I’m excited to announce that I am the American Council on Exercise (ACE) Ambassador for the Women’s Running Series 5K in St. Petersburg coming up November 24th.
So what exactly does this mean?
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! Read the rest of Foxy ACE of Hearts Team Trains to Cross the Finish Line

17 Surefire Ways to Get Fat REALLY Fast
Are you tired of being skinny, in shape, and fit? Do you want to get fat really fast? I know it must be real irritating having so much energy, getting compliments all the time about how good you look, rarely ever getting sick, and feeling great every single day. So I have compiled a list of the top 15 ways to get fat really fast, you know, just in case…
Start by eating really bad:
1. Eat at fast food restaurants as often as possible. It is convenient right? So why not. Great places to choose from are McDonald’s, Burger King, and Taco Bell. Always supersize.
2. If you want a fancier meal be sure to go to Chili’s and order this for dinner:
Appetizer Trio (eating only half as there will probably be someone with you) = 966 calories
Jalapeno Smokehouse Burger = 2130 calories
Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie Dessert = 1290
Total calories consumed = 4386 calories
Total fat gained on your body = 1.25 pounds
3. Drink lots of alcohol. Consume at least a 12 pack of beer or 5 Margaritas on a daily basis. You could gain around a half a pound every day. Read the rest of 17 Surefire Ways to Get Fat REALLY Fast

6 Top Tips for a Healthy Future
A Guest Post By Amber Paley
We all want to be healthy as we age, and that’s probably one of the reasons you’re on this website. Here are some tips to ensure you are healthy now and later.
Take Care of Your Skin
Properly maintaining your skin isn’t just about vanity, it’s also about your health. Your skin provides protection to your body; it protects our internal body, controls our body’s temperature, and keeps substances harmful to our body from entering it. Given that, it is imperative that we keep our skin healthy. Ask any dermatologist how to maintain healthy skin and they’ll tell you this: LOTS OF SUNSCREEN and moisturizer. Sunscreen usage is key to maintaining healthy skin and it prevents skin cancers. Moisturizer helps replenish your skin, especially your top layer (the epidermis), and the layer of oil, i.e. the stratum corneum, that protects the epidermis. As we get older, our skin thins and becomes less protective to our bodies; it is thus important that we keep it as healthy as possible. Read the rest of 6 Top Tips for a Healthy Future

5 Tips To Lose Holiday Weight Gain
If you are like most people, keeping your waistline in check over the last few weeks has been a challenge. With holiday parties and erratic schedules your diet has probably not been what one would exactly call healthy. And on top of that, hectic schedules and well even just gloomy, cold weather can leave you unmotivated to workout. So now is the time to get back on track with your diet and fitness routine so you can start to lose unwanted holiday weight gain and get back into shape. Here are a few tips to get you headed in the right direction:
1. Toss the crap. If sugar cookies, chocolate candy, and egg nog have been your main food source for the last few weeks it’s time to clean up your diet. If you have any of these foods left in your house it may be a good idea to toss them in the trash. There’s no need to have the temptation lying around when you are trying to eat healthy again. So toss any unhealthy leftovers, and instead hit the store for some healthy fruits, veggies, nuts, lean meats, and whole grains. Read the rest of 5 Tips To Lose Holiday Weight Gain
