A Few of My Favorite Things: an updated version :)

Hello Lovelies!

It’s Friday in my world and I thought it would be nice share some of the things that keep me on track and going no matter what life may throw at me. Ready to do some shopping? :)

Let’s GO!

1. When I’m down and out and just can’t hit the gym.

This is a bad case scenario for a competitor BUT we all go through it (or maybe we just hate the gym). Lately, I’ve been enjoying a few different home based workouts that have kept me on track and even helped to even things out a bit.

Turbo_Fire TURBO FIRE: this high intensity training program is helping shed the fat and keep me going strong. You can check it out at www.turbosister.com

PIYO PIYO: this all-in-one powerhouse workout has been incorporated into my weekly schedule due to an influx of inflammation and issues in my lower back and hip. This program has allowed me to continue to see results without killing an already warped body. I HIGHLY recommend it to ALL fitness levels. You can grab yours here as well: www.turbosister.com NOTE: I am no longer a Beach Body Coach, but still love the programs :)

CRN Come Ready Nutrition Bars are great for nutrition on the go and for those needing some extra protein in their diets, but not wanting to pick it out of their teeth later during the day ;) . Come ready Nutrition has affordable bars (you can get them at Costco for less than $1 a bar) and they truly are an excellent nutrition profile. The company is also hard at work to get our youth moving. You can find out more about them AND place your order here: www.comeready.com

Lindi skin Lindi Skin Care. Oh my goodness! This skin care line is beyond fabulous! Lindi Skin is extremely gentle to all skin types and works phenomenally well. I was a little leery about it since I am prone to breakouts, but it has actually helped to clear my skin. Lindi Skin uses the magic of oils and only the highest quality natural ingredients. My favorite product and a MUST for all is the Eye Hydrator. I have always struggled with dark circles and lines around my eyes and with Lindi has all but erased my lines and softened those circles right up. So even if I don’t feel my best, it doesn’t show :) PLEASE check them out here: www.lindiskin.com OR run by your local CVS and see if they have it in stock yet!

SPECIAL ALERT!!!!!! You can use the code BLOG25  for FREE shipping and 25% off all purchases at www.lindiskin.com now through May 31st. AND they will also make a donation to the American Cancer Society Look Good, Feel Better campaign.

What are you waiting for? Go grab your beautiful skin and do a world of good in the process.

That will wrap up my favorites of the moment. I am off to walk my daughter to school then come home and get some PIYO in :)

Take care of yourself and pass it along to others….the caring, not yourself. ;) Be smart, stay active, be alive!

New Feature: WORKOUT OF THE MONTH

A lot of visits here are for workout reviews. Why? Cause we want an honest opinion of what works!

In light of that fact, I am launching a brand new feature called WORKOUT OF THE MONTH.

This will feature a new workout each month, most home-based, that you can try out REAP the benefits and rewards.

So, for August (we’re close enough), HERE is my top pick:

PiYo DEFINE YOURSELF

With PiYo, you can carve an intensely defined physique without jumps, weights, or straining

your joints. Chalene Johnson’s innovative program is sure to bring you some exciting business

opportunities, so here are some key points to remember.

What is PiYo?

PiYo is a low-impact, high-intensity body-transformation program that uses the most

effective Pilates- and yoga-inspired moves to sculpt long, lean muscles and burn fat.

Trainer Chalene Johnson uses fluid movements, keeping you in constant motion to give

you a dynamic cardio workout that typical Pilates or yoga workouts lack.

It’s low-impact so you won’t have to jump around or strain your joints.

It’s high-intensity so you get the fat-burning results of a more extreme program.

It’s designed to help you get an intensely defined, long and lean physique.

Who is it designed for?

Women and men who:

Want to lose weight and burn fat without the high-impact jumps or complex

choreography found in some cardio programs.

Want to build lean muscle but don’t want to lift heavy weights or bulk up.

Want to get the results of an extreme program without straining their joints.

Like the benefits of Pilates and yoga, but also want the calorie burn of a cardio workout.

Don’t have time to go from class to class to do separate cardio, strength, and

flexibility workouts.

Want a workout that doesn’t require a lot of equipment.

Want to give their body a break from extreme programs but keep getting results and

improve their performance in other sports by restoring their flexibility and core strength.

What’s included?

8 workouts on 3 DVDs (25–45 minutes each)

1 bonus workout (25 minutes)

Quick Start Guide to help you start seeing results fast

Get Lean Eating Plan to make clean eating fit into your lifestyle

60-Day Workout Calendar shows you what workouts to do when

Tape measure to help track your progress

Exclusive! You will get a FREE bonus workout—Hardcore on the Floor (a

$19.95 USD value)—when they order through you

Why should you get Piyo?

To burn calories and fat and lose weight without high-impact cardio or complicated

choreography.

To build long, lean, intensely defined muscles without lifting heavy weights that can

cause added bulk.

To give joints a break from extreme programs but still maintain results.

• To improve core strength and flexibility and improve athletic performance.

To get the benefits of Pilates and yoga without the stillness of yoga and repetitive

nature of Pilates.

To get the benefits of a strength, cardio, and flexibility program all in each workout,

without having to find the time to go to different classes.

To enjoy a new program from their favorite trainer Chalene Johnson.

How does PiYo work?

PiYo isn’t like standard Pilates and yoga classes that make you hold long, intense poses, or

lead you through dozens of repetitive, microscopic core movements. PiYo speeds everything

up—including your results—by introducing you to dynamic, flowing Pilates- and yoga-inspired

sequences that can burn serious calories at the same time as they lengthen and tone your

muscles and increase your flexibility. As you progress from one fluid movement to the next

without rest, you’ll maintain an optimal heart rate to incinerate calories throughout the whole

workout!

With every action-packed PiYo session, you’ll burn excess fat and sculpt and define your whole

body, as you minimize the aches and pains that can come along with high-impact workouts.

The result? You get a low-impact, high-intensity, total-body workout, giving you a physique that’s

long, lean, and powerfully defined.

My results have been phenomenal! I feel stronger and it is making all of my other workouts more effective. I’ve also lessened injuries and have begun to heal from old ones. The workouts are short enough for busy schedules OR for weirdos like me that like to work out like all day :)

Define yourself,
