It’s been a whirlwind of travel these last couple of weeks. I left Mexico three weeks ago, where I had been for the past 4 months, flew to Colorado, then to North Carolina, and then to Connecticut, and now I’m back in paradise - in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica - where I’ll be for at least the next month. I am so happy to be back on the beach for the most delicious fresh, local seafood, papayas, and coconut water! And, of course, for the most gorgeous sunsets!
I wanted to share a few of the books I’ve recently been reading, since it’s been a while! I try to post interesting tid-bits and screenshots from my reads on Instagram stories, and so many of you always want to know what I’m reading, so here you go!
My reads have recently been a mix of nutrition, fitness, finance, and business. I’ve also been adding in some fiction and “fun” books to read before bed to help turn my brain off. Feel free to send over anything interesting, educational, or inspiring you’ve recently read.
(me, getting the additional benefit of sunlight in my eyes and on as much of my body as possible, 😜 while also reading in the morning.)
I loved this book, it was a very easy read, but it was also a great breakdown of the science as to exactly why most people don’t understand calories, why they really don’t matter, and why they actually do.
I now incorporate a protein shake (protein powder and water) immediately after my weight training workouts.
This book took me about two days to read - I couldn’t put it down. It’s not only a book with so much great, tangible information on getting leaner, but it’s also a heartwarming story about the benefits and lessons of failing. This was a great addition to the book above, since both authors talked about the thermic effect of foods along with the importance of when and what you eat.
My coffee consumption has dramatically increased (LOL).
I read this book a few years ago, but I’m currently re-reading it and actually implementing the steps he lays out in this book, instead of just putting it down and moving on. I love that nothing in here is “sexy,” but it’s simple and it works, just like sustainable weight loss and health - no sexy get rich/fit schemes here.
After I read this book the first time, I automized everything in my financial life (ie. automatic weekly transfers into my savings account, which helped me save money for the first time in my life). Now, I’m working on opening up a 401-K, since I’ve always worked for myself - and WHY DON’T THEY TEACH YOU THIS IN SCHOOL?!?
Loved this book for confirming a lot of the things I’m doing in my business intuitively, as well as giving me some ideas to continue to grow and scale!
The truth is I’m very much over-subscribed in my 1:1 private coaching. I always thought I would be able to fit in anyone who wanted to work with me, but as my business grows, it’s really important for me to create boundaries and only take on as many clients as I can comfortably handle, in order to give my clients the best service I possibly can! After reading this book, I actually limited the number of private clients I take on per month even more, which meant turning away a significant number of clients and also a significant amount of money. This has actually created more space in my business to create and grow, which will means not only more money in the long run, but also happier clients and an even better service from me.
As much as I love reading and learning, I love using that information even more to improve the lives of my clients. While I'm usually on a 4-8 week waitlist for private coaching (you can book a call with me here), I also have self-guided courses that are always available here and are a compilation of everything I know in tangible steps that I know actually and truly work!
I hope this was helpful. Leave a comment here or send me a message on Instagram and let me know if you have any questions!
