New Year, Stronger U

Happy New Year! How’s your first week of January?? I am getting SO much done that I have been putting off, so I feel like I’m crushing it! I’m kicking off the new year with a MUCH delayed review on Stronger U, the nutritional coaching service I used last year. I kept putting off writing this post (I finished the program in September), but I’m really glad I did because I feel like now is the perfect time with New Year’s resolutions! Or maybe I put it off because who really wants to put before and after pictures out there into the world?!? But I loved this program and am AMAZED by how well it works, so I’m excited to […]

Gift Guide for the Health Nut

Stronger U Q&A

Today I’m sharing with you a little more about the Stronger U diet, and why I chose to go this route.  I also have a Q&A with my coach to answer questions you may have! First I’ll tell you what brought me to Stronger U.  I KNOW I’m not ‘fat’ or even ‘big.’  But I am the quintessential example of weight creeping on slowly over the years.  When I was younger, I could eat whatever I wanted (within reason) and stay the same weight.  That was me my whole life: I didn’t have to fight to be skinny; I was just naturally thin.  As I’ve gotten older, I have found that I can’t just eat whatever I want.  But I […]
