Yoga 2 feet above the ground? I gotta try this!

You want me to do what?? I thought I had done every exer­cise out there.  Weights, yoga, Pilates, hik­ing, bik­ing, moun­tain climb­ing, med­i­cine balls, danc­ing and every­thing in between.  I was hardly pre­pared for what I would expe­ri­ence at my first Anti Grav­ity Yoga class. Wait…doesn’t Anti Grav­ity tech­ni­cally mean “with­out” grav­ity?  Yes, and obvi­ously here on […]

 

No weights, no gym, no problem!

I have to admit, when I first heard about being able to work­out at your desk or at work I shrugged my shoul­ders and said, “yeah, what­ever”. Then  I tried it and was sur­prised at the results.

 

Those who dealt it, felt it.

8 Glasses Of Water A Day? Really? Yes, really.

We’ve heard it all before, either from mom, grandma, or some health guru telling us to drink more water every day. Eight glasses of water a day has always been a sort of guide­line but never really a sci­en­tific fact, but don’t drop that water bot­tle just yet.

 

Will a dozen eggs a day keep the gas away?

August 28th, 2013  Let me intro­duce myself.  I am a diet addict.  I tend to be a lit­tle on the lazy side with my gym work­outs.  I like to cook if the Hubbs does it for me and cleans up after­ward.  I just kind of scut­tle about the kitchen, mov­ing things from one counter to […]
