Pregnancy: How to Make the Bad Stuff Better

By Kate Horney I’m 38 weeks pregnant, and I still feel great.  I can’t wait for the arrival of our first son, but I have to tell you- the last 9 months really haven’t been so bad.  Even my WORST pregnancy “symptoms” certainly haven’t lived up to the “Pregnancy Horror Stories” told by many… I attribute much of my enjoyable pregnancy to the fact that I’ve been able to stay active.  I know that ...[Read More]

Gluten-Free Fruit & Oatmeal Bars

healthy breakfast, healthy snacks, gluten free, fit moms

It’s a rainy morning here at the Pittman house today, just the kind of morning that gets me in the mood for baking things like these amazing gluten-free fruit & oatmeal bars.  It’s also been a super rainy summer here in Eastern NC, but I don’t mind. I *love* the rain! Perhaps because fall is looming around the corner, or maybe it’s the gloomy weather…whatever the case, I needed ...[Read More]

The No Gym Needed Workout

By Blair Lindler My name is Blair, I prioritize fitness and my health, I coach others with their fitness/health, and I have a confession to make: I do not have a gym membership. I think I may have heard an audible gasp?  Well, let me explain. The first reason why I do not have a gym membership: financial restrictions. I know there are at least a few readers out there who can understand this reason ...[Read More]

Metabolic Effect’s Quick Chili

By Blair Lindler Sunday’s always seem to creep up on me incredibly too fast – the weekends never seem to last as long as they should!  But one of the standing traditions in my life is food prep that gets me set up with “fast food” for the whole week that keeps me on track with my healthy diet and minimizes the need or desire for  junk food that does nothing positive for my body’s needs. This Sunda ...[Read More]

Become Your Goals

By Jennifer Pittman My journey in fitness and healthy living had a humble and, albeit, frustrating beginning.  Five years ago, my outlook on fitness was that of a person looking to lose weight and not gain health. All I cared about was the scale; which lead me into a dreadful and confusing relationship with my food and workouts. I thought that working out more and eating less would get me to my go ...[Read More]

Snack Time!

By Jennifer Pittman I love to snack! Who doesn’t, right? Living a fat loss lifestyle does not mean that you have to forego snacking; it’s actually the opposite. If you want to build lean muscle mass, burn more fat and keep unnecessary cravings and hunger at bay, the best thing you can do for your metabolism is eat small high protein snacks/meals throughout the day. Yes, you heard me right… Want to ...[Read More]

The Better Shoe for You

By Blair Lindler There is nothing more important in the world of fitness than choosing the right equipment.  Having the right tools is crucial to your success.  Often that means choosing the appropriate weight to use, or choosing the appropriate intensity.  But one thing that’s often overlooked is the equipment that supports and defends our body as we put it through some grueling and punishing wor ...[Read More]

On Facebook I mentioned that I was at Bikini Boot Camp doing some burpees, step-ups and squats this morning… and that Coach Jennifer had me (and the rest of the Bikini Boot Campers) SWEATING like CRAZY. After some great posts about burpees inducing delivery (I’d be all for that) and pregnancies where you could barely tie your own shoes, the crowd spoke…. YOU WANT TO SEE THE PREGN ...[Read More]

By Blair Lindler Healthy Lasagna Recipe?  Yes Please! I’m obessed with Pinterest.  No, really.  I love that website.  And I especially love it when I’m browsing and am surprised with a seemingly delicious and too-easy-to-be-true recipe.  This was the case when I found a recipe for Zucchini Lasagna.  Now, if you’ve got any experience with the recipes on Pinterest, you also know that they rarely com ...[Read More]
