One of my greatest frustrations when it comes to healthy eating is seeing people focus solely on elimination. At some point between the Atkins and Paleo diet, we cached that everyone should have a scroll of foods on their "Do Not Eat" list. "No carbs, no fat, only fresh produce, and vegan protein", has all of a sudden become the precedent for how serious we are about eating clean.Read More
You would never go scuba diving without a wet suit and you wouldn't walk into a snowstorm without boots. Yet on any given day at the gym, I am bound to see at least one ambitious jogger on a treadmill with flip-flops and jeans on! This post is dedicated to you love, as I wonder how anyone could workout without the appropriate dress?Read More
Changing how you eat can seem like a daunting task, but it is half of the journey to living a healthy lifestyle and achieving your fitness goals. So often I hear of people who consistently go to the gym, but ruin all of their hard work with a burger, piece of cake, or even something as simple as a couple glasses of wine.

These days it seems like no one really knows what's healthy. One week, the news is promoting a miracle diet proven to drive results.

You especially can't follow all the "fitness gurus" on social media for food advice. They often push miracle teas and diet pills that seem to be temporary fixes and a complete waste of your money. These influences all make it really hard to understand what food are actually healthy.Read More
Ever commit to something in advance just to find yourself flaking out the day of? Well duh! All the time!
You have made plans to turn up with your girls just to tell them you aren't feeling it day of. You have created calendar events while you were feeling super social, then became a no show after realizing lying on your couch sounds so much better. But it's not like you didn't try though, you really did.
You tried to give yourself 5 minutes to rest and reenergize, but it didn't work. You tried doing a roll call to see if attendees were more interesting than binge watching Michael Bae Jordan, but sadly concluded they were not. Despite all of your "efforts" your mind still managed to take over and convince you that you are unable to fulfill on your commitment. You enter an intense internal debate about how you are "not in the mood", "too tired", "booked solid", or "fulfilling another obligation" to help justify not going out.Read More
