What Keeps You Stuck from Reaching Your Health Goals?

Good health is hard to maintain and reaching health goals can be a challenge. With all the responsibilities of life, it can be difficult to find the time or energy to prioritize your own wellbeing. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the most common reasons people get off track with their health goals, as well as tips on how you can overcome these obstacles and strive to achieve better health.

Nutrition Factors

One of the biggest roadblocks for many individuals when trying to reach personal health goals is nutrition. Eating unhealthy foods such as fast food, processed snacks, and sugary drinks can lead to weight gain, disease susceptibility and have a negative effect on overall quality of life. To combat poor nutrition habits, it is important to focus on eating whole, nutrient dense foods and avoiding processed foods as much as possible. Additionally, creating meal plans for the week can help make sure you are getting the proper nutrition each day.

Exercise Factors

Along with proper nutrition, regular exercise is essential when trying to stay healthy. Many people struggle to get enough physical activity due to lack of motivation or time constraints. To overcome these challenges and successfully stick with an exercise regimen, it’s important to find activities that suit your individual preferences, such as walking or swimming instead of running if you don’t like running. Setting realistic goals and tracking progress also helps keep motivation high throughout a fitness journey.

Time Constraints

Time constraints are a major hurdle for many people who want to pursue better health. With busy lifestyles and hectic schedules, it can be hard to find the time to eat healthy meals or get enough exercise. To make sure you’re still able to meet your health goals, try incorporating small changes into your routine such as taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator, eating a nutritious breakfast each morning or squeezing in quick 5-minute workouts throughout the day.


Life can throw plenty of curveballs that can interfere with health goals. From kids and family responsibilities to long days at work or frequent travel, it is easy to fall off track when life gets too busy. The key to sticking with health goals in these scenarios is to remain flexible and focus on finding the balance between prioritizing your wellbeing and juggling other responsibilities.

General Tips

To avoid getting off track with your health goals, it is important to stay focused and motivated. Here are some general tips that can help you achieve better health: find an accountability partner or a workout buddy, set realistic and achievable goals, reward yourself for milestones reached, track progress regularly and don’t be afraid to ask for help when needed.

Reaching personal health goals can be difficult but not impossible. By understanding what obstacles might come up along the way and following simple tips, you can create sustainable lifestyle changes that will help you reach your goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Get Your Protein!

If you follow me on this blog, podcast or socials, chances are you have heard me talk about the importance of consuming enough protein in each meal. Having a thyroid gland plays an important role in the body’s metabolism and regulating hormones. But if you don’t have a thyroid, protein is even more critical because it helps your body to function properly. Eating enough of the right kinds of proteins can help you maintain muscle mass and strength, as well as healthy bones and heart. It can also prevent fatigue, weakness, and other symptoms that can arise from not having enough protein in your diet. In this article, we will discuss the importance of consuming protein when you do not have a thyroid gland and provide general tips on how to ensure you get enough each day.

Not All Proteins Are Created Equal

The first step in understanding how much protein you should be consuming is to recognize that not all proteins are equal. Different types of protein can provide different benefits and nutrition, so it’s important to select the best sources for your body. Animal-based proteins like meat, eggs, dairy products, fish, and poultry contain all the essential amino acids your body needs in order to function properly and should form the foundation of your daily diet if you don’t have a thyroid gland. Plant-based proteins such as beans, nuts, seeds, and legumes can also supply certain essential amino acids but may lack some of the others found in animal proteins so it’s important to choose foods from both categories when planning meals.

Symptoms of Not Consuming Enough Protein

There are a variety of symptoms that can arise if you’re not getting enough protein in your diet. Some of the most common ones include fatigue, muscle weakness, impaired wound healing, and slowed growth. If you’re experiencing any of these signs or other health problems, it’s important to consult with your health practitioner to determine if an increase in protein consumption is necessary.

How Much Protein Is Necessary If You Don’t Have a Thyroid Gland

Generally speaking, it’s recommended that individuals without a thyroid gland should aim to consume at least 0.8-1g of protein per kilogram (2.2lbs) of body weight each day. For example, someone who weighs 70kg (154lbs) should aim for 56-70g of protein every day. It’s also important to note that this amount can vary depending on individual factors, such as gender, age, activity level, and medical conditions.

Consuming the right types of proteins can be a challenge if you don’t have a thyroid gland. To ensure you get enough each day, try to plan out your meals ahead of time and make sure they include animal-based proteins like meat or fish and plant-based proteins like legumes or nuts. You may also want to consider supplementing with protein powders or bars if needed.

It’s important to be aware of how the lack of protein can further affect your body if you don’t have a thyroid gland. By consuming the right types of proteins and making sure you get enough each day – and more importantly, in each meal –, for individuals who do not have a thyroid gland. Eating enough of the right types of proteins can help maintain muscle mass, strength, healthy bones, and heart health as well as prevent fatigue and other symptoms from arising.

A Real Talk About YOUR Health

Okay, let’s have a real, heart to heart talk this week. I spoke with someone the other day that had been seeking out help for her symptoms:

  • Anxiety: One of the big ones was anxiety,
  • Mental Health: Depression was another major symptom.
  • Gut Health: She has horrible, horrible gut health.
  • Pain And Fatigue: She’s tired, has aches and pains and swollen joints.
  • Inability to Lose Weight. She can’t lose weight no matter what she does.

As we talked on the phone. I gave her hope. She was excited, and then she got a migraine which stopped her in her tracks for a while and she couldn’t really move forward with my 1:1 program. So, I instead offered her my All-Year Resolution Support for $47 a month, which is an amazing program, however, if you want to take your nutrition and health to the next level and do a really deep dive onto the one-on-one work we do, that’s not where you’re gonna get it. I’m talking about testing, vitamin and mineral assessment, etc., which will help explain why you feel the way you do.

The Client’s Frustration

While I did offer her my $47/mo. program – mainly due to her hesitancy in having to see yet another practitioner – as she had seen many different practitioners for many different reasons. Over the course of 15 years, she had seen over eight different practitioners and yet to this day, she still feels like absolute garbage. She ultimately decided to sign up to my 1:1 program with me.

Here Comes the Anger

So, we worked on our first deep dive, our one-on-one to look into testing and to look into what is really going on at the root of her problems.

As part of my 1:1 program, I have a very extensive questionnaire that a client will have to go through and then we discuss all answers. After discussing them in detail, I ask more questions. I get super nosy. I dig deep! Remember when I initially said that one of her major symptoms was anxiety and poor gut health? As I write this, it just really angers me. I learned that her daily routine – you know, how people have a cup of coffee every morning? – well, she was having a cup of MiraLax every morning for the last, I don’t even know how many years. I immediately raised the red flag, mind blown that no one in all of this time has ever said to her:

“Hmm, you’ve taken MiraLax for this long and you have anxiety, and you have really poor, shitty gut health, no pun intended…”

If you struggle to be regular, there’s other things you can do than to take polyethylene glycol in a powder form every single day of your life! What are these practitioners thinking? How did it take me, the eighth practitioner to work with this person to have the light bulb go on and say:

“That’s not it! That’s not what you need to do! We’re gonna do something different, and I can help you.”

If that sounds like you, and if you’re frustrated and annoyed and just frankly pissed off with the way you’ve been treated by other practitioners with your health, sign up for a Free Call, join my Health Reset Membership, my All-Year Resolution Membership, or join me 1:1.

I can help you; I promise!

Doing All The Right Things But Still Feeling Fatigued?

Women’s hormones play a crucial role in overall health and wellness. Knowing your hormone levels and getting them optimized can have significant benefits for everything from energy, mood, and weight to sleep, fertility, and libido. In this post, we’ll discuss why it’s important to know your hormone levels, what happens when your female hormones are off balance, and what happens when you get them optimized. Let’s dive in!

Doing All the Right Things but Still Feeling Off?

Do you still feel tired? Are you not losing the weight? Are you not even losing inches? If this sounds like you, it sounds like you’re in the same situation as a lot of people that I’m working with right now. They too are not feeling very energetic right now. So, what you probably haven’t done is that you haven’t optimized your hormones.

Why You Should Know Your Hormone Levels

Regularly monitoring your hormone levels is an important part of maintaining good physical and mental health. As women age, hormonal imbalances can become more common due to lifestyle factors such as stress or diet that can cause shifts in estrogen and progesterone levels. Regular hormone testing can help you identify if these imbalances are present and provide the opportunity to take preventative steps before any issues worsen.

What Happens When Your Female Hormones Are Off-Balance

When female hormones such as estrogen and progesterone become unbalanced, many physical and emotional symptoms may arise. Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include mood swings, irregular or heavy periods, acne, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, fatigue, headaches or migraines, low libido, night sweats, anxiety and depression. If left untreated these symptoms can get worse over time and lead to more serious health problems down the road.

What Happens When Your Hormones Are Optimized

Balancing your hormones can have a positive impact on many different aspects of your health. When hormone levels are optimized, you may experience improved energy, better mood and sleep, regular menstrual cycles, less acne or skin issues, weight loss or easier weight management, heightened libido, and reduced anxiety and depression. Additionally, balanced hormones can help with fertility and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain cancers.

Ultimately knowing your hormone levels is essential for supporting healthy functioning both now and in the future. If you’re interested in finding out more about how to get optimized contact me in the bio for personalized advice!

Does Going To The Doctor Make You Anxious?

Navigating through medical appointments and tests can be a daunting task and dealing with anxiety is an added burden. Anxiety about doctor visits and upcoming scans or blood work can range from mild to severe, making it difficult for individuals to go through with their scheduled appointments. However, there are certain steps that one can take in order to better manage the anxious feelings associated with these visits. In this post, we will discuss a few tips to help you cope with your anxiety when going to doctor appointments, scans or blood work.

Understanding What It All Means:

Understand what your blood work means and how that compares to how you are feeling. For example, if you have a tumor marker that’s being monitored on a regular basis, then you need to know what that tumor marker is, what it means, and then how it relates to other conditions. Conditions that result in some of the symptoms you may be feeling. So basically having the knowledge helps you feel more in control and that you can talk with your healthcare provider about it in a lot better.

Just Do It:

Step forward and take control of your health, and I guarantee that once you get through it, you’re going to feel so much better. Have a friend or family member come with you to the appointment if possible, as this can help reduce stress levels. Even if they are not physically there with you, just having someone to talk to before and after can be very helpful in managing anxiety.

General Tips:

  • Be Mindful of Your Anxiety: Observe the anxious thoughts and feelings without judgment. Practice mindfulness by being aware of your body’s reactions and sensations as a way to be present in the moment. Focus on your breath as a way to ground yourself, and practice calming affirmations such as “I am safe” or “This too shall pass”.
  • Rely On Support: Find someone who can provide emotional support before, during, and after the appointment or test. Whether it is a friend, family member, mental health provider or spiritual leader; relying on a support system can make all the difference in managing your anxiety.
  • Prepare: Research beforehand what the appointment or test entails so that you have realistic expectations of what’s going on. Gather all relevant information ahead of time such as lab results, any necessary medication, and any other information your doctor might need. This will help to ensure that you are well-prepared for the appointment.
  • Create Healthy Coping Strategies: Focus on using healthy coping strategies such as exercising, mindfulness meditation, journaling, or connecting with nature to help manage anxious thoughts and feelings. These activities can help to bring you into the present moment and distract you from worrying about what might happen in the future.

Dealing with anxiety around doctor appointments, scans or blood work is challenging but not impossible. By understanding what these tests/appointments mean and relying on a strong support system, an individual can better cope with their anxiety surrounding these events. Additionally, by preparing ahead of time and focusing on healthy coping strategies one can better manage their anxiety and better prepare for the appointment.

Taking control of your health is essential to living a balanced life; so, take charge and get through this!
