Puberty, Quasi–Consenting, and Cutting

(From an Instagram Post, December 2018.)

When I was going through puberty my mother sat me down one time and told me a story. She said this story was to help me be extra careful as I shifted into womanhood. One night when she was 16, growing up in Pittsburgh, was going home alone, and waited by the tracks to catch the next train. A man approached her. He somehow convinced her to go into a more secluded area of the station, raped her, and took away her virginity.

On Fearing My Femininity

I grew up with a physically and mentally ill mother. When I was young, I would sometimes watch hear grow jealous if my father paid too much attention to me. If my father and I spent more than a couple hours together, going to my basketball games or heading out for a trail run in the woods, she would become very upset with him….

Women Affirming Women

(Taken from an IG post in December, 2018)

Having confidence is a weird thing, because even you can only control two things in life, your actions and your attitude, I still believe in being aware of what is going on around you, and what influence your confidence, your beauty, your shine  is having on others…

Loving Fearlessly

…To love fearfully is to love with knowledge of a consequence if the decision is made to act otherwise;

To act in a love that points to a reward that you desire;

Loving only as a means to chase down something.

Something you want: that or whom which you think you need…

Thank you Drew!

(From November 2017.)

Thank you so much @drewsiv for coming by and saying hi!

Drew saw my post yesterday and came by to visit at the @landroverusa event in Venice today.  He shared his incredible story with me: he said he had been following me for years and struggled with his weight due to a debilitating injury.

Through his successful recovery and by tweaking his food, water and exercise habits, he was able to lose 25 lbs. and even develop an awesome set of abs! His inspirational story, paired with the fact that…

I'm going to get GUSHY

…This gorgeous bride-to-be had every excuse in the book to stress out and not lose weight. She has a multiple-hour, interstate commute to work, tons of traveling forcing her to live out of a suitcase half the time, roommates whose eating habits were less than stellar, and of course, the chaotic part-time job of planning a wedding!

Yet this kick-ass client went ahead and lost over 11 inches combined between her waist and her hips…

She Rocked This!

Hey Fit Gang!

 

I HAD to pass this email onto you today :) I got permission from this client to send along anonymous Before & After photos as well; honestly I couldn’t be more excited for this person. 

When I first met with her 7 months ago, she told me her goal was to be 125 lbs. for her high school reunion…

Answer Me This (and Snowboard Snacks)

It has been proven to me time and time again through my work that the magic lies in the little, not-so-noticeable things, and that the smallest changes WILL ALWAYS yield the most admirable results.
Just think about hormones. These teeny, tiny things that are an invaluable part of your system control everything from appetite to mood, to sex drive, to energy level, to hair growth, to pregnancy and the list goes on. Yet you can only see them under a high-tech microscope. So small, yet one the most powerful forces I can think of!

Fat, Ugly Cow

Okay here's what happened:

An online client said something to me on the phone last Thursday that I will never forget. It hit me like a brick to the stomach.

She was in the middle of telling me how all of her clothes fit better, she has more energy and she feels so much more confident now in her own body.
Then, in an off-handed manner, she said: “I realized yesterday…

I Think I'm So Tough

…Then suddenly, I thought “NO! Absolutely not! That would be such a wimpy move to call an Uber! And I’m not a wimp!” I shifted the bike to my other shoulder as a I paused in front of a traffic light, and said to myself, “Let’s do this!”
