Home Workout with BodyGym

BodyGym- Home Workout

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m going to first to admit- I hate to exercise! So much so I bought a membership at a gym last year and went two times in one year.  Yeah- a big waste of money there!  I’ve never been a physical person- EVER!  My body is not built for jumping up and down- running is the last thing I want to do?  If this sounds like YOU- then I got the perfect workout equipment for you!    

The BodyGym Bar- Is all you NEED! 

The BodyGym Bar is the multi-purpose home gym workout. With one piece of equipment, you can do so much like cardio, strength, and core.  I can do the exercises while sitting in a chair or standing up.    

BodyGym Exercises

The one thing I love about working out with the BodyGym is how it stretches my body out, and oh boy, I need that. Now I’m not saying this a lazy workout because NO WAY, it will work you out, and you will feel it!  It is perfect for me- I have bad knees, so all that jumping up and down will make my joints flare-up.  

I’ve been using the BodyGym for a month now, and I’ve lost a bit of my muffin top and fit into jeans I love and never got rid of because you know someday I will fit into them again- HAHA! But the best part is I feel good and plan to use it more and more.  I will be honest- I haven’t used it every day but probably 2-3 times a week.  I’m trying!

Everyone can use the BODYGYM 

  My husband, who goes to physical therapy every week for his shoulder, asked his Doctor if this would help him at home- the Doctor was HECK YEAH use that every day -couple times a day. He is gaining back more strength in his shoulder after 30 days, so it is working great for him, too.   

The BodyGym is so affordable $39, with the option of adding on DVD workouts and app features that are transferable to any device. Plus, it is suitable for all abilities, from beginners who have just started working out to individuals aiming to target and strengthen core muscle groups.  

When I work out- morning time is the BEST TIME for me.  I love going outside when everyone is sleeping and get about 15-20 minutes in and let me tell you my day was always so productive after the workout.  I need to work out more- I love that feeling, so I might have missed out on the Summer Bod challenge this year, but wait until next summer. 

You can take this BodyGym bar everywhere!  It comes with a drawstring carrying bag so you can take to work or even vacation—no more money wasted on gyms. You can watch DVD or stream the exercises.  

One more note…working out and over 50 causes a bit more pain that I want in my life but I found something that helps a lot. 

Mad Ritual- CBD Recovery Balm

I’m so happy I received Mad Ritual because it has been so helpful on those days my shoulders hurt from doing too much. My husband also has been using this balm on his shoulders- he had shoulder surgery two years and still in a lot of pain.  

This balm is vegan, organic, and made with the simplest, highest quality ingredients found in nature.  Plus, it has powerful essential oils that will leave you feeling like you just got a spa treatment.We have the Lavender + Frankincense balm, and OMFG it smells so good.  There are also Eucalyptus + Peppermint and Unscented balms to pick from- so something for everyone!

The balm easily fits into your purse or gym bag. Go ahead and see for yourself all the goodies that Mad Ritual has in their SHOP! 

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 3- Gummy Bear Slime

Gummy Bear Slime- Oh my!

I have partnered with Warner Bros. for 8 weeks of summer camp- and we will receive products in exchange for sharing my honest opinion and this information. #campwarnerbros

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 3- Gummy Bear Slime

Are you ready for loveable bear hugs, digital culture references, life lessons – and Gummy Bear Slime! Well then- LET’S DO THIS!

My daughter used to make SLIME every day. I remember all the glue I used to buy, but I never bought gummi bears, so I was intrigued by how this slime would turn out.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE GUMMY BEAR SLIME

What you need: Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 3- Gummy Bear Slime

All you need is Gummy Bears, Corn Starch, and Powdered Sugar to make this slime. I had everything at home but gummy bears, so we went to our neighborhood Target and grabbed a few boxes. We needed extra gummy bears just in case we messed up or ate the first box before making the slime.

MAKING THE GUMMY BEAR SLIME

The process- Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 3- Gummy Bear Slime

Making slime with my daughter was super fun, and we laughed a lot. The process was a little messy with all the corn starch and the powdered sugar, but oh so much fun! We even ate some of it; it’s okay all the ingredients are edible. The funny thing is that it tasted like bubble gum, but it was better as slime, not a snack.

The process was super easy and took less than 5 minutes. If you have young children- make sure an adult does the mixing of the melted gummy bears, that is some HOT stuff.

My daughter finds doing this very relaxing-

Okay, so we got the SLIME made, now what? Now we watch the movie -We Bare Bears: The Movie. My daughter knows who the Bare Bears are, but I didn’t. They are not the CARE BEARS! However, as an adult, you will pick up on some lessons in the movie- not sure if the kids will, but I did.

At first, the movie is a bit slow, but don’t give up- it will get so much better, and it does have a message. I don’t agree with everything in this movie, but I did get a lot from it- I hope that makes sense. I don’t want to give it away or put my two cents on it before you watch it.

The issues brought up do need to be addressed- just my adult mind working overtime these days. My daughter enjoyed it, and that is what is important. Oh yeah, it’s not a very long movie at all- just a little over 60 minutes.

ABOUT:

We Bare Bears: The Movie follows Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear’s love of food trucks and Internet fame, which leads the brothers to unexpected mayhem, where they must go on a wild, hilarious and dangerous adventure to escape a foe that threatens to tear them apart. Watch as Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear catch the attention of the Department of Wildlife Control and go on a wacky adventure as their world turns upside down, and the Bears are left with no choice but to go on the run!

We Bare Bears: The Movie is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD- NOW.

Are you ready for WEEK 4 and guess what it is SCOOBY-DOO!- WrestleMania Mystery, and it looks like we will be making SCOOBY SNACKS!

Check out Week 1 and Week 2 and see what we have been doing in #CampWarnerBros.

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

I have partnered with Warner Bros. for 8 weeks of summer camp- and we will receive products in exchange for sharing my honest opinion and this information. #campwarnerbros

Do you like CANDY? Do you want to make your own? Yum, right! This week in Camp Warner Bros, we are talking about Steven Universe: The Movie! Plus we are having some science fun!

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!
Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

SCIENCE FUN AT IT’S BEST!

This week, we are going to have some fun with science, color mixing, and learning patience. Have you ever made ROCK CANDY? But this week it is called Steven Universe’s “Crystal Gem” Candy. – Print PDF!

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

We decided to make RUBY RED CANDY! What I like the most about this activity was a lot of the items were things we already had around the house!

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!
  • Glass Jar
  • Pencil
  • Paper Clip
  • String
  • Food Coloring
  • 3 cups of Sugar
  • Water
  • Funnel- this helped a lot but it is optional
Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

Since you will be working with hot liquids, make sure that there is adult supervision at all times! It was a fun activity, but remember when I mention PATIENCE- well, it takes some time to get that sugar to form on the string, so you need to give it time. We gave a good 12 hours, and it still needed more time.

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

MOVIE- Steven Universe: The Movie

After your candy forms, make sure you are ready to WATCH Steven Universe: The Movie! Which, by the way, the movie is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD! After so many harrowing adventures, Steven and the Gems are ready to celebrate how far they’ve come with a movie musical! Little do they know they’re about to face their worst enemy yet.

The Crystal Gems are a team of magical beings who are the self-appointed guardians of the universe. They are Half-human, half-Gem, and hero Steven is the “little brother” of the group. He is learning how to save the world using the magical powers that come from his belly button, and he goes on magical adventures with the rest of the Crystal Gems. Steven always finds a way to SAVE the world.

As an adult, yes, cartoons can be FUN, but look for the meaning in the movie, and you will have gain some Steven knowledge!

Alright, we are READY for Week 3- which is going to be so much fun! Slime lovers will want to tune in NEXT FRIDAY to our activity Gummy Bear Slime! And the show will be We Bare Bears: The Movie!
