slows down with age, and lower estrogen levels contribute to this sluggishness. Plus, you tend to accumulate more fat, especially around your waistline. But here’s the secret: Stay Active! Regular exercise keep

Hormones, Your Metabolism and Belly Fat

The truth about hormones & toning Imagine if your hormones worked with you. Replacing energy dips and mood swings with a smooth-running metabolism that builds lean definition while you eat more. Not only is this POSSIBLE... I can show you how to do it. Check out this video to see how!

Your fad diet nightmare

Have you noticed how people jump onboard with a popular fad diet, lose 5, 10 or even 20 pounds…only to gain it all back and then some. Why does this happen? It’s actually a simple concept, and once you understand it you will be forever saved from the tortures of yo-yo dieting. Fad diets saddle you with unsustainable calorie restrictions and some even cut out entire food groups just to produce that short lived drop in weight—a process that is actually harmful to your long term metabolism. The fad diets also ignore one major component to shaping up: exercise. You see, most fad diets operate on one age old premise:  cut calories, cut calories, cut calories.  By restricting the type and amount of food consumed the fad dieter usually sees an immediate drop in weight. If only it stopped there… But it doesn’t stop there. Life continues, and the fad dieter returns to their pre-diet eating habits—with one major difference in their body due to the sudden drop in pounds. Their calori

Don't fall for this weight loss myth

  People tend to assume that in order to lose weight they need to cut calories. This is NOT necessarily true. In fact, cutting more calories could be the reason you might not be losing weight. There are a couple things to consider first. What is your body and metabolism used to when it comes to your nutrition? People typically fall into one of three categories. 1 - Chronic over eater. You are consuming more calories than your body requires daily.   2 - Chronic under eater. You’ve been trying to lose weight so you cut calories.  You’ve been restricting what you eat for years and not seeing results. This can happen if you have a busy or inconsistent schedule as well. 3 - Yo-yo Eater. You try to be REALLY good with your eating.  Avoid carbs and foods you love.   When you fall off the wagon, you binge on ALL of the things.  You go from eating few calories to eating a LOT of calories. ALL of these types of eaters place a large amount of stress on your body and metabolism. Your body will no

Why you won’t get toned

All the hoping and planning in the world won’t get you toned. Not the newest research. Or throwing sh** at the fan until something clicks. As long as you’re in “hunting” mode, looking for the right program that will suddenly allow you to sculpt your body into the exact image you have in your head… You’ll keep finding restrictive and fad diets promising a solution that will never come. The real answer is simple. It’s holistic. But still you see diets saying “This one mystery food is forcing your body to hold onto lbs!”… Which is total BS. Outside of food sensitivities, you can eat your favorite foods as long as you can see the big picture… And use them to get toned on your terms! Macros. Strength training. Ample rest and hydration. Master those and you can build the leanest, strongest body you’ve ever had at any age! To discover how, and to finally make consistent progress without ever getting trapped in a cookie-cutter plan again… Follow these steps exactly!

Is ADHD ruining your results?

I love shiny new objects! You get excited about something new.  You are SUPER motivated because it’s going to be  awesome! You put in all the work to get started and it’s going great. And then… Squirrel! πŸ‘€ You jump to the next thing and never finish what you just started. Sound familiar? This happens ALL the time with weight loss programs. A new workout. A new diet. A new supplement. A new medication. The shiny new thing is the  key  to you losing weight and keeping it off. The truth is that it’s exactly what’s holding you back from getting what you want. The BEST thing you can do is be consistent. You need a program that you can do for more than 30 days… You need to learn the habits and flexibility so that you can sustain it long term. Last I checked, you’re going to need to be healthy for the rest of your life… When you shift your mindset to long term vs. short term, you will immediately start to see better results. Funny how that works. If you need help creating a plan that works f

What’s The Difference Between Counting MACROS vs Calories

Macro counting & calorie counting aren't all that different. Even with macros, generally you'll try to stick to a set calorie count. The key with both approaches is getting enough protein so the rest of those calories can do the required work for lean muscle growth. But, protein aside, there are a few major differences between these two philosophies. And once you "see" why I prefer macros and will always prefer macros... Particularly with increasing age... I think you'll have the same lightbulb moment I did.
