Q&A Wednesday: Clean Eating on a Teeny Budget

By | May 3rd, 2017|Clean Eating Boot Camp, Q&A Wednesday|4 Comments

Q: Hi, Erika. I'm writing to you today because I am really inspired by your writings on clean eating and am eager to get started, but it's really challenging to get started with such a small budget like mine. In fact, when I think about it, I'm very scared. All these individual pieces seem so expensive for such small things!

Q&A Wednesday: My Knees Hurt When I Work Out!

By | January 18th, 2017|Exercise 101, Q&A Wednesday|1 Comment

Q: Hello Erika, How are you? I respect you for giving out the information that you have for us women. I just had a few questions for you. Every year I say I am going to eat right and lose weight and I don't. I have gained so much weight through the years that now every time I do get on the treadmill my knees hurt. They hurt so bad that when I lay down at night they throb inside. I know it has to do with the excess weight I have gained in my legs and around my knees. What kind of exercise do you suggest for this and did you go through this also?
