No more excuses - let’s go! I’m not going to promise it will be easy - however - if you follow through with my program, your satisfaction is my guarantee. The answer is YES - this is for YOU... and YES you can. Only a handful of slots remain for the FASTer Way starting Monday. See you there. 🚀
Yesterday I was comparing myself to others. I got upset. Had to wonder why I decided to do that to myself when I’m absolutely happy where I am in life, who I am, who I’m with and what I’m doing. I would not trade my position in life with anyone else. Yet here we are... playing the comparison game. We all do it, but it’s important to try and set aside those feelings when they hold no value, no truth or bearing on me as an individual. .
When you find yourself in that position try and remind yourself of the positives and shift your mindset. I don’t want the life of other people yet there I was kind of wishing I did. Silly really. Timing and life are unique to each of us. Trust the timing. ❤️

Carbs are delicious, help fuel workouts, support recovery, and assist in digestion via fiber. They’re also an important piece for optimal thyroid function and happy hormones.
When it comes to food planning, consider aiming for 400-600g (4-6 heaping cups) in vegetables, 100-200g (1-2 cups) in fruits.
THEN filling the remainder with carbohydrates like rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, rice cakes, etc each day.
A good litmus test when shopping Prioritize high-quality products with minimal ingredients.
If the ingredient list has more than 10-15 items or is full of tons of gums, fillers, and super-processed junk, may not be the best option to put in our belly (:
If eating 400-500c daily, it can be uncomfortable trying to fill that solely with stuff like rice and potatoes.
Not a bad idea to also mix in some quicker/easier-to-digest choices, such as instant oats, high-quality breakfast cereal, etc. We’re all about that 80/20 or 90/10 life!

There are some shitty trainers out there😡😡
I grew up being healthy and fit. I gained weight during a time after college.. I sometimes say I gained the freshmen 15-20 a few years late. When I got back into fitness and especially weight lifting I had a bad trainer that sticks in my mind.
I met him and the literal first thing he said to me was: “Don’t eat after 6 pm and start taking a fiber supplement”.
Here’s the thing he didn’t know because he didn’t ask anything about me: I was a full vegetarian at the time and got a TON of fiber. I was a college student and stayed up till 12-1 every night so that’s kinda a long time to go without eating.. .
I actually challenged him on those things and I remember him not really knowing what to say. I had previously studied exercise science and already had my yoga teacher cert, I wasn’t a noob to fitness even tho I was currently out of shape.
He also told me later into working with him (which I did for a few sessions unfortunately) to avoid spinach because it causes inflammation, and to push through knee pain I was having. 🤔🤔 That was when I stopped working with him.
Coaches and trainers should ALWAYS ask more questions about you in the beginning. How can I help you if I don’t currently know what you’re doing! If they don’t ask what your current habits are, what injuries you have, how long it’s been since you’ve worked out, why you want to lose weight, is weight loss even your goal, I could go on. There’s lots of questions I ask before I start working with someone.
If you have a trainer or coach giving you instructions without asking anything about you first OR if you have a coach telling you to cut out entire food groups or only eat during certain hours, you may need a new coach.
Above all, listen to your intuition. If a relationship with a coach or trainer doesn’t feel right, listen to that.

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS
With my clients, one area I like to focus on is meal composition.
Although there are a multitude of reasons why someone could be experiencing low energy issues, it may originate from what they eat (or don't eat) at breakfast.
As a basic guideline, breakfast should be treated like any other meal in the day:
🍖 1 protein
🍞 1 carb
🥒 1-2 veggies and/or fruit
🥑 1 fat
This encourages a wide variety of nutrients and adequate fuel to start your day.
You don't need to get fancy, but you do need to experiment with what works best for you.
My breakfast journey in a nutshell -->
Age 5-18 = cereal & milk
Age 19-20 = oatmeal with nut butter
Age 21-22 = veggie omelette with fruit + toast or waffle

When in KC... I built my days macros around this meal 😂 Burnt ends are soo delicious and so worth it. Solid story: I was texting a friend while I was out there and he said he could totally fuck up a pulled pork sandwich. Of course I had to make his day surprising him when I saw him... tragic part was I really wanted to bring him my jalapeño cornbread with honey butter. I left it on the crew van! 😭 I told him my failed plan and guess what this ninja does. Totally makes us a killer jalapeño cornbread with cinnamon honey butter. Swear it’s better that what KC sold me. I was a very happy lady.
