6 FREE HIIT Workouts to Punch out the Winter Pudge

As I’m writing this very blog, I am wearing Uggs and a wool scarf on a cold and snowy Sunday…..in APRIL. And though I’m growing very tired of gray skies and sweaters, I know that before I know it, I’ll be complaining to you about how blasted hot it is outside. The sunshine is coming, my friend. And when it does, the layers will be coming off, and you’ll have nowhere to hide. Not even your vanity will be able to bear the cardigan that’s causing you to pit out in the ninety-degree heat. And I’m telling you right now that you are hiding nothing with that skirt you’re sporting at...

5 Ways Knowing Your DNA Can Help You Lose Weight

We all know that there’s no one size fits all approach when it comes to diet and exercise. But outside of a lot of trial and epic errors, we haven’t necessarily known why our friend Katie Keto felt so energized on her diet plan while we were left wanting to curl up with some Nutter Butters and a nap. We haven’t understood how we can put in all that time on the treadmill and not lose a pound while our running partner is no longer a Chunky Monkey despite eating a Ben & Jerry’s version of it every night. For years we have wanted to blame our genetics for our slow metabolisms and/or...

Mindful Eating Challenge

We’ve all been there. As we’re cleaning the kitchen, we scrape our kids’ scraps of mac ‘n cheese right off their plates and into our pie hole. We stand at the Super Bowl buffet and unwittingly polish off 2 (or 22ish?) chips only half-aware during the half-time show. We eat while watching television, driving the car, and checking our email all the while considering ourselves multi-taskers. And we are. We’re knocking off our to-do list AND thickening our waistlines all at the same time. SOUND FAMILIAR? For those of us who love food, the word “diet” is pretty much “die” with...

Get on the Honor Roll with a Solid C+

Last year about this time I was having dinner with a friend who was excited to share with me that she’d recently found consistency in her workout efforts. Though her schedule had been challenging, she hadn’t let a few days off turn into a complete derailment like in times passed. She’d also tried out a few new workout DVDs, and instead of becoming frustrated as she was accustomed to feeling when she couldn’t keep the pace of the instructor, she decided to change her focus. “Cheryl” instead concentrated on just finishing the workouts, allowing herself breaks whenever she needed....

The Kapsule Kitchen – Take the Question of “What’s for Dinner” Off the Plate

The Kapsule Kitchen – Take the Question of “What’s for Dinner” Off the Plate

It’s 6pm. The children are politely sitting around the table thanking you for the wonderful vegetables your husband has just prepared for dinner. They politely request a second helping while your family finishes up a riveting conversation about everyone’s best experiences of the day. After Junior clears the dishes and you finish your glass of Merlot, you all go outside to enjoy the 65 degree weather on a leisurely stroll. And then you wake up. Seriously. More likely it’s 6pm, and you haven’t even thought about what’s for dinner. You’re starving. Both kids are in need of a taxi to...

What the Health?

What the Health?

Have you ever been fish-slapped in the face? Me neither, but I just had an experience that I imagine would feel like that. It grabbed my attention. It kind of embarrassed me. It grossed me out. I won’t likely forget the encounter anytime soon. And though it was meant to perhaps teach me a valuable lesson, I wish I could have learned it without the stench and the sting. “What the health” you ask? Exactly. As I’m writing this blog, I just finished watching the investigative documentary, “What the Health?”,(can also view on Netflix) which very convincingly illustrates the health and...
