As I reflect on the first two weeks of 2019, I recognize the importance of knowing where you are now and knowing where you want to be. 2019 is a year of growth for me. Self-love, self-care, and mental health are three key areas I am focusing on in 2019.

One of my 2019 intentions is to devote time every single day for self-growth. Currently, I am reading “Girl, Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis. Likewise, I listen to Rachel’s weekly podcast RISE. She challenges my current perspectives on life and motivates the heck out of me. If you are looking for a new perspective, humor, advise, good stories, or a place to grow check her out. This is one of my favorite quotes from her book. Let it sink in.


“Comparison is the death of joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday.” – Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face


Later this week I will be posting my intentions for 2019 and tools I have created to get me to my goals. 2019 is going to be the best year yet.

Now for the part that you are all waiting for… the COUNTDOWN WORKOUT!


BALANCE SWEAT & CHEERS: Countdown Workout-

This workout can be completed anywhere. All you need is yourself. Start with 10 reps of each movement and move to 9 reps then 8…7……2…1.

You can supplement this workout with a cardio workout (Cardio & Strength Circuit Workout or StairMaster and Circuit Workout) or any workout of your choice. You could use this as a workout finisher, in which you complete it at the very end of your workout.

OR you can have this be your full workout, starting with 10 reps and working to 1 rep. If you are doing this as your entire workout, repeat the circuit 2-4x.

This is a perfect workout if you are not in the mood to leave your house but want to get a good sweat in.
