Thigh Busting Stroller Workout

IMG_9971

I’m loving this weather lately and it’s no surprise that I’m taking as many of my workouts as I can outside. Nothing beats a little fitness fun in the sun!

This awesome thigh-busting workout can be done anywhere, including at the gym, the local park or even in your living room. No baby stroller needed either…just grab a hold of the nearest park bench or a sturdy chair for balance.

Do 12-15 reps of each move (1-4) once through. That equals one set. Complete 3-5 sets depending on level of fitness.  Continue reading “Thigh Busting Stroller Workout”

I’ve never been much of an elliptical, stationary bike or even treadmill kind of a girl. However, when you think outside of the box a little you can actually find some pretty fun ways to amp up your heart rate. Now that the weather is FINALLY getting a little nicer here in New England, being able to take my workouts outside is a happy change. Being able to also incorporate my daughter into my workouts is not only fun but an added challenge. These ladder drills, although demonstrated using a grid taped out onto the floor, can be done in a similar manner OR you can skip the grid and do these down the sidewalk!  It’s such a fun way to get some fresh air and some cardio in at the same time.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Zucchini Smoothie and my current pregnancy favs!

Pregnant or not activewear is my go to. Who doesn’t love a comfy pair of leggings that not only hug your curves but move with you for the ultimate in comfiness? One of my favorite brands that I just can’t get enough of is Climawear. This company not only has been my top choice prior to pregnancy but has also worked with me through every stage of it…it’s like these pieces just get it and every bump and additional curve that pop up. Ha! Continue reading “Chocolate Peanut Butter Zucchini Smoothie and my current pregnancy favs!”
