HallowLEAN workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning! Thank you SO MUCH for all of your wonderful comments and excitement about the new ebook. It was so amazing to hear some of you say you enjoyed a new recipe for dinner last night. <3 We wanted to make this as valuable as possible, but also super affordable, so grab yours here for the $9.99 intro price.

I feel extra excited for Halloween this year. This time last year, I was certainly excited for our due date and to FINALLY meet P, but was feeling pretty uncomfortable.

Blast from the past:

Pumpkin and belly

Halloween itself was a bit of a blur, but it was a pretty special one since P was home with us and the entire family was together. I love looking back and reading this post, and am excited to plan out the girls’ Halloween costumes. We’ll be heading to Betsy’s for the usual Halloween festivities, and my madre, Trevor (my brother) and his girlfriend will be in town. I can’t wait.

For today, I have a festive Halloween-inspired workout for ya. The only spooky thing about it is how much you’ll be sweating when it’s over. 😉 This is a combo of strength and cardio, so the cardio blasts can increase total calorie-burning potential and keep your heart rate elevated during the muscle-building strength. This is my favorite way to work out. Circuit workouts fly by, and I’m sweaty and triumphant when it’s over.

Please let me know if you give it a try!!

Total body partner workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re enjoying the morning so far. <3 So, the Pilot and I have never really worked out together. Do we work out at the same time? All the time. But we tend to walk into the gym, drop the kiddos off at Kids Club, and venture our separate ways. I’ll usually do […]

Back in the game with Old Navy

This summer, I am back in the game. It feels like I really had a year and a half off limitations, since I was pregnant (and was advised to ditch the impact workouts to resolve a pregnancy-related complication) and my surgeries following the birth. I was able to implement bits and pieces of my *normal* […]
