If he loves to golf, check out this lulu polo and these shorts. The Pilot wears these polos and shorts almost every time he’s not in uniform.

10 tips you can use to transform your health

Web Admin 0 365 Article rating: No rating

Hi friends! Happy Monday and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. We’re finishing cleaning and organizing our closets (they were an epic mess lol) and enjoying the day with the crew.

For today’s post, I thought I would share some simple but powerful health tips from myself and Mia (a Registered Dietitian). It’s easy to think that changing your health requires a huge overhaul at once, but the beauty is in creating small habits and building from there. If you haven’t read Atomic Habits, I highly recommend it!! It explores the power of habit building and how to use small habits to make huge changes.

Here are some of the things that come to mind that you can use to build on over time. I’d love to hear if there’s anything else you’d add to the list!

10 tips you can use to transform your health

5 tips from Gina, a Precision Nutrition coach, NASM certified Personal Trainer and Women’s Fitness Specialist

1. Meditate

Meditation is one of the most powerful habits I’ve added to my personal health routine. When I meditate, it immediately affects how I feel on a mental level (more calm, patient, less anxious, more present) and it also affects my blood glucose when I’m wearing a CGM. The days that I meditate, I notice that I sleep much better that night and have vivid dreams. If you’re not sure how to start a meditation practice, check out this podcast episode.

2. Hydrate yourself throughout the day.

Even better? Sip on some LMNT electrolytes or another electrolyte you love. Hydration affects so many processes in the body, from digestion, skin tone, immune function, hormones, satiety, etc. I like to aim for at least half my body weight in ounces, and definitely have one serving of electrolytes each day, especially when it’s hot outside or I’ve had a longer or more intense workout.

3. Swap out frequent high-intensity exercise for low-impact or lower intensity options.

If you’re currently doing lots of high impact and high intensity workouts, assess your routine and make sure that you have some lower intensity days and at least 1-2 days completely off each week. After a certain point, you will experience diminishing returns with super intense workouts, usually through hormonal issues (exercise is a stressor for the body and it really comes down to how we recover from exercise!), and potentially overtraining symptoms or overuse injuries.

SSD 2022 winners

I am continuously impressed by our LSF community. All the women in this community worked their butts off in this challenge. Not only was I inspired by your AMAZING transformation photos but your stories nearly brought me to tears. 

I am so proud of each and every one of you! You all finished this 8-Week Challenge strong which will help to create wonderful habits that will last a lifetime. Thank you for pushing yourselves and our community to be the best we can be! 

While we are on the subject, we need to shoutout our SSD winners! These women put their all into this 8-Week Challenge. These fabulous women, not only have incredible transformation photos but the most heart warming stories! It is my pleasure to introduce you: 


Lindsay, @linds.lsf

This was Lindsay’s FIRST challenge with us! She absolutely crushed this challenge and she lost 6lbs within this 8-Week Challenge. This challenge saved her and helped to create amazing new habits that she plans to stay consistent with. 

“Three weeks into the challenge, my blood pressure readings fell into the healthy range where they belong. They’ve been in that healthy range ever since. It’s crazy how fast my body responded to a few simple improvements. I started taking care of it and it immediately returned the favor.During the challenge, I lost 6 pounds and a couple inches off of my waist, hips, and thighs. But I gained an “I can do this” attitude and that’s made all the difference. Now I feel ready to tackle new challenges such as dedicated meal prep and leveling up to advanced workouts in the app. This whole experience ended on a high note for me because just a few weeks ago, my boyfriend took me engagement-ring window shopping! So what started out as a commitment to my health is turning into the beginning of the rest of my best life. “

Friday Faves

Web Admin 0 249 Article rating: No rating

Hi friends. I hope that you’re hanging in there this week, despite the horrific events that took place. I’ve cried a lot, and hugged our girls a lot, and have been working to educate myself on these important issues and take action as needed. Thankfully our school has already sent a thorough email with directives from the superintendent, even though we’re out of school, and I feel thankful for that. You can join me in donating to the victims here.

In the spirit of keeping this blog the positive space that it is on the internet, I’ll still be sharing Friday Faves below. If you feel like you need to take a break from the internet this weekend to protect your heart and mental health, I hope that you’re able to do that. I also hope that despite the sad news that we’re constantly surrounded by, that you’re still able to find moments of happiness and peace in the weekend ahead. <3

(We’re going to be in the pool the entire time and having the fam over for dinner on Sunday)

3 things to bring more joy into your life.

Did you watch the final episode of This is Us? How was it?? I watched the penultimate episode this week (and curled into a little ball as I cried my face off) but haven’t watched the series finale. Please lmk how you liked it!

One of my favorite gratitude meditations.

Don’t forget to check out this week’s podcast episode about anxiety here.

Going with the Pilot (and the entire squadron – they rented out the theater – to see Top Gun) tonight. I can’t wait for a theater full of pilots to shed tears at the opening scene and then spend the rest of the movie heckling the screen. Pray for me.

Fashion + beauty:

Face shaving tips for women. I’m still not sure about this whole thing. I tried a couple of times and I’m 99% sure I had a 5 o’clock shadow about an hour later lololol. It felt like my face was spiky when it grew back, too. Is this real? Do you do this?
