4 Week Healthy Living Kickstart

health-kickstart-vc

Beginnings can be rough. They’re exciting and full of promise, yeah, but they can also be daunting. I feel like this can be especially true when it comes to a lifestyle change. Committing to “healthy living”, for example, doesn’t sound super fun if it means focusing on all of the extra workouts you have to do and all of the yummy things you cannot eat. It doesn’t have to be that way, though! You can take four, itty-bitty baby steps into the world of health and wellness over the course of a month that can spur massive change. Sound appealing?! Well, it starts with food. Nutrition is a major part of feeling and looking good, so instead of making crazy, extreme, overwhelming dietary changes, we’ll focus on food (or more specifically, what goes into your body!) and work on cleaning up your intake in a way that is pretty painless, but seriously beneficial. Whether you’re looking to get back on track or are just starting out with living healthy, embracing these tasks will have you feeling healthy and well in no time! Here’s your roadmap for kicking off a healthy life. (more…)

#WhistleFit! My Review of the Whistle GPS Pet Tracker

Let’s talk pups. My dogs, Phillip and Chauncey, are the absolute loves of my life. I waited nearly 22 years before getting my first furry pet, and Phillip, my five-year-old bichon-shih tzu mix is quite literally the best gift I’ve ever received. Since I’m pretty much your standard crazy dog lady, I was crazy excited when Fit Approach gave me the opportunity to partner with Whistle for their Whistle Fit campaign. Since I’ve spent the past few weeks being extra active with my boys and playing around with the Whistle GPS Pet Tracker, I thought that now would be the perfect time to share my review of the awesome device with you guys! (Plus, I have a coupon code and a giveaway for you, too.) Wanna get #WhistleFit with your pet?! Read on! Here are all of the details. (more…)

  1. Drugstore dupes for high-end beauty buys?! Yes, please! Makeup Alley has the scoop.
  2. Who What Wear calls the latest trend in leggings “controversial”, and I kind of agree! Would you wear white leggings?!
  3. As someone who completely adores “what’s in my bag” stories, this piece from Racked about why we care about what’s inside women’s bags was especially interesting.
  4. Starbucks’ red cups are here, and they’re cute! Take a peek at SELF.
  5. Finally, Fitbit & Greatist partnered to make a list of young, rising stars in the world of health: 34 Under 34! Major fitspo.

Things I’m Excited About This Week!

so-excited-rnI’m a big believer in the importance of having things to look forward to. Anticipation is a powerful thing! One of the best parts about the feeling of anticipation, in my opinion, is the feeling of excitement that goes along with it. Really, is there any better feeling than being really and truly EXCITED about something? I think not. It’s great. Excitement is also a pretty personal thing…you can find out a lot about a person if you can figure out what kind of things excite them, even if the person in question is you. In that spirit, here’s the second installment of my omgSOexcited series! Here are a few things I’m excited about & looking forward to this week.
