I once received an email from a woman who was going through a hard time in her relationship with her husband of 30 years. Without her saying it in so many words, I gleaned that infidelity was somehow involved and she had made the decision to stay with him and they were trying to work …

If you’re like most women, you struggle with some insecurities and self-doubt. On some level, you don’t think you’re good enough.
Maybe you pepper your language with “shoulds” and apologize for being you, or maybe you preface everything with a, “I know I need to be better…” or maybe you self-judge constantly, saying something and …

I am in the middle of launching my 4-Week Food Obsession Boot Camp, which begins this Sunday June 1st, and as I put the finishing touches on the content for the online course, I’m fully realizing the many factors that go into hyperawareness around food. And probably 90% of it is mindset work, with the …

We’ve all heard of the fear of failure. Most of us experience this often, and it manifests in many ways: fear of rejection, fear of not making the cut, fear of not living up to our full potential, fear of exposing our flaws, being ridiculed, etc.
The fear of failure can keep us paralyzed in …

OH MY this is a juicy topic! And I am so excited to discuss it!
See, over the last 2 weeks, I’ve been privy to about 5 different conversations all revolving around the concept of envy, specifically the feeling we get when we see someone we know being successful and the resulting feelings we experience …

I realized something recently: I don’t want to work that hard.
See, I posted last week on Twitter the questions I often ask myself when it comes to nutrition. Instead of, “what foods will help me get lean?” and, “how can I lose 10 lbs by summer?” I ask things like:
How effortless does this …

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 …

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 …
