Each week we feature a celebrity fitness routine that we find to be easy, realistic and actually do-able because let’s face it, not many of us can afford a personal chef, a personal trainer and multiple trips to the gym to workout everyday; we have lives that don’t revolve around movie roles unfortunately. This week, Jennifer Love Hewitt offers great advice on positive thinking, handling peer pressure and putting a spark in your workout routines via Shape Magazine!

It’s that time of year again where we celebrate a little holiday called Cinco De Mayo. Funny thing is, it isn’t even really a significant “holiday” in the Mexican culture. Most think that it is Mexico’s Independence Day but you are ill informed. Their independence day is actually September 16th. But, we American’s like to find any excuse to party and hang out with friends. So, in honor of this seudo holiday, we’ve gathered some fun recipes and ideas for everyone in case you wanted to throw a crazy fiesta tomorrow of your own!

We have been one of the chosen teams to participate in the 2012 Red Bull Soap Box Race here in Atlanta and tonight is the night of the unveiling of all the teams soap box car sketches. A couple members of the FIT Radio team are going to see who we are up against and scoping out the competition. It should definitely be interesting! Check out these videos from previous Red Bull Soap Box Race events to get an idea of what we’re planning on seeing a mere glimpse of tonight…
And here are some pretty gnarly crashes we’re somewhat looking forward to as well…
So we aren’t sure about you guys, but sometimes eating healthy can be kinda tricky. That is why this week’s DIY/How To post is about how to make Spaghetti Squash! You know that healthy Spaghetti pasta alternative everyone has been going crazy about!? Well we found a great How To on one of our favorite sites, Dashing Dish which is a website packed with healthy alternatives of classic comfort foods. To some, just trying new foods is a big step let alone actually making them. That is why we feel that the best and easiest way to get people interested in trying new healthy recipes is to show them how easy they actually are to make. After seeing it for yourself you’ll be saying, “Spaghetti Squash is a cinch!”
I’m sure you all have seen this type of article at some point in time, “How to Prevent ‘this’ during the Summer”, “Stay hydrated”, “Don’t workout at this time of day”, yada, yada, yada. However, since it’s been several months, and it really doesn’t hurt to stay knowledgeable about being healthy, why not make time for a little refresher course?! With the hot weather quickly approaching, it is important to know the signs and risks of working out in adverse climates. Signs of heat exhaustion and dehydration are somewhat easy to identify but have you thought of just how the humidity and smog alone can affect the way your body’s ability to exert itself in higher temperatures? All the negative things that come with outdoor activity can all and should be prevented. Here are a few tips we found from Woman’s Day Magazine to help keep you informed and prepared for your next outdoor workout (and this applies to everyone, not just the ladies!)
Whatever outdoor workout you choose, keep it fun. It’s the Summer time and it is not to be wasted on monotonous and boring activities!

Recently while using Stumbleupon.com I stumbled upon (no pun intended) a website called Punchfork.com. Punchfork is a website that consists of recipes that are put up by certain food sites such as; Bon Appetit, 101 Cookbooks, etc… It takes it one step further and features the most highly talked about recipes through social networking. You can search certain dishes, ingredients, publishers or bloggers. Punchfork also allows you to filter certain dishes by selecting vegan, vegetarian, all diets, or gluten free. This site is so full of fascinating and unique recipes! Some of the tastiest recipes I’ve found include: Mac and Cheese Cupcakes, Nutella Caramel Hazelnut Brownies, and Grilled Bruschetta Chicken!
Punchfork also allows you to create your own profile where you can sign in and save your favorite dishes. Comment and let us know what you think of Punchfork!! I know what I’ll be eating tonight, what will all of you be eating?

So, if you’ve ever been to a Commercial House show then you know this video doesn’t do the light display justice but those who haven’t will be able to get a general idea of the awesomeness this kind of performance can ensue. The lights are a huge part of any DJ set and Tiesto kicked it up a notch and this past Saturday was a treat to say the least. I had to wear ear plugs because the treble was so high, and the music was still blasting with them in! Just the sight of the crowd was a sight to see, if you didn’t make it to the show or don’t live in the Atlanta area, I highly suggest you check out Tiesto’s schedule and other big House djs because it is an experience you don’t want to miss.
