Stuck at home? Here are two great ways to maintain your fitness without a gym. How to maintain fitness without a gym 1. DITCH THE ALL OR NOTHING APPROACH​ Yea, the gyms are closed. It sucks. Maybe it’s even too cold to go outside or your kids are home. So. What. It is what it is. What are you going to do about it? ​ Accept and adjust. Maybe you can’t hit the weight rack…

One of my friends—she just happens to be my fittest friend—recently asked me for some workout motivation. She started a new job, so her workout routine changed from a group/class setting to working out mostly on her own. She’s usually the one who motivates ME, but I know how it goes. Life changes. Priorities change (i.e. babies). Hell, sometimes you just lose your fitness spark. I absolutely love exercise, and I’ve found myself there a number of…

Many of the women who come to me for one-on-one nutrition and group coaching come to me with hormonal imbalances. Many of these imbalances are a result of overtraining. They’ve adopted the ‘all or nothing’ approach to their nutrition and fitness, which has left their hormones wrecked and in much need of repair and rejuvenation. What is Overtraining Syndrome? Overtraining and overtraining syndrome is a real thing, and it’s not reserved for professional or extreme…

After pouring my blood, (literal) sweat, and tears into this program for the last 3+ months, I’m excited to FINALLY announce that registration for StrongMadeSimple is NOW OPEN! StrongMadeSimple is an intermediate-to-advanced, dumbbell-ONLY at-home training program that includes 24 full-length workouts, all 30-40 minutes in length, and designed to increase strength, definition, and lean lines. This comprehensive 4-days-a-week program is totally do-able for busy women, who want to look like they actually work out, but…

Hey there! I wanted to hop on here and talk about my recent experience with overtraining and why I quit Orangetheory. If you’ve been following along for a little bit, I’ve been kind of beating around the bush about it, just because I was trying to figure things out and what exactly was going on. I was also waiting to get some test results back. I want to preface this post by saying this is…

Did you know that many women are overtraining and don’t even know it? Maybe you’re one of them! Overtraining can cause many health issues, including weight gain…probably the exact opposite of a regular exerciser expects. Let’s explore. You: Overtraining In science-y terms, overtraining syndrome is an imbalance between training and recovery. What that means is that there is too much exercise (for you) at too high of an intensity (for you) without enough recovery time…

No gym? No problem! If your gym is closed and you’re stuck at home, you’re probably worried about losing all of the progress you’ve made. You might not be able to change the situation right now, but you CAN still make progress if you get creative with your workouts and do what you can. If there’s a will, there’s a way! “Those who say they can and those who say they can’t are both right.”…

I admit it. Sometimes I struggle to keep my priorities straight.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Especially when I’m short on time or low on energy. Between being a wife, a mom, a coach, and a blogger, my days get pretty hectic!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I try to get to the gym on most days. I really do! But sometimes, I just can’t. And I don’t want to make excuses. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ On those days I’ll usually just workout at home….

Working Out While Injured No matter how careful we are, injuries can be an unfortunate side effect of working out. If the injury is severe, it makes sense to rest the affected area to prevent further injury. But we don’t want to lose the gains we’ve achieved by resting for too long. So how do you balance the risk of further injury with the desire to stay in shape when you’re injured? How about working…

Once upon a time, I wrote a post about my favorite black leggings. It was back in 2017, but I still love black leggings because 1) they’re flattering; 2) they’re no-nonsense; and 3) they don’t show sweat during workouts (because I’m a sweaty beast). More than two years later, I still love plain black leggings, but I’ve ventured out a bit into patterns and dark colors. I know, I’m sooooo adventurous! 😉 I’ve basically been…

Hey friends! Happy Monday! Just popping in real quick to share some Monday things with you! 🙂 First up, we had our 7th annual Friendsgiving celebration on Saturday. I did a terrible job snapping photos, but, hey, I promise I had an amazing time. I was busy eating, drinking, and being merry with friends, which, of course, is what Friendsgiving is all about! 🙂 Highlights… Bringing a couple of bottles of Mal’s birth year wine….

Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live! As always, I’m so glad to be able to jump on here and answer some of your questions. I have another awesome list of questions from you guys, so let’s get started! 1. How come all macro calculators have different results when I input the same info?  That’s the thing about online calculators – they are all different. There are a lot of very…

Hey guys! Welcome to the next CNC Instagram Live – Orangetheory addition! For those of you that have just started following along, I’ve been going to Orangetheory (OTF) regularly for about a month and have been absolutely loving it! I actually used to go to another location before and loved it, but it was almost a 30 minute drive – a bit far to take a class, so I wasn’t going very often. Luckily for…

Hey friends! I woke up to my Teechino (+ Nutpods + marine collagen) waiting for me in the fridge this morning with a note from Mal on it. How sweet, right? I typically make my morning Teechino the night before because waking up to it, ready to pour over ice, makes me so happy – and finding a surprise note really started my day off on the right foot! 🙂 It’s the little things in…
