Ya Gotta Tabata!

Have you been trying to burn those few extra pounds that you packed on over the holidays? If you are looking for some motivation, these websites should do the trick!

What is Tabata? Tabata is a type of high intensity cardio workout in the form of interval training. If you have a treadmill, you can incorporate Tabata into your workout to intensify your workout and burn more calories. SKINNY MS has a great Tabata on the treadmill program, which is sure to rev up your metabolism. This website also has other great fitness tips, and great menu planning ideas including many “skinny” and lo-cal recipes.

Looking to target a specific problem area? The Canadian website DIVINE lets you pick your problem area, and then gives you specific movements and exercises to target that body part.

Winter Review ~ Cobble Jockey Hat

Years ago I came across this super cute hat at a local retail store. It was the perfect shade of cream. {This is by far my favorite hat EVER!} I get compliments every time I wear it, and it goes with everything. Although the picture does not do it justice, it fits perfect, it keeps my head warm and it does NOT flatten my hair (so NO hat head afterwards!). Not only does it adorn a cute buckle, but the inside is lined with a beautiful paisley silk. If I had known how much I was going to wear and LOVE it, I would’ve bought 3 of them in every color before they disappeared from the store…….but thank God for THE VILLAGE HAT SHOP, because I have now been able to add a black one to my winter wardrobe. And right now if you order and spend $50.00 or more you can get $5.00 off by entering COMMUNITY5.
