Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the CocoaVia® Live Your Life with Heart campaign. I was compensated for my time. Hey there! I have an awesome quickie workout for you guys. It’s high-intensity and doesn’t require any equipment, so you can do it just about anywhere. All you need is a little bit of space! In case you’re unfamiliar with Tabata workouts, here’s what they’re all about… A standard Tabata circuit is four minutes long and…

Hi, friends! Here’s a what-I-ate/day-in-the-life recap for all of you! You guys said you enjoyed reading these types of posts on CNC, so I’m keeping them alive! Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was two slices of toast with Teddie Peanut Butter and banana slices on top. On the side, I had a container of Greek-style almond milk yogurt, which, like the coconut milk one, was no bueno. The texture just isn’t my jam. Once again, I didn’t…

Hello! Just wanted to share a quickie workout that anyone can do, but the pregnant ladies might especially be interested in! I’m really trying to keep my abs strong throughout my pregnancy, so I’ve been doing this 4-minute plank Tabata a few times a week. Surprisingly, the 20-second holds get pretty tough toward the end! For this workout, hold a plank (on your hands or forearms) for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds….

After lunch yesterday, I got ready to go to the gym. I put on my workout gear and then packed up my gym bag because I planned to take a shower at the gym before my doctor’s appointment. While I was packing, I thought it might be fun to show you guys what’s in my gym bag. Here’s what’s in my gym bag: Lug Life Cartwheel Overnight/Gym Bag: This is the best gym (and overnight)…

Yay! I did it! I achieved my goal for the Paleo Challenge: 12 (consecutive) Kipping Pull-ups!!! Ok, so now that I achieved my goal for the Paleo Challenge, I’m officially cashing it in with the diet part of it. I was never super strict with the diet to begin with (hence, the peanut butter, French fries, cake, and wine), so I was getting super low scores every week and just not really into it. I…

Worst blog title ever? Probably. But, it tells you exactly what this post is about! Ha! This morning, I woke up to the sounds of “ooohs” and “aahhs” coming from the bathroom. (I promise this story is rated PG!) I recently bought a new memory foam mat for our bathroom, so Mal made sure to let me know just how good it felt on his feet when he got out of the shower. Even at…

Oooooh, I have another great treadmill workout for you guys! I did a Tabata workout, which is interval training of 20 seconds of maximum intensity exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated 8 times for a total of four minutes. My total workout time, including warm-up and cool-down, was only 20 minutes, but it kicked my butt! Credit for this simple and powerful training method belongs to its namesake, Dr. Izumi Tabata and a…
