The Cheat Meal Is A Big Fat Lie, But…

How many of you have ever cheated on a diet? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Well, if you’re like me, your hand may have shot up instantly. It’s can be so unbelievably difficult to resist the temptation of a hot delicious slice of pizza or a sinfully sweet slice of cheesecake, both of which are most likely not a part of ANY diet…well at least any diet that works. I know that for me personally, I have to dig deep to keep myself from going on a binge-fest at times…because we all know that just ONE slice of pizza may not satisfy my hunger completely. I mean, who doesn’t struggle with their...

Fitness: Some Motivation Required

Have you ever been driving and listening to the radio and heard a song that motivated the crap out of you? The lyrics spoke to you, left goosebumps on your skin, and gave you the biggest adrenaline rush? Just a few words eliciting in you a desire to drive straight home and workout? Yes? No? Maybe? Or what about scrolling down the news feed on your Facebook page and seeing someone post an inspirational quote or meme about getting healthy and getting active? You’re sitting there at your computer, knowing full well that you’ve been about as active as a sloth that day, and you could really use...

A Bit More Fit

For decades now there has been new technology introduced to help people get on track with their diet and exercise. In recent years, however, there’s been apps to download on your phone and a plethora of wristbands for purchase that will track your every step. And while all of these can be great motivators, some miss the mark entirely by being way overpriced (i.e Nike Fuel band for $269.99) or not completely accurate (i.e Map My Run is fine but sometimes freezes and doesn’t track your run properly). And that’s why I was so happy to find the FitBit. It’s a top of the line activity AND...

It’s NEVER Too Late!

It’s NEVER Too Late!

Being overweight, out of shape, or more than a little “pudgy,” can feel like a demoralizing place to be. Your pride and ego can take a major hit, maybe your clothes don’t fit like they used to, and maybe you don’t have the energy you wish you had. At least that’s how I felt. I’ve been pregnant twice and both times I put on more weight than my doctor recommended. I dug myself a deep hole during those nine months (both times!) and it took a lot of hard work, motivation, and diligence to burn that weight off! But there were so many days where I would step on the scale that I just felt defeated....

Food For Fuel: Spinach, Strawberry, & Feta Salad

Food For Fuel: Spinach, Strawberry, & Feta Salad

Salad, shmalad! Give me a burger! That used to pretty much be my response any time someone offered me a salad for my meal. I used to not find salads filling or all that tasty either, but that’s probably because I didn’t really know how to make one. I mean yeah, I knew how to open a bag of baby spinach and throw in some Ranch dressing (see? I added Ranch, aka one of the most fattening dressing ever) and I thought I was doing my body a favor. I thought I was “eating healthy.” But when the hunger pangs hit me not thirty minutes after I finished my salad, I knew something was wrong. I was trying...

How I Fell In Love With Muay Thai (And You Can Too!)

How I Fell In Love With Muay Thai (And You Can Too!)

When I was younger, I lacked a lot of drive and focus. There wasn’t really anything out there that I was passionate about. I would pick up certain hobbies and drop them out of sheer boredom. I just couldn’t seem to find that something that I loved that drove me to be the best I could be in that area. Until I found Sitan Gym Arizona. I remember it like it was yesterday…my older sister had been going for a little while and each and every night came home drenched in sweat with an odd yet crazy happy smile on her face. “You need to come with me!” she would always say. And after...
