My Clean Eating Grocery List

March 24, 2014 8:09 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Happy Monday (: I’ve had a request for this post for quite awhile now so I decided that it’s time to make it happen! People want to know what I buy at the grocery store. A lot of the time, if you’re new to “eating clean” walking into the grocery store can be overwhelming. You question everything that you’re buying (which you should anyway) and just find yourself confused and hungry….or even worse, hangry…dun, dun, dun. I compiled a massive... View Article

That being said, people usually tend to skip 2 super important parts of their workout: the warm up and the cool down. A lot of people view these as “optional” and don’t really view them as part of the workout. Well I call BS. If you ask me, a workout isn’t complete unless you warm up... View Article

Foam rolling…it hurts so good. Have you ever heard of foam rolling? Have you ever wondered what the heck a foam roller is and how you’re supposed to use one? A lot of people ignore rollers when they see them at the gym because they don’t know how to use them. Foam rolling is amazing, and I don’t want any of you to miss out on any of its benefits just because you don’t know about it. I’m gonna start... View Article

Are you one of those people who lets yourself get so STUCK on that little number at the top of your scale? Do you weigh yourself every morning hoping for a decrease in that pesky number? Well…I’m here to tell y’all something today. That little number does not define you. Actually, it doesn’t exactly define your health & fitness journey either. Alone, that is.
