Fitness Friday: Focus on Lemon Water

I have always preferred lemon water to plain water, mostly because I needed a little flavor! Although lemon water has some great health benefits when you drink it first thing in the morning. If you replace your morning coffee with warm lemon water for two weeks you will see a difference! Drinking lemon water helps your body rid of unwanted toxins, aids digestion, lose weight, & improves skin. Give it a try!!   Jenn¬†

MMHM: Why Every Mom Needs Mom Friends

When you become a mom everything changes, if you are the first of your friends to have children you may find that your friendships begin to feel different. I remember when I first became a mom I felt as though my friends without children could not fully relate to me anymore and eventually it shifted some friendships. Soon I found some fellow mom friends and was able to ask questions, seek guidance or just have someone to vent to about […]

Fitness Friday: Focus on Burpees

It is easy to have a love/hate relationship with burpees, no one wants to put their whole body down on the ground only to jump back up….and repeat. Although, our bodies love burpees, they are one of the best exercises that we can do for ourselves. Burpees train your entire body, they fight body fat, make you stronger, increase endurance & burn calories. Our bodies were born to burpee…embrace it ūüėČ -Jenn
