Training your CORE

I’ll be honest, the extent of my core/abs training (aside from bracing with my core when I’m performing any exercise) is adding an abs exercise here and there between sets of another exercise.  I almost always pair exercises together because I like to keep myself moving throughout my workouts, so adding a few core exercises is a simple and efficient way to train another muscle group in the same time frame.

Upper Body Blast

Good morning! We are into the week and I hope everyone had an eventful Monday and good weekend! My Monday was a bit of a catch up since we travelled to Canmore, Alberta for a family wedding.  Ahhhh I can’t put into words how much I love big family weddings – seriously. LOVE ❤️ I’m talking Aunts, Uncles, cousins x 100, their kids, my parents, brothers, sister, their spouses, and their kids. It’s a lot, and fairly intense when everyone comes together from all corners of the country for such a short time, but when we are all together, it’s the best possible craziness.  My heart feels so happy when I’m surrounded by all the people I grew up with, and no matter how much time goes by between seeing one another, we just pick up where we left off – we laugh, we act like we haven’t really grown up, aaaaand we usually have a few drinks 🍹🤗  Read more

Summer is coming! So we should talk about ABS…

Summer is right around the corner! I. Can’t. Wait!  When I think about summer I think about the sun….patio season…..the beach….rotating my closet by jamming all my cozy sweaters and boots as far into the back of my closet as possible.  Then bring on, all of my fun summery tops, shorts, dresses, sandals, every last thing ……but I should still go shopping 🙂

Summer is the season that feels better to be in your best shape, whatever that vision is for yourself.  It’s a fun time of year to dress with the trends and maybe even throw a bikini on and feel good about it.  shutterstock_592075217

As summer fast approaches, you may be feeling a little extra motivated to make some changes to your body.  The good news is, there is still some time to get ready for the bikinis and fun summer clothes. But here’s the thing, if you’re making the effort to change your body, you want to be doing the right things. You need to look at what you’re eating, and have a plan for your workouts. Read more

Fullbody Stability Ball Workout

Hi Monday, I hope you all had a lovely weekend 🙂 I also hope that you all made the roasted veggie recipe I posted last week 🙂 If not, shame on you lol, but honestly, I think you should give it a try – it’s so simple and SO delicious. BUT, when you do, please do not leave out the tahini dressing because it adds so much to the dish 🤗

It’s Monday, a start to a new week work, workouts, and healthy habits.  This week I wanted to put together a fullbody workout using just one simple piece of equipment, a Stability Ball (or Swiss Ball). These balls are a great piece of equipment because there are so many exercises you can preform with it.  In addition, pretty much every gym has them and it’s an easy, inexpensive, small piece of equipment that you can have at home.
