To Waist Train or Not Waist Train?

  Let's talk about waist training! What is it? Its simply the use of a waist cincher/corset that helps in the gradual process of waist reduction. I've seen a couple of posts in different Facebook groups and received a lot of questions inboxed about the same…there is obviously a huge misconception and I'm about to set the record straight....in my opinion :-) Waist training has been taking place since the [Read more...]

Working out – What’s the fuss!

  Working out is all about being physically active.

My Before and After 2010 – 2011

May 31st 2010, Atlanta Georgia I walked out of Doctor Bodner’s office elated. We had finalized details pertaining to my liposuction procedure. I paid the deposit and was going to pick a date between June 12th – June 19th for the procedure.

Water Is life

Water is the most under rated yet extremely important beverage ever.  Most people believe that drinking soda/pop, juice and other drinks compensates for water intake. As much as it might contribute towards it, It also contributes to consuming a lot more calories hidden in ingredients like sugar, salt, coloring/chemicals etc that are not good for the body.  Water like everything else is made up of molecules which are broken down [Read more...]

Derailed by a cup of Joe

  After a great workout this morning I decided to stop by Starbucks to grab my regular cup of joe aka a tall bold cup of black coffee.

I went from running 3 miles a day 3-4 times a week to 6 miles 5 – 6 times a week. In a matter of months, I had signed up with running groups and got motivated to participate in 1/2 marathons. Running became my life and would rack [Read more...]

All or Nothing!!

I've been going to my neighborhood LA fitness since 2008 and as I was looking around last night, I counted a handful of people that I know or have seen working out over the years but albeit their consistency and effort their bodies don't show progress.
