Booty-lifting workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re having an amazing day. We are slowly making our way through the post-vacation laundry avalanche. It feels good to be back home, but I wish that a magical fairy would appear and make all of the *stuff* disappear. That would be cool. In the meantime, you’ll find me buried beneath the rubble. Also, Amazon Christmas is starting to stack up in the entryway, so I’m trying to wrap and store everything to take with us when we move. It was equally creepy and hilarious when one of the boxes started talking: “Hi, I’m Violet.” 

I taught a fun, but slightly emotional, spin class last night. Class was PACKED and I had to tell everyone it was my last Monday teaching (they’re switching out the schedule for December). It’s my last week teaching Spin, and next week is my last week teaching barre. I guess it’s time to squeak my way into a sub schedule for when we’re in Tucson. You know how I get when my teaching hiatus is too long (<— a little crazypants). Change is a-comin’ – that’s for sure. I came home to weep silently into this spicy bowl of pho.  

Pho nomenal

(Ok, I didn’t really weep, but I was definitely a little sad.)

I also broke out the sparkly slippers because it’s rainy and chilly and wonderful over here.

So for today, I have a booty workout for you! I feel like I’ve been flooded with booty workout requests lately.

Upper body circuit workout

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Thank you so much for chiming in with your productivity tips this morning. Speaking of productivity, mine has been LOW today… because it’s 1:30pm and P is taking her first nap.

Bedtime Stretches for Relaxation

When I was cleared to work out after Liv’ s birth, I couldn’t wait to get back into sweaty interval training. Finding my personal max and soaked in sweat sounded like a dream to me. After P’s birth, I couldn’t wait to Orangetheory and Spin again. (Hopefully I’ll be back at OTF in the new […]

10 workouts you can do in 10 minutes

(not including warmup/cooldown time, mm k?) This is for all of my 10-minute workout warriors out there.   Back in the day, if I only had 10 minutes to sneak in a workout, that usually meant my workout was canceled.  I didn’t know that there’s a lot you can accomplish in 10 short minutes, and […]

Buff Bride Workout

Hi friends! how’s the morning going? Yesterday was a DAY. Of course we were sending last minute info to our accountant for taxes (#organized) and the SUV’s service light came on.

Core and cardio workout
