Life is beautiful and every breath you take, every second of every should be used to live fully and feel alive. What that means is that if you don't like what you're doing, what you are not reaching, who you are with or what you life looks like, you need to change it. The hardest, scariest thing in the world is change. So many of us are resistant to it. But if your life isn't what you want it to be, why wouldn't you want change?
What if you wake up one morning, 10 years from now still not having done that thing that makes you feel alive, then resistance is stronger than you. Or is it? Sometimes it takes something scary and crazy to stare us in the face to make us do what we have always wanted.Read More

Your relationship with your food is like a metaphor for your life. I love the quote "the way you do anything is the way you do everything". And I think it is so true. It relates to much more than food. How do you do things? What is spinning around in your head when your thoughts are not consumed by the daily tasks of work? The rushing around, the anxiety, the need to be around people. Or the need to be independent. What is it that has control of you?Read More
Take a moment right now and assess what one thing you are working towards, fitness or non fitness related. Where are you starting from? Do you even know how to assess that? Is it time to invest some money in really taking this goal seriously? Health, relationships, careers, personal growth- all journeys of life have the same basis. One pattern is usually an ironic metaphor for another. Food for thought .Read More
Quick, low carb breakfasts are hard to come by without a decent amount of meal prep. The next best choice to eggs, avocado and veggies is going to be a thick, nutrient dense smoothie that is easy, delicious and fast to prepare.
