Health Fix: What I'm (Kinda) Loving Right Now
Madonna is the body bomb dot com (have you seen her arms???) so I thought I'd try it and shake up my normal fitness routine. Barre 3 combines three exercises I am familiar with: Yoga (I do it once a week), Pilates (I'm a certified Mat Instructor) and Ballet (I did it for 12+ years) using a barre to develop the "length of a dancer and strength of an athlete." However this DVD was made for home use or while you're on the road so you don't need a barre, all you need is a chair, some small weights (or soup cans like I used last week, true story) and a fitball which is provided with the disc. Even though I consider myself a pretty fit person at first I couldn't get through the work-out without angrily cursing and grunting at my television and the instructor. This work-out isn't easy folks, and there are soooo many reps but after doing it once a week for a couple of months I am almost getting through it without having to use the F Word or other nasty expletives. Can I get a "yay?"
here for $19.99 USD which I think is very reasonable. What's your fitness routine? Do you have one?
Something else I'm kinda loving:
Zevia All-Natural Diet Soda. When I mentioned in this post that I was a Diet Pepsi Addict, B. from City Cinders recommended I replace my bad habit with this zero-calorie drink. Although it's not as good as "real" diet pop, these soda's totally quench my thirst and I feel great that I'm no longer damaging my stomach drinking aspartame.They come in 6 different flavors; Black Cherry's my fave ; ) The downside is that they're way more expensive than other brands at $1.67 a can but I get a small discount when I buy a flat at the organic foods store near my home.

Have a great Hump Day! We're halfway through the week ladies!
