Elevate Your Fitness with the Fitbit Charge

My word for the year is elevate which means I'll spend a good deal of time looking for ways to raise my standard of living in both large and small ways. As you know, big changes require consistent small steps and my first small step toward elevating my fitness level is my brand new Fitbit Charge. It's the best activity tracker on the market!

Met my goal! Fitbit Charge Activity Tracker

I am in absolute, complete love with my Fitbit Charge. I don't use the word obsession lightly, but in this case, it is totally appropriate. I am constantly checking my stats, updating my daily intake and tracking my results. I think I look at my Fitbit Dashboard more than I look at Candy Crush screens and, trust me, this is not an insignificant amount of time.

Golden Globes 2015 ~ Best Dressed

Red Carpet season is one of a blogger's favorite times of the year.  There's so much to see and so much to critique, the casual observer can easily slip into eye candy overload. But not me! I say bring it on. Today I'm taking a look at the 2015 Golden Globes Red Carpet and selecting my picks for best dressed. Here goes!

The Glamour Goddesses were out in full force with ultra body-con gowns and side-swept tendrils. I loved all the color on the carpet this year including the pale blue worn by Amy Adams, the scarlet red on Catherine Zeta Jones and the super sunny yellow number worn by Leslie Mann. Wowzer! Also, Rene Russo gave a lovely turn in a sapphire blue stunner.

Golden Globes Best in Beauty 2015

The Globes Red Carpet is always my favorite because it has the most star power--TV and film actors all in one place. Nirvana! So I want to get right to my favorite beauty looks for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.

The carpet was largely divided into two camps this year, fresh faces and glamour goddesses. There was also a sprinkle of eye-popping color tossed in for good measure and a little fun! 

Among my favorites in the fresh face category were Globe Winner Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston.

2015 Word For The Year: Elevate

Happy New Year!

As we ease into 2015, lots of folks are choosing their Word For The Year. Not familiar? A Word For The Year is like a guiding principle, something you'd like to apply to your whole life. Different, and some say better, than a resolution. Whereas resolutions are focused on a specific goal, a guiding principle can touch every area of your life. 

Elevate: Word of the Year 2015

Last year, I chose 'mindful' as my word and this year I'm choosing ELEVATE. Why elevate? To make a long story short, during my year of mindfulness I discovered a few things, not the least of which was that several areas of my life were suffering from a sense of lowness. Let me explain. Lowness comes in many forms: low energy, low performance, low expectations, etc. My life had fallen victim to my exhaustion and my choice to pay close attention to what was happening brought it all to the forefront. Hence my desire to elevate!

So what does it all mean and what exactly will I focus on? I'll tell ya! First on the list is my health and fitness. I took on this juggernaut last year by returning to running and it was great. This year the plan is to do even more, run further, faster and more regularly. Coupled with that is overhauling my nutrition and eating habits. That's a biggie! There were way too many burgers and fries on my plate and though I love them, I'm cutting way back, replacing them with leaner protein and actual veggies. Yes, I know the potato is (classified as) a vegetable but let's get serious.

Some of my other elevation plans will be visible on these pages as I've planned a blog redesign/overhaul with more reviews and a broader topic base so stay tuned for all the goodies coming your way!

Well, that's enough about me. Do you choose a Word For The Year and if so, what's your pick for 2015? Sound off in the comments! And as always, thanks for reading!
