Why We LOVE Sugar & How To Take Back Control

Let’s talk about SUGAR! We all love it, buy it and eat it. I don’t think I’ve met a single person who told me they DON’T like sugar. I’ve also never met a person that didn’t know, it’s not good to have too much! If you think for a moment right now, can you describe or picture your favorite sweet treat? Does it make your mouth water? Can you remember the first time you tried it or the last time you had it? Now take a moment to picture your favorite vegetable. How do you prepare it? Have you always loved this vegetable? Do you get equally excited to have this vegetable as you do that sweet treat? Pr…

STAND UP TALL and be the BEST YOU!

Have you ever taken notice of your own posture or the posture of those you meet? This might sound strange to you but posture is the first thing I notice about a person. Kind of like a Dentist who probably notices someone’s teeth right away or a hair dresser that notices your hair first. I notice if you are slouching, leaning to one side or standing up tall. You may not think about it as often as I do, but take a day to notice each and everyone’s posture you come into contact with. Notice the energy, confidence and attitude the person exudes. Matter of fact, take a good look in the mirror and evaluat…

I Believe…

It’s Not About Me…It’s About We. I spent over 100K on my education and just threw it away! For a moment I thought I did!  But that all changed as life unfolded. I studied Exercise Physiology in college because I wanted to help people who were sick, get better. I wanted to be a healer, a provider, someone that could make a difference in another’s life. Every profession allows us to do this in some capacity right? You might be an accountant, let me just say, I couldn’t live without mine! Numbers were never my strong suite, so I had my eye on becoming a Cardiologist. After a few years working in h…

Are you living the “icy hot” lifestyle?

  I was watching a commercial the other day that was promoting “icy hot” therapy for low back pain. Instant relief for your pain! In just minutes you won’t even remember that your back is all kinds of ‘jacked up’. What they don’t show in that commercial is 3 hours later when the icy hot has worn off and the reality of your condition comes back. So many people suffering from low back pain, obesity, depression, indigestion or other illnesses absolutely need some way to relieve their symptoms in order to go about their day, there is no doubt. The frustration I have is when people start…

Were you able to catch me on TV?

It was surreal to watch our PopSugar segment on TV! It’s honestly the most humbling and exciting thing to have a moment when you see yourself living the dream you envisioned almost 9 years ago. I have to take a minute to extend my extreme gratitude to my mom for being the strongest and kindest human being I’ve ever known. She helped me develop a heart of giving and acceptance in my life. I’m grateful to my husband Vito La Fata for falling in love with me and dedicating his energy to fuel my ambition more than anyone I’ve ever known. My family and friends who have always lifted m…
