Lazy Girl Ab Workout

You know those days you don't want to put on pants or leave the house? Yeah, that's me today. I've been feeling run down this past week no matter what I eat or how much I sleep. Maybe I'm fighting a bug? During these times I do take it easy by relaxing from strenuous exercise, eating nutrient-dense foods, and sleeping as much as I can. But, there is a huge difference between needing rest and just being lazy. When it's a matter of will, ditch the excuses. I've created a killer ab workout that doesn't even require getting out of the house or even off the floor! All I need is 15 minutes to make your abs burn and burn

I pride myself on being able to show even the busiest women how to make healthy living fit into their lifestyle. I love educating them on the actual amount of exercise and easy nutrition hacks necessary to get results. Being fit takes so much less time, money, and effort than everyone thinks! It's extremely gratifying to see a woman's look of dismay when I tell her that 30 to 45-minutes of exercise (away from the treadmill) is plenty to get visible results and reap health benefits of physical activity. What's even better is her reaction when I tell her she can still have a soothing glass of wine and decadent dark chocolate. Hearing that she has more energy, confidence, is

Finding My Center (In Two Ways)

It seems like the older I get, the more I feel I don't know. As most of you are aware, I've battled knee injuries since May. A self-proclaimed fitness influencer, I've questioned my expertise during recovery. It's been 7 months since I've been able to run, squat, lunge, or jump. If you haven't noticed, these exercises made up the bulk of my workouts. The physical pain has been limited, but the emotional turmoil has been strong. I know this issue is insignificant compared to what so many people are suffering through. But I've felt a loss of identity and a rush of anxiety because of it. I've been "that fit girl" for so long that I feel like I'm not

Toned Abs Do-Anywhere Workout

No matter what the latest fitness trend - big buts, round shoulders, small waist. There's one thing that will always be in style - a strong core. So much of the fitness industry relies on the aesthetic benefits of regular exercise. Scroll through Instagram and you'll see a plethora of toned women with minimal body fat and well endowed chest and booty. These images aren't only toxic for our own body-image (if we don't look like that), they can be completely un-motivating. There may have even been times you completely gave up on exercising and eating well because you thought, "What's the point? I'll never look like that!" Let me tell you, the point is to live a long, mobile

Summer Shape Up Series: Burned to the Core Workout

It's the third #WorkoutWednesday of the Summer Shape Up Series! Time is seriously flying! Nothing screams summer like a chiseled tummy. Unfortunately for all of us hopefuls, it's impossible to spot reduce. This means you can do sit ups and planks until the cows come home. But, if your nutrition isn't on point, you'll have nothing to show for it. It's a sucky reality a lot of us have to come to terms with. However, attaining a defined core shouldn't be done through diet alone. We want muscles to be there once the layer on top starts to flatten! Plus, you can literally look pounds thinner by practicing good posture. And, there is no way to have a sexy stance
