This is my current favorite upper body set. Tank top season is upon us, but to be honest that means nothing to me. I like to work towards building strength and lean muscle year round. I love working out my shoulders, since it's one of my favorite features (aside from my quads). This upper body … Continue reading Upper Body Strength [Shoulders + Triceps]
A few weeks ago it seemed as if the "stay at home" order in my state was going to be extended. But then all of a sudden, New Hampshire was [pretty much] going to reopen on June 15th. That's just how it's been; things can turn a complete 180 the next week or even the … Continue reading NH Reopens.
I've been trying to get more consistent with workouts yet again. As you may be able to tell, I redid my workout space for a fresh feel. I fell off waking up before the kiddos. I can be really good on workouts for a week or two at a consistent time, but others I find myself … Continue reading 10 Minute Bodyweight HIIT

In this workout I use 10lbs dumbbells, but use … Continue reading Glute Activation + Lower Body Workout

We got a new table and chair set after a couple of chairs had broken from our kitchen set. It was from Pat's grandmother and I believe it was almost 50 years old. It's definitely served it's purpose. During quarantine, the kitchen table had become the hot spot for a million activities, including homeschooling.It was … Continue reading New Addition.
The weather here in New England is going to be perfect; low 70s, sunny and well perfect. For me anyways. 😉 Today I'm bringing to you a workout I shared as a bonus to my class members this week. If the weather is nice where you are, definitely take it outside. I've switched up the timer … Continue reading 24 Minute Total Body HIIT.
I have to admit while I was finding my groove before with being at home, for some reason I have fallen off this weekend [and the past few days]. I just haven't had the motivation at night to work on my [entire] night routine. Instead, I've been focusing on making to-do lists first thing in … Continue reading Weekend Recap.
