On My Healthy Lifestyle Radar

Every January I make a promise with myself to stay out of the gym, and workout at home or by running outside (polar vortex obviously has that on the sideline). I just can’t handle the crowds, fighting for machines, my favorite spin bike or these people. So I pull out my trusty DVDs, or go [&he[...]

I’m In Need of a Detox

This isn’t the first time I’ve contemplated a detox, but lately I’ve just really been feeling like I need it. I’m cranky, sluggish and feeling a little bloated…like all the time. Maybe it is the stress. Maybe it is all the travel. Whatever it is I need a swift kick in t[...]

Can I do a women only gym?

That’s the question I was asking myself as I exited Uplift Studios last Friday. I am not one to be intimidated by the dudes in the weight room, but there was something nice about walking into a gym and studio that didn’t smell like stale sweat. (You know exactly the smell that I am talki[...]

Sweaty is Pretty

*This post is sponsored by Under Armour through FitFluential* Last year when Under Armour Women launched their “What’s Beautiful” campaign I immediately jumped at the chance to sign up. I started knocking off challenges, even taping myself after seriously sweaty work out sessions.¬[...]

Can’t Resist: Spring Runs, Chobani and More

I can’t resist running in this weather. I am literally exhausted with tight quads and an aching back and the mid-60 weather and clear blue skies call to me. I am still getting used to running in my Kinvara 4 from Saucony and because the weather was super perfect I ran a bit longer in […[...]

Exercise As A Threat?

Over the last few years we have acclimated to seeing calories next to our favorite food items. At first it seemed to deter some people, but eventually you just shrugged it off and ate it because you wanted that personal-size Uno pizza that is like a ¬†1,400 calories. (Not me, because I just can̵[...]

An Evening With Jillian

When I think about spending an evening with Jillian Michaels, I immediately think buckets of sweat and a fierce attitude in your face. So I was skeptical when I heard about her “Maximize Your Life” tour. I know she offers motivation in the form of one-on-one talks on Biggest Loser, but t[...]

Sidelined and Other Ramblings

I am the perfect example of how not to take care of yourself. There are studies out there that show that stress depletes your immune system and once your stress dissipates your immune system is flooded and then you get sick. Well that happened to me last week. I was go, go, going and then I [&helli[...]

Progress(ish?)

I’ve been diligently tracking my calorie intake and burn on myfitnesspal. I’m doing it without the heart rate monitor that I am currently lusting after, so it is possible that it isn’t accurate. Anyway, a month of serious workouts with Leslie Ann, calorie tracking and upping my car[...]
