  • Exercise Your NO Muscle!

    Exercise your NO muscle

    We talk a lot about building healthy habits like meal prep, drinking water, scheduling time for exercise and going to bed earlier to get at least 6 hours of sleep, and making these part of our daily routine. Many of us can stick to these healthy habits short term, and once progress starts to slow down, it becomes difficult to celebrate those micro-changes as we start to approach attainment of long term goals. Micro-changes would be things like celebrating 0.5# gains in muscle mass, or a 0.5% loss in body fat. These are still amazing accomplishments. But, when progress starts to slow down, sometimes our minds lose some motivation, and we may ....

    Is Sleep Affecting Your Weight?

    Did you know that sleep affects your metabolism AND ability to lose weight? Sleep allows our bodies to recover from stressors such as work, working out, emotional stress, and so much more. Starting your day without enough recovery encourages a cycle of high-stress levels and bad behaviors, keeping you in a negative frame of mind and possibly even leading to poor food choices. When you are well-rested, your body is more likely to run properly encouraging weight loss and supporting your metabolism. Take a moment to think of all the times you are getting less than 6+ hours of sleep - is it occurring regularly? If so, you could be hindering your ....

  • Why do I need a coach?

    Goals and Progress – What do you do when everything is working? Or when it seems like everything is not working? January 2017 was when I made a real commitment to my health and fitness (yes, this was more than a year after I initially started CrossFit). At first, everything was going great. Huge improvements with diet and consistent training. I was eating healthier, paying attention to sleep and stress. The key in this phase was developing consistency. Then, things seemed to stall out – after months of consistent gains, it got a little frustrating to be hitting what were the same times or weights on benchmarks and in some cases going backwards. It left me wondering, what was ....

  • Taking The Long-Term Approach When It Comes To Nutrition

    Taking the long-term approach when it comes to nutrition. What does that look like?
