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,...

What's On My Desk?

So it's Friday and I'm at the office. I thought I'd share with you what I've got on my desk today: the March issue of People Style Watch Magazine and my new favorite toy, a Ball Wide Mouth Mason Jar with a fruit infuser lid! I typically only share my press features on my press page, but today I'm expecially THANKFUL because this issue of People Style Watch marks the 12th time I've been quoted in their magazine. I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide. I also wanted to take a moment to tell all of you that I'm always here to answer your questions about health & wellness so feel free to contact me. My mission has always been to get you moving! It's why I love my job :) I know in the winter it can be really hard, if not impossible, to go outside for a run. God knows I won't do it in these temperatures that have been hitting NYC. I hope my latest quote in PSW Mag will inspire you...

Changes I'm Making + GIVEAWAY

I just joined the #BeActiv campaign which entails that I share my new health goals with you for 2015. To be honest, I have more health goals than I can count on 5 sets of hands, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Speaking of sweet, Valentine's Day reared its rosy head and lured me into a chocolate shop last week. The shop, nestled in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, is called Stick With Me...and it's where I nearly got myself into a sticky situation I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift. Since she's a fashion designer, I knew she'd love chocolates from the most stylish and talked about chocolatier in town (the owners used to work at Per Se). As I admired the glossy bonbons (they're literally lacquered with a sugary coating and some are topped with edible gold leaf) my mouth was watering insatiably. WAIT! This isn't the kind of stuff I allow myself to eat! It's the kind of stuff I only allow myself...

3 Diet Trends Shaking Up Wellness World

As I write this, I'm recovering from the WORST food poisoning of my life, which makes the practice of eating CAREFULLY so much more relevant to me. The last few days have been...well...extremely cavity opening. But I'll leave it at that because had I followed the advice from any of these books, I wouldn't have suffered through the last few days (and if you've had food poisoning before, you know what I'm talking about!). Definitely watch the video above from my appearance on the Show Me St. Louis show or CLICK HERE. For more detailed info, keep on reading as I only had a few minutes on the show to talk about each diet. At the end of this article, there's a GIVEAWAY and I'm picking 3 WINNERS. The Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey I love this diet because it revolves around coffee, which I've grown up loving since my family in Honduras owns a coffee plant. Many doctors and health experts will tell you that coffee is bad for you but Dave Asprey claims it's exceptionally...

Recap of My Life, 2014 Year End

So this is a recap on the last 2 months of my life. I figured why not turn the lens around and show you what's going on in my life. I enjoy narrating through pictures so here goes... 1. I launched an incredible Mizzfit sock line with Pointe Studio because I love barre fitness like a crackhead. The response has been amazing and no one has thrown their sweaty socks at me yet. They're grippy on the bottom so if you don't do barre, you can also just wear them at home instead of scratching up your nice wood floors with heels. They make great stocking stuffers too. 2. I spoke at iHeart Radio's Lifestyle Health & Wellness Expo in Brooklyn, NY. I'll be at the next one in Harlem, too, on January 29th of 2015. I was honored to speak alongside someone I quite admire: Miss Jenna Wolfe (health & fitness correspondent of the Today Show). I convinced her to meet with me and give me career advice so I will keep you filled in on how that goes. My advice to you...

Latham Thomas on Women Who Empower

I was lucky enough to interview Latham Thomas for my Women Who Empower series on YouTube. She inspires women through her business Mama Glow, her "hip guide" on prenatal wellness, her beautiful affirmations on social media and through all her doula work. She's been known to work with many celebrities like Alicia Keys. Latham also helps women get fit during and post-pregnancy. When I first approached Latham about filming together, I asked her if she'd comment on the events that went down in Ferguson, Missouri, which is not far from where I grew up in St. Louis. She was all IN. The conversation we had below was months before there was a final decision for NO INDICTMENT in the case against Darren Wilson. Click HERE or on the image below to watch. Everything Latham says comes from such a calm and honest place. Find out what the life of a Prenatal Wellness Expert is all about, especially if you're interested in becoming a doula or hiring one to assist you through your...
