Gotta Get That Protein
LaFitterina: I can generally count on my outings to the gym to provide both inspiration and perspiration, and today was no exception. I had a grueling (not really) 2 hour workout, including some cardio — elliptical and treadmill, during which I read the first few chapters of a promising book “Waiting for Snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy” by Carlos Eire— followed by a barre class, and closing out with stretches on a roller.
But the best part was encountering this on a guy’s T-shirt:
I don’t know about you, but that brought on shivers and a cold sweat, as well as making me mighty curious. You can bet that I headed to Google as soon as I got home. I was rewarded with lots of web-info and probably mis-info, and I found this enlightening video:
Finding Life Healthy
Mizzfit: Yet another week bites the dust, but I did find out some interesting facts about apple cider vinegar – which purports to be very beneficial, but is it really…The BBC put out an article detailing a few experiments to test the health claims, and what I took away was that apple cider vinegar can help keep cholesterol down and block sugars from being absorbed. I’m excited to try it out, and test the BBC’s truth – will definitely keep you posted.
I also came across this great video from Tone It Up who featured pro surfer, Sage Erickson, showing a few exercises she does to keep in shape. I especially like the ones where you pop up like you’re on a surfboard – I tried them out, and yes I felt a mite silly, but by the end I was out of breath! Cheers to trying new things and spicing up the weekend!
Apple cider vinegar will dissolve the enamel off your teeth if you skip rinsing with water after drinking it.
