  It is St. Patrick's Day, which means we have to have a St. Patrick's Day workout....of course! My house doesn't seem to get to crazy for this holiday, but we do still have some fun with it. This year I made sure I was prepared with green clothes, in year's past I have been scrambling like mad the day before trying to find anything green for my kids to wear. And along with being prepared I have planned out a fantastic St. Patrick's Day workout.

We have the letters spelled out. You are going to complete 3 rounds (March is the third month) of 17 reps each.


Working out and being healthy is not a matter of luck. You need a goal and a plan. If you have found yourself in a little bit of a lull get back to it.

Happy Fit Friday! 
Much Love and Peace~ Nichole and Ruthie
