We’re still here!

So sorry this blog has been neglected. We’re working on a ton of new stuff right now so for the most part it’ll be best to follow our Facebook page. Once we get some more recipes created and all that, we’ll be back to posting here daily. So please bear with us, so sorry we suck right now!

Our new workout challenge is up, I’ll post the calendar in a sec. It is called “Tone Your Trouble Zones” so definitely check it out and let us know what you think!

Monday Digest 7/18

We hope you’re all ready to have an insanely awesome, ass kicking week!! We have HUGE plans in the works for Live Lean and we are really excited about it! As a preview check out our Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/LIVE-LEAN/182980675084842 don’t forget to ‘like’ us if you haven’t already =] and click on our new discussions tab.

We want this to bring a better sense of community to you guys so you can encourage each other and share some tips of your own. We started some topics to get things moving along for you so jump in there and tell us your thoughts or start your own topics! We love hearing what you guys have to say so be sure you do that =]

Other than that we are working on the challenge for August which will also have some great changes from past challenges. We think the new setup will make things a lot easier for you guys to understand and spend more time working out and less time reading how to do each move. Are there any specific body parts you guys would like more workout moves for? Let us know and we will try to include them in August’s workout challenge! (Wow we can’t believe it’s almost August, that means summer is almost over and winter will be here way too soon!).

The newsletter will as always, be sent out on Tuesday night or Wed at midnight whichever way you want to look at it. Any ideas for next week’s newsletter? Anything you’d like to know more about? Be sure to let us know! Just shoot us an email to liveleanmd@gmail.com with “newsletter idea” in the subject. Also, if you haven’t yet subscribed send us an email (to the same address) with “subscribe” in the subject line and we will be sure to get you added.

Have a great week everyone, thank you so much for your support of Live Lean. We can’t wait to keep expanding and bringing you bigger and better things!
