What’s up Brick Gals! We’ve decided to incorporate the oh so important topic of Health & Fitness to our already awesome blog. Yeah, yeah, I know- health (boooring) and fitness (such a drag)- aren’t our most favorite things to talk about, and being that Brickell is filled with so many delicious places to feast our taste buds on, it’s not always easy to eat the right things. But, while that Baked Brie from Perricones may look aesthetically pleasing, come on Brick Gals, that “cheese” doesn’t look so good on our thighs- and since we’ll be spending lots more Sundays at the Mandarin’s Beach Party that means we gots to get real!
A healthy weight and lifestyle is something some Brick Gals continually struggle with, and just for you (ok obs for me too), I’m ready to start kicking butt and taking names and tackle those two once and for all. A Brick Gal like me loves to eat (in fact I’m a fatty at heart), but starting today, I’ll be hitting the mat with our friends over at Crossfit Vida in Brickell. Wait, what? There’s a Crossfit in Brickell? Well, whadda ya know? I was clueless about that too- until I saw some crazies running through the streets near the Conrad during lunchtime and I, being an addicted runner, decided to check it out.
Dilemma… a busy Brick Gal like me (and you) doesn’t have much time for fitness. And much less, the time to plan and execute an eating regimen that will compliment that fitness plan. Heck, I’m constantly struggling just to fit in some cardio. I find myself sneaking in a spinning class during my lunch, or if that doesn’t work, eating leaves all day to compensate for the lack of the exercise. And yeah, my running and diet (I’m an avid Weight Watchers success story and highly advocate that it works)- have helped me lose major weight, but while I’ve recently neared my goal weight, (which will remain NOYB) I am still struggling with some “loose” ends if you know what I mean!
Solution… Crossfit Vida Brickell. Over the next 90 days, follow me as I tighten up all the loose ends.
Now, when it comes to lifting weights, you’re talking to the wrong girl. Lift a weight? Huh? Umm, I don’t lift anything, unless it involves lifting my hand to waive down the bartender for another drink- so when Co-Owner Mike and I peeked into one of his Crossfit classes in sessions, I was freaked the f*** out! There I saw it (aside from a few hotties), a chick shorter than me, lifting a bar with more weight on it than me! I must admit, it’s a little scary for a little girl like me to even imagine lifting something bigger than me. But Alas, I have decided, I am ready for the challenge.
I’ll show you how to still enjoy that amazing brunch at Balans, without sacrificing our oh so delicate figures! So stay tuned Brick Gals, it’s going to be an interesting journey, but let’s kick some Crossfit Ass!
