Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 3

DAY 3: WEDNESDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program             (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I was so happy to get in my 2nd day of the program workout at the gym!! Nate even joined me for this one and we added on a fourth set to really bring the heat to this upper body day! I found myself alternating between goals for myself on each set to do either 20 reps faster (trying to do it in 20 seconds), or 10 reps slower like the program says with a 10 second rest in between. This is a variation of Tabatas (why we did four sets instead of three) to make a 1/2 Tabata sequence. Many people who have been coached in Fitness plans by me are very familiar with this lifting strategy. It’s a strategic way to take the...

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 2

DAY 2: TUESDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I didn’t get a chance to hit a workout, so counted my three hours of teaching dance as my workout. To be honest, while many people say ‘that counts as a workout,’ it’s a totally different feeling than TRAINING your body. Sure, I burned some energy, but my body ached at the end of the day. Due to my scoliosis, I don’t enjoy days like that where focused training time whether at the gym, in yoga, or home in bodyweight movements doesn’t happen. Eating Obstacles: It was a long hard afternoon and I had an hour in between appointments while on the road, so did as I always do: find a Starbucks to get some work done. I should have ordered an herbal mint tea (my typical go-to), but as...

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 1

DAY 1: MONDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I got to the gym around 3:45 and would prefer not to train this time of day again. I enjoy dancing this late in the day, but not training my muscles or doing sprints. Nonetheless, I made it. My total workout time was about 50 minutes since I took a bit longer stretch time than the 7-minute Stretch on the program. I added the Bosu Ball into my forward lunges and added multiple angles. My 3rd set turned into jumping squats up and over the Bosu ball which gave me a great quad burnout–the type where you need to sit down afterward so your legs don’t give out 🙂 On the 10-minute sprints, I wanted to be done at Minute 4. But I thought of everyone else doing this...

The Top 12 Fast-Grab Foods for the Power Foods Lifestyle

Wouldn’t it be nice if I could teach you how to lose weight, improve digestion, and boost your metabolism without meal prepping? I can, and I will! You see, my life has been pretty hectic over the past few years. Not only have I moved to different cities almost every year for the past 6 years (hashtag #life + emoji palm-to-forehead), but I have kept my own lifestyle change going no matter what the circumstances. From teaching dance masterclasses and judging dance competitions, to traveling to speaking engagements, a long-distance relationship (that is now not long-distance–happy dance!) and house-sitting for family members overseas, my personal life has been a LOT to juggle. All on top of running Body Buddies as the online empire it has become. True Confessions: I’m not always my best.  It has been a tremendous learning curve of making the #PowerFoodsLifestyle happen 70%+ of the time, even without food...
