Let's Speak the Truth About Being Healthy!
I studied Chinese Medicine for 4 years (Masters in Science/ Eastern Medicine) and can apply almost everything I learned to all aspects of health! There is something we used in diagnosing all patients called the 10 Questions. I still use it today for my weight loss clients to see where they are at in terms of overall health. As I review each question below, answer on your own to see if you have any imbalances!
Spring break is around the corner and then it will be summer season! Perhaps you have road trips planned or vacations around the world? Well, no matter where you are headed here are some tips to keep your waistline in check so you don’t come home 5 pounds heavier and feeling unhealthy!
Before the trip begins, you need to PREPARE for the PRE-TRIP! Is this a road trip or are you getting on a plane? Either way, I want you to prep your travel day meal and snacks!
As many people know, I run an online nutrition/fitness company called Earn That Body! I coach people (online) all over the world.

Your child has baseball at 5pm. So, you pick him/her up at school, rush home to give them a snack and let them start some homework. Before you know it, it is time to get dressed for their sport. You hurry over to the baseball field and then sit for hours while they play. After practice, it’s 6:30-7pm and now everyone Is starving and cranky! You think of the fastest and closest food you can grab, and you once again, RUSH there to eat...
Okay people, I’m just going to come out and say it…. WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THESE FITNESS CHALLENGES? Who created them? What was the intent? What is the goal? And how about WHAT IS THE END RESULT?
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, perhaps you were invited to do a Pushup Challenge last year to help fundraise for a charity. I have no problem with fundraising, but why would you ask people to do a zillion push-ups every day for 30 days? Did the person who created this fundraiser have any background in fitness? Because if they did, I’m sure they would see that doing any strength training move day after day after day (for 30 days) could really lead to injury. Not to...
