    How to measure progress without the scale

    Raise your hand if you love stepping on the scale first thing in the morning, every morning! *insert 30 seconds of awkward silence and avoid eye contact* If you are not a fan of weighing yourself every day, you are most definitely not alone. The scale can be a powerful tool to track and measure weight loss progress. But it can also get the best of you. You may even get to the point where the number on the dial becomes more than a number (data) and starts having a little too much power... too much of a say in how you view yourself and what kind of progress you are making. “Oh my gosh - the scale went down today!

    Set goals the SMART way, so you can stick to them in 2022!

    It’s that time of year again: New Year’s Resolutions time. After the challenges 2021 has brought, the new year for many comes with sighs of relief and hope: hope that this year will be different, hope that this year will FINALLY be the year that things begin to change. While the prospect of the New Year is full of hope, the statistics of resulotions are not as much: only 8% of Americans that create New Year’s resolutions keep them all year, and 80% of those that make resolutions fail by February.

    Need to sneak a little extra protein into your morning oats? Try adding an egg!
