Shock Absorber: Boob Bounce Be Gone!

Shock Absorber

The statistics for the number of women who wear the wrong bra size hovers somewhere around the ridiculous realm of 90%. Working in fitness, one thing I see all the time is women not wearing proper sports bras and it crushes my soul every time. We’ve got a boob-jiggling epidemic going on people, and it must be resolved!

I see women wearing regular bras (most likely the wrong size) in the gym, or some sort of regular bra + ill-fitting-sports-bra-over-the-top combo that just makes no sense. I could go on and on about how vitally important it is to have a good sports bra, suffice to say, you are doing your fun bags no favours by cutting corners in this department. A lack of adequate support means your boobs bounce around and the ligaments in there stretch. The bad news is, once they’re stretched, they don’t bounce back. So basically, if you want saggy boobs, go ahead and don’t bother wearing a sports bra!

Goals AF


I’ve been in a slump. Well, maybe ‘slump’ is the wrong word. I’m happy. I love what I do. I have a great family, great friends, awesome dog. I’m more than content with where my life is right now. (Man, those were some really braggy sentences). But lately, something has just felt a little…off. Bored wouldn’t be the right word either. But it’s been niggling at me. So this past week I decided to stop dancing around the problem and just admit to myself: I’m lacking a goal.

Getting Older is GREAT!


It’s my birthday! WOO HOO!

I’ve had a reflective couple of days leading up to today. I can clearly remember exactly what I wore at my 18th birthday dinner and now, all of a sudden, somehow I’m 35. And I’m not lamenting getting older. Quite the contrary. I know as women, we’re basically supposed to just host our own funerals the second we turn 30 or a wrinkle, but I’m actually really enjoying getting older.

Fall Back! Don’t Drag Me!

We have one of those super real discussions on the podcast this week. Lemara and I lament that our current internet culture doesn’t allow for open, honest, curious conversation anymore. We seem to be living in a time where you can’t have an opinion without being jumped on, shut down or dragged for possibly expressing something incorrectly, or even expressing anything at all, if it doesn’t fall in line with an ever-increasing set of politically correct guidelines, that can be really hard to keep up with.

Basically, can we just be open minded enough to let people ask questions, to actually have conversations and invite curiosity, instead of shutting people down or trampling all over the discussion with faux-offense and ridicule?

Have a listen and let us know what you think.

And you can email us with your questions, comments, opinions etc on – we love to interact with you guys.

The Universe Has Got Your Back

Stringer Bell

Make yourselves comfy peeps. I need to tell you a lil story about how the universe will just show up and restore your faith in life and the divine order of things.

On Saturday night, I noticed my dog (the most awesome pup in all the land, Stringer Bell) wasn’t very well. It seemed to come out of nowhere. I made the mistake of Googling his symptoms, which then rapidly led to me planning dog funerals (I know – I went from 0-100 REAL quick). According to everything I was reading, things looked really bleak for my lil dude. I was distraught. I made him as comfortable as I could to sleep that night in the hope that his symptoms would’ve subsided somewhat by morning.

Dear Women

International Women's Day

My fellow uterus owners, glorious ambassadors of all that is womanhood, kickers of all of the ass – I salute us all on this day of celebration that is International Women’s Day.

In the spirit of celebrating how far we’ve come and how far we have to go, this day is great for learning, for sharing experiences, for coming up with solutions, getting a fire in your belly and committing to keep fighting the good fight.

I spoke at an event today about female entrepreneurship, things I’ve learned on my journey and the advice I’d give to other women. When I thought about it, there have been three big lessons I’ve had to learn over and over throughout the various peaks and valleys that have made up my career. These ones in particular, I think are quite gender specific. I thought I’d share them here:
