The thing I love about these chicken meatball wraps is that you can adjust your protein intake so easily. They are just as tasty wrapped in lettuce for 0 carbs, as they are in pillowy pita bread. Because each meatball is 7 grams of protein, you get to choose how much or how little protein […]

Mediterranean Chicken Meatball Wraps

There is no denying that getting in shape can be expensive. Even an economical route will inevitably cost a few dollars here and there as you begin your fitness project. The deeper we go, the more we spend (because it’s fun and we want to, not necessarily because we need more.) So, what is the […]

The Cost of Muscle

Summer is upon us, and that means barbecues, parties, and nights eating out on the patio with your friends. Want to make a party super uncomfortable super fast?

The Palm Method

Everyone needs a little convenience from time to time. Often breakfast is the first thing to go early in our day because it is inconvenient to spend time making it instead of sluggin’ our coffee on the way out the door, or heading to the local Starbucks to grab a breakfast sandwich.

Step Tracking, Yay or Nay?

Summer is basically in full swing. Here in the PNW that means sunny and 75 most days, and anything over 80 is a heat wave! My gym is already getting a little warmer too. Sports bra only it is! I once worked at a gym (that shall remain nameless.) Let me describe it for you. […]

This week features a client spotlight – I have teamed up with client and best friend of 16 years, Lacey, to share this super simple, macro friendly recipe with you!

Client Spotlight

As a woman, a mother, a wife, a fitness professional I can say that my ideal weight has changed so much over the years. Back in high school and college my ideal weight was 1 lb less than my best friend or sister. Think “The Price is Right”; best friend weighs 135 lb? My ideal […]

How to find your ideal weight.

Have you ever dedicated yourself to a transformation challenge? The kind where you sign up for 30 days of cardio, food logging, burpees, whatever! Inevitably during the challenge you step on the scale only to see that it has creeped up during all your hard work, not down. WTF! Some well meaning friend or family […]
