Do you Eat to Workout, or Workout to Eat?

Breaking free from food rules

“There is no such thing as good or bad food. There is simply food that moves us towards our goal, and food that moves us away.”  Truth!

Food is neither good nor bad, it’s just food. All food has calories and macro and micronutrients. All food is derived from nature. It’s the meaning we place on it which makes it good or bad. And most of the meaning we place on food is not objective, it’s based on our subjective feeling about it, which comes from rules we learned during childhood, most of which are derived from fear.

Think about it. How many times where you punished or scolded for eating something that was “bad” for you? Did the adult who punished you ever take the time to explain why it was bad? Probably not. That’s because when we feel the urge to punish someone, it’s because seeing them do that behavior has triggered a bad feeling in us, unconsciously. So, we have the urge to stop them from doing the behavior so that our bad feeling can go away. I correct you outwardly, as I correct myself inwardly.

Our rules around food are learned from our parents, whose rules were learned from their parents. How we determine which food is bad and which is good, usually comes from how we were punished as a child. When we are punished for eating too much sugar for example, we learn that sugar is bad. So, when we eat it as adults, the moment of pleasure is very quickly replaced by a feeling of guilt or shame. Most of this behavior is unconscious. But food becomes good or bad based on how it makes us feel. Not on an objective meaning that is measurable in reality.

So, what would be a better way to view food? Given that all food has calories and macros, the only way we could label food good or bad is if it moves us towards or away from our goal. If I have a goal of eating 1800 calories per day to burn body fat for my wedding, and I choose to eat a pizza that pushes my calorie intake to 2200 for the day, then I could label that pizza as bad because it moved me away from my goal. Similarly, if I choose to eat six pieces of highly nutritious fruit, and that choice pushes me to eat 2000 calories that day, that fruit would also be bad. It’s not the food that is bad, it’s whether or not the choice to eat it moves you towards or away from your goal.

The takeaway? If you’re not working towards a measurable goal, food is neither good nor bad, it’s just food. I stopped binging when I realized I didn’t need rules around food, I needed a measurable, objective goal to work towards. Without it, I was just satiating myself with punishment and reward, believing it was helping me to control my behavior (it wasn’t by the way). To move on in life you need to stop measuring success based on how you feel, and start measuring on whether you’re moving towards or away from your goals.

Do this, and watch how your relationship with food changes.

What are the goals you are working towards? 

Your Perfect Life!

Your perfect life.

You ever take 15 minutes and sit down and write out what your perfect life looks like?

Just by yourself.

No one looking over your shoulder.

No one judging.

Not your friends.

Not your parents.

Not your significant other.

Not your coworkers.

Not your boss.

Think about what your perfect day looks like.

What time are you waking up?

What are you doing after that? And after that?

What are you working on?

Who are you spending time with?

How are you spending that time?

Then think about what your perfect year looks like?

Are you travelling? Where? Why? With who?

What else are you doing?

What are your priorities?

When you do this exercise you might find that you are VERY far away from your ideal day and ideal life.

That’s okay.

Perfectly normal.

Here’s the trick.

The hack.

The ninja tip.

In looking at your perfect scenario, find the ONE thing that is the easiest to work into your life right now.

THAT is your number one goal.

Don’t look for reasons why you can’t do it.

Find a way.

In 6 months or a year you’ll be significantly closer to that vision, and your life will be better than it’s ever been.

Let’s Go!

Are You Ready?

Are you ready?

Living in breakthrough means that you are constantly creating new beliefs.

I want to body of my dreams.  I want to look and feel better.  I can do hard things.

This is sustained growth.

It may seem difficult, but it will create massive results.

I don’t have to have that extra glass of wine or that desert after my dinner.

You can’t negotiate with it.

You have to dive in. Be committed.

Commit to living in what WILL BE, from what you WILL DO.

Choose the hard thing. It’s just a decision.

Don’t wait.

Implementing leads to innovating.

Procrastinating leads to wondering.

You don’t want to wonder. You want to LEAD.

You ARE a thought leader.

Your body is ready.

And your mind is waiting for you to make the decision that leads to breakthrough.

Make the changes TODAY! 

Yes, You Can!

Your journey can begin today, as soon as you reach out to me to get the process started.

Run Your Own Race!

We’re all running different races.

Remember that.

No matter what you are trying to do in life.






The best you can do is just a little bit better than you did yesterday.

But what most of us do is look at the person next to us.

The one that appears to be where we want to be, and lament as to why we can’t get there faster.

The fact is, that person probably started way before you, had more resources than you, was more talented than you, or maybe is even willing to cheat more than you to get there.

Who knows?

Who cares?

And that’s the point.

It doesn’t matter.

You’re not competing against them.

You’re competing against you.

Don’t ignore those in front of you, as they can teach you how to to get where you want to go.

Just don’t compare yourself to them.

Remember, you’re running your own race.

The One Two Punch for Success: Authenticity and Alignment

The One Two Punch for Success: Authenticity and Alignment

Have you ever felt as if you are beating your head against a wall? You repeatedly try to reach a goal but you never seem to achieve it. Instead, you are struggling rather than moving forward and achieving your goals with grace and ease.

You are not alone. The struggle to move from what we don’t want to what we do want is, unfortunately, a fundamental struggle for many individuals. Believe it or not, it is very common for people to struggle against what they want and to actively limit their good. In order to have what you want you must be willing to end the struggle and move into action. Your success is dependent on your ability to reach your goals and achieve.

The easiest way to move from “stuck” into action without struggle is to be authentic and to be in alignment with your authenticity. Authenticity means that you are connected to your core and that your desires are a true reflection of your inner self and soul.

Alignment means that your entire being is in agreement with the goal you want to achieve. For example, you come home from work one evening and you are very tired. But this evening is your work-out night. You sit on the couch and actually have to talk yourself into getting into your gym clothes and heading off to the gym. What you did in convincing part of yourself to go to the gym when it really wanted to rest on the couch is called alignment. You got yourself into alignment with the idea and intention of going to the gym no matter how tired a part of you felt. To end struggle and successfully achieve goals, all parts of you must work together for manifestation. That means all bodies, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, must be in agreement concerning a goal. There can be no doubts, limiting beliefs or attachments. The following describes a process you can use to do an authenticity check concerning your goals and bring yourself into alignment with your goals.

Step One: Sit quietly – create a peaceful, serene and nurturing space for yourself. It must be a space where you feel comfortable and secure. Spend several minutes in quiet and inner reflection upon your goal. Have paper and pen handy.

Step Two: The Authenticity Check: Ask within if this goal is the appropriate goal for you to achieve at this time. If the answer is yes, skip to the next step. If the answer is no, ask what a more appropriate goal would be for you right now.

By asking this question, you move from being ruled by the needs of the mind (survival issues) and begin to access the soul within. You leave behind the petty desires of the ego and move into realizing the desires of the soul. As a result, your goals become truer and more authentic.

Write down the response you receive. If you need additional clarity concerning the response, ask for it. Keep asking within until you feel complete.

Step Three: Alignment. Once you have a defined and authentic goal, it is time to create alignment. Remain in your space of quiet and comfort; ask to speak to your mental body. (You will repeat step Three with each of the bodies) Ask your mental body if it is willing to be in alignment with you goal. The purpose of this question is to uncover any blocks or limitations that reside in the mental body concerning the goal. If the answer is yes, proceed to the next body: physical, spiritual and emotional.

If the answer is no, simply begin a conversation with this part of you. Some questions to begin with are: Why are you not willing to be in alignment with this goal? What would it take for you to be in alignment with this goal? When a part is not willing to be in alignment with an authentic goal, the cause may be fear or insecurity. Usually, the situation is remedied by helping the part understand that it is taken care of, that it is safe and that it has nothing to fear. Simply, have a conversation with the part and inform it of the truth. Once you receive the willingness of all the bodies, remember to thank them for supporting the manifestation of this authentic goal.

Affirm your alignment with this goal and your intention to manifest it.

By completing this process, you have created an authentic goal and brought yourself into full alignment with this goal. You can now move forward without struggle because all blocks have been removed. Success shall be yours.

5 Day Bootcamp Recap!

I just finished up a 5-day Bootcamp for 2 amazing ladies.  I just wanted to share my experience as well as there’s.
It is not easy doing 1 hour with me, and for them to do 3 hours in a row for 4 days, there deserve a big round of applause. 
They logged over 8 miles in Cardio.
They did more than 1,200 Reps Lifting.
They found muscles you didn’t think you had.
They learned new ways to torture themselves with just a piece of PVC pipping. Aka. Foam Roller.
They learned how the mind is a powerful tool, that will get you to the finish line as long as you believe.  
They learned that you can still do Hard things, even if you feel like you want to puke, 🤢, no giving up.
They learned how to fuel their bodies to workout and to live a healthier life. 
They learned that when you eat right, you look and feel more alive. 
Most important thing, age is just a number, and it is never too late to take control of your life and your body.  You can do anything you put your mind to. 
Over the course of the 5 days, I planned out a variety of things to do between lifting weights, cardio, body weight exercise, yoga, mindset work, Infra-red sauna, cold plunge therapy, compression therapy, massage therapy, healthy prepared meals, healthy recipes, and most of all a fun and motivating atmosphere.  
If you are looking to jump start your life into a healthier version of yourself, reach out today.  I can help you.  There is no better time to start! 
Feedback- I certainly learned a great deal and worth every dollar! 
I felt like I received quality attention, be pushed too limits I didn’t know I could and couldn’t do ☺️. This helped me know what to work on and how to move forward.
In addition, the recovery equipment was key to help with moving forward each day. Of course none of this would have been possible without your direction, encouragement and S.I.U.A.G!
The delicious meals after the workout was an excellent ending to the day. 
Thanks again for everything!
I’m excited to work on the new me!

Look in the Mirror!

Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and wonder: “Who is this woman? What’s her mission? What is she here for?”

And the exact same answer comes through over and over again –


There’s nowhere else to be.

Nothing else to do.

No one else to play.

Just play you, girl.

Go chase your dreams.

Live on your terms.

Make a difference.

Change lives.

Have fun.

Laugh a lot.

Love fearlessly.

Follow your heart.

Be unapologetically you.

That’s the only way to live life fully.

That’s the only way to make it count.

That’s the only way to leave true legacy.

Be the best YOU you can possibly be.

I love you!

It’s about love.

A state of being that’s available for each and everyone of you.

At any given moment.

Just go and seek within.

You’ll find it there.

Believe it or not.

What’s Possible?

What’s Possible?

​It’s not what you know about your past that creates success, it’s what you know about your future.

​​Listen to me. What you know will determine what you do. The main difference between extraordinarily successful results and just results, is not your intelligence, experience, where you grew up, or your education.

​​The difference is what you know and believe about yourself, the world, and what is possible.

Change in your results requires change in your thinking first. You have to believe you can do the impossible. You have to have faith in the ones around you guiding you and helping you each step of the way.

You can’t prepare for something that you don’t believe in fully.

You can’t grow past what you choose not to see.

You can’t build your dreams if you only see limits and obstacles.

You can’t build your dreams if you think in limits.

Enlarge what you believe and choose to see – so that you step into all that you can grow to be.

The Cost of Doing Nothing!

The cost of doing nothing.

Do you know why people never change banks even though the service is terrible and the fees seem arbitrary and high?

Stay with me here. 

It’s because it’s a pain in the ass to change banks.

You have to go find another bank, do the research, move your accounts…

And what if you do all of that and the new bank sucks too?

So you just stick with what you’ve got, even though it’s mediocre at best…

How often do we take this approach throughout our lives?

With health, with exercise, with friendships and even with relationships?

We embrace mediocrity because acknowledging that things aren’t great is painful, changing is hard and takes a lot of work at the beginning, and there’s no certainty of success at the end of it all.

We’d rather live with a known “just okay” than an unknown anything, even though chances are extremely high of getting back to “just okay.”

My point today is this – you don’t deserve okay. You don’t deserve mediocre. You don’t deserve the status quo.

AND you aren’t destined for that either. Your future is not written.

But doing what you did yesterday and the day before and the day before isn’t going to get you to that happy place.

You’re going to have to change things up, even if it’s just a little.

So think about it, what’s the cost of doing nothing for you right now?

Maybe today you make a tiny change, a tiny shift, do that one hard thing, and start building momentum toward greatness.

You might be surprised by what happens.

You can do hard things, and in the end they will pay off!
