As part of the New Year new you series I am looking at ways to get a work out in any way I can. Working out has always been a part of my life but took a back seat last year due to some personal circumstances . But getting back in “the Ring” as the say is feeling great . So I recently went to the Editors Showcase in NYC for nutritional foods and health. I found this fantastic free app called 7 minute work out by Johnson & Johnson . I  tried the original 7 minutes today ,it felt great ! And totally motivated me to continue for another 30 minutes .the workouts are led by Chris Jordan Director of Exercise Physiology  human Performance Institute Division of Wellness &  Prevention .This  app is  can track your progress , select workouts based on your fitness level and motivation levels. Are they tough?  Yes , you will get a full workout with with cardio and strength training . It’s portable on your devices and you can do it anytime you’ve got 7 minutes ! One of the best free workout apps I’ve come across . This is a keeper.

January is that time of year to start off on the right foot with your fitness resolutions. I had the chance to do just that with thanks to the folks at JCP (JCPenny) and Karina Smirnoff  at the New Year New You event  this week. Dancing with the Stars fav Karina Smirnoff her team were on hand to show us some moves to shed the pounds with high intensity fitness classes all day. The classes were dance inspired and heart pumping to get us moving. The day also included nutritional consultations and a mini style bar for blowouts and curls

My class started at 6pm and I am happy to say I had the opportunity  to wear some fun fitness gear from the new JC Penny collection of active wear.Breathable  and comfortable  fabrics in their tank tops kept us cool . JC Penny partnered with Karina  The colors were fashionable and fun as well. The whole line is affordable with pieces starting at $20!

 

Our class was so much fun! We danced ,jumped ,sweat and burned some calories.The post work out drinking consisted of fresh made organic fruit and veggie juices all made with Bella juicers and blenders. (sold at JC Penny also)

Afterwards I met Karina and got her tips on shedding those holiday pounds .

  • 1. Get moving and try a new workout. Try a class and do it  3 times before you decide to try something else.
  • 2. Eat healthier  with clean carbs  like apples
  • 3.Listen to your body . If you need sugar try frozen real fruit . Juice  or blend it then freeze to make a homemade sorbet
  • ( The Bella Bullet is great for this $40)

Are you getting your beauty zzzz’s …National Nap day is March 11th

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

You’ve heard it before .Americans are just not getting enough sleep . March 11th is National Nap Day and the start of Wellness Week . It’s the perfect opportunity to incorporate more sleep into your life via getting to bed earlier, or taking the afternoon nap. Studies have suggested that even a 10 minute nap can improve your effectiveness by day and prevent that 4pm sugar craving and late night snacking . Keep in mind that Daylight savings time is also around the corner with an hour less of your nights.

On another not why look at it as the perfect time to consider a new bed and your pledge to get more sleep off to a good start .And why not sleep like a king or queen on a custom bed? One company ,Hastens, designs custom made beds that created from only the finest, all-natural, sustainable materials . Clients can chose from horsehair, flax, Swedish pine, premium cotton, and wool—exquisitely layered by master craftsmen . The idea here is to make sure you rest on a breathable, supportive sleep surface. These beds are made entirely by hand taking upwards of 160 hours to create.

If your not in the market for a custom bed a sleep spa may be in the answer. Sleep by the minute at Yelo Spa (NYC)
If your not in the area check the web for nation sleep week events in your area. Sleep well !
