Easy Workouts and Healthy Post-Workout Snacks

Summer is almost here and I can't wait to sip on a refreshing blueberry mojito while laying out by the pool. The winter holidays have passed and I struggled with working off all of the baked goods, savory dishes, wine and cocktails that accompany winter festivities. To work off the extra food and to feel my best during bikini season I've put together the perfect at home workout regimen and I am so excited to share it with you!

My simple, total body workout (targeting your legs, butt, shoulders, and arms) takes less than ten minutes to complete and can burn upwards of 200 calories. So simple, in fact, that I often do it with a coworker right before lunch. All you need is a jump rope (and a yoga mat if you are outside)!

Set a timer for ten minutes and complete:

-50 jump rope 
-50 sit-ups
-40 jump rope
-40 sit-ups
-30 jump-rope
-30 sit-ups
-20 jump rope
-20 sit-ups
-10 jump rope
-10 sit-ups

If you finish the cycle and haven't hit the ten minute mark yet, start over and repeat. This simple workout will get your heart racing and blood pumping! Be sure you finish off your workout with metabolism boosting foods to capitalize on your hard work. My favorite post-workout treats are protein-packed peanut butter toast with berries or avocado toast if I had a really intense workout.
