Love Your Body Barre Workout

Is it just me or does it seem like no one is really impartial to Valentine’s Day. People either seem to love it or hate it. Whether I’m single or in a relationship, I love any excuse to buy/receive flowers and eat chocolate. So count me in as a lover, not a hater! Ever since this blogging thang, I like to use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to celebrate loving myself, and to help you do the same! Last year, the Love Your Body Challenge was a huge hit. Thank you to everyone who participated last year. The feedback I got from this seven-day body confidence challenge is still fresh in my mind. You guys make it so easy for Read More

weight loss hype vs help


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 Read More

Bounce Back Fat Burning HIIT Workout


Bounce Back Fat Blasting Workout

Feeling a little bit… fluffy? I’ll be the first to admit that I enjoyed the holidays thoroughly, indulging way more than I normally do. I don’t stress about a little bloating, water weight, or extra “fluff” because I created timeless memories. Plus, I know how to help my body bounce back quickly! During the last couple weeks of December I let myself enjoy holiday desserts, champagne, refined carbohydrates full of gluten and cheese, and sometimes sleep in instead of working out. But I’m over it! I started to feel a change in my energy levels, my skin broke out, my productivity dwindled, and my pants felt a little tight. I knew it was time to get back to my normal clean diet, sleep patterns, and workouts. Read More

The What, When, and How's of Cardio


The What, When, & How’s of Cardio

There’s a “c-word” in fitness, and no it’s not the one you’re thinking of! Get your minds out of the gutter. The word I’m talking about is… cardio! I LOVE cardio. Running, sprinting, biking, dancing, stair climbing, you name it. I live for the adrenaline I get from pushing myself to run faster, bike harder, or dance bigger. However, for many of you, cardio is like the opposite sex. You can’t live with it or without it. You know it’s good for you and helps you burn fat but you just dread it. This love-hate relationship is totally normal. Cardio can be extremely boring and time consuming… if you’re doing it wrong! Today is the day your cardio gets a makeover. Read More




Calorie Blasting Upper Body Sculpting Superset Workout

Before I jump into sharing an awesome new workout for you guys, I have to give a shoutout to my amazing boyfriend, R, for winning a major amateur golf tournament this weekend! A big congratulations is due to the 2015 NCGA Strokeplay Champion. I am so proud to see all of his hard work pay off after a three-year winless drought.
