Keto Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

What is it about fall that makes you want to get in the kitchen and whip up something yummy? And by something yummy, I mean, something pumpkin-flavored! I used to think I didn't like anything pumpkin flavored, I have no idea why. I think the gross looking pumpkin puree didn't help, but once I got over that, I became obsessed.

Benefits of High-Intensity Interval Training

High-intensity interval training, also known as HIIT, is a form of interval training that involves short intervals of maximum intensity cardio interspersed with longer intervals of low to moderate-intensity cardio.

Any type of cardio exercise can be used for a HIIT workout including running, swimming, walking, jumping rope or the use of equipment such as a treadmill, elliptical or stair-stepper.
