You Might Want To Rethink Your Protein Powder….

Taking protein powder on a regular basis is common for most people following a workout regime.  While I'm not a big protein shake person, I've been around many who are and wondered if taking a shake daily can really benefit your body?  I had a hunch most protein powders were bad news and I was right.  However, after doing some research, I found there are safe and healthy powders out there that can enhance your workouts and your muscle's response as well as benefit your overall health. When I … [Read more...]

Stress and It’s Effect on the Skin…

I've been going through probably one of the hardest issues of my life.  I'm not able to give any details for now because other people are involved but basically life has switched to survival mode for the last month.  While I'm trying hard to keep life normal for my girls, I have really slacked on several healthy habits and as a result, my skin is not good.  I thought it might be a very helpful post to tell you what I've learned about maintaining healthy skin and what happens when you … [Read more...]

Tummy Tightening Game Plan…

Some of you caught THIS post.  I talked a little bit about my tummy.  If you missed, let me sum it up.  I've had 2 babies and haven't done one single sit up in more then 6 mos.  I go to the gym 3x a week but now that I'm older, it's not enough.  My gut is not flabby, it's just out there.  My theory is that my stomach muscles have not even come close to tightening since baby #2 and what is popping out could be the result of loosey goosey muscles.  There's fat too but having stretched out muscles … [Read more...]

I've mentioned before about my constant effort for achieving balance in my life.  I tend to focus on one thing and ditch the rest.  The rest mainly being exercise!  This has been a long winter with inconsistent exercise so I've got my work cut out for me! I'm hoping by sharing … [Read more...]

Peak 8 fitness…..

Exercise.....I have a love hate relationship with it.  I've maintained my weight since I was around 16 by doing some sort of cardio for 30 minutes 3x a week.  If I stopped my routine, it didn't take long for me to gain that 10lbs I had been keeping at bay.  When I had my first baby I continued my routine at home after buying a treadmill.  After I finished breast feeding I quickly gained the dreaded 10lbs even with my 30 minutes of brisk walking 3x a week.  So, I started counting calories.  It … [Read more...]
