Did you know that heart disease is the number 1 killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer? 1 in 4 women will die from heart disease – those are scary but true statistics.
On September 6th, my family and I will be walking in memory of my friend Katelyn’s dad who suddenly died from a heart attack in January 2012. I have loved ones who suffer from… Continue

People ask me all the time about my diet, especially lately, since losing 47 pounds (and counting) less than 6 months postpartum. But I’m not on some crazy strict cut back, cut out diet, so I never really know how to answer other than responding with, “I eat really healthy.”
In my early and mid 20′s, I put myself on more diets than I care to admit.… Continue

Often, I have been asked how do I manage to sustain my energy all day and look fresh and vibrant at the same time? Today I decided to answer… Continue

Before pregnancy, I was a planking machine. Point blank, I loved to plank. I did them almost daily, and my old personal trainer taught me to be a pro at TRX planks – those my friends, are NO joke! From straight arm ab planks to elbow planks to side planks to planks on a workout ball, I did it all, and I often challenged myself to see just how long I could hold them. One minute. Two minutes. Three minutes… These “simple” but difficult exercises are…

I have always been active and somewhat healthy, but this last year I let my health and fitness take a back seat to life (aka...excuses). Now, I am in control again and have the desire to push myself and grow (muscles that is). I am going to document my fitness journey, diet, and progress to hold myself accountable, inspire, & hope to get some other up & moving.
1) set a positive example for family
2) eat clean
3 ) become strong--lift--3-4 x… Continue

Mamas, I buddied up with co-founder of Grass Roots Fitness, Joann Meginley, to put together a short video of five exercises you can do to tackle those postpartum problem areas. And if it wasn't for our professional videographer, Pauline Lancaster, you would probably just be viewing the trees in this video. I hope you enjoy a great mini workout, or at least laugh at me while I do… Continue

If you follow me on Twitter you know I share a range of things I don't constantly write about here.
Those 140 characters are an amazing way to stay short, sweet and focused.
I am always looking for ways to challenge myself, test my fearlessness and learn something new about myself and the world I live in, in general.
I don't want to label myself as all things stress free and not practice it more often than not.
I am always looking for fun… Continue

So often lately I have been hearing so many women say what they hate about their bodies, or that they are getting discouraged with their weight loss efforts because their bodies aren't doing what THEY want it to do. In my fitness group, so many of these ladies are getting so discouraged because their weight isn't pouring off them or they aren't getting stick thin. It really makes me sad! I am trying to help them focus on getting healthy, not… Continue

Summer break is almost here, and that means so many kids and teens will lose the structure of daily lessons and physical activity. Research shows that children gain weight twice as fast in summer compared to the school year. When school ends, they are also at risk of falling behind academically! It’s critical for children to maintain learning and exercise throughout the summer. Continue
