Pumpkin Challenge + Pumpkin Protein Recipes

I am PUMPED (get it?!) to share this challenge workout with you! Just like every other basic white girl in the world, I looove my pumpkin recipes. A few of the recipes I have made (so far) include pumpkin soup, pumpkin pasta sauce, pumpkin bread, pumpkin overnight oats, and pumpkin coffee creamer. Pumpkins are good for more than just eating though… you can workout with them! No weights? No problem.

No, I’m not talking about just getting it in and our of your cart/wagon when you first buy it. Although that can be a struggle in itself if you’re a #pumpkinoverachiever. Get your weekend workout in with this workout. Record your time in the comments. Can you beat mine??
