I love being able to work from home. I can grab coffee and lunch quickly. I can watch TV in the middle of the day if I want. I can enjoy my dogs beside me as I blast techno music.
Today, as I clicked away on the keyboard for hourssss, my firstborn was in the home office with me and, to be honest, I needed some space. I said, "Hey, why don't you go downstairs and workout in the basement?" We have a giant mirror and tons of weights and such.

Last week on vacation, I enjoyed exercising outdoors while each kid enjoyed hammock time. My oldest played Bob Marley on the giant speaker while I did squats, leg lifts, and calf raises. I just needed a timer and shoes. That's it. Outdoor workouts are awesome because we get fresh air and the breeze helps dry our sweat. While my timer is counting down the seconds to the finish line (my favorite part of any workout is the end, ha), I make sure to rest throughout.

As we were lacing up our shoes and mixing up BCAA's, some of the kids were swarming around and I casually said, "If any of y'all want to come workout, you can!" P
Let's be honest. Aren't there some workout moves that have become a little ho-hum lately? Maybe you're wondering how to spice up a plank or make lunges more challenging. Don't we want to get the most out of a workout AND enjoy it too? Here are 6 tricks to intensifying your next workout! 1. SNAIL. Let's take push-ups for example. Instead of repping them out one after another, I want you to slow down. It should take 2 breaths to get to the bottom of that push-up, and 2 b
Ready to workout with me? Originally filmed as a Facebook Live in my Fit With Deb Girls group, I decided to share this with you! Make sure you lift HEAVY enough weights...it's what make the workout move from "yeah it was kind of good" to "oh my word that was really challenging and I am sweating everywhere!" I followed the workout (which, by the way, includes warm-up and cool-down) with a yummy cherry protein smoothie to really get those muscles built! Here ya go, friend! 20
