As always, I am right on the ball with things!

Last week, my favorite athletic skirt company – SkirtSports – kicked off our #REALwomenmove campaign.


In the words of SkirtSports founder and CEO Nicole DeBoom – “We are surrounded by messages of intimidation and exclusiveness in the world of fitness. My #REALwomenmove goal is to stop the madness and show women that being fit is something we can all do, regardless of our size, shape or activity level”

And it’s true. I spent the past weekend at the Happiest Place on Earth – running at an event where 87% of the participants were women. And they were women of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. And it was awe-inspiring. Everyone putting in their best effort to get something done. And generally it was to get something done for themselves!

So here’s where you get to play along! Share with the community — spread the word! In your social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) post pictures of what #REALwomenmove means to you, along with the Hashtag of course!! Once we hit 5000 hashtags, someone is gonna win some goodies including the chance to train with Jenny Hadfield for 3 months!!

Now, I know that a lot of my friends participate in one photo-a-day challenge or another…and so we’ve got one for you this week! And, guess what?! That’s right. More prizes! Our friends at FitApproach will be giving away 5 entries to the upcoming Skirts Sports 13er which you can do virtually or in beautiful Louiville, CO. Each entry includes a $125 dollar gift certificate to Skirt Sports too so it’s really a no-lose proposition!

It isn’t always graceful!!!


Need a Lift?

23 May

I drink a lot of coffee. I mean, some days I drink A LOT of  coffee. Every now and then I’ll also have a Diet Coke. For the most part though, I’m a huge water drinker above anything else. And now I’ve found a brand new way to get a caffeine fix.

A few days ago, I got a package in the mail. And I LOVE getting packages.

This one was pretty neat — it contained a new form of energy! New LYFT® Energy Stir Sticks.  Now, these are advertised as having a ‘clean’ taste — so I was hopeful! I tend to prefer my beverages with no funky tastes or aftertaste (which is why I am currently having issues with Almond Milk and coconut water!) 


I received 2 stir sticks — and I could definitely see me actually buying these somewhere down the line.

The sticks come with a cover



You simply take it off and stir your drink for 20 seconds or so!





Then enjoy!!

Super portable, super easy to use and, as advertised, there really seems to be no odd taste at all. There’s *something* but it doesn’t interfere with enjoying my water!

Some additional information about the Pure LYFT caffeine sticks:

LYFT Energy Stir Sticks are a cool, new way to get all natural caffeine and stir energy into any beverage you’re drinking. The energy is derived from all natural green coffee bean extract and has vitamins A and B complex.  With 0 calories and a clean taste, it’s a perfect pre-workout boost, gets you over that 3pm slump, and is great during happy hour or to keep your energy up while you’re painting the town red!  

It’s also the perfect alternative to sugary energy drinks and shots. And if you’re ditching soda, LYFT gets the caffeine (equal to one tall coffee) you miss without the chemicals and calories.  You can easily stash it in your gym bag or even a small purse, making it an easy, lightweight, on-the-go option for energy. 

How to: Simply peel down the label completely off the whole stick and remove it. Stir the stick into any beverage for approximately 20 seconds. Toss the stick or keep it in your glass.
