Train Like A Boss Workout

Disclosure: I have received this product in exchange for highlighting this business. All opinions are my own.

Who doesn’t love a nice sweaty interval workout? I know I do. But here is the problem that I have always run into. Timing my intervals. I have tried using a stopwatch, my heart rate monitor, and numerous apps on my iPhone which work, but still leave me continuously having to glance down at the screen. This gets annoying. Today I am happy to announce that I have discovered a solution to my problem. Meet the GYMBOSS.

GYMBOSS

How adorable is she! This little beauty is my new favorite workout buddy. She is small, super easy to setup, and can be used as a interval timer, stopwatch, countdown timer, or a clock. There are numerous types of workouts that this little timer is great for including running, CrossFit, HITT,  and weightlifting. My favorite feature is that it can be clipped on to my waistband and the alarm can be set to either beep or vibrate at me. I love knowing that I will never again be having to glance down at a screen to know when I need to switch up my exercises.

It is hard enough sometimes getting in my workouts at home on days I don’t go to the gym and this little device sure makes it easier. If you hadn’t noticed from my previous workouts Caden likes to be right in the middle of everything. I love that he wants to be involved but sometimes it can be challenging when he runs off with my cell phone and I am in the middle of an interval workout. I am looking forward to many more workouts using my GYMBOSS :).

This little piece of equipment has allowed me to take control of my workouts again. No more excuses that the baby ran off with my timer for me. It is time to train like a boss! Here are the exercises for this workout. I did not include pictures for Alternating V-Ups or Plyo Lunges. If there is any confusion on these exercises just let me know and I will do my best to clarify.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Overnight Blueberry French Toast #glutenfree

How yummy does this look? If I could have you all over for breakfast this is what I would make us! Plus it is gluten free! I didn’t say calorie free, which is why I would also invite you to stay for a workout after we ate ;). This recipe is super easy but does take 10-12 hours of chill time in the fridge before you can pop this tasty dish in the oven.

I grew up in a gluten free house and My entire family loves Udi’s Gluten Free Foods! I can tell you first hand that anyone who is diagnosed with a gluten intolerance is very thankful brands like Udi’s exist.

My mom is a rockstar in the kitchen and loves the challenge of taking recipes that our family loves and converting them to a gluten free option that everyone can enjoy. Following in my mom’s footsteps I took her Overnight Blueberry French Toast recipe and added my own unique twist to make it gluten free and oh so yummy!

Udi’s Gluten Free Cinnamon and Raisin Bread was the perfect addition to this already winner of a recipe.  This is perfect for a holiday morning or any other special occasion and makes the house smell incredibly awesome!

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of Udi’s Gluten Free Cinnamon and Raisin Bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups coconut or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, chilled
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Directions

The night before

  1. Grease a 13″ x 9″ baking dish. Rip bread into multiple pieces, about 4-5 per slice. Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla, and milk into a large bowl.
  2. Add sliced bread and mix gently until most of the liquid is absorbed into bread.Place bread mixture evenly into prepared pan. Cover and set in refrigerator overnight.
  3. In a small bowl combine flour, brown sugar,and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs. Cover and set in refrigerator.

The next morning

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scatter blueberries and sprinkle crumb mixture over bread.
  2. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Before serving cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

This recipe will serve between 4-6 people. 

I love, love, love this recipe and I hope you will too! You can follow Udi’s on twitter and instgram @udisglutenfree.
