New Q&A Vlog – Your Fitness & Nutrition Frustrations Solved!

Well, I’m finally home after my two back-to-back trips to Maui with my Dad and Brother and Chicago to watch R in the US Golf Amateur Championship. Both of the trips were so great and very different. Maui was relaxing, filled with lots of workouts, healthy seafood, protein pancakes, and beach time. If you haven’t checked out my Maui vlog, you’ll want to watch it for a glimpse into my booty workout and a recipe for my 150-calorie, low-carb, gluten-free protein pancakes! This past week in Illinois was an extremely busy, exhilarating whirlwind of golf, family, not so healthy food (hello Chicago pizza), and nonexistent workouts (except for the 4-5 miles of walking each day at the gorgeous Olympia Fields Golf Course)!

After countless hours of studying, practice in the gym, and about 400 flash cards, I passed my test. Since I have been researching and exploring nutrition and fitness on my own as a hobby for the past 6 years (ever since working the Front Desk at Equinox Fitness in Los Angeles whilein college), a lot of the training principles in the course were reinforcing the concepts I already knew.

How to Train Your Brain to Reach Your Fitness Goals – And Why It’s Key!

You know that feeling you get when your heart sinks, your stomach’s in knots, your breathing becomes short, and your heart rate increases? Most of us associate these feelings with anxiety, or some threat to our survival.
