Historically, women have been advised to stop exercising when they became pregnant, with many physicians and healthcare professionals treating pregnancy as an illness or disability. Women were also told to increase their caloric intake, creating a system set up for elevated maternal weight and subsequent obesity. DA FUQ?

Muscle is beautiful. Muscle is powerful. And muscle is darn right magical when you think about it! A muscle contracts or releases in order to pull our bones closer together or farther apart, which creates movement. But muscle also makes us look hot as hell and enables us to do really cool things at the gym. And carry our bottles of wine home from Trader Joe's.

It's pretty common for those pursuing a life of health and hotness to fall off the wagon from time to time. After all, modern times ask a lot of all of us. It's hard enough just balancing our family, social, and professional obligations. Carving out time for self care can easily fall by the wayside.

Every so often a person or an experience comes into your life, and you know that he/she/it will remain a part of you for a very long time. Beyond that, there is a feeling you get that cannot be explained and a sense of limitless gratitude for which no words seem adequate to express. For me, this is MFF and the incredible team of trainers who have been by my side for the last 4 years.

If you knew me 10 years ago, you would never guess that I would end up traveling the world speaking about meditation. I wouldn't have guessed it either. I was on Broadway at the time, understudying three of the leads inA Chorus Line. I was also suffering from anxiety, had been struggling with insomnia for eighteen months, and was going grey at the tender age of 26. So here I was living my dream on stage, but backstage I was rocking myself in the fetal position listening to Eckhart Tolle praying I wouldn't be thrown on with a moment's notice. I was desperate for a solution, so when a fellow castmember told me she swore by meditation I thought, what do I have to lose?

There was a time that I quite literally LIVED on convenience food (bring on the coffee, the Cheez-its, the Ramen, the fruit snacks and theproteinbars).Convenience food was my JAM when I was in graduate school and I'm not sure I would have actually survived without it, as we were in class and rehearsal from 9am-11pm with 20 minute breaks that we used to run to the other side of campus. Ahhh acting school! Convenience food saved me in a sense but my energy levels were shot from eating all the processed food. My skin was a mess and my weight was all over the place. I've come a LONG way from that place (if my old selfcould only see what I'm doing now), and now work with my clients to focus on crowding health, fresh, whole food into their diets and their lives so they can lose weight naturally and sustainably without guilt and deprivation).
