It was a suppppeeeer duppppeeeeer cold day in Montreal yesterday!
Thank God, it was a day off and I didn’t have to go to work! I am pretty sure that you won’t judge me if I told you that I opted for a workout at home. *Don’t you dare judge me! Haha!*
Also, I saw this picture on another blog and it inspired me to do something different today, just to prove myself once and for all that I don’t need winter clothes to hide anything!
I decided to go for a 10-minute Barre Burner workout to make my legs shake a bit. I guess, it’s an addiction of mine ever since my first choreography class back in my rhythmic gymnastics days. But then, who doesn’t love that feeling, right?!
I also coupled it with a Samba Dromme dance workout.
I bought this CD a couple of months back, because it was released by one of my favorite bloggers, Gina. In my opinion, it is worth every single penny I paid for it: it’s super fun, energetic and definitely gets your heart pumping! And the live music is just incredible! If you’d like, you can find and purchase it here. I thought you might want to get a glimpse of it, so here is a teaser I found on Youtube.
By the way, just in case you’re wondering, the previous video was done by her too!
Anyhow, by the end of the workout, I felt absolutely great and sweaty. I decided to finish it off with a stretching session that I shared with you last month.
FUN FACT: Since our puppy is only 8 weeks old, she gets SUPER excited about EVERYTHING. As a result, I figured I’d workout in a spare room on the second floor to make sure she doesn’t run around after me and I can get a quality training session. Guess what?! The little munchkin climbed the stairs all by herself for the first time just to see me! *That’s what I call TRUE love!*
Please, disregard the poor quality of the picture, I had to react fast to the excited screaming of my husband! Haha!
What are your favorite dance workouts? What do you do to keep your pets away while you’re exercising?

I’ve been needing new ways to exercise at home since I just don’t want to brave the cold some days in ND! I’ll definitely check out these!
Let me know what you think! xoxo Olena
I love Gina’s videos. I just did one because I saw this post! I also love Bollywood style dancing.
Hi Julie! I love Bhangra too, it’s super fun and also easy to follow haha! The latter is very important to me because I personally don’t think that I’m that great at dancing, gotta practise more! 🙂 xoxo Olena
