Nothing wrong with going back to the oldies! Even though thoughts on workouts and body movement has evolved over the years, some of the old workouts are still relevant and fun to revisit!
Change up your workout routine and try something new! Today we recommend Tiffany Rothe's Boxer Babe workout.
Sometimes it just plain hard to eat right, you just crave a burger. Well instead of over-indulging, think about how you can add a treat to healthier foods. This way you stay satisfied, but don’t regret anything later. Brussels Sprouts with Bacon are a great combination for this. Try the recipe below.
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Balsamic
· 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
· 4 ounces thick Canadian bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
· 1/3 cup olive oil
· 1 tablespoon syrupy balsamic vinegar
· 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a pan with foil. Combine the Brussels sprouts and bacon on the pan. Drizzle on the olive oil, and salt and pepper. Toss all ingredients together with your hands. Spread the mixture back out across the pan.
Cook the Brussels sprouts for 20 to 30 minutes. They should be browned and tender and the bacon should be crisped. Remove from the oven and drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top.
What an exciting Super Bowl! And not just because I was rooting for the Ravens, but it was an incredible weekend all around. New Orleans did an excellent job as hosts. The streets were packed with both 49ers and Ravens fans all weekend joyously chanting down Bourbon St, taking in all New Orleans has to offer.
The game itself was action packed. With a blow out beginning, the sea of purple Ravens’ fans in the stadium were going nuts. But after the power outage, it got eerily quiet on the Baltimore half of the field. Everyone had the same thought, this better not stop our momentum… and hindsight shows that Ravens’ fans were worried for good reason. The third quarter could not end fast enough for the Ravens. Fortunately they picked it back up again in the fourth. But the 49ers showed their power and played a great game. Kaepernick is off to a phenomenal start and we are excited to see where he goes. Meanwhile, we are sad to see Ray Lewis retiring, though he has had an incredible career and couldn’t be happier that he topped it off with a Super Bowl win.
It’s incredible what all of the NFL athletes put themselves through, and the diligence they have in their training schedules to stay healthy and fit despite all the potential for injury.
I want to share some pictures from the game, to give you a perspective from the seats. You’ll also see that the blackout wasn’t nearly as dark in the stadium as it appeared on TV. It was actually pretty well lit, which goes to show how much additional lighting the cameras need!
