Overcoming-Temptations-300x200

chocolate chips and cheetos

This is a personal post.Truth be told, I enjoy posting about personal things because I have no desire to spout off science, or play the expert know-it-all, or the queen of fitness. I can easily write about things that I have experience with, though, and I know both sides of the fitness spectrum. I ran into […] Read more…

Challenge- Week 2!

How was everyone’s week with our challenge?! Are the goals getting easier or harder? Just a little emphasis on water consumption for this week. If getting in 64 oz has been a struggle for you, it’s because you NEED that water! If you’re peeing all the time, that’s good! You will adjust a little, but […] Read more…

Challenge Week 1!

How is everyone doing?! Those who are participating in the 6-week challenge, how did the first week go? So far I’ve gotten really great feedback, that people are feeling really good! I think it’s interesting to see that everyone has their own struggle pertaining to health. For some (like me), sugar is the hardest to […] Read more…

Are you sick of these posts yet? =) Cori (from this post) was awesome at explaining how eating balanced has saved her relationship with food, and she looks KILLER in the process!

Guest Post: IIFYM Part 2

K guys, in my research of IIFYM (If it fits your macros), I’m piggy-backing off this previous post, and this is mostly centered around competing but I think it can be helpful to anyone who’s struggled with disordered eating, bingeing or looking for balance in nutrition. I asked my competitor friend Cori to share her experience, […] Read more…

Food woes: IIFYM part 1

I posted on my Facebook Fit Steph page a while back about a new eating disorder, “orthorexia,” which is an obsession with only clean eating. Foods are often labeled “good” and “bad,” and it gives you anxiety to have to always have to choose the “good.” Ha… I actually don’t hate clean-eating, I feel really […] Read more…

Surviving the Super Bowl

Whatever team you’re rooting for, don’t be a loser on your diet! This weekend will be crazy at the grocery stores, just plan on it, but don’t make that an excuse to mindfully throw all the junk you can find into your cart!

mental toughness

I’ve been thinking for some time about why some people are able to lose weight and maintain it, and why others keep failing again and again. There might be various factors. Do they not have sufficient education on proper diet and exercise? How much do genetics play a role? Are hormones off? I think those factors can […] Read more…

new blog, new year, new me, new you

I LOVE the holidays and all the treats and goodies that accompany them. But a part of me craves and welcomes that regular routine, in my typically healthy lifestyle. For a lot of people, however, finding the motivation isn’t that simple. It takes grit, self-discipline, and a reality check to not just set New Year’s […] Read more…
