Easy Pumpkin Treat and Cardio Mash


I taught body pump this morning and pulled out a old bicep track to THIS song, that I totally love. What can I say? I’m a total fan of the classic 90’s. I’m pretty sure everyone loved it, mainly because of my poor excuse amazing dance moves and no breaks.

After pump, I wanted to do a little extra cardio but had no desire to run because my hamstrings are SO sore from my tabata climb workout yesterday, so I wanted to do something that would go by quick and keep it interesting, with NO running.

I put together this quick mash-up and jumped from machine to machine to make the workout go by quick!


With Thanksgiving coming up, my pumpkin cravings are at a all time high.

I whipped up a low-cal treat to get me through a little afternoon slump.


3 minute Pumpkin Muffin


  • 2 tbsp. Coconut Flour
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 C. Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg


Mix all ingredients with a metal fork in a microwave safe bowl. This takes a minute until it is well combined.

Cook in microwave for 3 minutes.

Top with your favorite topping! I went with a little vanilla bean coconut butter that this lady whipped up, and it was perfect!


This treat is packed with fiber, and protein and will satisfy that pumpkin craving and sweet tooth!

What would a Saturday be without a home project! We are repainting our kitchen cabinets and I’m super excited to get this remodel underway. Mainly finished though!

Question of the day:

What was your workout today?

Any fun plans for the day?
