5 Rounds. 30 minutes
Burn Muscles. Blast Calories
I am finally finding the time to take a short break from packing and sit down with my morning coffee.
A peaceful Sunday morning coffee is essential. There is no rushing it.
Matt and I have to be out of our apartment by Wednesday, and it’s been a battle against time to get our house move in ready. But we’re getting there!
Picking paint is almost impossible. So many choices!
Luckily I am very happy with the colors that I’ve chosen. (chocolate mousses, hillsborough beige, and dusty road). All by Benjamin Moore.
Grab and Go meals have been a lifesaver…
Literally grab a piece of chicken, and go. (seasoned with no salt Mediterranean blend) You gotta do what ya gotta do.
Quick source of energy, straight from the jar
To fuel my Quick and Dirty Workouts that work the entire body in 30 minutes.
Because you CAN find the time!
And even when life becomes hectic, it is a priority to show up to my Spin classes with enthusiasm and a “ready to kick your butt” attitude. And nothing helps that momentum better than music.
OK, my coffee is done and now it’s back to packing!

What is Tabata Trek you ask?
It is an intense, total body workout, that involves a spin bike, a set of weights, and a “ready to work” mind set.
As a Mad Dogg certified Spinning Instructor, I have been taught to never perform any type of activity on a spin bike that you wouldn’t do on a regular outdoor cycle. This includes the use of weights.
A Tabata Trek class involves the following:
Here is an example of how I run my class
Make sure to re-hydrate with at least 40 ounces of water post workout, and refuel those muscles with a combination of Complex Carbs and Protein.
Some of my favorites include:
Oats with cinnamon, spinach and egg whites
oats with blueberries , cinnamon and Greek yogurt
Collard Green Wraps with Chicken, brown rice, peppers and onions.
water with mint and fresh lime
cranberry lime seltzer with frozen berries
What new workouts have you done lately?
Woo! That was a tough one.
Make sure to stretch, hydrate, and refuel your body after each workout.
Now lets eat.
Salad with Kale, raw veggies, chopped almonds, and baked rosemary chicken
Green smoothies with coconut oil and blueberry Protein pancakes
Lemon water and Dark chocolate Coconut Water (my current fave)
And colorful workout attire to add some brightness to my day.
Plank Jack Crossovers: In plank position, Jack your legs out to the side. Bring legs back to starting point, then bring your knee to opposite elbow. Repeat on the other side. That’s 1 rep
Plank Shoulder Taps: In plank position, alternate tapping your shoulder with the opposite hand.
Total Body Crunch: Crunch your knees towards your chest, as if curling into a ball. Do not pull on your neck.
