I am sharing my knowledge here on this blog in order to help you reach your goals. Fitness should be fun, eating healthy should taste good, and feeling your absolute best is the ultimate goal.

  1. Love this challenge. I mention it in my post that went up today about Healthy for the Holiday!

    1. Did you really??! That’s awesome thank you so much! Would love your participation with check ins 😀

  2. I know I could probably all of these exercises, but I’d be too afraid of falling and hitting my face on the medicine ball.

    1. Aww I promise you won’t!! You can always omit the ball all together and just use your body weight to start out 🙂

  3. Love the how to and workout idea! I will find you on IG too! I don’t have a medicine ball but love that you suggested free weights, cause i do have those!

    1. Yes feel free to use free weights and modify as needed! You can just do the push ups on the ground :). Find me yay!! Can’t wait to see your check ins 😀

    1. Yay!!! Don’t forget to check in on social Ariel 🙂

  4. Can’t wait to do this once I’m off work!

    1. Get it Chica! What a perfect way to decompress after work xo
