I’m Too Chunky for This Shirt

’Tis the season for us to eschew the light grilled fare we associate with warm weather for foods that will warm us from the inside out. A few weeks ago, a cup of soup would have caused sweat beads to form on even the coolest forehead, but nowadays the dropping temps mean a bowl of chili con carne can bring the life back into your chilly digits. But don’t be mad at your stomach for craving heavy foods; the ol’ girl is just trying to build up the blubber to keep herself warm. It’s up to you to amp up your calorie-burning by any means necessary. Thank bejeebus for the ECA/Thrive! 2008 convention, which will bring the best in fitness, nutrition, conditioning, and training to the Miami Beach Resort and Spa Hotel.

Join the buff-bod brigade at various seminars this Thursday through Sunday, and brush up on various techniques from aquatics and aerobics to spinning and self-defense. Thursday night from 7 to 9 is “Pick up the Beat,” a night of live drumming accompanied by a DJ’s spins, created to let the rhythm give you a full-body workout. Registration for the conference starts at $309.
