Hey Killer B!
Now that the great annual “Pumpkin Spice in August” debate has been waged on Facebook (for the record, I don’t do the Spice until November, thank you very much – we have 90 degree days through October here in central California!), that must mean it’s time to think about Fall. Or, at least the month of SWEATember. 🙂
Here’s all the news you need to know (and probably more that you didn’t – ha!):

Back to (old) School
But first, let’s quickly recap August, because it was SO! MUCH! FUN! I had thought it was going to be a little bit of a (much needed) break for me, not recording workouts, but instead I spent a lot of time looking through old workouts and getting great new ideas for the future. Check out all the Back to (old) School workouts in this playlist to see some of my old favorites, and maybe you’ll find yourself a new favorite!
August was also really busy for me, personally. We dropped my oldest son off at college, which was as hard as you would imagine, and just two days later, I ran my seventh ultramarathon, the Run de Vous 100K (link is to the race recap on my running blog). What an epic adventure that was! It was so awesome to reach a goal that I’ve been thinking about for over 8 months. And also pretty exciting to be done with it, so I can start dreaming up new goals, too. 🙂
So, what kind of workouts did I do for myself, without the cameras rolling in the month of August? Well, Killer B, I have to confess… I didn’t do anything! Not a dumbbell, not a kettlebell, not even a plank or a sit up! Can’t you believe it? Me, either! I knew I would take a little bit of a break, but I had no idea it would be the whole month.
And let’s be honest, here, maybe you’ve had a little bit of a “summer slide,” too? I’ve been hearing for the last two months over in the Killer B Hive (my super fun, interactive and private Facebook group – join here!) that it’s been tough to keep up motivation during the hot summer months. So what’s a Killer B to do?
Turn the page in the calendar and get back to it. Because you know what’s coming?
All new workouts are coming to the Pahla B Fitness channel this month, and they are going to be sweaty! Now, to be clear, they’re not all going to be extra advanced or anything – we don’t want to get injured coming back from the summer slide – but I have some fun and challenging workouts ahead of us. Look for Low Impact Cardio, Kettlebells, HIIT workouts and more of your favorites in the next few weeks.
The New Weekly Line-Up
You know what else is coming soon? Short, sweaty workouts every Tuesday, for 10-Minute Tuesday! I had been toying with this idea for some time, as the quick workouts have been very popular, so I decided to make it a regular gig, instead of mixing it up with Q & As and How-To videos. But, Pahla, you were probably not asking yourself but are now that I’ve mentioned it, where will that type of content go?
*little drumroll, please*
The BUZZ is back! I was so excited when I first started this fitness vlog, and really enjoyed the idea of it, but the actual execution left something to be desired. Recording episodes on my phone turned into all kinds of technical difficulties, and I just had to let it drop. But, the fact is, I still have more to say. 🙂
So, the new-and-improved BUZZ – no iPhone videos this time! – will be a regular feature on Wednesdays, with an all-new focus: Fitness Mindset Matters. Because your fitness mindset totally matters! We’ll be exploring motivation, self-sabotage, goal-setting and lots more. I’m really looking forward to having more of a conversation with you here on the blog about these topics.
What this means for the Pahla B Fitness channel is that there will be new content every weekday:
- Monday = Full Length Workout
- Tuesday = 10 Minute Tuesday | Short Workouts
- Wednesday = The BUZZ: Fitness Mindset Matters
- Thursday = Full Length Workout
- Friday = The Friday Fun Run
But, wait! There’s more…
And if all that good stuff wasn’t enough, I have two more little surprises for you, in the form of two new FREE 4-week Killer B workout guides! I get requests for new Guides all the time, and I was so happy to finally be able to put these together. I think you’re going to love ’em!
The Killer B Beginner’s Guide Low Impact Workouts for Fat Loss is four weeks of very beginner-friendly workouts with absolutely no jumping. There are four key workouts each week, plus a bonus workout if you’re up for it. Most of the workouts are under 30 minutes and all of them are low impact. This is a great place to start if you’re just getting into working out consistently.
The Killer B Guide to Killer Strength, on the other hand, is perfect for you if you’re ready to get into Beast Mode. This intermediate-level Guide is not for the faint of heart! There are six workouts each week, and the Guide is laid out with a split training protocol, meaning that each day has a specific focus. For example, Mondays are Cardio, Tuesdays are Upper Body, etc. These workouts are tough!
But, of course, you’re tougher. 🙂
I’m looking forward to hearing what you’re most excited about in the month of September – leave a comment below!
