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.

Traveling has the power to mess up a workout routine like no other. I walk into an airport and all I seem to want to do is eat. I sit on an airplane and all I seem to want to do it eat. Then, I land in a new city with new restaurants and . . . all I seem to want to do it eat! The goal when I travel is the maintain my weight. I even go far as to bring my scale. While I realize it is vacation and I can be a little lenient with my diet, I can negate a weeks worth of workouts and disciplined eating in about 2-3 days on vacation. There is nothing worse than getting home, realizing how much weight you have gained, and having to work it all off again.
