Enjoy Exercise With These Low-Impact Workouts

August 29, 2014 11:02 am

Want to begin exercising but don't know where to start? These three low-impact workouts can help you get started:

  1. Walking. Walking is extremely low-impact, enables you to spend time outdoors, and is much cheaper than a monthly gym membership. The average person can burn about 181 calories by walking for just 45 minutes, and you can always add to your speed or distance as you start to feel more comfortable.
  2. Zumba. This fun, lively workout may incorporate choreography, but it’s much simpler than most step aerobics classes or dance classes. Zumba incorporates dance moves to create an exercise program that doesn’t even feel like working out. Best of all, you’ll burn over 350 calories in just 45 minutes.
  3. Cycling. Although many people are intimidated by the loud music and fast pace of a cycling class, this is actually a very low-impact workout. Cycling is great because you can go at your own pace, and no one will really notice if you go a bit slower than the rest of the class. Even very moderate cycling will burn 381 calories in 45 minutes, and you can increase that number by pedaling faster.

Three Tart and Sweet Lemonade Recipes

August 13, 2014 10:01 am

The combination of tart and sweet is what gives lemonade its beloved flavor, and this classic beverage is a cool, refreshing staple all summer long. If you want to make your lemonade taste great from June to August, it’s best to incorporate some other unexpected flavors as well. Here are three great lemonade recipes to try on the next hot day.

Raspberry Lemonade [Martha Stewart]
This recipe takes the plumpest, juiciest raspberries you can find and blends them with traditional lemonade to give the beverage a lovely pink color and a bright, fruity flavor. Garnishing with mint is a wonderful addition, as is a splash of tequila if you’re feeling extra bold!

Roasted Peach Lemonade [The Naptime Chef]
This down-home lemonade is best sipped on a big front porch, but since that’s not in the cards for most people, near a breezy window will also do. Roasted peaches give this drink a sweet Southern flair, and they take just 25 minutes in the oven and a reliable blender to make.

Refreshing Watermelon Lemonade [Babble]
To round out the fruity lemonade trifecta, this watermelon option is one that even the little ones are sure to love. Simply puree a seedless watermelon with some fresh lemon juice, sugar, and water and pour it all over ice for an cold treat at the end of a long day.
