We are having a mold inspection at our home this morning. You can’t heal from mold if you are living in an environment with it. LISTEN HERE   Tough love pep talk You want to lose weight, but are you willing to do what’s needed to lose weight?⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Really, are you?⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ It’s time for a little tough love.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ If you’re not willing to…⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Track Macros⁠⁠ Meal Prep⁠⁠ Get Sleep⁠⁠ Drink Water⁠…

LISTEN HERE 10 reasons you’re not losing weight: ⁠⁠You’re stressed⁠⁠ You’re not getting enough sleep⁠⁠ You’ve been on a diet forever⁠⁠ You don’t spend long enough in maintenance⁠⁠ You’re not getting enough movement during the day⁠⁠ You’re overtraining⁠⁠ You’re only doing cardio⁠⁠ You’re eating too much processed food⁠⁠ You’re estimating how much you’re eating⁠⁠ Your hormones/thyroid/gut health are out of whack⁠⁠⁠⁠ Lots of factors influence weight loss… and they’re usually not the ones you think…

Should you use the scale?⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ This one is tricky.⁠⁠ LISTEN HERE ⁠⁠ While I believe the scale can be a great tool for monitoring progress and daily weight fluctuations, it’s really important to remember that the scale is just a tool.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Meaning, use it, but don’t abuse it. Or better yet, don’t let it abuse you.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ If the scale triggers you, makes you think negative thoughts about yourself, lowers your self-confidence, or…

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…

I weigh 8 pounds MORE in the photo on the right. ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ It just goes to show you that the number on the scale is ONE measure of progress, not THE measure of progress.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ For years I would wake up, strip down, and step on the scale. I would note if I was the same, less, or (gasp!) more than I was the morning before.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ If I was less, I’d celebrate!⁠ If…

The Lean Macros Bundle is a comprehensive, 150-page macro bundle to help you lose weight while never cutting out the foods you love. It’s no secret that counting macros have an important part in my personal health journey, and I have been able to help so many other women with their own health journeys by incorporating (flexible) macronutrient counting into their lives. If you’ve been curious to incorporate macro counting into your life, but have…

The longer you spend in maintenance, the better your body will respond to a cut.⁠⁠ 🙌🏻 ⁠⁠ Most women spend their lives in a deficit (aka on a diet). ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ They’re always counting calories, tracking steps, and saying ‘no’ to their favorite foods.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ All in the name of losing weight.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ But what if I told you, rather than trying to keep your calories low and your cardio high, what you need to…

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed on the Run Eat Repeat Podcast! Monica and I had a great conversation (it was also fun to catch up with an old friend!), but we didn’t necessarily focus on diets or weight loss. Instead, we talked about macros and how a balanced diet can help you feel better and run better. Ok, sure, sometimes macros get a bad wrap. If you abuse them, you will not…

Not ready for a full-on coaching opportunity? Or maybe you just want to dabble in macros and at-home workouts without investing a lot of money? I totally get it, which is why I created a more affordable option for those who want the information from the Macro Movement Mentorship, but don’t have ample time to commit or who are more self-starters and like to learn on their own. Macro Movement Lite is an 8-week, self-paced course,…

I remember wanting to look like my ‘skinny friends’ when I was younger. ⁠ ⁠ I knew they went to the gym nearly every day, and I knew they counted calories. I remember thinking, if I could get to the gym at least 5-6 days a week, and I committed to eating low-fat, low-calorie everything, I would look like them too.⁠ ⁠ So, I joined a gym. I dieted. I counted calories and I obsessed…

Right out of college, I gained 25 pounds.⁠ ⁠ Suddenly, life was so different. I was living in a new city, had a 40+ hour/week job, was commuting nearly 3 hours a day on public transportation… my cushy college life was over. No more dining hall salad bar, flexible schedule, ‘quick walk’ to the gym, or friends to exercise with.⁠ ⁠ I was overwhelmed, stressed, and it felt like I just couldn’t get myself together.⁠…

How undereating affects your hormones Our brain is pretty freakin’ amazing!⁠ It’s literally designed to keep us alive no matter what. Even when you’re doing silly stuff like undereating, not sleeping enough, exercising too much, and not getting enough vitamins and minerals… all of that.⁠ Your brain detects when your caloric intake is too low. And because it wants us to stay alive, it goes into survival mode. It ramps up your cortisol to beat…

Is your metabolism “damaged?” ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Short answer: No.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Having a damaged metabolism is not a thing. Sure, your metabolism can slow down, but it’s not the “point of no return” when it comes to fat loss. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Our metabolism is constantly changing and ADAPTING to what’s going on in our lives. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Let’s talk about traditional diets and how your body adapts…⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Say you’re eating around 2,000 per day and…

Pep talk below…⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I promise you’ll get there. And know that you’re not alone in your frustration.⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ But LASTING weight loss, done the right way, takes TIME. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ A lot of time, actually. ⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Because you’re not crash dieting just to gain the weight back again. You’re taking a purposeful, slow-and-steady approach, so you don’t need to ride the “weight loss roller coaster” again and again. ⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Weight loss is…
