Time goes fast!!! One min. I’m super dedicated going to the gym several times a week, I blink and it has been a month! since my last class.
So grateful I went to the mall last night and not today because this afternoon at Fashion Place Mall there was a shooting. Looks like I am officially an online shopper.
For the last year now I have been maintaining and strengthening by using my treadmill, 2 pound weights and my yoga mat.
About 3 to 4 times a week I have dedicated 40-60 mins a day to working out with the intent to maintain my weight, strengthen my muscles, build endurance, and to get more flexible.
A day in the life:
(Im choosing to write it this way so that I can easily explain both diet and exercise)
Wake up: get kids off to school , grab my 44 oz diet dr pepper soda, eat a piece of candy (usually a mini reesse’s peaunut butter cup or a york patty) and either exercise at my house or twice a week I do mommy and me gymnastics for an hr with my baby boys.
*for healthier option substitute candy with piece of fruit. This is what wakes me up and what I enjoy eating. I am not saying its healthy its just my cup of tea.
I then hop on the treadmill. Some days I walk at a speed 5 at a very high incline for 40 mins and zone out to tv. And on other days I run sprints at incline 0. Alternating my speed from speed 4 to 7 (4 mins at speed 4 : 3 mins speed 7)
I will incorporate 2 lb weights when walking on my treadmill and also when I am stretching after my run.
I always cool down by stretching. I believe this is a great way to keep your muscles long, lean and your body limber.
**I am trying to get back my flexibility. My husband and I are currently in a “split off” on who can get their splits back fastest. The whole family is getting competitive and involved on this.
After I work out, I drink a glass of water and protein drink. My fridge always has light muscle milks in them. I pour the pre-made drink on to a cup of ice and enjoy.
If I have time I will eat a sandwich around 1 and a normal sized dinner around 6-7.
This is a very brief summary of my lifestyle/diet, so If you have any questions at all feel free to ask either on my comments on instagram (I see those way before I get to my DM’s) or feel free to ask on here via comments.
Have a great weekend!
Big day for our family and Brooklyn (18 months). He learned/is learning how to ski!
This being my first year skiing with out a baby in my belly or strapped to me!
Lately we have been stuck in the movie and sushi date night routine, so on Tuesday we decided to switch it up. It started with a couple funny giphys going back and forth with the mr. Then it went full blown Blades Of Glory, costume, spandex and all. Dallin backed out of the costume portion this go around. We had no idea the rink would be disco night, which just added to the flare!
You should have seen the looks on the kids faces when we came home and showed them our moves. They are begging for us to take them soon. This is a date night that well ALWAYS remember!
Not only did we hike the Y for our first time but we carried 3 children up the entire hike. Thank heavens the sky was brilliant and the view was breathtaking. Dallin and I both carried the babies in packs and alternated carrying Holland in our arms or on our backs. Defiantly a night to remember!
