4 Easy Exercise Guidelines to Stay Fit

I was 21. Young and just starting to understand the world. Fresh out of a break-up from my first long-term boyfriend. I remember being on an elliptical machine, gripping the cool metal on the handles and peddling my legs against the resistance. As my body worked, so did my mind. I’m not going to let […] Read more…

5 Easy Diet Rules to Maintain Your Weight

You might have heard the statistic that 95% of people who lose weight gain it back within five years. I don’t know how accurate that is, but I can say that I was one of those people. I lost 20 pounds in my early twenties, and by the time I was 31 I had regained […] Read more…

Cut Your TV Consumption – Go On A Brain Diet

My house is under renovation and my TV hasn’t been plugged in for three weeks. I haven’t even noticed or thought about it. Even before this, I was never a big TV watcher. For years I’ve relied on the internet and social media for entertainment and information purposes, and I’ve even cut back on that. […] Read more…

Diet “Rules” You Should Break

I spent a few years being cray about eating clean. I used to bring Whole Foods organic turkey jerky and a measured bag of nuts to happy hour so I wouldn’t eat any bar food lmao. I remember an old coworker saying, “Damn, you do it by the book.” And I really did. These days […] Read more…

Kick Your Sugar Habit While Still Eating Chocolate

I have to admit something, and you might think I’m a smug POS for saying so, but I don’t get sugar cravings. In fact, I don’t crave any particular food group. That’s not to say I don’t eat sweets or indulge in the finer things in life (I do). But on a day-to-day basis it […] Read more…

Buckling Down & Giving Fucks

I talk a lot about moderation and still being able to enjoy yourself whether you’re maintaining your weight or trying to drop fat. But it would be dishonest of me to paint the process as easy. Moderation still takes work; there’s a balance to figure out. Obviously you are not going to be able to […] Read more…

The Argument for Weighing Yourself

The scale carries a lot of weight–both literally and figuratively. It is simply a contraption to measure an object’s mass, but it has also become a measure of our self worth. That’s why many coaches advise folks to not weigh themselves. The day to day fluctuations of our weight can prove to be too stressful, […] Read more…

The Glute Guide

If there’s one thing Instagram has taught us, it’s that ass is in. It always has been in my book, but with the rise of social media fitness figures, the booty is in your face like never before. A shapely and firm backside is aesthetically pleasing, but strengthening your glutes is also paramount for improving […] Read more…
