Do me a favor. Stop reading this for a second and think of someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer. Is it someone you’re related to? Maybe a close friend of yours? Someone from work? Or is it you? I think that one way or another, we all know someone who has been touched by this horrible disease. Unfortunately, I have in more ways than one. And I’m so sick and tired of it hurting the people I love. Aren’t you? That’s why I’ve decided, for the second year in a row, to participate in the American…
Working out on a daily basis isn’t the easiest thing to do. We all know it’s hard. Getting my butt to the gym would be a lot easier if I had a little help in the accessories department. That might sound a little weird to some of you, but if I love my workout gear then there’s no stopping me. I’ll take the motivation where I can get it guys. And as a Shopbop partner, I know they have some of the hottest designer fitness accessories out there, which I need in my life. Whether you do yoga, go running, play…

Never underestimate the power of active wear. For the past six months, I’ve been dealing with this bum ankle. You know, the one I severely sprained in San Diego. Regardless, I’ve been on a health journey, complete with it’s ups and downs. But, the minute I put on my activewear, something just clicks inside of me. I know it’s time to get down to business.
Words can’t describe the emotion I felt as I walked in my first American Cancer Society Making Strides walk for breast cancer. I decided to record my experience so I can share it with you. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to walk and fundraise for a cause that’s near and dear to your heart.
October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month! And I am definitely thinking not only pink, but I am thinking that I want to help raise awareness and funds for the cause. That’s why I’ve decided that on October 17, 2015, I will be joining thousands of others by participating in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Breast Cancer walk here in Los Angeles. That means I’m in full on fundraising mode. And I need your help!
That moment you’re on a roller coaster and you’re about to hit a frightening loop. That ache in the pit of your stomach is back – but this time it rushes up through your heart. It feels like it grasps at your throat. Causing you to cry out in pain with a voice you’ve never heard before. Tears explode through you. You hyperventilate.
And in that moment…you just feel helpless.
I’m getting back into the swing of things. And by things I mean exercising again. It’s been a long few months since this girl got her workout on. Ever since I severely sprained my ankle in that surfing accident (read about it here), I haven’t been able to get back to my fitness regimen. I’ve actually tried a few times, but I always ended up with a sore ankle. So, basically this is what my workouts looked like.
