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.

I'm still processing this but I can't keep it a secret any longer.
I've joined forces with adidas!!!!!!! Can you tell there's an implied shriek in this bit of news? I'll be doing all kinds of cool things for them, like getting my butt kicked at the official adidas headquarters gym and reporting on their upcoming sportswear innovations for women. Imagine me jumping up and down because that's what I did all the way to Portland, Oregon (where the pic below was taken).
The funniest thing to me about this picture is that I'm wearing heels! But seriously, I have 1 colossal shoe to fill!
On top of all the excitement of traveling to Portland and meeting everyone at adidas from the designers to engineers, I fell in love with a padded sports bra. It's called the Supernova Racer Bra.
It has just the right amount of padding to smooth perky nipples over (am I the only one this happens to?) and is designed to prevent uni-boob from happening ('cause who wants that?)....
MizzFIT.com wouldn't exist if other fitness-related websites (and the people behind them) hadn't influenced and inspired me.

They're the reason I keep falling deeper and obsessively in love with fitness. I would be a selfish girl not to share them with you.
