Jump Around!!!

12 Oct

Well it has been a week or so since I have written something.. shame on me! But I have been busy. At work, I have had conferences out the behind, grades, and the arrival of new materials (FUN!). At home, I have been trying and trying to get our house to my liking- which is SPOTLESS. I feel like I have no excuse to have a messy house because I only work till 11 each day… however, it is much harder than it may seem.

We continue on our path to clean eating- it is harder than it looks. For so long I opted for the quick and healthy approach. Eating clean is much more time consuming but the benefits are totally worth it! I’ve been relying on my Tosca Reno cookbook and cleaneatingmag.com as well as some new creations. 🙂 Once I purchase a new camera I will get some pics and recipes up to share.

I have come up with some more heart pumpin’ Tabata workouts. I will tell you all that I have seen amazing success with these. My body truly is changing and I can feel a difference in my energy level.


Jumping alternate lunges-20 seconds

Burpees- 20 seconds
