About a year ago I made the switch from Fitnessblender to Cathe


Fitnessblender is AWESOME!  and FREE!!!  If you are wanting to start a workout program and feel lost.  Go here!  They are super smart and can get you on track with easy exercises that require only dumbbells.  You can totally pick those up at a Walmart while you're grocery shopping! The paid programs are worth the cheap price.  I bought almost all of them and enjoyed them!

I left because I had reached my full potential with them.  It wasn't challenging anymore and I craved more!  I wanted more versatility in my workouts and more of a push even if I had to pay for it!

Who is Cathe?

Cathe Friedrich is a fitness instructor and has been making workout dvd's (and VHS lol) for almost 2 decades.  She is BIG into encouraging home workouts.  No machines required to get fit and her body proves it!  I like her because she's fun!  She has 450 different workouts to choose from.  She does everything from step aerobics, dumbbells, HIIT, Cardio, Barre, Kickboxing...Just to name a few.  She was inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame so she kinda knows a thing or two!

450 Workouts? Sounds Expensive?

It's really not!  I do everything online.  I don't buy the DVD's.  I pay $20 a month and have access to everything she's made (even the stuff from the 80's) and she has LIVE workout at her gym in Jersey every Thursday.  I can workout LIVE with her and have access to all the past LIVE workouts she's ever done!  Never and opportunity to get bored!  Right now I am about to complete her STS series that has taken 3 1/2 months to complete.  It's a strength building and muscle growing program!  I have throughly enjoy it!

How do I sign up?

Go here to sign up to for OnDemand Cathe Live.  You'll be officially known as a Cathlete for life!  There is a great Facebook page too!  Do a search and look me up :)

Best of luck and Happy Lifting!

My allergic reaction to jalapeños

****** If you are having an intense burning from cutting jalapeños and found this blog on the web, scroll to the bottom.  I have labeled what you need to do!!! It was Saturday afternoon. I had a wonderfully planned party at my house for 6pm. I diligently cleaned all day. I had let my house go, so a deep clean was in order. I was saving all my cooking for the last hour of the party so everything would be warm. It was 5pm and I was ready to cook. Being 6 months pregnant, the breaking back work of cleaning had almost done me in, but it was worth it. The house looked great. I planned to make a few dishes, but my star dish was 'Jalapeno Poppers'. I had them in restaurants in the past, but never made them. I got the recipe off a Facebook page. She hand typed it (no blog or star winning website) so it was simple instructions. I destemmed, cut them length wise and deseeded 15-20 jalapenos. Followed the rest of the instructions and into the oven they went. I de

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ ! This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"   BUT................. This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto .  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities  here. Snickers Smoothie Into your favorite blender add the following:  1 cup of Unsweetened Almond milk (or if you're in heavy weight loss mode, 1/2 cup of almond milk

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work  NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking b lend (homemade or THM brand) 1/2 c pure can pumpkin 1 tsp vanilla Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay* Pinch of salt 1 Tb almond butter 1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it 1 Tb coconut oil Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as yo
