New Year, New Me!

You've probably heard this one before :) I am seriously trying though to be more healthy in my eating and upping my trips to the Y this year. All 4 kids are in school so I am running out of excuses here. Here are a couple of steps I am taking to the new and improved me :)

I joined a class at my YMCA called "The Circuit" it meets once a week for 45 minutes and my favorite spin instructor is running it. You basically go through a series of 12-14 exercise cycles (twice) and do each for 20 - 30 seconds until she calls time and then you switch to the next one. It combines weights, cardio and floor exercises. Sounds easy, right? That's what I thought.... it's not. I am in week 2 now and am SORE. I do love it though!! This is a random pic, but you get the idea... ours is not set up in a circle thank God!

Keeks recommended this cleanse she found at Whole Foods put out by their 365 line.
It sells for about 18 dollars and is a series of vitamins and fiber that you take for 2 weeks and it is supposed to remove toxins from your system. I really like it!! I haven't lost a single pound on it but still feel better for some reason!

There are quite a lot of capsules to take and I am not going to lie... they are big and there are quite a few to take. I choked them down for the first 4 days but then it got easier.

Just for a size reference here's a nickel next to these super sized fiber capsules

and here's how many you take every night for week one! Ay carumba!

Good news is, I feel better and might even look better! See for yourself.....

Another fun time waster! Cheers to good health! xo, Brie

I want that cleanse! It looks way more do-able than getting a colonic.(scary!!!)
I'm getting out the old stationary bike tomorrow.
