New Product

I'm not really sold on Weight Watchers candy but some people love them. Here are some of their new offerings I found in Walmart.

Do HIIT Workouts really work?


I recently started lifting free weights and I absolutely love it. I can actually see a change in my body, most of all my arms and shoulders. Most of the lifting I do right now is upper body and it is absolutely been life changing. I have grown bored with the treadmill and elliptical, plus I wanted to take my weight loss up a notch. After a little research I discovered HIIT Workouts. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. It's goal is to maximize fat burning and muscle building. The workouts last anywhere from 5 to 40 minutes. When doing this you do a series of exercises full effort with a minimum of 10 second to a maximum of 30 second breaks. By having the rest intervals, you spend more time at a higher level of aerobic capacity. Unfortunately they are not offered in my gym but I found two great ones on YouTube that I love.


I have only been doing these a week and not really consistently. I plan to get back on schedule soon doing these four days a week. I'll keep ya'll updated on my progress. Has anyone tried this? What do you think? n

Marketside's Yogurt Parfait with Diced Apples


I think I found my new guilty pleasure. While perusing the aisles at Walmart I ran across a tasty looking treat. The combination of vanilla yogurt, apples and sweetened granola just sounded like it tasted amazing! Plus it was a big serving that could be divided if I so desired. I shelled out the $2.74 for this dairy delight and I must say I am beyond impressed! The yogurt was just the right creaminess and mixed with the tart apples and sweet granola it was seriously addictive. Any one of the toppings could be eaten separately but something about that combination mad me feel like I was being a bad, yet slightly healthy girl. Now I will say that the 330 calories seems high for me to eat in one sitting but I usually save this for a day I lifted my heavy weights and I don't feel live I've really fallen off of the wagon. There was one week where I purchased one every day but I have since scaled back. I saw today that they now have a pineapple parfait, but I'm going to stick with the apple.

New Products

Cape Cod offers their Kettle Corn at just 40 calories a cup - not bad at all.              
I'm not a fan of any type of jerky plus these have sodium nitrates but some people don't mind. At 60 calories per piece takes could be a good snack.

New Product: Aquafina FlavorSplash

Aquafina's new offering in flavored water beverages doesn't seem to offer anything out of the ordinary but if I catch these on sale again at my local Food Lion I may pick some up. 



New Product: Ready To Go Snacks


Chips have been my downfall in my journey to better health. Even with the best intentions I start with just a few and go way beyond my limit.

 
I love the fact that these Baked Ruffles and Three Cheese Pretzel Thins are available in smaller sizes. These were at Walmart and I didn't see a price but I'll definitely go back to pick these up.
