Good morning! First, let’s talk about my workout yesterday. Strength training is super important and I have been a little slacking on it so instead of a run, I decided I would do a DVD. I love Bob Harper’s Inside Out method series of DVDs. These are not for the weak, they really kick my butt every time. Bob’s Workout was no different! I just tried Workout 1 – Upper Body and boy was it killer! I couldn’t even keep up and I was sweating buckets by the end – and only a half hour!!
In this DVD, Bob acts as your trainer as a single girl demonstrates the workout. The moves are ones that you could easily do in a gym. You really don’t need the DVD. You could write down each move and do it anywhere/anytime. I loved that about this workout. You will need at least 2 sizes of dumbbells and 3 kettle bells (you could use 3 different dumbbells for this too). He also uses a step but it was hard enough for me doing it on the floor! It was also over before I knew it. That could be because I’m used to the Insanity VDs at 45-55 minutes each. Overall, I really loved this DVD and plan on using it regularly! Can’t wait to try workout 2 – lower body but with how sore I am today, I’m a little afraid of it to!
I also finally tired So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Ice Cream last night in Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl. I really had a hankering for ice cream and no other foods would satisfy it (I ate an apple, a nectarine, and blueberries first!!). The verdict? It does the same evil things to my digestion as real ice cream. It must be all the sugar. So I might as well have the real stuff. It was very good though. It has a very strong coconut flavor at first but then you get used to it after a few bites and you can taste the other flavors. The texture is also excellent, very similar to real ice cream. If you need to make the switch, this is a pretty darn good option. Also, if you are wondering if your store carries any of their products, there is a store locater on their website. Very handy!
I’m stressing out a bit over one more topic but I can’t seem to get my thoughts together on it today so I’m going to leave you with a quote.
What are your opinions on it? What about healthy living bloggers? They can’t be silent on what they eat. Am I being preachy about the Paleo Diet? Are you tired of hearing about it? Should I continue to eat the way I do but not use the word “Paleo”? Thoughts?
