“After many years of trying to figure out this whole ‘eat clean but tasty’ lifestyle, I’ve learned that you can actually have both, as long as it’s real food that the earth provides.”


Forgive and Forget

“The one thing I think people do is try to go all out and restrict themselves. If you indulge one day then go back to your normal routine the next day, not all is lost just because you had a little fun.”



Put YOU First

“I usually take care of my needs first and foremost. If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t possibly take care of others. It’s a practice, then a mindset.”


Don’t Be Motivated, Get Disciplined 

“I don’t find motivation to tackle a new year; I find discipline in my day-to-day to have the motivation to keep fighting for the things I want and how I want to feel.”

“New year, new day, new hour—it’s all the same if you really think about it. Not every moment is going to be your best, but trust me, if you’re trying a little bit every day, then I promise that you are indeed doing your best.”
