Points. I just want to be able to enjoy my life and somehow fit into my skinny jeans. Is that too much to ask?”“I want to lose weight, but I don’t want to focus on the scale.

3 Reasons Most Diets Fail

3 Reasons Most Diets Fail

PROJECT LIGHT WELLNESS WORKSHOP #1 3 Key Reasons Why Most Diets Fail & How to Avoid Common Pitfalls Before we begin the Project Light Wellness Workshop series, there's something you should know about me... And please don't laugh (too hard). I used to believe that: ▪️six packs were the marker of success 🙄...I know. ▪️if a workout didn’t make me sweat, shake and “burn out,” what’s the point? ▪️writing down everything you eat is the only way to lose weight #crazymaking ▪️carbs = 👿. Fat too. ▪️my weight defined my worth as a fitness professional (and as a woman🤭). That last one breaks my heart. Not only because I struggled with my body image. or because my self-confidence yo-yoed with my weight ...but because I know I’m FAR from alone. My passion for fitness began when I was young. Too young. It stemmed from a desire to feel good inside and out, although I don't know that my childhood self would have used those exact words. I loved how dancing, ice skating, biking and even running...

New to Yoga? 3 Tips to Get You Started with Confidence

New to Yoga? 3 Tips to Get You Started with Confidence

Do you want to try yoga, but aren't sure where to begin? Have you signed up for a class but felt like an outsider? In the video below, I'll share my 3 (unconventional) tips with you about beginning a yoga practice with confidence, presence and a sense of humor.  But first, I've got to tell you: I get it.  I know how it feels to want to get into something that you hear is beneficial... but then feeling LOST about where to begin. While yoga has been my passion, my therapy and my job for 14-years, I nearly ran out of my first meditation class. I wish I was joking. I went in with confidence. I  thought I was a mindful person. I mean, I had done my fair share of self-reflection during my yoga teacher training and I found great value in the silence and stillness in my yoga practice. However, meditation felt completely foreign to me. My sneaky A-type personality convinced me that there had to be a "right" way...

3-Minute Journaling

3-Minute Journaling

Do you ever feel like you're completely, utterly STUCK?I remember feeling like I was swirling down a helpless sink hole during my first winter in Chicago.I was in my early twenties (which feels like a lifetime ago) and I was working 12-16 hour days, commuting on public transit to four different gyms and studios all over the city,  and I was creeping towards my heaviest weight ever. It's always difficult to not feel at home in your skin, but I felt an extra layer of shame because I was a fitness professional. It was my job to help people live healthier lives... and here I was, approaching severe exhaustion and extreme hopelessness about my own health. I don't know when or how, but one beautiful spring day, a LIGHT BULB switched on in my head. Out of nowhere, I realized:I don't have to live this way. This doesn't need to be my reality any longer.Money had been my biggest concern, and...

10-Minute Yoga Class

10-Minute Yoga Class

10-Minute At-Home Yoga One morning, it all just clicked. I had been feeling sorry for myself. I found myself in complaint-mode too often. I mean, I had been to ONE solo yoga class since Max was born. One class in 15 months.I never get any time to myself, I shouted internally.And then I did something crazy.I started consciously breathing... and moving.I reached my arms up, drank in a deep inhalation, and started stretching.Max usually tells me to "sit, sit" when I start moving my body in strange ways. He pulls at my hands and says, "off," when I try to plank or push-up.But on this particular morning, as if he could sense how much his mama needed this little win, Max kept playing.I indulged in a little forward fold... Max kept playing. I dared to lunge, to twist, to plank and downdog... and my mama-obsessed, busy little boy kept playing. It was a toddler miracle!In reality, yoga doesn't work for us in every moment....

The 30-Minute Postpartum Workout SECRET that Changed Everything

The 30-Minute Postpartum Workout SECRET that Changed Everything

The Story Behind the Movement https://youtu.be/cn90L5FuFJQ When I first decided to get back into working out with an unpredictable newborn schedule, I had three notable options: a) Randomly piece my own workouts together, praying that I'd "make" time or "find" energy. I had an idea about what I "should" do, but I couldn't quite get there. I lacked an intentional plan, so I ended up feeling frazzled, frustrated and like I was wasting precious time rushing through a workout that left me feeling more stressed out than when I started. b) Drop serious money on a gym membership, yoga classes or maybe even a personal trainer. Sure I'd appreciate the structure, but I couldn't afford that time away from home and I didn't have it in me to research the most cost effective option. Great resources, just not my path at this season in my life. c) "Press play" on a video workout. Honestly, this method worked on and off for me, but that was precisely...

7-Exercises to Transform Your Body (with a Toddler)

DOWNLOAD THE TOTAL BODY WORKOUT GUIDE You may relate to this... My child is a wonderful, sweet, explorative little person.But he won't leave my side.I know in about 12 years, I'll miss his need for "Mama" to "carry" him everywhere.  (Maybe I'll miss that...) But right now, I come close to insanity by the end of the day IF I don't make a little time for myself. As the sun starts to shine, I'm looking forward to taking our workouts outside, but just in case you need some rain day motivation, I have a mindset trick to share with you, which may sound silly (or as Max says "siwwy, siwwy, siwwy," but this simple mindset shift completely removed the pressure I had placed on myself to make a conventional workout "fit perfectly" into my day.Last winter, when I felt my mood and outlook start to dip, I knew I had to make a big mind-body-heart shift. Movement is the gateway to transformation in my...

Barre Workout for Any-BODY

Barre Workout for Any-BODY

Do you have images (of yourself) that you look back on and just laugh?I've got to say, watching myself point at my preggo belly in this video makes me both cringe and giggle every time.In some ways, I feel like pregnancy allowed my inner dork to emerge more than ever… and in other ways, I KNOW it made me stronger than I ever imagined I could be. (More on that another time.)But my favorite thing about this workout isn’t that Mr. Max was in my belly (who at the time, we fondly called JoJo) or that I had felt him kick earlier in the week (I’ll blame his movement on my goofy smile).My favorite part of this workout is that this lower body series can truly be done anywhere at any time with anyone. Whether you’re six months preggo*, stuck in an office, wearing a baby, chasing a toddler or enjoying a unicorn moment by yourself, you can take advantage of...
