Way back in January, me and my friend were chatting over coffee about our workout regimens. When she told me that she planned to walk 20miles that day, I nearly dropped my cup! I asked her what she was training for and she told me that she generally walks/hikes several miles each week as part of her management of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (“PCOS”). Given how important PCOS is to every woman’s understanding of why she might be struggling with her health & weight gain, I asked my friend to share her story here on chicfitchef.com. She agreed, but did not want her name or photo used. So, for privacy reasons, this is one interview that does not include any photos for illustration. Please read on for this very personal story on PCOS and whether you might need to speak to your doctor. Continue reading

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

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

I just stumbled across a very interesting post on Well+Good this morning about “fashion-forward” sports bras.

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
