A NOTE FROM THE CREATORS:

December 31, 2017

Cookbook: Volume 2

“Eating is a necessity but cooking is an art.” When we set out to create Fit Girls Cookbook: Volume 2 we knew it was going to be super special - what we didn’t know is how intimate a process it would become. But by creating all of the artwork in-house and using recipes inspired by childhood favorites (complete with LOTS of phone calls to mom asking about spices and oven temps), that’s exactly what it became.

Cooking is an art. Any way you can express who you are is an art form. And this book is the result of artists bringing their unique talents to the table, whisking them all together, experimenting, screwing up, learning, recreating until FINALLY after about a year of cook time… we came up with OUR new creation. But a lot happened in that time and it wasn’t all cookies and burrito bowls…

Once, the ENTIRE cookbook file was deleted without a trace after 6 months of work. Not even the techiest of tech people could retrieve it for us. We cried for days. And then we started again, using our handwritten notes to reconstruct the recipes and rewrite everything. We knew defeat was NOT even remotely an option so we decided to turn the situation into an opportunity to make everything EVEN BETTER.

And let’s just say it’s a good thing we remembered to keep the fire extinguisher handy…We set off the fire alarm a time or two perfecting the Sweet & Beefy Bowl. And we may have literally set our kale chips on fire once. OH and we can’t forget the culinary blow torch incident…

There were times we didn’t agree. Working with a team is always hard, even if you’re best friends! Different minds melding always leaves room for disagreement… Artists. Sheesh. SO PARTICULAR. But we believe the very things that drive us to annoy the crap out of each other are also the reasons that make us great at what we do. The individuals who worked on this book are incredible at their crafts. We were able to come together, utilize our unique skill sets, and create this amazing product together. We are so proud of it and each other!

We want this book to be a guide on YOUR adventure. What you cook up in that kitchen of yours is art. YOUR art. The spices you choose, the tweaks you make, and how you present your meal…these are all things that make it yours. Food can be so many things. It can be used to nourish your body, or hurt your body. It can be used as medicine, but also cause disease. Its taste can be surprising, daring, tantalizing, disgusting. But we all need food, and if you’re reading this you probably LOVE IT.

In this day and age it’s difficult. Fast food is readily available and conveniently cheap. Processed foods have taken over our grocery stores. We’ve learned that we can’t always trust food labels. Let Fit Girls Cookbook: Volume 2 help guide you along your journey. We believe that YOU can cook delicious food that also nourishes your body in a healthy and balanced way. So what are we waiting for?! Let’s GET COOKIN’

Fit Girl Strong Heart

September 24, 2017

-
The Fit Girl logo is very special to us and tells an inspiring story about a girl who learned she didn't have to choose.... (That girl is YOU.)
-
While it looks adorable (if we do say so ourselves) it's much more than a heart with a barbell. At its surface it may look like a metaphor for "WE LOVE WORKING OUT!" And while that may be true most of the time - it's more than that.
-
Fit Girls have strength and fierceness and power which is represented by the barbell. But we also have heart. A whole dang lot of it. Sometimes as women we are made to feel like we can't be both. And we're here to say EFF THAT. You are POWER. You are BEAUTY. You love fiercely and fiery, but gently and kindly too.   We are mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, and daughters. We are leaders, teachers, designers, scientists, therapists, and engineers.  We are everything we want to be and MORE. We are WOMEN, hear us ROAR.
-
WE ARE FIT GIRLS! And damn proud to call you our Fit Sisters.
-
(And speaking of sisters we hope you enjoy our sister photo above. We've seen friend and sister relationships blossom with Fit Girls and we are so lucky to reap those benefits here at Mothership Headquarters too! THANK YOU for bringing us all together even closer in love babes! #MADLOVE).

Mermaid 5k Anniversary

September 12, 2017

-
FIT SISTERS!!!
-
We cannot believe it’s almost been a year since our FIRST live event and the “unveiling” of THE MOTHERSHIP as you babes have so lovingly deemed us here at Fit Girl Headquarters. As we sit here thinking back on the Mermaid 5k, and all the excitement and love this past year, tears of joy and gratefulness flow down as we BLUBBER LIKE BABIES. It really has been one WILD ride with you wonderful women. When Fit Girls began back in 2014 we knew we had a talented team, some kick-ass recipes and killer workouts. But what we didn’t know we had, were the fixings to set the foundation for the most epic community of self-loving, unicorn-riding mermaids this world has seen!!! And we wouldn’t have that without YOU. We created a guide that we truly believe in to show women that being healthy is not only attainable, but FUN (and delicious). But YOU created the community. And THAT is what makes Fit Girls so special.
-
Thank you again (and again and again) for every day that you support the Fit Girl Community. Because in doing so you support our dream to keep spreading Fit Girl love near and far, to continue meeting new Fit Sisters who will encourage and inspire a chain reaction of LOVE and FIERCENESS that is changing the damn world.
-
SO HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of meeting some of the most incredible women. Here’s to many more events, meet-ups, and FIT GIRLS!!! MAD LOVE!!!! We are celebrating by holding a massive virtual #FitGirls5k on October 5th! This will be the first week of the next Group Challenge which we are SO PUMPED for! Grab your Mermaid 5k Anniversary packet and join in! This event is happening two days before the EPIC #FitGirlMeetUp happening at Huntington Beach on October 7th. Let’s ALL join in the Fit Girl spirit, celebrate our sisterhood, and send positive vibes for all our girls who are traveling and attending the Cali meet up! LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

Dark Hearted Mermicorns

Dark Hearted Mermicorns

HOLLAAAA!!! May we present to you the Dark Heart Crest Tank!!!! We are SO excited for this design as it’s very close to our hearts at Mothership Headquarters. 

It was commissioned after we decided to pull the trigger on our very first event… the #Mermaid5k!! And believe it or not it’s actually inspired by our old gym shirts! They had our school’s crest with a banner and that’s where kids used to write their names. (OH how we dreaded putting them on back in the day, dingy and blue, unwashed for way too long… who knew what they would later inspire!!!)

So we designed a Fit Girl Crest, a magical one equal parts mermaid and unicorn, and we give to you the Dark Heart Crest Tank, wear it proudly and spread MAGIC everywhere you go! Click here to get yours.
