{Guest Post} How to Choose the Perfect Gym


Hey everyone! My name is Stacie from SimplySouthernStacie. I’m so excited to be able to share this guest post with you today while Heather is off having fun on vacation. Heather’s blog was one of the first blogs I discovered when I started blogging back in October (almost a year now –where has the time gone?), so I was so honored when she asked me to write a guest blog for her today (editor’s note: she’s fabulous; make sure you {Read More}

Workout Recap


Being that yesterday was too special of a day to not post about (check it out here if you missed it!), that meant my weekly workout recap got pushed back. Last week was full of great workouts, again. I’m lucky that things have been going well for me. Teaching Bodysculpt and Interval sculpt gives me two days of strength training/circuit workouts, and I fill in the remaining days with whatever I’m feeling. Typically, it’s running, but not always.

I haven’t joined in with Ms. Spoons in quite some time, but today is your lucky day to hear all the ramblings going on in my head. Wow! all of your thoughts, comments, tweets, everything on yesterday’s posts were amazing. I was nervous posting it, and it sat in my drafts for a while, but I’m glad I hit publish! We leave for vacation on Saturday morning and I’m not really ready. I made a huge dent in the to {Read More}

Please, don’t call me “skinny”


When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be the skinny one. When I was in high school, I loved when people called me skinny. In college, I went to the gym to make sure I didn’t gain the dreaded “Freshman 15” and to remain, in a sense, on the skinnier side. Now? I hate being called skinny. What exactly do you get for being skinny? Honestly, nothing, other than probably having great genetics. I haven’t always been this {Read More}
