Action Inspiration

Motivation comes once we’ve taken action, not while scrolling inspiration boards on Pinterest. Getting started is always going to be way harder than keeping it going. So just get started. Create your own inspiration by taking action.

Eat What You Want, When You Want It.

Most (not all) of us women have a pretty messed up relationship with food. We’ve been on some sort of “diet” most of our lives and sadly, are still unhappy with how our bodies look.

We use words like, “bad” to describe foods we think we shouldn’t be eating. We punish ourselves for eating certain things. We push (unnecessarily) harder in the gym when we think we’ve eaten too much. Or restrict ourselves so much, that we eventually cave and end up eating more than we need…and then feel guilty for having no willpower.

5 S.T.E.P. ’s To Being Tuned In.

One of my biggest missions as a health and fitness coach is to help women become tuned in to their bodies.

WHY?

Many of us think we should lose weight. We should be working out. We should be watching what and how much we eat. The media (very directly) tells us this everyday.

Over it.

But can we just stop caring about it? Can we just stop trying to change our bodies to the detriment of our health. Can we shift our focus to something other than our thighs and abs? Like seeing what are bodies are capable of doing.

We Got The NEAT

 In other words, killing yourself for 20-30 minutes at Cross Fit (or any super intense workout), then sitting on your ass all day, might not be as good as moving a lot throughout the day, even if the day doesn’t include a “workout”.

Mind Over Food

Okay, whoa, what? Basically how we view food before we eat it, positively or negatively, will effect how we digest and store it later. Crazy, right? Think of how many times you’ve eaten a dessert and felt a huge amount of guilt as you ate it. Or all the times you ate a salad, thinking how gross/bland/boring it was.

Food Sensitivities Don't Suck, Part 2

I don’t know about you, but feeling just okay is not anything I am interested in. I want to feel good. Really good. Awesome even. I want my body to be free of aches and pains. I want my (aging) skin to glow. I want to wake up and feel energized in the morning. And if that means eliminating certain foods from my diet, then I’m all in.
