This is one of the quickest weekday meals ever! I usually have it all on hand already.
Basically it’s a spring roll in a bowl.
Sauté ground meat, I used chicken for this one. When it’s cooked add a bag of pre mixed cabbage, some garlic powder, ground ginger, light Low sodium soya sauce (you don’t need much), and cook until cabbage softens. Top with Saracha, green onions and sesame seeds!! ENJOY!
Yes I did!! This is the challenge everyone needs to kick start 2023 and all you need is 10 minutes. I call this Challenge HIIT10.
My BFF is joining me on camera as the two of us sweat it out with you during the 10 minute body weight workout. Audrey, my BFF, is doing full modified and beginner movements while I'm doing the advanced movements. Just like so many people, she’s starting back up after a long break.
These 10 minute modified workouts meet her where she is but give her the gratification of doing something positive and energizing. After our most recent workout she turned to me and said:
“I love how do able this is and how accomplished I feel when I’m done. Best of all it’s only 10 minutes. Why didn’t you do this sooner!?!?”
Nothing like a friend to cut to the chase. Why am I introducing this now? Because we all need a quick pick me up. This challenge doesn’t require any equipment or a large space. You just need your beautiful self and 10 minutes. There are no complicated movements. You experience an endorphin rush and energy that carries you through your day - every single workout.
HIIT10 is available starting January 2nd
This holiday season I want to wish you time with the people you love, time to be fully present and let the small moments soak in. We need to relish the small moments in life. The way our child looks up at us and in that moment your heart swells twice it's size. The joy of being outside and embracing the quiet of the moment. Seeing the sun turn everything golden. Or hearing a friends voice you haven't spoken to in a long time.
As we bring 2022 to a close I hope you take a moment to see no matter what obstacles you may have faced, there was also many - if not millions, of small moments of joy. We can fix to heavily on negative thoughts, negative moments and push aside all the small moments of joy, happiness and peace we also experience. When we look for it, we discover we are surrounded by these micro moments.
Each year I share my Christmas Eve tradition of taking a moment to enjoy the beauty of what this season is about. I go for a run after dinner through town. I enjoy the silence of a cold winter's night where there are no cars on the road because everyone is celebrating. The crunch of my feet on the snow. The crystals of my breath in the air. I run past the houses lit with lights and windows glowing as people sit around their tables or trees. Yes, I feel like one of Charles Dickens' ghosts because I am counting my blessings while filling my cup so I can enjoy the people I love.
May you find the small moments of joy this holiday season,

This month's Movement and Mindset Magazine shares gift ideas for the health lover, how to battle negative thoughts, a free workshop, how to boost your immune system, recipes and why women need to lift weights.
The first week of LIFT MAX is available to HIIT Play tomorrow morning. This series is for everyone who prefers strength training to more cardio based workouts or is looking to increase their strength to get more out of theur other workouts.
You can use weights or resistance bands. You need the long loop bands, mini bands and fabric resistance bands.
For weights you need a wide range of dumbbells. I also use plates and barbells, and kettle bells but you can adapt with dumbbells.
Looking forward to the feedback on this series.

Sure, I'm almost a month late to join in the gold star challenge... but here I go with Day 1 :) I surprised myself by doing a level up HIIT box with weights and with feeling strong throughout (especially after not using weights much while I was recuperating from an injury). So, I wasn't able to hold the 4-minute wall sit, but that doesn't stop me from celebrating my accomplishments. Overall, today's workout felt amazing!! I've been struggling with motivation the last few months but here I am... committed and motivated to get this tracking form full of gold stars & getting back into the habit of HIITing play daily :)
