If you’ve been following me for a while you may have noticed I focus more on worthiness, self love, authenticity, and accountability than I do about food, calories, macros, exercises, motivation, etc. My education is in these practical things, but I know that telling people about calories, macros, exercises, etc. doesn’t do a damn thing unless a person is ready to change.

Sure enough, there it was, the first article on Google. The article described the many variables that may contribute to this extremely low percentage – the unrealistic images portrayed in the media was… Read More

Well, about 3 days into week 2 of my prep my world came crashing down… again. My fiance decided to end… Read More

So, today marks my first official week back on plan with my coach, Ruben Sandoval, from Fit to be in Your Kitchen. I started on Labor Day. Let me tell you… it started out rough. First thing that morning I accidentally brewed my coffee all over my kitchen counter because I didn’t have the pot lined up right in the coffee maker… Strike 1. Then as I’m cooking my breakfast I realize… Read More
