Post Snow Shovelling Yoga Flow #snowmageddon2015

How is everyone doing after #Snowmageddon2015? Still trying to dig yourself out, or did you manage to get away with little to no snow? Since I was snowed in yesterday I figured it was the perfect opportunity to record a little yoga flow for you that you can do after all the shovelling, or really anytime your low back is acting a bit cranky.

Ironically I slipped on some ice last week and my back is still a bit cranky so this was a great routine for me to do anyway!

Making 2015 #CoolerWithAlmondBreeze

I’m very excited today to be sharing with you that I have been selected as part of the #CoolerWithAlmondBreeze Blogger Program in Canada! As part of the program I will be using Almond Breeze Almond Milk in my recipes, and of course blogging about it over the next 30 days.

Almond milk has become a staple in our home the past 6 months or so since J discovered that drinking cow’s milk bothers his digestive system. At first he used it just for his cereal and drinking, but we’ve now moved on and are using it in place for cows milk in recipes too. Now don’t get me wrong, we still have regular milk in the house, but we definitely are using more almond milk than regular milk these days. So when I found out I’d been chosen for part of this program I was really thrilled. As an existing consumer of Almond Breeze it’s always fun when you get to help promote a product you already know you enjoy!

The excitement doesn’t stop there however, because you can bet your bottom dollar Suzi was hopping back and forth in excitement when she saw the courier man arriving yesterday afternoon with a box full of goodies! Check out all the awesome things Almond Breeze sent to help me stay healthy in 2015!

What To Expect At Your First Zumba Class

You want to go to a Zumba class, you think it would be fun but…you’re scared. You won’t know what to do, you’re horribly uncoordinated, people will laugh at you, and you think you might die. That about cover it? Well I’m here to tell you you’re dead wrong.


Concern #1: You Won’t Know What To Do:

Your first concern is a valid one, you probably won’t know what to do all of the time. But the beauty of a Zumba class (when taught by a good instructor) is that the routines are easy to follow, so you catch on really quickly! The first 5-10 minutes will be the worst because that is when you are trying to figure out your instructors way of cueing. Most Zumba

No More Cheat Days!!

Yup, you read that correctly, no more cheat days. Zero. Zilch. None.


But it’s not what you think. It’s not the cheat day or meal that I have an issue with, it’s the word “cheat”.
