5 Steps to Holistically Heal From an Injury

I talk about self-love on this blog, a lot. It's very easy to love yourself when life is going right. But the true test of being a #bossbabe is how you feel about yourself when everything is going wrong. Being injured for the past year has completely changed my training style, daily activities, priorities, and sense of self. I'm happy to say I've never felt so comfortable in my skin as I currently do. But it took nearly 10 months to get here. No one ever warns you about the emotional toll and injury can have.

How to Make Anxiety Your Best Asset

Walking into a room, chin up, form-fitting clothes, flouncy hair, and a big smile, no one would ever suspect I deal with occasional anxiety on first impression. But anxiety isn't just for the shy or awkward. In fact, I bet your boss, one of your role models, best friends, or even you have experienced it. Anxiety gets a bad wrap. And, it's not always the most pleasant feeling. But what if you could wake up one morning and say, "I am successful and happy because of my anxiety!"?

The Key to Successful Weight Loss

The key to successful, long-term weight loss? It's not a pill, special ab machine, or miracle meal replacement shake. In fact, it's not even a science-based nutrition plan or maintainable workout plan, though both of these are essential parts. It's your ability to identify, acknowledge, and respond to your "triggers." Your triggers could be a demanding work deadline, crabby children, a fight with your significant other, a snarky comment from a co-worker, a poor night's sleep, or feeling insecure after scrolling through social media. It's the little (or big) moments in your day that put a pit in your stomach, make your heart race, or get your mind racing about past regrets or future fears. These moments can be a

10 Natural Ways to Debloat Fast (Video)

There's very little that can slow me down when I have deadlines to meet, social outings to attend, relationships to build, workouts to do, and healthy meals to make. I'm a fast-paced person (currently learning how to slow down). However, there's one thing that can really put a damper on my checklist... bloating. It's painful and uncomfortable. Thank goodness for spandex, am I right?! We've all experienced it. And if you haven't please speak up! You may actually be inhuman ;). There's some bloating that just happens, ugh. But most of the time, bloating can be caused by some very common daily habits you wouldn't expect. I've created a video explaining my top 10 natural ways to debloat fast and prevent
