On the second episode of Healthy Habits, Kimberly and I interview Susan Armijo, the Owner and Artistic Director of Centre for Dance in Dallas, Texas. The discussion centers on how dancing can lead to weight loss and healthy ways to lose baby weight for our female listeners — clearly two subjects I am an expert in.
In addition to our chat with Susan, I discuss my recent blog post over at Primility about my first couple of weeks as a “Real Food Flexitarian” and how I am going about instituting healthy habits that stick into my daily life in 2012.
