Intermittent Fasting For Healing Inflammation In Your Gut

When you tell people that you are fasting, the immediate response is that you’re fasting for weight loss. Yes, weight loss can happen, since the window in which you are consuming calories is shortened; however, there are so many more benefits to intermittent fasting (IF) that are important to your overall health. One being improved gut health (which is SO important to me!). Just as sleep reenergizes your body’s cells and heals the heart (among so many other benefits!), it makes sense that rest for your digestive tract, would also have healing affects for your gut.

Propel Co:Labs Fitness Festival 2018 Kick-Off in Los Angeles Review

In August 2017, as some of you may know, I was lucky enough to attend the Propel Co:Labs Fitness Festival in Los Angeles.

I didn’t think the team at Propel could top last year’s festivities but they certainly did!

Self Care Gift Guide Ideas For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching us and I can’t wait to celebrate the day with my mom. Moms are just special people, aren’t they? Selfless. Giving. So giving that sometimes moms have such a hard time giving back to themselves. Self care can be a foreign concept to some. My mom doesn’t know the pleasure of a massage or doesn’t know what it’s like to pamper herself. I’m sure there are so many moms out there like that!

I was perusing some of my favorite brands online and came up with some of my favorite products that I thought would be great for the mom …
