I haven’t always looked like the photo on the right, which was taken just a couple of weeks ago.⁠ Let’s just say, the start of 2020 was rough for me. I struggled with my weight in 2020. I went through a really stressful time that included writing a macro cookbook, coaching 1:1 clients, studying for the FDN certification, and spending hours on the treadmill. The combination of these stressors took a serious toll on my…

Should you use the scale?⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ This one is tricky.⁠⁠ LISTEN HERE ⁠⁠ How I overcame my obsession with the scale While I believe the scale can be a great tool for monitoring progress and daily weight fluctuations, it’s really important to remember that it is just a tool.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Meaning, use it, but don’t abuse it.

A silly photo for a serious post… ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Why do we try to change how we LOOK, rather than how we FEEL?⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Why do we spend so much time on the outside looking in, rather than loving who we are from the inside out?⁠⁠🤷🏻‍♀️ ⁠⁠ ✨It’s as if we feel good about ourselves only through the lens of how we think others experience us.⁠⁠✨ ⁠⁠ Myself included!⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ As a blogger/influencer, I used…
