When I first quit my corporate job, I stepped up my workouts to 20+ hours a week. I was back in school and when I wasn’t studying, I was working out.
At first I thought this was awesome. I finally could burn more than I ate. I would finally have the body I always wanted.
I would skip down the street thinking about how I’d finally have magazine cover 6-pack abs and how my triceps would stop jiggling when I waved.
But I never got there.
My belly still looked bloated and my arms…well, they still looked like MY arms.
I was pissed.
How could this be?
I said to myself, “I’m eating healthy and literally living in my lululemon, how could I NOT get the body I always wanted?!”
Well, if I could go back in time and tell myself what I know now I would’ve had a LOT more time on my hands. Not to mention energy and fun times too.
And I hear this is a familiar situation for a lot of women who I work with.
Ok, maybe they aren’t working out like it’s a part time job, but they are moving their bods and that number on the scale is staying put.

Watch out. You’re never gonna believe this:
Love, health & laughter,
