Just Like That It’s 2015

post image

Oh my goodness it’s 2015!

I still can’t believe it. It seems as the older I get, the quicker the time passes. I remember as a child, the days were long and years seemed longer. I would look at 30, 40, 50, 60+ year olds as OLD, and now look at me! My child self is in awe of what I’ve become today.

With age comes a ton of wisdom. I don’t take every living moment for granted anymore. And while I absolutely hate resolutions .... (I’ll tell you why in just a moment)....I promised myself that this is the year I cherish as many living, breathing moments I can.

Holiday Tips & Tricks that SUCK! + Fit Fem Holiday Training Special

post image

Hiya! If you know anything about me, you know I’m the kind of gal who really says it like it is. I pride myself on sticking out from the normal fitness/weight loss crowd. How so?

Well, I’m ANTI

cutting calories
weighing yourself on the scale…every day
putting you down for splurging at events, especially around the holidays
telling you how to navigate the holidays so you can “survive” holiday bulge
…you get the picture.

This post is about weight loss/weight gain over the holidays. I feel the need to set things straight.

Eat Whatever The Hell You Want On Thanksgiving + Pre-holiday Fit Fem SALE!

Next week. Next week it begins. (dum dum dum) The season of holiday munching, boozing, and caring a lot about what it does to your waistline but not enough that you wait until the new year to work on your “weightloss” resolution.  (or dumb dumb dumb?)

Let me ask you a question. Did your inbox start filling up with emails about the holidays yet? You know the ones that say you can lose weight and burn fat even during the holidays? I certainly. Been getting them for years.

Vinnie Tortorich in the House Again!

post image

That’s right! My good friend Vinnie Tortorich and I hung out again. Not sure if you recall but a few months ago I was introduced to Vinnie. He is a celeb trainer, model, author, leader of the NSNG movement, and host of “America’s Angriest Trainer” podcast. We discussed his new book Fitness Confidential, which is an AWESOME read by the way! (Will post all of his links below). Anyhow, if you’ve got an extra 50 minutes to spare which I’m sure you do, watch the interview [if you are at work, pssstttt I didn’t tell you to do anything ok?].

Love Your Body Type - New Program!

post image

I’ve had some major insights this week, mainly revolving body image and confidence.  For the longest time, I tried to look like someone I’m not.  And I bet I’m not the only one who tried either.  Naturally I did some research on why this is and here are some facts and startling statistics.

First, what is body image anyway? Body image is someone’s perception of what his/her body looks like and it’s an assumption of other people’s perceptions as well. Friends, families, societal pressures and pictures expressed in the media influence this image perception.

I dare you!

post image

I remember the beginnings of my fitness career. I played the dangerous comparison game. I would admire my colleagues and fitness friends’ bodies and secretly wished I looked like them. When I would teach my group fitness classes, I would look at my self in that classroom mirror and feel horrified in the body I was in. I would attend workshops and trainings to better my craft and found myself deeply jealous of my classmates who had “the better bodies.”

Can you relate?

Giving Up Too Soon

post image

Giving up too soon. Giving up when the going gets tough. Giving up and getting upset, lashing out on others, and becoming the victim.

Perhaps it’s why we live in a society that is all about “wanting what we want and wanting it NOW.”

Our egos do the talking. It’s never our fault but the fault of someone else or something else…an outside circumstance.
