Hi All! Happy Monday! Tomorrow I will post the winner of the Mark Your Man BoxerJock’s!

Last night, I just posted to facebook last night about how my views have totally changed on Monday’s. I honestly look forward to Monday’s now because I look at it as a whole new week of opportunity & one week closer to my goals. I am a fan of positivity and I truly think if you change those negative thoughts to positive ones…your whole outlook can be shifted.

Before we get to the Hear Me Roar event re-cap and giveaway – I wanted to highlight my girl Yenory from @Iamhealthyfit with today’s Power Plates Challenge!


Take a little different take on the Plank T Rotations by bring your leg straight across as you rotate. GREAT work for your Core & full body – as usual!

Let’s chat a bit about a recent event that mamacakes & I attended called the Hear Me Roar Event in PGH hosted by Lindsey & Jennifer. In my opinion, these two Women below have truly taken a more negative situation & turned it into a positive way to inspire others.


Meet Lindsey, the Food Mood Girl,  & Jennifer, The Stiletto Girl, who hosted the Hear Me Roar event a few weeks ago in Pittsburgh. Lindsey  & Jennifer opened up to the attendees and honestly shared their stories of sexual abuse. Both of these women took their situations that could have easily broke them and decided to take a stance to help others not have to go through something that they went through. So inspiring! I was so amazed by their poise and the way they chose to rise above their hard situations.

Before we got to the self defense class, we got a chance to meet up with some other inspiring local ladies! Miss Amanda & Caroline.

So let’s chat a little more about Jenn, shall we?

She may be tiny & adorable but I promise you she is MIGHTY. This girl is kick ass…and literally will help you do so if you are being attacked.


She took the group through a self defense intro where we learned a ton of Jenn’s favorite moves to protect yourself.


Want to know a little more about this self defense bombshell?

As a clinical nutritionist, NASM certified personal trainer and third-degree black belt in HapKiDo, Jennifer Cassetta blends her extensive training in martial arts with her holistic approach to fitness and nutrition. In 2005, she completed the Holistic Health Coaching program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and went on to graduate as a clinical nutritionist from the University of Bridgeport, CT, with a Master’s of Science in Nutrition in 2009.

While doing so, Jennifer spent 10 years training under the nationally recognized, top HapKiDo instructor in the country. All of this training sparked a deep sense of strength, determination and empowerment in her that she now wishes to share with others.

In 2009, Jennifer left New York City and brought her myriad skills to Los Angeles, where her clients include celebrities, royalty and corporations. She created the popular Stilettos and Self Defense DVD series and live workshops which she teaches across the country at universities and corporations. When at home, she consults for fitness companies like UFC, Beachbody and Katami 4X4 to create nutritional programs and manage test groups.



Jennifer has made appearances on E! TV, The Today Show, The Doctors, Bethenny Frankel, Marie Osmond and many more!  She blogs for Livestrong.com and contributes to other publications such as NY Post, Wall Street Journal, Marie Claire, Fitness, and Women’s Health.
