  4. Why you should avoid sodas

    December 10, 2012 by Kristin

    Why you should avoid sodas, there can be up to 22 packets of sugar in a serving.  Sugar can not only cause you to gain weight but also it can cause diabetes.

  6. Stair master workout

    August 27, 2012 by Kristin

    I was at the gym the other day and I couldn’t bring myself to get on the treadmill.  Everyone has those days when you just feel like you can’t run another mile.  So I decided to use the stair master and do some interval training.

    This is the workout that I did:

    Stair master for 10 minutes

    • alternating every 30 second of a “work” rate and a “rest” rate

    Weight routine: (I used 15 lbs)

    • 15 push-ups
    • 15 bicep curls
    • 15 tricep kickbacks
    • 15 over head shoulder press
    • 20 LOW squats

    I repeated this 3x’s and the time honestly flew by!

  10. Great Way to Start Your Day!

    August 1, 2012 by Kristin

    This has to be one of my favorite breakfasts, an egg on top of a 100 calorie veggie patty and 1/2 of a 100 calorie bun, so its really only 50 calories.  Total calories of this meal: 220!  Its filling and satisfying.

    I recommend buying veggie patties from Whole Foods.  This brand has a half serving of veggies, lots of fiber and protein, and low in calories.
