The Most Valuable Lesson

Sep 03, 2019
I love what I do.
 
I get the privilege of helping women (and a few men) rediscover who they really are. I get to use simple strategies that powerfully shift their health, their weight and I get the honor of seeing them re-engage with life. What could be better?
 
Today, I want to share an "insider secret" with you.
 
When it comes to changing you health, weight and lifestyle, there is one lesson that I repeatedly hear from my clients is "the most valuable lesson," they learn from me.
 
Can you guess what the lesson is?
 
It's not how to deadlift properly.
It's not how to stop cravings.
It's not even how to lose weight.
 
The most valuable lesson my clients learn is everything we put into our bodies directly affects our health, our weight, our energy and our outlook on life.
 
It's a simple lesson, but not an easy lesson to assimilate into our lives.
 
We like to think that what we eat, drink, read,...

Where Do You Begin?

When thinking about starting to make changes to your nutrition and lifestyle, do you feel like the toddler in this pic?

You're right. The list is too big. The list is the equivalent of the steps in front of this toddler. He's looking at the first step. He's looking long and hard at that first step. He almost doesn't see the other steps.
 
Here's what he doesn't know...and what you may not realize. Any move he makes to get onto that first step is moving him forward and up. Whether he stays focused on that single step in front of him or he looks all the way to the top...

Wine and Women

Jun 27, 2019
I had a conversation with a friend today about wine. She uses it daily (only a glass or two) every night when she comes home from work at her super high-stress job. She also wants to lose weight (specifically around her mid-section).
 
This is not the first time I've had this conversation. I typically work with women and this is a very common conversation.
 
Here's the simple answer that many trainers give and expect their clients to simply adhere to: If you want to lose the weight, give up the wine.
 
Here are the problems with that advice.
  1. You already know that.
  2. You're not willing/able to follow the advice. I don't mean you're an alcoholic. I mean you LIKE your wine and you don't have another mechanism readily available to help you cope with stress.
  3. You already know that. You're looking for a solution to a problem that you may not be ready to solve, but by asking the question you feel like you're making progress...and in some small way, you...
