As I try to lose the last of my baby weight, I notice that even I start to obsess about the last 10 lbs. Try not to focus so much on the last 10, 20 or 30 pounds that you're trying so hard to lose. It's just too discouraging. Take it one day at a time and start with small goals. When you get up in the morning, think, 'I have to go to Lithe and then make smart choices for lunch or eat a healthy snack while I'm sitting at my desk at work.'
Can't get through 30 pushups or plyos during class? Do whatever you can do in the studio and finish the last 5, 10 or 20 at home to complete your 30. I find that if you check your healthy habits off your daly to-do list, you'll spend less time obsessing and becoming discouraged over the daunting numbers.

Hey Lithers & FitHipHealthy fans, I'm looking for TWO great editorial interns for FitHipHealthy this new year. Check out the details below...
About the internship:
*10 hours per week. The schedule can be flexible.
* Many different tasks, including scouting for posts and products; conducting interviews inside and out of the studios for Lithe TV and FitHipHealthy, doing blog formatting and admin; taking photographs, running blog-related errands (e.g., picking up leggings for photo shoots, taste-testing Lithe Foods, going to the post office), and providing general administrative and editorial support.
* Commitment of at least three months, starting around Jan 2, 2012
* Ideally one person based in NYC and one person based in Philadelphia. You can work remotely from your home much of the time, but I'd love to work together a few times a month.
* Unpaid, but with perks: Exposure on FitHipHealthy, learning the ins-and-outs of how blogs work behind-the-scenes, learning how to run a small business, jokes from Jordan, laughs from Mars, Lithe classes, food and gratitude.
About the intern:
* FitHipHealthy reader & is familiar with Lithe.
* Has a camera
* VERY detail oriented and precise.
* Likes to research, photograph, test and scout fashion, food and beauty products
* Fluent in the online shopping world and the blog world.
* Adept at internet research.
* Friendly, creative and hardworking.
* Efficient and adept at meeting deadlines.
* Bonus: Experience in graphic design and Photoshop.

We're debuting our seasonal Sweet Beet next Monday! This juice is SO good for you. Beets are known for their super antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support – thanks to a unique source of phytonutrients in the skin and flesh of these earthy gems. Our juice will ground, restore and replenish you from burning the candle at both ends.
Beet juice is also great for building healthy, rich oxygenated blood – crucial for the early morning/late night Lithing and in your daily fight against holiday fatigue. Did you know that Beet and carrot juice in combination is also believed to help combat varicose veins? Combine our Sweet Beet with Lithe Watershed for fast results!
It is amazing how the Lithe community has become part of my life in such a quick time. I started as a client and was striving to find time to fit multiple classes in because I found them so addicting as well as interesting. From a Physical Therapist perspective I still find it so very interesting, enlightening and impressive in how you create the lineups.
Now, I am an instructor and truly love the girls who take the time out of their schedules to meet me in the studio and work their heart outs. Thank you for this community, thank you to the Lithers for their beautiful spirit and support and thank you to the Lithe workouts for giving me an amazing confidence in my wedding gown.
Much love, Joellyn
