Fitness | Country Heat | Healthier Eating

I am beyond excited to talk about my new workout program for August, COUNTRY HEAT.

What is Country Heat?

Country Heat is the newest program by Beachbody and created by Celebrity Trainer Autumn Calabrese. (You've probably heard of 21 Day Fix) It's a dance program that is 30 days long and features some of the hottest country pop music! Each workout is 30 minutes of low impact cardio. This is a great starter workout. You can easily modify it!
At first, my response was, "Huh? Country music?" But I was willing to give it some thought because Beachbody goes through a lot of research and tests groups before they launch a program. When Beachbody had the sneak peeks on Beachbody on Demand, I did the workouts and I was really impressed so when it launched, I purchased it.

Last week when I got it, I was just working out, getting a feel of how the moves were. It's a really great cardio workout if you are looking to switch out your cardio for something fun. You can probably pair it with 21 day fix  or 21 day fix extreme and get some killer results.

So for August I'll be using Country Heat and I might be mixing it up and ADDING some of the 21 Day Fix workouts.

Visit to Sahara Sam's Oasis

Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored and therefore my own personal and honest opinion. 

So for our #SundayFunday we decided to head to Sahara Sam's Oasis, an indoor/outdoor water park in New Jersey. We drove up to Wayne, PA the night before to be closer and just to get away from NYC for the weekend (our experience at the Courtyard Marriott there was wonderful and we plan on going back very soon) and then drove up to NJ the next day. We got our tickets for $23.95/person online with a promo code and Ava was free.

We were really excited to go to an indoor/outdoor water park and the pictures showed a few neat things the kids could do. When we got there the building looked a lot smaller than we anticipated. We quickly changed into our swimsuits and let the fun begin.

There is an arcade, a cafe, bar, and tons of changing rooms. So there is plenty of things to do other than just be in the water and there is almost zero lines. Things move quickly and you are able to get on everything quickly. There are at least two major pools and various smaller pools as well as tons of beach chairs where you can sit back and relax.

I'm not sure I like people being able to drink near my kids. I'm not sure how their policies work because I didn't look twice at the bar but it was definitely a turn off for us.
Another con is that some of the kids are so excited that they push around younger kids. Dana got pushed out the way a few times from older kids who do not pay attention to where they are going. I know this is not Sahara Sam's fault but it was reason enough for us to believe its not worth a second trip.
