5 Fitness Myths Busted

Did you fall for an April Fool's Day prank this year? I know how that goes. I'm the most gullible person in the world, making me an easy target year after year. But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter. I want you to be informed on all the possibilities of fitness instead of believing bogus stories that discourage you. I picked 5 of my favorite Fitness Myths to debunk on Lucy Activewear's new blog: Yoga doesn't burn calories. It’s better to stretch before your workout than after. Treadmills are better for your feet than running outside. You need to have long legs to be a good runner. You can work out at your desk.   Haven't you always wanted to know the truth??? GET IT HERE! Leave a comment below telling me which fitness myth gets under your skin and why it's soooo untrue. Even better, comment below AND tweet it out using the hashtag #lucyletsgo so that Lucy and...

Healthy In Hawaii with Localfu

There's no place like Hawaii! My plan is to visit a different Hawaiian island every year until I've been to them all. I traveled to Oahu last year. Going to the Big Island this past February was my 3rd time back to the wonderous state and I used a new online travel guide service called Localfu to navigate my way around like a local. If there's something you should know about me it's that I avoid tourist traps at all costs! I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path. I'm a curious cat, which often gets me into the thick of things. That's me picking a noni fruit...unaware that they're the most disgusting of Hawaiian fruits to eat raw. It was a sour experience unlike the rest of my trip. What follows are my Big Island, Hawaii chronicles with Localfu... The way that Localfu works is really quite simple. You create an account and then enter your travel location. It helps if...

My Skincare Regimen at 36

My publicist once told me to lie about my age because I looked younger than my years. So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt. I'm not ashamed or embarrassed to say I'm 36. However, prancing around with 2 giant red balloons in the park is a different story, LOL! Especially when everybody thinks it's your birthday and it's really not. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old. Let me tell you a little about Altchek MD and why I love their skincare products. As I get older, I find I need to do more to preserve the firmness, the lift and glow factor of my skin. Aging lines, sun damage and sagging are major concerns of mine, and I'd like to do the most I can to prevent the visible aging process from coming on faster than it needs to. I can't perform magic tricks but I can wear Altchek MD's Daily Moisturizer made with SPF30, Ester C and Vitamin E. These are all...

Is Your Deodorant Safe? Find Out!

I was totally ignorant on this topic until my Aunt Lourdes brought it to my attention one night over dinner. She told me to choose my deodorant wisely because many popular brands pose health risks, especially to women. My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. Here's what I found... For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants. Don't worry, I will explain and you'll soon know the difference. Most antiperspirants are made with ALUMINUM. Why? Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin. The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins. Many of you fitness lovers...

I'm in the Lacroix Water Ads!

I used to write and design ads for a living and now, I'm in one! Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine. It's totally blowing my mind but at the same time I keep asking myself: why should this feel surreal? I earned it. Since May of 2009, I've been on a mission to take everything I learned and experienced from my advertising career and turn into something truly positive that will help women embrace health & wellness. And here I am, in an ad for a beverage that I truly love, representing that movement. I'm overjoyed and so thankful. I couldn't see into the future years ago and never knew what would come of my crazy idea to build Mizzfit.com and become an influencer within the health industry. I was so freakin' scared but I did it. So I want all of you to know that anything is possible with hard work,...
