May brings a lot of exciting things at our house.

Mother’s Day, my birthday and Nate’s birthday all fall in this month and we love celebrating! In previous years, this month of celebration would have been just cause in my mind to take a break on all things “health and wellness” but NOT ANYMORE!

I believe in living a lifestyle that is as balanced as possible. As a mom, wife, full-time special education teacher and an online health & wellness coach I am BUSY! I focus my nutrition on eating by the 80/20 rule. That’s 80% healthy and 20% treats–or even cleaner on most weeks. This lifestyle has completely changed my life. It helped me lose 30 pounds when I first decided to make a change and then 40 pounds after having Gabe. I’m not about to look back!

Eating healthy and doing at-home fitness programs has allowed me to find the balance I need in my life. I stay on track as much as possible and allow myself to have treats without guilt. I absolutely LOVE baking and being in the kitchen, it’s a huge passion and hobby of mine; and cupcakes are my favorite!  I also like to take existing recipes and put a fun, and healthier spin on them. Check out the recipes section of the blog to find some inspiration for your next meal planning!

I partnered with FIT and Flirty an athleisure and lifestyle brand whose mission is to

“encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful, powerful, and should be celebrated.

When I connected with the owner, Anna on Instagram I was so excited! She’s one of the kindest most motivated women I have ever met, and we have the same goals about sharing the message of living a balanced, healthy & active lifestyle.

We brainstormed together to bring you myhealthy” spin on the Vanilla Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Frosting. Inspired of course, by our mutual love for bubbly and health & wellness. The cupcake is a health(ier) take on a typical cupcake. The frosting is a treat–so make sure to enjoy every bubbly bite!

Without further ado–let’s get baking!

Below are the ingredients you will need for My Special Champagne Cupcake

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • After 5 minutes transfer to cool on a baking rack.

and now for the champagne frosting…. YUM!

Frosting Instructions

  • Cream butter in mixture until very smooth
  • Add 2 cups of powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, blending each cup until smooth.
  • Add in 2 tbsp of champagne, mix thoroughly
  • Add in final cup of powdered sugar, blend until smooth
  • (optional) add in a fun natural food coloring to make it your favorite color!

These are the perfect treat for birthdays, Mother’s Day or any celebration. ESPECIALLY if you love champagne & cupcakes! Enjoy!

“Balance, is Burpees & Bubbly” – Kate

After launching FIT & Flirty in August of 2018 I quickly realized I had a message to share with the fitness community and the world. More than anything I want women to stop obsessing over their dress size, the number on the scale or achieving a “perfect body”. I want to encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful as is, powerful because of her uniqueness and should be celebrated (with champagne of course). I want women to see fitness as a tool to improve their lives and not as something they need to do to look a certain way or as a punishment for eating cake last night.

I knew without a doubt there were other like-minded women around the world that saw fitness for its health benefits, as a way to feel strong through having fun and NOT as a means to try and achieve what society says is a “perfect body” this year. I believe when you’re healthy, strong (body & mind) and happy you radiate in the eye of others, regardless if you’re a size 2 or size 16. It’s our energy that make us beautiful not our waist size.

They say “your vibe attracts your tribe…” so I decided to start an ambassador group to reach ladies that shared my love for fitness, champagne and living a balanced life. I have to say the last 5 months building this small tribe (we’re 18 girls now) has been the most rewarding part of my business. I am so blessed to have met every single one of them. Strong, independent, supportive women from across the world, all thriving in different careers, crushing it at life and making fitness fun. YES, you can have your fitness and champagne too!

Today I would like to introduce to you one of the newest additions to the FIT & Flirty ambassador team, Courtney Boehrer. This lady is a very special soul, with an infectious energy and passion for life. Here is her story….

Keep your Head Up, Keep your Heart Strong.

courtney pfennig boehrerMy name is Courtney and my mantra is HEARTSTRONG.  These very words have shaped the person I am today. While it didn’t become apparent to me until 5 years ago, I’ve been living them my entire life.

When I was a little girl growing up in Indiana, my heart failed me. While my friends were swimming, dancing and playing I was introduced to the seriousness of life all too soon. I remember the smells of the hospital, seeing my dad cry for the first time and watching the worry in my mother’s eye. I recall hearing my sister proclaim her dream to become a doctor (which she did!).  I can still feel the pain of the tubes like it was yesterday, as they were inserted and removed from my chest. I can sense the fear I felt when I was wheeled into the operating room to have my chest cracked open to repair the holes in my heart.

Today, I have an 8-inch scar that runs down my sternum and I wear it proudly. As a member of the zipper club, it’s one of the many battle wounds I’ve endured in my life, and it’s a reminder to keep fighting, even when the most vital part of me starts to break.

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, I was keeping my head up, while making my heart strong.

I have a passion to inspire others through fitness coaching. My career mentorship as a Human Resources leader for over 15 years at a Fortune 100 company, and the blessing of parenthood as the momma of two beautiful little girls along side my high school sweetheart, Greg.

Burpees & BubblyI fully embraced the spirit of these words because I have fought hard with the demons of an eating disorder in college and I’ve also struggled with anxiety and depression. Luckily, in my health and fitness community I’ve found STRENGTH. Every single day, I wake up with the desire to spread the message of being HEALTHY & STRONG.

Does this mean every day is perfect for me? Heck no! Does it mean I don’t have fun and enjoy amazing food and drinks? Heck no! I may or may not be obsessed with Champagne!!

God gave me a second chance and by no means will waste that priceless gift.  I am proud to lead and continue to build my team #HEARTSTRONG every single day.

Let’s raise a glass to making the most of every single day. I am Coach Courtney and I am here for you every step of the way!

With Love, Courtney 🍾💪❤️

10 tips on how to move from “feeling” inspired to taking inspired action!

On Friday I post this on Instagram  –  

The Champagne Diet
The Champagne Diet

“One life. Just one. Why aren’t we all running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams?” 🔥 The message from @thechampagnediet is to live life vibrantly, fully, taking care of your body & investing in your happiness. Her podcast “Style Your Mind“, her multiple books and over all business message gave me the courage to start FIT & Flirty – thank you Cara for your inspiration xo. 💕 In fitness, in business and in life, what allows you to reach your goals is YOUR MIND SET!

Then, I started thinking… What if I never took “inspired action” from the sparks of inspiration I got from Cara? Well for starters, you wouldn’t be reading this…

I was drawn to the The Champagne Diet (for obviously reasons). I love Cara’s style and her podcast “Style your Mind” and books have so much valuable content. What resonates with me and has the biggest impact is her authenticity and openness about her success; it did not come over night! Cara had another career and worked her side hustle for a long time; blogging and self publishing books on amazon for over 9 years! Her brand did not miraculously explode. The way she honestly shares the struggles, hard work and persistency she experienced was, and still is, greatly reassuring to me.

My first inspired action in March of 2018, was googling “how to start your own e-commerce business” and based on what I learned I put together an initial budget and timeline to launch. Trust me when I say I had NO plans to be in ANY of the photos, there was no consideration of a second collection within the first year and if you told me I’d build an ambassador team (of f*cking fabulous women around the world) I would have said you’re bat shit crazy! The thing is, when you’re doing what you love and take inspired action every single day, momentum takes over and before you know it your ideas to “sell champagne and fitness inspired t-shirts” has evolved into a something that has a much bigger purpose.

10 tips to crate daily inspired action

Today FIT & Flirty is a women’s athleisure and lifestyle brand that promotes a healthy, active and balanced life style. Our mission is to encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful, powerful and should be celebrated.  Raise a glass to your fit & fabulous life!

So if you’ve been sitting on an idea, or dreaming about a goal for sometimes now – I dare you to take ONE inspired action TODAY!!

Here are FIT & Flirty’s 10 easy tips to help you take daily inspired action

1. Right now, open a new tab in google and do some research.

2. Email or call someone who has inspired you and ask them if they have a minute to talk about how they got started.

3. At the start or each week, make a list of to do items. Check off at least ONE thing a day, and keep adding to the list as needed.

4. Share you dream/goal/idea with someone who will support and encourage you.

5. Set mini milestones; for example buy a URL and set up a slash page by June 2019.

6. Take advantage of FREE resources at your disposal. You can learn almost anything online with the free e-books, webinars, social tools and much more!

7. Stop comparing and start supporting women.

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each one of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

8. Learn to love the journey of learning, evolving and growing because as business owner, there is no final destination.

9. Drop the fear of failing or caring what people might say.

10. Throw away the step by step plan, I can guarantee once you start the there will be major detours.

We all have different starting points, but the emphasis is we all have to START! So, my beautiful souls, what inspired action will you take today towards your dreams?

Here’s a few suggestions on how to incorporate champagne into your Halloween celebrations.

Raise a glass to the spooky spirits!

I’m sure many of you plan on celebrating with friends by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. So let me be the one to remind you to always respect the dead and honor them with glass! Raise a glass in style with champagne!

Ernest Hemingway’s favorite way to kill an afternoon was with a cocktail made with a shot of absinthe topped with Champagne. In somewhat of a publicity stunt, he named his favorite drink Death in the Afternoon, the same name of his 1932 novel, and submitted it to a celebrity recipe book in 1935. In his instructions, he suggested three to five of these drinks at a time—that’s certainly one way to send you to an early grave!!

Side note – I tried these at the Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris. They will knock you on your ASS!! I stopped at TWO!!!

Death by the Afternoon - Halloween Champagne Cocktail
Death by the Afternoon – Halloween Champagne Cocktail
Death in the Afternoon – Champagne Cocktail

What you will need

  • 1/4 – 1/2 ounce absinthe
  • sparkling wine (dry)
  • 1 dash simple syrup, optional (1:1, sugar:water)

Mixologist Directions:

  • Add absinthe and simple syrup (if using) to a flute.
  • Slowly top with chilled, sparkling wine.

Notes – Choose a good, dry sparkling wine or Champagne, because absinthe has a particular flavor profile, some may prefer more or less. Though the original recipe calls for a prodigious one-and-a-half ounces of absinthe, we prefer to remain standing after one cocktail. Contemporary versions, including ours, call for a lighter pour. Reference

WICCA and Modern Witchcraft

The modern form of witchcraft known as Wicca was founded in England in the 1950’s. Its members worship nature, and a female goddess. They take an oath to do no harm with their magic. Contrary to many beliefs Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. There are now more than 400,000 Wiccans in the United States.  But you probably won’t recognize them walking in the streets, since they don’t wear pointy hats.

So maybe on this Halloween you want to stay in and conjure up some self-case by indulging in a WICCA BATH SPELL  – yes it involves champagne!

Whoever you decide to celebrate don’t forget to close all the doors and windows because on October 31, the spirits are out in the open looking to have fun! Be safe, strange things happen on Halloween night.

Cheers, Anna xo
