There are… so. many. layers.

There are… so. many. layers.

My journey through the wellness industry both personally and professionally has been much like the proverbial “onion”.

The more I learn and the more I integrate what I learn, the more layers to the health equation get exposed.

Movement is so much bigger than exercise.

Movement is so much bigger than exercise.

Regular movement is so much bigger than exercise, and dare I say even more important.

We are living in a world of convenience that has us moving less and less, and we convince ourselves that getting in an hour of exercise is enough to keep us healthy.

It’s not.

It is where the magic happens.

It is where the magic happens.

Yesterday my amazing friend and movement coach extraordinaire, Julie Angel, came into my Rumble & Rise community to teach a workshop that explores movement far outside the confines of traditional “exercise”.

And she made this comment that I’d like to sear into the brain of every human, “the work is in the wobble.”

What really matters when it comes to taking care of a human.

What really matters when it comes to taking care of a human.

When I became a mother 12 years ago, I had no idea how to take care of a tiny human.

In fact, I was pretty convinced that if the hospital knew just how uneducated I was about babies, there was NO WAY they would be releasing my son into my care.

Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner and if you are anything like the majority of my students and clients, you don’t need MORE to do this time of year.

Scary things pushed by the diet industry.

Scary things pushed by the diet industry.

The diet industry is awesomely good at selling complex formulas to be executed in short time frames promising BIG results with NO regard for how these tactics influence a woman’s mental health and emotional health.

What is the best form of exercise?

What is the best form of exercise?

Seriously, y’all.

Your body was designed to move often and much.

While I am a HUGE advocate of strength training and other forms of “exercise”, I am a bigger advocate of moving your body in as many ways as you can because you can.

I have literally had women tell me over the years that they just weren’t movers…it wasn’t their thing.

One of my greatest sources of inspiration in 2021.

One of my greatest sources of inspiration in 2021.

In January of this year, my not-quite-two-year-old Great Dane, Sully, had to have both of his eyes removed due to a birth defect that prevented his eyes from draining properly. Gah!

I was devastated because I told myself all kinds of stories about what this would mean for his life.

There was the story that he would go into a deep depression following the surgery, but…

Just when you hit your stride, a curveball…

Just when you hit your stride, a curveball…

Curveballs come in many forms AND they are a part of life. Life will throw you the unexpected for the rest of your life because…well… that’s life!

And learning how to rumble with curveballs without tossing your own self-care to the wind is a skill missing from the toolbox of an awful lot of women…not because they lack capability but because they have been practicing the all-or-nothing mentality for so long.

I rumble HARD with social media.

I rumble HARD with social media.

If I am being honest, I rumble HARD with social media… as a woman, a business owner (especially one in the field of women’s health), and, most certainly, as a mother.

It has its perks. It is a really convenient way to share information and ideas, to connect with people near and far, and to put your art (whatever form that takes) out into the world.

It is also problematic in… so..many…ways.

To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well.

While mentors, teachers, and coaches can give you some directions in VERY specific areas of your life to develop skills, navigate roadblocks and create certain results –  

YOU are responsible for taking into consideration how that advice fits into the wholeness of your life. 

And the honest to God truth is… 

What other BS beliefs have you heard about health?

What other BS beliefs have you heard about health?

Health is not a look: assuming you understand someone’s health story by looking at their body, is a lot like assuming you understand their life by looking at their social media feed.

Health is not…

There is a very wide gap between knowing and doing.

There is a very wide gap between knowing and doing.

I have yet to meet a woman who didn’t know that drinking water, movement, whole food, sleep, connection, and a growth mindset were good for the human body but I have met TONS of women who struggle to do things on the regular.

Many of these same women then convince themselves they need complicated measures because nothing is working. GAH!

Self-trust is a VERY BIG DEAL when it comes to your health.

Self-trust is a VERY BIG DEAL when it comes to your health. In fact, I would argue that it is a more powerful superfood than most actual “superfoods” being sold to you. ⁣

The diet industry doesn’t promote self-trust. In fact, they bank on you lacking it… quite literally.

What to do when self-doubt creeps in…

It is bound to happen.

You are going to have a day, probably many, along the path to improved health where self-doubt creeps in and you convince yourself that you are NOT making progress.

In those moments…

Learning to fail well is definitely a skill worth learning. While I can help a woman minimize failure and rebound more quickly I cannot protect her from failure entirely.

Not all actions are created equal.

Not all actions are created equal.

Of course, taking action matters if you want to improve your health or ANY area of your life. And, not all actions are created equal.

It’s Monday!

It’s Monday!

I modified the “code of conduct” I give my students for you to read through with the hopes that it will help you roll into your week with a bit more grace.

It doesn’t matter why you think you can’t. You absolutely CAN.

This is not just health coaching—it’s a personalized road map to the prime of your life. It’s coaching that will make today feel like the best days of your life are ahead of you, no matter where you’re at right now.
