Nothin’ But Sweat

Heeeeeeelllllllllloooooooo! Welcome to wonderful Friday! I honestly didn’t know if Friday was going to make it to us this week. But it did. So happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, this post was accidentally posted yesterday (yeah, that was my fault). So some of you already took a peak, some didn’t. Either way, it’s short and sweet and ready for Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!


I have been seriously, seriously busy lately. I almost feel like a chicken running around with my head cut off (nice euphemism, huh?), except I’m feeling grounded and sane at the same time.

I am one of those Do-Too-Mucher’s (which we’ll talk about in a later post…) who tries to take on the world and say yes and yes and then more yes’s before finally collapsing in a pile of stress. But for the last few weeks of me doing-too-much, I’m feeling ok with it all.

I’m blogging my heart out and trying to come up with creative recipes, while personal training in the mornings before work, working a full day, then cooking and baking and making time for ME.

Somehow I’m finding it all quite doable. And somehow I’m happy and satisfied with it all. ๐Ÿ™‚

One way to kill two birds with one stone (geez, those idioms are violent!) is to exercise. This is where I find ME time and burn calories and de-stress. (ok, that was really three birds but whatever)

And when you do do a lot, like me, you want your workouts short but insanely effective… like some of the fun exercises I’ve been doing lately.


Nothin’ But Sweat Workout

  • walking lunges holding a 25# or 45# plate overhead (engage those core muscles!) -25 out/25 back
  • jump rope (50 single passes or 25 double unders)
  • Bosu jumping side lunge (one foot on bosu at a time, lunging to the side then jump to the other side, switching feet) -25
  • Bosu push-ups (flip the Bosu so the flat part is facing up) -10 to 15
  • Bosu mountain climbers (no rest- do right after finishing your push-ups) -25
  • Repeat this lovely sweaty circuit two more times

You can thank me when you’re done… sweating. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now get going with it! Let me know what you think. Don’t you wish you were my training client? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finished with the workout and need a snack? I’m thinking Lindsay‘s Joy Bites will do the trick.

Or a doctor‘s Sunflower Butter Ice Cream (hello!).

Maybe some Katified Blackies…?

Make all of those, and some Buffalo Bean Dip, because that just sounds amazing.
