RECIPE: Coconut 'NO'atmeal

I LOVE oatmeal. I really do. It's warm and satisfying. It can be made into many different flavors. It's also very convenient to have on my busy mornings at work! 

BUT - sometimes I need something more low-carb. Sometimes I need something higher fat. That is when I LOVE to make NOatmeal! 

It's similar to oatmeal but there are no oats in it. Instead it has lots of health-packed seeds and coconut. 

If you give this a try, I'd love to hear what you think! Drop a comment and tell me, or even better, make sure you're in my free Facebook group and post about it or tag me on Instagram!

What You Need to Know About Protein Shakes

The fitness industry - and many coaches/personal trainers - make it seem like protein shakes are THE WAY to get results. They all talk about the shake they drink, and how it’s the reason they have melted fat and gotten hella muscle gains. But IS that why they are getting those results? Will it work that way for you? Let’s talk about this.

Here’s the thing you need to understand: protein powder is NOT a requirement, or a necessity, when it comes to weight loss, leaning out, toning up, or really anything.

Protein shakes have been massively misrepresented in the fitness industry, and I want to shed some light on this topic.

Protein shakes do not have any kind of magical properties or special ingredients that are going to be THE magic potion to help you lose fat and gain muscle. That just isn’t true, and it’s not backed by science either. No matter what supplements you are taking, you are still going to have to put in work. There will be discipline,...

10 Tips for Enjoying the Holidays without Sabotaging Your Progress!

Tis the holiday season! I recently did a poll in my Facebook group and found that everyone DOES want to stay on track over the holidays, which is fantastic! So, I have put together a list of my top tips for enjoying the holidays, but still staying on track with your goals!

1. Start the Day off Right

The morning of a Holiday can be pretty tough. It’s easy to want to be lazy, and not pay attention to our normal routines. It’s also easy to be too busy to stick to our routines! Instead of throwing out all sense of reason, or allowing yourself to break from your normal routine, be intentional about it! Go for a walk with the family, or do a quick workout. Drink your protein shake like you usually do, and eat the way you normally eat!

2. Eat All Your Meals

People often assume it’s better to not eat all day until the holiday meal. Like they are “saving their calories”. But I’m here to tell ya… that is the WORST thing you can do! Eat your normal...

IIFYM

So far I have talked about what my new goals are for my physical body composition changes and strength gains. And I have shared with you what my calories and macro goals are (see previous posts!), and even how I am going to monitor and know when I need to adjust.

But I haven’t really gone into what exactly I’m doing in terms of how this is going to be executed. Well, it’s actually called IIFYM, or If It Fits Your Macros. This concept is currently taking the fitness world by storm. Basically, it is the concept of being able to eat pretty much whatever you want, as long as you stay in your macros! It’s also called Flexible Dieting.

I have never taken this approach before, since I have never been a fan of counting calories or macros. But I can see why it will be potentially beneficial. The reasoning is, rather than having to have a bunch of food that is “off limits” or deprive and restrict yourself, you are free to indulge in treats, or even pizza...
