Try It Tuesday

Even though “swimsuit season” is over, I’m wanting to get back into shape (I’ve let myself slack off A LOT lately) and get back some of my strength that I’ve lost but I also needed a workout that wouldn’t take too long because, let’s face it, its tough to wake up early so a workout I could do in the short time Huff the Babe naps in the afternoon is ideal. I looked on my Pinterest board and decided to try out one of the many workouts I’ve pinned but never tried! I scoped out wheat I had and settled on this one:

I thought to myself, “Eh, this can’t be too hard, right? The website said it would take 30 minutes and I’m pretty fit. I can do this.”

BRUH. It was tough. By the time I made it to the burpees I was like, “Yeeeeaaahhh… not doing that.” Thankfully, it didn’t take thirty minutes to complete, it only took fifteen! But LAWD, it was a rough fifteen minutes! Check out my stats from my FitBit:

Now I’m sticking to the Jillian 30 Day Shred (I’m on Day 27!) and then I’ll kick it up a notch with another workout. But this is a great way to burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time!

Anytime I get on Pinterest to find some sort of fitness pin, I see all kinds of workouts that are designed to help people get into shape while watching their favorite shows/movies. Like this one:

So I started thinking: “What if there was a workout like this but for moms?” I couldn’t find one, so I thought up a few exercises to help you mommas out there add some fitness to your day!

Its been six weeks since I gave birth to Huff the Babe and I have been itchin’ to return to my workouts. I only have 10 pounds of the 30 I gained with Indy left to lose and I’m unbelievably ready for it to come of. However, since I’m nursing, my body is going to hold on to some fat stores making it dang near impossible to lose ANY weight.

But, I shall not fear! I know, in the meantime, I can work on strength training to build up muscle and endurance. But finding time for that? Now THAT’S dang near impossible.

Don’t believe me? This video perfectly sums up what its like to try and workout when kids are around:

Maybe I’ll get fit once the kids are away at college…
