The day I went to film at KryoLife, owned and operated by Joanna Fryben,  I was actually feeling significant shoulder pain.
I refer to my life as a juggling act because there are so many facets of what I do that need to be in constant motion. In fact, I have more than a few waist trainers that I've been using for over a year since becoming curious about the waist training trend. As a Latina (my mother is Honduran), I'm feeling the need to spice up Thanksgiving with some Latin peppers.
What follows are my favorite photographs from the day I conquered my fears with the Special Olympics of Missouri.
You might think that living in downtown Manhattan, I already see it all when it comes to high style.
If you haven't been to any of Serene Social's wellness events yet, you're missing out and should definitely go to the one happening tomorrow in NYC at the launch of New York's Fashion Week.
I will be there and looking forward to some heart opening rooftop yoga atop the James Hotel in Soho.
One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive.
Barre classes first came about in a big way in the 1950's on account of ballerina Lotte Berk. It beats being ohm-ing indoors, especially with the cool breeze off the harbor blowing through your hair.
Earlier this summer, I spent one of the most amazing and healthiest travel weekends of my life at the Four Seasons Baltimore. I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. What sets this year's event apart from the last few, aside from the bearably cooler weather, was yoga-preneur Lauren Imparato leading the highly publicized morning class.
I got in touch with the designer, Geneva Peschka from SunandDaughtersCo on Etsy, to find out more about the inspiration behind the shirt. Geneva bravely decided to act on the lessons she learned through these books and noticed her life change drastically for the better. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. And just in case you stop dancing to see where the hell you're going, the cruise will be sailing to Falmouth, Jamaica with a stop in Labadee, Haiti for a private live concert featuring the hottest Caribbean artists. While the entire Team SCA crew was not on board, 2 of its sailors were there to answer all my questions.
Their sail, while impressive in it's own right, represents something far greater for women. From your clothes to accessories and gadgets, don't take a risk by wearing it for the first time on race day!
I picked out some rather loud styles for our shoot but once I got comfortable in them, I had no qualms wearing them "off-set".
If there's something you should know about me it's that I avoid tourist traps at all costs! For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants. I typically only share my press features on my press page, but today I'm expecially THANKFUL because this issue of People Style Watch marks the 12th time I've been quoted in their magazine. One of the most classic New Year's resolutions is to start going to the gym more, which is exactly why gyms start hiking up their enrollment fees around this time. I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift. I make yoga dates with my girlfriends constantly because I feel like I get the most quality time with them during this workout than any other. If you're looking to visit NYC or take a staycation yourself, keep reading for details about the GIVEAWAY I'm offering with Dream Hotels. When I entered my room at the Dream Hotel Midtown, this was the first thing I saw: a framed picture of my 2 puggles, a bottle of champagne and a gluten-free birthday cake! Calluses, also called tylomas or keratomas, are protective layers of compacted, dead skin cells or patches of skin that thicken, especially in bony areas, to protect the skin from damage or injury. Constant friction and pressure on one part of the foot (usually the heel or the ball of the foot under the metatarsal heads) can cause calluses to develop on feet. For example, a musician who has played the guitar for many years usually has calluses on his or her fingers.
Still, it is not uncommon for this to happen to the other metatarsals, or for more than one callus to form at a time. A foot callus can be ugly and embarrassing for some, but it’s important to remember that the formation of calluses is part of the body’s defense system. Unfortunately, some people are prone to calluses because they have less cushioning tissue between the bones and skin of their feet.
Remember, calluses are generally not painful or bothersome, but if proper treatment steps are not taken, the callus can become infected, which may lead to additional symptoms. Many people try to remove calluses on their own by cutting them off with a knife or razor blade, but doing this can cause further damage that can lead to infection, requiring a visit to your podiatrist. If you are diabetic, you should talk with your doctor at the first sign of changes on your skin. Moleskin is a common material that can be purchased in strips or patches to put on your feet before wearing a pair of shoes known to cause you calluses. These types of home remedies should be discussed with your doctor to ensure that they are safe treatment methods for you.
If the calluses are stubborn and refuse to respond to non-surgical methods, surgery may be performed to remove them. Your doctor will know the best surgical method to remove your callus based on the circumstances of your individual case. Wear orthotics and or padding or arch supports to help redistribute pressure when walking, standing, or moving.
Foot pain can sometimes be a sign of an underlying condition that requires medical attention. Ingrown toenail develops due to number of factors, but in majority wearing small sized shoes is the common cause. Whenever you walk or run, it puts some amount of pressure on the toes and gradually toenail suffers.
Before trimming the nails, you should keep the foot in warm water so that the nails would soften. But if you want the benefits of the treatment, it's worth enduring the very looooong 3 minutes. So I was genuinely hoping to reap the benefits of whole body cryo and report back to you on how quickly it worked.
One of my recipes is an appetizer and the other is a side dish to accompany your turkey dinner. Look for them in the canned and jar food aisle where you'd find things like stewed tomatoes, pasta sauces, etc.


I'm pretty sure it was a combination of the perm's harsh chemicals (it was the early 90's afterall) and my onset of puberty. There's an amazing event called Over The Edge that happens nationwide through the Special Olympics, and I decided to do it in St. To some extent that's true because of the amazing and innovative fashion sense people have here. Serene Social has teamed up with Lululemon and Suja for this gathering to kick off the calamity of fashion energy that's about to overtake the city. By the time his photographs started getting noticed through social media, it was already a passion project. I've talked a lot about Haute Athletics this summer and love that they carry stuff you won't find elsewhere.
Since there are women rockin' this style and attitude in their everyday clothing, clearly there should be activewear that expresses the same vibe! But the real highlight was scoring my room at the Four Seasons for their celebration of Global Wellness Day, which was served up as a full week of fit & healthy activities.
Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you. Here's the link again on Lucy's Blog :)]]>On June 21st, Athleta was the headlining sponsor of Solstice in Times Square put on by Times Square Alliance for it's 13th year.
When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing). She told me that over the last few years she's been doing a lot of self work and stumbled across Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group.
She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me. After writing about Team SCA and their amazing adventure racing around the world, I was invited on a press trip to sail with them.
Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. As I write this, there are some incredibly athletic and brave women sailing around the world as part of Team SCA. It stops in nine countries around the world before finishing in Gothenburg, Sweden this June of 2015. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs.
I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path.
As I get older, I find I need to do more to preserve the firmness, the lift and glow factor of my skin.
I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide. Since she's a fashion designer, I knew she'd love chocolates from the most stylish and talked about chocolatier in town (the owners used to work at Per Se). Check out my favorite winter workout that lets you skip the cold and will instantly heat up your muscles. A stylist-blogger friend of mine by the name of NYCPretty (who knows more about fashion than any person I know) mentioned Rent The Runway to me. The second metatarsal bones in the feet bear most of our body weight, and calluses commonly form under the second metatarsal for this reason. These extremely painful lesions develop under the skin and can make it difficult to walk, stand, or even wear shoes. If the case is more severe, an x-ray may be needed to help the doctor find any abnormalities in the foot’s structure that may be causing the problem. Soaking your feet in Epsom salts, essential oils, moisturizers, or tea may be sufficient when trying to soften hard, dead skin. The metatarsals are the long bones located in our feet, between the tarsal (ankle) bones and the phalanges (toes).
Always seek the advice of a podiatrist, physician or other qualified health care professional for diagnosis and answers to your medical questions. It very often develops on the corner of the nail and bends down touching the skin surface till the toe.
By wearing tight shoes, you are forcing the toes and in turn the nails forward and hence the skin gets infected and swelling develops. It wasn't an overnight kind of relief, but the pain did completely go away about a day and half later. I reached out to Hourglass Angel (the most well-known waist training seller online) to see if I could try their products and, of course, come to my own conclusion. Louis at The Arch so that Special Olympics athletes from my hometown can train, compete and enjoy a lifetime of their own thrills. BUT, I'm never as exposed to the world of fashion and the mind-blowing creations debuting on runways as I am during NYFW. Graffiti Beasts leggings feature the art of real street artists whose art can be seen on the streets of Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, New York City and many more cities across the world. Michelle Austin, founder of the Fluidity Barre, was one of her students among others like Exhale founder Fred Devito, who I interviewed HERE. They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses. If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation. Check it out because I go into detail about why these skincare products should be in your summer gym bag STAT! This is the yearly event where yogis come together right smack in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the day the sun is at its highest position in the sky for the longest period of time. The tracker itself is a black shiny oval shaped piece that clips into a metal slip-on bracelet. But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear. A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals. Spirit Junkie and the book A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson really helped open her mind and heart to all the amazing possibilities that can happen when someone chooses love over fear. If you know of a case that shoud be on this list, please add it to the comments section below with a direct link.
It's a 5 day adventure and my sources are telling me that there will be 130 of the most famous Zumba instructors onboard including Beto Perez himself.
They're competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is considered to be the toughest sailing race in the world.
It's a long trip (9 months at sea!) and it's a tremendous challenge for these women, requiring massive teamwork and goal-setting.
I teamed up with Chrissy's and my bestie, Michelle from YoGoGirls, to bring you these playful and sporty looks.


I'm 5'2" with muscular legs and I loved the way these Polka Dot Socks almost seemed to lengthen my legs. Aging lines, sun damage and sagging are major concerns of mine, and I'd like to do the most I can to prevent the visible aging process from coming on faster than it needs to.
Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin. As I admired the glossy bonbons (they're literally lacquered with a sugary coating and some are topped with edible gold leaf) my mouth was watering insatiably. Yoga's the one activity where even though you're not talking, you're still connecting with each other while on your mats. I'm asking everyone to snap a pic of their favorite outfit, fit look, accessory, or fitness fashion product. Your podiatrist can help you understand how to prevent the calluses from forming and can treat the callus or remove it for you. Likewise, if you trim your nails too short, then it projects the toe outside subjecting it to wear and tear. I already have enough gadgets and gizmos in my life that if I'm going to add something to the mix, it better do something spectacular. As a fitness trend expert, I never limit myself to just fitness events because EVERYTHING is fusing together these days.
Fact of my life: my toiletry bag + makeup bag + hair dryer and roundbrushes = most of the weight in my suitcase. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. The 2 pieces together are minimal and sleek in away that far out-styles FitBit, UP by Jawbone, Nike+ Fuelband and similar black band trackers.
The 2 metal bracelet finishes--Midnight Purple and Brushed Gold--blend exceptionally well with silver and gold tone jewelry. It's going to be a fun springtime evening social, if you will, and a great chance to check out the evolution of LimeLight! So I've put a little something together with a posh studio that's new to the area called Core3 Fitness.
Hopefully they'll inspire you to get creative with something as simple and inexpensive as a pair of socks.
So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt.
I can't perform magic tricks but I can wear Altchek MD's Daily Moisturizer made with SPF30, Ester C and Vitamin E. The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins. I thought I'd share with you what I've got on my desk today: the March issue of People Style Watch Magazine and my new favorite toy, a Ball Wide Mouth Mason Jar with a fruit infuser lid!
It's one of the easiest invitations to extend because no one has time--including me--to workout and see their friends unless it's happening simultaneously.
Or, I could be happy with the skin on my back and the beautiful things I have in my life at this very moment. Then again, the idea of spending hours--maybe even days--shopping for the perfect dress was something I just couldn't do ESPECIALLY during the height of Christmas-time shopping.
The first 6 are larger presents that require wrapping, the last 6 are stocking stuffers that pack a big bite for being so small.
For some patients, doctor may administer electric current or surgical tools for removing the part of nail that is bent.
Since I'm the healthy one in my familia, they count on me to contribute an interesting veggie concoction that wows their taste buds. I caught the flu somewhere between rushing to shows and shaking hands with and hugging everyone.
I've been to a few of their events, but this year's New York Fashion Week 2015 showcase was one of my favorites. It's challenging, modern, music-oriented, and doesn't follow all the yoga rules you're used to. Most people won't even notice you're wearing a tracker because it looks like a fancy bangle. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport.
I learned a lot from them about Team SCA's voyage, race conditions and day to day life at sea during this gorgeous afternoon spent sailing on the Hudson River. Going to the Big Island this past February was my 3rd time back to the wonderous state and I used a new online travel guide service called Localfu to navigate my way around like a local. Even my hunky Australian officemate who is the epitome of a guy's guy goes to SoulCycle and has a ClassPass acount.
I love clothes, shoes, accessories, and the feeling of being well put together--yes, even for the gym!
But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter.
Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine.
That being said, I was pretty excited to see which brands would be making their debut at TechStyleNYC! If you live on the West Coast, keep reading because I have details on an amazing fit event happening out there as well. They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one. I want you to be informed on all the possibilities of fitness instead of believing bogus stories that discourage you. My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. The trend in activewear these days seems to be famous musicians starting their own fit collection. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old.
I've always loved Nelly's music but I was truly thrilled at the idea of going to a glam event that would surely bring good vibes to a recently damaged city and it's people following the events of Ferguson. Around the time I turned 12, my dad took me to get a "Mariah Carey" perm because I wanted Mariah's exact hair from her music video Someday. I can only imagine how much these super stars have to workout to look so incredible, and a true diva likes to do things her own way. I discovered there's a lot out there in the world of iPhone cases, and with a brand new iPhone 6 on my hands, I began to test. So I reached out to him to express my fandom and whadayaknow, he's the nicest guy on earth!
