Friend-Feature Friday: No need to pay for a gym membership! Our blogger friend shows us how.

Happy Friday! Today I wanted to feature a new blogger friend of mine, Stephanie. She has a great site, Infinite Life Fitness. I love what she does – she promotes the fact that you DON’T have to pay for an expensive gym membership to be fit and live a healthy lifestyle.

I, personally, haven’t had a gym membership for years. There are so many other ways to be active and stay fit! Here is a guest post from Stephanie, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

My name is Stephanie and I started a new blog called Infinite Life Fitness (at infinitelifefitness.com). I am here to share so amazing workout and health tips to you! Any day is the right day to start a new healthier lifestyle. You can start by making small changes with your diet or by adding more physical activities to your daily routine and then gradually add more and new things to that new healthier lifestyle!


As the holiday season is quickly approaching keep in mind there are small things you can change to help limit the amount of calories that you intake. Now, the holiday season is the perfect time to meet up with old friends and family for some holiday treats. Here is an example of a low calorie drink option you can order or make during this X-Mas break:


Frozen Virgin Lime Margaritas

Start to Finish: 10 minutes
Makes: 10 servings

12-ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
1/2 cup light orange juice or orange liqueur
4 cups ice cubes
1/2 of a medium lime
Coarse salt
Orange slices (optional)


1. In a blender container combine limeade concentrate, and orange juice. Cover and
blend until combined. With blender running, add ice cubes, one at a time, through opening
in lid, blending until mixture becomes slushy.


2. Cut a thick lime slice; cut slice in half. Rub slices around rims of eight glasses. Dip rims
into a dish of coarse salt to coat rims. Pour mixture into prepared glasses. Garnish glasses
