    Woah, I thought you were just being colloquial when you said “kill your muscles.” 😬

  2. The NY Times article grabbed my attention. Unfortunately, I think this comment is spot on “They kept doing what the instructor told them to do because they did not want to look weak.”
    I am adopting more and more LISS (Low-Intensity Steady State) into my fitness routine and mixing it with other HIIT training, and more importantly, listen to what my body says.

    Re: Grilling Beets…don’t. You still have to pre-cook them to soften and then grill them. Very time consuming. I promise you they will not grill the way she describes. I tried last month and it really was not worth the effort. (Although my dad suggested a quick cook in a pressure cooker first before grilling so I may give that a go before the end of summer.)

What do you think?
