Edamame poppers- the healthy bar snack!

Active Appetites

34-year-old Mayra Rosales was 1,000 pounds when her 2-year-old nephew died after her sister hit him in the head with a hairbrush in 2008.

She says she still has more weight she wants to lose.

“I was dying. I don’t know…

The Scene And Things

One thing I can say, weightlifting changed my life.  It’s been the one thing that help transform my body and I’ve stayed consistent with my weight and healthy lifestyle for over a year now.

There are other workouts such as cardio and plyometrics to my weekly routine, but I believe weightlifting has become the major role in changing my life.  And it’s the one thing I will never skip during the week.
