Hello everyone! I want to wish you a wonderful week and an even better (US) holiday ahead.  Remember to enjoy some down time with those you love and simply savor the holiday.  Of course I want you to squeeze in a workout at some point, but most importantly, take some time to unplug, relax and appreciate all the good stuff.

Last but not least, I’ve picked a winner for my 4th of July Sweaty Bands Giveaway.  Congrats Christine!  Huge shout out to you for prioritizing exercise while studying for the MCAT – phew!  I hope you make time to sleep.  In case you guys missed Christine’s workout plans, here’s what she has in store…

“This summer, I’ve been spending a lot of time studying for my mcat this coming august. Exercise had been a huge stress relief of mine, and I’ve recently gotten into running! I hope to accomplish a 5k by the end of this summer, so this 4th of July weekend will consist of running along the bayou–my goal is to do a 2.5 mile stretch in one go. I also plan on doing a bit of cross training by getting some laps in at the pool and balancing out my cardio by doing a few Pilates routines. During my study breaks, I want to try your 20 min cardio workout!” – Christine

Also, SURPRISE, I actually got an extra Sweaty Band so I picked a 2nd winner.  Congrats Tory!  You stole my heart when you mentioned Tae Bo.  I always have been and always will be a Billy Blanks fan.  Here are Tory’s workout plans for the weekend…

“I’m planning on working out indoors, because of the heat and humidity that’s forecasted for this week. Over this past weekend I brushed the dust off my old Billy Blanks Tae Bo DVDs.  They are fun and provide me with a great workout. Now that I’ve seen your ’20 Minute Cardio Workout’, planning on alternating this workout with the 30 minute, Tae Bo workouts.  For fun outdoors workouts, it’s all about the water workouts! I’m planning having some playtime with my kids to cool off and get in some laps in the pool.” – Tory

Thanks to everyone who shared their weekend workout plans.  Knowing that others will be up and active always encourages me to get moving. Have a happy 4th of July and remember show your #GRIT.  Lots of luv, Brit

  1. TAE BO!! I remember boxing along to those with my mom as a kid. If only our VCR still worked and wasn’t a billion years old I could hang out with my main man Billy again VHS-style. Oh well. I guess grainy YouTube videos will have to do!

    Love your blog! Keep up the great work!
