Do we really love the “Dad Bod”??

post image

Lately I have been reading a lot about the “Dad bod”. A body type that includes a beer gut, no ab definition and flab in areas that most women would hate to see on themselves. Most of the stories/blogs that I have come across claim that women everywhere are falling in love with this body image, embracing the meatier men and ignoring those who spend time staying fit and lean.

Well, honestly, I think this is ridiculous. Do we really want to embrace a body image just because it makes us feel prettier and more confident? Women should feel secure about themselves without looking for someone “less fit” in order to make themselves feel happier. We are celebrating a body type that requires no work, no sacrifice or self-control. I am not saying that all men need to have washboard abs and ripped muscles, but they should have a desire to stay healthy and active.

I’ll just lay out my opinion, FLAT OUT! Both sides suck! Let me tell you why.

First of all, no one is perfect. Imperfections are what make everyone unique. There are moments when we say or do things outside the norm and people are threatened by this. But we are all entitled to our own opinions, a luxury we enjoy and should take pride in. People can listen to your opinion or turn a blind eye but the important thing to remember is to make your voice heard and never stay silent.

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.

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

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.

What does Dr. OZ, HuffPost Live and I have in common?

post image

Well everything!

Who knew that when you become vulnerable and state your position on a current “tabloid” event publicly, you’d get sought after by HPL. As soon as I hit send on my newsletter, I received an email from them asking to be a part of an expert panel discussing Dr. Oz’s controversy.
