First of all, I highly recommend getting the stomach flu.  Nothing drops pounds faster than a nice little virus (it is a virus, right).  So I owe my total weight loss of 5 pounds to the flu.  Thank you for keeping me up all night and making be gag at the thought of food.  

scaleI just hope to be able keep it off. slowly but surely, slowly but surely.

Big Ups: Des Moines Juice

I would like to introduce a new segment here at Shakin and Bakin and that is called “Big Ups.”  This is where I give props (or accolades) to something I feel is deserving.  Today I would like to highlight Des Moines Juice, most especially their Des Moines Juice Fitness Challenge

They are putting together some interesting articles from the experts, nutritionists, personal trainers and just regular old folk like me battling the bulge.  I particularly liked their WorkOut DVD reviews.


Awesome WorkOut DVD

Awesome WorkOut DVD

I was going back and forth to as whether or not I wanted to purchase WorkOut by Jackie Warner of BravoTV fame. Boy, I am glad I did.  Her workout is the best!  You can choose from upper body, lower body and core. I definitely woke up sore the next day.  

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
