Get Your Form in Shape!

I’ve seen you – giving me those looks. Averting your gaze or rolling your eyes when I walk over to you during boot camp. Your (dirty) look says “Here she comes again, the Form Nag. Jeez, why can’t she leave me alone and just let me do my workout?” Well, here’s what I say—over and…

Keepin’ It Real, Yo! Or What is Real Food Anyway?

People are talking about real food a lot these days, as in, “I only eat real food.” This can be confusing. What the hell does “real food” even mean? A chair isn’t food. You’d never eat one, would you? But a donut—that’s food, isn’t it? And if it’s food it must be real, right? They…

Drinkin’ your way through the holidays

Drinking and Partying!

I despise most holiday healthy eating blog post and articles. They’re usually filled with strategies that I just don’t find helpful, or more like it, realistic. “Don’t stand next to the food table”, “Nibble on the crudité”, “Eat before you go” (admittedly this one can be used successfully). Blah blah blah. The only problem is…

Five Reasons Your Scale Sucks

broken scale

We all know someone who gauges their fitness progress by the scale and the scale alone. Do you? If so, know this: there are far more important aspects of your health and fitness program than your weight. That little wafer of plastic and metal may even be hurting you and sabotaging your efforts to get…

Measuring Up. Shaping Up.

I realize that I’d been slacking on my job as holder of accountability.
