Introducing “Fit Body: Core” from Flash Fit Clubs

Want a stronger core? Got 15 minutes?

Introducing the new Fit Body Series from Flash Fit Clubs. These workouts are stand-alone workouts focusing on one area of the body and can be done on their own, or in addition to the other Flash Fit Clubs programming. The first one released in this series is the Core workout. It’s a quick and effective workout that will target your abs, obliques, low back, and hips.  There are 3 rounds that take exactly 15 minutes to complete, and can be repeated if you have time. And it’s just $9.99.

Includes:

  • Real Time Instructional Workout Video
  • Printable PDF
  • Workout Timer

Most gyms are equipped with a TRX Suspension Trainer (you can ask the front desk if you’re not sure) so you can rock out your workout as a warm up or at the end of your usual session. If you’d like you’re own set of straps, you can get any model for 15% off on the TRX website.

Video Extras: See if you can name the theme song at the beginning (since I don’t have one my own yet), and stick around for the blooper reel at the end. You’d think filming a 20 second intro wouldn’t be that hard…

Recipe: Sweet Potato Fries. And a meal for your week!

Photo & Recipe from JamieOliver.com

Any time I cook, I try to be efficient AF. If we’re baking something in the oven, we’re also going to bake a side dish… because that’s less work. Since sweet potatoes were on sale for $.79 (holla!) at the grocery this week, I decided to try Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Sweet Potato Fries.

Life. Currently

It’s a big night. We leave for Hawaii for a family vacation in the morning. We live an hour away from the airport so we drove in to the city tonight. Our flight is at 6am (woof) and we have to be there to check in and check bags at 4:15, so the 3:30am wake up tomorrow morning is gonna be a rough one. It’s totally worth it though. I’m stoked to go to Hawaii, as I’ve never been to the big island before and am looking forward to sun on my skin for the next week. We’ve used our hotel points to book the first two nights, then we’re camping all around the island for the next four days, then using hotel points again for our final night (goodness knows we’ll all need showers by that point). All that being said, here’s what else is going on currently: [Read more…]

New Recipes in The Rotation (Kid Approved Too)

I’ve been experimenting with new recipes on Sundays (because it’s the most chill day of the week) to try new stuff and take my time. Here are few that I’ve tried lately that have made it into the regular rotation, with approval from Tristen and Robin. My bonus sons, ages 8 and 6, even gave this first one another two thumbs up the next day for lunch. Total score.

My Car Needs A Name!

I love my cars. They are more to me than just transportation. Lola, Abe, Mona, and Charli were all like best buds to me. If you’ve been around here for a while, you might remember when Charli, my ’08 Mazda, bit the dust last year on our road trip from San Diego to Canada. I wasn’t ready to replace her for a new (to me) car, but I had no choice.  Although every car I’ve owned had a name within the first week, I just couldn’t think of a name right away for my new Mazda. Nine months later… she still doesn’t have a name. That changes this week. [Read more…]

The following things are my jam right now…

Kentucky in 2 Weeks!

I’ll be spending a few days in Louisville in a couple weeks! Excited to teach a TRX course, see my people, and hopefully score some of the warm weather they’ve been having. See y’all soon! Who wants to go play in the park(s) with me?!

How to Love Your New Town

IMG_1537

Maybe your university is way across the country. Maybe your job just relocated you to a new city. Maybe you’ve moved to a different town for a relationship, to help out family, or just because you needed a change. Whatever the reason, getting used to a new place and starting all over can be equal parts exciting and stressful. You may love it, but you may not. Since so much of our health is affected by our happiness and stress levels, it’s important that we love (or at least like) where we live.

Since high school, I’ve moved cities and started over 6 times. It’s rough starting over, but it’s always worked out. I’m compiling my  “best practices” just in case you’re in the same boat. In no particular order, here’s how I came to be content in each new place I’ve lived in:

Workout Playlist Inspiration

large-2image via

Need some tunes for your next workout playlist? Here’s some new (and not-so-new) music to pick and choose from: Two for warm up music at the beginning, two for cool-down music at the end, a bunch of fun beats in the middle. Just a heads up: Some of these have explicit lyrics. Might wanna throw on the ol’ ear buds if you’re around sensitive ears. ; )

Looking for something else? All my playlists are on Spotify and are (usually) an hour long.

In other news: FitwithFlash now has its own Facebook page.

Podcasts That Are My Jam Right Now

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Tango and I take a 45 minute walk every day (unless the temperature is -25, then we take a 2 minute walk) and I listen to any number of podcasts. Podcasts have literally taken over from music in my life the past year and a half. I listen to them while walking, running, driving, and now during my workouts. There’s so much GOOD content out there and it’s way better than listening to any radio station. I pick up new ones all the time. Here are my latest faves I want y’all to know about: [Read more…]

Want to Feel/Look Better? Eat Like A Grown Up.

large

My past nutrition advice: Eat real food. Drink water more than you drink other things.

My new advice: Eat like a fucking grown up.

I’m tired of getting asked nutrition questions that are really just people wishing I would tell them it’s ok to eat crap. Stop. That’s like asking a rich person for financial advice and hoping they tell you buy shit all the time and don’t save or invest in anything. We all know better. We know deep down that at some point… we need to get our shit together. I also know that once we get into certain habits, we don’t always remember some of the basics. So, unless you’re really broke, are in college, or are 12 yeras old and in charge of buying your meals, here’s a quick reminder of how to eat like an adult: [Read more…]
