*Fitness is a Journey*

If you don't think getting fit is FUN then you are going through the journey with the WRONG people and the WRONG mindset! It's time to re-train your brain and get LIFE LONG results!

How I got started

I got married in Kauai, Hawaii in May 2015. I wanted to get in the BEST shape possible for my wedding! I tried *SO MANY* different workout programs (some free and some cost money). It was time consuming and the results did not match my hard work. I eventually discovered flex dieting + resistance training! It has changed my life! The workouts are short and effective. I never thought I could have ABS! I store fat (very quickly) in my gut so I thought abs were impossible for me! BUT in just a few short weeks, I was getting ab lines! I am constantly researching new products, workout strategies, and nutrition education to make sure I'm doing the most EFFECTIVE strategy out there. I decided to become a health & fitness coach to spread my knowledge and to prevent others from becoming frustrated and discouraged. Getting fit is fun as long as you're doing it with the right people AND doing a program that WORKS!

Sugar Cravings

My tips to overcome sugar cravings!

1. I budget for it REALISTICALLY in my MACROs. That means... If I want a brownie, I know I'll probably have 3. So I budget for what I think I'll ACTUALLY eat (3), not 1.

2.I chew gum after the sweets! It keeps my brain preoccupied from saying "MORE, MORE. MORE, MORE..." 

3. OR I avoid it completely so that I don't have to fight the urges of wanting more than one.

4. I drink lots of water AFTER I eat the sweets.

5. I use sugar free items: sugar free jello, stevia, sugar free syrup.... it helps me have a low caloric intake while STILL having the sweet taste.

6. I try to avoid artificial sugar throughout the day (as long as I'm not craving it) because even the smallest amounts can leave the sugary taste lingering in my mouth making me want MORE.

Try these out and see if it helps you reduce your daily sugar intake!
