There are things you keep saying you want to do, yet whenever you actually have time for them, you don’t feel like it anymore-- you don’t have the energy.
Your back is achy. You’re wiped. Microwaving dinner might as well be climbing Mount Everest.
Your body feels reminiscent of the limp noodles you tossed in the microwave. Even when work is good, the hours you spend slumped over the steering wheel -- your head pounding from the stress of traffic -- sucks the life out of you.
It’s much easier to crush some episodes of Bob’s Burgers on Netflix than it is to crack into a book, cook healthy food...

You’ve probably heard of carbs, fats, and proteins AKA macronutrients.
A basic understanding of macronutrients is necessary because it’ll help you make healthy, informed dietary decisions that support your fitness goals, be it leaning out, building muscle, or living a longer, healthier life.
No single macronutrient is responsible for obesity. Fortunately, there’s no need to ever eliminate any one macronutrient entirely. In this post I’ll explain why and what to do instead.
Each macronutrient (macro for short) has a different primary function crucial for boosting performance, health, and leann...

I had a client named Sarah who traveled a lot for work.
At least once a month. Oftentimes more.
Yet, she still built tons of definition in her arms, her butt got bigger, and she had more muscle tone overall, which is awesome because those were her goals. She crushed it.
Oh yeah, she also had a toddler. Side note: Her kid was freakin’ adorable and one time came in and started trying to copy her mom doing deadbugs. Super adorbz. But I digress. Point is, she had a lot of responsibilities.
So how did she do it? How did she reach her goals with so much going on?
I’m going to tell you how she d...

Why 11 lbs and not 10?
You have a reason, probably many reasons, why you want to lose weight. What drew you to that specific number, 10 that is?
Just some food for thought, as I discuss what you need to know to lose weight, whether it’s 5 lbs, 10 lbs, or 22.7 lbs :)
Whatever you do the most creates the greatest impact. Whether it’s
listening to Taylor Swift slamming beers with your bros, or eating salads, whatever you do the most will have the most noticeable impact on your physique.
No one ever gained 5 lbs from one pizza and no one ever lost 5lbs from o...

Long story short, because these exercises use tons of muscle they burn more calories and crank up your metabolism much more than "isolation" exercises like sit-ups or bicep curls.
These 4 crucial exercises are crucial because:

I wrote this article because I want to make your life easier. Because I know how frustrating, confusing, and hard it can to put tons of effort into something with no result.
I'm also giving you a free gift at the end of this article by the way :)
Unfortunately, hard work and progress aren’t a 1-to-1 relationship. This makes it all too easy to get frustrated with stalled progress--the task begins to feel hopeless.

Knowledge has little to do with how fit you are. In fact, much of how I help my online clients is helping them stop thinking so much to get some clarity on this fitness stuff.
And admittedly, fitness can be really complicated. This post will give you some strategies to help you not let your over-thinking tendencies slow your actions, or your progress.
Health and fitness is hard enough as it is.
Overthinking is a problem because of the “over” part. Overthinking means you’re not acting, or you’re acting in a frazzled confused way, not in the consistent, steadfast, resilient way you need to.

Fat loss is a lot like pushing your Ford Contour to the auto shop down the street.
Let me tell you a story that is definitely in no way based on my own experiences:
Your car has had problems for while. You put off having it looked at. It wasn’t necessary at the time. You were getting along, always nervous about driving of course, but still getting from point A to point B.
It finally broke down. You’re freaking out.
You’re panicking; it feels urgent. You’re wishing you bought a Civic, or that you took it to the shop before this happened. You’re stressed and kicking yourself for it.
Now, you ...

Any diet that puts you in a caloric deficit will promote weight loss.
A caloric Whozawhatsit???!!?!
A caloric deficit means you eat less calories than you burn. Achieve a caloric deficit day-in day-out for long enough and the number on the scale starts to drop.
People fail at fat loss because they don’t stick with our new, healthy resolutions. They either deliberately throw in the towel, or they weren’t actually following the diet to begin with.
My personal slant is most shouldn’t even mess with diets. It's more effective (not to mention faster) to practice healthy habits that promote weigh...
