I'm a former teacher, a NASM certified personal trainer, and ACE certified group fitness instructor. I teach PIYO, BODYPUMP, and INSANITY. I'm married with three kids and live in Colorado, where I am loving the mountains and fresh air! I have a blog where I like to share recipes, my experiences with various fitness programs, and other aspects of living a healthy life with my family. Feel free to check it out at bephoenixfit.com
This is such a great yoga mat! Flexible, soft, yet sturdy enough to withstand many yoga sessions. Didn't have any issues with slipping. The color is calming and the design is beautiful. Lightweight and easy to carry to class. Definitely recommend!
This body butter is one of my new favorite lotions. It's like putting a little bit of a tropical beach into a little tub! It spreads on well, not greasy, but moisturizing enough for my dry skin as I live in a very dry climate at a high altitude. The scent is amazing. Highly recommend!
This vodka can add a kick to just about any drink! I grabbed a bottle at my local liquor store and mixed with a juice blend for some summer fun. For a low cal option, it pairs great with La Croix or similar flavored sparkling water. Can't wait to try more recipes for the summer!
This is my go-to whenever I have a headache that won't go away, or inflammation and soreness. As I hit the gym pretty hard and often, I sometimes have joint and muscle pain that needs extra attention. Advil is quick and effective, and always affordable.
I was actually pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the confetti flavor mug cake! I wasn't sure if it would be good or not, but it was a tasty treat at the end of the day. I tried it with water (yum), tried it with water and chopped strawberries (double yum), and tried it with vanilla creamer and strawberries (not so yum). There probably isn't a recipe that will be as good as my Mema's cakes, but for a quick treat at the end of the day (that I don't have to share with my kids if I don't want to), this is a pretty good option.
As a fitness instructor and runner, I take sports bras very seriously. This sports bra is one of my all-time favorites. It keeps my girls in place during a workout session, even with high impact. And I really love that it doesn't give me uniboob or back pain when I wear it! Very comfortable and keeps me looking and feeling good.
Loving my free sample of #KenraBrightening that I got from @Influenster - my hair is so bright and not brassy anymore! Love the smell, love how soft it makes my hair feel. Even though my hair is fine and thin, it didn't weigh it down. I want to use the whole line of products so my hair stays this color!
These are my family's go-to snack when we want something salty. They are filling, and have the perfect amount of salt. I can easily toss some into a snack bag for the kids to take to school for a snack or in lunches.
I used match.com when I was dating after my divorce, and it worked fairly well for me. Unfortunately there were plenty of guys who contacted me, who I weren't interested in. I ended up having better luck using a free app that only allowed conversation between people with mutual interest. Match is ok, but definitely wasn't the best one for me.
This soap is SO good for my skin during winter months. The air in my state is very dry and cold, and I need something that will help to keep my skin moisturized so it doesn't crack. Dove Winter Care Soap is the perfect solution!
