Staying Healthy Through Heartbreak


Staying Healthy Through Heartbreak

It was early on a Thursday morning when the words, “I think we should break up” were spoken.

After 5 years of relationship and 2 years living together, our time as a couple ended in a matter of minutes. During the following four weeks I went through a roller coaster of emotions. The whirlwind of losing a partner is not an easy thing to go through, even if it is for the better. For the first few weeks, every moment was a fight to feel normal. So what did I do? Read More

My All-Natural Waist Trimmer Is Not What You Think!

The thing most women desire? A small waist. However, we also crave wine nights with girlfriends, indulging in a dark chocolate bar while watching Netflix, sleeping in instead of going to the gym, and sometimes eating a gosh darn slice of pizza.

5 Days to a Flatter Stomach

If you’ve been following my blog you know I’m a big proponent of body acceptance, awareness, and self-love. However, if you are in the gym and eating well to feel your best, you probably want to see a change in your appearance as well. I know I do! And this doesn’t mean you have poor body image. It’s natural for us to want to feel fit, strong, and fabulous! What I don’t believe in is depriving yourself of foods you enjoy eating or spending hours on the treadmill, in the gym, or in group exercise classes to try and achieve an idealized image of beauty that may not be realistic for your body type. A balanced diet full of nutrient-dense Read More

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!
