Healthier Monster Cookies

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved to bake, but the problem with that is how much I love to eat it – all of it🙊. For that reason I try to avoid doing a lot of baking unless it’s on a special occasion, like for birthdays, Christmas, or if I’m entertaining.  The thing is, if the goodies are around, we seem to lack self control in our house 🙃 Continue reading “Healthier Monster Cookies”

Home Workout & Prioritizing Your Health

Home Workout & Prioritizing Your Health

Home workouts are awesome, they can be simple, efficient, and effective.  Not everyone is a gym junkie or has the desire to be one, and not everyone has the time to commit to a rec sports team, running group, etc… Life is busy and full of responsibilities so finding time can be difficult. But…..

So you tell me, who wouldn’t burn whatever’s on the barbie?! 😖 there is nothing more annoying than a burger that looks like a hockey puck🙄 Continue reading “Farro Grilled Greek Salad”

Training your CORE

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.
