I'm not a big juicer. When I travel I will sometimes add in some green juices as a way to totally rock the placebo effect and feel healthier. But I'm not a huge proponent of an all juice detox. It's just not my thing. My liver is a great detoxed and a diet full of whole foods and fiber works for me. I did, however this week realize that way before juicing was a fad there was v8. I like v8. I probably drink it 2-3 times per week. I pick the low sodium variety and use it as a light snack between breakfast and lunch.
Old school juicing. No not like that.
Most of you probably are not HUGE fans of burpees. Who is really? Well Kyle and I are definitely NOT team burpees. In fact we labeled them on of the least effective exercises in a recent online article interview.
I am a fan of probiotics, because they help keep your gut happy. A happy gut is a crucial part of being a happy human. If you regularly take probiotics or are thinking about it I recommend this article about "5 Probiotic Myths". Probiotics...more than just Activia! :)

The news has been coming out for a while now that sitting is bad for you. I've heard that it's as bad as smoking, but I highly encourage you to read this article. New research is showing that yes, sitting is bad, BUT even exercising can't undo the damage that sitting does. Wow!
