10 Ways to Boost Your Mental Health Today

Well hello there! Long time no talk! As many of you know, I took a little blogging hiatus to create a Workout and Nutrition Guide for busy #bossbabe women. That's right, this plan will wipe away your excuses. Don't have time? Each workout is 45 minutes or less! Don't have the money for a gym? You can do all these workouts at home! Don't know what foods to eat and when to eat? I've laid it all out for you! Don't like structured meal plans with zero flexibility? You're preaching to the choir, sista! If you couldn't tell, I am really excited about my ebook progress. But, you guys, I miss blogging! There's nothing like connecting with all of you

I Think We Should Take a Break

Every time your heart beats, it takes the same amount of time to pause. There is an ebb and flow to life - ups and downs, periods of stress and periods of rest. There is also a time and place to continue doing exactly what you've been doing. It can also become very clear when it's time for a change. I've decided it's time for a change. I want to take Life in Spandex one step further. I started this blog knowing I wanted to show women everywhere that fitness doesn't have to be an all or nothing.

Foam Rolling Routine

Are You Skipping This Important Part of Your Workout?

Hands up if you feel like your muscles get super tight in winter? Mine are raised oh so high. My body definitely prefers warmer weather (cue all the non-Californian readers rolling their eyes haha). It's really important to combat muscle stiffness caused by weather, intense training, and sedentary jobs to reduce your risk of injury. I came across an awesome foam rolling routine a couple weeks ago and asked the author, Cole, if I could share it! He agreed and was so excited he offered to write a post to go along with it for my readers. Without further ado, enjoy! Hello Life in Spandex readers! My name is Cole Matthews, I’m a fitness trainer from Southern California and I'm excited to talk

Weight Loss Hype vs Help

Tea cleanses, miracle pills, shakes, oh my! The media is swarming with advertisements imposing on anyone with weight loss New Year's resolutions. In all honesty, I don't blame someone who falls for one of these gimmicks. From taking a number of weight loss pills to talking my parents into buying me at-home Ab Crunch machines, I'm guilty of it myself! These companies play a good game. For someone who already feels stressed out about weight gain, the exclamation points, titles in cool fonts, before and after photos, and celebrity endorsements, create an even more demanding sense of urgency to slim down. Whether you've never tried to lose weight or have tried everything in the books, dropping lbs can be frustrating

The Best of Life in Spandex 2016

The Best of Life in Spandex 2016!

2016 in a one word description would be something like... changing. Maybe it's a part of being twenty-something, but I feel like I've seen some of the biggest changes in my life during the past couple of years. During 2016, I acquired my Precision Nutrition Certification, went through a major personal life change, and was awarded a promotion at my work that combines my passion for fitness with my knack for marketing. These pivotal moments of 2016 not only changed my life circumstance, they helped me grow as an individual. Change can be scary for a lot of people. For me, it's freeing. It's freeing to know that no matter what the circumstance, it can change. And not only can
