I’ve struggled with depression for as long as I can remember. I look back at pictures of me as a small child and I see the sadness in my eyes. Does this mean I spend my days crying? No. To be honest I RARELY cry about anything. I used to when I was a hormonal teenager, because I really had no control over my emotions, but today… depression washes over me as… Read More

Over the last few years I have become somewhat of a “biohacker”. For those who don’t know what that is, the official definition by Dave Asprey (CEO of Bulletproof, Inc.) is: “Biohacking is the process of using science, biology, and self-experimentation to take control of and upgrade your body, mind, and life. Simply put, biohacking is the art and science of changing the environment around you and inside you so you have… Read More

I was talking to a friend on the phone the other day. She’s going through some sh*t right now. She was very down, and telling me all about it. As we were talking she got another call, so I was put on hold. When she got back on she was laughing and said “Man, I can turn ‘it’ on when I need to.” She talked about how for the person she was… Read More

Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks post-op from my breast implant removal surgery. I had them removed because I believe they were causing me to have autoimmune issues from Breast Implant Illness (BII). Since my surgery I have seen small improvements… brain fog is better, my eyes and skin are brighter, inflammation has decreased in my face and body, joint pain has reduced, chronically peeling skin on my hands and feet have… Read More

I have decided to have my breast implants removed, as I do believe they are contributing to my autoimmune issues and declining health. I’m sure that may come as a shock to some, as most people are unaware that I have implants, as they look natural. When I was 22, I decided to have breast augmentation surgery. Why? Honestly, I don’t know. I actually didn’t hate my breasts… I hated sooooooooo many… Read More

If you’ve ever watched my stories on social media, you’ve probably seen pictures of the food I eat in a day. I realize these stories are not the most exciting thing to watch about my day, and by no means do I feel like anyone really cares what I eat lol… BUT, as a nutritionist/trainer, one of the most frequent questions I am asked is “What should I eat?” or “What do… Read More

When trying to lose weight, most people simply rely on the scale as a way to track progress. But, the scale is not a very effective way of tracking progress. Body composition (body fat vs lean body mass) is much more important that what the scale says. A reduction in body fat, not body weight, is what you should be focusing on… to track this there are several methods that will tell… Read More

I am no relationship expert… HOWEVER, I am an expert in breakups. lol 😉 Yes, I have had my fair share of breakups over the years… Breakups from long term relationships, and breakups from brief love affairs. Some of them were my decision to end the relationship, and some of them were not. I’ve experienced heartbreak on multiple levels, for multiple reasons. Because of this, I have experience on both sides of… Read More

It’s been a week since I took on the challenge of World’s Toughest Mudder 2018, a 24 hour obstacle course race just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Now that I’ve slept and my emotions have calmed, I’ve had time to reflect on my experience, and determine how I feel about it… A year ago I decided I would take on the Tough Mudder challenge the #questforthegrail to celebrate my 40th birthday this year….

Yesterday was World Mental Health Day. A day that brings to light an often taboo topic of conditions such as depression, anxiety, etc. Since I believe that true health goes beyond what you put on your plate, or what you do in the gym, I thought I would share my experience in this topic. I am not a licensed counselor or therapist, but I am a health coach… and this is a… Read More
