Egg White Tortilla: Does It Actually Work?

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

The most interesting thing about this Breakfast Burrito from Finding My Fitness is the egg white tortilla.

Does it actually work? Does it hold the burrito together so well that you can eat it with your hands, or do you have to use a fork? The blog entry doesn’t clarify, so I guess I’ll have to try it myself. (more…)


Move In Ways You’d Never Expect

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

I love this Reebok advertisement:

Move In Ways You'd Never Expect from Starling Fitness

It reads:

Move in ways you’d never expect.

I know it’s talking about their shoe that is supposed to be flexible, but I love this ad because it is true about exercise. When I’ve been exercising regularly and doing my after cardio stretching, I find that I am able to move in ways that I couldn’t before. I’m far more flexible than I was before I started exercising.

I’m also stronger. I can lift more grocery bags and my bowling ball doesn’t feel like such a burden anymore.

I can go the distance, too. I can walk further before I tucker out. If we are going up a hill, I can do it without stopping for a rest.

When I exercise regularly, I find myself moving in ways that I never expected and it’s a delicious surprise!


I Heart Eggs!

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

I found some pancake forms at the dollar store the other day, so I made some heart-shaped eggs and star-shaped eggs for breakfast.

Heart Egg from Starlig Fitness

When I cracked the eggs into the forms, some of the egg whites escaped, but that didn’t ruin them. It worked really well and I loved having the same breakfast I have every day shaped in fun shapes instead. Why should having a heart-shaped egg make it taste better?!

The next time you’re feeling bored of your normal eggs and bacon in the morning, drag out the pancake forms and have a treat for breakfast!


Stationary Bike Work Desk

I love this kludgy hack to create a work desk for your stationary bike.

Stationary Bike Work Desk from Starling Fitness

They’ve taken a plain lap desk and positioned it for a good typing surface on the exercise bike. It’s almost ingenious in its simplicity, actually.

The next time you think that you don’t have enough time to exercise, remember this hack and how one person was able to combine two activities into one, getting BOTH jobs done!

I Don’t Have Time: Your Argument Is Invalid

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

Someone Busier Than You Is Workout Out And Eating Right from Starling FitnessThe next time you think that you don’t have time to exercise, cook healthy meals or log your food, you need to realize that your argument is invalid.


Because if you really wanted to exercise, cook or log, you would MAKE the time to do it.

You need to erase the phrase, “I don’t have time,” from your vocabulary. Instead, you need to rephrase your thought to “It’s not a priority.”

  • It’s not a priority to exercise.
  • It’s not a priority to cook healthy meals.
  • It’s not a priority to log my food and activity every day.

When you rephrase your excuses in this manner, you realize that “I don’t have time,” is just an excuse. Plan ahead. MAKE time.

You don’t have time? WRONG!

Your argument is invalid.



Your Greatest Competition Is Yourself

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

I love this animated GIF from everyday i’m workin’ it.

Your Greatest Competition Is Yourself from Starling Fitness

It reads:

Your greatest competition is yourself.

It’s true. When I compare myself to others, I always defeat myself. I get so discouraged that I don’t want to continue. But, when I compare myself to how I was yesterday, it’s easy to beat that goal. If I focus on beating my past self, then I feel motivated and keep on task a lot longer.


The only person standing in your way is you.

The only one in your way is you from Starling Fitness

The next time you’re feeling down because you want to look like or do something that someone else can do, STOP it. Remember yourself from two months ago, are you better now? If not, get off your butt and make that happen. You can beat your best score or longest exercise streak. The game of comparing yourself to others, however, is one you can never win.

You Have ONE Job

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

I love this idea.

You Have ONE Job from Starling Fitness

It reads:

You have ONE job and it’s to get stronger EVERY single day.

I got it from Curvy-skinny:

You have one job

The next time you’re thinking of skipping your workout because you have so much to do remember that you have ONE job every day and that’s to get stronger. Don’t let anything else get in your way.

The Olympics

By Laura Moncur @ 6:44 am — Filed under:

I feel like I should talk about the Olympics, but I have nothing to say. How about a beautiful picture from the 1948 Olympics instead?

1948 Olympics Track from Starling Fitness

I don’t know why I’m not excited about watching any of the Olympic events this year. It’s a great year for women in sports and I should be inspired by the athletes, but I just haven’t had any interest in them. Personally, I have been exercising more now than I have for years. Maybe that’s it. I’m doing more than watching.

That’s a good thing, right?
