Day 23

Finally, I got to the gym this morning. Last night I decided I was getting out of bed the first time my alarm went off, and I did:) It probably helped that I moved the alarm to the floor at the end of the bed so I had to get out of bed to turn…

Tip of the Day!

Get a Pinterest if you don’t have one yet! I absolutely love Pinterest. Just this morning I signed into my account and found two new articles on my homepage that I probably never would have come across without it. #1: 15 FREE Jillian Michael’s workouts. Some are full length, but others are just tutorials telling…

Day 22

It was another early morning for me…I should have woken up early to go to the gym, but I slept in instead. So, you know what I did? I have already set out my workout clothes for after work and planned what I am going to do today! It is always more of a mental…

Day 21

We are getting towards the end of the month, and I can tell the Holidays are really getting the best of me. I had a pretty big lazy day yesterday (got caught up on The Blacklist – great show!) so today I am going to take every opportunity to get my body moving. Step 1:…

It is possible to get an upper body workout in at home without weights. Tonight I have to cook for our Christmas Eve party, wrap presents, and finish cleaning/doing laundry, so I am going to do this quick but super effective at home HIIT workout: It says “Upper Body” but it is still a total…

This week is all about efficiency. I am going to do total body HIIT workouts (some days with weights some w/o) for the next three days to maximize results in the shortest amount of time. Choose one of these, or even do one today and one tomorrow:

Holiday Countdown!

I am going to challenge everyone to be on their best behavior for the next 2 1/2 days! How hard can that be, right? Don’t eat white flour, high fat, and high sugar foods (or foods with added sugar) until Christmas Eve. So, that means eggs, oatmeal, and fruit for breakfast and lots of leafy…
