Transform your Mind - Transform your Body - Transform your Life
I can't tell you how many times I've been asked the question, "What's the 'best' diet??"
And I'm willing to bet, in the midst of the hailstorm of information out there, you've asked yourself that very same question.
I too have been in that spot, tearing my hair out trying to decipher truth from fiction as I hear a million different things from a million different experts.
Which is why I wanted to write today's post, to help you decipher the diet that is best for you. Because, as I've told you before, what works for one person...
Because sometimes you just need some simple guidelines to fall back on...
As the busiest travel day of the year approaches, I know staying on track to reach your weight loss goals can pose a challenge. It feels like you have less control of your food, your schedule, and let's be honest, your will power.
But I have to tell you, it isn't as difficult as it seems when you have a plan. I once had a client site traveling as her biggest barrier to weight loss as her job shipped her around the country two weeks out of the month. Often times she was staying in small towns without a lot of options.

It seems the ever present assumption... as you get older, you get more run down, more tired, more stressed, and there's really not much you can do about it. It's called "adulting" right?
Even I fell into this trap for a few years. It struck me early, hitting hardest in my early twenties. I constantly felt tired; I couldn't even fathom the idea of waking up without an alarm, let alone waking up feeling energized for the day ahead. I assumed, as many do, that it was just the ever growing...
Often times, people assume they have to turn their world upside down and inside out if they want to change their life for the better.
But truth be told, the more overwhelming the shift, the less likely you are to be consistent. And with no consistency, comes no lasting change.
Which is why I wanted to give you this list of 5 easy-to-implement habits that can truly change your health, your mind, your mood, your energy, and your life for the better.
1. Eat at least 5 servings of produce.
Most people feel like crap because...
Oh hey holiday season, where'd you come from? Oh, out of nowhere?? Yeah... sounds about right!
Ya'll (yes, I say "ya'll")... I cannot believe we are already in November. I cannot believe we are 2 months away from 2019. And I cannot believe that between now and said new year, the average American will gain 10 freaking pounds!
Guys... we've got to raise the bar this year. We've got to do better, we've got to be better, we've got to set a better example for the next generation. And we've got to stop normalizing the holiday weight...
The holidays are officially here, and it's time to decide how you're going to finish off 2018.
Is this going to be another year of over indulgence that you regret as soon as the new year hits?
Will your 2018 resolutions remain a distant memory?
Will you throw your hands up again and assume these last 2 months are a lost cause?
Do you want to step up to the end of 2018 and make it count?
Do you want to finish even stronger than you started?
Do you want to enjoy...
If you have joined in on any workout regimen in the last couple of years, chances are good you've come across the term "HIIT training" or "High Intensity Interval Training."
This type of training pairs short bouts of extremely high intensity cardio moves (think sprinting at 90% of your max effort) with slightly longer bouts of active recovery (like walking at a slow to moderate pace).
This style of training has been touted for it's ability to burn tons of calories in a short amount of time, speed weight loss, improve longevity,...
As of this weekend, we are officially in holiday season. Which means lots of parties, treats, and temptations that can quickly derail you from your goals.
But let's be real, you aren't going to avoid holiday parties or abstain from your favorite tasty traditions just to avoid that annoying end-of-year weight gain. That's what New Years resolutions are for, right??
Well, what if I told you you could easily enjoy the pleasures of the holiday season and enjoy waltzing into the New Year way ahead of the weight loss curve?...
If you have ever gone in search of a weight loss plan, you know there are thousands of programs to choose from that will present you different variations of the same advice: change your eating and up your exercise.
So, with all of these options (many with very sound advice), why do we continue to struggle with our weight?
Because, in my humble opinion and with almost 8 years of experience under my belt, I have found nutrition and fitness make up about 1/4 of a transformation. The rest? Mindset.
