Yes, that’s me at #Blogher20 Health in Los Angeles looking like I have short hair! I did a double take when I saw the shot—is that really ME? The funny thing is I’ve actually been contemplating this exact chop for a while but haven’t been able to pull the trigger. It’s always easier cutting your hair when you’re at the verge of a major life change.
What a cool day, right? It’s OUR day but also a day to celebrate all the historic achievements of the women before our time. If someone were to ask me who I’d be celebrating today it would be Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo and Maya Angelou. All 3 women are icons who inspire me and whose life stories make me want to be a legend myself.
When I started Mizzfit.com over 10 years ago, my mission was to help motivate women to exercise and find a way to balance an active lifestyle with everything else they were doing. It started as a mere idea and became my passion, my mission and ultimately my career! A lot has evolved since the creation of this blog and expanded beyond this catchy url, but what has remained strong is my desire to LIFT WOMEN UP.
I hope the image that you see above make sense now :) I'm holding one of my best friends, Michelle Thomas, who I've known for years and actually met in a tabata fitness class. Michelle is like a sister to me. She’s someone I really...
New York City is gearing up for its 3rd Nor'easter. Each time it hits, it's the day I'm supposed to travel for work. I've already had to reschedule two TV appearances this year on account of the first Nor'easter. But hey, weather is unpredictable and when it hits, it usually hits hard. There's nothing you can do about it. Unless of course, you're ME...you'll find something to do like STRESS! I was born a worry wort. It's a shame because stress is so bad for your health.
I should really take my own advice and just NOT stress out but that's hard for me to do. Over the years, I've tried a lot of supplements to help calm me down. There are some that work really well for me that contain Magnesium powder that you can mix with water. I like them fine but I'm not always in the mood to down a full glass of flavored magnesium water. Lately I've been turning to vitamins, which in my opinion are much easier to take. I get nutrients to help me calm down and feel more balanced.
I’ve partnered with Aveeno to bring you this personal blog post about my experience living with Eczema.
As I write this, I have eczema. But that’s nothing new. I get it a lot. In many ways, it’s part of who I am. I come to expect it and have learned to live with it. At this point in my life, eczema isn’t the end of the world for me. But I’ll never forget when I first got it; it felt like my skin was waging a war against me.
So, why on earth do I want to talk about and publicize my skin problem? Well, for one, it’s Eczema Awareness Month. And second, I’m not ashamed about having it. I made a YouTube video years ago about it that connected me to so many people going through the same thing. And recently, I shared my story and important facts to know about eczema with Health.com. Educating people is important to me because eczema can be really confusing. Whether you have it or you don’t,...
I always love sharing a heart warming story...although I must admit this one makes me tear up every time I talk about it even though it has a happy ending. Alex Scott is a little girl who had cancer all her life until the age of 8 when she passed away. During her fight with cancer she created a lemonade stand to raise money and awareness for cancer research that helped children like herself.
She created an incredible movement that was all over the news and in publications near and far. Other children and families joined in, creating their own lemonade stands to follow in Alex's footsteps. Sadly, Alex couldn't beat her disease (this is the part that hurts) but she left behind a legacy of goodwill, love and dedication for her vision that lives on as the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and Alex's Million Mile.
When I was approached about working with Alex's foundation, I immediately said YES. The story completely moved me and I felt like Alex handpicked me to share her...
If you don't have a SodaStream in your life, you need to get one! I'm obsessed with mine but I have to admit that I got on the train a little late in life. I wish I had purchased one much sooner! So, I put together these recipes with the help of SodaStream to inspire everyone to reject the vending machine and all those delicious looking sugary drinks that get advertised to us all summer long. I know they look good on billboards and in commercials but so many carbonated drinks and sodas are loaded with sugar and sodium.
I kid you not that my SodaStream has become a healthy replacement tool. You can make your own fizzy drinks without the huge calorie intake. If you already have a SodaStream, you know what I'm talking about (just skip ahead to the recipes below). Drinks loaded with sodium (that seem to be lower in calories or have zero) will most often make you feel bloated and sluggish. Not good if you're trying to lose weight! The opposite will happen! Your body will hold onto...
