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.

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 […]
