Five Cocktails without the Calories

Five Cocktails without the Calories

So it's been a long week of grinding away at the gym and keeping up with work, and now that it's finally Friday, it's finally time for some you time.

Though if you're like the rest us, going out and enjoying a few drinks can kind of seem like an invitation to undoing all the hard work you've put in at the gym. And as many cocktails hide some serious calories and grams of sugar beneath their little umbrellas, you would be right in being more than a little hesitant.

It's true, some drinks can easily rack up the calories, a single margarita itself can add a massive 500 calories to your diet with just a single glass, quietly sabotaging your progress in looking as good as you feel. And we even begun to talk about how much sugar some drinks can pack.

Taking Care of Your Skin While Building Your Booty

Taking Care of Your Skin While Building Your Booty

Hey there fit sisters,

I wanted to talk to you today about something that I feel is overlooked in the fitness world sometimes. Often when we squat, lift, and run our way to a body we can feel proud of, we measure our success and health by the numbers on the scale or how we slay in those yoga pants. This can cause us to completely ignore one of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, taking care of yourself both inside and out.

As we sweat it out day after day in the gym, we are not only putting our muscles through the ringer but also our skin as well. Dirty equipment, grime from the day, and a whole slew of things we don't want sitting on our skin can all strike and wreak havoc on our poor complexions clogging our pores and causing break outs, which let's be honest, no one has time for as an adult.

So let's take a hard look at what we can do to make sure our skin is clear, beautiful, and looking its best even if we hit the gym like beasts.

My secret tips to growing the booty

My secret tips to growing the booty

So lately you have been sweating it out at the gym, trying to sculpt your behind into the booty you know it can be, but it seems that no matter how many session you put in each week your booty selfies are still falling a bit…flat.

But before you decide to call it a wrap and give up having the booty of your dreams, let's get back to the basics and find out exactly how we can build one.

The Booty of Your Dreams might be missing one key Element……

While Bulgarian squats, cable assisted kickbacks, and glute bridges are an essential part of any booty building exercise plan, they actually break down the muscle fibers of your back side causing microscopic tears and breaks within the muscle itself.

 Though that is completely natural, in fact all exercises, and exercise in general, is simply just regulated and regimented destruction of your muscle fibers.

It's only after you hit the gym does the real building part begin….

Say Hello to Your New Best Friend, the Jogging Stroller

Say Hello to Your New Best Friend, the Jogging Stroller

Hey there fellow fit moms,

I wanted to talk to you about something I realized I had been missing for a while without quite noticing

Now that both of my boys are a little older and way past their days of needing a stroller, I don't get to spend my daily jogs laughing and hanging out with my boys.  When Josiah was still small, I would bring along on my jogs and while he wasn't completely awake for my runs, it was nice to have our little time together. Each day it was something we both, I'd like to think so, enjoyed and looked forward too. For me it meant quality time spent with my youngest while still being able to enjoy exercising, for Josia it meant time with his special running toys. 

As I took a quick jog down memory lane, and made a couple more laps just to get my full run in, it got me thinking a fit mom's best friends are easily running and the jogging stroller. When it comes to balancing family time with work outs, nothing quite cuts it like running. I get the opportunity to spend time doing my two favorite things, exercising and making my boys laugh, I've yet to see any gym offer those classes.

You Earned Your Stripes, Now Wear Them Proudly

You Earned Your Stripes, Now Wear Them Proudly

Hey there fellow fit moms,

I wanted to talk about something that has always been on the forefront of my mind, both as a mom who overcame not being happy with her body and as someone who helps other moms find their inner hotness, but has been something I haven't quite known how to approach until now.

 So let's talk wearing our tiger stripes as moms…

How did you know about my favorite pair of yoga pants? Don't worry I'm not talking about those stripes, though I also have a pair of those yoga pants too and yes, I love them stripes. But we’re talking about stretch marks, the human body’s own natural tiger stripe print yoga pants.

Before we get into loving our stripes though, I wanted to talk about why this is such a touchy topic for many people and why we even have to have this conversation about loving things our bodies do naturally.

So…Lets jump in…

Goodbye Baby Bump…Hello Mom Abs!

Goodbye Baby Bump…Hello Mom Abs!

Hey there my sexy mom sisters!

Today let's get the skinny on something that I get asked quite often while I'm out meeting you wonderful ladies for our butt building weekends... "Can I still have six pack abs even though I'm a new mom?"

You would be surprised how many of my fellow sexy moms are uncertain if they will ever be able to reclaim their six pack abs, or in some cases, welcome those new show stoppers for the first time.

And before we dive into how you can say no to a one piece this summer and explain the inherent struggles you'll face as you sweat your way to your own killer set of #MomAbs, it's important to say, that yes you too can have #MomAbs!

"Before I had my kids I would but now I can't find the time to…"

Being a mom means being on-call at all hours of the day without any sick days.

Who else is going to make sure soccer games end with a smile and a snack, that all monster defenses are properly set before bedtime, and every scraped elbow finds a Band-Aid?

Between squeezing in answering work emails at after school practices and checking homework whileyou make dinner, it can feel as if there are not quite enough hours in the day and certainly not enough to add a workout into the mix.

But…
