Better Booty Home Workout

If you haven't heard, big booties are being celebrated! I thank this trend for teaching me to appreciate my curves, not try and hide them. However, like any media-driven message, it tells us that one thing is better than the other. Small butt girls are feeling like they need to "grow a booty" now. Though you can definitely increase the size of your rear through the proper exercises and nutrition, some women just won't have Kardashian, Queen B, or even J-Lo booties. For them to greatly increase their glute-size would take a lot of time, effort, calculating, and even surgery to acquire. Well, media, hear us roar!

Running Shoes & Sports Bras for Your Body Type

*Disclaimer: Brooks Running sent me free gear in exchange for this blog post. However, all opinions and statements are my own. I truly love this brand! There are two, well actually three, things that can make or break your workout - your shoes, your sports bra, and your attitude. If you read this post, you'll be guaranteed at least two out of the three! 😉 When I was younger, I could get away with buying my running shoes and sports bras solely based on their look and price tag (the cheaper the better). However, I've been more prone to injury as I've gotten older, and my girls just won't bare the bouncing of cheapy bras anymore. That's when I found Brooks

Chocolate Banana Nut Protein Pancakes

I admit, I am a breakfast food junkie. Oats and eggs have special places in my heart, but I am absolutely addicted to protein pancakes. I will gladly eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late night sweet treat. They satisfy all my basic needs - 1) easy to prepare 2) filling 3)healthy 4) taste like dessert! What more could a girl ask for? I've outdone myself with this new protein pancake recipe. And I didn't think that could be done after concocting these Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes. I was inspired by Rootz Nutrition Chocolate Banana Nut Protein-Superfood powder. They sent me a couple samples and as soon as I opened the bag, smelled the powder, and tasted the stuff bare, my

Morning Metabolism Boosting Home Workout

If you start a new job, would you insist on using Gmail when you're asked to use Outlook? If you wanted to master a new recipe, would you second guess going to the grocery store to buy a new ingredient? If your dentist told you to brush your teeth more often, would you question his/her expertise? I'm guessing no. So why would you question me when I suggest investing in a couple sets of inexpensive dumbbells?  Every busy #bossbabe on-the-go who wants to reap the benefits of quick, convenient, and effective home-workouts should own a pair! By investing $20, you could save yourself time and stress, not to mention a whole lot of health complications later on. It also makes metabolism boosting morning workouts much

The Best Flat-Tummy Breakfast

My breakfasts needs are pretty simple. Prep-less as I stumble around my kitchen before the sun rises searching through half-opened eyelids for coffee. Portable to bring to work with me, since I eat it after my morning workout. Sweet. I love starting (and ending) my day with something sweet. Filled with fiber and nutrients to keep my full and energized until my next meal. A good combination of protein and healthy carbohydrates to recover post-workout. If you're working your butt off (or on, I should say) at the gym and not seeing results, look very closely at your post-workout meal (or nutrition in general). It must improve my digestion, not wreck havoc on it. When the weather starts to get
