Why You Should take Progress Pictures on your Fitness Journey

So you’ve started a new diet and exercise program. You keep weighing yourself but there are no changes on the scale. However, everyone keeps telling you that you look amazing! Your face is thinner, your legs are leaner and your body is just smoking. You shrug your shoulders and say “thank you” or “thanks, I’m trying”. The truth is that you really don’t believe what people are telling you and keep feeling frustrated. You’re feeling so overwhelmed with frustration that you decided to stop at the golden arches on your way home from work and eat away your sorrows!

Should I Eat Healthy on the Holidays?

I used to go all out on Thanksgiving, like 2-3 plates all out! However, I would feel sick the rest of the day and I wouldn't’’t really even get to enjoy it. That is not fun either. Instead I serve myself a little bit of everything and sit down and talk to those around me.

I prefer not to do that just so I won’t feel sick after and get to enjoy the rest of my night and be able to rest up for BLACK FRIDAY

When is the best time to workout?

I get asked this question a lot, by friends, family, clients , etc. Basically everyone is intrigued by this question. I think it's partially because everyone is looking for an easy fix to losing weight and getting healthy.

There’s just something about cold temperatures and a nice big bowl of Mac n’ cheese or a nice warm cup of chili that brings the whole Netflix n Chill to a whole new level. Winter months also mean a bit more fluff in the trunk.I mean if the bears do it….shouldn’t that be normal?

Tenergy Vitalis: Body Fat Scale

You are not alone. Many of my clients come to me with some sort of trauma they’ve had with the weight scale. There is a 50/50 chance that they NEVER use that dreaded object. Some of them hide it away in the bathroom closet collecting dust and occasionally let it catch some light when they want to weigh luggage to prevent that $50 “overweight” fee.
