How do I get through the winter with energy? I work out. Lets be honest, it’s hard to sit at a swim meet and watch these teenage girls swim like crazy when I haven’t done anything but squeeze into jeans that somehow got smaller. It’s so easy to pack on the pounds in the winter by drinking delicious Hoegarden Beers at Jack’s Wife Frieda while feasting on beet dip. Or drinking Bloody Marys at Burger & Barrel and snacking on their brusell sprouts thats taste like candy. All this food talk, is making me nervous, will I have to wear leggings all winter until Spring comes? NO! While I was vacationing in Miami at the W Hotel, I went exploring and found my way to the gym. The owners trainer was there waiting, and I asked him if he’d help me out with some exercises. I have very bad lower back issues, and sometimes I can’t even get out of bed He taught me some exercises for my back that actually built up my abs so Id have a strong core. I’m not the greatest at these exercises, but I’m trying! Send me your favorite exercises. We can’t let Mother Nature take her course that quickly, I’m just starting to feel my stride. And I have to be in shape for my pending mid-life crisis! I can make you HOT and fit.
