The Lemon Method: Meditation, Pilates and Interval Training.

Shown Above Deb Lemon, Owner Of Bodies By Pilates

One of our first orders at Arebesk was from this amazing lady Deb Lemon who owns Bodies By Pilates and is responsible for the LEMON METHOD which is 5 min of meditation, 45 min Pilates and 10 min high intensity interval training. I personally love meeting strong women who are smart and driven and Deb is definitely one of those women. She has opened many successful studios and has valuable experience in this field. You can get to know Deb by reading a littel about her below.
A Little About Deb Lemon: 
Peak Pilates Master Instructor 
PMA Certified 
Booty Barre Certified 
ACE Certified Personal Trainer 
Maddog Spinning Instructor
It all started with exercise as something that was “good for me”, but grew much deeper when we I met Pilates!  I felt the benefits in just a few sessions, then when I started noticing changes in my body and performance it became a full fledged Love Affair that has lasted a lifetime.  Pilates is my passion and I love sharing it with others.
 I discovered exercise as the cure for my suffering of asthma at the tender of age of 16. When I turned 18, I asked my parents for $150 so I could get certified to teach aerobics. I had no idea that this would be the “vehicle” for my life’s journey that has brought me so much Joy & Love, along with good health & happiness!

I completed my degree in Education/Teaching and graduated.  I’ve had several jobs over the years, but all involved teaching.  Learning & Teaching were my passion, so I continued to grow my fitness resume’ becoming certified in Step, Spinning, Boxing, Aquatics, Barre, Yoga & Personal Training.  I worked part-time teaching classes while my children were young and eventually came to realize I knew what I wanted to do with my life.  Finally Teaching Fitness became full-time for me around the age of 31 leaving behind schools and successful corporations like Vanguard.

An “opportunity” was presented to me, one of my clients suggested I audition as a Fitness Model for QVC and I succeeded.   This is where I met Mari Windsor…my very first Pilates teacher.  I spent 18 years with QVC while learning from Mari and other Master Teachers along the way.  At first, Pilates was about being on TV, but over the years it came to be a love affair that I never wanted to end.  I saw how it changed my body, how it made me feel and I was driven to share this with others.

I opened my first Pilates studio before group studios were a “thing” in the United States, as I wanted to bring Pilates to the masses in the most affordable way possible.   I share the belief that Pilates is for everyone; they just don’t know it yet.  We opened 3 additional studios in Pa and achieved my Master Instructor certification from Peak Pilates.  Becoming a Master Instructor was my biggest accomplishment, it was a multi year journey and it drew upon every ounce of my passion for Pilates, Learning & Teaching I possessed but It was a fabulous experience.  I am “my personal best” when I am training teachers to become their best!

I am also most proud of being referred to as The Body Boss because I have transformed so many bodies…and so many lives.  When it comes to good health I walk the walk I talk.  My studio becomes a second home for people where we truly do life together.  I thrive on being “the real deal”.  My calling is to share anything and everything I can to help people realize they can come to know and love what “fit” feels like for them.

NAIL AND BONE. BUY A POLISH. HELP A PET!

 

I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Nail and Bone, Steve.  I was impressed by his passion for polish and his pure heart to help his cause.  Nail and Bone is a great line of 8 free, cruelty free, vegan and made in the USA nail polish that everyone can enjoy.  I was impressed with the packaging and the quality of the polish.  My daughter and I were able to use this product together without me worrying about it being harmful.  I love that I didnt have to buy a seperate polish for my daughter we had everything we needed right in the kit.    I love the pet names for the polish and the glitter on top of the red was one of mine and my daughers favorites.  this will make for a perfect mothers day gift as well! Polish is $10 each and there is a 3 pack option for $30.

About Nail & Bone:

nail & bone was inspired by Steve’s desire to focus on social impact and Missy’s passion for pet rescue and adoption. For years, Steve was looking for a product to bring to market that could empower consumers to do good. The unknown was the product. Until one day, Steve & Missy met someone who manufactures nail polish in California. Knowing millions of us have a special place in our hearts for pets, Steve had an epiphany: “let’s provide women and girls a socially conscious nail polish line that supports pet rescue and adoption…giving homeless and sheltered pets a second chance at happiness!”

Harnessing the power of purpose to effectuate positive change is at the heart of nail & bone. We set out to create a line of fun, friendly, pretty polishes that are salon quality, cruelty free, 8-free, and made in the USA to support a cause we care deeply about.

nail & bone is our way of giving back to amazing charitable organizations & improving the lives of as many dogs as we possibly can!

only 1.4 million of them find homes

1.2 million are euthanized due to overcrowding

New Balance Stepping Up It’s Game With Gold Dip Sneakers!

 

 

I am completely obsessed with these 574 Gold Dip Women’s sneakers by New Balance.  You can rock these sneakers both day and night and the gold on the back of the sneakers adds just the right amount of bling without being too much.  I tried these sneakers on and they run true to size.  I was able to rock them with a cute dress or with my active-wear.  It is not often I get too excited about a sneaker but this one is well made and the style is off the hook.

Add Vibrant Colors To Everyday Recipes With Superfood Powders!

When I came Across Unicorn Superfoods superfood powders I was salivating at the mouth! I tried a parfait at an event I went to and it was absolutely delicious….and then I found out it was good for me. Was I hearing correctly? A colored powder that was good for us? Being a mom of 2 kids I am always trying to come up with fun recipes for our family.  This company is selling Superfood Powders which are vegan, gluten free and so good for you. This is purely genius! There are 4 powders to choose from and I love the catchy, fun names like Pink Pitaya and Black Goji Berry.  The packaging is super cute and fun just like this product.  I cant wait to get my packets in the mail and create some fun foods and treats for my family!

What Is A Superfood?

Superfoods are foods that are considered high in nutrient value and beneficial to your well-being.

Blue Spirulina (Phycocyanin) is a blue pigment derived from blue-green algae. It is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage.

High nutritional contentincluding B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid).

Boosts the immune system as well as improving memory, lowering cholesterol, preventing heart disease and healing wounds.

Increases energy and metabolism which keeps you active throughout the day and shed more fat while rested.

Can improve digestion and bowel health as it contains chlorophyll. This regularizes the digestive system and promotes healthy bacteria in the gut.


Pink Pitaya (dragon fruit) is a super fruit grown in tropical regions of South America and South East Asia.

High in fiber, which assists in reducing the risk of heart disease, controls blood sugar levels, regulates bowel movements and helps with healthy weight loss.

Rich in antioxidants which helps fight off stress, heart disease, cancer and other diseases. It is also rich in Vitamin C which helps protect the immune system and Magnesium which helps relax your muscles.

Low amount of cholesterol, which ultimately helps the body break down this fruit quickly, keeping you happy and healthy. It is the perfect fruit to maintain your weight and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Contains essential fatty acidswhich nourishes hair, skin and nails. It also provides a balance to the skin’s metabolism by controlling the flow of oils and nourishing collagen (the supporting structure beneath the skin).


Black goji berries are an incredibly rare and exotic fruit grown wildly in the extreme and harsh environments of Central Asia. They have been used extensively in Chinese medicine to treat heart disease, hypertension, abnormal menstruation and menopause.

Magnificent antioxidant capabilities, as it is the richest known plant source of OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin) which helps eliminate toxins.

Strong nutrient profile – it is 20 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

Black goji berries may have the ability to slow down the aging process, lower cholesterol, and to prevent and slow the growth of cancer.

Treats dizziness, relieves stress and clears vision of the eye. Goji berries contain a higher concentration of beta carotene than carrots, which helps improve eye health and vision.


Beetroots are rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, folate and manganese, along with other nutrients.

Lowers your blood pressure – drinking beetroot juice may help to lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. Beetroots are also valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify your blood and liver.

Boosts your stamina – if you need a boost to make it through your next workout, beetroot powder may prove valuable. It helps nitrates turn to nitric oxide, which may reduce the oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise as well as enhance tolerance to high-intensity exercise.

Reduces signs of aging – beetroot powder helps provide a fair and radiant look to your face and skin. It also contains antioxidants which help in reducing free radicals in the body and reduces early signs of aging.

Rich in valuable nutrients and fiber – beetroots are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).

Shown Above Adidas Satin Trefoil Sweater, Arebesk Grip Socks, Alo Leggings and Gucci Sunglasses

ADIDAS has released a satin Trefoil sweater which I found in Red and Navy Blue. I love this sweater because the satin has a little shine but it is not too much and looks great dressed up with heels and leather pants or dressed down with sweats and sneakers.  I especially loved the shade of red I got and got so many compliments already. I rocked this red Trefoil sweater with wide leg faux leather pants, black Adidas sneakers and a pair of Gucci sunglasses.

Arebesk grip socks also pairs really nicely with this sweater and gives it an upscale street style you will be sure to get many compliments on!

THE TREFOIL LOGO & IT’S ORIGIN:

In 1972, the world turned to Germany when the Olympic Games opened in Munich. Just in time for the event, adidas presented a new logo that was here to stay: the Trefoil. Then, symbolizing performance. Today, the adidas Originals collection stands for lifestyle and street. Times may change, but trefoiled quality will always remain

For someone like me who is always on their phone and working on social media it is important to use products that can help with photo quality and a product that actually does what it says! I broke down and bought a LUMEE when it came out because of all the hype but I really only use it once in a while and mainly in the evenings ( not to mention it is big and bulky which is not for me).  I came across SOCIALITE and thought how great to have a camera light that I can clip on and off and store it nicely in my purse when not in use. It runs on 2 AAA batteries and when I got my package in the mail I couldn’t wait to try it out and compare it to LUMEE and other brands that offer lighting for our phones.

I have always had a big chest since I was in high school and after 2 kids I was really in need of a good workout bra that does not make me look like I have a uni boob! I also needed a bra that offers good support. I think I have purchased just about every sports bra on the market and the ones that kind of work look like there are seat belts for shoulder straps which was definitely not my style.  I came across a brand called Chantelle. I tried on the low impact wireless sports bra which is fashion forward (mesh design), dosent give me a uni boob and had great support so wanted to share this with everyone that has the same issues I do when shopping for a great sports bra!

You Will Go Bananas Over This Smoothie If you are a coffee lover!

I recently purchased a smoothie from a juice store that was similar to this and loved it so much I tweeked the ingredients a bit to come up with an all natural blend with no extra sugar added. Very easy to make and you can  just take out the coffee if you are giving it to kids.

Recipe:

  • 1/4 cup ice
  • 4-5 cups unsweetened almond / coconut milk
  • 2 bananas
  • 3-4 dates
  • 1 TBS cinnamon
  • 1 TBS Peanut Butter ( or more if you like)
  • 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup cold brew ( I like Peetes)

Blend it all up and you have an amazing smoothie/ shake ready to go and it will keep you full for a long time.

ENJOY!
