Tired of post lunch energy crashes?

If you’re like many of my career driven, high achiever clients, you likely know all about cravings and hitting the afternoon energy “wall” right? You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? It’s that time in the afternoon when your energy drops like a rock, and you find yourself headed to the kitchen or the break room at your office. You’re hungry and super tired, so you grab another coffee or diet cola, and of course some chocolate or a bag of chips.  I know how that story goes!

Feeling Bummed about your Body? This will help!

This time of year one of the most common things I hear about is how frustrated people are with their bodies and they way they look and feel. In fact, the most common “New Year’s Resolutions” such as losing weight and getting in shape are born from feeling completely fed up or frustrated with our bodies. That certainly can be a great motivator for change. But… Here’s the thing, Kristen, I totally get that you might be feeling bummed out about your body right now, but these well intentioned resolutions often don’t work. The reason they don’t work is usually because we aren’t clear on WHY we are feeling frustrated with our body, and WHY we want to lose that 20,30 or 50 pounds. Watch this week’s Tuesday Tip (holiday edition), where I share some powerful yet simple actions you can take right now to not only feel better about your body, but also get you super motivated to hit those healthy goals you set for 2017. Rather than beat yourself up and get all upset about your body right now, I invite you to watch this video, and ditch that negative vibe so you can enjoy the holidays AND

How to Shut Down Limiting Beliefs

We’ve all had those moments when that voice in our head talks to us and tries to bring us down, right? “I’m not good enough!”, “I’ll never lose this weight!”, or “Things are never going to work out!” What usually happens next is we tend to start judging ourselves and maybe start feeling frustrated for even having these thoughts. Then, we get MORE upset. It’s a never ending cycle of negativity that can be VERY hard to break. Well, since the New Year is right around the corner, I figured we should tackle this now! So, in this week’s tip, I am borrowing some wisdom from my good friend, Suzi Petrozzi, who just hosted me to speak at her Empowered Woman Live Retreat in Australia. She shared a wonderful process with her tribe about how to remove the power of limiting beliefs that really blew my mind. Check out this video tip below! I recorded this from beautiful Manly Beach, Australia, and learn how to stop a limiting belief in its tracks WITHOUT trying to fight against it.  I one of the most positive people I know, but guess what??? I’m human!  I have limiting beliefs just like you. When they
