Total Body Home HIIT Workout

Total Body Home Workout

Sometimes I fantasize about having hour-long workouts and other times I just want to get it DONE! I have a feeling most of you can relate to the latter. This total body workout HIIT workout is for those days when you want a little of both - a butt-kicking, empowering workout that only lasts as long as your favorite New Girl episode (with commercials). All you need is a set of dumbbells heavy enough to challenge you on the last 2 to 3 reps of each exercise. That means you can ditch the commute and complete this workout in the comfort of your home. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Complete as many rounds of the exercises back-to-back as possible.

Though, come to think of it, I think it took all of two dates for my boyfriend to indulge me with information about his bathroom needs :/ (it's a good thing he's adorable). On the other hand, I've only recently been somewhat comfortable enough to even admit that I needed to do anything but tinkle. When you become comfortable enough in your relationship to admit that you don't poop rose petals and sparkles, it can also translate into other parts of your life. Think about it.

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Committed

The first thought that went through my mind when I woke up one morning as someone new's girlfriend was, holy cr*p. I was thrilled, petrified, and everything in between.

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Dating

I consider myself to be a strong, independent woman. However, there's a very simple way to turn me into a sixteen year old girl in a matter of seconds - a text from a new beau. During the first few months of dating my now boyfriend, my heart rate would speed up every time my phone lit up with a text message.

The first couple months of dating someone is a roller coaster of excitement and utter fear. No one wants to get hurt and everyone wants to be loved. When you're trying to connect and impress with
