Fit & Faithful: Lenten Tips for Week 2

Stay On The Health Kick With Tips from ILoveKickboxing



It’s the second week of the post-Carnival cleanse that the more faithful call Lenten. Those who gave up beer for Lent may struggle with St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, while everyone who swore off sweets might want to steer clear of all the St. Joseph’s Day altars around town. As part of our ongoing series, NoDef is calling upon a different health expert each week to ask for tips for the fit and faithful. By Easter, NoDef will have 40 tips for each day of the season. Laughing Lotus Yoga’s Dana Trixie Flynn started the series last week with some tips to ease people into mindful health practices. This week, Jenny Kern of ILoveKickboxing's New Orleans outpost offers her ten tips for getting in shape as well as some advice on how to stay strong during this booze-and-bread filled weekend.

Each week, NoDef will call upon a different health expert in New Orleans to ask for tips for the fit and faithful. By Easter, NoDef will have 40 tips for each day of the season.
