Do you ever feel stuck in the same routine? I don't know about you but I'm a creature of habit and while that can be a good thing, sometimes I get stuck in a rut. This rut leaves me feeling unmotivated, boring, and sometimes gets me emotional.
Can you relate??
Here are three ways that I like to pull myself out of that mundane, robotic feeling.
I was told that it would be helpful if I wrote out what I eat in an average day. Please keep in mind that my workout days look different than my rest days. My workout days usually have more protein in them and my rest days generally are more veggies, sometimes no meat, and less calories. I'll try to lay out both for you.Read More
One question I often get from clients is “what are some good snacks to have?” Healthy snack criteria for me includes sugar free, quick, easy, and unprocessed. But, eating a handful of almonds every time you want a snack isn’t the best option either.Read More
I’m just going to put it out there, if I’m being completely transparent, I just am NOT a fan of measuring your goal or success by how much you weight. Nope, nada, no.
Why? Well, I’ve never seen numbers be all that accurate. Nor do I think weight should be the ultimate health marker. I weigh 155 pounds! Holy moly! That seems like a lot. In fact, according to the height to weight ratio, I would be borderline overweight. Seems inaccurate given I am 12 percent body fat, don’tcha think? My fiance actually is borderline obese given his weight to height ratio. His body fat percentage, most likely even lower than mine.
Every year, we set goals. And every year, many of them fall to the wayside by the end of February. So, why is that?
What I’ve found is most people are not clear on their WHY. It’s really that simple. Finding clarity on your reasoning, your WHY behind a goal is the only sure fire way to see it through.Read More
Did you know that certain food combinations can wreak havoc on your digestion & gut? And as you've heard me talk about before, health begins in our gut. So, as you can imagine, it's probably important to understand what food combinations might cause you upset, pain, and that nasty "B" word... bloating! Here's a quick & dirty list for you:Read More
I want to take a step away from nutrition and fitness for a moment. Instead, I wanted to focus on the one thing that truly needs work and attention at this time. It seems the world needs more love.
I find it's easy to get lost in the "to-dos" and simply stay "busy" and then get stuck in the mentality of not having enough time. So, what if we instead, decided on what our priorities were and stay true to those things? What if we committed to putting our energy & TIME into those top priorities?Read More
So, you want to drop 20 pounds off the old waist tire? You want to make it to the world wide Jazzercisers competition or perhaps the Crossfit Games. Maybe you just want to start working out in hopes that your slight insomnia will vanish and you can finally sleep like a baby -- snoring, drooling, yapping through your dreams, sleepwalking down the street and the whole nine yards. Sorry to break it to ya, but whatever end goal you’ve attached to working out won’t be accomplished just by working out. You heard me, friend! It ain’t gonna happen.
