This past weekend it was my honor to present on the topic of "Psychological Wellness" at the Albuquerque Strength and Conditioning Clinic, held annually for fitness professionals and interested public at the JCC of Greater Albuquerque
As the warm, sunny days of summer wane, you might find it more challenging to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Fresh-picked produce is less accessible, and autumn tempts with comfort foods and holiday goodies. Don’t let cooler weather and overcast days become your excuse to make unhealthy eating choices. Stick with your nutritious habits during the next few months to maintain a healthy weight, prevent colds and illness, and stay energized through the fall and winter.
In previous blogs, I discussed CHANGE and how to ADD to your days in order to better your lives. In this blog, I will continue the discussion of CHANGE and talk about pushing yourself past your comfort zone.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be compassionate when you help others on their path to wellness, health and fitness. People come to you, oftentimes as a “last resort”, after years of struggling with either some medical problems or weight issues or nutritional habits. It is extremely hard for them to book that first date with the fitness professional, come to the meeting, sit down, open up right away and pour out all the worries, problems and stress, as they see the person for the first time in their life.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I hope you all will enjoy my blog post this week. Today I want to address the major issue that I'm still coming across as a personal trainer and lifestyle coach. It all comes down to food yep, one of the most important element for living a healthy and happy lifestyle and yet people continue to make the same old mistakes every time.
We've all been there before: dieting and exercising hard for months, dropping 98% of that excess visceral fat, but then... WE GET STUCK?! Impossible! You've been getting 6-8 hours of sleep more often than not, have eaten well a vast majority of the time and continue pushing your threshold in the gym. What gives? Aren't those three things the keys to avoiding a plateau and continual success? The answer: Yes and No.
