Fit Friday: 5 Best Crunches for Summer Abs

Happy Friday! I am going to stay true to the brand and keep this post short and SIMPLE. Even though summer is in full swing I know there’s most of us still looking for a short cut or two that will give us a little more confidence in our swimsuit. There’s always room for improvement, right? I figured a quick run down on some of my favorite tried and true moves to slim those lower abs (aka the pooch) and obliques (aka muffin top) would be beneficial for most, especially this time of year. I am on my way to […]

Wellness Wednesday: 3 Simple Steps to Repair Summer Hair

Hello hump day! Summer is going by way too fast and I need it to slow down just a tad, how about you? With all that fun in the sun this summer I’m beginning to see the affects in my hair. I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling my hair is resembling broom’s bristles so I’ve been giving it some extra TLC lately to combat the dry, cracked feeling. The steps to repair your hair from heat and sun damage are so simple and straightforward that I needed to post about it and share with any fellow sufferers out there. […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part IV

A new week is upon us and with it the opportunity to spend it however we choose. I am going to stand on my soapbox for just one second, so bear with me. I feel like there is a lot of entitlement in the air lately and its something we should try to steer clear from. We are faced with choices that dictate our future more than we may even realize. If you choose to stay home binge watching Netflix and eating Cheetos, that is your right but also your choice. If you decide to work as many jobs as […]

Fit Friday: MSF Summertime Trail Mix

Friday is here! I am so ready for grilled pizza night and maybe even a movie? It has been incredible weather this week and I’m hoping to take advantage of it this weekend with some time at the beach and a pool party for a special little mermaid who turns one 🙂 I was thinking of healthy snacks that I could just grab and go since I will be teaching Pilates in the morning and going straight to an event afterwards. It’s hard to think of things that you don’t need to refrigerate or won’t melt to a gooey mess […]

Wellness Wednesday: Stretching Your Way to Healthy

Here we are mid week already and I don’t know about you but I wish I could hit pause for a quick sec and get ahead of my to-do list. When I have a couple of busy weeks back to back there is always a day where it hits me and I need a reset. Yesterday was one of those for me and I found myself just needing to slow down, incorporate some stretching and self-care. I felt so much better after just a five minute break on my mat stretching. It gave me the idea to share with you […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part III

Happy Monday friends, I hope you had a restful/productive weekend and are ready to take on another week. I’m ready to take you on a little adventure and continue with my island hopping series in Greece. After the hustle and bustle of the city on mainland Greece, it was nice to jet off to Mykonos where we had some serious rest and relaxation. It was refreshing to get a mini break from the “go go go” we experienced, because unlike Athens where there is an endless amount of historical sites to see, the islands get a little less hectic and […]

Fit Friday: MSF Salted Caramel Bites

Hello weekend! Even in the dead of summer vacation there is still something about Fridays, it’s honestly the best feeling to get to the end of a work week or weekdays and have the promise of a full weekend on the horizon. I have to say I’ve enjoyed my summer schedule which mostly consisted of Pilates and walking Finley, but there is something to be said about a work schedule and being able to depend on that consistency. I found myself busier than ever this week with appointments, meeting friends, and working on a multitude of projects. Whenever I get […]

Wellness Wednesday: The Skinny on Protein

Happy hump day! I hope you’re having a great week. Mine has been full of, you guessed it, Pilates. I am so close to concluding my teaching hours and loving every second of it. I had a few questions about protein and I thought doing a post would be beneficial to most of us. Protein has been a buzzword in the health and wellness industry and while it’s something we are all told to get more of, especially when working out and building muscle, the why and how is not always addressed. Well first things first, what is it? Protein […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part II

I’m back at it! I apologize for missing Fit Friday, technology is amazing and helpful most times but can be trying and frustrating once in awhile 😉 It’s Monday, the start of the workweek and a perfect time to pick up where I left off on my recap of our island hopping adventure in Greece. We left Athens to take a day trip to Delphi (you may want to pronounce it del-fy but the locals assured us it was pronounced del-fee). I didn’t know too much about Delphi, aside from the mythical references in movies and stories from history class. […]

Please Pardon Our Dust…

Happy Wellness Wednesday friends! I am bummed that I have to forgo two posts this week but I’ve been having a designer help with a site rebuild and there are technical difficulties (which they can explain better I’m sure) and it’s making the blog a little wacky in the process. I hope to be up and running in a few days, fingers crossed it’s not even that long because I miss posting already! In the meantime I will leave you with some simply fit reminders to use as needed throughout your week 🙂 Keep hydrated-proper hydration is not only important […]
