Oh Yes It Was Ladies Night at #Title Boxing Cary

AFM ladies night

AFM ladies night


As many of you may know my family and I have embarked on a journey to get into shape. With that in mind, we were offered an opportunity to work out at a gym that is not your typical gym.

First, the atmosphere is awesome. The employees there are just so friendly and crazy as well. They make working out fun. Even though it is almost an hour drive to the gym from my home it is worth it to me. The little town that I live in does not offer a gym like that. Title Boxing Cary is a one of a kind place. With that said, a week ago last Friday they hosted a Ladies Night. If you are not familiar with Title, it is a workout like no other. The first class or shot as they like to call it is free. They even provide you with gloves for your first class. The class is divided into three parts: a 15 minute warm up, (8) 3 minute rounds where you are hitting the bag and a 15 minute cool down where you work on your abs. There are clocks (timers) posted all around the gym. I love that because for me that is a motivator. I find that if I can get through half of the class than I can make it through the rest and it gets easier as I go.

With that Friday being Ladies Night, members were encouraged to bring friends to work out. I got on Facebook and started tagging people. I told them to tag people if they wanted to go. My friend Tanisha started tagging – we ended up with six extra people going with Maddie, my oldest and myself. The drive up to Cary was horrible- it reminded me why I hate driving at night and in traffic. We got caught in a traffic jam because there was an accident up ahead. I called to let Meredith, the assistant manager, know that we would be there but we were stuck in traffic. We finally got there arriving about 10 minutes into the class, so we missed part of the warm up. Once we got all our gear on – gloves and hand wraps- we were ready to go. Of course, wouldn’t you know it that was when I had to use the bathroom LOL.

The class was awesome. This was the first time that I had taken a class were there were two trainers involved. Nate( who you might remember from the first class we took) and Blake ( I have yet to take a class with him- but I am looking forward to it) were awesome. The ladies that came with me had a blast. Just look at the pictures.

And finally I get to workout a little with Nate.

After the class, everyone headed over to Bella Mia for ½ price appetizers. The employees from Title even came to hang out. How many people can say that they hang out with their trainers. I learned that they are as crazy and nice as they are in class.

If you are looking for an awesome workout and you live in the Raleigh/Cary area then checkout Title Boxing Club Cary.They are having HUGE Black Friday specials on memberships, personal training, and retail!  You don’t want to miss these deals!If you do not live in the area check and see if there is a franchise near you because I promise you that this is one workout that you will leave wanting to come back and do it again.

Don’t take my word for it, try it out for yourself. Remember your first shot AKA class is FREE!!!!

Recipe: Sweet Potato Skins

AFM Recipes


AFM Recipes

Five 8-oz. orange sweet potatoes, uniform in shape
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1 1/4 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. On a microwave-safe plate, microwave for 15 minutes, until potatoes are soft.

Once cool enough to handle, slice each potato in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the insides, leaving about 1/4 inch inside the skin. Discard the potato pulp (or reserve for another use).

Place hollow shells on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Bake until the edges begin to crisp, about 10 minutes.

Top with brown sugar and marshmallows. Bake until marshmallows puff up and lightly brown, 3 – 4 minutes. Enjoy!

Get Your Guest Room Ready for The Holidays

AFM Guest room

AFM Guest room



The holidays are right around the corner and with that come house guests as well. Here are some things to make sure that your guest room is ready for the expected and the unexpected company.

  • First make sure that you layer blankets and comforters so that your guests can sleep in the way they are accustomed. For me I would want extra blankets to cuddle under but my husband would want less blankets. So having extra on hand will help to accommodate any of your guest’s preferences.
  • Make sure that the windows are properly covered. We all want our privacy don’t we?
  • Add a chair if you have some space that way your guest can go back to their room to read a book sitting up instead of lying down on the bed. Also this will give them a quiet space to work on their laptop of they need to, you know some people have to work over the holidays because of deadlines. Also make sure to have a flat cleared surface as well.
  • Make sure there is enough lighting for them to read. Consider investing in a reading lamp for your guest room.
  • An alarm clock would be a great addition to a guest space as well.

Here are some other suggestions to add to make your guest room even cozier. Most of the items you can pick up throughout the year at sales, thrift stores and yard sales. So here is a shopping list for you.

  • Tissues
  • Garbage cans
  • Extra hangers for the closets
  • Towels
  • Mirror
  • Two small baskets – one can be filled with snacks and the other with toiletries that most people forget to pack. This could be where all those freebies and samples that we send for throughout the year can go. You can buy some very pretty baskets at the dollar store as well.

Most of these items can be found at the Dollar Store. If you follow these tips than your guests will be comfortable and may never want to leave. LOL

New Trailer “Muppets Most Wanted”




Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G. Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, “Muppets Most Wanted” hits the big screen March 21, 2014.

Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey, Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour where they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper.
