Cage Fitness

by Meghann on April 26, 2011

I had my booty handed to me tonight!

Well, that was pre-booty handing, but – Look! – hair that has been blow dried and real make up. That’s something you don’t see everyday! At least, not lately. 🙂

Back to the booty handing.

It was called Cage Fitness and it hurt. A lot.

I discovered Cage Fitness through a GroupOn deal a few weeks ago and knew it would be the perfect fitness regiment for an upcoming episode of Meals and Miles. I was right. It. Was. Awesome.

Cage Fitness is a Martial Arts inspired fitness class that revolves around a 40 lb body bag. It’s 30 minutes of straight cardio, strength training, and pounding. This was probably the toughest class I’ve ever done on the show and I can’t wait to see the many faces I’m sure I made on film.

The drive to Orlando was quick and painless. I had a not-so-tasty Passion Fruit Honest Tea (that was sweetened with stevia) on the way and an Oikos with crumbled pumpkin bread before I left Tampa.

Oh, yes – much better than Pita Pit. Loved the falafels. They’re made fresh in house and you can tell. They had a nice crunchy crust and a flavorful, doughy center.

Yum.

Kelly has crazy amounts of chocolate around the house. I found two pieces for dessert.

That class seriously wore me out. I’m exhausted! Time for bed!

Good Night!

Travel Time

April 26, 2011

As I was digging my suitcase out from the bottom of my garage this morning, something hit me – it’s buried because I can’t remember the last time I used it. I’ve lived in Tampa for almost two months now and in those two months I haven’t had to pull my luggage out once. I more »

The Desk

April 26, 2011

We have a desk! Isn’t it amazing? The desk has been up less than 12 hours and it’s already piled high with junk. I have my work cut out for me when I return from Nashville next week. I wish I had time to mess with it before I head out of town this afternoon. more »
