All or Nothing April…well alright!

March 31, 2014 12:05 am Published by Leave your thoughts

I can’t believe that tomorrow is APRIL! Do you know what April is? MY FREAKING WEDDING MONTH, that’s what. I am so beyond excited to marry my best friend, but there are so many little details that I still need to tackle. I foresee lots of wedding craziness in my future (; I figured I’d give y’all a look at the April calendar a day early so you can get ready to take on the daily challenges with me! If... View Article

5-Minute Pre-Shower Workout

March 28, 2014 5:45 pm Published by 4 Comments

HAPPY FIT FRIDAY (: I hope y’all had a fabulous week! What better way to kick off the weekend than with a new workout?! I have a lot of people tell me that they don’t have “time” to workout. First of all…I think that’s BS. Working out is just as important as showering or brushing your teeth. It’s part of keeping up with yourself and tasking care of your needs. BUT I do understand that some days it is harder... View Article

The Skinny on Healthy Fats and Why Not All Fat is Bad

March 25, 2014 10:18 am Published by 3 Comments

I have something to tell y’all. Not all fat is created equal. The whole “fat free craze” from the 90s needs to be put to rest already. We actually NEED fat. Certain types of fat, anyway. Have you heard the term “healthy fat” before? That’s another one of those terms that people throw around/hear but they don’t really know what it is. If you’ve never heard of it, you might be under the impression that all fat is bad and... View Article

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

Happy FIT FRIDAY (: Sorry that I missed last week…my bridal shower was last weekend so I was a bit tied up! It was a blast by the way! My Matron of Honor is fabulous and threw me the best party. I can’t believe the wedding is in 28 days…WHAT?! Let’s not talk about the length of my to-do list okay? Anyway…I post workout challenges on Instagram 4-5 days per week. I usually try to ask of suggestions so that... View Article

Why You’re Doing It Wrong If You Skip Warming Up/Cooling Down

March 18, 2014 12:01 am Published by 1 Comment

I understand that people want to get their workouts done in as little amount of time as possible. We’re busy…I get it, believe me. 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
