The ugly ‘I’ word is what comes to mind when I look back on this previous six weeks of competition prep. I hate having insecurities as much as anyone does, but in an industry where your body is the main topic of conversation, it’s inevitable.
Moms have so much on their plates. When you’re juggling tasks like working, carpooling, cleaning, and cooking for the family, it can seem impossible to exercise regularly.
I know you’ve heard it 100 times, and I’ve probably said it an equal amount, but abs really are made in the kitchen. Trying to out-train a bad diet will get you nowhere
People tend to think that fitness is muscles over mind, over matter. But the reality is, your body can handle nearly anything; it’s your mind you have to convince.
Unfortunately, doughnuts and fitness do not go hand in hand. I have yet to meet a personal trainer who puts a Krispy Kreme on a meal plan. But alas, not all is lost if you are trying to lose weight, working on your summer body, or just trying to cut down on sweets.
Sculpted shoulders are sexy, and having a toned, sculpted back looks amazing in tanks and swim suits. Being that it's winter, now is a great time to start putting in work for the upcoming summer months. Try this shoulder & back workouts.
Here’s a startling fact to take in. Only 36% of children receive the daily recommended amount of physical activity. And did you know that sadness and depression have been shown to go hand-in-hand with poor posture? Is there a specific formula that is best for shedding unwanted pounds? Can women really bulk up without trying? Answers to these hot topic fitness questions, and more, all in one place.
So you’ve decided to put your fitness front and center this year, or at least, you feel coerced into doing so after seeing Target stock it’s entire women’s department with swim suits. It’s only March! Can’t we get through Easter candy season first? So now comes the hard part, actually following through. For those who are new to the gym-scene, your first days, weeks…even month, can be totally overwhelming. This is where a personal trainer comes in.
Changing your lifestyle can be really hard. Scratch that. It IS really hard. And it requires a lot of hard work and discipline. This is probably the worst week for me to write this, seeing as how I have blown past my macro goals EVERY single day this week, but hey, maybe this makes me a little more relatable because I am right there struggling with you.
Cramming in time to work out as a mommy is tough, I get it. No really, I do. I have a career, I am a sometimes single mom (former full-time single mom); I am the chauffer, maid, nanny, chef, errand-runner, laundry doer, and constant go-to for my five-year-old’s entertainment purposes. If I was a betting woman, I would say this likely sounds very familiar to most of you. So when is there time to work out? How can you fit it into your already busy life? And how do you not feel guilty for taking time to yourself?
