5 Ways to Get Fit with a Busy Schedule

We all have one common enemy—TIME

For most of us, the #1 challenge to get fit and lose weight is not exercising itself but being able to actually fit an exercise program into our busy schedules.

So how do you do it? How do you balance the demands of family, career, important errands, relationships, organizational responsibilities, and working out?

I have found there are five keys that will help you fit a consistent workout plan into your already hectic life:

1. Commit to a specific schedule

When you fail to plan you plan to fail. Don’t try to haphazardly fit your workouts into your schedule without any rhyme or reason.

Therefore, right in the midst of all of your appointments, “to-do” lists, etc., should be a written plan for your weekly workout routine, so that you will never be in the dark as to when you committed to yourself to do.

To set yourself up for success, you will need to take the time to write your workouts into your weekly schedule. A reasonable starting point is 150 minutes of moderate cardiovascular activity per week. This could be walking, running, hiking, the elliptical spin class, boxing, etc. The key is to find something you enjoy! And yes, that is possible! lol

2. Utilize the weekend

Take advantage of the fact that it only takes 3-5 days per week to put together an effective, results-producing workout plan. One trick to help you pull it all off is to workout on the weekends. One of the benefits to this is that your schedule is more flexible.

What it also means is that when the hectic weekdays roll back around, you will only be responsible for working out 1-3 days during the work week.

3. Keep your workouts as a high priority

One of the biggest mistakes that even many people who have scheduled a workout program into their schedule make is allowing it to be bumped off of their schedule too easily.

Although things will occasionally come up that will cause you to have to reschedule the workout you had planned, you must be persistent in making sure that only the most important emergencies are allowed to temporarily take you off of your plan.

In the event that one of those important emergencies does happen and you can’t make it to your workout, reschedule with yourself to make it up on the next possible day that you are available to do so. If your own health, fitness, and efforts to lose weight are not a priority to you, they certainly won’t be so to anyone else. That was said in love 🙂

4. Enroll others in your goals

Don’t go at this alone. Let the important people in your life know what you are up to. Your spouse or significant other, parents, children, co-workers, or close friends will often pitch in and help you to meet your fitness or weight loss commitment to yourself if you make them aware and ask for their support.

Leverage these relationships to delegate some of your normal responsibilities or even allow you to shift appointments that you have with them as you restructure your schedule for your workout. If any of them are into exercise or trying to lose weight themselves, don’t hesitate to form a buddy system with them as you move forward with your program.

5. Don’t beat yourself up

No matter who you are, there will be times in your workout program that you just aren’t able to keep it up as you would like due to factors you cannot control. Don’t be too tough on yourself when that happens.

Remember that it is what you do consistently over a long period of time, not what you do in spurts, that truly counts. Just make sure that you get back to business as soon as you can and continue to press forward, doing your best to keep your momentum!

No matter what goals you have for health, fitness, or weight loss, you CAN fit an effective exercise program into that hectic schedule of yours and be amazingly successful at getting the results that you want!

The 10 foods stressed out women should be eating

When you’re stressed out, the foods that you’re more likely to turn to are traditional ‘comfort’ foods – think large meals, take-out, fatty foods, sweet foods, and alcohol.

While turning to these foods can make you feel better temporarily, in the long run, they can make you will feel worse. When your body isn’t getting the right nutrition, you can begin to feel less energetic, more lethargic, and in some cases less able to concentrate and focus. All of this can lead to even more stress.

Foods that Fight Stress

If you’ve been feeling more stressed out than usual lately, it’s important to know which foods are best to choose and which to avoid when it comes to combating stress and helping you to deal with feelings of stress and anxiety. The best way to fight stress is to have a healthy, balanced diet which includes a moderate amount of each of the different food groups.

Filling up on foods such as whole grains, leafy vegetables, and lean proteins as the basic staples of the diet is the best way to ensure that your body gets the optimum amounts of nutrients to fight both physical and mental health problems. When it comes to choosing the foods to eat, some have a range of great properties which help the body to combat stress. Choosing these stress-busting foods will help to heal and calm your mind in the long-run rather than providing a temporary fix.

Some of the best stress-fighting foods include:

  • Avocado – Avocados are a creamy and versatile fruit which can be eaten in a range of different ways whether you enjoy it raw, made into sauces, dressings and dips, or in a smoothie. Avocados contain higher levels of vitamin E, folate, and beta-carotene than any other fruit, which boosts their stress-busting properties

  • Blueberries – Blueberries have some of the highest levels of antioxidants, which means that this berry has been linked to a wide range of health benefits including sharper cognition, better focus, and a clearer mind – all of which can help you to better deal with stress.

  • Chamomile Tea – Drinking liquids which are high in sugars and caffeine, such as coffee, energy drinks or soda, can actually increase your stress levels if consumed regularly. Chamomile tea has long been used as a natural bedtime soother, and it has also been used in clinical trials, which determined that chamomile tea is effective in reducing the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder.

  • Chocolate – Dark chocolate in particular is best for you, as it contains more flavanol’s and polyphenols, two hugely important antioxidants which can help combat stress

  • Beef – Grass-fed beef has a huge range of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and Vitamin’s C and E, which can help your body to fight stress and anxiety.

  • Oatmeal – As a complex carbohydrate, eating oatmeal causes your brain to produce higher levels of the feel-good chemical serotonin, helping you to feel calmer and less stressed.

  • Walnuts – If you’re looking for a healthy snacking option which will help you to stay better in control of your stress levels, walnuts are a great choice. There is no denying the sweet, pleasant flavor of walnuts and they can be a tasty snack for in-between meals or as part of a desert.

  • Pistachios – Studies have found that simply eating two small, snack-size portions of pistachios per day can lower vascular constriction when you are stressed, putting less pressure on your heart by further dilating your arteries. Along with this, the rhythmic, repetitive act of shelling pistachios can actually be quite therapeutic!

  • Green Leafy Vegetables – Leafy, green vegetables should be a pivotal part of anyone’s diet. Along with helping to combat stress, leafy greens are full of nutrients and antioxidants which help to fight off disease and leave your body feeling healthier and more energized. Dark leafy greens, for example spinach, are especially good for you since they are rich in folate, which helps your body to produce more mood-regulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which is a ‘feel-good’ chemical.

  • Fermented foods – Last but not least, eating fermented foods such as yogurt can help to keep your gut healthy, which actually in turn will help to improve your mental health and reduce stress levels.

Putting Together Your Diet Plan

Planning your meals wisely is key to not only staying physically fit and healthy, but also to staying mentally strong and being able to best manage your levels of stress. Knowing which foods to avoid and which are the best to reach for to snack on when you’re feeling worried and anxious is important to helping you get control over your emotions and fears.

A good example of a healthy, stress-busting menu would be:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with berries or a fruit smoothie with avocado and berries

Mid-morning snack: Greek yogurt with fruit or a handful of pistachio nuts

Lunch: A whole-grain pasta salad filled with plenty of leafy greens

Afternoon snack: Dark chocolate

Dinner: Grass-fed beef with vegetables

Before bed: Chamomile tea

Of course, you don’t need to stick to this menu – but it gives you a good idea!

Remember to practice portion control when eating foods such as nuts, chocolate, yogurt or avocado! As the saying goes, you are what you eat – so make sure that first and foremost, you’re filling yourself up with foods which are good for your mental health.

Edge Naturale’s Hair Vitamins: What were my results?!

It takes all of maybe 30 seconds of scrolling on social media for an ad to pop up. You might be tempted to scroll past them, but if you’re a product junkie in the making like myself, you slow down and read the caption, then the comments to see the real deal – is the product worth the hype or not?

One of the ads that stayed in my rotation was from Edge Naturale’s. Their ads caught my eyes because of the raving reviews and thousands of views and shares! So imagine my surprise when the lovely owner, Shantel reached out to me and asked me to try Edge Naturale’s Hair Vitamins for 30 days and share my honest feedback!

I’d taken hair vitamins before, but often stopped because they caused breakouts no matter how much water I drank. But I was willing to give these a try since it had been a few years since I tried hair vitamins. Plus, I wanted to support a small, female owned business!

Some may look at my pictures or have seen me in person and wonder why I would want to take hair vitamins in the first place. But I experienced hair breakage around my nape because I wasn’t giving that section of hair the TLC it needed. Like most naturals, my hair is full of different textures and curl patterns. The hair in my nape area has tighter curls that tangle easily and are more prone to dryness. The other sections of my hair are pretty healthy, but I haven’t experienced as much hair growth over the last year or so, which made me believe my hair was close to terminal length

Before accepting the opportunity to review the vitamins, I made sure to check out the ingredients. I was impressed by the quality of the ingredients! Beyond the standard Biotin, the plant-based formula contained 28 vitamins and minerals that support healthy hair growth, stimulate hair follicles, increase hair density, and reduce hair loss due to mechanical damage –  Selenium, Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin E, Hydrolyzed Collagen Type 1 & 3, and Vitamin B!

Incorporating the vitamins into my daily health regimen was pretty standard – take 2 tablets daily with a meal

Unlike other hair vitamins, I did not experience skin breakouts. At the end of the 30 days, my strands were denser and longer! My hair was also shiner and softer due to the extra vitamins and minerals. An added bonus was that my hair were growing faster too!

What’s my recommendation? I would definitely recommend Edge Naturale’s Hair Vitamins if you are looking for a formula with no added fillers, doesn’t cause breakouts, and allows you to see a noticeable difference after just 30 days!

If you’re interested in trying out Edge Naturale’s hair vitamins for yourself, click here!

5 Ways to Manage Cravings + Your Next Favorite Banana Bread Recipe!

Managing your cravings may seem like an impossible task. With every day stressors and temptations, and simply not knowing how to make better choices instead, your cravings might seem like they will always overtake you. But that doesn’t have to be the case

Even after being on this lifestyle change journey since 2008, I can honestly say the cravings haven’t gone away completely, but they have been greatly reduced. I do not give in to them nearly as often and I have developed a healthier relationship with food!

What have I learned along the way? I put together my top 5 Tips to Help You Manage Your Cravings plus a delicious recipe!

1. Eat balanced meals – One of the main reasons that you have cravings is because your body is not getting the nourishment it needs. Cravings are your body’s way of saying it is out of balance and lacking in one or more areas. Overconsumption of fast food, fried foods, sugary and processed foods leaves you nutrient-deficient because you’re filling your body with “empty calories”

To create a balanced plate, make 1/2 your plate green veggies, 1/4 of your plate a lean protein, then the remaining 1/4, a complex carb. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of a healthy fat on the side for a little something extra!

2. Make breakfast – When you eat a healthy, balanced breakfast, you’re more likely to make healthier choices throughout the day. Allow your breakfast to set the tone for the day. What are your healthy intentions for the day? Establish that with the first meal of the day. Some easy options include overnight oats, green smoothies, egg muffins, casseroles or frittata’s

3. Fill nutritional gaps – If you’re craving sweets, then you need more glucose. But opt for fruit or naturally-sweetened foods. Craving chocolate? You might need more magnesium, found in nuts, seeds, beans, and whole grains. How about soda? You might need more calcium, which you can find in cheese or dairy foods (ex. yogurt or cottage cheese), green leafy veggies or sardines

4. Get some rest – When you’re tired, you might crave foods that will give you a quick boost of energy, like pastries, cookies, or candy. Establish a night time routine and aim for 7-9 hour of sleep per night. Your body needs to receive signals that it’s time to wind down – a warm bath, listening to soothing music, un-plug from social media one hour before bed, or read a book

5. Avoid extreme food restrictions – THIS is why I am anti-diet. Diets are restrictive and are essentially set-up to cause you to fail. “How do I know if I’m on a diet?” When you have a laundry list of “bad” or “off limits” foods, then eventually your body will rebel and you will begin to crave those foods more and more. I promote balance, moderation, and creating a sustainable lifestyle. Instead of constantly removing food from your daily diet (with the exception of food sensitivities and intolerances), find more calorie-conscious ways to satisfy your cravings

To help you with that, I’m sharing what I call your next favorite Banana Bread Recipe!

I hope you found these tips helpful! Comment below and let me know which tips you plan to try!

Have you found an activity you enjoy…or at least something you don’t dread?

I know not everyone enjoys exercising. Many people see exercise as a chore. Sometimes it’s about time, convenience and/or simply finding something they enjoy.

If you aren’t sure where to start, let’s look at some options and see what you discover! Once you discover the formula of time-convenience-enjoyment and realize the benefits of exercise, you won’t want to stop!

Find what moves you!

Exercise actually gives us energy!

Exercise has also been shown to be great for reducing stress, anxiety and depression, as well as keeping us looking and feeling younger.

Think about how you feel after you’ve been sitting around for hours, versus how you feel when you’re up moving around. You feel better when you’re active, right?

You don’t have to spend hours at the gym to get the benefits of exercise.

If you’ve taken a break from exercise, start with something simple like a 20-minute walk.  Look at ways you can add more activity into your day – a short walk during your lunch break, another walk after work perhaps.  If finding 20-30 minutes at a time is challenging, see how you can break it up into smaller chunks of time.  10 minutes, here and 10 minutes there – it adds up!

The key is to start with something, and COMMIT to it.  It doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

What gets measured gets done. 

Having an activity tracker like a Fitbit or pedometer is a great way to see how active you are.  Activity trackers can give you an idea of how many calories you burn during the day, and it can be motivating to see your progress.

You can also use an app like RunMeter or WalkMeter to track your walking pace and distance.  There are more and more fitness tracking devices coming out on the market all the time, but for starting out, a basic pedometer might just be perfect. 

It helps to have a goal of 10,000 steps per day and see how close you get to that each day.  If you are just starting out, a goal of 5,000 per day for the first month may be more realistic. Remember to check with your doctor before you start a new exercise routine. 

Find a friend or coworker that has similar goals and figure out something you can do together to help keep each other accountable. For many people, this can be a huge help and a great motivator.  Studies show that when there is a support system in place, people do much better sticking to their goals.

Do you prefer to work out at home? Great! There are endless options for workouts to choose from for every fitness level. Options include exercise DVD’s, YouTube workouts, fitness apps and more. Let me know if you need suggestions.

Joining a gym is a great option too.  If you can invest in a personal trainer to get you started, you’ll see results quicker and be assured that you’re using proper form to prevent injuries. 

There are plenty of exercise options available – find something you enjoy so you’ll look forward to it rather than considering it a chore. Here are just a few:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Dancing
  • Biking
  • Rowing
  • Swimming
  • Strength training
  • Group exercise classes at the gym
  • At-home workout DVD’s
  • Online workouts
  • Pilates
  • Kickboxing
  • Boxing
  • TRX suspension

So what will you start with this week?  Put the days and times on your calendar just as you would for an important appointment. 

Tip:  Get your workout clothes ready the night before and have them laid out all so you’re ready to go.  Put them where they’ll be one of the first things you see when you wake up.  If you work out in the morning, put your workout clothes on first thing, before you do anything else. 

Make sure to compliment your workouts with the food you’re eating. You can’t outwork an inconsistent diet and you don’t want to undue all of your hard work, do you?

6 Ways to Improve Your Health + Mindset for Success in the New Year

You have the intention and desire to lose weight. You’re tired of feeling sluggish, not fitting into your clothes comfortably, lacking confidence, running low on energy, or receiving negative doctor’s reports concerning your health. I have definitely been there so I understand how you feel. You want to make changes, but you aren’t sure where to start. All of the information online seems conflicting and overwhelming

Or perhaps you have started, but have fallen off track due to the holidays, traveling, family obligations, etc. But now you’re ready to get back into the swing of things and pick up where you left off

No matter where you’re at on your journey, this blog post is for you!

I’m covering 6 ways to improve your physical health and 6 ways to improve your mindset so you can be successful in the New Year and beyond!

You need to focus on improving both along the way if you want to achieve long-term, sustainable changes! No magic potions or quick fixes here!

So let’s get into it!

Since you can’t outwork a poor diet and 80% of your weight loss results will come from making changes, here are some easy healthy eating habits you can begin with

Start with 1-2 that seem feasible for you. Once you are consistent, add another, and then another…

  1. Plan the following day’s meals & snacks– when you have a plan you’re more likely to eat foods that are in line with your goals and the office doughnuts and fast-food on the way home, will be less appealing. If you feel you could benefit from receiving a weekly personalized weight loss meal plan, I proudly offer that service! Click here to learn more!

2. Eat green veggies at 2 meals + 1 snack – I call this the “Volume Method.” This method adds fiber to your meals, which promotes fullness. You also receive vitamins and minerals that aren’t available through processed foods. This could look like filling ½ your plate with green veggies at lunch and dinner. Tossing in a couple of handfuls of spinach in your morning omelet, or enjoying a delicious green smoothie for a meal or snack

3. Take a 20 minute walk on your lunch break – getting in more non-exercise activity is highly underrated. Non-exercise activity thermogenesis, or NEAT, can help you burn more calories throughout the day. Plus this short break can help you feel refreshed and less stressed. If walking outside is not feasible due to the weather, you can follow along to a YouTube indoor walking video

4. Eat protein with each meal of the dayprotein is the most filling macronutrient in comparison to carbohydrates and dietary fats. A portion of protein could be 2 whole eggs or 4 ounces of chicken, turkey, fish, pork loin, or extra lean ground beef. Adequate protein intake of 0.8-1 gram per pound of body weight is recommended to preserve lean muscle mass. Muscle helps you burn more calories at a resting heart rate throughout the day

5. Eat more natural foods (less packaged food) – Eat more foods with ingredients you can pronounce, such as the lean proteins listed above, whole grains, beans/legumes, nuts/seeds, and low-fat dairy. If you can’t pronounce most of the ingredients on the back of the package, chances are your body will not recognize it as food; meaning the body cannot use it for energy. Packaged foods are highly processed (stripped of nutrients) so they offer very little nutritional value. They are mostly filled with sugar, sodium, chemical additives, and saturated or trans fats. These foods are manufactured to be highly palatable so they become addicting, which fuels your cravings for more

6. Drink more herbal tea & water for liquids – the liquid calories from soda, juice, alcohol, and specialty coffee beverages, adds up quickly and does not help you feel full and satisfied compared to solid food. Sparking water and fruit-infused water are both great ways to increase your water intake without the extra calories. Ideally, you should be drinking ½ your body weight in ounces of water per day

Now that you have some starting points for easy ways to dial in on your nutrition, what will keep you focused when the journey gets a little tough?

Make these 6 mindset shifts to keep you from yo-yo dieting and saying to yourself “I’ll start over on Monday”

1. This is a marathon and not a sprint – You have to be committed to a long-term lifestyle change. What approach can you take to eating healthier that is sustainable for you? You didn’t gain the weight overnight, so you can’t expect to lose it overnight

2. Take your focus off the scale – Yes, weight loss is the goal, but there are so many other ways you can gauge your success that are also important – do you have more energy? Better sleep? An improved mood? Better eating habits? You can lift heavier or workout with more intensity? Has your digestion improved?

3. Progress over perfectionProgress is not liner. Some weeks’ you might lose 1 pound, the next week ½ a pound, and for a couple of weeks, the scale might stay the same. The point is to keep moving forward. It is part of the journey you need to embrace because it happens to us all. The process may seem slow, but quitting surely won’t make it happen any faster

4. When you get off track, it’s not the end. You can begin again – Don’t stay stuck. Evaluate where you’re at and why you’re there. Then make changes. When in doubt, remember your “why” to keep you focused and motivated

5. Small changes add up – No change is too small. Forward is forward; no matter the pace. Consistency is the name of the game. When you’re consistent with your habits, you will see positive changes

6. Abundance instead of restriction – Avoid thinking in terms of foods you “can’t have.” Why? Because truly all foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle. You can have what you want, just not all of it all of the time. Instead consider what you can add – discover new foods, spices/seasonings and new food preparation methods (hint: get an air fryer!). When you restrict the foods you eat, that only leads to frustration, burnout, and you wanting to return to your old pattern of eating that wasn’t working for you. It’s also important to consider how much of a blessing it is to have access to fresh, healthy food!

When you get your body and mind aligned, you’ll actually start working for change in some way on a daily basis. You’ll build resiliency overtime so you won’t give up when life throws you a curve ball!

How are you getting your mind and body prepped for success?

10 Tips to Enjoy a Balanced Holiday Dinner

Are you wondering how you will achieve balance between enjoying holiday meals and achieving your health goals? Sure, this is the time of year when most people gain weight. But that doesn’t have to be your story.

I can understand how the holiday’s might make you anxious and wonder if you should just throw in the towel and begin again January 1st. Before you even think about quitting, check out my top 10 tips that will help you achieve balance at your next holiday meal!

1. prepare a healthy dish so you have an option. Don’t feel embarrassed to kindly ask what is on the menu so you can plan accordingly

2. eat before you go. Have a light snack so that you’re not ravenous and tempted to overindulge. A piece of fruit and nut butter, a low-sugar protein bar, or veggies and hummus are all great options

3. have a balanced plate. Start by filling 1/2 your plate with veggies and the other half with foods you enjoy. Consider taking small amounts of some foods you don’t typically eat throughout the year

4. hydrate! You might be eating foods that are higher in sugar and salt than what you’re used to. Avoid bloating and constipation with plenty of water. Ideally, drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water daily. I also like drinking water before a meal and during the meal to fill my belly and prevent overeating

5. wait 20 minutes before going back for seconds. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to send the signal to your brain that you’re full. If you allow your food time to digest, you might realize you don’t want anything else or at least not as much

6. enjoy the festivities for more than the food. Enjoy time with family and the opportunity to relax. Try not to make the holiday all about food

7. eat slowly and mindfully. This relates to tip 5. When eating mindfully, you’re engaging your senses and really taking the time to slow down and savor your food. Food is meant to be enjoyed!

8. movement. Try to stay active through the day with a workout, brisk walk or volunteer for kitchen clean up

9. have a post-holiday plan. Have a plan to get back to your normal eating habits the next day. Hydrate and get in some movement too

10. be kind to yourself. Never, not just during the holiday, feel bad about anything you’ve eaten! No one is perfect. You didn’t fail. The only time you fail is with you stop trying. So no matter what, learn from it, give yourself grace and keep moving forward!!

Of course, this journey is yours. So take what you want and leave what you don’t!

Which tips will you use this holiday season?

I’m here to help you make this holiday season your fittest and most fabulous holiday yet without sacrificing flavor. Keep the momentum and finish the year off strong!

1) It needs to be right for your TASTEBUDS. It lets you enjoy your favorite meals (in a balanced way) so that you never feel deprived.

2) It needs to be right for your BODY. It helps you feel your best so you actually feel MORE energy while following your lifestyle plan. No more constant hunger and fatigue.

3) It needs to be right for your LIFE. Unless you have a personal chef, you can’t have 3 hours of food prep go into your meals each day. You probably can’t spend 2 hours at the gym each day, either. Nor would you want to! I know I wouldn’t…

My 28-Day Total Body Clean-Up Challenge will give you everything you need to create healthy habits that work for you and take the next step towards being fit and confident.

This online program is designed to help you lose the stubborn pounds, detox, and add nutrients to your day!

P.S. The reason that all the “quick fixes” you’ve tried in the past didn’t work is because you can’t turn a quick fix into a lasting fix. Lasting weight loss requires a different approach… one that is effective AND sustainable.
