Fountain of Youth #Juice Recipe

This juice contains all of the fruits and veggies I simply enjoy to consume otherwise.  There are so many minerals and vitamins, this is bound to put a little pep in your step and keep it going at ANY age.  Age is a mind thing, but this juice, when consumed regularly, is guaranteed to make sure your body stays informed about the age you think ...

Yummmm #Peppers!

Do You Miss Me #Workout

Unfortunately my trainer is out of town for the next 2 weeks while she galavants all over the country with her dance company.  I ain't mad tho.  Gave me a chance to go to boot camp today and I plan to do the following workout which she sent me while on the road.

Junk Food Facts

I know the no junk food challenge is well...challenging for many of us especially since it is all around us.  It is also very affordable and cheap so temptation is very tempting.  Next time you consider partaking in junk food think about these images.       Stay strong and fill your body with more real food every day ...

Boot Camp Saturday

  Hi everyone!  Today started off as a wonderful day.  Why you ask?  Because Sanders Optimum Fitness offerred a Saturday 1-hour session for $20 for those of us not enrolled in the September session.  It was great to be able to participate again at a fraction of the cost of an entire session. My sister neighbor picked me up so we could ...

FFFC #Challenge #18: No Junk Food

This challenge will require WILL POWER vs. the physical ability to lift, jump, squat, roll or press.  The mind is a powerful thing and if not properly prepared, you are defeated before ever beginning this challenge.  Do your body proud and embrace this challenge with ZEST! My only caveat with this challenge is, as long as you are consuming all ...

GIT IT #Workout

I worked out two days in a row.  Not just any ol' workout but hit the weights twice back-to-back.  I normally don't do that.  It was good.  We primarily worked the upper body today since the lower body was worked yesterday.  I normally am a little more chatty with Heather at least during my rest periods but today I was in thought.  What was ...

Back In Stride #Workout

You know what?  I missed the gym while at boot camp.  I mean boot camp was fantabulous and I plan to do it again but the gym is where its at.  Every time I get an opportunity to push weight I feel stronger than the time before.  I get to work out with Heather and she continues to challenge me.  I like that. This was today's workout!  Try ...

Items That Contain Meat

I definitely believe the saying ignorance is bliss.  So much information out there and our plan it to share as much with you as possible so you can make your own decisions.  I eat meat and do not find meat eaters to be offensive but it is good we be aware of what we put in our bodies. Make informed choices.  Peace.

Parabens

Who doesn't use deodorant in this day and age.  Actually if you fail to do so you might get some strange stares ESPECIALLY in the gym or fitness class.  At the same time there are several studies and results linking deodorant to breast cancer.  Pretty scare if you ask me.  Do what you need to do to protect you and your health. Stay healthy.

Detox Day 9

Drum roll please.........day 9 of the detox (actually I lost count) but BOY oh BOY what a rush!  I mean it is interesting to take a shot and get an energy boost that lasts more than an hour.  The bitter taste takes a little to get used to but now I can take my shot with no problem.  The bitter taste no longer bothers my taste buds. My body ...
