What I say vs what I do: I mentioned 2013 was going to be the year of the 5k for me. No more LSD….yeah right. What races have I signed up for so far? 3 half marathons.
Back to the gym: I finally made it to my first spin class of the year. The parking lot was so packed I could have used a shuttle bus to get to the door. Yet 10 minutes before class began, the cycle studio was almost empty. I think they’re all in SYNO yoga. The class eventually filled but still, no scratching and clawing like those yogis.
Treats I hate to love: As if Powerberries weren’t enough, now Trader Joe’s has Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels. Total sweet tooth crack. I’m just now wedging myself back into my jeans after our recent gluttonous adventure on the high seas, aka cruise. Maybe this is why I have my schedule stacked with half marathons. Have you tried these?

Shower Pill: You all know I’ve been going to hot vinyasa flow (or as I like to say ‘sweat your nuts off, or SYNO ) yoga for a couple of weeks now. I was beginning to think when I survived the 3rd class that things were looking up and SYNO was no longer impossible. Alas today my booty was kicked once again. Having grunting dudes on 3 sides (what are the odds?) did nothing to enhance the ohm factor either. It’s such a sweat fest. That’s a good thing, except that I need to get to the ice rink quickly after, leaving no time to shower. Enter the Shower Pill.
Shower Pill is a moist, washcloth-size, disposable body wipe designed for athletes but perfect for everyone from busy professionals to weekend warriors. I brought a whole mess of them to class today and was instantly the most popular yogi in the room!
- Contains aloe vera and Vitamin E
- Kills 99.9% of all germs
- Dries quickly with no sticky residue
- Alcohol- and Paraben-free
I can’t help but think ahead to next summer after sweltering hot trail runs how good one of these will feel, especially out of the cooler! Shower Pill is available at Amazon and sells for $9.99/box.

1st Step Wellness Liquid B12 Complex: I was highly skeptical when I agreed to try this out. I feared I’d be a jittery mess. I was pleasantly surprised. This is not a caffeine shot. It’s a B12 supplement in easily-absorbed liquid form.
- Helps convert food into energy
- Stimulant and caffeine free
- Contains no gluten, lactose, sodium, or trans fats
I tried a 6-day supply. By the second day I noticed in the afternoon, usually my witching hour when I either want to raid the pantry or take a nap, I felt like I wanted to work out, even though I had already worked out that morning. I felt that fresh and energetic. I tried Tropical Blend and Cherry Charge: both were pleasant tasting. Not medicinal at all. Be sure to enter the Pro Wellness Great Taste Challenge for a chance to win a year’s supply! And because the Pro Wellness peeps are extra nice, here’s a coupon as well!

Ruby Red Chai Tea: My new nutrition guru has me off of caffeine. I’ve traded my daily cup of joe for tea. So far it’s all good. As long as I have a hot mug of something I am happy…kind of… I think I may treat myself to coffee once a week. Anyway this ruby red concoction from Trader Joe’s is nicely spiced and naturally caffeine free. I dig it.
