Trip to Wickham Farms

Trying to get a photo and Ava's mouth is full of apples
A few of weeks ago, we visited Rochester, NY for a baby shower but we had an opportunity to go apple picking for some yummy Honey Crisps. We also did a corn maze (which we failed at! We were so lost!). It was so much fun and although it was a gazillion degrees out, it was just a reminder that Fall was finally upon us.

The kids really enjoyed picking apples. In fact, we didn't pick any of the apples but we supervised the ones that they did put into our bag. I even tried apple cider for the first time in my life! I know... how could I have not ever drank one cup of apple cider? But it's true! We also had Apple Donuts and Fried Apple Slices (these were my favorite, in fact, we ate them so fast I didn't get to snap a picture!).

Next on the list is pumpkin picking! We ran out of time and didn't have time do the activities that were there for the kids and to do the pumpkin picking. However, if you are ever in Penfield, NY and have kids (or not) you should definitely visit Wickham Farms. The experience was great for us!

When we realized we were lost in the corn maze
On a last note, Fall has to be my favorite season of all. The crisp air, the warm blankets and sweaters, the beginning of boots and light jackets, hot chocolate and of course the holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving! Even though this Fall has been pretty warm even mid-October, it's still awesome to watch the mornings be a little cooler and the nights even cooler. I definitely can't wait for tea and to curl up on a chair with a good book weather!

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.
