7/8 Moving Boxes Bodyweight Shred Workout (glutes + hamstrings) Moving can be so chaotic!! It certainly felt like it this time, moving across the country back home to Denver. If you’ve ever moved I’m sure you can relate.
I had a lot of issues with this move – things got damaged on the moving truck, the shipping company “forgot” to ship my car, the list goes on. BUT – that’s life! Instead of focusing on all of the craziness and chaos I did the one thing I could control throughout my move which was to make a workout happen every couple days.
7/7 Motivational Mondays: Stop Beating Yourself Up for Being “Bad” Did you have an AWESOME 4th of July weekend? I got a LOT of comments today and confessions from people who went a little crazy over the holiday.
Feeling guilty, feeling bad for eating all the ice cream, drinking too much, skipping their workouts, and generally having a lot of fun.
Guess what….the only BAD part of whatever you did this weekend is that you lessened your enjoyment of the moment because you told yourself you were doing something wrong.
6/23 Motivational Mondays: You are Beautiful Say it to yourself right now, “I am beautiful.” Taking pride in your appearance and spending the time to learn how to take care of your body is a high-value move.
We respect people who take care of themselves, and we respect ourselves when we make our health a priority.
But it’s not the only thing that makes us beautiful. Where you are RIGHT NOW is exactly where you are supposed to be.
6/18 Pistol Squat Progression Last week I showed you how to work your way through a progression to do alternating pistol roll ups. How’s that going? Pistol roll ups, and pistol squats are important unilateral movements which should be practiced weekly.
Why? Because they simultaneously target the strong, working muscle groups AND the intrinsic, proprioceptive muscles that aid our body’s alignment and balance. The key in strength training – with weights or with bodyweight movement should always be a balance of strength and function.
5/26 Mint Mojito Green Smoothie This long weekend was super hot in the Bay and I wanted to make something delicious and healthy to celebrate with! This is a GREAT recipe if you’re new to green smoothies, as it’s very well balanced and easy to make – easy to drink too! – with ingredients that anyone could find. Of course adding a little rum to this to make an a healthy spin on a mojito wouldn’t be a bad idea haha – I’d for sure leave the honey out if you do that and maybe add a little ice – but this works best for me as a green smoothie reminiscent of a mojito.
5/7 Fat Burning Meal Planning I have some fantastic info for you today to help you make this week, this month – and I hope the rest of your life easier, more efficient, more affordable, and healthier when it comes to food. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
“Failing to plan is planning to fail” makes sense when it comes to our bodies, and the way we take care of them. But what if you’re a busy mom or dad, college student, or a family on a budget and figuring out all this prepping and planning just sounds hard or expensive?

Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
