About a year ago I made the switch from Fitnessblender to Cathe


Fitnessblender is AWESOME!  and FREE!!!  If you are wanting to start a workout program and feel lost.  Go here!  They are super smart and can get you on track with easy exercises that require only dumbbells.  You can totally pick those up at a Walmart while you're grocery shopping! The paid programs are worth the cheap price.  I bought almost all of them and enjoyed them!

I left because I had reached my full potential with them.  It wasn't challenging anymore and I craved more!  I wanted more versatility in my workouts and more of a push even if I had to pay for it!

Who is Cathe?

Cathe Friedrich is a fitness instructor and has been making workout dvd's (and VHS lol) for almost 2 decades.  She is BIG into encouraging home workouts.  No machines required to get fit and her body proves it!  I like her because she's fun!  She has 450 different workouts to choose from.  She does everything from step aerobics, dumbbells, HIIT, Cardio, Barre, Kickboxing...Just to name a few.  She was inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame so she kinda knows a thing or two!

450 Workouts? Sounds Expensive?

It's really not!  I do everything online.  I don't buy the DVD's.  I pay $20 a month and have access to everything she's made (even the stuff from the 80's) and she has LIVE workout at her gym in Jersey every Thursday.  I can workout LIVE with her and have access to all the past LIVE workouts she's ever done!  Never and opportunity to get bored!  Right now I am about to complete her STS series that has taken 3 1/2 months to complete.  It's a strength building and muscle growing program!  I have throughly enjoy it!

How do I sign up?

Go here to sign up to for OnDemand Cathe Live.  You'll be officially known as a Cathlete for life!  There is a great Facebook page too!  Do a search and look me up :)

Best of luck and Happy Lifting!

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

My allergic reaction to jalapeños

****** If you are having an intense burning from cutting jalapeños and found this blog on the web, scroll to the bottom.  I have labeled what you need to do!!!

It was Saturday afternoon. I had a wonderfully planned party at my house for 6pm. I diligently cleaned all day. I had let my house go, so a deep clean was in order. I was saving all my cooking for the last hour of the party so everything would be warm. It was 5pm and I was ready to cook. Being 6 months pregnant, the breaking back work of cleaning had almost done me in, but it was worth it. The house looked great. I planned to make a few dishes, but my star dish was 'Jalapeno Poppers'. I had them in restaurants in the past, but never made them. I got the recipe off a Facebook page. She hand typed it (no blog or star winning website) so it was simple instructions.
I destemmed, cut them length wise and deseeded 15-20 jalapenos. Followed the rest of the instructions and into the oven they went. I decided to sho…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  


**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
