I’ve lost track of how many races I’ve done – 5kms, 10kms, half marathons & more. I’m not telling you this to brag (seriously, my times are nothing to write home about). I’m telling you this because I’ve had the chance to experiment with what eat before and during long runs. Whether or not you’re a runner, these tips will help you get through your workouts and leave you feeling amazing all day.
Miranda Kerr. Kate Beckinsale. Cameron Diaz. Just to name a few of the hottest women of our time. Other than being bombshells, they all have one thing in common. They all do HIIT workouts.
You’ve heard of HIIT workouts right? High Intensity Interval Training workouts have been a secret weapon for so many celebrity Personal Trainers until just a few years ago. Now that it’s gaining popularity, people are starting to realize (and live) the benefits of this completely different kind of workout. I used to be an hours-in-the-gym kinda gal without seeing the results that I really wanted. It wasn’t until I started to do HIIT workouts that my body really started to transform.
Meet Britt. I know, stunning right? And she’s one of those people that who, once you get to know her, becomes more and more beautiful too. She’s a Mama of a gorgeous toddler, with another baby girl on the way and is my go-to person for all things baby & wellness related. Her little one is just a few months older than Henry so she does all the baby-related research (and testing 😉 ) and I just follow along a few months later. It’s the perfect relationship really.
When I was pregnant, she helped and supported me so much both mentally and physically. Britt is a yoga teacher with a certification in prenatal yoga so I was super lucky to have her at my fingertips. I couldn’t keep all of her delicious advice and information to myself, so I thought we’d do an interview to spread the love 🙂

Happy New Year! I love the start of a brand new year; a clean slate where goals and intentions are set and people are buzzing with happy vibes. Not surprisingly, the most popular resolutions set this year have been around losing weight, working out more, and eating a more balanced diet. Whatever your New Years resolution, we can all use a little help and encouragement now and again. And depending on what they are, sometimes technology can be a bit more reliable than friends and family. So I’m sharing my TOP FIVE FREE health & fitness apps to keep you on track with your 2017 goals.
Happy holidays! Like me, you’re probably coming off of the Christmas high of mulled wine and baked treats. And today, we get to let out a huge sigh of holiday relief. Ahhhhhhhhh.
As much as I love Christmas and the festivities leading up to it, I’ve always loved Boxing Day just as much. It’s a day to unwind, sleep in, and spend those gift cards you’ve just received! My absolute favourite thing to do on Boxing Day is to cozy up in my comfies and shop online all damn day and I would love if you joined me.
This Boxing Day, I’m focusing on activewear. A new pair of tights or runners are the greatest motivators to sticking to your fitness goals. Perhaps you have some fitness goals you’re gearing up for in the New Year or have worked your ass off this year and want to treat yourself to a little something. Whatever your situation, new activewear is always a great idea 😉
Here are a few of my favourite picks that are seriously discounted for us deal-seekers today. Happy surfing!
I’d love to know what you ended up with today (hopefully a little treat for yourself?)
Love, peace & wearing activewear all day everyday
