Christmas Cardio Circuit


It’s Monday Motivation again for Day 15 of the Type Happy Holiday Challenge. Start this week with a sweaty workout that will kickstart the rest of your awesome week! Today I got a good one here for you! The challenge is to create a fun, exciting playlist of holiday jams and then complete this circuit as fast as you can. If you need to take breaks definitely do so and then when you are ready, continue where you left off. This will get your cardio going, blood pumpin’, and your muscles workin’!

The circuit routine:
15 pushups
30 sit-ups
40 lunges (20 on each leg)
20 jumping-jacks
30 squats
Repeat this 4 times!

For a great holiday workout music mix check out the Youtube mix called “Ultimate Christmas Party MegaMix by DJ pluTONYum.” I liked that one the best.

You CAN do it!! Don’t ever think that you can’t!

HO! HO! HO-liday Paleo, Low Sugar, Dairy-Free Eggnog!

Drinks, Seasonal

What’s more festive than a paleo, low sugar, nondairy eggnog drink to curl up with while watching Christmas movies?! …Sounds like a perfect night to me! Type Happy Challenge for Day 8 is make some of this delicious nectar and sip on it as you have a relaxing night in!
