As I first mentioned in episode #28, at the start of the new year I began a BurstFIT program from Dr. Josh Axe and it has been a huge success. It is an explosive workout and I have already seen great results. I have modified his program and created my own version, but the basic structure is great.
The Burr Grinder that I mentioned I bought in episode #35, has also been fantastic. I bought the highest rated coffee bean grinder on Amazon and it has lived up the hype. The grinder is much quieter than my older spinning blade model and it definitely improved the flavor of my espresso!
