Healthy Snacking Made Easy

  Snacks have become their very own food group.  I believe that snacks are so popular and normal these days because of the dependence that so many people have on carbohydrates due to the overwhelming amount of grains and sugars in the Standard American Diet (SAD).  Simply put, the more starches and sugars you eat, […]

Help The Mom’s In Your Life Live, Love and Laugh Better

I cannot tell you how often I hear things like….I am so tired from chasing my kids around or my kids take so much out of me, or I can’t do (insert healthy thing here) because of my kids… I get it. Motherhood is the most demanding, challenging, and exhausting job on the planet.  And […]

Workout of My Week Vol. #006 – Get Stable

Fitness does not need to be complicated but it does need to challenge you.  That is unless your Heart Rate Variability is telling you that today needs to be a recovery day or a you-can-workout-but-dial-down-your-intensity type of day.  My body is going through some weird stuff lately, I’m detoxing (still), not thrilled with the weather […]

Workout of My Week Vol. #004 – Tabata Time

  It’s Tabata time! This week I completed a pretty tough workout I had to share with you. I wasn’t quite sure I would finish it (considering there were 3 separate Tabata’s in the workout) with gusto as I hadn’t been sleeping too well due to travel and other stuff lately. I was a bit […]
