Real Talk: Grokker Review & *GIVEAWAY*Posted: October 29, 2015 Filed under: Fitness, Gross But Necessary, Health and Wellness, Review | Tags: fit approach, GBN, giveaway, grokker, Gross But Necessary, health, health and wellness, healthy-living, review, sweat pink Leave a comment
So I know that I am behind on my #GBN (Gross But Necessary) posts, but I am super excited to share this fun website with you!
Have you heard of Grokker? I know it has a funny name, but it is awesome!
Grokker is a total wellness website.
This site is not your typical streaming website. You can find workouts, yoga and cooking videos…I even watched a few videos on food and wine pairings! How cool is that? It’s comforting to know that if I ever really want to impress Farmer Ben, I can bring a professional chef into my kitchen for a quick lesson without having to clean up/shower!
Also… Upstate NY in Late Fall/Winter… It’s COLD! And dark! Now, I love running, but winter running can be tough and, if I don’t make it out during the day, dangerous! Knowing that I can use Grokker as an alternative to an outside run AND as an option for cross-training is huge! On top of that, I don’t even have to leave my house, which means that if I am up crazy late doing homework and the mood strikes, I can totally do a dance workout in my pjs. Winning!
Speaking of dance workouts… one of my favorite videos on Grokker is this one… this is
super kind of embarrassing (because I can’t dance to save my life!) but I LOVE to dance, especially anything with a latin flavor… so this mambo dance workout was right up my alley!
In addition to their videos, Grokker allows you to track the videos that you’ve done and the amount of time spent being active. They also allow you to save videos for later, create collections based on your preferences and schedule workouts for a later date and time! In addition to that, you also have the ability to ask questions to a huge team of experts!
Have a I mentioned that I love this site?
Grokker currently has two plans. Basic (the freebie!) and Premium (it’s unlimited videos!). Typically I’d say go for the free plan, but honestly, the Premium plan has a lot of perks (and a lot more videos) and is well worth the $10/ month if you pay for a year.

Scenes from a Weekend HikePosted: August 26, 2013 Filed under: Fun, Health and Wellness, Life, Uncategorized | Tags: 46er, Adirondacks, catamount mountain, fit approach, hiking, nature, outdoors, sweat pink, Upstate NY 3 Comments
I should have posted this last week as we did the hike two Sundays ago…but …I didn’t.
Anyway, Ben and I were invited to chaperone a church youth group hike. Per usual, we decided the morning of that we would do it and threw a few snacks, the camelbak, some Energy Bits, and clothes in the back of my car. After church, we picked up some subs to eat for a quick lunch.
We were told the hike would be pretty easy… this was only half-true. The first three-quarters of a mile is flat… the rest is a nice little incline, the whole way up.
In spite of the steep climb, it was totally worth it. Interested in doing the hike?

Here are some views from the top….
Anyway, it turned out to be a great day for a hike and I am so glad we decided to go. This is definitely one of the harder hikes I have done, especially once we got closer to the top, but I felt good.
Hiking, yes or no? Favorite outdoor activity? Are you a last-minute person like me or a planner?
