“Do you believe you deserve to be healthy?”

“I’m struggling with my eating and have no idea why!” Have you ever heard this? Have you ever said this? It’s ok, I’ve thought it, said it, lived it… I had a client walk in my office the other day and as she said this exact phrase, I could hear the panic and desperation in […]

We lost half of ourselves… (Video)

Kim and I sat down to discuss what it’s like to lose half our body weight… The wins, the losses, the struggles, the extra skin… We dug deep into the good, the bad, and the ugly of extreme weight loss. Have a question for us? We’ll be doing this again soon so hit us up […]

Change isn’t Sunshine and Roses…

What makes you think you are going to be able to change without pain?! I recently interacted with someone who quit. They quit on themselves. They quit on their family. They flat out quit on everything… What did they quit over? Being uncomfortable. They couldn’t handle taking responsibility for themselves. If you want to make […]

A topless walk on the beach…

Today…. Today I took my shirt off at the beach. Yes, it’s the first time I’ve ever walked up and down the beach topless. Who cares right?? I know… But I bet more people than you’ll ever dream. Many people would rather get electrocuted than be seen in a swimsuit without cover. How do I […]

A year ago I crossed the finish line in at my 1st 100 mile race. I should have been happy. I should have been excited. I should have been thrilled beyond belief that I had accomplished something that less than 5 people (that I know of) on this planet have done and I did it […]

Motivation or Discipline??

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to write something positive… I hit a rough patch for a long, long time and I finally feel like I’m moving in a good direction again! A little catch up- I’ve moved to Colorado, finally!!! I’ve been working on this goal for a long time […]

Rock Bottom…

Written late July 2017… This was never intended to be shared publicly but fuck it, I’ve got nothing else left to hide. I woke up, wanted to run to the top of the highest mountain and jump off the steepest part.  I knew I couldn’t jump. I didn’t really want to jump. But the fear […]
