#LGBeautyAndBooty Challenge: Upper Body Strength (W6D5)

It's taking all I have not to get emotional when I say this....happy last workout of the Beauty and Booty Challenge. This quick, yet effective workout is the perfect wrap up for the challenge and the week! If you still need to get in a 20 minute cardio session for the Fit Commit Week, today is a great day for that because of the shorter length of this upper body workout!

I mean it when I say... I am extremely proud of each and every one of you who completed this challenge or even just parts of it. I hope it has proven to you weight lifting has some of the best physical effects and even greater results on the inside! As a community, I've seen you grow even closer during this challenge...I just think it's so amazing to know that you're not alone on this journey and I want to thank you for sharing your life with each other and supporting one another ((and the emotions are spewing lol)) I love you girls with all my heart and I'm so excited to share what I've got next for you...check back in Sunday! continue reading + to view today's workout, click "read more" below...

#LGBeautyAndBooy Challenge: Upper Body Volume (W6D3)

Real life experience... after this arm day, I was attempting to put my hair in a high pony tail braid. Unfortunately, thanks to this workout, I had to stop and let my triceps rest half way through braiding hahaha #LGGirlProblems I hope your post-workout experiences are a little bit better than mine ;)

In honor of this being your last arm workout of the challenge....really kill it!! continue reading + to view today's workout, click "read more" below...

Looking good is great, but feeling good is even better. And the combination?! Well that's in the LG Secret Sauce ;) Today is a feel good workout at it's finest! In fact, I also included one of my all time feel good cardio's a home workout version for those of you without gym access, so feel free to choose either one.

Side note...I know many of you are working out from your home. With what is coming after the Beauty and Booty Challenge, I made sure that the plan will be tailored to YOU...your workout preferences and equipment available. So whether you workout at home or in the gym, there's options for everyone! :):) continue reading + to view today's workout, click "read more" below...


When I first came up with this idea, I was going to make a quiche in a pie pan as it normally is. But then it dawned on me, how adorable these would be as mini-quiches?!

Mini-quiches it is! And, they’re so practical for a meal prep!

These would be perfect to reheat when you're running out the door. They're so cute that they make me want to host a fancy little brunch to serve these on a platter. They can be easily doubled or tripled.

They're a little spicy from the cayenne, but if you don't like heat – feel free to leave that out.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup shredded frozen potatoes
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large organic eggs
½ cup almond milk
½ cup shredded Monterey Jack ((or dairy free cheese alternative - Trader Joes & Whole Foods have great options))
½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
½ small red onion, diced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
¼-½ teaspoon cayenne

*Recipe makes 6 mini-quiches (1 serving = 6)

Eat Your Way Lean Food Plate Sections Fulfilled: protein, fat, carbohydrate, vegetable, extra

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease the mini-muffin tins with olive oil. ((If you want, you can use a regular muffin tin and size it down to 3 muffins))

Place potatoes in a small microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on low for 1 minute. You just want to get the chill off them.

Add the salt and pepper, and stir well.

Press the potatoes into the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and almond milk. Add the cheese, tomatoes, onion, cilantro and cayenne (you could use other veggies and seasonings to switch up this recipe).

Divide the mixture between the tins. Return the muffin tin to the oven and cook until the eggs are set, about 25 minutes. They're done when you insert a toothpick into them and it comes out clean.

Let cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the tins.
