Tread Tabata Thursday!

Hello Spring!
Well it’s not -20, and it’s not snowing, so that’s Spring in Boston for me. And today after teaching I didn’t even need pants ( although it looks like I am short-less as well, I have short on I promise).

Also in case you need a little reminder to get you through today and Friday before the weekend… Attitude is EVERYTHING

Rebook Fitness has a new line out called Rally and this tank top is part of it. This one is the Own Spark 2.0 Tank Top.
If you have not checked out the Women’s Stuff on Rebook, I would highly suggest it, they have some great, fun, and functional stuff! This tank top has a fun color, fun back, and is super functional from Box Jumps, Push Up’s and Treadmill Miles.

Also a fun Thursday tip if you live in Boston and are looking for a fun girls night, date night, or just love s’mores…check out Aragosta Bar and Bistro. The fire pits are open all winter, and they give you blankets so you stay warm, and they have heat lamps, in the summer it’s on the water and just stunning! We went last night, and had a blast! The food from flat-breads to salad’s to soups is amazing! It started to rain, so the waiter made our s’mores for us, but they were still amazing ( we moved inside to eat when the rain came).

Do you like s’mores?
Are you ready for running in shorts?
What is a fun weekend plan you have?
What’s your favorite Cardio exercise?

Any good books your reading? I just started the Portrait of my Father and really like the story line of the family.

Back to reality!

Holy snow, and more snow, and more snow! It was a real “welcome back to reality” to shovel and shovel and more shoveling after being on the beach all weekend!

At least the city does look beautiful!
We were in Florida this past weekend for a dear friends Bachelorette and oh boy oh boy was it fun! Luckily the W hotel we stayed at offered some really amazing complimentary beach glasses, so we got to be a little “healthy” while having fun in the sun!

I took yoga one day, went on a long run one day and did beach bootcamp anger morning. Bootcamp on the beach was so hard, you really needed to work on your balance, and running in the sand is not joke! We spend most of the days with a cocktail in hand by the pool. Life is good!

The group of girls was such fun, the sun came out, and the cocktails were beyond yummy! Maybe too yummy as I felt like I had a 2 day hangover come Monday, but we only live once, and need to enjoy every once in awhile right. Monday was spend at the gym getting back on track, green smoothie drinking, and shoveling!

Reality and routine are nice but I am over shoveling! If your stuck inside today here are a few fun plank moves you can do to get a full body workout!
1. Plank hold
2. Plank mountian climbers
3. Plank pulses
4. Plank grasshoppers
5. Side plank hold right side
6. Plank supermans
7. Side plank hold left side
8. Plank with shoulder taps ( hold plank tap opposite hand to opposite shoulder).
9. Plank alternating leg lifts
10. Plank hold.
Do each for 25 seconds take as much needed rest between, repeat the cycle as many times as you want.
Bonus finish with 10 push ups…but! Lower down on the push up to the count of 3 and push up to the count of 4! It’s a killer! I love refueling wit CorePower, and in all this snow I always have a cold one on hand!

I know I post on my recovery and the importance of it but so is diet and protein! I am not a huge eggs fan but I am trying in 2015! I have made a compromise with egg whites, and using a thick veggie like broccoli! Perfect little recovery start to my Tuesday, new magazine, healthy breakfast and a coffee…always need my coffee! Today was a work from home day as the MBTA is closed, but I was out shoveling at 5 in the gym by 5:30 and teaching at 6:30….busy day and I need to fuel it right!
