And away we go, Killer Bs – hurtling into the second half of 2018! Are you ready for it? Are you where you thought you’d be in reaching toward your goals?
Though, to be fair, I set absolutely no goals for myself this year. So… maybe I’m exactly where I thought I’d be? ? I guess it’s all about perspective.
Here’s what I’ve learned about working toward goals, though: progress is almost never linear. Nor is it steady. Or especially predictable. The only thing that’s certain about reaching your goals is that you WON’T if you give up trying.
So, let’s keep trying.
This week’s Mini Challenge is a good one, my friends, with a fun mix of quick, stackable workouts and slightly longer (but never more than 30 minutes!) sweat sessions that are put together in a way that can help you meet ANY goal you have, here in the back half of the year.
Wanna lose weight? Great! Eat the right number of calories and treat yourself to one of these workouts each day.
Wanna re-shape your body? Terrific! These routines are the perfect combination of cardio, strength, functional fitness and mental fortitude.
Ready to learn how to run? Oh, Killer B! I’ve got you covered.

On MONDAY, we’re starting the week with a surprisingly sweaty NO SQUAT BUTT WORKOUT that’s all floor work and no equipment needed. The SUGGESTED STACKER is all upper body and can be done seated or standing. And if you have the time and inclination, I’ve included a BONUS STACKER of all standing abs!
TUESDAY’S all-new Let’s RUN podcast answers the fitness mindset dilemma of HOW TO STOP STARTING OVER on your fitness journey – a topic that hits reeeeeeeeeeeal close to home for me! We’re enjoying a lovely 30 minute WALK + RUN (two minutes walking with one minute running) while we figure it all out. At the end of the video, I’ve included a link to another 30 minute walk + run that I referenced in the workout, where I include lots of tips for TRACKING YOUR PROGRESS toward your goal.
WEDNESDAY’S workout is a great STACKABLE CARDIO + STRENGTH KETTLEBELL workout that really gets the job done in just over ten minutes. Of course, if you’d like more, there’s a SUGGESTED STACKER at the end of the video to keep you moving!
On THURSDAY, we’re getting sweaty without jumping with a fast-paced, non-stop LOW IMPACT CARDIO routine that needs no equipment (other than perhaps a sweat towel)!
And FRIDAY we’re finishing the week with a finisher of a workout, like we do. This perfectly balanced FULL BODY WEIGHT LOSS workout has all the cardio, strength and abs you need to get you on your way to the weekend.
