What I Worked:
I’ve been making a conscious effort lately to incorporate more strength and lifting in to my workouts. During the Summer I get the cardio bug because of the nice weather and tend to neglect my strength training. But thanks to Midwest fit and a bit of my own creativity, I’ve been able to come up with some circuits that I like! Here’s my latest:
What I Have for You:
I mentioned a few posts back about maybe starting a Blogger PostSecret project….a lot of you expressed interest so I thought I would get it started! It’s pretty simple. If you have a secret that you have been wanting to get out but want to do it anonymously, leave it on my formspring page. Then once I get a good amount of secrets I will do a wrap up post and post them! If we get weekly interest in doing this type of thing I can make it a staple on the blog! I think it will be kind of fun! Like I said when I sent my secret into the actual PostSecret, it was so freeing. It felt so good to just get something off my chest without any fear of repercussions. Just being able to get something out in the world was really nice.
So head on over here if you feel like getting something off your chest.
And another lil’ something for you all….
You might have heard that Conscious Box is rolling out a brand new ALL VEGAN monthly subscription box in addition to the other subscriptions they offer! Well, since I’ve reviewed for them in the past they contacted me and offered to give one of my readers one of their new boxes…packed with vegan snacks, vegan household items, and vegan beauty products!
From the company:
“Conscious Box has teamed up with Brendan Brazier, former pro Ironman triathlete, bestselling author of Thrive, and formulator of Vega. Brendan Brazier is known as a top authoritative source for the vegan, plant-based diet, and has used his experiences to help create one of the most incredible Conscious Box experiences yet!”
Leave me a comment telling me if you are interested in the Blogger PostSecret project.
And of course, any of the other usual means of entry!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
Today’s Healthy Help: I gave a lady directions while I was walking Ella! She stopped me in her car to ask where a local store was and I happily pointed her in the right direction .
