Workout Wednesday…Gobble Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!!!! I can not wait until tomorrow.  I have been singing “I’m all about the sides. ‘bout the sides, no Turkey”. Am I the only one who looks forward to alllll the sides instead of the Turkey? My mouth is watering up, just thinking about it.

Before I even begin this post…I want to thank everyone who has reached out to me in regards to Monday’s MMR post! Thank you for all the support.

So with the holidays coming, sometimes it is hard to squeeze in a workout but if you give me 20 minutes…I will kick your bum.

Grab your kettlebell and set the timer on your phone for 20 minutes and lets get moving.

20 MINUTE AMRAP

1. RUSSIAN SWINGS 10 REPS

2. GOBLET 10 REPS

3. THRUSTER 10 REPS

4. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS 20 REPS

5. PLANK SHOULDER TAP 10 REPS

6. RUSSIAN TWIST 10 REPS

Make sure you get a kick ass workout tomorrow morning before you start all your festivities. I watched a segment on the Today show and a family of 10 consumed almost 25,000 calories, GASP! Let’s workout so we can put a dent in those extra calories but remember to enjoy every single bite without any regret!

Have an awesome day and I am thankful for you guys!

Namaste…

Monday Morning Rambles; I Have a Confession…

I am so hesitant to post this because I know that my clients will most likely see this and I am terrified they will think that I am fraud. Even though I am hesitant, I need to do this for my own sanity.

I am a binger. I have managed to keep it under control but lately the episodes have been more frequent. I’ve been making choices that have not been the best. I have finally come to the conclusion that I DO have an eating disorder and just like a recovering alcoholic wouldn’t keep liquor in their homes; I shouldn’t keep trigger foods in my apartment.

So why am I sharing this with you? Because I don’t want people to think they are alone. I want to remind people that  behind every instagram photo or facebook post, someone is fighting their own personal struggle.

I decided to download an app to help me stay focused (since I am all about keeping a streak going)…and praying that my OCD will overpower my ED.

quit that

I speak much more about it in the vlog…
