ANNETTE'S LITHE INSIDE CHALLENGE! 10 Feb 2015

Annette-2

Check out Annette one year ago!

Well, friends, I did it. I survived turning 40. Somehow I woke up this morning without my face shriveling into a wrinkled prune, my (nonexistent) boobs drooping to my knees, or needing bifocals and dentures. It's really turned out to be a day just like any other day. It's a day where I get to open my eyes and be grateful for the opportunities that lie ahead, be humbled by the strength my body provides me, and awed by what this world has to offer. I think birthdays are just a perfect reminder of what we should be doing that each and every day.

Other than the two cheat days I mentioned at my midway point, I stayed pretty on-point with the diet. I eased up a little bit this weekend, sharing some sorbet with a girlfriend at a pre-birthday dinner, and then fully taking advantage of shared pieces of chocolate cake and Nutella cheesecake as well as an aged Napa cabernet at dinner last night.
 
I am happy to say I surpassed the class goals Lauren and I set for myself. In these past 40 days, I've taught 38 classes, and have taken 52 classes.  I had one "off" day in those 30 days where I wasn't in the studio. Honestly my muscles are fatigued. I'm looking forward to a day off tomorrow and a massage, but I'm already signed up for the Summer Bodies Are Earned In Winter Challenge. I figure it's good to keep the momentum moving forward, though I might relax a bit to more of the 80/20 lifestyle with my diet.
 
I can now do triceps push-ups in full plank,  I'm not afraid of 8 pound weights during a bicep series, and I don't hate cardio nearly as much as I did. I don't think I'll ever be able to do teasers though, and still have those days when I don't always tuck enough when I'm in Liberty at the barre.  
 
I am ever so grateful for all of the support I received from the Lithe community. I never considered myself one of the "cool girls," but everyone has made me feel special and encouraged beyond words. Thank you so much for all of your inspiration. I look forward to taking up the mantle with those of you that are going into the next challenge, and I'm just plain excited to see everyone who is present in-studio for your own personal fitness goals in the days to come. You are strong! You are fierce! You are amazing! Woo hoo!

THE MAMACITA SKINNY HEATHEN 6 Feb 2015

Lithe & AITA'a Mamacita

 

Happy Friday! The final cocktail in our 13-week Skinny Heathen series with Art In The Age is The Mamacita, a combo of Lithe's Spicy Lemonade cold-pressed juice and AITA's Snap liquor.

Lithe's Spicy Lemonade is a raw juice blend with cold-pressed lemon, cayenne, coconut nectar, and filtered water. It's spicy, hydrating, and immunity-boosting. Plus, it restores your body's healthy alkaline balance. AITA's Snap is inspired by traditional German lebkuchen (gingersnaps!), but not the mass-marketed sugar-laden kind. Pennsylvania Dutch gingersnaps are made with hearty blackstrap molasses and fresh ginger. This cocktail can be served on the rocks, but it's especially delicious warmed in a crock-pot or on the stove, hot toddy-style. 


Yield
1 serving

Ingredients

2 oz. Snap

2 oz. Lithe Spicy Lemonade

1 oz. apple cider

Cinnamon for garnish

 

Directions

Fill a Collins glass with ice, pour in Spicy Lemonade and cider. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.
