The Key to Health, Energy + Fat Loss

I wish I would have known this 10 years ago.

What is the key to health? The key to more energy? The key to fat loss?

If you make this one thing your major priority, you'll see huge shifts in the way you look and feel.

This one thing is linked with a balanced metabolism and balanced hormones.

On the flip side, if you leave this one thing unregulated, it has been shown as a major component in diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer.

I just HAD to share this info with you because most people are not even aware of the importance of focusing on just this one thing.

I know, enough already...what is it?!

Watch this very short video to find out

Why Diets Make You Fat

Do you feel like nothing you do seems to get you in the shape you want to be in?

And do you feel like you've tried just about every-damn-thing there is out there?

Here's the thing-- 

most of the time, the diets we follow in hopes to get a bangin' bod actually end up making us gain MORE fat.

I hear you, wtf?! 

Check out this stat:

90-95% of people who lose weight by dieting gain it all back.  Yep, 90-95%

And about 60-65% actually gain back MORE than when they started!

Why is this?

Diets make you fat.

In this video, I go over some of the reasons that diets slow down your metabolism and mess up your hormones (the driver of the metabolism).

This is Part ONE in a 2-part series (stay tuned for Part 2).

After you watch the video, be sure to grab the Handy-Dandy Cheat Sheet I created for you: DITCH THE DIET, 2 Shifts To Start Seeing Results

Grab your cheat sheet here

I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.  Do you think you suffer from a less than stellar metabolism?

See you soon sweet thang,

Can Something So Simple Actually Help Me to Get in Summer Shape?

I can't believe it's already May!

Summer is right around the corner and so many of us start to get super busy at this time of year.

I know for us we have end-of-the-school-year events, planning family summer trips, lining up summer activities for our son... oh the mayhem! 

And every May I set out to get my body in "summer shape".

The irony of course being that when things start to get busy (busier I should say) the FIRST thing that starts to suffer is the very things that help me to be healthy + fit. 

Less trips to the gym, less time spent on meal planning, more mindless snacking, you get the picture.

Here's my strategy to stay on track with my health + fitness this year: 

I am going to follow along day by day with the Stress Monkee Calendar.

It's so simple and yet it works.

Daily tips to help you be ridiculously fit, inside + out.

By focusing on something small each day I'm able to stick to my health + fitness priorities without feeling overwhelmed.

And there's one thing I know for sure, consistency is the secret to being fit.

Be sure to grab this month's Stress Monkee Calendar + follow along with me.

If you'd like to save on ink, here's a version with no picture.

Here's to less drama + more joy...

ON THE GO BENCH WORKOUT

Need to add a little something extra to your morning walk? I love the challenge of finding little workout opportunities along the trail. I use stairs, walls, benches, or even rocks to enhance my walk and give it a little something extra. I feel better when I have taken a moment to focus on putting my environment to work for me. Use this everyday on-the-go routine to enhance your daily walk!
