Why it’s absolutely OK to choose a mini workout over a 2 hour gym sesh

I for one, am not a fan of working out. I will admit it. I’m OK once I’m into it, but it’s mustering up the motivation to actually go and do it that’s the problem. And honestly, who has time to keep up with 1-2 hour gym sessions? It’s a myth that you need to be in the gym for hours to see results.

Dietitians get fat, too.

It's been awhile.

I've been seriously lacking inspiration for a new post these past few weeks. A big reason for this is probably because I haven't been on my A-game with taking care of myself. I'm a dietitian, I'm supposed to have that all under control, right? So I haven't been able to bring myself to post anything.

I’m obsessed with this app!!!

I read about it on a Pinterest post and I thought hmmm, let me try this. Free to download and didn’t seem to take up much time. Basically, it rewards you for just walking into a store. It becomes super addicting hearing that little “ping” and seeing your points rack up!

For example, I went to Walmart this past week. I opened up my Shopkick app and walked into the entrance. I got 30 points. I scrolled through the items on the app that were listed as “points” that would be redeemed when scanned. I scanned an 8 pack of gum, a Nutri-bullet, cleaning spray, and about 10 other easy to find items and got about 200 points total just from that trip! read more
