|Dear Fitness Friend and Life Enthusiast,
Welcome to March Madness! This
is the month spring arrives in LA and I am feeling bubbly and filled with sun energy!
I'm sure some of you in Sweden or on the East Coast are making ugly faces at me now. But let me tell you, spring is coming your way in a few months, too. While you're waiting for the snow to thaw outside your window, there is
the fabulous world of PREP! What if you could create energy
right smack in the middle of the darkness and cold, just by using a
few easy techniques each day?
I hope this month's newsletter will help you find that extra "oomph" as we transition from the dark months into a sunnier season.

|Get Energized First of all, I'm excited to announce the release of my new DVD, Reebok BootCamp!
In this DVD, I guide you through seven mix-and-match workouts combining interval cardio and strength training exercises for maximum results. Prepare to work hard and burn
some serious calories!
I also want to share with you a great tool called the Spike Mat. Used for thousands of years, the mat is covered in tiny spikes that activate the body's endorphins and oxytocin. It helps you reduce stress and gain energy just by lying and relaxing on it. Learn more on my blog and give it a try!
Write It Out
When I want
my clients to discover for themselves what they are really doing
in terms of eating habits or behaviors, I ask them to journal for
a while. For example, sometimes we forget how many cupcakes
there really were on Sunday, but if we see it in print, a light bulb goes off! In other cases, it can be helpful to write and revisit journal entries about events and goals. As
it's sometimes hard to see forest for the trees, a journal can be a useful tool
for motivation and progress. Not to mention how old-school romantic
it can be to write in a secret journal!
You can, of course, use any journal or notebook your heart desires, but if you'd like one with a little structure, check out Moleskine's Wellness Journal, which has sections for Diet, Exercise Log, Personal Goals, General Health, Games, and Inspirations.
Abs Diet Powerfoods
Have you heard of the Abs Diet? It centers on 12 good-for-you "Powerfoods" that help fight fat and build lean muscle. This diet isn't
about deprivation; it's about keeping yourself fueled, satisfied, and
full of energy. Over on my blog, we have been looking at each of
the Abs Diet Powerfoods in more detail. Check out the foods I've covered so far and stay tuned for the rest!
