    Motivational Monday's (11/11/19) Topic: Balance in our body

    Good morning and happy Veterans Day all! We all know that our diet/nutrition plays a vital role in a healthy body. Point blank, it is the initial reason that most people come to me looking to achieve their goals, whatever they may look like! Aesthetic, athletic or both! HOWEVER, we so so SO often forget, overlook or are simply naïve to how critical the role that different types of stressors play, in providing the much needed “balance” or a happy level of "homeostasis" within one’s body. In other words; How does “physical, chemical, and emotional” stress affect my body and keep me from getting to my desired physique and/or performance goals? And how can ....

    Thoughts on new Netflix Documentary, “The Game Changers” – by Henry Toraño

    “The Game Changers” has spiked quite a bit of interest lately on the possibility of adopting a plant based diet. As many of you know, I have vehemently opposed this idea. I’ve read a good number of books, looked at studies, talked to fitness professionals, and consulted with functional doctors surrounding the idea and EVERY TIME it’s the same consensus: Humans need ample quantities and variety of vegetables as well as good quality animal protein sources to support performance and optimal health (they’re not the same, but in this case, the same applies to both). This documentary is no different. Here’s a couple points to consider: 1. James Wilkes ....

    Motivational Monday's (10/21/19) Topic: HYDRATION

    Happy Monday beautiful people, HYDRATION. Yep, like I haven’t run over this dead horse 80 times in the past with each one of you already. We are going to run over it, yet again. Just in case… SO. Just because it’s getting cooler and we may not be sweating as much while we’re outside, doesn’t mean we can’t get dehydrated in the fall/winter seasons too! Beginning stages of dehydration can make you feel a little lethargic, may cause headaches, cause a feeling of “hunger” yet it’s thirst, dry skin, chapped lips, and constipation. Water plays a role in metabolism, cellular membrane function, regulating our body temperature (sweating ....

    Motivational Monday's (10/14/19) Topic: "dieting”

    Happy Monday my lovely people! Get ready for a tangent ya’ll! Just wait, it will be worth it, I promise. :) Most of you think I hate the word “diet”. Not true. I do not encourage using the phrase “dieting” or “going on a diet”. Why? Because it simply implies that you are going to start something and then stop….do we see the problem here? Not only do most people go into “dieting” with a head space full of self-hate and ridicule (which is a whole another important subject on its own) but even further, most of us go into a very ill balanced, unsustainable way of approaching a new “diet” or way of feeding our ....

    Motivational Monday's (9/23/19) Topic: Time Management

    Hellloooo and happy Mondayto you! I have a question for everyone today… Take a minute to think about your answer before continuing to read this (maybe writing down an idea or two). How do you use your “time management skills” to help you lead a healthy lifestyle?

    When most of us think about health, we often think of the facts
    — what vitamins do I need? How much protein should I be eating? For most questions of this nature, we can simply research the answers or seek out individual advice from a professional (aka ME). BUT what happens once YOU have the facts? For most, putting these facts into practice is undoubtedly the hardest part. I have ....

  • Motivational Monday's (9/9/19) Topic: Part 2 - Macro Nutrient

    Motivational Monday's (9/9/19) Topic: Part 2 - Macro Nutrient

    Hello and Happy Monday lovelies! Today my friends, we talk Part 2, in our “Macro” Nutrient Series! Today’s Macro – Carbohydrates! **If you missed Part 1 on “Fats” I will link it here for you to go back and review, DO IT! Click Here From my perspective, consumption of all three macronutrients – protein, fat, and carbohydrates – get taken to extremes when it comes to our health. However, all three macronutrients are incredibly important and vital to our health. With that said, far too often you hear extreme examples of macronutrient consumption like no-carb and high-carb diets, both of which have no middle ground, little flexibility, ....

    Motivational Monday's (8/12/19) "wellness"

    HappyMonday my lovelies! In the last couple of months, I have been doing tons of research surrounding the true meaning of “wellness”, for myself and for those who come to me in need of finding the same for themselves. I have found that from having a tiny moment of clarity every time you stress and want to revert to a coping mechanism, to chewing your food to improve digestion, being mindful of the way you see and experience things can help you succeed in leading a healthy lifestyle. As we all know, none of us are the same, and we all have different motivations and incentives that drive us. Today I would like to explore some “wellness” practices that I have ....

    Motivational Monday's (8/5/19) Topic: Listing to our body.

    Happy Monday everyone! Listen, did you hear that? Its your body talking. Yeah that’s right, I am cheezy and I am 150% ok with that. <3 Today my friends, we are going to discuss the nitty gritty of when I say, “we need to learn to love & listen to our bodies”. How do we know we are doing this right? What are my hunger cues? Where do they come from? And how do I know if I am hungry, thirsty, fatigued or what?!? Ok, ok, stop shouting! Let’s talk about it! As we all should now know, there is no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to “healthy” living. There isn’t a cure-all or magic diet, either. The secret is in getting to know your ....

    Motivational Monday's (7/29/19) - Simple is better...

    Good morning everyone! Diving right in! I had a really really nice "shopping the rim" grocery haul experience with myself this weekend that got me thinking a lot about optimizing dietary results while considering the actualization & reality surrounding optimizing said diet during a clients brand-new experience and outlook on food like this one. When it comes to shopping, cooking, prepping and eating nutrient dense meals, SIMPLE is just BETTER sometimes (or most times). Especially, if you are, like most of us, running around with your ass on fire most days during the week (raise your hand if this is you), it probably is. As a lifestyle & nutrition coach, it got my ....
