Did you just get a promotion at work that now requires frequent flyer miles? Are you spending the summer touring Europe? Do you have a destination occasion coming up? These are not good excuses to give up on your fit and fabulous lifestyle. You have finally settled into your healthy routine at home and life threw you a curve ball. Big deal! With my tried-and-true trip tips, you’ll be able to keep your eyes on the prize — no matter where your travels take you.
Have cookies. Will travel. Not only are these moist and chewy treats gluten free, packed with dark chocolate goodness and baked to perfection in only 10 minutes, they’re perfect for traveling. If you and your sweetheart have planned a weekend getaway for Valentine’s Day, be sure to pack a batch of these better-than-average chocolate chip cookies. I warn you, though, you’ll probably fall in love like we did. Brandon and I make these cookies every couple of weeks, because they’re so quick and easy!
In Week 1, you were armed with the know-how to get started. Hopefully, now you have taken action and started exercising regularly (three or more days per week) and eating healthy new foods. (Remember that list of pantry essentials?) It’s normal if you find these lifestyle changes a bit challenging, especially in the first week. But as the saying goes, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” If your patience is wearing thin, I offer these tips to help keep you on course — and building that body of your dreams!
More often than not, the hardest part of any routine is just getting to the start line. You’ve probably been there before. You plan to jog in the morning, but when the sun rises your brain drums up a million excuses — you’re too tired and it looks a little cloudy outside. There is a way to break the barriers, and that’s what I’m here to help you do! Just as you have to get dressed for a morning jog, this four-week evolution has its starting point. Actually, it has 7 starting points to ensure there is no room for failure.
No matter how fit and healthy you are, we’re all making New Year’s resolutions to be better than ever. As we like to say, there’s always room for improvement — whether it be physical, emotional or otherwise. Unfortunately, we humans don’t always embrace change with open arms. But don’t lose hope yet; you can endure big transformations by taking baby-sized steps. So, pull on your big-boy pants and let’s get moving!
Welcome to 2013 — a new year, signifying new beginnings. Naturally, this is the time to make our New Year’s resolutions. And after all that holiday eating, you’re probably eager to make some changes. The sad reality, however, is that most resolutions only last 3 to 14 days. Your car doesn’t run out of gas that quickly, so why should you? Make this year different by resolving to evolve…into a better version of yourself.
We are always told to drink more water. But as fit, active people we can’t rely on water alone — even during the colder months. When we’re sweating, we lose electrolytes that must be replaced, or we risk becoming dehydrated. To help avoid the effects of dehydration (i.e. cramping, low energy, heat exhaustion), learn the what, when and how of electrolytes.
