Hey Guys

*Note, I wrote this post yesterday with the intentions of posting it but then never did, so I’m posting it now!*

I can’t believe I haven’t posted for almost a week!  Where does time go?  It has been so nice out weather wise and I’ve been so busy doing I’m not sure what, but the days seem to be going by quicker than ever! 

I will be back to my normal posting starting tomorrow (today) with Cameryn’s week 11 update and then more of my meals, workouts, workout of the weeks and more fun stuff!

Workouts

I finally lost all of my baby weight and am about 1/2 under where I was when I got pregnant.  I’m starting to feel like I’m getting my old body back but still have just a bit more toning to do.  With that being said, I’ve been ultra motivated to get in my workouts.

My workout yesterday (Monday) was 45 minutes on the elliptical at home first thing when I woke up.

Today’s (Tuesday) workout was a mixture of cardio and plyo moves.  I did the following at home:

  • 10 minutes of elliptical
  • 20 squat jumps
  • 25 mountain climbers
  • 20 jumping lunges
  • 25 high knee lifts
  • 20 push ups
  • 25 butt kicks

*repeat three times and I finished it up with another 5 minutes on the elliptical for a cool down.

It took me about 50 minutes and I was a sweaty mess by the end. 

_____________________________________________________________

I plan to post Cameryn’s week 11 update today, a recipe tomorrow and then the workout of the week on Friday.  I took a week off because to be frank I just didn’t have the time or feel like blogging.  But, my creative juices are flowing again so I’ll be back to my daily posts!  Yay!  Smile

See you guys tomorrow with a recipe and later today with a baby update!

Happy wife, equals happy life! haha my bf says that all the time. That mexican bowl looks really good… and one of these days Im going to have to try your breakfast egg sandwich… I definitely think more protein at breakfast would start my day better.

      I had plans lose it quicker, but my body didn’t respond. It was annoying, but I am so happy I finally lost that last pound! I am positive you lose your weight super fast! I think working out during the pregnancy helped my body bunch back pretty quickly!

      I will definitely post more about them. We’ll probably have them again next week, but it is just brown rice, black beans, chicken breast, shredded pepper jack, diced tomatoes, avocado, onion and topped with salsa! They really are delicious and healthy! 🙂
