Women’s Health Cover Star for April 2014: 

Sexy songstress Shakira is on the cover this month and she looks purrrfect! She is a judge on The Voice (a show I have never seen) and she plans to out-think Blake Shelton this season. (I know him!)

Staying in shape after giving birth to her son Milan in January 2013 meant trying new sports such as basketball and tennis. Shakira also “worked her tail off” with trainer Anna Kaiser and you can see some of her workout here:

So what else is in the April issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Win At the Power Ball”

This Dynamax medicine ball looks really cool (I want one!) and this workout from trainer Jessi Kneeland from Peak Performance NYC is a keep IMHO.

 Spoiler Alert!”  

Catchy headline for an article that shows you how long certain foods & condiments should stay in your pantry or fridge. (I always need a reminder on this kind of stuff!)

 “Light on Your Feet”

The weather is getting lighter & brighter so why not get a pair of new sneaks to really get in the mood to play outdoors again?

“Perks of Fab Backside”

I didn’t know having a “fab backside” would have anything other than perks, but oh well. The workout here from trainer Holly Perkins is pretty damn great!

 Women’s Health Cover Star for November 2013: 

Carrie Underwood whom I just discovered as a kickass singer whose songs are now completely filling up my iPod. Not to sound like a total rock-centric snob but I never really “got” country/pop before but I am becoming a big fan of hers. (Honestly—Before He Cheats totally rules!!!)

Carrie keeps in shape by sticking with a vegan diet and working out as often as she can on the road. She  also loves animals and took care of a stray dog last year. (Yay! Carrie!)

Carrie “Favorite Things” include:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Ezekiel Bread
  • Better’N Peanut Butter
  • Hot Yoga
