Dysfunctional Food Relationships and Holiday Eating

My Mom and I recently started the 131 Diet. It’s a bit of a misnomer because it’s not a diet like you are probably thinking of; no one is telling us what to eat or not eat. Rather, it’s more of an educational program and phased eating approach that helps you understand which foods make […]

Loading Player 3…

I feel like I have not posted a blog in FOREVER. This is probably one of the longest no writing stretches I’ve ever been on. My last post was in August… woah. I have not been posting on Instagram, or Facebook, my Facebook groups, or keeping up with the rest of my social media either. […]

Success Is In The Mindshift!

If you only ever read one of my blogs, this is the one I want you to read. This is the secret to success, the crucial ingredients you need to live the life you’ve always dreamed about! It took me a long time to believe this, but once I FINALLY realized how true this statement […]

So… I’m a Fat Beachbody Coach, Now What?!

I had read some pretty devastating comments about “fat” beachbody coaches. They were pretty cruel and really discouraged me from signing up as a coach (despite REALLY wanting to help people), because I wasn’t to my goal yet. The comments really hit me in my insecurity spot. Thankfully, I was able to overcome those feelings […]

How To Stay Encouraged When Weight Loss is SLOW

I get really frustrated when people ask me how much weight I’ve lost drinking Shakeology or doing Insanity Max: 30. I feel as if that is the only measure of success people are interested in and when I have to tell them I haven’t lost much weight… they assume I have not seen much success […]

Fitting In While Getting Fit

We all want to feel like we fit in. As a plus size person, there are moments where your size can really make you feel a out of place. I know that going to the gym, and playing sports, really was a situation used to make me feelĀ like I stuck out like a sore thumb. […]

Has a Workout Ever Made You Cry?!

So, now that I’m officially diagnosed, on correct medicine and almost functioning at my full energy, I’ve been able to start exercising again. YAY! After a year of trying to get Daniel to join me in my Beachbody ChallengeĀ he did one of the workouts with me and really fell in love with Insanity: Max 30. […]

Fat Shaming, The Obesity Epidemic, and a Sizeless Beauty Standard

I recently posted this article about Tess Munster to my Facebook page. I love Tess Munster and it has nothing to do with her size. She is beautiful and it has nothing to do with her looks. She is a genuinely awesome person who wants people to be able to love themselves no matter where […]

The Detox Begins…

Armed with my new FitBit, I’m ready to get my bum back in gear again! The Christmas goodies are behind me and today I start the sugar detox over again. The withdrawls have not been too bad today, but I’ve been nauseated like CRAZY! Most likely it’s a side effect of Metphormin… the nausea doesn’t […]

I’ve Fallen Off The Wagon And I Can’t Get Up!

So, I’ve definitely fallen off of the healthy wagon in the last couple months. Part of it was just a chain effect – since I wasn’t able to work out (because of the extreme exhaustion due to Adrenal Fatigue, and possible PCOS and/or Thyroid disorder) I noticed that my diet was slacking too. Not that […]
