My Latest Fitness Find

photo-24This quick-hit Motivation Monday post is aimed at helping all you ladies “train like a beast but look like a beauty.”

If you’ve been reading my blog since last April, you already know how addicted I’ve become to Physique 57.  While the workouts have made this body leaner and meaner than ever,  they’ve also caused one undesirable side effect: callouses.

Between the 10-minute upper body warm-up with weights and all the positions I hold onto the barre for stability while sweating through an endless barrage of squats and other standing seat and leg work, my palms have taken a quite a beating. Since this bona fide “girlie girl” is equally addicted to keeping my nails in shape, I realized I needed to do something to try and keep my hands looking healthy on both sides.

Then one day, I ran into a woman leaving the class before mine who was wearing the solution: “girlie” weight lifting gloves! I’m now happy to share my find with any other fitness “beastresses” who want to add the final touch to your cute and colorful workout wear. The gloves I found are here at  I plan to order my second pair soon!

So remember: while strong is the new sexy, you can still add a little feminine flair to your fitness routine to help you have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
