Fitness Find – The Challenge Box

Happy FRIDAY!!!!

How was everyone’s week?? I am still in a tug a war battle with inspiration and motivation. Lately it has been a little harder to get the words and ideas in my head onto the computer. I know being sick did not help but it is time to break out of this and get sharing again!! Does this sound familiar to anyone?? How did you get out of it?? I usually leave the questions for the end of the post but it has been on my mind, and obviously left the blog a ghost town for a few weeks! Let me know!!

When I received my Fitbit Charge HR for my birthday I was so excited to have a heart rate monitor for my workouts, to see how many steps I actually walk in a day and just to be apart of the fitness technology world! And let me tell you it has not been a disappointment. Continue reading “Fitness Find – The Challenge Box”

One of my birthday gifts was my new Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Wristband
and I. Love. It. I love wearing it now during my workouts. It gives me extra motivation and helps push me to my limits. Although I always try hard in class, this new device helps me get the MOST out of my workouts!

Starbucks Hack #32

Earlier this year I had my first Spinach and Feta wrap from Starbucks and it immediately made my “most ordered” list. It was the perfect size and at only 250 calories it didn’t make me feel like all my hard work from an early morning gym class was cancelled out before noon. Now that I have a little more free time on my hands, I set out to recreate this wrap and I finally mastered it! (It even got the stamp of approval from my other half this afternoon!) Here you go!
