Keeping Teens Busy Over the Summer

Keeping kids busy during summer is always a challenge, even more so as they get older. They’re too old for day camps and play dates, and while they may be self-sufficient you don’t want them glued to their smart phone or video games for two months. In Phoenix, we can’t just send the kids outside … Continued

Motivation Fixes for Working Out at Home

Working out from home can be hard. More difficult than dragging yourself to the gym, even. Why? Well, there’s no one really holding you accountable. You turn on the television or log into the app and hit “play.” But if you’re like me, you’re working out while the house is empty. If you do half … Continued

Vacation with the intent to be active

You don’t need to go away for vacation with the fear you’ll gain weight. I know a lot of people vacation to eat great food, drink great drinks and soak in all the tourist sights.

Sister Love and Body Image

There’s something to be said about getting dolled up and treated like royalty. My sister, Joy, recently entered and won a contest for a sister’s photography session. The photographer was feeling lacking in sisterhood and wanted to honor sisters of all ages. I loved the quality one-on-one time spent with my sister (and the photos … Continued

Be the Light in Someone’s Life

Kindness is one of those things that we forget too often. When we’re angry or frustrated, or just don’t understand someone else’s life or viewpoint, we forget to stop and put ourselves in their shoes.

When I first started on my journey with Beachbody, it was because I needed something different in my life. I knew I needed to make a change. A 30-minute workout every day and Shakeology is the formula that works for me. But then along came a contest, and my motivation increased. Sometimes an added incentive makes … Continued
