Hot Links on the Web

Hey everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’ve got something a little different for y’all today. To begin with, I’ve always wanted to call you all “y’all”, so thanks for letting me get that out. It won’t happen again 😉 But today I’m going to share some great links I’ve found from around the web this past […]

GUEST POST – The Paleo Diet Won’t Make You Healthy

Hey everyone! Today I’ve got a great guest post from a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador, Sara! I often get people asking me my thoughts about the Paleo diet, and while I have my opinions, it’s not something I’ve ever really done so I can’t talk a whole lot about it besides what the research says. Sara […]

Fall Off the Wagon? Five Tips for Getting Back on Track

Hello friends! It’s a beautiful, sunny, chilly morning here in Vancouver. I’m feeling good because for the first time in about two weeks I slept in past 7! I had my alarm set for 6:20 so I could make it to a 7:00 spin class but today my body just said NO so I decided […]

Krokodile Pear: New Juice on the Block

Meat and Nuts

Salmon, beef picadillo, an egg, and hazelnuts. Canned tuna and walnuts. A chicken thigh and walnuts. Chicken breast and pecans.

If you recall from this post a little less than […]

How Much Protein Do You Really Need, Bro?

9 days until my triathlon. To say I’m freaking out would be an understatement. To say I enjoy swimming after all the hours I’ve spent in the pool these last few months would be a huge lie. But as much as I’m looking forward to getting this thing done and over with so I can […]

30 Days of Food Combining, Less Instagram, & More Zen

I met with a holistic nutritionist yesterday. “But Ariana, aren’t you a Personal Trainer?” Why yes, yes I am. “And didn’t you just take a course to be certified as a Nutrition and Weight Loss Specialist?” I sure did. But every now and then you need to ask for help, even when you’re fairly knowledgeable […]
