Well, I’m currently in my 37th week of pregnancy and I’m finally getting around to writing about the last couple of months! Honestly, I’ve been feeling really good, which is why I think I’ve waited so long to recap. I almost feel like there’s nothing to tell (and then I end up writing a damn…Details
Hey! I’m Keri and I teach women how to realistically reach their health and fitness goals through a Lifestyle of Efficient exercise and Automated Nutrition (L.E.A.N). In this community, we focus on simple, real life strategies and solutions to feeling your best, both inside and out.
My goal is to educate women on the reasons why diets and excessive exercises don’t work long-term, and to reinforce the fact that lasting physical change really does start from the inside.
So why should you listen to me? Because I’ve been there, done that, and I have a better way!
I’m a wife and a working mom (twin boys born in 2010). I have been in the fitness field since 1997, received my Masters Degree in Applied Exercise Science in 2002 and have worked as a strength coach and a personal trainer since. I’ve tried just about everything out there. Diets, workouts, cleanses etc..you name it and I’ve probably tried it. All this in hopes of getting a better physique. It wasn’t until 2010 that I finally started to listen and accept my body, trust my food choices, and do what worked for ME.
I want to empower and educate you to do the same. I invite you to join me as I share with you how to live your version of “The LEAN Life”.
This is not the best picture of Saturday night’s dinner in the North End, but trust me, it was fabulous 🙂 This picture illustrates me continuing to *practice* leaving a little space at the end of a meal. In other words, eating until I’m *just* satisfied – maybe even a little UN-satisfied…like…Details
Each month of the year we have a theme in my online coaching group. And because February is the month of “LOVE”, our theme for the month will be self-care and self-love. One thing that has become SO apparent to me over the last few years is that we don’t do enough of this for…Details
Ever feel like you just don’t want to go to the gym? Or maybe you’d rather go through the Dunkin Donuts drive through instead of making yourself eggs and veggies for breakfast (like me this morning?). Does choosing one over the other mean that we are not disciplined enough? Or not motivated? I’ve…Details
This is part 2 in my first trimester re-cap. If you missed part one, you can read it here. As I’m writing this, I’m just starting my 17th week. Almost half way there! Well, kind of. I’m leaning towards a scheduled c-section and that will be done in my 39th week, so I’m counting backwards from…Details
A topic we discuss quite often in my coaching group is gratitude. Which is funny because years ago gratitude, affirmations, mantras, and goal setting are things that I used to look at as a complete waste of time. All I was interested in was following a meal plan and working out hours on end to…Details
It’s that time of year again. Time to reflect back on the past year and look towards next. Pretty soon everyone and their mother is going to be talking about their New Year’s resolutions and giving you their opinion on if you should make them or not. The way I look at it, whether…Details
September 30th, 2016 Our 11 year wedding anniversary. We have a tradition that every year on our anniversary, we watch our absolutely hilarious wedding video. But because my husband had a football game on our actual anniversary (he’s a high school football coach), we decided to watch the video the night before. After watching our…Details
A couple of weeks ago I was in Nashville for an event. This event was all about transformation, but there was absolutely ZERO talk of what to eat and how to exercise to transform….it was ALL about the power of our thoughts, taking responsibility, focusing on simplicity and owning our choices. One of the examples of simplicity that…Details
Being “on vacation” looks a lot different these days than it did in the past. Previously, vacations would include feeling the need to wake up before everyone else to go on a 45 minute run so that I could attempt to “burn off” what I ate the night before, or to justify the choices…Details
When someone signs up for my VIP list, I send out an email asking them to fill me in on their biggest struggle. Is it nutrition? Exercise? Mindset? or Motivation? I’d say 90% of the responses I read say motivation is the thing they struggle with the most. The motivation to eat well, to exercise, to…Details
Looking like I just stepped out of 2001 with my Abercrombie & Fitch bootcut buttonflys 🙂Seeing that I live in leggings, I can go weeks without putting on clothes that I actually have to fit into if I didn’t make it a point to do so.Let me explain why I STILL use these jeans and…Details
