My Workout Calender This Week

Hello Hello And Happy Tuesday!

So, I originally started this blog to share my workouts, and well, I haven’t done that much lately.

Haha! {Although they haven’t changed much since the last time I’ve updated everyone!!}

I thought it would be fun to try to plan and recap my workouts each week. Plus writing anything

down always holds me more accountable!!

Below is my workout plan for this week (6/19- 6/25)

 

Monday- Tone it Up 15 minutes HIIT circuit during naptime. 30 minute walk with Paisley

Tuesday– Teach Pop & Stroller Strides. {That’s usually enough for the day, haha!!}

Wednesday– Evening jog with Paisley, 3 miles.

Thursday– Teach 2 Pop Classes. And that is enough!! My body is still getting used to teaching 2 classes in a day. There is a yoga class right after Pop, so I might stay for that!

Friday– My active rest day. Active meaning I’m always lifting or chasing my kids so I do get some activity in no matter what! ūüôā

Saturday– I’ll likely do some light upper body- like a Barre Arms workout. Sometimes I kind of make up my own as I go and other times I’ll just search youtube to try out some new stuff!

Sunday- Jog with Paisley. If I can get up early enough to beat the heat, I’m hoping to get in at least 4 miles!

 Side note: I realize I am SO bad at taking pictures on a regular basis. Haha, so I will leave you with this cute picture of Donovan. Everyone likes a cute baby, right?

 

 

Do you plan your weekly workouts?

What I’m Loving Lately

Hey everyone! How was the weekend? Naturally ours flew by and sometimes I can’t really remember what we did exactly…..a 2 year old and a 1 year old keep things busy busy!

It’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these posts, so I thought I would change that!!

{note: no affiliate links, I just really like this stuff & wanted to share!}

Reality Life with Kate Casey 

You guys know I am kind of a Podcast junkie and watch a decent amount of Reality TV so this is the perfect fit.¬† I actually don’t remember how I found this podcast in the first place but I’m so happy I did. She is HILARIOUS and discuses current shows and interviews past reality stars…think Melissa Rycroft from the Bachelor. Go download it now!

Chocolate Protein Powder

Yep more Tone it Up talk. I’ve been mixing this in my smoothies the past couple of weeks, so yummy! And they sell it at Target. Another reason to go to Target ladies!

Lululemon Shorts

The hubby spoiled me with a giftcard on Mother’s Day so I splurged on some new shorts. My stay at home mom & fitness instructor uniform is yoga pants but these will be perfect for summertime! They are so comfy and fit really well!

 

Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer

I’m trying to be more mindful of my dairy and sugar intake¬† & this is surprisingly yummy! Found it at Target……..of course!!

Splash Pads

Speaking of summertime….it’s already heating up here in Dallas! We took Charlotte & Donovan to our local splash pad over the weekend and they had a blast. I’m so glad there is one nearby as I have a feeling we will be here often!!

That’s all from me today, thanks for stopping by!

A Napping Baby Workout

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a workout, so this post is long overdue!! I know my blog has kind of been all over the place lately with the addition of my kiddos, me being a new mom, and staying at home. But the real heart of it has always been exercise: what people are doing, how to fit it in, what I like doing, what I want to try etc. With that said, I’m planning on sharing more workouts! Yay!

I’ve always been a fan of short efficient workouts. And these days, they are my go-to. Squeezing in a workout during naptime really is the best….it gives me a good mental break as well as the physical benefits. And honestly, I’ve noticed the biggest change in my body when I added in some HIIT type workouts. SO here ya go, get that sweat on!

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds each & repeat 3x through. Form tips and exercise explanations are below! {I used 5 pound weights, use something that feels tough the last 5 seconds of each exercise}

Below are some links to exercise demonstrations….maybe I will get fancy soon enough and do my own videos!!!

Down dog Push-ups

Curtsey Lunge with Chest Press  (perform chest press instead of a front raise)

Cross Over Jacks

Plank Up Downs

Back Lunge with Hop & Press (Add a hop with your front leg as you bring your legs parallel)

Twisting Mountain Climbers

Bridge with a Chest Press

Squat Jumps

Thanks for stopping by, I’m hoping to share some easy at home workouts more often & film some videos too! If you complete the workout, use the hashtag #fitgirlpwworkout, I’d love to see your check-ins!
