What the heck is Booty-Camp?

Im so excited to be teaming up with Bombshell to offer Bombshell Booty-Camp this summer! But this isnt just a run of the mill boot camp with lunges and drill sargents Yes there will be lunges. But SO much more. The way I work with all of my programs is I want those involved to walk away confident that they CAN do this on their own. With weekly nutrition challenges…

Your New Convenience Foods

The thing I hear most often from peopleregardingwhy eating healthy is not an option for them: is that they dont have the time. The argument goes, Im too busy to cook anything so I have to eat on the go. Because of this quick foods like prepackaged meals, frozen dinners, packaged snacks and restaurant meals are faster. I hate to break it to ya, actually Im thrilled to this is…

Some days you DON’T want to work out.

Believe it or not the difference between people who work out regularly and those that dont is simply that. Working out. It isnt that they have more time or better genetics or an unwaivering commitment. They just do it. But whether you are contemplating starting working out for the first time, getting back into the swing of things or you are a regular gym rat; some days you just wont…

Healthy eating doesn’t have to suck

I always feel a little sad for people who tell me they are on a diet, showing me evidence in their big salad with no interesting flavors. I dont think salads are sad, you canhook up a salad (without excessive cheese, croutons or sugary dressing), but typically this flavorless salad toting individual is going to give up on this new diet as soon as they remember how awesome it is…

turns out, you are already stupid hot.

Its true. Youre so pretty it almost hurts my feelings a little. Your body is bangin. You look damn good. All you have to do is own it. The truth is, what makes up those dazzling people, the ones who walk in the room and everyone gravitates toward is simply owning it. They dont makeapologiesfor their thighs, theyre too busy walking around with em. These people are intoxicating because of…

Client feature: Amanda

When Amanda came to me she was out of shape. She was not obese or even overweight by any body calculator standards but wanted to slim down in some areas to feel more comfortable with her body and in her clothes. Amanda described herself as someone who was always naturally thin and never thought much about healthy eating or exercise, but her habits eventually caught up with her as her…

An open letter to Rush Limbaugh

*I am responding to this which was shared with me by Fit Villains* Mr. Limbaugh, I am not a fan. But of all of the ridiculous things you have said this tiny soundbite marched me straight over to my soapbox. In a few short sentences you illustrated, in my opinion, what keeps women feeling badly about themselves and Americans unhealthy in general. First of all I dont understand how Michelle…

How to deal with everyone else

As long as you make similar choices to those around you, it is likelyno one will have anything to say about your health. In college, when I was living off of velveeta and party pizzas no one asked me where I was getting my fiber. Aside from cardio provided by going out dancing I did a lot of not moving. No one presented to me their concerns about my cardiovascular…

Ms. New Booty

Some people remember when they heard Elvis or the Beatles for the first time. For me, it was Sir Mix A lot. Not because of his musical geniusbut due to his profound love of big booties. When this song came out I was being teased in school with the charming nick name Buffalo butt. This later turned to ghetto booty in junior high and was suddenly a good thing (I…
