Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you all doing today? It’s a brand new week and though I feel a wee bit short of my personal fitness goals (I may have slacked on my foam rolling a bit…) but this warmer & sunny weather has put an extra spring in my step. Doesn’t seeing the sun out nice and bright in the sky improve your outlook? It sure does mine and with that I am resolving to get back to foam rolling and stretching every night not only it makes me feel better but it also helps me perform better as a teacher.

So now that I am saying it OUT LOUD—it will have to get done! If it kills me I am going to increase my flexibility and strength. You are all my witnesses! Now that THAT is out of the way—let’s go through my weekly news & notes. (And for those 3 of you miss my Vlog—next week I promise to deliver with a cool, new giveaway. Pinky swear!)

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes

Tips from the Pros on “Kettlebells for Beginners”

If there is one strength-building piece of equipment that really helps to build muscle while also providing an excellent cardio workout it’s the kettlebell. For Fit Bottomed Girls I wrote “Tips for Your First Kettlebell Class” so I would know how to use mine better when working out on my own.

Do you use kettlebells? What is your favorite advice for newbies?

Terry Bikes Spring Gear:

Some of you may know that I am a BIG FAN of Terry Bikes and somehow got the gumption last year to approach them as their first brand ambassador. Luckily they said yes so I get to try out their latest gear and let you know what you need to add to your next bike ride. In this post for them I picked my favorite spring items from their catalog. Enjoy!

BlogHer 15 Conference Set for NYC:

Have you heard the news? BlogHer will be back in NYC July 16-18 for their “Experts Among Us” BlogHer 15 Conference. I know I will be there but if you want more details check out this link to see who will be speaking there. (They always manage to get GREAT special guests at BlogHer events!)

Body Shaming of P!nk:

I don’t know if you heard of this story but one of my favorite singers, P!nk, attended an event this past weekend looking totally beautiful. Well because we live in an internet age there has to be a body-shaming wave headed by mean-spirited trolls tried to make her life miserable. Well if you know anything about P!nk you know that she is non-nonsense and expertly handled all of the mean tweets thrown her way. Do you think we will EVER live in a world without trolls?

How I Learned to Love Eating:

I really loved this article from Tapgenes.com talking about recovery from eating disorders. Tapgenes.com interviewed two amazing women who talk about the toll it took on their bodies and how they have successfully deal with their individual disorders. This is a definite must-read!

Book Vs Movie Podcast:

Margo Porras of Shes Nacho Mama’s Blog and I talked about The Outsiders in our newest episode of our podcast “Book Vs. Movie” and had a fabulous time doing it. You can check us out in the player below and in case you are wondering what will be the subject of our next episode—get ready for us to dissect The Stepford Wives! Woot Woot!

That’s all I have for today—keep checking back for news, reviews and playlists aplenty! Thanks as always for dropping by!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you all doing? I know it has been ages since we have seen each other but it seems as if my desire to have a “drama-free 2015” is a little off base as my sweet cat T is ill and I have been worried about taking proper care of her. I detailed it in a post last week but she has had behavior/neurological issues that we are treating with anti-anxiety medicine and she is responding well so far. At the four-week (Feb 28th) we will know better how she is doing. Keep her in your thoughts!

Anyway—it is FREEZING in the city right now so I am keeping myself busy indoors which includes getting back into the Blogging and Vlogging world and I have tons to discuss—so let’s get to it shall we?

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes:

  • Fit Bottomed Girls “Love Yo’ Self” Playlist: I know that Valentine’s Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean you do not have permission to demonstrate a little self-love and care throughout the year! I wrote this “Love Yo’ Self” playlist for Fit Bottomed Girls to give you all a little musical inspiration to do just that whenever you need a boost. So put some of those tunes on your player and have fun!
  • How to Keep Your Gym Clothes Stink-Free: My good friend Brandi asked me and a few fellow blogger pals our favorite tips for keeping gym things stink-free and you can read about it here! (TapGenes.com)
  • YogaLean Book Giveaway: The giveaways are back and this one is pretty amazing (I must say!) Beth Shaw (President & Founder of YogaFit) has a book out called YogaLean that is filled with yoga poses and yummy recipes to help you lose weight, tone up and live your healthiest life possible. (Follow them at YogaLean) This giveaway is only open to the Continental U.S. so—sorry Canada, Alaska and Hawaii residents! Details in the Vlog below.

Now on to this week’s Vlog and giveaway details (forgive me but I conflated like Brian Williams and mixed up the number for my Vlog. This is #108 for sure!)
