There was soooo much anticipation for our trip to Dublin. Ty & I have been going full steam ahead since Christmas (craziness right?!) and this was going to be our last trip while living here in Europe. AND it was our first extended trip away from Aiden. EVER. So my nerves were on fire from excitement, anxiety & anticipation all at the same time.
I love, love, LOVE short & intense workouts. In the middle of it I kinda feel like cursing like a sailor, but when I'm finished, I feel like I'm really D-O-N-E. There's a sense of massive accomplishment from the sheer will power to do it in the first place, and being able to do this workout anywhere, anytime fits with my busy lifestyle, especially now as a working boss-babe mama!
I find it so weird that even though our move back to Canada is around the corner I've somehow been feeling super homesick. Maybe it's all the anticipation of seeing family and close friends again. Maybe it's the stress of planning ANOTHER international move, and this time with a toddler in tow. In any case, it's during these times I yearn for my mom's amazing Croatian home cooked meals to give me a dose of home & comfort.
The Squat is one of my FAVORITE exercises. It's a multi-joint, multi-muscle (compound) movement that delivers such incredible bang for your buck. It's been one of the foundational moves that has helped me tone & strengthen my legs and butt while simultaneously strengthening my core, and it's an every day (functional) movement that everyone should know how to do safely and effectively.
With summer days quickly dwindling and work about to begin in full tilt (sniff, sniff!), our days & schedules are quickly getting filled, which means time management must be a PRIORITY. But let me be clear: this means that we must make time for our priorities, the things which are most important to us. Healthy, home-cooked meals are a big priority to us, BUT sometimes we just don't have uber amounts of time to prepare a lengthy or complicated meal. That's where sheet pan meals come to the rescue!
