As you know, I’m a traveling gypsy. Living on the road also includes lots of flights out of town. The hardest part of this lifestyle IS making time for exercise or activity. I know my life isn’t typical, but, I think many of you can relate to the fact that maybe having kids and running around, […]
Sooo I’ve been living in a van….. down by the river, for a good 8 months now. Alright, so it’s an RV and it’s not really by a River, but still. I spend a LOT of time working in a small space, and while it’s fun, I’ve been really neglecting my fitness, because I “don’t […]
Maybe you’ve noticed, or maybe you haven’t been around me long enough to notice, but I have made a huge, huge shift in the way I do fitness. I have started to really look inside and do what feels right to me. I used to be this hard-core, “no excuses” maniac, who didn’t believe that […]
I was recently made aware of a campaign by Viactiv Calcium Supplements, to #BeActiv #BeActiv means getting involved, getting moving and getting healthier.

Hi everyone! I’m Shannon, author of A Busy Girl’s Guide to Happy Eating and I KNOW it can be challenging to eat healthy when you’re short on time. And if you’re a busy person, you’re most likely short on time… all of the time. It is easy to question the importance of meal planning when […]

As you can imagine, in the fitness industry I love to check out all the latest research, learn about the human body, how it works, and how to make it perform OPTIMALLY. Ever since I struggled with metabolic damage and hormonal issues stemming for over-dieting and exercise I have been even MORE consumed with learning how […]
I don’t know if you have been following me for a few years or we just met, but last year was a crazy whirlwind of travel, speaking engagements, meetings and fun… BUT when it was all over.. I CRASHED….. hard. I actually haven’t talked about this, except for a few close friends and my husband… but […]
Thanks to Shannon from Skinny Sometimes for a great soup recipe! Yum!
I get emails with training and diet questions all the time. I also get this question (or version of it a lot) <<<Q: I used to be a size 18 and now am a size 2. I eat clean, weight train and do cardio, but I still have this loose skin. How can I tighten […]

Its been no secret that I have been on the road for the last 3 months. As fun and exciting as it has been, I am definitely glad to be home with my awesome husband and pups. I do get asked quite often how I am able to do it/afford it, etc. and I got […]
