Good morning! Happy Tuesday. Let’s get moving.


This morning I did a 10 minute warm-up of jumping jacks, high knees, and jogging in place. Then completed this Lean Legs workout I created, it should take 15 minutes. I used 10lb weights for the workout and my timer on my Iphone. Alternating the static movement and jump training will increase your metabolism and burn fat. Always remember proper form with lunges and squats- keep your knees aligned with your ankle.

I followed this up with a 10 minute HIIT (Hight Intensity Interval Training) workout- 30 seconds all out, 30 seconds slow pace- running stairs. You can do this 10 minute workout with any form of cardio (running, elliptical, etc) and you will feel the burn! Make sure to cool down for 10-15 minutes with some stretching, especially those legs!


I woke up before Darin left for work to make Whole Wheat Pancakes. I have tried different recipes and have altered them into what I like. This is a great breakfast to fuel you for your day and keep you full until lunch! Enjoy.

What you will need:

– (1) cup of Whole Wheat Flour

Tuesday Thoughts: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” -Virginia Woolf

What do you think about this quote? I find that when I eat junk food, I feel like junk and not as full of life as I do when I feed my body fresh and healthy food.
