barefoot

I had a great conversation with one of my coaches about working out barefoot last week.

If you’re thinking about working out barefoot, here are three things to consider:  Continue reading

5 Things I Learned from My 20s (CFC Opinion)

Looking At The One

Hope you’ll read on and share your “20s revelations”! Continue reading

Can Your Sports Bra Be Fashionable & Functional?

Michi Sports Bra

Doing tuck jumps in this would definitely cause a scene…

I just stumbled across a very interesting post on Well+Good this morning about “fashion-forward” sports bras. Especially as a woman who is a bit top-heavy, I always vacillate about whether my sports bras can be both fashionable and functional. I mean, I love looking cute at the gym, but I also need support! Here are my quick thoughts on some of the sports bras featured on Well+Good- check them out & then tell me, what matters in your sports bra: fashion, function or both? Continue reading

shaun-t-live-bg

“What could be more INSANE than a Shaun-T hybrid?”

I mentioned that I would be posting a review of my experience with InsaniT25 (a hybrid of Insanity & T25) in my “Insanity Drop Outs” post a few weeks ago, so I didn’t want to leave you waiting! Check out my review, results & the hybrid calendar (created by none other than Shaun-T’s bestie, Tania aka “The Machine”)!

Curry Shrimp Quinoa w/ Roasted Red Peppers (Healthy & Diabetic-Friendly Recipe #20)

Quinoa Pattie Topped w:Curry Shrimp

This recipe is my take on a recipe in the T25 Nutrition Guide! For those who don’t know, every T25 DVD set comes with an eating plan as well; T25 isn’t just about the workout! So I took a look at the nutrition guide & I thought I’d add a little heat, spice and shrimp to one of the recipes. The great thing about quinoa is that it’s high in protein, is gluten-free and, when boiled and then toasted on a skillet, has a great crunch that’s reminiscent of fried rice! #healthyandyummy To pull this off, here’s what you’ll need:

FIRST EVER! CFC “Insanity Dropouts” Accountability Group! (Starts FEB 9th!!)

Shaun-T-Insanity-Challenge-Pack

It’s been over three years since I’ve done the Shaun-T Insanity program, but recently I started doing the workouts again as part of an InsaniT25 hybrid Challenge Group (look out for the review of my experience ;-) )!

As I burned it out to power jumps and push up jacks I thought “OMG I’m exhausted!” “I wonder if there are people out there who have Insanity but didn’t ever finish? I would love to workout with and provide accountability to some Insanity Drop-Outs!!” I posted the idea on the CFC Facebook page and got a HUGE response!!

So the question is: are you insane enough to try again? ;-) Continue reading
