Hello and Happy Tuesday!
I tried something a little different for my workout yesterday, and it went so well that I have to share it with you guys.
Moves to tone the unforgiving bikini revealing areas that I can do absolutely anywhere? I’m in!
With my best furry workout buddy by my side, I completed the following circuit right in our front yard.
I absolutely love finding new workouts that incorporate different and new-to-me versions of some of my go-to moves. You can find out more details about each of those exercises if some of them are new to you too.
My new favorite is definitely the superwoman push-up!
I completed the series of circuits within thirty minutes and took Roadie inside for a minute to cool down. This is when I started stalking Pinterest for more workouts similar to this one.

I plan to turn to all of them while we are traveling later this week!
After we both hydrated and I changed my shoes, I took Roadie back outside for a quick jog around the neighborhood. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately! Freaking hot… but still gorgeous.
And on a side note, since surviving the last Antarctic freeze that took over Michigan this past winter, you won’t ever hear me complain about it being “too hot” again. Take it from me… sweating is a privilege, ya’ll.
Three miles later, we made our final loop home and I could tell Roadie was done. I included a lot of walking breaks into the last mile, since he’s not quite used to the heat yet. Poor little fella… or dinosaur, whatever.
That one went under the #manyfacesofroadie file for sure!
As soon as we got cleaned up, I went straight for the blender for some refuel and refreshment.
In my smoothie:
1 scoop vanilla Designer Whey sustained energy whey protein powder
1 cup Strawberry Banana Greek yogurt
One of the best post-workout, post-smoothie snack plates to date quickly followed.
Sliced cucumbers, mini peppers, hummus, and 1 1/2 hard-boiled eggs.
I have a feeling you’ll see a lot of these in the future!

Questions of the Day
• What is your favorite type of at-home or travel workout?
• Do you ever get embarrassed of neighbors seeing you workout outside?
Ha. I’m pretty sure my neighbors think I’m crazy. Especially when I play my music through a portable speaker and get all into it. I don’t play it too loud, though because I do get a bit embarrassed.
Why don’t I ever see other people workout out in their front or back yards?
