Going from Stuck to Inspired!

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.

What I Eat in a Day!

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.

Snacks without the Sugar Spike!

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.

So, what does stress do to your gut? Oh so many nasty little things. Let me explain the whole picture for you. 

When we are stressed, we release hormones. One of those hormones being cortisol. Now, cortisol is great when we have an open wound or illness that our body needs to defend against. However, when we are stressed out because we're working 80 hours a week, our marriage is on the rocks, or we can't disconnect from the outside world for fear of missing out... that's a whole other story.

No Talkie before Coffee☕

We've all seen it and we are all probably guilty of it too...

GLORIFYING EXHAUSTION!

What am I talking about? Ya know, the mugs that say, "no talkie before coffee" or "mama needs her coffee" or "behind every successful person is a substantial amount of coffee" or "coffee = survival juice." You've seen them all, I'm sure.

Slow the *bleep* down...

Why I had to slow the (bleep) down....

I'm a busy body. Especially when it comes to working out. I like intense, I like heavy and I like to go all out.
