Trying to get back into a routine after the 4 day weekend for President Obama Day. I did manage to get in some workouts. Some workouts were at the gym and some were at home. I belong to two gyms. It’s seriously a waste of money but I have my reasons. Sometimes it’s just impossible to get to the gym. You have to get the kids and yourself ready. Or you just don’t have the time. I have a few great workouts that I do at home when there’s just not enough time. All of the workouts are short and sweet! I even included a 10 minutebeginer HIIT.
Let me start off by saying no matter what my weight is, I’m going to make the best of it. Even though I can make it “Do what it Do” doesn’t mean I still don’t want to get back to my “Happy” size and or weight. My entire closet is filled with clothes for my Happy size. I think we all have a Happy size.
In October after my trip to Turks and Caicos where I drunk and ate around the clock, I was over it. I was at my highest weight outside of being pregnant. I was actually wasn’t that far away from my delivery weight. That’s when I told myself I had to do something. I did. I ate right and shed a few pounds in just two weeks. Then Thanksgiving came. I threw it all out the window. Then the holidays came and I experienced seasonal depression for a couple of weeks. Food was my comfort. I gained everything I lost back and then some. I could only wear sweatpants. I was over it. So I decided it was time for me to get it together.
That train is never late… New Year, New Me! Yes, I’m on that! The new year encourages a fresh start. We can start over any day but something about round out the end of the year makes us feel like we have a clean slate and I’m here for it. I’ve been struggling to get back to my pre-baby weight from both Harper and Peyton. That may never happen but I’m still determined to be in the best shape for ME and fit back in to the clothes in my closet.

Once you have kids it’s a 100 time harder to stay fit. My schedule is packed with work, kids schedules, cooking and traveling, it can be hard to find time to work out. Somehow over the years, I’ve managed to find ways to consistently get a workout in. With the help of Fitbit from Kohl’s, I’m going to share how I manage to healthy active lifestyle while keeping up with my family.
I’ve shared my own fitness goals since I started this blog but I also have goals for my family. I want girls to know that being active should always be a part of life and never stop moving. Kids are watching what we do so it’s important to lead by example. Mister and I have done our best to take the kids to the gym with us, the park or participating in sports. Both of the girls love to get outside and get moving. My new obsession is cute kid active wear. I even found some workout clothes for Harper. Continue Reading
