Hey guys! Happy Decemburn!!

Ahhh look at that doggie. He looks like a literal ball of poof! So cute. Is it snowing where you are? We just had rain here in LA and it was so nice to pull out the rain boots and umbrella! I love the smell of fresh rain. Also because there is a severe drought in southern California, we desperately needed it!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! I spent it in the Bay Area with my fam. Ate…a lot.

Yes. I know the turkey looks burnt. But inside it was so moist and delicious!

My sister made this super delish apple pie from scratch and it was bubbling when it came out of the oven! I don’t know if I have ever eaten a freshly homebaked pie before, so this was heavenly. So heavenly that when my sis cut me a slice, I dolloped a huge ball of vanilla ice cream on top and wanted to hold it to take a pic, then

THIS HAPPENED.

Maybe it was a sign.

Also, I saw that a lot of you snagged up crazy deals on shopblogilates.com and bodypopactive.com! GOOD JOB! I cannot wait to see you wearing your new clothes! I loooooove creepin’ on you!

fans

 

Please use the hashtag #shopblogilates or #bodypopgirl when you take a pic in the clothes so that you can get featured the websites! This way POPsters can see how the clothes fit on all types of beautiful bodies. It’s one of my fave new features in the stores.

Speaking of features…there’s a huge Blogilates App update coming soon. Let’s just say it’ll alleviate the pain that was caused by the odd case of our community site. Sad times. Really sad times.

FINALLY! New video!

 

6 Min to Sexy Abs is the name of the workout and you will love love love! First of all, it’s hard and I know you like hard. Second of all, it is the kick off of #POPsterPresents! I have 4 straight weeks of gifts, prizes, and giveaways for you guys all the way up until Christmas!

Today’s giveaway prize pack includes:

1) BEATS Solo 2 Headset in Pink

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 1.42.55 PM

I wanted to give you guys these awesome pink Beats headphones because I want you to have the best music when you’re working out. To me, music pumps me and it drives me to GO HARDER. It’s the worst thing when my ear buds keep falling out or if the connection is bad and I get spotty sound. So, this was the perfect gift to start off #POPsterPresents! To add to the clear sound, the ear cushions are super soft and you will get addicted to squishing them. (Trust me.)

2) Fitbit Charge

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 1.43.35 PM

Last year, I gave away a Fitbit and you looooved it so much that I had to do it again! The new Fitbit Charge has a display screen so you can see how many steps you’re taking and how many calories you’re burning in REAL TIME. Also, it’s a watch in disguise!

Here’s how to enter!

1. Leave a comment underneath “6 min to sexy abs” on YouTube and tell me why you love winter!

I will pick one winner next Monday Dec 8, 2014. You can comment as many times as you want and you can be from any country, any age! Also, I wanna thank Verizon for sponsoring our first #POPsterPresents giveaway! More goodies to come later this week too :)

dec 1

Ah! And I want you to print out your new #Decemburn Calendar! (Just sign up for my free newsletter and I will send you the password.)

31 days guys. 31 days til that New Year’s Eve dress! Let’s kill it and then dress up til we’re sparkling all over the place! I wanna see all our pics posted the eve before 2015! Let’s do it!

    Winter i not the best time of year but i like coming home after a long cold run and just sit down while watching a movie with my family and sipping on a hot cup of hot chocolate. yum

  • Natalia says:

    Winter is not my favourite time of the year because its all cold but i like to come home after a long cold walk and just sit down with my family and watch a nice movie while sipping on a cup of hot chocolate.

  • Jessica says:

    I love winter because it gives me an excuse to bake new fun goodies to give to friends, and of course SNOW! Skiing here I come :-)

  • Heather says:

    I’m not a winter person,but I love to cuddle. I love the holidays,and because of the holidays,I want to look good,so I work out harder.

  • Siera says:

    I love winter so much I moved states to get more of it. It’s cosy, I’m never in a bad mood from being cold (like I am when I’m hot). I love to curl up under blankets and watch horror movies or read a book with my cat in my lap. I can always put on more layers to warm up, but in Summer, even though I would really like to sometimes, I can’t peel my skin off. I honestly just find life is easier in winter (it doesn’t snow where I live, so I think that makes a difference).

  • Fauve Altman says:

    Awesome six minutes abs blaster!

    I love winter because of the magical vibe it brings. Late at night the light of the moon on the snow when its snowing makes it beautifal in the city streets. The fact that kids as much as adults start snowball fights! and crosscountry skiing of course!!

    love

  • Samantha says:

    I love the Christmas decorations and snow! Yes, snow! =D
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Grace says:

    Guys, can you help me please? Where can I find the video list per day? Cause I can’t find it anywhere.
    Also, what happen with the blogilates social network the my.blogilates.com ? When I try to access, it bounce back to this web.

    Thanks! :) :D

  • Lauren Shanks says:

    Happy winter everyone (: why I love the winter is because I get to be w. My family an show them all the love I have for them. I get to see my children play outside in the snow an their little rosey faces smiling ear to ear while they play. When people think of winter they think of the holidays. They think of what they may or may not get. Its not about presents but more the precense of bringing joy an happiness into someone else’s life that maybe less fortunate than you. I’d love to win some cool prizes but even if I don’t, the present of Cassey getting my body in shape is a prize itself!!! Thank you Cassey

  • Olivia says:

    The best part about winter is working up a sweat to stay warm! Also chunky scarves, big mittens and over sized sweaters :)

  • Eden ONeil says:

    I love Winter, it’s probably my favorite time of the year. I love the summer because it’s warm out and I get to wear the cute clothes that the warm temperature brings out, but the Winter brings a whole different atmosphere to the table. There are so many snippets of memories I have from my childhood during the Winter. Moments where I would go outside in the middle of a snowstorm and everything was just calm, and in that moment I would remember to breathe and take time to enjoy my life as it was right then. I have memories of finding creative ways to decorate our house for Christmas, because growing up with an artist for a mom meant that we never had a normal Christmas tree, instead we improvised with ladders and green clothes, paint buckets and green paint, anything to make it as unique as we both were. I think the reason I love Winter so much is because everytime the season comes around, no matter what’s going on in my life, I am brought back to the simplicity of my childhood. Whether I’m stressing over finals, or working so much I stop doing some of the activities I love, the second I step outside and I get that whiff of icy air, I’m brought back to the tranquility of my childhood.
    Sorry for the long comment! I just love winter :)

  • Nancy P says:

    I like the Xmas holidays and holiday wear!

  • Bok says:

    Thought winter is cold, you can snuggle up to your loved ones and have a cup of coffee. that’s simple winter bliss.

  • Kristy says:

    I love winter because I get to wear my sweaters and boots! Love Blogilates and my new BodyPop Activewear!

  • Karishma says:

    The thing about winter that I love is wearing fuzzy boots:D

  • Alexis says:

    I feel dumb, but how do I find the strengthen and lengthen video?

    • Adele says:

      On the app! When you download the calendar on the Blogilates app, you should be able to access it.

  • Aude says:

    The apple pie looks absolutely gorgeous! Could we have the recipe please??

  • Sine says:

    I love beeing indoor with the family. Playing, makeing cake, and also dooing my pilates. My children are sometimes also dooing the “easy” cardio. So sweet.
    I also love seeing the snow faling. And listening to Christmas music :)

    Love sine for Denmark

  • Nadia says:

    Hi Cassey. I don’t have a Google account so I couldn’t post a comment about why I love winter. To begin with, I am from Australia so it that means it never snows. My favourite winter habit is drinking hot tea while snuggling in my pjamas and completing a romance novel or finishing my homework. I also like winter because of the comforting sleeps and snuggling in bed. I also like winter because I get to accessorise my clothing with cute scarfs and beanies, gloves, coats, with a pair of nice ankle boots. Thanks ad that’s why I like winter

    • Nadia says:

      BTW Ive been searching everywhere for a good, inspiring fitness role model and coming across your videos was perhaps the best thing that has happened to me. love to see your next videos that are up your sleeves. bye! much love nadia. Xxxx

  • Jessie says:

    My favourite thing about winter is the rainy mornings when you’re in bed and you can hear the drizzle outside. On these days, I just love to snug up in bed and have tea while reading a book! :)

  • Jessie says:

  • Amanda says:

    I love winter because it makes snuggling in a warm bed that much more cozy!!

  • CC says:

    Winter is sipping hot chocolate in front of a fireplace with my favorite book!!

  • Cara barone says:

    My favorite thing about winter is reconnecting with old friends and spending time with family during the holidays. All of the travel and tempting food make you get creative with your workouts…which is necessary to spice it up! Plus, you can drag your family to the gym and start positively influencing them :)

  • Marie Kay S. says:

    Love this workout! My favorite things about winter are..the first snow, curling up in a blanket next to a fireplace with a good book and hot chocolate, and the holiday excitement!
    Thanks, Cassie!

  • Kay says:

    Feel the abs!! Love it!! I love the winter! The Snow! The Lights! the excuse to snuggle up! all around pretty awesome!! Now that I live in LA I dont get the cold but there is just something in the air!!

  • Gabrielle Malouin says:

    Hi Blogilates community!

    I look for someone who want to do with me the 12 weeks makeover. This person will be like a correspondent who will also make this tranformation. I do not feel good with my actual body and I want changes, healthy mind and happy life.

    Please, somebody?

    Because I can’t do that alone and I want it so much, you can’t imagine (ok , you CAN imagine :P)

    Thank you guys :D

    P.P.S. Sorry for my mistakes, my english isn’t really good XD

  • Beth B says:

    Winter means crunchy snow under my feet and big puffy scarves! :)

  • Kristy says:

    I love winter because I love how cold it gets. It’s so refreshing! I live in VA and we get to experience all the seasons, which is great.

  • Ashley says:

    I love winter for all the holidays! Who doesn’t love so many excuses to get together with family and friends and celebrate!!

  • Lauren R says:

    The things I love about winter are cold weather running gear and snow!!

  • I am not a winter girl AT ALL! But here in Germany it’s already really cold :(

  • Astrid says:

    Hi Cassey!!! your thanksgiving looked awesome :)

    Now I am sooo desperate to know if you will be releasing a 2015 exercise and food diary like you did for 2014!? I have been diligently filling in my meals every single day for this year, and now that I’m coming towards the end of it I’m freaking out! I love to record all my efforts so it would be awesome to do it all again in 2015!
    xxoo

  • saidy says:

    winter rocks because i get to wear layers and layers of cute clothes and accessorize like none other while i spend some quality time w/my friends and family as we look at some twinkling lights and drink hot tea

  • Megan Goodell says:

    I love winter because there is nothing more beautiful than a fresh snowfall on the fields and trees throughout Vermont. I am so lucky to live in this state! :)

  • Petra V. says:

    I think one of the beautiful things about winter is Snow. I love how every time snow falls, I can associate with my favourite holidays such as Christmas and New Year. To me, winter snow symbolizes joy, happiness and family time. Furhtermore, when other than winter can one also have snow ball fights and build snowmen?? :D

  • Elizabeth B says:

    Hi Cassie! I did this workout a little late! BUT I am all caught up on the calendar now! Whew! My abs were dying after the first move! Anyways, what I love about Winter is the crispness of the air, and the smell of snow coming. And shortly after you smell it, later that day or the next morning looking up and seeing the first flakes fall to create a winter wonderland. It’s like magic!

  • Samantha says:

    I love winter because it brings me back to my childhood! Everything from the snow, to the hot cocoa, christmas decorations, making snow angels, curling up with a warm bowl of soup and a blanket on snow days… every year I get to relive my childhood again and it brings me so much happiness.

  • Ify says:

    I love the time spent with family and friends.

  • Angela says:

    I like winter because you can sit inside warm and cozy with a cup of hot tea while watching the snow fall outside:)

  • Laura says:

    I know this post isn’t terribly relevant for this entry, but I just wanted to thank you for putting the beginner variations in the videos lately! I am not a beginner, I’ve been following you for almost four years and am a die hard popster, but I recently developed POTS so I can no longer do cardio or toning movements that involve changing height easily. I don’t know why I didn’t think to just simplify the cardio routines and do the same moves but slower until now, but I didn’t! You are amazing! I’m so happy I can follow the calendar fully again!

  • Your December calendar is full! Happy Holidays!

  • Vicki says:

    Please tell me there are more of the black ogorgeous gym bags being made!! I’ve wanted one for a VERY long time and now they’re sold out. :( I really hope you plan on making more. They’re so beautiful! :)

  • Ange says:

    Honestly there isn’t too much I love about Chicago winters lol. It is freezing and when the snow is a day old its all brown from dirt and cars…ick.

    HOWEVER, I do LOVE Christmas Eve! Our town gives out paper bags and candles with sand. People are supposed to line their property with these candles and light them on Christmas Eve. It always looks SOOOO beautiful! I love driving through town and seeing the candles, combined with all the Christmas decorations, and hopefully a nice snowfall too! Then top off the night with a warm fire and cup of hot chocolate in anticipation of Christmas Day! And this Christmas Day will be extra special because it is my daughter’s FIRST CHRISTMAS!

  • Sarah says:

    I love winter because of Christmas – I love the Christmas season so very much. I love cozy fires, flannel sheets, snow ( even though we get more rain than snow here in Portland). I’m especially excited for this winter because we are going to try to get our kids up skiing for the first time!!!
    Thank you for this giveaway and for your sweet heart towards all of us.

  • Sarah says:

    My favorite thing about winter, there are so many things! Christmas has to be my favorite part of winter, not because of the present, but because of family. You kinda get to know your family a little better to get them the perfect gift, everyone has fun and it seems like one time of the year that everyones happy and joyful!

  • Tania says:

    I LOVE winter for cold, wintery, rainy days, wearing scarves, sweaters, and boots, cuddling by the fireplace with a good book or Hallmark Christmas movies, hot cocoa (or a glass of red wine), and my 6-minute Blogilates ab workout to keep me on track!

  • christina says:

    I love everything about winter….
    The cold, for some reason i love running in the cold..
    the holidays, and of course snow!!!!

  • Vineta says:

    Hey Casey!

    I am a newbie here! I love winter because of all the Christmas movies you are allowed to watch without others judging you. And of course all the delicious food around Christmas time.
    Hello from England!:)

  • kavita says:

    Iam from india, i love winters as Winter is full of bright colours be it the beautiful flowers in the gardens or people dressed in bright warm winter clothes. i love to Snuggle in those bright colourful warm clothes. Surrounding turns into a riot of colours. Here we get Hot chai and there is nothing more comforting than a hot piping cup of tea on a cold winter morning. We love to sit and soak in all the sunshine at the rooftop. Sunrise in winters in nothing less than stunning. Jogging is the best idea during this season. A plate of steaming hot pakoras to beat the winter chill. Here winter is so incomplete without it’s favorite dessert ever. The delicious gajar ka halwa…yum!!!….iam totally a foodie so does the winter brings lots of delicious warming food…cassey you must visit india and iam sure you will fell in love with this country which is full of diversities and loving people

  • Frauke says:

    Hey Cassey! I am 19 years old and from Germany and today we actually had our first snow. And that’s mainly why I love winter. I know it sounds weird but I like when it snows so much that driving car is difficult. You are kind of stuck at home. All people are so busy and stressed out in the christmas time so it’s nice to be forced to just enjoy the beauty of the winter, stay at home and enjoy the time with your family. I also love winter because I like crafting gifts for my loved ones :). I hope everybody is having a nice december and I’m gonna do day 3 of the Decemburn calendar now. :D

  • Juile says:

    I love winter because hot yoga, spin, and Blogilates help me warm up! That turkey looks delicious! I just wanted to say that I can’t when readers criticize you; all you do is motivate us and give us the tools to create healthy lifestyles! Thank you!

  • Iona says:

    I live in Australia, so right now it’s summer! But what I love about winter is that everything gets so green and lush, we have a scorching summer so when the winter rains come the plants love it!

  • Aaleah C. says:

    I love winter because of the smell of the air. I get nostalgic every time I breathe the nighttime winter air ;)

  • Lisa says:

    I love winter because of all the comfy sweaters I get to wear!

  • Danielle says:

    Hi Cassey! This is my first monthly calendar. I’m kind of confused on how to easily find all the videos for each day. I did the beginners calendar and those videos were easy to find.

    Thanks! (:

    • Adeela says:

      On her youtube channel she has playlists for each day of the calendar. Hope that helped!

  • Maysa Tron says:

    I love winter because I have a legitimate reason to walk around with my big blue Cookie Monster slippers on all the time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • Liz Wilson says:

    I love winter because of the holidays and because it’s so much cooler out (I live in Phoenix where it’s in the 100’s all summer!)

  • Lauren says:

    I love winter because it’s fun to snuggle by the fire with a naughty treat. And by naughty, I mean….CHOCOLATE!

  • Kristy says:

    Love Blogilates! The thing I love about winter is the smell of wood fireplaces burning when I walk my dog in the morning! So cozy!

  • Morgan says:

    Hi Cassey! I love winter because of all the decorations that everyone puts up! Everyone always seems to be in a better mood this time of year! Also, I love having time to get together with family. My family lives in different states and we always get together over the holidays! That is what I love most about winter! (:

  • Ana says:

    I love winter in Puerto Rico because of the great weather and because Christmas means the return of family traditions.

  • Josy says:

    Well, quite honestly, I really have to think hard about that one… :D
    It’s cold…I have to drive in the dark at work and also back home in the dark….it’s harder to eat healthy (I’m just more in the mood for cookies than for salad) and…did I mention the coldness?! :D

    BUT I really like Christmas Shopping and I’m already looking forward to present my family and friends their christmas gifts, so that’s why I like winter :)

  • i just love winter for all the holidays!

  • nasicha says:

    I love winter because the light gets all pale and milky like a painting every day

  • Martina says:

    Hi Cassey,

    Winter is Christmas, Christmas is FAMILY and FRIENDS and all this together are magic memories. Unfortunately, I was not able to be with my family almost for 4 years and I really miss them! All of you out there, enjoy Christmas moments with people you love.

  • Ashlee says:

    I don’t necessarily love winter, but I love the smells and flavors that come out of winter! And I do love all the lights and festivities!

  • Nami says:

    I like winter cuz you can go ice skating!

  • Sabrine says:

    Hi Cassey !

    I love winter because outside (in France) it is freezing cold and when you need to warn you up, you put on yourself tons of clothing but your nose still keeps being red !!! You are happy to share a warm tea cup and sometimes a hot chocolate with your friends and family. I love winter too, because it is the ski season and it is really great :). Moreover, during the winter, the landscapes here are just AMAZING !!! It is full of snow and you can make so great pictures.
    Thanks for having reading me….
    By the way the apple pie looks fantastic and delicious : Enjoy !

  • Ummm…YES to to BURNT turkey!! Its totally my fave and always worth the crispy exterior. Looks delish! Also, how great is it that the Bay Area also got some rain this weekend? Made it all the more cozy feeling and I could almost feel the thirsty plants lapping it up! <3 the pink Beats btw!!

    hey cassie!

    is there a way to enter if we dont have a youtube account?

  • Kristina says:

    My favorite thing about winter is the snow of course! I am a big kid at heart and I love playing it and making snowmen. I also love to get dressed all cozy with scarves and boots for winter.

  • Caitlin Copeland says:

    Hi Cassey!!!!!
    I LOVE winter because I love breaking out toasty slipper socks and booties and sipping on hot cider or hot chocolate. I love the magic that the holiday season brings. Despite all the crazy holiday shoppers there is a warmth that comes out of those that you know and don’t know this time of year. I love driving around and seeing all the beautiful lights on the houses. Also I love the holiday music that is performed by my churches choir and hand bell choir. I am definitely NOT a fan of the cold but I do enjoy watching the snow fall from the sky. This may sound weird but I love the smell of the crisp winter air as well. I also love knowing that there is a new year around the corner, so there are new opportunities to accomplish better things and take on new experiences in the coming year. I would say these are the reasons that I love winter in a nutshell!

  • Elaine L. says:

    I love winter because I get to breathe cold crisp air, make snowmen, forts, and go tobogganing with my family. After all that, I get to drink all the hot chocolate in the world curled up in a big blanket with fuzzy socks in front of the fireplace. I love winter because it’s when my son was born, and I get to celebrate Christmas and his birthday all in the same week!!

    Btw, my abs are burning as a write this. LOVE IT!!
    xo

  • Melissa says:

    I love winter because myself and two other people in my family have birthdays in the winter months! Its refreshing to spend all that time catching up with my family and enjoying their company. I also love how excited everyone gets when the first snowflakes fall and how everyone wants to be outside enjoying nature! Winter also brings excitement into the long winter months because you never know what you will wake up too! Winter is truly my favorite season!

  • Tara says:

    Hi Cassey! I did your beginner calendar over the summer and loved it, but then got a job (as a high school teacher!) and I’ve been so busy with school that I’ve been neglecting exercise. I tried the first day of #Decemburn and it was great! But also, I definitely can’t handle doing six videos a day. If I have to cut it down, what do you suggest? Should I go top-down on the list for the day until I’m too exhausted, or do I do one abs/one whatever/etc? Or is there a better way to determine it? I hope you’re having a great day! xx

  • Elaine says:

    Even though there isn’t officially winter here in Singapore, it still gets me in the holiday mood but the weather has been getting chillier since November and what I love about this holiday season is u get to warm myself up with your workouts, Cassey! They really make me feel happy:D
    From Elaine

  • Diana says:

    Hi Cassey! I just discoverd your site and visited your channel in youtube , and i just love your workout , i would like to do excercises but I am a beginner and here are two calendars one its called pop pilates beginner workout and the other its december workout calendar plan , so i want to ask you wich should i start? Please answer the question . Thank you

    • Marie-Caroline says:

      Hi Diana,

      You can definitely begin with the one you’re more comfortable with!
      Personally I’ve begun with 15 days of the beginner’s calender and I felt motivated enough to jump onto the monthly calendar.
      If you feel strong enough or if you’ve been doing physical activites or pilates before, you can probably begun the monthly one as Cassey explain all the positions very well.

  • Medin says:

    I can’t write coment because i don’t see any coments and i realy wanna have this Headset i will travel to Swicerland in two weeks and i need some :3

  • Lydia B. says:

    EEEK! So excited for you (and Popsters like myself) for your app update!

  • Autumn says:

    First of all I love this video! I really felt it in my abs..especially after thanksgiving. haha
    My favorite thing about winter Is sitting by a warm toasty fire in my house with my family and drinking hot tea or hot chocolate and listening to christmas music, WHILE watching snow fall outside!

  • Did you make something for your family on thanksgiving since your sister and mother did? :)

    • blogilates says:

      Hmmmm actually no I didn’t! I basically traveled on Thanksgiving and came into dinner! Ooops!
