Verance Exercise Club

Verance where I work...and Verance Exercise Club is, at least for now, is the only female employees exercise club where we meet for 1 hour, 12-1pm, Mondays and Wed. to workout and have fun...
For now I am leading the classes.
I will start writing down the routines that I follow, but pretty much we do have a warmup, HIIT routine following Mondays, legs/buns/glutes and Wed upper body.

It is going well so far, ladies are taking whatever I give to them with no complaints and I love that :)
just the way we roll.

Equipment we use: resistance bands, free weights, yoga mats, our own body weight.

Area: Our new 2nd floor office has a nice space in the middle where we share it with ping pong players.

Company has been very generous for us to provide this space, we will use it with great appreciation.

Paleo and Food Combining

I know this is going to be harder than it sounds like....but for the amount of digestion issues I have lately...I am determined to try this and see how it goes.
I am trying paleo diet and combining the food classes properly.
So I will give myself a cheat day or meal whatever but mostly and mainly I will be eating what cave men ate and not combining starchy veggies with leafy non starchy veggies with meat or eggs, and starchy veggies with leafy veggies...does it make sense? that way my digestion will work how it should.
also Fruits will be eaten by themselves on an empty stomach for proper digestion, quickly.
