Never give up on your dreams

By |October 5th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

This quote was shared by my gym a few weeks ago: “Never give up on a dream based on the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” It really got me thinking…

We are in a culture of instant gratification: Netflix on demand, same-day delivery, information at our finger tips.

We are being highly influenced by this type of messaging: 30 days to 6 pack abs, 30 minute abs, 4 weeks to […]

New Body Ethic

By |September 29th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I’m tired of the fitness industry telling us that failure to diet and exercise stems from a lack of personal responsibility.

… tired of seeing quotes like this being posted:
“Excuses don’t burn calories”
“Nobody cares about your excuses. It’s your butt, you move it”
“Pain is weakness leaving the body”

… tired of seeing pictures of photoshopped half naked people and 6 packs that are supposedly “motivating”.

Do you realize the damage this messaging and these photos are causing?? “All these […]

By |September 29th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Do you ever feel like all the hard work you’re putting in toward achieving your goals is not amounting to anything?

I have felt like this all week… I’ve been super unhappy with my progress at the gym, and feeling unhappy with the way I look. I have noticed myself thinking: “There’s *nothing* more I can possibly do! Why aren’t I getting stronger? Why don’t I look like her?”

When things feel like they aren’t moving I […]

By |September 7th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

If you have any specific goals like fat loss, improving athletic performance (i.e. improve speed, improve strength), training for a competition, or want to gain mass, you need to know how much protein, fat, and carbohydrates you SHOULD be consuming and how much you ARE consuming.

Just like you need a specific training plan to improve at any sport, you need a plan for your nutrition to achieve your goals.

First step is figuring out how much […]

Use carbs to help you reach your goals

By |July 15th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Carbs: hate them or love them? Instead, you should be thinking “how can I best use carbs to achieve my goals”?

Most people have heard the basics… Eat carbs, blood sugar rises, insulin rises, insulin pushes carbs into cells for energy.

What do you need to know? Insulin is ANABOLIC- meaning it likes to build stuff- builds muscle mass, builds fat mass, and stores glycogen. Therefore, it can be extremely useful to elevate your insulin levels at […]

Monday no one feels like cooking… So sharing a super easy recipe with you today! I love stir frys because they are SO simple, and a great way to get tons of vegetables, and a variety of them!

Spice blend:1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika
