Getting fit for Life

Trying to keep a healthy lifestyle

Last few months we’ve been doing kettlebells at Bell’s Taekwondo ; we use the kettlebells for a variety of exercise including the swing, high pull, snatches, squats and many more.  Really good for the core.



When we aren’t able to make a class we usually do our Fitdeck cards or play extreme kettlebell poker on our own; anything 5 or under you double 😮

  • Hearts – Swings
  • Clubs – Snatches
  • Diamonds – Presses
  • Spades – Squats
    • Jokers (pick one of the above and do ten)
  • Aces – Windmills

You can do this with any exercises.  It’s a good way to do some exercises when traveling; and it only takes an hour of the day.


Our six pack 🙂

Just recently we bought a speed ladder (for agility) and 6 different FitDeck cards to play around with…hopefully this will help me with my skating :)…having said that after the first time I went through the deck of speed ladder I thought I’d die…LOL

Besides exercise we’ve been using our Blendtec to make lots of green smoothies; some don’t always look great but they taste pretty good.  We also make soups in it using roasted vegetables and chicken broth; they are oh so tasty. These are not cheap but they really grinds up the fruits and veggies

Now that the warmer weather is here we hope to get our bikes and Kayak out 😀
