Retreats. You see them everywhere nowadays and my guess is you’re extremely tempted to partake in one, but things get in the way like time, money and the energy to travel. While I’m a firm believer that everyone should treat themselves to a retreat at least once in their life, I also understand the challenges behind retreating, vacating and pressing “pause” on your life.
The immense benefits of treating yourself to a retreat include:
resetting the mind, body and spirit
recharging our internal battery
inspiring creativity and motivation
helping to manage and minimize stress
improving clarity around situations and questions we may have
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.
The world we live in is moving fast, there's no doubt about that. To keep up with it, I find that I've fallen into a "what's next" mentality. A mentality where I focus on what I need to be doing next to get ahead, to stay on the pulse of things, to out do what I've done and keep things moving.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
1. First sweep:
Go through your cupboards and remove any food items you KNOW are unhealthy for you, i.e. chips, cookies, candy, etc. If they are out of the house, they will not end up "falling into your mouth!" Another essential thing to do when emptying your kitchen of items that don't align with your health goals is to get out anything that tempts you. We all have our own vice, you know yours and I know mine! So, if it's in the house, it's gotta go!Read More
