Trust Your Struggle

Life is a combination of every emotion under the sun.

We live for the moments of happiness, joy, excitement, and all of the wonderful things that energize us, inspire us, and make us feel complete.

But what about the tough stuff?

Broken relationships, body disappointment, poor health and disease, financial struggles…

We believe that some of the most powerful growth experiences of our lives will always come from our struggles.

We won’t necessarily appreciate that struggle in the moment. In fact, we might hate it and wonder why something so awful is happening to us.

But there’s a lesson and opportunity for growth under it all.

When you feel these intense struggles throughout your life remember…

…Thousands or millions of...

Say WHAT!?!?

But it’s really true that you can eat what you want and still have the body you desire!

Here’s the catch though…

You can eat whatever you want BUT NOT whenever you want and however much you want.

Yes, we’re talking about the concept of moderation.

It’s not exciting or sexy, but it works…far more than any pills and powders you can swallow.

We think successful moderation comes down to a few things:

  • Limiting your portions – 1-2 slices of pizza is fine. Half the pizza isn’t!
  • Making sure it’s worth it – if you’re going to eat less than optimal foods, just make sure it’s out of joy and fulfillment because that food is so amazing –...

Believe In Yourself

There’s such a strong message in the world about what your body should look like, and it can create an unimaginable heaviness inside of us and chronic feelings about not being good enough.

Perhaps you’ve experienced this?

I know I have. And you might be thinking – “But you’re a fitness professional! How is that possible?”

Oh, but it is! The pressure and the standard is very high in my industry, so believe it or not, I absolutely relate to what you might be experiencing.

And I want to introduce this idea that brings me so much peace…

It’s the idea of coming home to your body and to yourself.

It’s where you honor, nourish, love, and appreciate the body you’ve been given.

It’s where you actively and regularly identify things about...

You can’t control everything that happens around you.

But you can control you.

You can control how you respond to things.

And the current state of your health and body are absolutely the result of the decisions you’ve made (barring certain illnesses and conditions).

We can blame the kids.

We can blame work.

We can blame the days for not having more hours in them.

But the truth is, you’ve ended up here, in this state at this moment, as a result of your choices.

Neutral choices do not exist.

Every food makes you healthier or unhealthier.

Every time you choose to lift a weight or take a step…or not…makes you healthier or unhealthier.

What would it look like for you to change just 1% of your daily habits, behaviors or thoughts?

What's the impact of 1% change?

If you were flying an airplane and you flew off course by just 1%, there is a great chance you'd end up on another continent, let alone in the place you intended to be.

The same thing goes for your health habits. If you change just 1% of your behavior, it can add up to big results.

There are no neutral choices in life. Every choice you make every day puts you on the curve of achieving your goals and finding success or further from the goal.

But what does 1% change look like? It could be sleeping 1% longer each night (just a few minutes), eating half the cookie instead of the entire thing, adding 1 minute of high...

Despite what many people in the business world are teaching, there is a very simple way to move your business and your life forward.

It's not writing to-do lists, creating a strategic plan or, some other complex thing.

It's simple, really.

It's action.

It's literally taking one step in the right direction...followed by another and then another.

And sometimes this requires experimenting with totally new actions if previous ones weren't working.

When we overcomplicate things, we get ourselves stuck. We find ourselves frozen, unable to take action.

We overwhelm ourselves with the big picture and suddenly it all just feels out of reach.

If you're feeling this right now, stop and ask yourself -...

It’s no secret that sugar is bad for us. It feeds disease, impacts your brain, messes with your energy, and makes people fat. It rots your teeth and can affect your skin.

Aside from the short bursts of energy it gives and the way it sets off the pleasure sensors in your brain, there are really no good things about consuming sugar.

But I’m not here to tell you to stop eating it.

Because seriously… you’re not going to and neither am I.

Not only is sugar added to far more foods than you even realize, but it’s also delicious.

And if you know me at all, you know I’m about making fitness and health as easy as possible.

If I tell you to stop having sugar, it’s all you’re going to think about (like any other food you’ve ever tried to eliminate from your...

You know…so many people enter each new year thinking “This is it! This is MY year!”

But it’s really not about your year.

It’s about the fact that it’s all yours. Every year, every week, every day, and every moment.

I’ve seen so many memes shared on social media over the last couple of months that imply people are so ready to be done with 2018 because surely 2019 will bring something better.

And those memes appear every single year. Coincidence?

Here’s the deal: You can step up, take control, and shift the course of your life literally at any moment you choose, whether January 1, April 22, or October 19.

So, if you never want to look back with regret on the actions you should have taken or how far along you’d be if you just acted...

What’s the Big Deal about Carbs?

Starchy carbs get so much attention when it comes to nutrition conversations because they are the biggest double-edged sword our bodies have to deal with. On one hand, all of our energy in the body comes from glucose molecules (carbs in their basic sugar form) but on the other, our bodies weren’t designed to be surrounded by so many readily available carbs.

So when our body does get an onslaught of starchy carbs (usually from refined sugars in all of our indulgence foods or simple carbs found in anything baked with flour), it handles them by releasing insulin. Insulin is responsible for a lot of important functions in the body, but by design, it is a storage hormone. So instead of signaling our body to burn fat, our bodies...
