Kohl's Can Help with All Your New Year's Resolutions!




Kohl's has everything you need to get your household healthier and fitter! Kohl's offers a huge selection of workout clothes, juicers, FitBit, headphones, athletic shoes, fitness equipment, and so much more- all at the great prices that Kohl's is famous for. Keep reading to see how to kick off your New Year with Kohl's, and luckily, thanks to Kohl's you can keep the healthy fun going all year round. I had the pleasure of working with Kohl's for my New Year, New You series and I am so excited to tell you all about it. The Jillian Michaels Crossbar Strength Training Kit is on my wishlist! It even comes with a DVD & a guide book! I so WANT this! Maybe next time around. But keep reading to hear about what I did decide on. 



Kohl's has SO many fantastic items to help keep my family fit & active that I had a hard time choosing how to kick off my New Year and get back in to the healthy habit groove. The first item that caught my eye were these fabulous FILA SPORT® Maui Skimmer Capris! They come in a variety of super cute prints and I love the length. When I got them in the mail I tried them on asap- they fit so well and the waist band is super comfy and stays put, even during my super sweaty Tabata workout. Check them out! I dont know why but a super cute, super functional piece of workout wear really does motivate me! Do you feel motivated to workout when you have something new & fun to wear?
To complete my outfit I got these super cute Nike 6-pk. Rainbow Headband Set. I LOVE coordinating my headbands with my outfits and this handy 6 pack comes in a rainbow of colors. The headbands are thin so they dont squish down my hairdo but they do keep the hair out of my eyes & they stay put!
I was in a desperate need of new weighted gloves and I love the Empower brand so I was very excited to score these at such an amazing price. These empower Weighted Fitness Gloves fit great and stay on your hands even when punching away to a tough cardio boxing workout. They are comfy too! They are one lb each, and while that doesnt sound like a lot- try them with your fav boxing or kickboxing workout & see how much it ups the intensity!

And last but not least a tough workout DVD to do while sporting my super cute accessories above. And, get this- you can even watch a clip of the workout DVDs on the Kohl's website. I chose Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix DVD so I could use my new weighted gloves and because Im a Jillian fan AND because I love a good kickboxing workout. I havent had the chance to try this DVD out yet but I cant wait!!



Keep Kohl's in mind for all of your workout needs, from equipment, shoes, clothes, blenders, electronics, fitness equipment and so much more all at amazing prices! They have fitness DVDs, exercise machines, dumbbells, fitness tubing, and so much more! The Kohl's website is SO user friendly that you can find exactly what you want quickly & easily. You can search by brand, size, category, gender, and from there you can even further refine your search. I love shopping Kohl's online. They are always offering specials and discounts along with their everyday low prices- Kohl's is my store of choice! I love their online shop & I love browsing their brick & mortar stores as well. Kohl's online offers frees shipping!

Hair Warrior: Protects Your Hair From Sweat & Heat, Reduces Frizziness & Fading, Adds Shine, Softness, & Body!


Hair Warrior is an innovative new product that I am SO excited about! When I work out, I sweat, a lot. The back of my hair is always dripping with sweat by the end of  a good workout. All that sweat and salt is left in your hair and it is damaging to your locks. Hair Warrior is heat activated so when you start heating up, Hair Warrior gets to work protecting your hair, strengthening it, and smoothing your hair. Think of Hair Warrior as an electrolyte for your hair. It will hydrate and protect your hair while you work out. Hair Warrior protects from sweat and heat that causes damage to your hair. This body heat activated fitness formula helps reduce frizziness and fading while adding shine, softness and body.


Hair Warrior is easy to use. Squeeze into your palm and work through your hair prior to your workout. It preserves my curls and keeps my hairdo looking fresher after my workouts in addition to saving it from all that salty sweat. My curls look less frizzed out and more in control after my workouts, which makes it easier to get on with my day after a sweaty workout. I workout in the evenings now so Hair Warrior has made it easier for me to transition into the rest of my day without having to refresh my hairdo.

I dont wash my hair every day so I love that Hair Warrior protects my hair, provides moisture -my curly hair really needs moisture especially in the dry desert heart, and strengthens those locks. Its easy to add some Hair Warrior to my hair before my workout to save my hairdo then to try to fix it later while its all sweaty. Hair Warrior protects your hair and you will notice improvement with use! Love it, so unique and a real lifesaver for my hair.


Hair Warrior is a heat-activated product, adding hydration and protection to each strand as the body sweats and heats up during activity. When the body sweats, the salt from perspiration damages and roughens the hair. Hair Warrior works hard when you do – preserving, strengthening and smoothing the hair’s strands. Hair Warrior is different from other hair protection products because the health of your hair will improve with each use. Not only does Hair Warrior replenish what has been lost, but also it will prevent damage to the hair at the same time.

Element: Beginner Level Yoga Featuring Alanna Zabel DVD Review

Element: Beginner Level Yoga
Alanna Zabel, 2015

This DVD contains two 30 minute routines and a bonus guided meditation segment. Alanna works out alone in a beautiful green garden area in front of the Pacific Ocean. You wont need any equipment for these routines.

Foundations Program: After standing breath work poses include neck stretches, warrior 1 & 2, forward bend, tree, Mt pose, 1/2 plank, plannk, chest opener, down dog adding pedals & calf stretches, sphinx, cobra, and 5 min of corpse pose.

Slow Flow Program: You begin with seated breath work with positive affirmations and move into seated stretches, cat cow, down dog calf pedals, cobra, Mt. pose, side angle pose, chair, warrior 1, plank, childs pose, stretches, and 4 min in corpse pose.

These are beginner routines that are gentle and slower paced. You will hold all the poses longer as you arent flowing through them quickly, so great for starting to build up your strength. Alanna offers modification options such as using a block or strap, though she does not utilize during the routine. I received this DVD to review.

Coco Joy: THE Best Coconut Water I Have Ever Tried, Amazing Coconut Oil, & Delicious Flavored Coconut Milk Drinks


I will start by saying Coco Joy is the BEST coconut water I have tried- by far. I really wanted to like other coconut waters, I keep trying new brands and various flavored coconut waters even, but they are all meh to me. They just never seem to be worth the calories and I never even finish them when I buy them & end up tossing them. UNTIL Coco Joy- my coconut water world has changed. Coco Joy tastes like a macaroon cookie. Rich flavor, lightly sweet but not overly so and simply amazing. I shared one with a friend and she agreed- AMAZING. The ingredient list is: Coconut Water. Nothing more, no added sugars, no preservatives. I dont know how Coco Joy is so much better than the competition but IT IS! Seriously the only coconut water I will ever buy. Coco Joy also offers amazing flavored coconut milk - think banana, coffee, and chocolate. They are like chocolate milk but dairy free, made with delicious, creamy coconut milk. And lets not forget about their amazing coconut oil that I use for cooking, DIY beauty products and more. Keep reading to learn more.


Like I said, the coconut water is amazing. I love to use it in infused waters. Add 1/2 Coco Joy, 1/2 regular water, some sliced fruits and some fresh herbs for a super refreshing beverage. My favorite is Coco Joy, water, sliced strawberries, and fresh mint. SO refreshing and tastes like a guilty pleasure but its healthy for you! Coco Joy is all natural, has no added sugar, preservatives or concentrates, and is packed with natural hydrating electrolytes. Coco Joy Coconut Water gives you the sweet flavor of all natural, pure coconut water from 100% green coconuts. And it’s gluten, lactose and dairy-free. Coconut water is a great after workout drink to replenish electrolytes and potassium.

  • I use coconut oil for most of my cooking because it is a healthy alternative to other cooking oils and it just tastes so amazing. Coconut oil has a high smoking point, coconut oil can be used at very high temperatures without becoming unstable and oxidising in the body. I actually started using my Coco Joy coconut oil as a coffee creamer instead of those chemical laden flavored creamers they sell in the stores. Use of coconut oil can curb sugar cravings and energy slumps (it def helps to pick me up & keep my sugar levels stable using it in my coffee!).

    Use coconut oil instead of butter, olive oil, vegetable oil or margarine in recipes, for baking, frying and more. I also use it as a lotion, eye makeup remover, face moisturizer, and its great in my hair.

    Coconut oil contains short-term medium-chain saturated fatty acids that stimulate the body’s metabolism, and increase the activity of the thyroid. Its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties help boost the immune system and the fatty acids have been found to benefit digestive disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and microbial related tummy bugs. I use it as a mouthwash (aka oil pulling) and it freshens my breath way better than any store bought mouth wash.
