20-Minute Total Body Workout with 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 🙂

This booty HIIT workout was fun to record.

It has the just the right amount of cardio and strength drills, without feeling like it’s gonna kill you.

You can get this workout done at home, at work (hello lunch hour workout), or while on vacation cause there are no tools required… just you, me and some WiFi.

Easiest Recipe in the World


Serves: 4-6


Ingredients Directions

1/2 large onion

4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 large can of black beans, drained & rinsed

1 cup frozen corn

1 cup of your favourite salsa

1-1/2 tsp cumin

1/4 paprika

small corn or whole grain tortillas

1. Use a 4 to 5 quart slow cooker.

2. Slice the onion thinly in half moons.

3. Put the sliced onion in the bottom of the crockpot.

4. Place the chicken thighs on top & rub the salt and pepper on them.

5. Layer the beans, corn and salsa on top.

6. Sprinkle the cumin and paprika across the top.

7. Cover slow cooker and cook low for 4-5 hours, until chicken shreds easily with a fork.

8. Heat the tortilla shells and serve.

You can also add some toppings too. I love avocado, lettuce and extra salsa on top.

This freezes amazing too!

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!


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.


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

25-Minute Bodyweight Strength and Ab Workout

A 25-minute total body workout, using no equipment, with emphasis on the abs!

Guess what?

Loving husband is back!

He has agreed to film workouts with me again, with the promise that he gets to do all the easy and modified moves.

So, I said of course and then conveniently forgot about my promise and made him do three rounds of burpees in this workout.

Oops. My bad.

Your burpee looks like crap

We have a special burpee and squat drill at the end and loving husband’s burpees were SO BAD all I could do was laugh.

And I did.

I laughed so hard I could barely do them (at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).

If anything, you have to tune into his version of the burpee – it’s at the 22:00 minute mark – and then watch it from there.

It should be a smile on those lips of yours.
