Happy last-week-of-2015! I hope you all had an amazing holiday. I know a lot of us are planning our new year’s resolutions already.

How Do You Know When You’re Done?

Hi friends! Part of what I do as a coach is lead online fitness accountability groups. Some people choose to do one group for about a month and then stop. Others continue to join challenge groups to stay on track with their goals. One of my friends who has done a few groups recently asked […]

How to Eat Out WITHOUT Overindulging!

I talk a lot about good nutrition, clean eating, and healthy recipes, but let’s be real… I also drink beer, eat pizza, and go out to restaurants where I almost NEVER order a salad! Someone once gave me this piece of advice: What you do 80% of the time matters much more than what you […]
