The macro lifestyle has natural ebbs and flows as our lives have ups and downs. There are times when we have the time and dedication to give it 100%, nail those green days 7/7 and be all in on macros. Then there are those times when life needs us to loosen the reins a bit and we aren’t able to keep that level of intensity.
Family members get sick. Children have tough seasons and need extra attention and resources. Work gets busy. Travel. Vacation. Holidays. You name it, we can come up with something to put in the blank that challenges our commitment to balanced nutrition.
“I’m a cancer survivor. Can you help me with my nutrition?”
This question shows up in our inbox every so often. The answer is YES. Today, we want to share with you a client spotlight story that will speak so much louder than our own words.
Meet Stay Fit Mom Ninja, Sonia. She’s 53 years old and a breast cancer survivor that is currently working with Coach Laura.
Happy Thanksmas! Thanksgiving is fast approaching and pictures of Christmas trees are already showing up on social media. I love this time of year! Family get togethers, parties, cozy fires, turkeys, pies, and all the sides! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It can also be the most challenging time of the year when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Who doesn’t love mac & cheese? I have a lot of mac & cheese recipes, but this is the first classic, or traditional, mac & cheese. I figure right before the holidays is a great time to share this one. And also, you all confirmed with me not too long ago that there are never enough mac & cheese recipes.
If you need a veggie side dish for the holidays, I highly recommend this Cauliflower Au Gratin. This is a beautiful dish, sure to wow your family and guests. Tracy told me this is one of her favorites to make!
Should I track my macros when I’m sick? Will this antibiotic wreck my fat loss plan? I’m grieving and don’t know how to move forward. What do you recommend?
These are all questions our clients have approached us with over the years and we want to share our answers with you. Today’s culture is BUSY. Our schedules are full and our to-do lists are never ending. If you are a productivity queen, a “set back” for sickness of any kind can feel frustrating. Getting sick is never convenient, however sometimes it’s our body’s way of demanding rest and we suggest you adhere to your body’s not so subtle request. Below are our top tips for evaluating your nutrition while sick or grieving.
Are you coming off a fun and wild season and ready to become more structured with your nutrition goals?
We’re here to help you re-establish your rhythm. Many of us suffer from an “All or Nothing” mentality. And while that can be beneficial (when you’re in the ‘all’ phase, it’s also detrimental when you’re in the ‘nothing’ phase), especially when it comes to your nutrition! You have to be in a place to accept failure in order to move forward. If you have a lot of anxiety thinking about getting back to it, because you know you won’t be as good as you were before, these tips are for you!
Meet SFM Client Spotlight Diane! This client spotlight is a special one.

How quickly I remember how much I dislike the cold. It’s windy and cold here in the desert and I’m craving some warm soup. This Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup would be perfect on a day like today. Serve it with a grilled cheese and you’ve got yourself an amazing meal. The macros aren’t bad either!
Let’s discuss how to hang on to see the results that are around the next corner.
