3 tips to learn to like exercise

Those people. You know the kind. They live in athleisure wear. Constantly post their workouts on social media. Occasionally celebrate whatever the hell a PR is (something to do with heavy weights?). They go to the gym on their lunch break. Y’know…fitness freaks. Those people. If you’re not one of them, you may be perplexed […] Read more…

Weight lifting for people who prefer cardio

I remember my first time getting laser hair removal. I didn’t know what to expect in terms of the pain level, and Google results weren’t exactly comforting. But I was determined to get the most out of my Groupon. I sat in the reclined chair and the attentive technician handed me a stress ball. “This […] Read more…

How to change your body and feel like a bad ass

When I first started working out, I was all about the treadmill and elliptical–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I just wanted to be skinny. My attempts to “tone” were basically doing the triceps push-down machine and the hip abductor machine. Maybe some leg extensions too. I remember noticing that the fittest people […] Read more…

Creating a Home Workout From Beginners to Advanced

If you’ve been following me, you know the past two months were stressful due to my home renovation (which came out beautiful, btw). I also had some deadlines due during this time.

4 Easy Exercise Guidelines to Stay Fit

I was 21. Young and just starting to understand the world. Fresh out of a break-up from my first long-term boyfriend.

How Fitness Can Make You More Creative

I sometimes wonder how many people are turned off by fitness because it’s a seemingly superficial pursuit. The benefits are well-known, but stereotypes endure. Fitness is the realm of meatheads, jocks and juicers. It’s ass-out squat videos and flat tummy tea posts in our IG feeds. Not exactly a thing of substance. Although I know […] Read more…

The Glute Guide

If there’s one thing Instagram has taught us, it’s that ass is in. It always has been in my book, but with the rise of social media fitness figures, the booty is in your face like never before. A shapely and firm backside is aesthetically pleasing, but strengthening your glutes is also paramount for improving […] Read more…

Give Yourself Permission to Slack Off

We all have those days where we don’t feel like doing SHIT. Sunday was one of those days for me. I drank the night before and ended up taking two naps during the day, which zaps my energy. It could’ve been so easy for me to just say screw it and start over on Monday. […] Read more…

What It Takes to Reach Your Goal: Going Mental

  As the “fitness girl” in many of my social circles, I get asked for advice every now and then. The number one question is usually, “How can I lose weight?” When people ask this they’re looking for advice about specific diet and exercise protocols, but in my opinion, eating healthy and working out is […] Read more…

A Blue Workout

I haven’t been myself lately. Although terribly neglected, I’ve kept this blog around in case I eventually shrug the cloak of apathy and depression that’s been weighing heavy on my shoulders.   Without going into too much detail, I’ve had many bad days lately. A lot of personal drama has stripped me of my essence, […] Read more…
