Hamstring Cupping (Recipe: Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Frosting)

I think I have mentioned before that I have had my hamstrings cupped. I think I have also mentioned how painful it is. Bob really hits those spots where the muscles need release. Here is what that looks like–yeah, I know.  The things we do.

Food for Thought: Choose cherries instead of pomegranates. An ounce of tart cherries has half the sugar and almost a third fewer calories. Plus, the sour-sweet fruit is rich in sleep-promoting melatonin. One study found two daily cups of tart cherry juice earned people up to 85 more minutes of sleep per night!

Quote of the Day:

“Do whatever excites you, be it yoga Cross-Fit, strength training, 5-Ks, triathlons, or around-the-block walks with the mutt. If you get tired of one exercise, switch to another. Just don’t stop–ever. You only have to exercise on the days that you eat.” -Joseph Alpert
