Avoid these high calorie coffee drinks

You might never think about it but it is possible that your frequent trips to the coffeehouse are making you fat! It's become a staple in our culture to socially meet at the coffee shop, have a tasty beverage and maybe even a sugary snack.  We've also fallen into the habit of hitting the caffeine when we are exhausted and/or need to focus on a task. But the downside could be that the drinks and snacks you are choosing are high in calories and making you gain weight. In this episode of Fit Life, I give you the guide you need to successfully keep your diet at a coffeehouse.

Stability Ball Exercise: Ab Workout

Ab workouts can be boring if you're just doing crunches for every workout. Try giving yourself a balance challenge by using the stability ball and doing this ab exercise. The Pike Tuck exercise in this fitness video is one that I always enjoy doing but somehow always forget, so this is my reminder to never settle into a routine – there is always a different/better/harder/more fun exercise out there!
