It means, as an ACE certified fitness trainer, I’ve been given the awesome opportunity to form a team of ladies that will represent ACE and will train and complete this upcoming 5K. Finishing a 5k is quite the accomplishment and can be overwhelming for many women. I’m super proud of the ladies taking steps to accomplish their goals!
The purpose of the group is to provide support, encouragement, and proper training information so these women can safety and proudly cross the finish line.
Right now we have a team of 6 ladies. Our team consists of Tricia McAllister, Alison Trado, Karla Delisse, Laura Santiago, Christine Zinge, and Alexandrina Brittny.
These ladies definitely deserve an applause for the steps and hard work they are putting into training and leading healthier lives! Keep Reading»
Eating a gluten free lifestyle isn’t always easy. I personally struggle with it at times. Although, I’m not allergic to gluten I do find myself to be sensitive. Anytime I eat gluten, I end up feeling bloated and too many days in a row I even notice my skin will break out. So I know that eating gluten is not good for me, my body, or my health so I choose to stick to a gluten free diet and sometimes finding tasty snacks isn’t always easy.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try Blue Diamond Artisan Nut Thins Crackers as part of the Naturally Savvy blogger program. I was aware that Blue Diamond had a brand of almonds. The chocolate almonds are one of my favorites; however, I was unaware that they made crackers, so I was rather excited to have the opportunity to receive some samples and test them out. Keep Reading»

Eating healthy can be difficult but by planning ahead and finding short cuts to meal prep it doesn’t have to be as difficult or time consuming! My top tips for easy meal prep include:
1. Plan your meals for the week.
Think ahead! Plan for leftovers when possible (especially for your lunch the next day if you’re not going to be home) and cook in bulk whenever you can. There’s no need to cook a bunch of meals everyday, so cook extras whenever you can.
A great tool I love the is the Paprika App for my Iphone, Ipad, and Mac. It allows me to always have all my recipes handy and so I can plan all my meals for the week. It even has a meal planner option and allows you to make a grocery list from that!
Tropical goodness is all I really have to say about this smoothie. Eat it for breakfast or even as dessert…either way it’s SOOO TASTY. Filled with pineapple, mango, and coconut you can’t help but think you’re sitting on a tropical beach somewhere. Enjoy!
Don’t Sabotage Your Weight Loss With Too Low of Calories: How To Eat Enough Calories
You may be wondering why I would even consider addressing how to eat enough calories. Isn’t the problem with most people eating TOO many calories?
Well yes, eating too many calories is definitely a problem, and a big factor in increasing trends of obesity, BUT not eating enough calories also leads to lack of results and carrying around extra weight. I know it seems a bit crazy but it’s true.
For example, have you tried eating low calories or just one meal a day but lacked any sort of weight loss results like you planned on? This is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. You won’t likely get fatter BUT you also won’t loss the extra weight you’re trying to get off. Keep Reading»
