Union Square Farmers Market: Hell yeah!

Man, it’s hot out there! Too hot. I knew it was going to be a very tough task to take the subway from Harlem down and across to Union Square for the farmers market, but I took my man-pill and did it. And, boy, did it pay off.

The farmers market was so boss today. There was an abundance of everything, and I didn’t even get there early for the morning rush. It should have been leftovers-town by the time I made it there, but there was still SO much to choose from. It blew my mind.

Why go to the farmers market? Isn’t it a bunch of farming hippies who will try to make you read Kerouac and sing Hare Krishna? (Actually, there are hippies that dance around and sing Hare Krishna, but they’re off to the side.) I digress!

Super Fun “Turbo Jam Fat Blaster” Time

So, it ends up that I am unfortunately sore from my first spinning class. Not in a good “I really feel my quads and glutes” way. In a “I KNEW that seat was doing damage” way.

I was running low on energy and time, so I decided to pop on my old faithful: Turbo Jam Fat Blaster.

This is Chalene and the crew from "Turbo Jam: Fat Blaster." As you do it over the years, as I have done, you'll get to know "Take it Easy" Mindy, Fierce Tranny in the Back, and The Gloved Latin Lover.
