3 tips to learn to like exercise

Those people. You know the kind. They live in athleisure wear. Constantly post their workouts on social media. Occasionally celebrate whatever the hell a PR is (something to do with heavy weights?). They go to the gym on their lunch break. Y’know…fitness freaks. Those people. If you’re not one of them, you may be perplexed […] Read more…

How to Focus on Health if You Don’t Want to Lose Weight

Being uncomfortable in our own skin is like being simultaneously caged and exposed. On one hand, we feel trapped in our body; our shame and dissatisfaction makes us wish we could shed our shell.

Fitness is the realm of meatheads, jocks and juicers. It’s ass-out squat videos and flat tummy tea posts in our IG feeds. Not exactly a thing of substance. Although I know […] 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…
