If you are anything like me, the holidays are your favorite time of the year. It’s the perfect chance to catch up with family that maybe you haven’t seen all year, eat all the festive food possible (without feeling guilty), and to spoil loved ones with gifts (as well as hopefully receiving everything that’s on your Christmas list).

I put together this holiday gift guide to give you ideas on what to get your mother, friend, sister, daugther, etc. Sorry, guys, no men’s gift guide this time around. Many of the items I have listed here I personally own myself and would recommend for anyone else, and the others have simply been on my wish list for some time now. So if any one out there is looking for some gift ideas for me…here you go! 😀

Since leaving South Florida, I have had to get creative with my work out routine since I no longer have access to a gym or a plentiful selection of free weights, treadmills, and stair masters galore. Sure, I like to explore new cities by running every now and then but I didn’t want to rely solely on running to help keep me in shape.

This is when I saw that Fit & Thick had monthly workout subscriptions where I could download 20 new workouts per month and workout from literally anywhere. For me, one of my biggest challenges, is knowing WHAT workouts to do. So the fact that F&T pretty much gives you the exact workouts you need to do in the right order in the palm of my hands is what sold me. I love that no matter where I go, I can still take the exercises with me so I don’t have any excuses as to why I shouldn’t do it. The next few months for me will have quite a bit of traveling, but I’m not worried about my morning workouts as I know I will have them available right on my phone.
