Spring into Action (and that Speedo) with a Good Ol' Fashioned Plan

Funny how much the weather and the calendar play with our psychology. Seems once the 1st of the year hits, or the first signs of Spring come along, so does the anxiety - the "bikini" blitz - the OMG! I've got to lose weight NOW syndrome. Here is a note I received in my inbox (tina@outdoorfitness.com) and since I know that Abby is not alone, I thought I'd share it.
 
Hi Tina…HELP! I put on 8 lbs. over the winter and I have a trip to Mexico coming up next month. I've been working out consistently for about 4 weeks and I try to eat sensibly, (about 2000 – 2400 kcal per day).  I also try to workout 4-6x per week, but, I have not lost an ounce. What else should I be doing?   Abby  Petaluma, CA

Stay Limber and Strong on the Slopes with Our Pre-ski Routine

Winter is in full swing and so is ski and snowboard season. For those of you who are hitting the slopes over the next few months, it’s time to take your body as seriously as your skiing. It’s also time to make sure your body is balanced and ready to go before bombing down the hill and weaving through the bumps.

Don't Ski Lopsided!
Many people feel they turn better to one side. This is because turning to the left requires you to transfer your weight to the inside of your right ski.

Athleta Announces Their 2011 Featured Athletes!

Adventurous. Soulful. Passionate. Fun!
 
Athleta is a brand that I am excited about. I love the fact that the clothes are functional, fun, and make me run faster! Well, okay, perhaps I exaggerate a tiny bit...however, when you wear clothes that feel good, look good, and wick away the sweat, you are comfy and in the mood to do a little bit more. This is why I am so excited that Athleta has included me to be a part of their 2011 Team of Featured Athletes!
