3 Go-To Tabata Workouts

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Since I joined Tread Fitness earlier this year, high-intensity interval training has become my favorite type of workout. I still love my yoga practice for rest days, but there is something about just kicking your own ass and feeling that sweat drip down the sides of your face that is so satisfying to me. Enter one of my favorite types of HIIT workouts, Tabata (aka “The 4-Minute Miracle). To start, the basic formula for Tabata...

Diaphragmatic Breathing Exercise

In need of a quick way to calm down/cool off? Not sure why that is in question form because I am pretty sure EVERYONE could use something like this! In today’s post, I am going to be sharing a quick breathing exercise using diaphragmatic breathing. I am ashamed to admit this, but I had never heard of diaphragmatic breathing until my mid-twenties. Shame on me. Photo Cred: Melissa Fay Photography, Top, Bottoms This crop top and leggings set from Outdoor...

Meatballs and Cauli Mash

Happy Thursday, my friends! I am always looking for dishes that I can cook early in the week and eat for lunch the rest of the week. For some reason lunch is SO HARD for me; I’ll save that topic for another day. (If you have lunch tips, send my way, help!) This meatballs and cauli mash recipe is a bulls-eye when it comes to making a meal in bulk and eating it all week. Personally, I like to cook...

Anywhere Ab Exercises

Hi! First of all, remember me?! I promise I am going to become more consistent with posting. Bear with me people; I’m still trying to figure out this whole blog life thing!

The Healthy Girl’s Comfort Food – Simple Hash Bowl

To be honest this hash bowl isn’t the prettiest recipe to photograph, but it’s delicious and a weekday go-to, so I had to share it with y’all. Who says comfort food should be packed with a ton of calories and fat?! This recipe is a weekly staple at our house. Chris would actually eat it every night (with no complaints) if I cooked it. When I did Whole 30, hash bowls became my obsession; you seriously CANNOT mess them up. They...

5 Easy Ways to Practice Self-Care

It’s not breaking news that we live in an overstimulating world. As women, it comes natural to care for others and our maternal instincts kick in daily. However, self-care makes up an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and taking the time to check in with your body isn’t a bad thing; it should be a major priority! I’ve always been a busy body. Growing up I was always going to a practice of some sort: softball, basketball, competitive cheerleading,...

Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Last weekend was our first weekend in the house with NO PLANS! I repeat, NO PLANS! That really doesn’t happen too often, so we soaked it in alllll weekend long with a lot of much needed sleep (Chris literally slept the entire weekend per my Instastory), lounging, cleaning, organizing and meal prepping! Lately we have been so busy that meal prep has not even been an option, but we are finally getting settled and into our new routine. Sunday is by...

5 Tips on How to Unplug from Technology

Technology has definitely enhanced our lives in multiple ways. And, I am a HUGE fan, however, sometimes it’s good to just reset and unplug for a day or even just a few hours. Living in the present moment is something I am continuously focusing on every day, but it can get difficult to achieve when I am constantly looking at my computer or phone screen. At the end of the day, life is happening right in front of you, but...
