What’s Beautiful


As part of being a FitFluential ambassador, I’m in a campaign with Under Armour to promote their What’s Beautiful challenge.


It’s for women who want to push past where they have been before…to put a goal out to the world and go after it in a big way. But they’re also opening up their site to teams of women who want to complete goals together. You can post your goals and challenges online, set up a profile, and there’s even a chance to win Under Armour gear as you work towards your goals.

You can join the challenge here, there’s lot of support and lovely ladies there…or you can join a team (here’s mine – geared to sticking to nutrition).

I love that Under Armour views beauty in terms of character – not outward appearance.

Under Armour Campaign

As part of this campaign, Under Armour sent me some goodies…I can’t wait to wear those shoes. The leopard print is kind of awesome! I also joined the challenge myself, you can find me here!

Beauty is so much more than the outward and it’s refreshing to see businesses’ that show that it’s character that makes people beautiful.


Never Give Up

Tell me what character quality you find most beautiful? Are you going to join the What’s Beautiful project?

Recently, we broke into a box of Continue reading »

Silent 10 Workout


It’s hard to get your workout in when you’re traveling (speaking from personal experience). I usually end up getting out at gas stations and doing some stretches, lunges, wall pushups and calf raises…whatever I can, to get my body moving. Sitting all day is just not cool. Continue reading »

Chocolate on Whole Wheat Toast


Chocolate on Toast

EatMore Chocolate Bars


EatMore Square Recipe

One of my Dad’s favourite chocolate bars is the EatMore bar, but what some people don’t realize is that you can make the exact same chocolate bar in your kitchen and it’ll taste almost exactly the same. My Daddy is obsessed with these.

As we’ve been traveling this past week, I’ve had more Continue reading »
