I'm fresh off a whirlwind weekend in Chicago where I taught 5 PiYo classes to groups of some amazing young and extremely talented dancers at the Regional Dance America MidAmerica conference.
After being out of town all weekend, today I hit the ground running. It would be easy to get frazzled, overwhelmed and be down right frantic about everything that needs to happen this week -- it's the last week of school AND my oldest daughter's high school graduation! What?! That is enough to throw any parent into the looney bin! So many emotions, so much excitement and yep, I'm sure there will be some tears.
Anyway, I digress - my point here is that being healthy is not just about the muscles in your arms or legs. It's also about being mentally prepared for the game of life. If we are not strong and centered mentally we will crash and burn...on a daily basis. This is why mind-body formats like PiYo and yoga are SO good for your mind, body and soul.
Check out this great article from Greatist.com for 6 STEPS TO BECOMING MORE MENTALLY FLEXIBLE.

Before you fire up the grill this weekend and reach for your standard go-to grilled meal: chicken, burgers, steak or if you're really feeling crazy, maybe you'll toss salmon in to the mix, step away from the grill and do something different!

This week I shared some of my best fitness and nutrition tips with FOX 59, during a new segment called "Fit on FOX".
In case you missed it, you can watch it here: http://bit.ly/1ljcxY8
And if you don't want to watch it, I'll give you my tips right now!
The first step is to MOVE MORE. For some that may mean taking an extra class during the week - but for others it may mean just taking a walk around the block. Movement is a MUST. In order to be healthy, you have to be active.
If you’re not a ‘gym person’, no problem, you can try an at home workout, like Insanity, P90X, 21 Day Fix or the upcoming PiYo. If you thrive on the group exercise scene - then check out your local gyms or YMCA’s. The bottom line is, the best workout program is one that you will DO!
You can't workout all the time, then eat like crap, so that's why it's important to EAT REAL FOOD. The less processed food you eat, the healthier you are. Read lables. Eat food with ingredients you can pronounce. Most of the time fewer ingredients it has - the better it is.
DRINK, DRINK , DRINK...water that is! Water is SO important for keeping your body hydrated and functioning properly. General rule of thumb: DIVIDE YOUR BODY WEIGHT IN HALF, THAT IS THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU NEED TO DRINK EACH DAY!
When working out, that amount will change. You need to drink water BEFORE, DURING and AFTER your workouts. Check out this great info from Greatist.com:
Not a fan of water? Spice up your water with fresh fruit, cucumbers or even high-grade essential oils.

It's time to kick your sweet tooth to the curb! My team is joining the Fed Up Challenge and would love for you to join us!
Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything - just a little willpower.
Researchers are discovering that refined, processed sugar has the same affects on your brain that cocaine does. Say what?! And did I mention that sugar is in nearly EVERYTHING? See the video below about Katie Couric's new moving, "Fed Up" - it is very eye-opening.

If you've ever been to one of my classes -- or have been around me in general, you know I ALWAYS have a bottle of SmartWater with me. Each bottle is 33 ounces of water -- and I drink about 5 of them each day - along with my unsweetened iced tea.
Staying hydrated is KEY to maintaining your health, especially if you are doing strenuous workouts.
If you suffer from headaches post-workouts you're dehydrated. When you're dehydrated, your body pulls liquid from your blood in order to try and hydrate itself. In addition to headaches this can also lead to muscle cramps and if you're severely dehydrated, your body can start shutting down. Not good, so let's avoid that at all costs, cool?
