Here’s the biggest, darkest secret of weight loss: there is no secret.
The answer, in its most clinical form, is a math problem- and its right in front of our faces every day.
The truth is- you CAN eat anything that you want. No, not if you have a food allergy, this isn’t about that. But guess what? I was my heaviest when I was dieting and eliminating foods from my diet. MY HEAVIEST.
Does it take some time and work and patience to fine-tune your newfound liberty around foods so that it can work for you? YES. But, you won’t feel so crazy, you won’t feel so anxious, and you won’t be on a damn diet anymore white-knuckling your way to some proverbial happy ending that you’ve made up in your head.
You can eat anything you want and have the body you want- I promise.

I used to think that I was the healthiest lifestyle queen out there. I worked out with tons of intensity every day of the week for years. And then it occurred to me- what good is this if I just go back home and park my ass on the couch for the rest of the day?
Don’t get me wrong- exercise and intentional movement NEEDS to stay in your life in my opinion- but- is it really the end all be all? What implications does the REST of our day have on our quality of life?

Back in 2014, I felt a pain in my neck that left me on the couch unable to move for 4 days. It eventually went away. A few weeks later, I noticed that I was numb on the left side of my upper back, and the numbness ran down a portion of my left arm and into my pinky. Being the genius that I am, I ignored it for as long as I could. After one workout in particular, my left hand was completely paralyzed for almost 30 minutes. That scared me enough to see a doctor. After an MRI, they found 3 slipped discs in my neck, and 3 more in my lower back. They also found that I had a 30 degree curvature of my spine in one direction, and a 17 degree curve in the other direction. I was sentenced for a life-long journey of back discomfort and pain management. I was able to rehab myself back underneath a barbell, competed in several Crossfit competitions and made it to the platform of a powerlifting meet. In December 2017, I endured 5 consecutive weeks of back pain that left me unable to put my own socks, pants, or shoes on without writhing pain. My doctor told me that my next steps would be back surgery. I walked out of her office with pain medication and no game plan. Until I came across Dr. Jocelyn Wallace, who single-handedly helped rehab my back. No pain medication, no sentence of a surgery, no gloom-and-doom threat of never touching a barbell again. This episode ROCKED MY WORLD! If you have a body, this episode is for you. Listen to it 1,000 times if you have to- take notes. Listen with the intention to learn and absorb.

File this episode under: things that fire Christina up 🙂 Ever wonder what the mystical missing piece of the fitness puzzle is? It actually is pretty magical- this one thing will quite literally allow you to workout LESS and get better results.

This episode is for you, sister!
