On Sunday I finished my latest workout program, 9 Week Control Freak. This was probably the hardest workout program that I’ve done since starting Beachbody. So many burpees. So many renegade rows. So much tabata cardio. My favorite workout of the week was tabata cardio. I loved doing the short bursts of cardio moves, followed… Continue reading 9 Week Control Freak Review

Wow, it’s the last day of January 2021, guys! Here in Iowa, we are once again dealing with more snow. It’s been a really snowy winter.

Good morning! Does anyone else’s dogs get them up at the crack of dawn? I feel like a mother of young children again. I can’t even remember the last time I got to sleep in.
