19 Ways to Make Your Water More Interesting

If you're following any of my plans (or doing the #EASEINTOKETO challenge!), you know I recommend drinking half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day. Those ounces add up—if we're being honest, even a water lover like me could use some variation.

So, how do we combat water fatigue? Try some of these add-ins to make your water more interesting!

Whole30 Progress Report: The First Trimester

Whole30 Progress Report: The First Trimester

I wrote this little essay my first time doing a Whole30 in January 2014 when my eating habits are NOT what they are today. Although I tried to eat salads and forced down oatmeal and things of that nature, prior to Whole30 I was eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) that many of you may eat. To say Whole30 changed my entire way of thinking of food would be an understatement. This time around, Whole30 is not such a shock to my system as it is not very different from the way I normally eat, but I remember it being a MAJOR adjustment at the time. So, I decided to post this today, on Day 10 of my current Whole30, because I felt people could relate to it! Hope you enjoy :)

The Glow Getter Takes on Whole 30...are you up for the challenge?

The Glow Getter Takes on Whole 30...are you up for the challenge?

I've started right away on my resolutions, hitting the gym running training for my first century bike ride in June (it's never too early to start!), planning my first big trip for April, and meditating regularly. All that's awesome, but since I'm here to keep it real with you, I'll tell you one area that hasn't been so great: my diet.

As a health coach, many people expect me to be perfect and on diet all the time, but the truth of the matter is, nobody's perfect. I don't even strive to be! After the holiday season, I could definitely use a "reset," if you will. For this, I turn to the Whole 30. This is my third year in a row starting the new year this way, and it really helps to get my cravings in check and get my body feeling healthy again. Sounds great, right? Let’s all do a Whole 30!

The Secret Weapon to Achieving Your Goals: The Accountability Partner

I'll let you in on a little secret—I've been known to procrastinate from time to time. Okay, it's not that big of a secret. I mean, I did write a whole blog post about it. But still. It's a thing.

If always left to my own devices, I might just procrastinate my day away, accomplishing very little in the way of my goals. Luckily for me, I’ve got a secret weapon in my back pocket: an accountability partner.

Planning Your New Year's Resolutions: Making Goals that Matter

Planning Your New Year's Resolutions: Making Goals that Matter

Well, Glow Getters, it’s that time of year again. The holidays are over, and after a couple weeks of overindulging, both with your diet at holiday gatherings and with your wallets shopping for gifts (for others or for yourself – no judgment here), you’re probably looking forward to a fresh start when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. If you’re like me, you’ve heard (and cringed at) the phrase “New Year, New Me” countless times in the past couple weeks. The saying itself may be trite, but it’s gained traction for a reason – the new year is a great time to evaluate where we’ve been and where we’d like to go.

Before we make our resolutions, let’s take some time to reflect on the past year and think about our goals for the one coming up. This guide will get you ready to make New Year’s Resolutions that actually mean something to you, making them more easy to attain.
