Abs & Arms Home Workout

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

5 Facts That Will Make You Want to Exercise

Aesthetic goals are fun. It's encouraging to see our bodies change when we're working so hard to build muscle and lose body fat. However, sometimes these goals come a lot slower than we like. This can be very discouraging, especially if you set out on your fitness journey with the idea of making visible changes. Giirrllll, this is no reason to give up! We NEED to exercise for our general health. Put flat abs and a perky booty in the back of your mind. Let’s discuss the physical changes from exercise you can't see and the damaging effects that can happen if you don't get your body moving. 1. Improve posture and reduce pain.

Avoiding the Girlfriend 15 - comfortable

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Comfortable

A good measure of your relationship status is your ability to talk about bowel movements. Yup, I just went there. Though, come to think of it, I think it took all of two dates for my boyfriend to indulge me with information about his bathroom needs :/ (it's a good thing he's adorable). On the other hand, I've only recently been somewhat comfortable enough to even admit that I needed to do anything but tinkle. When you become comfortable enough in your relationship to admit that you don't poop rose petals and sparkles, it can also translate into other parts of your life. Think about it. We chase after health, success, and wealth to ultimately attract a mate and reproduce. We are biologically

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Committed

The first thought that went through my mind when I woke up one morning as someone new's girlfriend was, holy cr*p. I was thrilled, petrified, and everything in between. I had committed to someone who was more than I could wish for. But I had also been very hurt recently in the past. The first time I was someone's girlfriend was in preschool. But, I'm pretty sure I didn't get asked a formal commitment question. The second time was in the sixth grade. His name was Matt and our friend groups had decided we were the perfect match. I think we may have said ten words to each other over the duration of our "relationship," and over half of them

Avoiding the Girlfriend 15 - Dating

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Dating

I consider myself to be a strong, independent woman. However, there's a very simple way to turn me into a sixteen year old girl in a matter of seconds - a text from a new beau. During the first few months of dating my now boyfriend, my heart rate would speed up every time my phone lit up with a text message. Is it him?! (I have to admit, I tend to get just as giddy seven months into dating whenever I get a text from him.) The first couple months of dating someone is a roller coaster of excitement and utter fear. No one wants to get hurt and everyone wants to be loved. When you're trying to connect and impress with
