You may know me from the Today show, where I worked for the past nine years as a lifestyle and fitness correspondent. I'm also a personal trainer, mom of two young children, and partner to a network correspondent. I juggle a million side projects, and our household is busy, but we manage to stay healthy.
12 minutes ago I just counted and it turns out I've done 683,464 pieces (gross exaggeration) for TODAY. I've done the serious, the absurd, the daredevilish, the ridiculous, the fun, the funny, the sweet, the salty, the athletic, the athletic-less, the conceptual and the compelling.
If you think you need at least a half hour of cardio to make it worth your while, I have good news. You can get just as good a work out (maybe even better) with just 10 minutes. This does not mean it'll be easy.
After we aired this morning's story about the dynamic woman who ran an 800 meter race 8 months pregnant, it got me thinking about my athletic accomplishments during my pregnancy. Don't worry, it was a fleeting thought... because there weren't that many. Yes, I worked out... a lot.
May 13, 2014 at 3:22 PM ET If crazy mornings make exercising before work out of the question, and you're too exhausted after work to even think of hitting the gym, what can you do? Plenty, if you know a few tricks. No matter where you are, there's always - always!
17 hours ago Words. Powerful little tools, aren't they? We say they can't hurt us as much as sticks and stones, but that's not true. Words can sting. Words can suck. But words can also move you and motivate you and hold you up when you want to fall down, and keep you going when you want to quit.
Jenna's (Baby) Food for Thought I've always been on the move. From my childhood spent swimming and climbing trees to my current work as a personal trainer, I've never had a break in my fitness routine. Well... except for those nine months of pregnancy.
42 minutes ago There are a couple little things you can do to make a big difference for your body. I always tell my clients before a workout to keep their core tight, not just during a workout, but all day long. A tight core will help stabilize you, improve your posture and help with balance and coordination.
Jenna's (Baby) Food for Thought One of the best things about parenting is collecting all the firsts: the first smile, the first sneeze, the first haircut, the first holiday. You only get one crack at a first and if you miss it, then you have to write a whole blog post about how special "seconds" are and nobody's eager to read that.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
