I heard at some point the saying that “willpower is a muscle, it gets stronger the more you use it.” I love that, because it’s so true! I have struggled over the years with consistency, and willpower really helps with that. I started a new round of 21 Day Fix last Monday and it’s awesome […]

That’s why it became America’s #1 fitness and nutrition program. Now, get seriously shredded in the shortest time possible with 21 Day Fix EXTREME, created by Autumn Calabrese. This […]

It’s Sunday. What are you taking for lunch tomorrow? I agree with the research that shows eating several small meals throughout the day is more beneficial than stuffing yourself three times a day. Unfortunately, sometimes, I don’t properly plan ahead so when it’s time to pack my lunch in a hurry, and I leave for […]

This is a hard post to share. But I am sharing my journey….the ups AND downs. It’s tough when people don’t tell us what we want to hear. Or offer comments, unsolicited, that ruffle our feathers despite being true. I got upset with my husband this morning. As I finished making his lunch, I told […]

I started Beachbody’s newest program today. It’s called 21 Day Fix, and it’s a 21-day program (duh?) focused on portion controlled eating and well-rounded workouts that are just 30 minutes. This program is coming at a perfect time for me. Last October I ran my first marathon, and I took a break for a few […]

The toughest part of many nutrition plans, for me anyway, is following a rigid, prescribed plan. Some recipes have off-the-wall ingredients or just don’t sound appealing to me. That’s probably why I really don’t follow the eating plan when I start a new workout…which leads to the reason why my results aren’t as good as […]
