The Fit Fem never rests! I’m sure you know that about me already. So let me let you in on a little project I’ve been asked to be involved in. WHOOP WHOOP!
I’m super excited to tell you about a brand new magazine that’s just been released AND I’m a contributor in it!!! ENERGY To Thrive Magazine is the brainchild of my friend and colleague Jennifer Powter. Jen is a Weight Loss + Fitness Expert who believes that taking a holistic approach to health creates the best results so she’s gathered the smartest, most talented group of women in the coaching industry to share their thoughts and insights with you (and yes – I’m one of them!!!!).

Boy did I get a reaction on FB! I’ll show it to you in a hot sec but let me explain the scenario.
After finishing posting a pic of my new favorite green powder, which I add to my green smoothies, I scrolled down my newsfeed and ran into not 1, but 3 statuses about ‘nutritional cleansing’.
OK PET PEEVE!!!! (I will withhold the name of the company) I have huge disdain towards a company that markets and sells fat loss through “nutritional cleansing”. Essentially this company (and many other ones) promotes shakes and pills with eating only one meal a day (usually a salad because you know real food has real calories and we’re not allowed to have calories when we are trying to lose weight… GEEZ) and then encourages customers who have lost weight to become “nutritional cleansing coaches”.
I’m gonna hate on them right now. First, I used this product because of its promise of rapid fat loss. I took it = I got sick = Lupus. Second, the idea of regular people becoming coaches without investing in real education about food and its effects on the body makes my skin boil.
When I posted my opinion on FB, I couldn’t believe the responses I received. Check it out: 21 comments, 60 likes and counting…

Let me start off by saying how much I really LOVE YOU! And Happy Valentine’s Day!
Monday night was beautiful. It was my first real “speaking engagement” in a room of women entrepreneurs. (Let’s call them Fem’preneurs.)
I was nervous about speaking my truth in public. You see I have no problem writing my feelings and sharing my personal stories but when it comes to speaking, well that’s another animal. Be as it may, I still spoke MY TRUTH! I bared all!
My story? A fat kid, a body obsessed teen & adult, a diet pill addict, a chronic dieter and exerciser, and a woman living with Lupus. I shared my story because I know each and everyone of us have suffered in some way - whether it was body shaming, yo-yo-dieting, or an obsession with the treadmill.

We are a society wanting expedited solutions to everything – we look for things like the fastest service at a restaurant, the fastest way to get a degree, and my favorite, the fastest way to lose weight. We equate quality with getting things done fast.
But is it really true that when things get done fast, they get done right? How did this “getting fast results” thinking all begin? (If anyone knows the answer to this question, please do let me know!)
I feel like we live our whole lives feeling rushed. Like we are always missing out. We are addicted to instant gratification and we are addicted to the attention that comes from getting these fast results. Cmon, you and I both know we like to fish for compliments with our before and after selfies.
I don’t know about you, but this whole thing gets exhausting.
When was the last time you truly took your time, I mean really took your time, to work through something till the very end, and actually got a long lasting desired result?

What’s holding you back? You know when it comes to anything and everything, our minds play this really sneaky, sneaky game. It’s called “Let me make as many excuses as I can” game.
You know what I’m talking about right?
Before I tell you about this, I first want to congratulate our Fit Fem of the Month - January. Her name is Catherine Kearns! Let me tell you about about Cat. She is a mama of two and wife of one. (HA!) She works and she has a lot going on, just like the rest of us. She has worked so hard and,well, I’ll let her tell you the rest.

What a feeling? It was fantabulous!
Room packed full of women wanting to learn how to transform their lives through proper nutrition and fitness. I say transform their lives because it’s what you do when you decide it’s time to make a change. One small change whether it is through a meal, an exercise, or an act of self-care and love affects the whole, not just your body. We’re not just talking about losing inches, dropping a few pounds. We are talking about seriously loving your whole body and your whole life!
To give you a few takeways, here’s a recap of what we did at the New Year, New Body, New You event last Saturday.
Website Makeover OH YE
Can you feel my excitement (even though I woke up this morning with the sniffles, a headache, sore throat - I still worked out anyway, BY THE WAY!)?
This has been an 7 month project - everything from doing a new photoshoot, to new written content, to brainstorming on the brand and layout and….well ...it’s a LOT OF WORK!
