Why Massage is so Important for Athletes (plus a Deep Recovery Massage Track Giveaway)

When you work out, it’s not the exercises, or the weights, or the effort that makes you stronger. In fact, what you’re doing when you’re strength training, or going on a long run, is breaking your muscles down. You’re causing micro tears in your muscle fibers. Sounds awful, right? Well, the good news is that […]

Thrive by GoMacro Review and Giveaway

There are a ridiculous number of snack bars available these days – half of the snack aisle of my local supermarket is completely dedicated to granola and protein bars. How are you supposed to make a choice faced with so many? You guys already know I’m a fan of GoMacro, so when they reached out to […]

The Best Running Books for Women

I love reading, but it’s the first thing to fall by the wayside when I’m feeling overwhelmed with life. These days I’m more likely to fall into the couch and throw something on Netflix at the end of the day when I have the boys down. My goal for summer is to work on a long […]

Resistance Band Workout (and Perfect Bands Kit giveaway!)

Sometimes it’s all too easy to ditch your workout when it’s cold out; hot out; the gym’s too far away; you’re tired; you forgot your sneakers; or Mercury is in retrograde. And then when you’re home, it can be even easier to come up with an excuse – I mean, what can you do without […]

Sshh! The Baby’s Sleeping Living Room Workout

Gone are the days of working out at the gym, earbuds in, focusing on my form, the weights, how long I’ve been resting between sets. Now? I’m the queen of the living room workout and it’s usually timed perfectly for Baby T’s nap time. Big brother is usually ‘working out’ with me, or I might set […]

Hydrate with FIJI Water – Giveaway!

I am not great at drinking enough water. I’m talking about suddenly realizing I am desperately thirsty and can’t remember the last time I had a glass of water. (If coffee counted as hydration, I would be aces.) Actually, the only time I am really on top of getting enough water is when I’m working […]

Running and Rolling: Moji Foot Review and Giveaway

Ahh, runner’s feet! Is there anything more beautiful to look upon and delightful to the touch than black toenails, thick callouses, blisters and crazy running shoe tan lines? Okay, so usually you don’t have all those things at the same time, but it’s definitely my feet that are affected first whenever I increase mileage or […]

GoMacro MacroBars Review and Giveaway

Recently, a little box of delicious was delivered to me. I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting a lot from the taste of GoMacro MacroBars. When the company reached out to me to offer a box of their MacroBar Minis, as well as a box to give away to one of you lovelies, I checked […]
