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.

Lazy Burrito Bowls

Sometimes I’m lazy.  So lazy that just the thought of what to make for dinner leaves me feeling exhausted.🙈 Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like this sometimes! 😬 A few days ago I was in that state, but since I have 3 other people to feed (who are ALWAYS looking for food), I had to pull it together.

Sometimes when I’m looking for inspiration I open the fridge door and I stare.  I look each shelf up and down, then I open the freezer door and stare some more, at least I feel like I’ve covered all my options.  This time after all my staring I fell back on one of my quick and easy (lazy🤗) go-to’s, Burrito Bowls 💡 Read more

Full body Tuesday

Goooooood morning! I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are (unless you live here in Vancouver) but Holy $h!t did it rain yesterday, and right now as I look outside, it still looks so nasty out there. I know I keep saying that summer is right around the corner, but I’m beginning to feel annoyed with the 7 day forecast that only ever shows rain ☔️ Please tell me I’m not the only one who complains like this?!🙊

Anyways, I hope you had time to take a quick look at my post from yesterday, I thought it might be helpful to talk a little bit about getting your beach bod ready for summer👙🤗 You still have some time but you need to get started now if you haven’t already! Hopefully you found some of my tips helpful, let me know what you think, or better yet, let me know if you have any questions 🙂 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
