February 18, 2014 10:31 pm Published by 6 Comments

Have you ever seen #eatcleantraindirty and wondered what the heck that person was talking about? Today I’m gonna explain the “Eat Clean” part, because I’ve had a lot of questions about what I eat/what kind of diet I follow. Truth is…I don’t do any special diet. I’m not a vegetarian. Or vegan. I don’t eat paleo. I’m not about “low fat” or no carbs (which you know how I feel about carbs). I don’t eat exclusively gluten-free. I’m not saying... View Article

Green Smoothie Goodness…because are there really ever too many green smoothie recipes?

The answer to that question? No. No there are not! I am a smoothie junkie for sure. They are so easy to make, good for on the go, plus if you make them correctly, they are packed with nutrients. I am a huge fan of green smoothies. I’m always experimenting with my green smoothie recipes so that I don’t get bored drinking them.

A Pump You Up Workout Playlist

February 10, 2014 12:01 am Published by 5 Comments

Happy Mix It Up Monday, y’all! I had a request asking for me to share some of the music that I listen to when I workout. Why didn’t I think to share that?! Music is SO important to me during a workout. I don’t think I could make it through a workout without the right playlist pumping me up. I like to change up my playlists pretty much everyday when it comes to working out. New songs push me and... View Article
