Flex it Pink Interview with The Beauty Daily....

Posted on June 23 2015

TBD Exclusive: Interview with Flex It Pink !

I've said it before, beauty is not only a face, but  Beauty is your personality shining through, Beauty is in everyday life. I was fortunate to get introduced to Flex It Pink , a fitness community of women  who empower each other for a healthy lifestyle.      
                                                                                                               What is Flex It Pink? Strentgh/Power + Women = FLEX It PINK  a community of women supporting each others to acheive thier goals.    
  I got a chance to interview the dynamic duo who started Flex It Pink and got to ask them some questions, I was also sent a T shirt from their line, and I have to say it is one of the most tees I've had.  I also loved how they label the sizes, They really make sure you don't feel bad about being the size you are. Check out the pics and the Interview below!     1.      What inspired your to build the brand Flex It Pink

Anna and I are childhood friends and we reconnected after having children. We found each other in the middle of our fitness journeys. We started a small group for support and encouragement with our fellow mommy friends on Facebook. The group was having so much success in changing their lifestyles and gaining so much motivation and daily inspiration that we decided to grow the group and open it to all women. We wanted to help as many women as possible and found that empowered women, empower women! It’s a chain reaction that bleeds positivity and success.

2.      Beauty is not only makeup its physical as well, yet what are some beauty products you can’t live without? Mascara we are all about the muscles and mascara. We strongly believe that in whatever makes you feel beautiful rock it, there is no wrong way to rock confidence. 3.      What is your all time go to healthy meal? ELISHA'S TURKEY MEAT LOAF I love this meal because it’s quick, easy, and I can shred as much veggies as I want into the dish and the kids don’t bat an eye. – 2lbs of Lean Ground Turkey – 2 Shredded Zucchini (I use the cheese grater) – 1 cup of milk or almond milk – 2 eggs – 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs of your choice – Add salt and pepper if needed – Optional – Add cubes of 2% cheese to make cheesy loaf Mix in a large mixing bowl, spread into large baking dish (optional add thin layer of ketchup to the top) and bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.   ANNA'S STUFFED BELL PEPPERS I love this recipe because it’s quick, easy, healthy, and delicious. – 4 red bell pepper cut in half and deseeded – 1lbs extra lean ground turkey – 1 cup of cooked brown rice – 1 shredded zucchini – Grated up broccoli – Minced garlic – Mushroom diced – 1 can of tomato sauce – Optional – Cheese (feta or sharp cheddar cheese) Cook up meat and season with whatever you like (I used salt free seasonings) and add minced garlic. Once turkey meat is cooked add veggies and cook a little longer on medium heat. Once you let that cook for a couple minutes add can of tomato sauce and cooked brown rice (I cooked mine in the rice cooker) mix all together. Add heaping spoon full of mixture into bell peppers and top with cheese or your liking. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 mins or so or until cheese is melted and browned. Enjoy! 4.      What inspired the Flex It Pink Virtual 5k ? It was Elisha’s 31st Birthday and we invited our community to complete 3.1 miles of their choice for 31 years. We had some awesome women join us in very creative ways, and the Flex it Pink Virtual 5K was born. Why not keep doing this and complete 3.1 miles for some amazing charities and earn some sweet bling. 5.      For a woman to get started in her weight loss  & over all healthy lifestyle, what are some tips you can offer to help her start out to be successful? 1.      Set GOALS These goals are going to be small achievable goals. For example your first goal could be to commit to exercising 3 days a week, or walking for 30 minutes after work every other day. Write your goals down somewhere you will see them every day. For example post them on the bathroom mirror or refrigerator so you will be reminded that you made a commitment to yourself to better yourself. Every month review your small goals and if you completed them reward yourself with something that is fun but gets you further in your goals, for example new walking shoes or workout clothes. We heard that www.FlexitPink.com has some wonderful motivational apparel to keep you working towards your goals.   2.      Consistent This is where you schedule in time for yourself every day. You need to pick a time that works best for you. This will be different for everyone. For example I wake up at 5am every morning to finish my work out before my kids wake up for school. Anna gets her “me” time in before she picks her kids up from school. Just make sure you make that time a priority and stick with it.   3.      Find an Activity You Love There are so many fun and exciting ways to get healthy and fit. Anna like to lift weights, I on the other hand love the outdoors, anything from hiking, running, biking. Anything that gets my heart pumping outdoors, I love to do. There is something out there that you love. You will just have to try new things until you find it. Remember there is NO WRONG WAY TO SWEAT. 4.      Nutrition Your food is FUEL! To start we recommend keeping track of everything you put into your body. There are some awesome free apps out there that make it very easy to track your daily food intake. I like to use MyFitnessPal.  You can then review daily log and see what foods are empty calories, for example sodas and sugary drinks. These have no nutritional value to your body. Try to replace these empty calories with water. Eliminate fast foods completely from your diet. If you do need to grab something fast try to plan ahead and bring fruits, nuts, health bars, etc with you. There are also fast healthy options out there just remember to try to stay away from places that have fried food on their menu.   5.      Find a Support System

This is very hard for most people and we know because we started Flex it Pink for this exact reason. Having someone support you in your goals will take you very far in your journey. Just know that if no one else will cheer for you or encourage you in this journey all you need to do is come to Flex it Pink. Post a photo on Instagram with hashtag #FlexitPink, or in our Facebook group or timeline and we are right there cheering for you, alongside all the amazing women who are in our community. We have had great online fitness friendships grow into real life friendships from meeting likeminded people within our Flex it Pink community. Know that you are not alone, it’s a long HARD journey, but you are absolutely 100% WORTH IT!

We feel having motivating workout wear not only gets you pumped up for a workout but makes you feel stronger and more proud of the journey you are on. The more you are reminded that you are strong and capable of this awesome journey the more you will continue on this positive path.         7.      Do you have any summer healthy living tips?
Drink lots of water, don’t get upset if you miss workouts because of the mixed up routines due to vacation and hot weather. Enjoy your time you work hard for. 8.      Do you have a favorite quote that helps you ladies keep going even on the hard days? Hard Work Pays Off. We find ourselves reminding ourselves that weekly. In business and in health it gets tough but we are tougher.
          -  Thanks so much Ladies!
