  • Breathe Like THIS To Reduce Belly Fat

    Sam-108_2-200x300Is the way you breathe most of the day making your fat? Although this may sound absurd to many people, the fact is that STRESS holds fat on our body; especially the belly. And breathing optimally is the quickest and most effective way to reduce stress hormones in our bodies.

    So the way you breathe is not MAKING you fat, but the way in which you breathe DEEPLY can reduce the hormones that hold on to belly fat.

    I get it. If you have been struggling with hundreds of crunches, reducing your carbs to a minimum and thinking that is THE way to your flat belly and killer abs, then today’s tip may just seem too… easy. Like too easy to even consider. But keep reading…

    I am not saying this should be your only practice if the result you wanna see are 6-pack abs. BUT, this tip IS a surefire way to reduce the stress hormone, cortisol, that DOES have a role in holding-on to that extra pudge around your midsection.

    Lower the levels of excessive cortisol in your body with deep breathing and you lower the hormones linked to belly fat. So next time you are feeling stressed out, chill out. I know, easier said than done. But when we understand all the benefits of reducing excessive stress in our bodies it sure can be a powerful motivator to take the time to slow down and tune in. This guided breathing exercise will help you do just that. (more…)

  • Got Sore Muscles?

    IMG_4168Confession: I love the feeling of sore muscles. Especially my glutes and abs. I love bending down and feeling my body sweetly remind me that I have been active and that I have awoken and toned my muscles and that they are alive and happy too.

    I mean, a muscle that is NOT getting to work and strengthen is a very sad muscle. That’s like a dog that doesn’t get to play fetch. It’s a muscle’s birthright to move, tone and support.

    What I don’t like is being so sore that I can’t get up and down a few stairs without being in pain and looking ridiculous.

    Can you relate?

    I am going to share with you what it does NOT mean if you are sore. As well as what it DOES mean, what you should NOT do, and what you SHOULD do if you are sore. Here we go: (more…)

  • Superfoods For A Super Fit Body

    tiff website-0205It has been said that our physique is produced 70-80% in the kitchen and the remainder from our workouts. And I can honestly say that what we put into our mouths does make a huge impact not only on our HOW we look, but also on how we FEEL and how our body performs.

    Feed your body nourishing food that the body can digest and burn efficiently and you will feel clear, your workouts will feel energized and your yoga body will bend with more ease.

    I am an advocate of eating clean and if you know me, you know I greatly appreciate local and organic food too. I am not vegan, I am not gluten free. I am not a raw foodist. But I do enjoy real food and I know my body thrives from them too.

    Here are some superfoods that are certain to help your body look good, feel good and move powerfully too: (more…)

  • Vegan Mint Soursop Ice Cream, Oh My!

    soursop_icecreamA friend brought me 2 big sour sop fruits the other day! I gave one to my dear friend who gets just as giddy as I do over this fruit, and kept one for myself. So fun to share things we know lights others up! And this is one of those food that just looking at it makes me happy.

    That leads me to today’s recipe I wanna share with YOU. Vegan Sour Sop Ice Cream with mint and vanilla goodness.

  • Upper Body, Core & Cardio Workout You Can Do At Home

    side plank with hand weightThis summer we went to the mainland for a little family vacation. I packed my yoga mat, a jump rope, my interval timer and a resistance loop, knowing I would be set to enjoy tons of diversity and rock all my workouts while being gone for 2 full weeks. And I did!

    Which was awesome because nobody likes the feeling of coming home from vacation in a frumpy body that ate more food than normal and moved less than regularly, just because it was out of it’s natural habitat.

    I came home feeling fabulous because I worked out and/or practiced yoga almost daily. Today I am going to share with you one of the workouts I did at my mother-in-laws house. This workout targets the upper body and gets the heart pumping.

  • Exactly HOW To Get Consistent With Your Fitness

    happy, fit confident bodyYou have heard me say this time and time again, “Consistency is the KEY to a workout and/or yoga practice that is going to really change your life and transform your body.” I KNOW this to be true, I know this as truth in the fibers and cells of my being.

    If you read the blog post I wrote a year ago, “A Simple Fitness Tip That Drastically Changed My Life” you know that I use to have a belief that if I didn’t have 60 or 90 minutes a day to do my yoga, then it wasn’t worth it anyways. OMG, what a horrible lie I was telling myself. And when I realized I had this belief I started committing to just 20 minutes a day and BAMB, the results I was feeling in my body came quick because I was now showing up daily!

    You will reap MORE benefits in your life and in your body by working out 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week than you would showing up only one day a week for an 80 minute practice. This is true! It is the things we do over and over again that make up who we are and that shape the person we are.

    But HOW does one get consistent? I am going to help you with that today! (more…)
