Summer Goals

Goals. Secretly everyone has them. Even the most unmotivated people have things they want to do. And usually people have trouble keeping them.


How many times have you seen the gym PACKED with people right after new years or at the beginning of summer trying to work on their "beach bod?"

What happens two weeks later??

They are gone. Goals are forgotten. Hope is lost.

So here's the deal. You gotta be proactive in your goal setting! So start NOW. Not tomorrow. NOW. WRITE DOWN 3 goals for this summer. And make them SMART - Specific. Measureable. Attainable. Realistic. Time bound.

Here are my summer goals -
1. Puke during a workout - not because I ate too close, but because I worked hard enough.
2. Eat Slower - take time to talk between bites. Digest. Don't be the first one done all the time.
3. Stretch more - basically after each workout or at least once a day (I'm terrible at stretching).

Write down your goals. then post them up. look at them often. tell someone and have them keep you accountable. You'll be amazed how well you'll succeed!!

Hello :-)

"'re Crazy." "You eat bird food." "Why do you not lift like normal girls?" "...So what do you eat?" The list goes on....

I've heard it all. In the gym. At College. In the cafeteria. In the grocery store. People ask me all the time why I workout and eat healthy. Sure, I could say I'm bored. I could say I need to stay in shape for water polo. And I could say I want to be "healthy."

But the truth is - I exercise and eat right because I love it. I love being active. I love cooking. I love helping people. This blog isn't meant to be like all the others - it's meant to INSPIRE, CHALLENGE, and MOTIVATE. My goal is to show you that being healthy doesn't have to be painful or unpleasant; that healthy food isn't all cardboard.

Fitness doesn't need to be a pain and burden, it can be fun. And it's as easy as ABC - Attitude, Body, and Cuisine.
