Fitness is NEAT

Have you heard about this concept of N.E.A.T.?  Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis - basically how your body uses energy during any activity that isn’t a workout, eating or sleeping.  Of course, we burn energy during workouts, our body uses energy when processing our food during and after meals, and even when we're sleeping, mostly coming from our brain burning glucose.  But this concept of NEAT, how you can expend energy in all the in-between.  I find this so fascinating because I can spend the whole day inside my house cleaning, walking up and down the stairs at least 100x and by the...

Your goals don’t stop Feb 1…Keep your resolutions going

Staying on track with our goals! My philosophy for working out as adults is that we’re working out to be better at our daily life, not for a National Championship at the end of the year.

Summer Reads for Moms ⭐️

By Lisa Swander for LT Swimwear Before I had children, I thought summer meant more time for reading. “Beach Reads” is an entire section at Barnes and Noble, after all. A woman reclining in a deck chair, immersed in a novel while her children splash blissfully nearby, seemed to my twenty-something mind the consummate image of any true vacation. Then I had kids and learned those were lies. For moms, summer means an endless loop of water supervision, snack requests, and refereeing grouchy siblings. If we’re lucky, we can sneak in a page or two before someone needs a Band-Aid,...
