45-Minute Total Body Strength Workout for Women

I hurt my ankle a week and a half ago.

I wish I could say I did it while saving a kitten from a burning building, or some other heroic sh*t like that, but nope I did it while hiking.

So, not a total klutz move (like if I injured it crossing a street), but not exactly noble either.

I hurt it good too!

We thought, at first, I had broken my ankle. Loving husband had nightmares of carrying me out, while I had nightmares of not being able to lunge.

I haven’t had pain like that in a long time. You know the kind I’m talking about.

The kind that makes you feel sick to your stomach, while bringing tears to your eyes as you hyperventilate the words “sh*t” and “f*ck” over and over again.

The kicker was we were five kilometres into the hike…. so I had to hike back out.

Needless to say I did not release a workout on Monday cause I couldn’t exercise.

I was not happy about it. Both not exercising and second losing my YouTube mojo. Sorry about that. Sh*t happens, right?

I’m back now though, and I think you are gonna love this workout!

TOOLS NEEDED

A pair of light and moderate dumbbells

How ya doing, my little workout rock star?

I hope you are killing it with your workouts, loving the sweat pouring off of your forehead and smiling cause you are moving your body.

Even if you don’t like the physical act of working out, pretend otherwise and your brain will follow suit.

How we feel can be changed with a simple smile on the face.

Now, I’m not suggesting you grin to a point where people are looking at ya and wondering when you’re gonna blow.

No, instead, smile a bit (especially when doing a task you might not really love), and the brain will get the message, and in return flood your body with those feel good endorphins.

Try it πŸ™‚

I was sitting at an intersection the other day when I glanced at the top of my head in my rearview mirror (I don’t know, to fix my bangs or something probably), when I noticed a grey hair.

WTF? On closer inspection I noticed some more.

Now, I do have a grey hair. Yup. One. It’s by my forehead and I pluck it.

I pluck it in front of all my other hairs too. So they can see what happens if they too decide to be rebellious and go grey.

It’s like a warning, behave or you’re gone baby.

But, they ain’t behaving anymore. In fact, there is a bloody mutiny going on.

And this just happened too. Last month (when I was 47) everything was cool. Now, at 48, everything is not so cool anymore.

What’s girl to do?

Head to the hairdresser I guess. Cause if I keep plucking I might be bald πŸ™‚

30-Minute Bodyweight Strength Workout #3

This workout is another go-to if you are vacation, or if you are somewhere without any dumbbells.

It’s 30-minutes of strength moves, using the bodyweight and speed for intensity.

And… when you are done (and if you have a foam roller), head over to the other workout I released last night: 15-Minute Foam Rolling Workout for the Hips.

I’m just waiting for loving husband to come home so we can have dinner.

Tonight’s meal is salmon, roasted veggies and a spinach salad, and… if he eats his salad tonight this will be 3 nights in a row that he has eaten green veggies!

What??!!

Who is this man, and what the f*ck did he do to my husband?

Hahaha, seriously though.

This is a man who thinks M&M’s are a great snack option (cause they are vegetarian, he claims), and that chocolate cake is perfectly fine as an appetizer.

But, I won’t get too excited just yet. Cause technically we haven’t had dinner yet, so technically he hasn’t eaten his salad yet.

I’ll keep ya posted.

TOOLS NEEDED

A pair of 3 or 5lb dumbbells (FYI: don’t get used to that, next workout we go heavy!)

New Youtube Welcome Video

A couple of weeks ago I hired my favourite videographer, Patrick, to help me with a new YouTube welcome vid.

I wanted something more professionally shoot, and more fun.

So, I came up with the concept of poking a little fun at the fitness industry.

There I was, on a cold Sunday afternoon, dressed in questionable attire on the main street in our little town of Ladner.

It took about 8 takes to get the opening, with a few cars stopping to watch the action, one to tell me to get some clothes on, cause it’s cold out (thanks Mario, duly noted), and a few gathered around on the sidewalk hoping to catch a glimpse of a star.

HAHAHA, joke was on them, wasn’t it?

Take a look and hop over to the YouTube channel and drop a comment.

I would love to hear what you think of it.
