The value of a dollar was instilled in me at a young age by my Parents. "Money doesn't grow on trees" is a phrase I often heard when I wanted something.  I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them.  Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.

Most of us don't think about fixing our car, until it breaks down. Then, it's expensive, time consuming, and sometimes, can be too late. Our bodies and minds are the same. Consider a healthy balance of taking care of YOU, before you get sick and need loads of prescriptions. Balancing life is tough, I get it! Consider baby steps and make a plan.

The first food pyramid was introduced in the 1970's, and it is supported by the USDA. The food pyramid calls for a diet high in carbohydrates, such as grains, cereals, rice, etc., and a diet low in fats. With that said, why are obesity rates and diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's on the rise? Society is constantly told to exercise and follow proper nutrition guidelines.

Ok everybody, we are nearing the end of week #2 of our #makeitorbreak it challenge! The next challenges will start in about 8 days! I gotta say, I have stuck to the make drinking water a habit challenge. Before this challenge, I never felt thirsty, now I do. I actually drink more than I need to on a couple days. I have noticed that the wrinkles that have been coming in are actually going away and my skin overall is much better! I'll take it! As far as breaking the habit of no calories after dinner, I have not been perfect.

 OK...so, the long holiday weekend is over! Time to get back to the grind! Many clients have asked me about detoxing/cleansing, etc. after several days (or weeks!) of binging. While I don't advocate for detox diets or special cleansing drinks, I do have a few tips that I hope will help:

Meal prepping is exactly what it sounds like. Preparing several meals in advance to get the nutrition you need, save money, and be prepared.Dial in your nutrition by planning out meals for the week and hitting adequate protein and fat while consuming high-quality carbohydates.Save money by not having to splurge on work lunches and by buying in bulk - don’t be going out for lunch several times per week. Your wallet and body weight will thank you!

Recently, an injured shoulder has forced me to make my workouts less intense and has also meant I'm restricted in day-to-day movements. No doubt this means I'm currently expending less energy than I usually would be, which puts my balance of energy intake vs expenditure, at risk.My solution to maintaining control has been to track calories and, a bit more losely, macro-nutritents.
