It’s your friendly neighborhood (unqualified) health advisor back with more tips and tricks! First of all, I hope you’ve been able to incorporate our girl Lindsey’s health and fitness routines into your daily schedules and if not, check out her post here. Today I want to share with you some detox routines that I have adopted in the last few weeks. Diet and fitness goes a long way when it comes to getting your bikini bodies summer ready, however detoxification will help to clean out toxins and bad vibes that your body may be holding onto internally and externally.

Hi Bedheads! I’m finally settled back into a semi-normal routine – sorry for my absence on the blog! I never officially talked about the road trip I went on last week, but I made it back in once piece and it was a great success. The reason behind my trip was to help relocate my brother from Germantown, MD (just outside of Washington, D.C.) to Colorado Springs, CO. I have never driven across the country before so I had absolutely no idea what to expect, all I wanted was to see a handful of cities I’ve never been to and do some serious adventuring and hiking. Below is my experience on the road and at each of the stops we made along the way.
How many apps are on your phone? If you’re anything like me, then you’ve got three full screens with a couple sub-folders full of them. Since I’m always adding to my collection (True Life: I’m Addicted to iPhone Apps), I thought I would share some of my recent favorites that I am absolutely dying over. I apologize in advance for killing your battery power, welcome to the struggle.
*I have an iPhone so be aware that some of these apps may not be available for the Android users yet. All. Hail. Apple.
After doing a serious cabinet overhaul this week, I concluded that I needed out with the junk food and in with the health and energy boosting ingredients. It has been far too easy for me to grab pre-made foods on the go with the depressing New England weather we’ve been hit with (almost 100 cumulative inches… no joke!). While there are a lot of great and healthy foods available on the go, it does nothing for your bank account. In an effort to save money and really take control of a healthier lifestyle, I’ve decided to re-load my cabinets with some of my favorite and most versatile items.
Our New England readers know the drill. There’s another storm headed our way tonight, which means another Sunday shut in from the world with nothing but delivery and Netflix. On a typical weekend I would love nothing more than to sleep in, lounge all day in my sweat suit, and watch Netflix in bed, but unfortunately this has been the case for the last three weeks. Since I’m feeling a little stir-crazy and very hopeless, I’ve put together a list of the movies/shows I’ve been watching to help you guys get through yet another snow day.

Read on to see some quick easy tips for for changing up your diet and adding a little exercise to your busy schedules…
Happy 2015, Blogging in Bed followers! I am so stoked (and honored) that Meghan & Maria asked me to provide you with ways to maintain the New Year, Better You.
Making lifestyle changes can be exciting, but can be just as overwhelming. The key to success starts with keeping your goals small & detailed, and taking the changes on one at a time. Don’t try to do everything at once. Small, consistent changes add up! (I still continue to remind myself of this regularly, so you’re not alone)
I’ve put together a few of my favorite beginner tips to help you stay on track:
- Kick-start your morning with lemon water
Drink an 8oz glass of warm/room temperature water with the juice of half a lemon first thing in the morning. Yes, even before the caffeine hits your lips! Why you ask? Here are just some of the key benefits to this easy morning ritual:
