Heart of a champion

I dunno if this surprises anyone but I am not a runner! So for those who do race long-distance, I am always amazed and inspired at that kind of athleticism. A few weeks ago, I was especially intrigued by my friend Nichole, and her amazing story towards chasing her goal to qualify for the Boston […] Read more…

If you always allowed children to be in control of what they put into their mouth, I’m pretty convinced that 80% of it would be sugar.  Just some helpful information: The American Health Association has set these guidelines for children’s […] Read more…

Gym-timidation

Favorite thing I’ve heard all week: Me and my husband left the gym, and I asked how his workout was, and he said “It was good, but I had really wanted to do squats… but a group of girls had taken over the squat rack.” HELL YES. I mean, sorry, babe. BUT I can’t help […] Read more…

Booty Work

I like big butts and I can not lie. If there’s one thing I learned from bikini competitions, it’s that soft, saggy, or flat butts do not fare well. Good thing I know how to fix that 😉 Just a little lesson on glutes: Booties are made up of 3 parts: gluteus maximum, minimum, and […] Read more…
