Been receiving a lot of inquires lately regarding carbs. We are confused about them, aren’t we? Some of us are scared of them. Others believe they are evil and are the sole cause of obesity. While others insist, we need carbs! Of course we do, especially if we want to gain muscle and have enough …

I used to think that the people who thought about food the most were the leanest.
I thought, it’s the people who aren’t conscious about food that end up eating everything in sight, unable to stop themselves.
I have to tell you–I am changing my tune on that. I think there’s a bell-shaped curve when it …

“Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.” ~Gordon B. Hinckley
I grew up in an Irish Catholic family. To say you did things out of obligation or guilt is an understatement.
It was the only MO I really knew.
And it’s funny–when I first started working with my spiritual coach 3 years ago, we talked …

You ever feel like you just need to tell someone off?
You feel like you just NEED this person to KNOW how you feel about something? Because it’s THAT important to you. They need to hear YOUR truth. It’s THAT urgent for your own sense of peace.
I felt that way recently. And I want to …

Two weeks ago, I launched my most honest and open project yet–the #GetBetter Mindset Guide. In it, I address not only many of the psychological and mindset topics we discuss often here at JillFit, but quite a bit on the topic of relationships–both with ourselves and interacting with our closest family and friends.
It was …

Considering today is the liggity LAST DAY of the #LiftWeightsFaster program launch (and the last chance to secure my THREE free JIllFit bonuses), and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the actual workouts, I wanted to give you gals a chance to try one of Jen’s workouts on your own.
This workout called, …

In order to attain a very lean physique, it takes a certain amount of obsession.
And I say that with zero unkindness and with no judgment. It’s just a fact. It’s difficult to attain a super lean body without prepping and cooking your meals at home for the week. It’s nearly impossible to achieve a …

You might not know this, but in conventional medicine, “chronic fatigue syndrome” is NOT actually recognized as a legitimate diagnosis because they can’t test for it nor treat it . And yet “fatigue” is the #1 reason why people go to see their physicians.
And yet adrenal fatigue manifests in women all the time, and …

Intermittent sampling, v.: the practice of tasting everything, and binging on nothing. Use it to teach yourself the art of moderation.
I recently mentioned Intermittent Sampling in a post on how to stop eating a million calories every night. And it dawned on me that nothing else, in the last 3 years, has helped me …

Cheat meals used to be the highlight of my week. I did them for a long time, especially when I was competing and modeling a lot more. I even made a video of my crazy Reese’s Pieces ritual!
But then I used to dread the rest of the week. Because if I wasn’t eating clean …

Success is an attitude. It’s a mindset.
And it’s not a coincidence that all successful people share a few similar thinking patterns. It’s The Success Mindset. And it’s not luck. Or chance. It’s a deliberate effort.
I read the book, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson and it’s all about cultivating the mindset of a …

Aaaaaah! When JillFit Ambassador Maryalice Goldsmith approached me with the idea to write an article about calorie-counting, I loved the idea! I think the one thing that actually saved me from moving into full-blown adrenal fatigue and metabolic damage when I was competing was that I never counted calories. (Oh no, I just cut out …

I don’t blame you for wanting to eat everything you can possibly get your hands on at night.
A few months ago, I was called in for jury duty. I had never been and was fairly happy about being able to sit and read a book for 8 hours straight. I thought, this can’t be …

I remember 3 years ago when I was dealing with some personal struggles and I had an amazing spiritual coach working with me. His message, though he never really said it like this, was: take responsibility for everything.
I hated that.
I hated it because at the time I thought taking responsibility was the same …

Recently, I was pulled into two separate situations where I was confronted with what I consider to be “drama”–negative energy, name-calling, …

I am beyond excited to feature a guest post today, by my good friend and “gorgeous” best-selling author Esther Blum, RD, of Living Gorgeous. Esther and I have been friends since her first book, Eat, Drink and Be Gorgeous came out years ago, and over the years it’s been a pleasure to watch her grow …

Every new year, I post my favorite ways to make the most of the coming year. Check last year’s post here.
Over the last few years, I’ve been so fortunate to have been given opportunities and experiences to meet and work with so many amazing women–online and in-person. To say I’m grateful is an understatement.
