Hi Everyone,
I was exhausted today, but I pushed myself to get in a good workout. It’s been one of those weeks where it feels like the world is conspiring against all of my plans. We are one day closer to the weekend now, and I have been pushing through it. So, please excuse my tired appearance in the video.
Someone shared a delicious, healthy recipe for cheesecake with me. I am going to try it out to make sure it’s tasty before I share it with you guys. J
As the holiday’s approach I think it’s especially important to have healthy items that seem indulgent. I make healthy tartlets that are a great alternative to sugar laden pies and desserts. I made some last night so later today I will take pictures, and share the recipe.
Also, this weekend we will be ramping up the cardio aspect of my workouts. So if you’re following along be prepared! Let’s work together to prevent any holiday weight gain before it even starts!

  1. Long great full body workout, I feeling all my muscles 🙂 Plank Walks is very challenging and enjoyable, it’s new exercise for me and I like it very much. Thank you, Melissa! My time: 5 minutes of high knees (782) + 40:18 (advanced level).
