Country Heat Beachbody Workout by Autumn Calabrese

When I first heard that a program called Country Heat was coming to Beachbody, I wasn’t super thrilled. Kinda more of the opposite. I like some country music but I just wasn’t sure about what to think of a line dancing workout. When I heard that Autumn Calabrese was the trainer for the program, I put a little more trust into it because clearly that lady knows what she’s doing!

Good morning, good morning, good morning! Happy two-more-days-till-Friday day!

Whomever decided on the name Grit is genius because wow. I learned I don’t have much, {Read More}

Cardio Challenge!

I feel like I’m obsessed with challenges lately and I’m not sure why. It’s not because I need more on my plate for gosh sakes. I decided that my next fitness-related challenge is going to be a cardio challenge. Why? Because I seriously lack the motivation to do as much cardio as I probably should. Really though, because I hardly ever do it. I know! Shame on me. I love the effects of a great cardio workout. It completely clears {Read More}

This past weekend was probably one of the busiest in a long time. It was also the fastest a weekend has flew by in some time but we got a LOT of stuff done around the house! I think we made 3 trips to Menards? It’s funny how you can never manage to get everything you need in one trip. Why does that happen? If you’ve seen my 101 in 1001 Days list you’ll notice that I have a goal {Read More}

It’s Thursday at 10 am and I’ve already completed two workouts and I have a lil celebratory moment to share. In my most recent Chalean Extreme update, I talked about push-ups.

After that set Chalene does a “breakdown” set where you wait 10 seconds and then do 3 {Read More}

Have you ever tried working out with kids? It’s interesting. Watch out for cruising strollers and kids jumping around! This video shows my 3rd attempt at Turbofire’s Greatest HIITs.
