Last Week Sucked

Last Week Sucked
Last week sucked.  Like, if last week never happened, I would TOTALLY be okay with it.  I won’t go into much detail, but here’s the deal… Last Saturday marked my last day of work at a job I care a lot about and have poured a lot into.  While I was sad to leave, it was really nice to no longer work insane hours and to focus on taking better care of myself and my family.  I resigned so that we could move to Vancouver (Washington, not... read more

How Many Carbs Should You Eat?

How Many Carbs Should You Eat?

Balance Your Leptin, Balance Your Weight…

Balance Your Leptin, Balance Your Weight…
I wanted to write today and offer a great tip for fat loss that will really help with those suffering from leptin resistance.

The Most Important Resolution This Year
Well, it’s 2013.  Uhm…when did that happen??  I may or may not have rung in this new year sound asleep in my bed last night.  Don’t judge me…it’s been a long year!  :) Loser-tendencies aside, I always love this time of year because I love making New Year resolutions!  I love the idea of a fresh slate and a new start!  So before I get into the most important resolution to focus on this year, let me give you a brief history of where the... read more

Just Stop It…

Just Stop It…
I had kind of a frustrating day today.  I apologize in advance as this post will be somewhat of a rant for me, but rest assured if you stick with me here, you will glean some insight!  (Promise)! So I work full-time at a weight loss clinic, part-time at a women’s fitness center, and in my spare time, I am a diet and exercise blogger as well.  All that to say, I’m surrounded by people looking to lose weight throughout my day…which I love because... read more
