Essential Oil Lemon Cookies

I am in love. With lemon essential oil. Lemon has always been one of my favorite scents because of how fresh and invigorating it is.  But it is also one of my favorite flavors.  And now, I’ve discovered how to make a yummy treat with this golden beauty.   But first, a few fun facts about lemon oil:   Did you know lemon oil is not the same as lemon juice?  Our doTERRA lemon oil is cold pressed from the rind versus squeezed from the fruit.

Get Rid of Exercise Excuses Once and for All

  Excuses.   We all make them.  In the moment, we convince ourselves that our excuse is a really good ‘reason’.  But all-too-often, these reasons are just attempts at explaining or justifying our choice to avoid responsibility.   When it comes to exercise, there seem to be 3 main excuses that hinder us from achieving the level of fitness we need and desire:   Not enough time. Not enough energy. Not enough motivation.   Burst training with BURSTClub effectively removes the obstacle of these 3 excuses. 

Are Your Tired of Fad Diets?

Recently when I did a Google search for “books on healthy eating,” I was shocked to see that 159 MILLION options were available! With such an overabundance of resources in this area, why in the world am I writing another one to add to someone else’s Google search? Do we really need one more guide for eating healthier?   I have asked myself these questions numerous times. The conclusion I’ve come to is this: I’m frustrated…with the wealth of information and knowledge

3 Reasons to Never Skip a Sprint Day

So, I already explained in this post how tempting it is to skip your sprint day.  I mean really, it’s a rare breed who looks forward to going out and running as hard as they can for any distance! But here are 3 reasons why I personally never skip my BURSTClub Sprint Day when it pops up as the next workout of the day. 1. Sprints Are a Complete Body Workout The more lean muscle you build, the more fat your burn. 

One Habit that Will Drastically Improve Your Eating

We have no shortage of information as it relates to healthy nutrition. It’s fairly easy to get lost and overwhelmed in all the content—including the countless recipes and plans that are easily accessible.  To avoid the pitfall of information-overload, keep a clear context in your sight at all times.  Context will guide you…keeping you on track and helping you reach your health and weight-loss goals. Context profoundly simplifies and declutters your life by giving you one main thing to focus

Drink More to Eat Less

Did you know that if you drink more you will actually burn more fat, eat less, and even lose weight?   And I’m not talking about drinking more wine or beer!   I’m talking about water.   Water itself doesn’t have any magical properties that burn fat, but it is definitely connected to your body’s ability to burn fat properly and to maintain a healthy weight.   Your body is made up of 60% water.  Most of us walk around dehydrated because we are either too busy to

How Many Calories Are Burned After Exercise?

Did you know that an effective workout can continue to burn calories long after your workout is complete?  Notice I said, “Effective.”  There are many types of workouts you can do but some have been proven to create a bigger “after-burn” than others, largely due to the intensity of the exercise and the amount of recovery required by the body.   That is why we love burst training so much.  It is efficient with your time, yet extremely effective at creating a

3 Secrets to Staying Fit without Killing Yourself

Every Club has it’s rules.   But BURSTClub is a different kind of club.  Our standard and keys are not to be confused with rules or laws.   A rule often generates thoughts and feelings of fear, guilt, and the need to perform: “If I follow this rule, I am good. If I break it, I am bad.”   As my husband and I speak to groups around the country, we are shocked at how much guilt and

Mommy New Year Healthy RESET

  Happy New Year!   Well, sort of…   Every year, I think of September as the “Mommy New Year.”  This is the time of year us moms have just crammed in our last family vacation, BBQ, and trip to the pool.  Then we sped off to Walmart or Target to fight our way through the gauntlet of school supply isles, trying to get everything on the list before the first day of school.  Those of us brave enough to venture out on tax-free weekend
