20-minute head to toe workout

(all you need is a pair of dumbbells)

Hi! Hope you’re enjoying the day so far. It was a perfect cloudy morning and afternoon: a trip to the library, soup in the slow cooker, and cleaning up around the house. I feel like I’m currently surrounded by a mountain of laundry, but at the same time, I kind of love sorting and folding tiny dresses and jammies. (Can’t really say the same about allthetowels. Blah. Haha)

Some bummer news: our goldfish friend, Goldie, has swam to greener lakes. We noticed she was acting lethargic last week and had a fuzzy spot on the side of her body, so the Pilot went to PetSmart to talk with the fish expert about it. We got medicine for her, but within a couple of days, she was gone. I think I took it harder than anyone. Liv was just like, “Oh, she died?” and I’m feeling emotional about a fish that surprisingly lived for a few months. I still have no idea how my elementary school goldfish lived for something like 8 years. 

A workout to share today: 20 minute total body workout! This is one I did this weekend, and I loved that it worked every muscle group quickly. These moves are meant to be completed circuit-style, from one exercise to the next. Depending on how much time you have, you can do the entire set up to three times. As always, talk with a doc before making any fitness changes and honor your body. Modify if you need to! Here’s the workout:

And a gif I’m posting as a test to see if it works!

Lunge and curl


Please let me know if you give this workout a try!!

Also, I’ll be teaching at an event in a couple of weeks and we get to choose what format to teach. I was thinking of doing Zumba and barre, but could do anything like a HIIT/bodyweight combo, DJ dance, or bootcamp. Would love to hear any ideas or suggestions!!

Hope you have a wonderful night!

Compound crusher workout


  Hi guys! Hope you’re enjoying your day so far <3 It’s been an interesting week. I fully believe that the full moon affects energy/mood/toddler behavior. During naptime, I usually blitz through the to-do list, but this week, I watched a couple episodes of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. […]

Resistance band loop leg workout


(that’s a mouthful, eh?) The resistance band loop is one of my favorite barre tools. It looks so innocent, but it BURNs. It’s an awesome way to target your outer thighs (abductor muscles) and your glute medius. I also like that similar to other types of resistance bands, there are varying levels of difficulty. Once […]
