    a few thrift hauls

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog and honestly, I’ve been focusing on my YouTube channel. When we first started self-isolation back in March, I really started working on video ideas to build up my channel’s videos. It’s been my long-term goal to start a YouTube channel so it’s been where I’ve been putting the majority of extra time. Be sure to subscribe to keep up on my journey! We’re also in full nesting mode around our house as we prepare for our Baby Girl! Check out this post if you missed the announcement. I’m 31 weeks when I’m posting this so we’re in the home stretch…

    At-Home HIIT Circuit

    Recently, my knee had a flare up and I haven’t been able to do much cardio as I’d like. Since summer is on the way, I’m maintaining which usually includes at least one cardio session per week. If you’re new around here, you can read about my knee troubles here. After four weeks, I’m able to do squats and dead lifts again, but cardio stills tends irritate my knee because of the repetitive motion. I decided to get a little creative this past week and put together this at-home HIIT circuit I can easily do in my living room and that wouldn’t bother my knee. I also wanted a workout…
