Staying Fit and Focused When Winter Weather Keeps You Inside

Staying Fit and Focused When Winter Weather Keeps You Inside

We all know what happens when the first big freeze sends you diving for the snooze button. Bypassing those morning runs won’t mean a lot when you only do it once or twice. But let it become a habit and before you know it, that fine summer figure will be a thing of the past.

5 Fitness Tech Things I Use Almost Daily

5 Fitness Tech Things I Use Almost Daily

I started this blog (or actually repurposed it from its A Social Tech Diva predecessor) as a nod to my newfound passion for fitness and health.  But the part I don’t talk about as much as the “Tech” part.  I’m a tech geek, working in the field of information technology for 16 years.  So as […]

Maintaining A Silk Press on Natural Curly/Kinky Hair

Ok so I wanted to write a blog post on struggles I’ve faced with maintaining my hair (particularly when it’s straightened) during workouts (especially the really sweaty ones).  But I didn’t get around to writing the post so instead I made it into a video 😊 

Bad Credit, Your Health, and How You Can Fix Both

Bad Credit, Your Health, and How You Can Fix Both

Bad credit and a load of unpaid debt may not only hurt your pockets but they can also impact your health.  Bad credit can get you denied things such as homes, cars, and credit cards. It can even make it difficult for you to rent or get a good job.  So it really can affect multiple aspects of […]

7 Hotel Tips for the Traveling Fitness Freak

7 Hotel Tips for the Traveling Fitness Freak

I recently took a week-long vacay with my family during my kids’ spring break.  Great times with fun outings and, of course, great eats!  But that’s what gets many of us during vacay….the eating!  Many times (and I’ve certainly done this a number of times) we travel and care less about what we are eating.

#22kill Push-Up Challenge!

I love fitness challenges!  Joining one in early 2015 actually helped me jumpstart my weight loss.  There’s just something about a challenge against others that helps with motivation. But this last challenge I participated in was a bit different for me because it wasn’t about losing weight, building muscle, or anything like that (although it […]

Less Cardio, More Body Weight & Strength Training

Less Cardio, More Body Weight & Strength Training

I’m finally in a place on my fitness journey where I do not desire to lose any more weight. Sure there are still a couple of problem areas I still have where I’d like to shed a bit more body fat.  But my main goal now is to stay within my ideal weight range while […]

How I Sculpt My Body and How You Can, Too!

How I Sculpt My Body and How You Can, Too!

I’m very happy about my fitness journey.  Although I was never extremely overweight I do feel my best now that I have in about 12 years (prior to having kids) since losing around 20 pounds. It’s like I have shed an entire layer or two of fat off of my entire body.  I’ve also been […]

Waist Trainers vs. Waist Trimmers: What’s the Difference?!

Waist Trainers vs. Waist Trimmers: What’s the Difference?!

Waist trainers vs. waist trimmers…what’s the difference?!  They can both help you shape your midsection and waistline through loss of inches.  They both are often worn during workouts and sometimes even under clothes to get a quick slimming effect.  Even I wondered about the difference!  So I did some research and tried both for myself.  […]
