My New Favorite Arm Workout!!

I wanted to share this awesome arm workout I just found and started! So far I’m loving it and really recommend it!

Its from Chrissa Physical Kitchness. If you haven’t checked out her blog than you need to NOW! There is a killer Pomegranate Brussels Sprouts Salad with Paleo Poppyseed Dressing recipe that I cannot wait to try!

 

For this workout I like to use 15lbs dumbbells and do 25 reps for each workout then do one or two more sets! The beauty of weights is that you can use heavy weights or heck cans out of your pantry! If you are a beginner start with maybe 8-10 reps and lighter weights. ALL images are ©Physical Kitchness

Preach to Yourself by Hayley Morgan

bpy3

When Preach to Yourself: When Your Inner Critic Comes Calling, Talk Back with Truth by Hayley Morgan arrived I was so excited! I absolutely love her!

bpy1Preach to Yourself is written in a way that makes you feel like you are just sitting and chatting with your bestie! I cannot tell you how many times I laughed out loud and thought “oh my gosh me too!” I love Hayley’s writing style so much, she writes with so much encouragement along with truth, vulnerability and a refreshing amount of honesty!

Over the years I have heard so many say “oh _____ book totally impacted my life” honestly I rarely felt the same way until now. Literally from the first chapter I was changing the way I live. bpy2Within the pages of this book Hayley shares her real life experiences with humility, making it extremely easy for you to identify with her and feel comfortable! In addition there is bible scripture throughout the book adding a whole level of comfort, hope and love. Preach to Yourself is real, practical, honest and so authentic that you will want to get a copy for everyone you know…seriously!

Thank you to Booklook Bloggers for the opportunity to read and review this book! 

Break the cycle of doubting yourself, take God at His word, and talk back with truth – a new message of freedom from bestselling coauthor of Wild and Free Hayley Morgan.

We know Christ came to speak life, but then how come our inner critic keeps showing up and stealing the mic? If we’re honest, she’s a harsh one, saying things we’d never dream of saying to others: You’ll never measure up, you’ll fail again tomorrow, you just can’t get it right. 

It has been said that the eighteen inches from head to heart is the soul’s longest journey. Our head knows the good news is true, but our heart struggles to believe it, and it is in this gap that we battle to believe the promises of God.

Hayley Morgan, coauthor of bestselling book Wild and Free, has wrestled with this tension her whole life. In Preach to Yourself, she tackles it head-on to discover how we can renew our minds to renew our lives. For every woman who struggles with repetitive, negative self-talk, this book will show you how to identify the toxic loops where you get stuck and replace them with the truth of God we can believe with our whole selves.

This is not a “try harder” reprimand, it’s a “believe better” invitation: to take God at His word when He tells you who you are. Come along and learn a simple practice to break free from the lies holding you back, and step forward into the fullness of life God has planned.

“Jump” Start your Cardio with TKO Sports

TKO-logo

Happy Good Morning! Who’s ready for some workout gear talk? When I was a kid I LOVED to jump rope at recess. There was just something so fun about it and as a kid I never seemed to get tired! Somewhere over time I guess I thought too old for it. Then about a year ago my twins each got a jump rope as a prize from a carnival type game. They were so excited and I have to admit I was too. They of course asked mommy to show them how it done….Oh my gosh I REMEMBERED jumping rope is SO MUCH FUN! Why did I stop having jump rope fun!?! Whoa rabbit trail…the point is I was beyond thrilled about getting a new adult sized jump EEKKK!

About TKO Sports “At TKO Sports Group USA Limited, we are committed to building a company that inspires the design of innovative products in the promotion of wellness and healthy living. Whatever It Takes is not just a tag line, it’s our lifestyle.”

I love my TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope in Plum + Cherry {my absolute favorite color combo!!!}

TKO

When my TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope arrived I was SO excited and I’ve got to tell you it does NOT disappoint!  This rope is AWESOME and was specifically built for speed making it be a fantastic and fun way get my cardio in.

This jump rope is extremely light and the grips are super comfortable and easy to grip. I did have a little bit of a learning curve while holding the rope…so I haven’t really used a jump rope from the century, did you no long have grip the handles as tight a physically possible?! {gotta love those 80’s PE jump ropes 😉 } I quickly realized keeping my grip light made easier and way more fun!

I have had so much fun with this I started searching for jump rope workouts on pinterest! Here is the one I have so far liked the best because you can do which ever jumping style you prefer! I HIGHLY recommend having a bottle of water or two around during this workout!

I think I will be creating one in the near future!

So let me ask you, do you remember ways to jump rope?

TKO2

There are so many fun ways to use a jump rope like…

  • Basic Jump
  • Reverse Jump
  • Criss-Cross
  • One-Foot Jumps
  • Double unders
  • Agility drills

Something I really love about having a jump rope in my daily fitness routine is the ability to be creative…if you can think of it you can do it!

Why use a jump rope?

  • It’s portable! A jump rope can be taken and used pretty much any where. I like to take mine with me and jump rope while by boys are in tae kwon do!
  • In just 15 minutes you can burn 170 calories! WHAT?!!? yes!
  • Perfect for cardio and HIIT {High intensity interval training} at home. I actually love using my jump rope during the commercial brakes of my favorite shows!
  • You can get in some awesome family time…well at least we did by having fun jump rope challenges!
  • Helps with build stamina…seriously. The first time I used my jump rope I felt exhausted after just a few minutes, but with in just days I was able to easily jump rope for 15 minutes!
  • It’s probably the most inexpensive piece of exercise equipment you will find.

Perks of the TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope

  • Lightweight
  • 9 feet smooth PVC rope
  • Non-Slip Soft Grip Handle
  • Smooth Swivel Design for Agility Training
  • Fun colors to choose from

If you have read this and are thinking about going out and getting a jump rope so you can have as much fun as me I highly recommend giving this one a try!

Pumpkin Nice and Everything Nice Coloring Book for Adults!

0

Do you love to color? Is fall your favorite season? Do you love being encouraged by Gods Word? Then Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice coloring book is for YOU!

Taking time every day for yourself can work wonders for your mood (especially moms!) and let me tell you this books will definitely boost your mood!

Since I was a child I’ve LOVED to color! I had coloring books by the dozens and every single one was colored in from front to back! So when adult coloring books started hitting the market I was thrilled, but this one is different…the Word of God fills it, hence the name “Coloring Faith”

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice coloring book is filled with gorgeous fall scenes and sayings as well a bible verses!

0-1

I’ve been coloring in it when I get a chance over the last few weeks and I have to say it definitely improves my mama mood and helps me relax! As it’s getting colder it’s fun to color in it with a hot cup of tea by type fire when the kids are snug in their beds, it’s SO peaceful!

I’ve seen a few others review this for children and while of course a child could color and love this, it is targeted towards adults.

*I received a complimentary copy from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.
