A Giveaway for YOU!

A YOU Revolution!

This weekend at Infinity Fitness (the gym I train at), We kick off our annual New Year, New You weight loss challenge.  This challenge is an 8 week program that includes a body composition analysis and consultation with a personal trainer, a 1 hour bootcamp, various nutrition and fitness seminars and on the final day (March 9th) we have our final weigh-in and a healthy potluck.  It's so much fun and we've seen people get amazing results that last because of the lifestyle changes that they've implemented and have been able to maintain.  Why am I rambling on and on about this...because one of you are going to get to participate in the challenge for FREE!!  Just comment (about anything!) at the end of this blog and one of you will be randomly selected.  If you don't win, but still want to join the fitness revolution, the cost is $40 for the 8 week program.

What to eat?

I thought you may have seen enough of my pureed diet, so instead of telling you about what I'm eating today, let me tell you about what I want to be eating.  I'm looking forward to this:

This is an Asian kale and tofu salad from Clean Eating.  This is a great recipe to try if you are interested in trying tofu but aren't really sure how to prepare it.  This is a mega superfood salad, so try it ASAP!  I hear that flu season is here in full force, so keep your immune system in top shape!  Click here to see why kale is a nutritional rockstar!

Easing into Yoga

Have you gotten your head in the game yet for the upcoming Yoga challenge?  Have you tried corpse pose yet?  Today I want to introduce a pose that you can practice at the end of your workouts.  It is a great one to use stretch the outer hips and thighs as well as the chest and shoulders.  It also offers a gentle spinal twist to help elongate the spine.  It is called Half Lord of the Fishes pose.  Click here for a link to a demonstration from Yoga Journal on how to practice this posture.

Don't forget to leave a comment below if you want to be entered for a chance to win free registration for the New Year, New You Challenge!  If you have questions about the challenge, just let me know!
