This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

For the last 3 weeks I’ve been clinging to Christmas Abbott’s Badass Body Challenge for my home workouts. I haven’t missed a single day and I’ve been working out 5 days a week. This is the best streak I’ve been on in a couple years now. Praise. the. Lord. I’m loving this program so far and I’m definitely noticing changes already so I wanted to share my experience so far. I’m a paid member of this program (worth every penny!) {Read More}

Weekly Workout Recap #4: Thinner, Leaner, Stronger

This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

Okay so I’ve already switched up my workouts. For the last 3 weeks I’ve been following a routine inspired by Thinner, Leaner, Stronger. I just have to sub a few exercises since I don’t have cables or a leg press machine but it’s all good. StrongLifts 5×5 is a solid workout program too but it’s just a little too repetitive for me. It’s definitely a great choice if quick strength gains are what you’re after. But now I’m following Thinner, {Read More}

I hope you had a great weekend! My youngest and I share birthdays and we celebrated with family on Saturday by finally seeing Beauty and the Beast. We all loved it. It’s so good! It’s Monday which means it’s time for another weekly home workout recap. Last week I started a 4 day split workout that my husband is doing also. I’m really liking it so far and was able to up the weights on quite a few moves during the second week. {Read More}

Happy Halloween! It’s time to get ready for a new week! Super stinky that Halloween is on a Monday this year. That shouldn’t be allowed. I’m definitely more excited about watching the Vikes tonight on Monday Night Football! I’m also excited to be starting a new workout routine this week. More on that a little bit later. First, I’d like to share a couple of things I saw over the weekend that I think you might appreciate. The first is {Read More}

My Workout Routine for Flexibility and Fat Loss

Flexibility and fat loss are two areas I’m really wanting to focus on right now. Lexapro has been amazing for my mind but when it comes to my body..not so much. You can read about my connection between Lexapro and weight gain here. It’s the only ongoing unpleasant side effect that I’ve experienced on this medication but it’s killer. My ultimate goal is to just be able to fit into my normal clothes again. Some of them have been feeling pretty {Read More}

Charlie Mike Workout Update

A couple weeks ago I finally started the Charlie Mike workout program so I wanted to give a little update on my progress with it. *I don’t take before/after photos or measurements anymore because I tend to over-analyze and focus on the numbers and my trouble spots. My fitness journey is a journey. I’m not always going to be the “after”. There is no after until my journey ends.  This workout is tough but I’m finding it to be one {Read More}

One of my August goals was to complete the first four weeks of the Charlie Mike workout (created by trainer Ashley Horner). Well, I know I won’t get the first four weeks done because I just started yesterday… but, I finally started! And I’m a pretty big fan so far. I won’t bore you with the details of every single workout all the time but here’s what day 1 looked like: First up: Max bench press – 85#. I haven’t {Read More}

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! If you know anything about 21 Day Fix or 21 {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}

Good morning, good morning, good morning! Happy two-more-days-till-Friday day! Last week I posted a workout review on the Bodypump #95 workout from Les Mills On Demand and I got a pretty nice response. That tells me there are people out there interested in these workouts! For this reason I definitely wanted to share the super ultra challenging workout I did yesterday. It was a Grit workout. Whomever decided on the name Grit is genius because wow. I learned I don’t have much, {Read More}
