No Sugar Challenge

Image compliments of http://www.usafutures.com/sugar_trading_broker.jpg If you are anything like me over the past week, you have over-indulged. I have been eating more sugar than ever. I swear it is like a drug because it is so addicting! The sugar binging ends today though. There is no nutritional value in sugar and it does no good for your body. It causes inflammation, extra calories and fat, and ultimately has many other negative impacts on your body. I challenge you to stop {Read More}

Fitbit or Not

Do you own a Fitbit? I think I am one of the only person without a Fitbit or an equivalent device. Tori Burch even has a fancy smancy version and Fitbit case to make it even more stylish to wear. It seems like everyone I know has one except for me. I consider myself a fit person, but I don’t think a Fitbit would do much for me. Here’s why: 1.

My Favorite Fitness App – Mapmyrun

I am not the kind of person that was “born to run.” Although I enjoy it now, I didn’t always.

It is so much easier to run outside (now that the weather is finally getting warmer) than it is to run on the treadmill. Even though {Read More}

Sitting is the New Smoking

I saw the article featured below in the Cleveland Clinic update I receive in my email every month. This is not the first time that I heard about sitting being the new smoking. Being active is important to me, but I sit a lot during the day. I try to get up and move around, but often times I can’t get up in the middle of a long meeting to walk around. Then it’s back to the computer to check {Read More}

Bye Bye Jiggly Arms

Not sure what is going on here, but my triceps need a lot of attention when I am working out these days. I am aware of that area starting to droop if I tend to ignore it at the gym. I don’t want to be one of those women where my entire arm starts flapping around when I lift it up. What to do? PICK UP SOME WEIGHTS! I take this killer workout class once a week and there are {Read More}
