#Mashup Monday: 2.20.12

This week I’m veering off just slightly to bring you some Moombahton!

Wait, you don’t know Moombahton?  I was exposed to this new genre a few months ago thanks to PartyBen. It’s a sound invented by Dave Nada. It happened one night at a house party when he slowed an Afrojack remix down to 108 beats per minute (interview).  Essentially it’s reggaton meets dutch house music … and it’s fabulous!

My first track is the inspiration for today’s post. It’s nearly 30 mins of pure, rump-shakin, remix ala Moombahton.

You may or may not realize that this Tuesday is Valentine’s Day. While it’s just another day for many of us (singles) there are plenty of LOVE inspired mashups out there to help you celebrate … or to help drown out the sound of cupid’s arrow as it strikes all the love crazy couples in the world.

Find Happiness with Gaiam TV

GaiamTv.com

Have you heard about Gaiam TV? I have seen a bit of buzz around the internet recently praising the site and all that it has to offer, so I am very excited to be giving it a try … and it couldn’t come at a better time for me! Last week I started my diet (just a little late in the whole new years resolution movement) and my work load kept me from getting to the gym at a decent hour – aka before closing – but now I have no excuse!

GaiamTV.com is going to help me find happiness by allowing me access to over 2,000 streaming videos focused on health, wellness, yoga, fitness and personal development. It’s like netflix for my well being! Whether I have 15 mins or an hour I cansimply log on and access yoga, Pilates and cardio videos from the comforts of my home at any time I please!

I love the ability to find just what I need. They have filters set up in each category which allow me to choose my level, style, instructor  and the amount of time I have. I can customize my workout for weight loss, body sculpting or increased energy. The site is so easy to navigate and jam packed with content. It even allows me to make my own playlist – how cool is that!?

For my fellow gadget geeks – Gaiam TV also offers a mobile app for iPhone, iTouch and iPad (Android coming soon – please hurry!). There is also TV access if you have a Roku box or Samsung Smart TV.

Now for the most exciting news of all … It’s totally AFFORDABLE!

Right now you can try Gaiam TV for FREE with their 10-day trial. If you love it as much as I am you can get a monthly subscription for only $9.95! That’s an insane price for access to all this content and the freedom to choose when and where you workout. The subscription to Gaiam TV is totally no strings attached. There are no contracts and they allow you to easily cancel at anytime.

For me the service means I don’t have to worry if I get stuck at work late, forget to pack my sneakers in my gym bag or just don’t feel like dealing with a bunch of meat heads or waiting for machines at the gym.

So what are you waiting for? Start your free 10-day trial right now! You have nothing to lose and a whole lotta happiness to gain. I’m off to do a quick session myself now. Be sure to come back and leave me a comment about your experience and be sure to let me know if you find a great video you’d recommend I try!

Believe

“Believe … because it works” the motto of the ever popular Weight Watchers Points Plus program, which kicks off tomorrow in my office. This year the company is offering a full year membership to employees along with at work meetings. I had joined the program nearly a year ago, but I didn’t stick to it.

Take two.

I’m going to try my hardest to commit myself to getting back on track with a healthy lifestyle. I am definitely a fan of the system and I know it can work, but it takes an amount of determination as does any weight loss plan.  From planning out meals to preparation and tracking … not all that big of an effort I suppose.

So wish me luck! I am not setting a personal goal right now, just going with the standard 5% the program recommends.

I Believe …
