You know what?

I don’t hate Mondays.

Like really- I haven’t hated them for years.

Actually, quite the contrary: I F-ing love ‘um.

Every Monday I log on to Instagram // FB & I see a quote about how Mondays suck ass.

I mean…if you absolutely hate Mondays more than life itself, then maybe examine why.

Is it because of your profession? Because it’s a new week? Because you can’t sleep-in? Because of a person you have to see?

Personally it’s a fresh start, a day to rock, a night to feel like I’ve been super productive, & ultimately a day to clean the slate & just freaking kill it.

I love my job— & if I didn’t love it, I’d find something else to invest my time in. It’s that easy.

Because at the end of the day who wants to absolutely dread a day of the week?

I mean…technically the day comes 52 times a year…so maybe find a reason to kinda, sort of like Mondays. Pick up a hobby, hang with your GF’s, or take a walk on the beach every Monday so you have something to look forward to.

So. What’s your thoughts on Monday? Tell, tell.

Oh! & happy St. Patty’s Day, X L

Q & A Sesh: Part III

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Here’s the third week’s post of a Q & A ; ).

I’m going to extend this to six weeks ( instead of four ), so if you have any other questions, ask them here!

1.} Tysha asked:

Hi : ). I have recently made the decision to commit to a healthy lifestyle (thanks to your blog!). I would like to learn a little more about the basics of nutrition, what the body needs, why that is and the most efficient way to obtain these nutrients. Are there any books/websites that you would recommend for the best information?

Also, I’ve found that I usually get bored with a workout quite easily, so I have been switching it up based on what I feel like doing that day. Are there any tips you could offer to keep motivated? Thanks!

Three women/authors that have taught me how to eat: Bethenny Frankel, Kimberly Snyder, & The Skinny Bitch girls.

I switch up my workouts weekly. One week I’ll do Pilates, heavy weights, running, & yoga. And the next week I’ll do asymmetric weights, the Elliptical, hiking, & barre classes. Switching it up is vital— you want to be constantly surprising your body. Don’t let your bod know what to expect. Hope that helps babe!

2.} Lydia asked:

Your blog is incredibly inspiring and so are you! I would love to know tips about how to get into blogging! Also, what is your sign??

Hi Lydia! All my blogging tips can be found here. I’ve also started a blog consulting & designed company called Blog-Doo. We ( << Erica & I ) basically re-vamp blogs or build blogs/websites.

My sign: Gemini. I couldn’t be more of a Gemini. I’m totally the sign of the twins AKA two personality/bi-polar…JK. But when I’m home, I’m a true blue homebody but when I’m out, I’m a social butterfly.

3.} Hope asked:

Random Q: but how tall are you? Just for comparison with all the fashion posts you do!

I’m 5’7 : ).

4.} Anon asked:

Can you please do a ‘where to start’ post? For someone who is new to clean eating and daily exercise? Also is it a good idea to cut bread/carbs out altogether straight away?

I would start with thirty minutes of exercise every day. I know every day sounds extreme but most likely you’ll miss one or two, so setting an every day goal is perf. Move up to forty five minutes after three weeks.

For clean eating, see below for some food options. Portion control is EVERYTHING ( a post on that found here ). I would drink at least three liters of water a day, get a lot of sleep, & drink veggie juice in the mornings. If you can’t make it yourself, I recommend Suja- it’s cold pressed & they have an amazing juice cleanse that helps kickstart healthy eating!

5.} Kayla asked:

What is the lunch or dinner you eat most often? What is your go-to ab routine (exercises please!)? Thanks, Lauryn! Can’t wait for the looooong Q & A post : ).

I’m a snacker. I real, real snacker. I graze like a sheep. For lunch & dinner I love: eggs, quinoa, avocado ( on everything ), this salad ( my fav, lately ), berries, homemade green juice, fresh hummus, cabbage salads, Ezekiel toast, unsalted nuts, pineapple wedges, sunflower seed butter, garlic cloves ( ya, I eat um like apples ), arugula on anything, kiwi slices, oysters, tabbouleh, sprouted rice cakes, kale salad, green smoothies, Suja Juice, bananas dipped in almond butter, dark chocolate, &/or anything from Tender Greens ( << their ‘Happy Vegan‘ salad is my lover ). I’m not big on meat & dairy. It kinda grosses me out. For dessert, I’m lovvvvvving this little sugar mama lately.

The best quick snack in my opinion is an apple. Yup. An apple. Eating one makes me realize if I’m Hungry Mungry or not.

As far as my whole ab routine, it will be found in my book ( pre-order here )! Stay tuned.

—————

C’est fini!

Ok, so do you guys like this segment or is it boring? Should I have it every week? Is six weeks enough? Longer? Shorter?

Geez- I’m like totally Quincy Question over here, so I’ll stop!

Why Stretching Your Feet & Toes is Muy Importante

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

If you know anything about me, you know I love all-natural health practices.

And that’s why I love holistic health practitioner/physical therapist, Nic Bartolotta.

Quick back story: in my teens I was involved in a car accident that left me lateral whip lash down down the right side of my neck. For years after I aggressively cracked it ( AKA adjusted myself ).

And like, when I say I cracked my neck, I’m talking like balls to the walls-crazy-cracking sounds.

Anyway fast forward a few years…my neck still felt like shit.

But not only did my neck feel like shit- my feet ( << yes FEET! ) were absolutely killing me. Why? I had developed something called Plantar Fasciitis.

Ya. Fun times, fun times.

Side note: ok, honestly Plantar Fasciitis sounds way grosser than it really is. Basically it’s a severe, gnarly pain in the arch of the foot. It’s caused by overuse of the foot. Um…ya, I was standing too much.

SO. Then I met Nic and uh, he fixed the pain in my neck & feet.

Ya. That simple. Through resistance stretching ( << a holistic health practice ) & the DCT ProFlex, my neck & feet pain went buh-bye. Immediately. ASAP. Just like that.

Pretty rad, right?

So anyway, I’ve interviewed Nic on my neck pain here, but I wanted to interview him again on foot pain. Feet/toes isn’t exactly a regular topic of convo & you know me, I LOVE to talk about stuff no one talks about ; )!

Ok, so get the deets on the feetsies & toesies below ( << because no one wants those crocked, ugly feet/toes when they’re older— take care of your foundation!!! ):

+ Re-introduce yourself and explain what you do:

Nic Bartolotta: My name is Nic Bartolotta and I’m a licensed Physical Therapist and a Holistic Health Practitioner. Over the past thirteen years I’ve developed a unique system of bodywork & corrective exercise called Dynamic Contraction Technique ( DCT ). Recently I patented a device called the DCT ProFlex that can be used to dramatically increase flexibility and strength of the lower legs and feet. I work with people of all fitness levels and with many different injuries to resolve their problems and achieve levels of performance previously unattainable.

+ What makes this product unique?

NB: There is nothing quite like the DCT ProFlex. The way that the device fastens to your foot allows for full and complete range of motion of your ankle and the length of the device provides the leverage needed to actively stretch all the muscle & fascia of your lower leg and foot.

+ Why is it important to stretch your toes and feet? I mean, most people would think this is weird ( << after doing this though, I’m addicted!).

NB: Our feet are the foundation of our bodies! If your feet are out of alignment then your entire body will be out of position causing problems as far away from your feet as your shoulder or even your neck. Aside from affecting your posture, tension in your feet and toes can cause severe pain in the bottom of your feet called ‘Plantar Fasciitis.’ This is a situation where the bottom of your foot gets so short and tight that every time you wake up and take your first step in the morning it tears and then swells up. It can be nagging and take forever to heal. With the ProFlex you can very quickly lengthen the fascia on the bottom of your feet and resolve the root cause of the problem.

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

+ What else can this tool help with?

NB: The ProFlex can immediately remove tension that has taken years to form in the body. The way it does this is by using the principals of DCT which use resistance to actively pull the tension out of your muscles. All you have to do is use the leverage that the ProFlex provides to overpower your own muscles contraction and pull it into an active stretch. This type of ‘resistance stretching‘ is the most effective form of stretching because it builds strength & range of motion at the same time. Which means you can become more flexible and correct your posture simultaneously! It’s like yoga & Pilates combined only it works faster and the results last longer!

+ If someone is interested in learning more about the DCT Proflex, what should they do?

NB: We’re currently doing an amazing experiment with something called crowdfunding where we are building awareness around the product to spread a message about the importance of preventative health care & proactive wellness programs. We believe that the ProFlex gives people an opportunity to learn how to take care of themselves & avoid serious injuries in the future.

All we’re asking is for people to take a moment to check out our campaign video. If it makes sense to either contribute or just simply share it with someone you think might benefit from the product, then please do so. You can find more information here.

Lastly, if you’re in the LA area we are having a campaign launch party hosted by House of Fitness & sponsored by Suja Juice tomorrow Saturday, September 28th to celebrate the DCT ProFlex. The event runs from 12 pm-4 pm and we’ll be raffling off some great prizes, such as free DCT sessions, a month gym membership, & a three day Suja Juice cleanse! Location: 4130 Sepulveda Blvd., Suite E, Los Angeles, CA. 90045.

+ Nic works in Los Angeles & San Diego. To book an appointment with him, e-mail: Nic@HarmonixHealth.com. Mention TSConf for $50 dollars off your first session.

OMFG.

I pulled my neck SO bad on Friday.

Like, I went to change lanes on the freeway & literally couldn’t turn my head.

Similar to one big stiffy.

So because of the pain, I decided to take Saturday & Sunday off to rest.

But today I decided to peel my lazy ass out of bed to work out. Afterwards I went for an overdue, much needed medical massage ( << more on this lil secret later ).

Ok, & guess what? Supposedly rest isn’t always ‘so good’ for you.

I spoke with a trainer, nutritionist, & the masseuse today and they all were separately consistant on their opinion: you need to move- not rest.

Laying around with a muscle ache= no blood circulation. Most of the time to heal the aching muscle(s), movement is essential.

If your ankles are swollen, walk around. If you’re neck hurts do exercises that are the opposite of compression ( so say no to push-ups! ).

And duh, after my workout/massage/green juice, I felt ten times better.

Because movement is key.

In other news…I got a rice cooker. Carly’s post was total inspo for me to cook quinoa from home.

Am I turning into an old lady?

Just sayin’.
