BOSTON STRONG!

#MotivationalMonday

When I’m pacing a marathon, I choose a “focus” point for each mile. Around mile 19, with only 7 miles remaining, I encourage runners to focus on what they were doing just 7 YEARS prior to the race. So much can happen in that timespan. And typically, my runners either weren’t running AT ALL, or … Read More

SUMMER BUTT SHAPERS!

#FitnessFriday

BUTT…I don’t have time to exercise! I know, I know…I hear it all the time. In my never-ending attempt to get America healthy, feeling and looking great with little time to give, I offer up the following exercises to tone and shape that butt of yours! I’d like to be proper and talk about this area of our bodies with poise, … Read More

DON’T THROW OUT THE PLANT!

#ThirstyThursday

Don’t throw out your ALOE VERA PLANT! Why, you ask? Because your large intestine is the quarterback for your body, and it needs that Aloe Vera juice to release food residues, chemicals, toxins, and bacteria. This is important when you’re trying to get healthy, gain energy, and lose weight, because all of the aforementioned create ONE … Read More

SWEET POTATO BROWNIES

#WednesdaysWeCook, Dessert Recipes, Recipes

I LOVE BROWNIES! I’m not going to lie…In my “previous life” there was really nothing better than a large Diet Coke and brownies. I recall many a Fourth of July picnic that consisted of NO real food…only my “Dream Team” of chocolate goodness and sugar free fizz. But then I got smart and realized my … Read More

SORT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!

#MotivationalMonday

If you’re like me, you own way too many running shoes and too many “things” in general. Intuitively, we know this isn’t a smart move for many reasons, yet we cannot seem to help ourselves, right? CASE IN POINT: take a look at my closet! I actually own more running and athletic shoes than fashion … Read More

QUINOA AND LENTIL CAKES

#WednesdaysWeCook, Dinner Recipes, Recipes

It’s a typical Wednesday. I head to my fridge to see what needs used up to create a wonderful, but easy and healthy dinner. Today’s no exception. With chicken sausage to use up, and my ongoing desire for beans and rice (or something similar), I realized just the thing for today’s recipe as I meandered … Read More

10 DAY CHALLENGE

#MotivationalMonday

EAT YOUR VEGETABLES! You’ve likely heard this your whole life! And, it’s true! So, let’s cut to the chase: I challenge you to eat 10 servings of fruit and/or vegetables daily for the next 10 days. Why? …you already know it will help you to be healthy, but what you might not know are the specifics. … Read More

HAVE A BALL, PART TWO

#FitnessFriday

The exercise ball has become my friend, and I hope yours too! It adds fun to the workout, hits many muscle groups, and requires balance too. When you add these variables, you’ll get more “bang for your buck” than if you just hit the gym equipment. And of course, I love the added benefit of … Read More

HAVE A SPIRULINA DAY!

#TransformationTuesday

SPUR-WHAT-A???….It’s in EVERY Purium Shake! If you haven’t heard of Spirulina, a type of blue-green algae, it’s time to welcome this SUPERFOOD into your home! Admittedly, I hate to overuse the word, “SUPERFOOD,” seeing as it’s so widely used. This time, however, it might just be well-deserved. Spirulina is 65% Amino Acids/Protein, is rich in vitamins, … Read More

HAVE A BALL, PART ONE

#FitnessFriday

When you’ve hit a plateau in weight loss, you’re feeling a bit “burned out” on your normal routine, or you need a challenge to hit that next level, it’s time to HAVE A BALL! I love the exercise ball, because it requires balance and engages more than one muscle group. Grab an exercise ball, and … Read More
