THE FEAR OF WEIGHT GAIN

A lot of people ask me about gaining weight during pregnancy. They want to know how I feel about it. Or what I think about it. And while I don’t love that this seems to be the number one issue women have with being pregnant, I’m going to make one post about it. You have not seen me post a single weight on my weekly pregnancy updates. That is because it is NOT important for you to know or honestly, even for me to know. My goal with my posts is to update you on my mindset, my symptoms, my progress...

WHY I DON’T BINGE ON PB & CEREAL ANYMORE

At the risk of sounding redundant, I have to blog on this topic today. It’s feeding off my recent Halloween post a little, but it’s also one of the issues I hear most with clients. “I can’t keep x in the house because I’ll eat it all at once.” Maybe it’s chips. Or its Oreos. Or bagels.  For me, it was my favorite cereals, peanut butter, and anything I baked. But, not anymore. Look, we all have those foods we love that we would generally eat more than usual of. And guess what? You still might. Ho...

THE BEST IS YET TO BE

I’m going to quote a role model/friend of mine, Lindsay Messina, who quoted another role model of mine, Lori Harder, when saying, “Sometimes we don’t want to close a chapter in our lives because it was soooo good. But that’s what’s holding us back from starting something even greater.” That’s how I feel for many reasons right now. First, as you may have seen, we moved the gym this week. Nothing was WRONG or BAD with where we were. It just had served its purpose. We saw new opportunity and excite...

SO YOU OVERATE YESTERDAY?? HOW TO HANDLE A FOOD HANGOVER

So you overate yesterday.  For whatever reason, it doesn’t really matter.  Overeating happens and it looks different for everybody.  But, I’m sure you experienced at least one of these things… Maybe you slept terribly after it. Maybe you woke up super thirsty or with a bad taste in your mouth. Maybe you feel puffier than the Michelin Man.  Your joints might ache. Your rings might not fit.  The definition you saw in your abs yesterday morning may resemble more of a soft pillow t...

ONE OF MY TIPS FOR ATTAINING FOOD AND FITNESS BALANCE INSTEAD OF OBSESSION.

ONE OF MY TIPS FOR ATTAINING FOOD AND FITNESS BALANCE INSTEAD OF OBSESSION. ‼️NEWSFLASH. You cannot go full steam ahead everyday. You also will never eat perfectly everyday. How many of you feel like a failure if you’re workout isn’t “up to par?” How many of you struggle to do a lower intensity workout? To get the extra hour of sleep instead of a 4:30am workout? To take a rest day? To know a leisurely walk is ok as your only form of exercise for a day? To not throw in the towel after a “bad” mea...

IS THERE ROOM TO BE FIT AND A FOODIE IN THIS LIFE?

Is there room to be fit and be a foodie in this life?!? …On the contrary my friends. I think the ultimate fit person is one can eat fun foods sometimes and not have it derail them. Not have it consume them. Not have it make them instantly plot and plan how to make room for it, burn it off, or start a diet tomorrow while also, and most importantly not beating themselves up for it. I also think the socially defined “fit person” who allows none of these fun foods ever is not only a miserable...

THE TROUBLE WITH LABELS – Diet Edition

THE TROUBLE WITH LABELS… Diet edition. Gone are the days my podcast feed consisted of weight loss, fad diets, the best workouts, and cleanses. When I defined myself by my eating habits and body type. I recently started to label myself an intuitive eater with a twist. I used to label myself a lot of things: a competitive gymnast. Anorexic. Bulky. Manly. A scholar athlete. A college basketball player. A compulsive exerciser. An overeater.  A binge eater. A yo-yo dieter. A yes-girl. A teacher...

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE…

9:00 pm we started watching I CAN ONLY IMAGINE. Emotional AF. I was laying on my right side w my head on Dave and felt something toward my right side. I put my hand on it and questioned it a couple times. After not feeling it for a little bit, I sat up. I sat there bawling hard over the movie when he forgave his dad for his abusive childhood. When they made up. When he wrote in his journal- the dad I always wanted is finally here and he is leaving me–  I couldn’t stop crying. Dave too. The...
