So you want abs?

Abs – I hear about them all the time.  Everyone wants abs!  They want a flat stomach with a 6 pack and the ability to flaunt it comfortably.  I can’t say that I blame them!  So what is the big challenge with it and why is getting that amazing 6 pack so hard to achieve?  I think it’s because the way we think we get there is incorrect. Have you ever heard that “abs are made in the kitchen”?  Well, there is…

Staying healthy through my pregnancy: 20 week update!

I’m halfway there!  I can’t believe it.  It seems crazy that I’ve already been pregnant for 20 weeks and like it’s flown by.  At the same time, it seems like forever since I wasn’t thinking about babies and just enjoying a glass of wine with my husband after work.  It seems like it’s gone by fast and slow at the same time. So in my last post I informed you of how things went in the first trimester.  A little…

First Trimester Exercise… or at least my attempt!

My husband and I are very excited to be expecting!  Our little bundle of joy is expected mid-July and we really are two giddy and happy parents!  So I decided to do a post about pregnancy.  I am not going to dedicate this entire blog to this.  It is still about everyone living a healthy lifestyle and my tips will be for everyone but I figured once in a while I should put a post out there for all the…

Running With Asthma

As all of my friends, families, and any readers of my blog know – I love working out and specifically love running.  I have run numerous races including 4 half marathons and 3 full marathons.  Well here is something some of you don’t know: I have asthma. I developed asthma while in college (in undergrad).  This sounds crazy, I know.  I had no idea this was something that could develop later in life but it did.  After breaking out in…

The Not-So-Boring Salad

If you follow my facebook page (Fit Busy Female), then you might have noticed food has been on my mind from my past couple posts. So many people think that if you want to be fit it means you can’t enjoy food or that you don’t eat much. I’m here to tell you that’s not true and you MUST eat to be healthy and fit! You must eat quite a bit! What you eat is different though… Okay, so choosing…
