Burrito Bowl Salad

Burrito Bowl Salad

We love a good bowl dinner in our house. And this one was great because I was able to customize each bowl to everyone’s taste-buds! I simply prepped all the various ingredients and then each member of the family prepped their bowl! Easy Peasy!

Curried Rice & Veggies Salad

Curried Rice & Veggies Salad

Growing up my mom and the best cold curried chicken that she always served with this amazing cold rice dish. It’s still one of my all-time favourite meals in the summer. But it’s a bit of a time intensive one. This was my throw it together in 20-minutes so we can get to the pool for swim club solution.

I saw a meme along these lines and literally laughed out loud. It's so true! I mean sure, there are moments during any run/ workout/ sweat sesh where you're legit loving it...but there are also some seriously MEH moments where you question your sanity and want to...

Are your goals killing your mojo?

Are your goals killing your mojo?

I love a good goal. They’re motivating and inspiring. And…they’re often also a total buzz kill. What? Yup…let me explain … Have you ever reached a goal only to feel a looming sense of underwhelm and thought to yourself … huh, now what?! Yeah, me too! And a lot of other people too! #human In fact, this is such a common experience that I wrote about it in my book The Elephant in the Gym. I talked about how for some people setting goals is one of the biggest roadblocks to success! So, how can you shift the process to the practice and become less attached to your goals? Read on to learn how!…

Lasting Change Takes Time: Be Consistent

Lasting Change Takes Time: Be Consistent

I know…we’re almost 2 weeks into the “new regimes” and you’re already feeling a little “done” with it. Here’s the thing. Lasting change…it takes time. So if you’re finding yourself with a case of the “I don’t wanna’s” and it’s not that you’re just lacking a little mojo today (more like every day)…consider that maybe, just maybe, you’re taking the wrong approach for you.

Lace Up Your Shoes to Success!

Lace Up Your Shoes to Success!

It all begins with a single step. It seems a bit simple, but it’s so true! Whether you’re just getting started with a walking program, headed to the gym for the first time or getting started on a big goal like running your first 10k or marathon – it all starts with ONE single step.
We tend to over-complicate things in fitness. We feel like we need a whole be plan all mapped out to know what we’ll do and when, but here’s the thing. Big complicated plans aren’t actually the key to success in many cases. In fact, sometimes they do more harm than good.

Build Fitness + Food Routines and Create Freedom!

Build Fitness + Food Routines and Create Freedom!

You can't possibly be motivated, inspired and "on" all the time. It's not possible. As humans we are innately looking for the easiest way to do things at all times. To minimize our energy output and still accomplish the greatest reward. I'm not saying your lazy...ok,...

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Being body positive is about so much more than feeling comfortable & happy in your body. It’s about the lens through which you view your world. It’s about the attitude you take to your life and how you “show up.” It’s about the confidence with which you carry yourself and the unstoppable spirit that you possess. You are capable of so much more than you know. And it all starts with a belief in your ability to do whatever it is you decide YOU want to do. #besuperyou

Be Body Positive #11: Change the Conversation

Be Body Positive #11: Change the Conversation

If I could speak up now, this is what I would say: “This is my body, and how I choose to feed it is solely up to me. I know you are well meaning, and I love you, but I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t comment on my choices.” And you might think that sounds harsh, but the bottom line is that it IS my choice – my body, my choices – your commentary isn’t necessary or welcome.

Be Body Positive #10: Drive Change

Be Body Positive #10: Drive Change

It’s easy to become down on yourself when you’re bombarded by messaging that tells you that you’re not fit enough, thin enough, good enough. It becomes common place to feel like you’re not doing enough. That you should do more, be more, have more and desire more. But if we step back and recognize that the messaging we’re hearing is preying on our deepest insecurities with the intent to sell us something you’ll start to see things through a different lens.
