AquaHydrate Water Review

Hydration Station: Birch Tree Water + AQUAhydrate

Sometimes I feel like my life is one giant dehydration-rehydration cycle, especially in the hot months. After a night (or weekend) of going out to eat and drink, sweating in the Austin sun, enjoying a bit more wine than I should, etc. I have to put myself on an aggressive rehydration schedule.

Metamorphosis by Tracy Anderson

Tracy Anderson is My New Frenemy

There’s nothing I love more than embarking on an overly ambitious fitness plan, especially when it’s somehow celebrity-related, so yesterday I started the dang Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis program to really try to get my bod into bangin’ shape before all the travel I’m embarking on the rest of the summer.
