Legs, Booty and Abs Workout! Oh MY! My Favorite 80 Day Obsession Moves!!
If you’re like me, there is nothing better than feeling long and lean after your workout. It’s one of my favorite feelings!! Here’s a short video with some moves to achieve a strong core, tight legs and round booty. I will be making another one soon with some other bun burners.
Grab a pen and paper and sketch a quick note so you have the sequence handy. You’ll do 15 reps of each move. On the moves that require you to alternate legs, simply count the right leg 15 times as you alternate. You’ll also need one weight, I’m using a 10 lb dumbbell.
If you have slides and loops at home, grab those to have handy. If you don’t, grab a paper plate to work as your slide and forgo the loops. If you have hard floors, you can actually use a small towel to use as your slide, it will give the same effect.
I would love to connect you with the bundle pack that gives you these amazing little tools to enhance your workout, so message me for details on the current sale packs!
There are over 800 workouts for you to stream from any device / smart t.v. and you’d have me as your one on one coach. These moves are samples from these amazing trainers and workouts. I did not come up with them myself. 80 Day Obsession moves are some of my favorites. Autumn Calabrese is one of my favorites.
- Here’s your order and you can repeat this 2-3 times depending on how much time you have. Make sure to run in place and warm up.Tension
- Squats with loop. I love how this move engages the legs and booty at the same time.
- Four Way Lunge. I love this move!! You’ll go into a back lunge, curtsy, side and then a squat. By the 15th rep, your legs will be screaming.
- In and Outs. Start at the top and press your core to the floor as you extend your legs and arms back.
- Cabbage Patch Crunches.
- Bear Kicks with a 10 second hold at the end. Make sure to keep your knees just 2 inches off the ground and your hands directly under your shoulders.
- Swimmers. Amazing move for the lower core and back.
- Side Tucks with loop. 15 each side.
- Squat Jumps with loop and weight. Do two lateral shuffles before each jump squat moving right and left. This one will blast your heart rate for an extra calorie burn.
- Inner Thigh Burner. 15 each side. Tuck the loop around the arch of your outside foot and around the ankle of the leg that is being lifted.
- End all moves with some leg stretching, morning stretch and the upper body connector stretch. Stretching post workout is so important!! Don’t ever skip that part.
I hope this was a fun workout for you to do quickly!! Leave me a comment if you have questions or you completed this!! How did it feel? I hope amazing!!!

Babyliss Pro Curling Iron, The Best Curling Iron EVER!
I am only slightly freaking out right now, girls. If you have been frustrated at all with your hair and how it’s styling, something from this blog should help you start enjoying the entire process. I know first hand how frizzy and unruly hair can be in humidity and also from the highlighting chemicals and styling tools. Did you know your flat iron and curling iron can actually be damaging your hair every time you use them?
I know now that my curling iron was not helping me one bit!!! I was so tempted to invest in the T3 system I kept seeing women rave about and while I’m sure the tools are beyond amazing, my budget does not fit that type of investment right now.
So I asked my hair bestie and she quickly knew where to send me. Straight to the Babyliss Pro line of tools. After posting about this on my Instagram stories today, about 4 of my friends immediately responded that they have been using this brand of tools for a while and LOVE it!! I was behind the times on this but not any more!
Here is the curling iron I purchased. 1 inch is the perfect size for me right now. https://amzn.to/2PlpcyI
I also talk highly of these tried and true styling products I’ve been loving lately. Here they are in order of how I use them on hair wash day. I explain how and why I use them in my video for you.
First I sleep on this pillowcase to prevent fine lines and hair kinks: https://amzn.to/2UmtKsl

REVIEW OF SHAUN T’S NEWEST PROGRAM “Transform :20”
“Conquer your mind…so you can TRANSFORM your life.”Finally, Transform :20!! It has been 3 years since we’ve had an entirely new workout program from Shaun T. We got to spend a week with him in SHAUN WEEK but it’s now time to TRANSFORM our bodies and minds in 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks!
What is TRANSFORM :20?Transform :20 is a total body workout for both the body and the mind. Cardio, strength, and massive core balance work using a step riser. It is not the step aerobics you may think but rather a nonstop 20-minute workout to burn crazy amounts of calories, sculpt your body, and build long lean muscles. If you know Shaun T, you know he takes cardio to a whole new level of burn! Within five minutes you’ll be breathing heavy, within ten minutes you’ll be sweating and within 15 minutes you’ll be checking the clock. 20 minutes is all you’ll need with Shaun, I promise you that!!!
- 20 minute workouts
- 6 days per week
- 6 week program
- Modifier in every workout
- In real time…you will never see the same workout twice! I used to get so bored with my workouts, it would be harder to push play. This way, we will stay engaged and excited for what’s to come each day. I even heard he throws some curveballs and surprises our way.
- Super simple dialed in nutrition plan to help you not only achieve and sustain your goals!
When is it available?Launches in April 2019 on Beachbody On Demand. BUT, you can get VIP Early Access in January 2019! Fill out the Transform 20 with ME!! form to get in my VIP Test Group!
Who is TRANSFORM :20 for?Everyone! Shaun T created this program knowing that there are many people who just don’t have the time to work out…not anymore! As a new father himself, he finds less and less time to get a workout in. This is what motivated him to create a program for EVERYONE. And if you’re thinking that 20 minutes isn’t enough for you…just you wait. I pinky swear you’ll be maxed out by minute 20!! There is a modifier in every workout for you to follow if you’re just starting out on your fitness journey. I personally will be taking some of the moves at my own pace if I can’t keep the exact speed of Shaun. The goal is always progress, NOT perfection on our team. When can I start Transforming? You can join my TRANSFORM :20 Online fitness challenge January 2019 with VIP Early Access. BUT, you can start transforming your life now. I will have a custom hybrid calendar to give you of all Shaun T so you can get acclimated and join our crew early. ORDER TRANSFORM :20 to get started on your health and fitness journey now as we wait for TRANSFORM :20.
What equipment do I need?The Beachbody Step and that will launch on December 4th with the packs! I will be logging in bright and early that day in case there is limited supply. I am personally SO excited for this new program. When I was in my early 20’s, I found myself at a really low point. I was eating fast food 1-2 times a day, having bags of sour patch kids or red vines every night and the weight started to pile on. My anxiety levels were also rising and I knew I needed to get healthy. I started taking a step class at my local gym and found a love for it. It was really the only time I got excited to workout. Sure Billy Blanks Tae Bo in my living room was fun but this step class was everything for me. I watched the instructor intently, I wanted my body to move exactly like hers did. As I lost weight and worked to keep my body and mind healthy, I truly found a piece of myself in that class. The instructor ended up moving and I went on to other classes but I will never forget the feeling I found there. I still find those same feelings with every new program and trainer I work with. This time it’s all at my fingertips because of my “Netflix of fitness” membership I have. Now, being a mom of two I can push play from home and work it around my schedule, not the gyms. That is everything to me and keeps me in the game. I am in better shape now thanks to this lifestyle and all the amazing programs I do than I was before kids!!! I never thought that was possible!!! Anything is possible for you, too, and I hope you decide to jump on this opportunity!! I find that the new year already brings a ton of momentum but by adding in a new workout calendar and linking arms with my fitness besties, I will feel unstoppable. Plus, I know this one scares me a little which is a good thing. Change happens on the edge of my comfort zone and I need to shake things up often. Hence the reason why I love coaching, it keeps me accountable to my fit crew and also trying new and scary things! Fill out this form to reserve your spot!!! Fill out this Transform 20 with ME!! form, add the “commit” pic I sent and the before and after.
