Hey guys!

How was your weekend? It was the first weekend in like 30 days straight that I finally got some time off! Because of the POP Pilates trainings, my Saturdays and Sundays have been all booked. So this weekend I enjoyed some relaxing gym time, shopping, and eating out! It truly felt so good.

I must stress the importance of taking a break every once in a while. If you don’t let yourself rest, your body and your soul can get burnt out. Last week, I had just gotten back from NYC and then threw myself into 2 days of filming. Wednesday’s shoot started at 10am and ended at 10pm. When everyone left, I had one of those nights where I left my makeup on, kept my contacts in, and just DIED on the bed. I was exhausted to death. All of 2014 I had pushed, pushed, and pushed myself and pretty much felt fine. But last week, my body was like NOPE.

So this past weekend felt so amazing! I hope you had a good one too.

Your new Monday video is 6 Min to Sexy Thighs (above)! It’s a grand combination of my fave thigh toning moves in a short amount of time…so you know what that means. It’s TOUGH :D Also just because this is a thighs video, I want to touch upon the whole thigh gap thing. Please remember that your worth is not measured by the distance between your thighs. You are more than a gap. A number on your scale. The measurement of your waist. You are a person with skill, talent, character, a heart…you are more than just the physical.

So even though this is a fitness blog, and we do focus on getting flat abs and perky butts, I hope that on your journey, you begin to find and realize the actual joy in working out. Leave the vanity aside and work out because you like it and it makes you feel good. Then, I promise, the body that you’ve always wanted will follow along.

This week is Thanksgiving week and it also marks week 3 of the #8weekhotbody Challenge! So many POPsters have already seen positive changes in their bodies, weight loss, and have made so many new friends in the community. It’s so cool. I cannot wait to see the after pics on Dec 31st!

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for you. For your support. And for your friendship. I ran into many of you guys when I was in Orange County this weekend and I loved hugging you and getting to know you. It makes me feel so safe and comfortable to see you. Without you guys, there would be no Blogilates Community, and things would be so different. You help me achieve my dreams every day. Thank you. So. Much.

Oh yah, and those of you on the #8weekhotbody Challenge DO NOT WORRY about Thanksgiving Day! It’s your YOLO meal. You’re good! You get one a week anyway :)

Oh and speaking of Thanksgiving! OH MY GOODNESS. Black. Friday!

You know, when I was a wee child, I used to beg my parents to take me out to the stores and shop in the madness. Now, I don’t want to wake up that early so I will instead do my shopping from the comfort of my bed on my laptop. I still get amazed every time I drive past a Best Buy or a Walmart and see people lined up in tents like 2 days before Black Friday. Like really!? That dedication is intense. And cold. I just can’t. I heard some families even grill a turkey in front of the store and have their Thanksgiving feast right there on the cement.

Well, as you know, every year on Black Friday, ShopBlogilates.com has A CRAZY MASSIVE OMG ARE U KIDDING ME SALE so you better get your shopping carts ready when the clock strikes midnight. I am planning some RIDICULOUS discounts so that you can get your fix on your fave workout tanks, waterbottles, mats, and whatever else you’ve been waiting for all year long. Sign up for my newsletter because I will tell you what the deals are before anyone else.

    I’m just starting out this challenge, but my question is for the first day for example is it only 5 of the exercises each or is it 5 sets of 5 reps each?

  • Gabby says:

    Hey! I’m almost done week 3, I started just a bit into January. They don’t all take the same amount of time so i’ve had really really wuick days and long ones. I’ve never had to use up more than 40mins with puttering around finding the next video and stuff so just budget that and if you’re early, hey, longer shower for you!

  • Daffiene says:

  • Linda says:

    I am thankful for authentic people like you. Because it takes the pressure off a little bit and adjusts expectations to ourselves and to everyone else. This way I learn to appreciate what is while working for what I want <3

  • Tricia says:

    I am thankful for you Cassey. It was one year ago on Dec 1st that I started doing Blogilates every day. Thanks to you, I am living a healthier and happier life. I know you work very hard and I just want to say THANK YOU Cassey. You have changed my life. And I know I’m only one of many.

  • Ally says:

    This was very encouraging to me. I’ve been doing the monthly calendars since July and feel like I’ve gotten nowhere where I want to be. This is the first time that I can track that I’ve worked out 6 days a week for 5 months in a row! I’m so thankful for you Cassey because whenever I feel like I’m down you always seem to say the right thing at the right time. I’m going to keep going and I’ve just started to really try to eat healthy. I know there’s hope and I found something that I enjoy doing because of you Cassey! Love you!

    “How do your human thighs feel?”
    hahaha, much love, Cassey. Have a lovely TGiving!

  • I’m thankful for my ability to run. I ran the 2013 Boston Marathon and still to this day every time I lace up and run I think about how thankful I am that I was able to finish the race that day safely.

  • Natalyne says:

    thankful for the internet coz how else would i, living halfway across the globe from you, have access to your channel and your workouts everyday? (: thankful for chocolate <3 <3 thankful for family and friends and where i am! <3 <3

  • Rachel says:

    I am thankful for recovery, because depression and binge eating disorder are some of the most difficult and life-threatening things I have ever had to deal with in life. I am thankful for the blogilates app, and how every single morning I would feel encouraged by this passionate community! I am thankful for my mother for always lending an ear whenever I have hour-long chats about my food diary, new recipe ideas, and any of Cassey’s latest personal accomplishments, and for doing this because she knows that this woman has made a huge impact on my life and that the joy and enthusiasm glowing from my face is genuine and enough to make her believe that I will turn out okay. Lastly, I am thankful for my role model and fitness trainer, Cassey Ho. She has taught me so much about my true strength physically and mentally, and I have so much respect towards her commitment in changing so many lives.. Happy Thanksgiving and much love, Cassey, from me and my mother! <3

  • I hope this OMG AEE YOU KIDDING ME SALE has free sjipping to Canada? Pretty please, Cassey!

    I am most thankful for you, because without you I would have never gone into the career path I am choosing now: health and fitness coaching.

  • I’m thankful that my parents are healthy and that I have had another wonderful year with them. I’m thankful thy I’ve finally buckeled down, went back to school to finish what I started. Thankful for my loved ones furry and non, that they are healthy and I’ve had the joy of another year of life with them. Also thankful for you, Cassey, if it wasn’t for you I don’t know how motivated Id be to work out and eat clean. I’m on to week 3 of the #8weekhotbodychallenge and I couldn’t be happier. I feel great inside and out.

    Before the challenge I was having severe pains in my stomach morning and at night and I had been to the doctor but she said it must have been something i was eating or not eating on time. So that the stomach acids may have been giving me an ulcer… Now, 2 weeks after the challenge I have not had a single pain!

    So again I’m thankful I ran across your channel back in February. You’ve been a great inspiration
