I apologize for the tardy publication of the show notes for this episode of Addicted to Fitness. We had a very busy, yet rewarding trip to see my family for the Easter holiday, which you guys will hear more about on next week’s episode. But we’re living in the NOW, so here’s a recap of this week’s podcast
Listeners Talk Back
Received a brand new 5 star iTunes rating and review from a health & fitness pro who happens to be on an upcoming ATF guest. You can read her review by visiting the iTunes store, and while you’re there please let us know what you think of the podcast by leaving your own rating and review.
I finally led my first Stick Mobility group class at Tampa Strength. Stick Mobility exercises/movements utilize 4 to 7 ft pliable sticks that act as “force multiplier(s)” to improve mobility, flexibility and muscle activation. The video below demonstrates how the sticks can enhance well-known exercises.
Shannon has stayed super active this week thanks to the awesome Florida weather & the desire to get Ella outside. She walked on the Riverwalk, visited local markets and even strapped her in the body carrier and moseyed around our neighborhood. All this exploring led to her surpassing her iWatch step goals several days in a row.

Ella turned 6 months old a little over a week ago and she has made a ton of progress. She’s communicating with us, sitting up on her own and has started experimenting with solid foods. Her new nutrition options have helped us be more adventurous when it comes to grocery shopping. We are also back to our old meal prepping ways.
If you have a little one at home that is reaching milestones & helping you be more cognizant of your health, please let us know about it on the Addicted to Fitness podcast Facebook page.
Shannon wanted to share the “unboxing” of her seasonal subscription box from FabFitFun. Subscription boxes are a pretty popular trend and Shannon decided to invest in this one because it focuses on fitness as well as beauty, wellness, and fashion products. You’ll have to listen to the entire episode to hear about everything that was in the box but my fav’s include:
- A vegan “leather” travel eye mask that has a cooling insert
- A massage roller that fits into your carry-on luggage
- Guava body butter – smells terrific
