Want to live your best life?

It takes more than eating "right" and working out . . .

So many of us get started on a health and fitness journey by making a New Year's Resolution.  We tell ourselves, "this is the year I'm going to take care of myself".  And then what happens?  LIFE!  How do I know this?  Because I've BEEN THERE!

In fact, after years of consistency, I was there again, not long ago, thanks to a horrific divorce situation.  So I had a Come-to-Jesus meeting with myself because if I was tired of being exhausted, feeling squishy where I once had muscle definition, my guts being a full on mess, and floating in and out of depression . . . well, the only one who could make it better was me.  In order to start making the changes I needed to make to FEEL better, I had to be brutally honest with myself.  And if you've never done that, I'm here to tell you that it's one of the hardest things you'll ever do.  It's easy to go around blaming the dreary weather, the bad relationship, the job you hate, the busy mom life, the demanding job, your genetic make up, or whatever other life circumstances you're dealing with.  It's easy because that means that YOU are not responsible for your life.  I mean, let's be real!  It SUCKS taking responsibility for our bad choices.

But the GOOD NEWS is that you can ALSO take responsibility for the GOOD CHOICES!


If you're anything like me, you've tried just about every diet out there and you've seen some results but . . .

Even if you've lost (or gained) the weight that you're looking to, what ELSE are you achieving?  If it's a no-carb plan that helped you lose 15lbs, that's great.  And that 15lbs may make you happier with what you see in the mirror, but what about your insides?  Are you getting the proper amount of protein, the right kind of protein?  What about vegetables?  What exactly is a "carb" any way and is there really such a thing as a GOOD carb?

What if you're trying to GAIN weight?  Stuff yourself with pasta and peanut butter sandwiches?

It's all so overwhelming!  Let our trained nutrition specialists help!


We've all heard the glass-half-empty/full analogy.  But what does actually mean?  And more importantly, what does it mean for you and how you treat yourself?

We are all guilty of telling ourselves the most negative things.  When we look in the mirror, we immediately begin to criticize ourselves.  It's human nature and how we've been wired.

What's the first thing you look at when you look in the mirror?  What do you say to yourself every morning?

Think about it, honestly.

I'll wait . . .


Now . . . would you say those things to your BFF?  What would you tell your BFF if he or she said those things about themselves in front of you?

My guess is that you'd tell her (or him) that they're crazy and beautiful and need to stop focusing on the negative.  Am I right?

Start looking at yourself as your own BFF and change the way you talk to yourself!  I know, it's easier said than done!  But like anything else we want to be successful in, it takes practice.  So start practicing today!

Your assignment . . . go look in the mirror and find just ONE THING you love about yourself.  Your eyes?  Good hair day today?  You're growing in your faith journey?  You are a loyal friend?  Achieving success in your career?  Advancing your education?  Patient mom?  Hitting your daily water goal consistently? 

Whatever it is, celebrate it, and start rewiring your brain today!


Can we agree that pretty much everyone wants to be more fit?

In order to start seeing the results you want, you need to ask yourself a few questions.  And we're here to help you ask the RIGHT questions for YOU so that YOU can achieve YOUR goals.

And speaking of goals . . . are you even setting the right goals?  If not, that could be the main reason why you keep falling off the wagon.

Most of us start a fitness routine because of what we want to see in the mirror.  And that's not a bad place to start, but let's dig a little deeper.  What are you ACTUALLY looking to achieve?  And more than that . . . WHY?  What will accomplishing your goal do for you as a Whole? (see what I did there?)


We all want to be more confident, right?

So how do we get there?  Well, let's start by taking a look at the things you're struggling with and the back story behind those struggles.  Our struggles come from somewhere and in order to overcome them, we need to know their origin.

I'll give you a quick example . . . I struggle with lower back issues.  And it took me until I was 43 to figure out why chiropractic visits, massage, yoga, ice/heat, etc weren't working long term.  Those things help ABSOLUTELY!  But my back problems weren't solved using those methods.  Why?  Because I have TERRIBLE posture!!!  And WHY?  Because I developed young and also have struggled with my weight my whole life.  And so for more than 30 years, I've sat, stood, and walked hunched over; attempting to minimize my boobs and belly.  I studied "functional fitness" and thanks to an amazing trainer, I learned what I needed to do to strengthen my core for my particular dysfunction.  Because I have been hiding the areas I'm most self conscious about for almost my entire life, I have to be incredibly aware of my posture at all times and make constant corrections.

And guess what???  When I am aware that I am hunching, correct myself, and walk standing straight up, I feel more confident and it shows!

So what are you struggling with?  What would help YOU to feel more confident so that you can be living your best life?
