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 not so good experience in a chiropractor’s office

June 13, 2014

I had never thought much about visiting a chiropractor. It’s something that had never crossed my mind until several weeks ago. I was enjoying an outdoor festival and was approached about a chiropractic screening with the promise of a free hydro massage so reluctantly I gave my information. A few days later I received a […]

FED UP

May 9, 2014

While checking emails today I ran across one that I thought was just spam. Upon closer inspection I had run upon a rare gem. It was an email advertising a movie called FED UP. The movie is about revealing food industry lies.  Looks like we’ve been hoodwinked, bamboozled, and all at the sake of our […]

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 […]

The Four Agreements of Working Out

January 17, 2014

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz was one of my favorite reads of 2013.  It seemed like everyone I know had read the book but me so I decided to dive in myself to see what the buzz was about. I read it and loved it! Based on traditional Toltec beliefs, the author, who […]
