Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine at Taco Mac

Thursday, November 15, 2012 1
So I am not a big soda drinker, but I have recently fallen in love with the numerous Coca-Cola freestyle machines that are popping up in restaurants all over Midtown Atlanta. Normally I see them in places like Wendy's, Willy's Mexicana Grill and Moes but today I discovered there is one just next door to my home in Taco Mac! It's isn't a self-serve freestyle machine, but don't worry, I am here to give you the scoop so you can order like a professional freestyler next time you are at Taco Mac.



I personally am a big fan of Fanta Orange, but since I don't drink sodas too often, I never order it because they rarely have low calorie options anywhere. Well no worries if you dine at Taco Mac, because not only do they have Fanta Orange ZERO, they have Cherry Zero, Raspberry Zero, Strawberry Zero and lots more. I asked my friends what their favorite Freestyle combinations were and below were the top 3 responses. Hopefully these can help begin your freestyle exploration:

1) All Fanta (my personal fave) : Mixing the lime, raspberry, grape and peach makes for a pretty refreshing fruit punch flavor. Do the ZERO option for low calories.

2) Back to Fifth Grade : When is the last time you saw Mello Yello as an option at a restaurant? Try mixing with Sprite for an interesting combination.

3) Grape Lifesaver : Fanta Grape, Sprite Grape, Grape Mellow Yello... and yes it does taste like a Grape lifesaver.



Today the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine has given patrons more options when choosing their beverage. Think you can't make a decision on your dinner entree at a restaurant? Now you will be telling your waiter "I'm going to need a few more minutes to figure out my beverage please..."

Check out the Coca-Cola's website to learn which restaurants around your home or work serve these Freestyle options!

Make sure to tweet your favorite Coca-Cola freestyle combination with #ccfreestyle!

Fitness Battalion Crossfit

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 0


Crossfit... heard of it?? Well if you follow me on Twitter you probably have...and you probably have gotten tired of seeing me talk about it over and over and over again. I swore I would never be one of those people and here I am... guilty. But hear me out for a minute and just maybe, I'll be able to inspire you to get involved.

I'm an extremely active person. Always moving cause I hate sitting still. Whether its yoga, running, biking, hiking or swimming, I'm always trying to find a way to stay active. I have been to many pilates and yoga classes but when I looked around, I never saw anyone that looked like me. I'm not an insecure person but how many pilates classes do I have to go to and be surrounded by 90 pound women to start to wonder if I fit in here. Pilates, yoga and all those classes are amazing and are a great workout, but I started to realize it wasn't the best workout for me and my body type...

So one day I was talking to an old friend from college and she was explaining to me this whole lifestyle that is Crossfit and I figured I would give it a try. I researched many different Crossfit gyms in Atlanta and ended up deciding on Fitness Battalion. Fitness Battalion seemed like a great home for me because it isn't just a gym...it is a community. With happy hours and monthly events, it also was a great way to meet some new people in the city. Saturday, January 21st, I took my introduction class bright and early at 7am. This intro class is required for anyone new to crossfit, no matter what gym you chose. It teaches you the basic workouts and correct form to prevent you from injuries. Sunday, January 22nd... I couldn't walk. I laid in bed wondering what the hell I had gotten myself into....and that was just the intro class.



The next two weeks I went to about 3 classes a week at Fitness Battalion (I would have loved to do more but I couldn't move the other half of the week). Intense. Intense. Intense. But after a couple weeks, my body and my muscles began to "get use" to the workouts and I wasn't as sore after. I have listed a couple of my workouts below from Crossfit to give you an idea of what they are. Each day at Fitness Battalion, we do a warm-up workout, then the WOD (workout of the day), and then a post workout. It is a steady hour of challenging your body in numerous different ways.

4/4/2012 WOD
3 rounds:
50 - 18 inch jumps
40 squats
30 sit-ups
20 pushups
10 pullups





3/28/2012 WOD
5 rounds:
15 deadlifts
20 box jumps
25 pullups


As you can see every day is a new workout so IT NEVER GETS BORING. Seriously, I have been doing Crossfit for over 3 months and have never repeated one workout.



What may surprise you is that it isn't just the workouts that keep me going back to Fitness Battalion everyday... it's the people. I look around and I am surrounded by strong women who are built like me. It feels great to be in a gym where you feel more confident about yourself each time you go. I now go to Fitness Battalion 6 days a week. I have cut down my 10k time by 4 minutes and am feeling stronger and stronger everyday. And on top of that, I have a new self-confidence and some pretty awesome new friends...

Calling All Speed Demons - The Red Bull Soapbox Race is Back!

Monday, March 5, 2012 1



Ready!  Set!  Go!  Back by popular demand, Red Bull Soapbox Race, featuring some of the wildest legal street racing around, is set to once again screech into Atlanta for a 2012 pit stop.   While the city is renowned for its traffic gridlock, on Saturday, June 9 the usually clogged streets of Midtown near Piedmont Park will transform into a bona fide drag strip!  Approximately 40 teams will compete in this non-motorized racing event, which encourages gear heads and adrenaline junkies alike to break out their toolboxes and build outrageous human-powered vehicles designed to thrill the masses. Although it’s the same location as the 2009 Red Bull Soapbox Race Atlanta, racers beware- you’re in for a whole new set of challenges!

CALLING ALL SPEED DEMONS

Ever wanted to speed past a crowd of thousands as they cheer you on to victory?  Well, Red Bull Soapbox Race is calling!  Teams can enter their engineering marvels and crazy concepts with a formal application found at www.redbullsoapboxrace.com starting on Wednesday, January 18.  Don’t delay – get that concept submitted ASAP, as applications MUST be submitted by Monday, April 16. 

Teams will need more than just courage to claim victory on these city streets as they will be judged on three criteria:  speed, creativity and showmanship.  So, make it fast… and fun!  Previous events have proven that the most outlandish crafts are typically the big winners, so put on your creativity caps and let loose.  Past podium finishers have included a Philly Cheese Steak, the Mach I from “Speed Racer,” a Giant Troll and the flying Winnebago from “Spaceballs.” 

DRIVERS, START YOUR IMAGINARY ENGINES

Each soapbox must be powered by gravity and imagination, which means no stored power or external energy sources allowed.  And size does matter!  All vehicles must be less than six feet wide and 12 feet in length, no more than seven feet high and cannot weigh more than 176 lbs (not including the driver).  Drivers must be at least 18 years old, but engineers and grease monkeys of all ages are welcome to be part of the five person team. 

The Atlanta event will be the 12th U.S. Red Bull Soapbox Race to ever take place, with the first stateside race held in St. Louis in 2006.  The global event dates back to 2000, when it first took place in Belgium, and has since visited almost 30 countries.   Other stateside pit stops planned for 2012 include Red Bull Soapbox Race Texas, which is set to take place in Dallas on September 15.

For more information and to apply, visit www.redbullsoapboxrace.com.  A selection of high-resolution event photos from around the world can be downloaded at www.redbull-photofiles.com.
