It’s been a tough week in our household. The two year anniversary of my stepdad’s passing was Friday and my husband’s grandmother passed away the night before (after getting text messages daily of her health declining) and we celebrated her life this past Monday. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions and quite the whirlwind for the past week. Grandma would’ve turned 95 next month so she definitely lived a long, healthy life but you’re still never ready for loved ones to {Read More}

For the past few weeks I’ve been on a Les Mills On Demand journey. Okay, mostly Bodypump and I’m loving it! I tend to stick to the Bodypump workouts because they’re my absolute favorite. The most recent one I tried was Bodypump #89. Whoa. Baby. One of the reasons I love Bodypump so much is because you get a nice full body workout all at once. I like my workout splits sometimes too but it’s nice to just get the full {Read More}

Build Your Butt {a How-to of Sorts}

Building your butt is probably easier than you might think. Without getting too graphic, my backside is naturally pretty bubbly so to prevent a whole lot of excess jiggle and to keep it lifted (I’ve had two pregnancies – both c-sections), I have to work it. I don’t think I’ve ever had a flat butt in my life though I used to wish that I did! I used to get teased when I was younger because I had a “bubble {Read More}

Ab + Arm Workouts from YouTube

This morning I woke up wanting to check out a few new-to-me workouts. When it comes to ab workouts and arm workouts, I definitely prefer arm workouts. I like arm workouts because I feel like I notice change in them much faster than with ab workouts. There’s just something about ab work I don’t really like. The ab muscles are my least favorite group to train but I know having a strong core (abs, lower back, butt) is important – {Read More}

Good afternoon! I hope it’s sunny and warm where you are (and no earthquakes). This morning I woke up to snow falling, ONCE AGAIN. While I realize this is not necessarily out of the ordinary for March, winter has warn out its welcome this year! It’s still snowing and I think there are at least 4 inches on the ground. We didn’t think it was supposed to snow until the overnight hours but apparently we got a head start. Maybe {Read More}

It’s morning time again. I’m getting ready to take the boys to the dentist. They’ve been so crazy about brushing their teeth the past few days! I guess that’s a good thing. Wish they were always that excited to brush their teeth! Yesterday I almost forgot to eat lunch (how does that even happen?!) so I ended up eating lunch around 4 and then having dinner around 7:30. We had baked tilapia and it was pretty good. I never used {Read More}

Today (Friday) is one a those days I wish I didn’t have 2 large flights of stairs in my home. When your legs feel like Jell-o, stairs just aren’t safe. If you wanna make your legs wobbly and your heart race, kill ’em… …with this: Let’s break it down: I rested 2-3 minutes between squat sets I did 50 consecutive kettlebell swings (w/my 16# Demonbell) I rested ~90 seconds between curtsy sets (and lunged sloooooowly) Weighted burpees were the devil {Read More}

Happy Tuesday! I hope all the Moms had a really nice Mother’s Day! We spent most of the day outside and finally got some color from the sun after like 8 months of winter. For Mother’s Day my husband and kids got me a DemonBell which is something I’ve been wanting since I laid my eyes on one. They’re pretty expensive for a “weight” but worth it to me. It’s nice to splurge every once in a great while and {Read More}
