It’s that time again! Our annual Fitness Lover’s Gift Guide is BACK and ready to make your holiday wish listing a breeze. You can even take a look back at last years for even more inspo!
The holidays…decorations, family, friends, cheer, and relaxation as we near the end of the year. Oh, and probably feeling a bit sluggish from high sugar/alcohol intake, stress, lack of exercise and subsequent weight gain.
What if we embraced all that’s great about the holidays and just left the rest. Wouldn’t it be great to start the New Year feeling fit and fabulous, instead of heavy, lazy and filled with regret about all those bad decisions?
So you've been working hard on some goals and seeing some great results. Then BOOM, the holiday season hits and you suddenly find that it's MUCH harder to get to the gym every day and to stick to your nutrition goals. That's okay! Different seasons of the year mean different seasons of life. It's accepting those seasons and being conscious of your nutrition and exercise that will help you to not go overboard and ruin your hard work.
Here are a few tips to not ruining your progress through the Holiday Season:
Embrace Change | Be Bold | Live Inspired
Everyone is welcome! Grab a girlfriend and jump in for an incredible women's retreat.
As a runner, it’s very easy to fuel up with processed gels, sugary electrolyte replacements, and carb-heavy snacks. Unfortunately, these types of fuel can be loaded with sugar, additives and hydrogenated fats.
The information geared toward women in the fitness industry makes me sick. We are blasted with images of bodies that have been specifically fueled and trained to look a certain way… whether a bodybuilder in a non-functional bikini or some celebrity comes to mind, the principle is the same. We are led to believe that if we only worked harder or ate less or paid more, that body would appear. As if that’s why we should be exercising anyway. It’s ALL about how we look. Articles and programs and supplements and everything we see pushes us toward either buying something or committing to something in order to LOOK like the cover of whatever fitness mag is most prominently displayed or whatever online group paid to get their stuff to the top of your Google search results. Look, I realize that everyone has a to make a living, and the industry has it figured out. Make people feel inferior and tell them you can bring them up to your level of useless shapely strength and they’ll be worth something! Just sign here. Gross.
