Fitness Friday: The Weighted Hula Hoop

Lately, I’ve written a lot of posts about fitness and not much else. I make no apologies for it. Working out has the power to change your body, your mindset, and your life. I never knew how much I could gain from being fit until I actually got into shape. Everyday, I find new ways to challenge myself in my workouts, creative ways to eat fewer calories, and marvel at the results.

Two weeks ago, I almost bought my mother a Roku for her birthday. Based upon the its description and the infrequency with which she watches TV, I decided against it.

An online ad for an internet monthly subscription service for workouts sounded like a joke. Always be skeptical, but change the way you think.

Fitness Friday:  The superdiva’s Fat Blasting Calorie Torching Kettlebell Treadmill Workout

Years ago, when I was first introduced to kettlebells by a personal trainer, I was really excited about them. I thought they were the coolest way to workout and I was convinced they would help me get in shape. I wasn’t wrong. It just took me another five years to actually do it. In my kettlebell excitement, I bought a kettlebell and a book, From Russia with Tough Love, on kettlebells for women. At the time, some of the exercises were too hard and I didn’t have the right equipment. I put the book on my bookshelf and forgot all about it.

Fitness Friday: Kettlebell Workouts on YouTube

For me, monotony is the enemy. My workouts consist of ways to challenge myself so I that don’t give up. It is hard sometimes. While googling “kettlebell workouts” I came across all kinds of workouts on YouTube. I’ve used YouTube for food prep tutorials, hair tips, and computer troubleshooting. It never occurred to me that they had everything I ever wanted to know!
