ELS Boot Camp and ELS Massage & Personal Training Have A New Name!

Hey! So I have an important announcement to make, and it involves the name of the biz, or bizzes, to be exact. Is “bizzes” a word? Oh well, it is now! Anywho, as many, many people know, the name of my training studio has always been “ELS Massage & Personal Training.” That’s what I named it 10 years ago, and that’s what I thought it would always be. Truth be told I always liked the name “The Body Shop,” ...

Change Your Focus, Change Your LIFE!

A couple weeks ago I had a consultation with an awesome lady. She’d lost a bit of weight on her own, but reached that plateau that is so mind-boggling frustrating. She’d worked her butt off, saw some results, got frustrated, worked “harder,” saw a little change, got angry and pushed through, then hit a plateau. Sound familiar? When she took a breath I asked what her goals were and she rambled off about 5 or ...

Can You Implement These Simple Diet and Workout Tips?

Hey! How’s your weekend coming?  As of this instant, it is mid-afternoon on a beautiful Sunday and Nolan just woke up from his nap.  I was going to say Nolan was napping and Maren was coloring in her room, but I just heard the tell-tale signs of a 1-year old awakening...crying :) I am currently sitting in my “office” at home, which is really just a desk in the corner of our dining room - I lost my office wh ...

Meal Timing Questions?

Ever been confused about what to eat and when to eat it? Should you eat a protein only breakfast or have some carbs and fat too? What about meal timing for a workout?  Do you have to have a protein shake immediately after your workout if you want to see results? Do you need to have a protein and carb snack before your workout to provide you with the energy you need to make it through the workout and perform ...

Boot Camp Smoothie Challenge

Well, another week and another Challenge! How have you been doing with these over the past few weeks. We started with the fruit and fat, then moved on to the timing of water drinking - all of which are simple to implement, but not always easy. Does my reasoning for asking you to do these Challenges make sense? Remember we’re not trying ot make HUGE, drastic changes in a short time because that’s what leads ...

Diet and Workout Round-Up

Sunday is usually the day I get caught up on reading. Well, I try at least.  When you have a 5-year old and 1-year old things don’t always go as planned :) So in honor of my reading day, I figured I’d share the love with you and help you get caught up on your reading, and your reading is going to be so much more fun than mine. Why?  A couple reasons. First, I’m reading about the science of food creation.  W ...

Weekly Nutrition Challenge

So how’d you do with last week’s Challenge? Was it easy?  I know it was simple, but simple ain’t always easy. One thing you can’t say is that it was difficult to implement.  Adding the fruit and fatty foods on a regular basis is, in theory, easy to implement.  All it takes is some planning. One thing I ask my clients is to plan ahead.  Don’t leave your day to chance - plan it out.  Plan your meals, snacks a ...

Simple Lunch Swaps To Help You Lose Weight

In talking with my clients over the years, lunch is often the “deal breaker” in terms of eating healthy vs. eating junk. Why? To be totally honest I don’t know…it doesn’t make sense to my trainer brain.  Lunch should be relatively simple.  Just plan ahead so you don’t let your food-starved brain make the decision and you’ll be fine. But in the real world, where not everyone lives with my trainer brain (and ...

Boot Camp Nutrition Challenge

Hey hey! I’ve been thinking about doing something a bit differently lately... I know that can be scary, but this is going to be fun. Every Monday, for the next 10-12 weeks, I am going to share a Challenge with you. Some weeks may be nutrition related, others may be exercise/workout related and some may be more ‘mental.’ I’ve been in this game for quite some time and I know Monday is usually the day when peo ...
