I mentioned that I would be posting a review of my experience with InsaniT25 (a hybrid of Insanity & T25) in my “Insanity Drop Outs” post a few weeks ago, so I didn’t want to leave you waiting! Check out my review, results & the hybrid calendar (created by none other than Shaun-T’s bestie, Tania aka “The Machine”)!

This recipe is my take on a recipe in the T25 Nutrition Guide! For those who don’t know, every T25 DVD set comes with an eating plan as well; T25 isn’t just about the workout! So I took a look at the nutrition guide & I thought I’d add a little heat, spice and shrimp to one of the recipes. The great thing about quinoa is that it’s high in protein, is gluten-free and, when boiled and then toasted on a skillet, has a great crunch that’s reminiscent of fried rice! #healthyandyummy To pull this off, here’s what you’ll need:
What better way to kick off 2014 than with a CFC Spotlight Thursday Interview?

One guess as to who I’m staring at…
I turned 30 just under two weeks ago, but for some reason my mind keeps coming back to my 20s with feelings of nostalgia! So, since it’s been on my mind (and I haven’t posted in ages), I thought I’d do a quick post on just 5 things my 20s taught me- some fitness-related, some just life-related. Hope you’ll read on and share your “20s revelations”! Continue reading

I just stumbled across a very interesting post on Well+Good this morning about “fashion-forward” sports bras. Especially as a woman who is a bit top-heavy, I always vacillate about whether my sports bras can be both fashionable and functional. I mean, I love looking cute at the gym, but I also need support!

As I burned it out to power jumps and push up jacks I thought “
OMG I’m exhausted!” “I wonder if there are people out there who have Insanity but didn’t ever finish? I would love to workout with and provide accountability to some Insanity Drop-Outs!!” I posted the idea on the CFC Facebook page and got a HUGE response!!
So the question is: are you insane enough to try again? Continue reading
