Is working out with your man a good idea or nah?

August 22, 2014

Five weeks ago my husband, Andre, and I started doing P90X together. I had done it alone several years ago and it took me about that long to sell him on the idea of joining me. I love P90X but always thought the workouts were too long, especially the Yoga X, 90 minutes in length, […]

MY NEXT NEW THING

July 18, 2014

I have an intense hungering for anything fitness, health or beauty related. Don’t judge me; I just like knowing what’s going on in that field. I am officially a self- diagnosed “information junkie.” Processing and gathering information is like a high for me. In fitness, I’m always up to trying something new. A few years […]

Mission Accomplished

April 18, 2014

March, 30, 2014 marked the end of my 28 day journey on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I lost a total of 7 pounds and while that might not seem significant to most it made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. The more you weigh the more you […]

Fast Metabolism Diet-Week Three

March 21, 2014

As I near the end of week three on the Fast Metabolism Diet by Hayle Pomroy, I can’t help but note a significant difference in the way my body feels. Not only am I 6 lbs. lighter but I feel energetic and confident. I don’t feel tempted or controlled by food any longer and Phase […]

So tell me what you really think about home video workouts: ChaLEAN EXtreme? Part III

March 14, 2014

I bet by now you guys think I’m crazy and maybe a bit confused because I’ve tried so many different Beachbody workouts and counting. Let me start by saying that I am always looking for something new and different as I am easily bored. I would chalk that up to my self-diagnosis of Attention Deficit […]

March 7, 2014

On, Monday, March 3, I started the Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy.  My beginning weight was 159. So far I’ve completed 4 full days. The first 2 days was Phase I, where you can eat lots of good carbs, veggies and proteins.  If you are a fruit lover then you will be in diet […]

THE LAST DIET

February 28, 2014

I’ve jumped on many diet bandwagons, fell off, got back on and kept riding. I have been a human guinea pig for so many fad diets that I realize that I never focused on the process only the end results therefore I missed the education and pleasure of the journey. The very first diet I […]

What’s your workout style?

February 21, 2014

I don’t know about you but my “go to” is cardio. I literally have to make myself hit the weights even though I know how important resistance training is. There is always a sense of dread for me with weight training. I guess it requires more thought and effort. Begrudgingly I make the effort because […]

True Confessions….

February 14, 2014

My name is Venus Styles and I am a grocery store addict. I don’t recall when it all started, but if I had to guess I would say about 3 years ago. Yes, that sounds about right. It happened when I fell in love with Doctor Oz , Dr. Ian Smith, Dr. Andrew Weil and […]
