Happy Monday. Happy summer!
And hello July!
Where does time go? Seriously.
Workouts over the weekend:
Saturday- Taught boot camp. Among other things we did the 10 to 1 Jumping Burpee Challenge. That never gets old. He he.
Sunday- Sweated like a pig teaching a 75 minute spin class. First time I’ve taught a 75 minute class. Um, yeah, those extra 15 minutes on the bike are pretty tough.
So, here are some moves to start out the week. Wait, and the month actually.
This first one is one we did in boot camp Saturday and I do it regularly in my classes. A V-sit with alternating leg cross overs.
It’s meant to be slow and controlled. Working your core while getting a little extra inner thigh work at the same time.
Sit in a V using your core to hold you legs up. Hold on to your legs if you need a modification. Alternate crossing legs over one another.
You can see an old video of my sweaty mug doing this move at home with the boys climbing on me here. It helps give more of a visual “how-to”.
And here’s another move of the week by special request from Judah.
I was taping videos outside early Saturday morning and he really wanted to make one and a move of the week. You can thank him for this.
Move of the Week- Plank Jacks
Don’t you all workout in the front yard in pajamas?
I’ve got a lot to really just wrap my head around before the week and month really hit me head on.
I need a plan of action on easing back into running.
I also need a plan of action for what to do now that the STUFT Detox is officially over.
Lots to plan out. If I don’t plan, I’m in trouble. So if things are quite here for a few days, it hopefully means I’m finally getting my act together.
I made a marvelous sweetener free iced mocha this morning. I used some of this Trader Joe’s coconut milk
and combined it with unsweetened almond milk with the other usual perfect summer mocha ingredients (minus the sugar free syrup). It wasn’t too shabby.
Um, and just worth mentioning, this snack is darn delicious.
Baked sweet potato mashed up and topped with pumpkin pie spice, coconut oil and pecan butter.
It’s even better chilled for a bit.
Also, just thought I’d pass along an email I got from my favorite egg whites. Good timing too as I just finished off a huge jug over the weekend.
I love these more over the summer because you can use it in smoothies to up the protein. I’ve been using it in my Egg-cellent Sweetener Free Mocha Smoothie lately. If you happen to get your hands on some jugs, I think you should try it in smoothies.

I was reading a little Health Magazine over the weekend and saw this.
What a great quote, right? That’s going to be my motto for the month.
And I thought this was interesting too.
Are you breaking a bad habit or starting a new healthy one today?
It’s the perfect day to do so since it’s Monday and the start of a new month, yes?
I have to get my goals on paper.
Writing them down is key, don’t you think?
Have a good one!
