KICK ASS KETO HOLIDAY COCKTAILS
As you all know, I follow a fairly regimented nutrition and exercise plan. That being said there are certain times of the year when I allow myself special treats. During the holiday season I like to indulge. I spoil myself with delicious food and cocktails. This year I’m concentrating a little more on building muscle so I try to stay low carb most of the time.

It’s time to go outside into this crisp, autumn air and have some fall fitness fun with Phyllis! Let’s use the season’s bounty instead of traditional weights to exercise.

So get to the supermarket, get your weights, and let’s get started!
I take my exercise routine seriously but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to have fun. It’s good to mix things up and what better way then to go outside and workout. This fall fitness routine engages your entire body so even though it may look a little silly it will get the job done!Read More
