Workout Tools you never thought of!

2015-08-02 20.14.43

It’s no secret, I have been living on the road for the past year, and my life and workouts have changed!

Just two months ago, my husband and I took the RV and moved semi-permanently to Utah, to live with Grandma on her farm and help her with her animals. Oh, at the same time, I also purchased a BRAND NEW phones, after destroying mine on a cruise, by leaving it on a deck chair in the heat and dropping it. (womp, womp, womp)

Even though, now we are in a permanent location, we are are 20 miles from a gym, and it’s just not all that time or fuel-efficient to drive to one every day.

Needless to say, I have no problem with creativity; and the mountains, hills, trails and outdoor scenery of Southern Utah, can’t be beat.

I realized, that many of you may have some of the same struggles.

I always grew up in a city or suburb and it literally never occurred to me that someone couldn’t get to the gym.

However, being in this lifestyle for the past year, not only do I see how someone couldn’t but also how they may not WANT to!!

I’m going to give you a few of my new “Active Lifestyle” Tips and Workouts.

1. Trail Running or Hiking: I LOVE getting out and exploring, especially at sunset. I keep my phone on me at all times and have downloaded a cool app that tracks where I am on GPS (great safety feature too!), my distance, and speed.

Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 is a screen protector that dramatically improves protection against drops, and I can say; that is definitely the kind of peace of mind I need with my phone out there on the rocks and rough ground.

I tend to start with a half a mile jog up our hill, then I like to play games with myself by walking until I am breathing normal again, then I’ll find a tree out in the distance and jog until I reach it, then walk again.

It’s a fun way to challenge myself, enjoy the scenery and competed with my progress from before.

Sometimes, I will switch up the route as well, or just track my miles to see if I can add a little distance.

You can search for a running app in your app store and do the same!

2. Biking: I haven’t been on a bike for over ten years, but I went out and bought a cute little cruiser.

Our mail box is over half a mile away and that was the first practical reason for the bike. (my justification)

Then I realized, what a fun evening activity it could be, and it was also a great alternative to exercise when the horse stepped on my toe and I couldn’t walk!!

I use my app on my bike rides, and love to make different routes, but have you ever put your phone in your pocket and then sat down?


In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs.

Because there are some good hills in the area, I generally try to find a route where I have 2-4 really hard pushes up hill (but that also includes 2-4 downhill coasts… wheeee!!) This is fun, because my legs get a totally different burn than the hikes and I feel more accomplished because I can cover twice as much ground on the bike! ha!

3. YardWork: Ha! not what you expected was it?

Honestly, I have gotten leaner and more toned from the yard work that from anything else in a long time!!

Handling a shovel, a rake and, chopping tree branches works my shoulders and core like nothing else!

It honestly can be boring and since I’m a huge multi-tasker, I tend to use my weed pulling, horse-poop-picking, and ground raking time as my personal development time.

I listen to business podcasts or my collection of audible books. It helps me get through the grit and dirt, and I feel like I learned something as well.

Being out with the rocks, dirt and animals, I’m glad that my phone is protected and I know that Gorilla Glass 4 is the toughest cover glass yet.

I’m pretty confident about my new routine sustaining my body and health and also loving this new lifestyle!

Always in Beta Lifestyle with New Balance


Consideration was provided by New Balance  

I’ve always been inspired by women with stories of challenge and triumph. One of my first and favorite books I ever read was called, “Don’t You Dare Give Up,” a book about a gymnast who was paralyzed doing the sport she loved, but out of her tragedy she reinvented herself, and continued to inspire and work in other ways. I am a student of personal development. I am constantly looking to improve my lifestyle in so many ways, and always looking for something that can make just that 1% change. I am “always in beta.”

“Always in Beta. Beta is a state of relentless improvement. Where there is no finish line to what’s possible. We dream. We wake up. And improve upon yesterday.”

I am teaming up with New Balance to promote women who also live the “Always in Beta” Lifestyle. The new Fall Catalog is packed with awesome new gear, but also lots of women’s stories that will inspire you, push you, and motivate you!


If you download the Blippar App, you can Blipp the page to see awesome content, videos and get to know the NB Women and their stories in a really cool way!   I was obsessed with this new collection, especially the colors and feel of the NB Ice Collection!   The contrast of the blues and bright yellows makes me feel unstoppable!!


The Capris have an awesome, wide and flattering waistband and feel amazing on my skin.  


Let’s talk bras. Let’s get real here, sports bras are my best friend, but I don’t always like how they can smash everything and make me look like I wasted $4000 on a boob job (hahaha) The “Tenderly Obsessive” bra is seriously genius. I need one for every day of the week.


First, it’s cute and matches my hot shorts. (Bonus) There is a soft, shaped, cup on each side, with a nice bit of padding for smoothness (but not those awful removable pads that bunch up and you can never fit back in!!) It’s comfortable, stylish and gives great support and lift. #winner Speaking of shorts. I’ve never been a shorts kind of girl. Mostly because I was too worried about things being squeezed and creating more bulges and bumps than necessary. The Premium Performance Hot Shorts are so flattering, with the wide waistband, great coverage, and they stay put when running or stretching.


Last, it’s fall, and I LOVE the weather and cozy, soft sweaters, jackets and windbreakers. New Balance nailed it with the Heat En Route Jacket; it’s gorgeous, comfy, has the fun thumbholes that I love and feels so soft!


I’m so excited for fall hiking, long walks, trail running and pumpkin lattes and of course, Always Living in Beta. What are you excited for this fall and what pushes you to always live the Beta Lifestyle?     WE THE WOMEN of New Balance have created this collection of fitness apparel and footwear inspired by our shared LOVE OF SPORT, drive to discover what’s next, and passion for WHAT’S POSSIBLE. Welcome to NB WOMEN where every tight fits right, every layer works hard, and every shoes lets you moved with perfect freedom. Take a look and find WHAT YOU LOVE.  


Walking Whenever Wherever #walkoutwednesdays


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, it’s hard to find the time to get daily consistent exercise.

I started using the Omron Activity Tracker about 6 weeks ago, and it has been really fun to keep track of what I actually am doing, instead of feeling like a loser for not going to the gym.


For instance: yesterday, was a busy, busy, busy busy, day going to a conference. I had to walk a LOT but didn’t seem like “enough”.

I was bummed about not going to the gym during the conference, but guess what?!?!

I walked over 5 MILES!! and climbed a BUNCH of stairs!!


It was so awesome to see that, so instead of being upset about not doing anything, I realized I did a lot!!

In honor of the Omron “Walk Out Wednesday” campaign, a friend and I also decided to talk a walk BEFORE the madness began this morning and we felt so good about it!



This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Omron. The opinions and text are all mine.

Walk Out Wednesdays


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 have a gym or space”

Then my trainer head was like

“WHOA NELLY!! Stop right there! You have all you need with your shoes and two legs”

However, have I mentioned, I hate running?

So, I was asked to do a product review of the new Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T)

Our most advanced tracker yet, the Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T) is petite yet powerful. It allows you to transfer your fitness data wirelessly to your smartphone with our free Omron Fitness App. Featuring Bluetooth® Smart technology, the Alvita Wireless Tracker records regular steps, aerobic steps, distance and calories burned so you can set realistic goals and check progress along the way

I was actually REALLY excited about this little gadget because I needed a little push. I wanted to see how this baby worked and I ripped it open and went straight for the instructions….


OK, I admit, I freak out at gadgety things… BUT this was so easy. The instructions were basically: pop in a battery. Download an app. Now WALK!!!

OMG OMG. I have never been so excited to get out since my first pedometer in 7th grade! I grabbed my two #dogjerks and told my hubby “you’re coming with me!!” and off we went!!

I had to fight the urge to keep looking at it and checking my phone to see my progress. It certainly was fun to see how it shows your activity by time of day.

I realize that between taking care of work, my pups my husband, etc. I don’t always leave much time for myself and I forget how good FRESH AIR and a quick walk feels.

The hubs and I got to chat and reconnect and it was FUN.

Omron is encouraging women like us to #walkoutwednesdays where we schedule a walk with a friend and get out there on Wednesdays!

Why is it important to walk with a friend and not alone?

Many studies have shown that working out with a partner or group of people encourages you to stay on track and motivated. Many people choose to workout with someone who lives within close proximity.

I am excited to see how I can increase my daily activity and also reconnect with a friend or my husband once a week, just getting outside.

The awesome thing about this little tracker is that it is only $40!

It syncs to your phone and you can also sign up for a free account at where you can:

  • Download and share fitness activity from their personal dashboard
  • Participate in fitness and other health challenges
  • Easily view data on a mobile device or PC
  • The website syncs with the Alvita and our new line of connected blood pressure monitors where you can analyze your data, set goals and track your health progress

If you want to see more, make sure to find OMRON on FACEBOOK or go to their website

How to make time for healthy activities every day

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 anyone who wanted something couldn’t go out and get it!! (I still believe that if you want something you can make it happen)

However, I now have realized, the hard way, that too much pushing, not enough ALLOWING can pretty much, well, get your panties in a bunch!

You can become no-fun, too serious, and actually less healthy!!

(ain’t nobody got time for that!!)

There is a big world out there and all kinds of people. There are all kinds of fitness and all kinds of food and ways to eat and stay healthy and active.

I actually took nearly TWO FULL YEARS off of what most people would consider “working out”… at least in the sense of how I used to work out.

I decided, it was best for me, to just make time for healthy activity.

Some of that actually meant: RESTING.

When I was overworked, tired, sick and sore, in the past, I would just tell myself to “suck it up”

This ultimately led to burn out and a whole bunch of hormonal rebounds.

Ultimately, just staying active has helped me maintain my physique, my relationships and my sanity!

I’m excited to team up with Stayfree® to share how I am able to stay calm, cool, and collected while staying active.

Here are some of my best tips on making time for healthy activities:

  • Think outside the box!! – we think we have to “go to the gym” to have a workout. Not so!! I started doing a lot more from home– climbing the stairs to my apartments 25 times and then some push-ups on the counter– a little goes a long way!
  • Opposite Day Workout - sometimes, we have SO much stress in our lives- work, kids, traffic, etc. the last thing we need is another high intensity workout to raise cortisol even MORE. Take a walk. Take a yoga class in person or online. Breathe and let go.
  • Use your breaks wisely- if there is little time between leaving work, picking up one child, dropping off another, etc. Make those water breaks or lunch breaks count!! Walking lunges, parking far away, a few squats while waiting on hold. Make the extra minutes count!
  • PLAY – My newest, most fun way to get some activity in, is to blast Pandora and dance!! Playing is so fun and laughing is the best ab workout I have found! Make life and fitness enjoyable and it will be easy!

What are some ways that you stay calm, cool and connected during your busy life?

How are you going to Be Active this year? #BeActiv


I was recently made aware of a campaign by Viactiv Calcium Supplements, to #BeActiv

#BeActiv means getting involved, getting moving and getting healthier.

What #BeActiv means to me is just doing the small daily things that add up!

So, the question is: How will YOU #BeActiv? Volunteering, traveling, taking classes?

Well, I decided on my TOP 3:

1. My community: I currently am a “Big” with Big Brothers Big Sisters and I plan to work with a team for a big bowling event called “Bowl for Kid’s Sake”. It is a fundraiser and will be an awesome way to do something for the community, have fun, and get out with friends.

2. My dogs: I hate to say this, but I am so lazy with walking my dogs, but since living the RV life, they MUST get out. My plan to #BeActiv this year is to take them on more adventures (walks) take them to the park and have them happy and moving!

3. My business: I am learning to let others work in their strengths instead of trying to do everything myself. My personality is to try to do everything myself. I need to let others shine where they shine and let myself do best, what I do best!

I know small changes make a big difference. Usually when a client comes to me with weight-loss goals, we don’t strip EVERYTHING down (well… sometimes) but usually it’s tweaking just a few small things.

Small changes = Big Results.

There are so many benefits to being active in health and diet (obviously) this also includes getting your daily calcium.

I have been into health, fitness and nutrition since I was in college.

Of course, being a woman, we always hear about how we need to take more calcium.

The question is: How much should I take? and OMG do I have to take MORE pills?!?!

I found this chart at which was very interesting to see! There was also a chart showing how much calcium is in certain foods… (I definitely needed more!!)

I have actually been using Viactiv Calcium chews now for, probably 7 years!! I remember in my competition days, I would keep the chocolates in the fridge and have two of them at night like it was my dessert!!! (I still feel like it’s dessert!!)

There is something about just looking forward to your supplements, rather than having one more horse pill to swallow!!

I just found out about the Viactiv Gummies. I was super excited to try them, but someone in my household wanted to “make sure they were safe” first. hahaha…. needless to say, they were more of a hit for the hubby, even the purple packaging didn’t deter him!! He said to me, “My bones are brittle.”


Mmmm Hmmmm… whatever you say Big Man.

Oh well, I have my chocolates and caramels!!

The two things I love about these the most are:

– easy, convenient (non-dairy) way to get calcium

– I look forward to these so it’s easy to remember!!

There are actually quite a few options from Viactiv now:

Chocolate Chews, Sugar-Free Chocolate, Caramel, and Gummies.

You can pretty much find them anywhere: WalMart, Target, CVS, and the gummies are only available at Walgreens!

So.. here’s something cool for YOU guys… Viactiv is doing an AWESOME #BeActiv Promotion.. you could win a $1000 American Express Gift card, one ot two $500 gift cards, or a FitBit!! Whoop!!

Check out THIS PAGE for details and tag your pics with #BeActiv

3 Food Prep & Meal Planning Tips For A Busy Person

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 you’re only prepping for one. However, the answer is simple. You want healthy meals and snacks to grab when you’re busy. If delicious, homemade and healthy food is available for you, you’re going to eat it.
When I started working my first real job, it wasn’t uncommon for me to work 80 hours a week. I quickly became very stressed and unhappy. I learned the importance of prepping meals for myself and found lots of tips and tricks along the way. I used these tips and tricks in my new ebook, A Busy Girl’s Guide to Happy Eating. Today I’m sharing some of my secrets with you!
Below you’ll find 3 of my favorite tips for a single person. These will set you up for a successful week of eating clean foods. Yes, you’ll have to take a couple hours out of your weekend to go grocery shopping and prep. The more you do it, the faster and more efficient you will become. You’ll also find that you’ll be less stressed during the week and feel great because you’re fueling yourself with good food.
1. Prep Full Meals
Instead of prepping components like cooking plain chicken, cutting up vegetables and baking potatoes, make complete dishes. This takes out all the guesswork when you’re tired, hungry and feeling uninspired. You can roast the chicken, vegetables and potatoes together with rosemary and olive oil for an easy dish that can be eaten as is or thrown over a vegetable salad.
2. Stick To 2-3 Meals
If you’re someone who doesn’t need a ton of variety, perfect. Then there’s no need to eat something different every single day of the week. This will cut down on leftovers. If these 2-3 meals you choose make several portions than you can eat in a week just freeze what you can for another busy week. Doing this will help you get a head and give yourself a little break in an upcoming week.

3. Keep A List 
Keep an on-going list of your favorite meals that worked well for busy work weeks. This way you won’t get caught in a rut of making the same things or have to put too much time into figuring out what you want to make. This will make your shopping and prepping time quicker too!
Being busy IS an excuse, but there’s no reason why it needs to keep you from eating healthy. Use these simple tips and you’ll have people wondering how you do it.
If all this still seems undoable for you, be sure to check out my ebook, A Busy Girl’s Guide to Happy Eating. It’s a step-by-step, 6-week guide filled with menus, shopping lists and prep instructions. And because there’s more to happy eating besides food, you’ll also get a daily self-care activity.
Happy food prep and meal planning!

Get Glowing Liver Cleanse

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 to make my hormones function optimally and what “true” health is.


I have tried different cleanses before, I have even created my own (you can download it by being opted in to my email list here)

However, about 8 months ago I needed PROFESSIONAL help (think DOCTOR) with my wacky hormones.
I met a woman, Dr. Tami, at an event, and right away I could tell “She GETS me.. she GETS MY BODY!!”

Sometimes, as women, we just KNOW that something is off, but we don’t have any exact reason for saying so.

Dr. Tami helped me get my hormones tested and helped me understand what was happening with my body… why my moods and periods were wacky.. why I was tired in the afternoon… whew!!

What I love about her is that she GENUINELY wants to help women feel AMAZING.

She recently posted about her Get Glowing Liver Cleanse and I figured, you know, I have NOT been taking the best care of myself (and possibly having a few too many social drinks) and maybe my liver could use a little jump start.

I could tell, that my skin has been a little less “glowy” and my digestion hasn’t been fantastic, so I got going on this cleanse.

I’m just a few days in, but I can tell you right away some things that I LOVE

  • This doesn’t feel “restrictive”- I still get to eat, I just know I need to clean it up!
  • I feel like I’m really doing SELF-CARE. I love the shower and skin scrubbing part!!
  • It’s pretty easy!! I just take out my supplements for the day and remember to drink more water
  • My skin is already clearing up and feeling less itchy.. yay!

One thing Dr. Tami mentioned to me was the juicing; how it is suggested but not mandatory. She doesn’t want people to beat themselves up for not doing it every day.

I have to say, THAT right there instantly made me feel less guilt, and like I am still doing my body a lot of good, even if its not “perfect”

I feel like I can actually incorporate this into my life maybe once a quarter and there will definitely be enough product to do so!
I’m excited to see and feel the results in the next week and a half!!

Holiday Gift Guide for the Fitness Freak


“What do you want for Christmas?”

I always HATED that question.
I’m not good at coming up with what I want, but then again, I make an amazon wish list all year long.
So, I decided to see what was on my list, but also some of the cool things I have been using all year that you may want to ask for or get for your other fitness girl friends.


I admit it, I am a personal development junkie. I have had to reprogram many years of BS, so I’m always looking to keep my thoughts toward positive and I also love to continue learning. I love books about health and fitness and about leadership too. Here are some of my favorites and some on my wish list

The Slight Edge (must read for everyone.)


fitness, health, business, relationships.. here is the answer. Easy Read too.


 The Miracle Morning– I have NOT yet read this book, but I am always trying to get up earlier and make my mornings better (I’m NOT a morning person) so I really want to read this and have a better morning routine. Plus… I love miracles :)
I also heard a podcast interview with the author and I was really impressed… so there’s that.

Fitmark Bags Meal Management Bags- as much as I travel. I MUST bring my own food. It gets WAY too expensive to eat out all the time and definitely can be so tempting to eat junk.

It is a MUST-HAVE for a healthy lifestyle!!

Pull-Up Bar-- you just have to have one in your house. Pull-ups are badass.



MPG Tote- gorgeous gym or travel bag. I want.


Fit Bit and Samsung Gear Fit– these are just a few of many fitness trackers. I know Nike Fuel Band is hot… but I LOVE Fit Bit because of the simplicity and color options. I also love the new Samsung, because.. its just bad ass. Let me know if you get one :)




“I am a Sweaty Betty/ Don’t Be a B!tch” Sweatshirts– hey! It’s winter.. they’re comfy, cute, and you get to tell people #DBAB What’s not to love?! (There are multiple colors and tanks too!)


SKORA Women’s Running Shoe- I’m not sure about running in these (I hate running) BUT I love them for lifting, other cardio and they’re CUTE!  Love the coral color, super fun!

Screenshot 2014-12-03 14.46.38


Montiel-- I saw these tops this summer and fell in LOVE. I love cute backs of tops that can show off with loose fitting shirts. I have just about every style and color. I wish I made money off this, but I don’t. So have fun!!


MPG Sport (Mondetta Performance Gear)– I can never forget MPG. There are consistently one of my favorite brands for quality and price. They always have new collections and great sales a few times a year too!

(I have this jacket below in white.. it’s gorgeous!!)




Dry Shampoo- I CAN’T live without this stuff now! There are a ton of great brands out there, but you can’t go wrong with $3 Suave. Great to keep in your gymbag after a blow dry, just a quick spritz to freshen up and it’s even great after you wash to give your hair a little more volume!!

Screenshot 2014-12-03 13.41.20


Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes - I got these at the Fitness Magazine Meet & Tweet event and I am OBSESSED!! They smell so good, they don’t sting… and living in an RV– you need to freshen up without water more often than you’d think. (they are also vegan, cruelty free and biodegradable)

These are a perfect purse or gym bag essential!!


love these wipes for face, body, hands… everything.

Also found a fun kit with BB Cream, Lip color and the wipes!

Also found a fun kit with BB Cream, Lip color and the wipes!


Nerium AD Gift Set (Day/Night or Day/Night/Body)- if you’ve followed me for the last year, you may have seen mine and my friends and families AMAZING results with Nerium. This stuff if LEGIT. Discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size.. it helps. Also the new Nerium Firm works wonders on stretched pregnancy skin, loose skin from weight loss and the appearance of cellulite. No joke.. get some. 30 day money back guarantee… (click purchase on bottom left)


The total body gift set (you can also just get the day/night experience for face)


Canada and Mexico too!!


Ear Buds– these are a MUST for cardio (gotta keep the beat on your run!!) I have tried all kinds but YurBuds have a great fit and reasonable price. Cute and easy stocking stuffer!!



Bodyworks Ball– this little gym bag gadget is amazing!! I’m always getting knots in my shoulder blades which are SO hard to reach. I used to lie on the ground on a ball, but gosh darn it, sometimes getting on the floor is a little… questionable?
So this cool ball you can toss over your shoulder and get to those hard to reach places. There are a ton of great uses.



MODERE Laundry Pods– I know this is kind of random, but someone sent these to me as a gift, and since we have been living in the RV and going to a lot of laudromats, you have no idea how convenient these are!! They smell AMAZING, are very portable and efficient. I need more!!

Premier Protein Giveaway!!


Ever since I was 8 years old, I remember watching my mom and my grandma drink “weight-loss” shakes.
They had those Slim Fast cans… remember those??

I’ve been intrigued by dieting and nutrition ever since and I’ve tried just about everything out there when it comes to protein shakes (my husband even works for a supplement company, so we have our share!!)

There are so many kinds of powders, but I do a lot of traveling, especially on the road, and its just not always convenient to have powder and dump in the water… and you DEF can NOT do it ahead of time (just trust me on this one)

I found Premier Protein, oh man… maybe 6 years ago? I used to get their bars at Costco and I remember taking them on a trip to Europe (which really came in handy when we didn’t like the food in Russia!!)

Anyway, on a recent road trip my hubby and I were on, I told him I was hungry and VOILA
he said there were shakes in the cooler!! (I married and handsome AND smart man)


Premier Protein saw this and saw that a lot of you wanted to check these out too, so I hooked up a SWEET GIVEAWAY!!

Anyway, I have loved these shakes for a LONG time (much better than anything in a can)
but they recently reformulated them just a bit and now they taste even better.. cool.


So.. all you need to do is leave a COMMENT below (just a “I want!”)
