Hope you had a great Easter!

Since loving husband is not eating processed sugar I made him healthy chocolate cookies as our Easter treat.

They were really good too!

Whereas with typical cookies I can eat until my stomach bursts, these healthier ones I was full after two.

WOW! Seriously, that never happens with me and cookies.

Bodyweight Beginner Tabata

Bodyweight Beginner Tabata

Tabatas are a great way to get your fitness level up AND your fitness in when you’re tight on time.

You see the whole idea around a Tabata workout is you increase the intensity to decrease the exercise time.

The end result = a fitter you 🙂

This particular Tabata workout is perfect for beginners.

It uses bodyweight only, making it also the perfect to do anywhere and anytime.

#BOOM. Awesome sauce, eh?!

Oh, and I have also included a new fave recipe that I’m crushing on – Sweet Potato Pizzas.

It’s vegetarian making it the perfect meal for a future Meatless Monday (carnivore Loving Husband’s least favourite day of the week).

Sweet Potato Pizzas

Where you use the sweet potato as the crust!

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

This workout I’m solo.

No loving husband. No funny banter back and forth.

Being solo was my choice, too. And a purely selfish choice at that.

You see I did not want to listen to 40-minutes of moaning and groaning. I love the man, but for for the love of Pete can he complain.

He also WAS OVER THE MOON that I filmed without.

So, it was a win-win for everyone.

  • Tabata workouts
  • Spin classes
  • Burpees 🙂

Guess who’s back?

Loving husband blessed us with his comedic self for this workout. And boy was he in top form.

In addition to his usual complaining about how hard the workout is he also:

Made a plea with those watching to NOT subscribe to the YouTube channel, cause if there’s no one watching he won’t have to come and film.

Decided to see how far he could push his bad form with each exercise, while I wasn’t looking. Well played LH, I did not notice the shenanigans until I was editing the film.

Stared lovingly past the camera, through the front window, to the bakery across the street. They make his favourite donuts.

Forgot the three things I asked him to remember before started filming.

The end result – a pretty funny, yet still sweaty and awesome, workout.

 

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy and light dumbbells

Workout best for: home or gym

Level: beginner – advanced

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT

Today’s workout is the PERFECT workout to do if you are:

  • Travelling and have no access to equipment
  • In need of a cardio workout
  • Looking to strengthen the legs (especially the glutes)
  • Wanting a good core workout
  • Feeling down and need a smile on your face

This workout only uses your bodyweight and is suitable for all levels.

It is also loving husband’s first harder workout with me and I wish I had a dollar for every time he moaned, groaned or rolled his eyes at me – cause after this 35-minute workout I would have had enough cash for a visit to the ol’ spa.

Loving Husband

I won’t lie. This workout almost killed loving husband. But, it’s not because it’s a super hard core workout.

It’s really because he just has not been working on his cardio lately and he is getting over a really bad cold that lasted for almost two months!

So, nonetheless, two-minutes into the warm up he was already huffing and puffing.

However, he was a great sport and he did his very best (albeit sometimes the wrong exercise at the wrong time). And that’s all a wife and a trainer can ask for.
