Reviews: Mio Energy Iced Mocha Java

One of my favorite products to help me lose weight and steer clear of pop is the Mio water enhancer. Last week, I think I found a new favorite of Kraft’s popular additive: the Mio Energy Iced Mocha Java. For those who like coffee, such as myself, you might want to give this one a try. Personally, I think it tastes a lot like Starbucks frappuccinos you find at the grocery store. Since I am quite addicted to those drinks, this is a nice alternative while giving me a little bit of a pep in my mornings.

It’s a simple exercise that can have some profound results when added to your regular routine.

Reviews: Machine Bicep Curl

Although I am a bit biased about owning exercise machines, that doesn’t mean I won’t use them at the rec center. The Machine Bicep Curl is one of the first things I do as soon as I enter the building – that is, unless it’s occupied.

Reviews: Mio Energy Acai Berry Storm

My brother recently sent me a copy of some website that was essentially bashing the Mio water enhancer product from Kraft.

So, I’ve decided to do some real research into Mio water enhancers – especially the Acai Berry Storm.

Reviews: Progresso Creamy Tomato with Penne

With how much I boast about Progresso soups, you’d think I’d have an affiliation. In reality, I just appreciate good soup. One of my favorites is that of Creamy Tomato with Penne. Like most other tomato-based flavors, this can is loaded with good and bad. However, the bad can be manageable if you watch what you eat throughout the rest of the day.

Reviews: Emerge Body Slenderizing Drink Mix

As my family and I strive for better health, my wife turned me on to something called Emerge. This is a drink mix that is added to water and is to be “fat incinerating” and a mood enhancer. Personally, I am always skeptical when it comes to products that claim things such as this. However, I am quite impressed with this product and decided to go into a bit more detail for those visiting the site.

10 Ways to Get the Most Workout from Your Kinect

I am a big fan of physical fitness through gaming. In fact, it was the sole purpose in buying the Wii several years ago and the driving force behind buying our XBox 360. My favorite experience for working out is that of using the Kinect. I have proven in the past that playing these games is more grueling of a workout than many calisthenics. But how do you get the most exercise while playing your games?

Reviews: XBox 360 Kinect

Yes, I know the XBox 360 is a bit dated. However, I still use the system several times a week to help get into shape. My household has found this system to be far superior to the Wii when it comes to physical activity. Remember, this review is based on the Kinect aspect of the XBox – not the system itself. Although I do have a collection of games that don’t require the Kinect, this review is about the physical aspect of gaming.

One of my favorite devices to use while trying to get myself back in a realistic and healthy shape is the Fitbit Charge HR. Developed by the same people who gave us that amazing little pedometer that can be attached to your shoe, this bracelet goes above and beyond what many of their lesser products provide. It’s a permanent addition to my tools. Let me tell you why…
