Hey, hey! Quinn and I had a fabulous, quickie workout this morning, so I just wanted to share it with all of you nice people. I did it with the jogging stroller, but you could easily do it without too. The workout only includes 3 exercises (running, walking lunges, plyo squats), all of which don’t require any equipment, so you can do this workout just about anywhere. FYI: It took us about 16 minutes to…

This post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of Reebok as part of the Body After Baby series. Wow! That was a quick month! I can’t believe I am already writing this next Body After Baby post, and my little dude is 3 months old. Where does the time go? It was a whirlwind four weeks for sure, so here’s a recap of how I am progressing with my weight loss and fitness goals….

Good morning! Q and I survived our first two days home alone! Haha! No major meltdowns and we even went on a couple of adventures! Tuesday After saying goodbye to Mal, Q and I headed out around the neighborhood for a 35-minute power walk. I actually planned to run with him in the jogging stroller, but walking just seemed more appealing. Maybe I wasn’t quite awake yet, but I assume it was probably the heat….

This post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of Reebok as part of the Body After Baby series.  At one point or another, most of us will need to take time off from exercise. Whether it’s an injury, illness, or pregnancy, it’s pretty common that something will sideline you from working out. And, of course, it’s okay””more than okay””to take time off and take care of yourself. But, when it’s time to make your grand comeback to…

This post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of Reebok. I can’t believe it’s been 8 weeks since I gave birth to Quinn. Crazy, right? In those 8 weeks, my body has undergone so many changes””more than I could ever imagine. Being 41 weeks pregnant, I thought I would be ALL about losing the baby weight as quickly as possible, but, truthfully, weight loss hasn’t been my main focus during these past couple of…

Hello, hello! Just popping in to share some of my eats from today and my new post on Health.com! Breakfast I had an egg-cellent breakfast this morning: Egg, bacon, cheese, and kale in a pita pocket with a glass of homemade Marylou’s Hawaiian Chocolate Nut with vanilla almond milk ice cubes. It was so good. You will definitely see a repeat of this breakfast in the future! After breakfast, I hung out with Q and waited for Mal…

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Target® C9 through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Target® C9, all opinions are my own. I’m back at it on the workout front! Well, sort of. I was really itching to start exercising again, but I don’t have an appointment with my doctor until 6 weeks postpartum, so I gave her a call last week to see if I could…

I’ve received a lot of questions over the past several months about what I wore to work out, so I thought I’d write a post about the exercise gear that got me through my pregnancy. I ended up buying a few key pieces, but I really did my best not to spend too much money on workout clothes because I knew I would probably only wear them while I was pregnant. That said, here’s a summary of my…

I am so excited to be guest posting today on Carrots ”˜N’ Cake for Tina. My name is Tamara and I am a wife to a firefighter, mommy to an almost two year old with another on the way in few weeks, and a personal trainer/yoga instructor. I started my blog The Workout Mama last year and was looking for a way to record family memories and to share fitness and health tips with other…

Hello! Just wanted to share some of my very favorite items (the best of the best) from my pregnancy! {from top left} Moving Comfort Maia Bra: My boobs grew like crazy during my pregnancy, so I needed sports bras that were really supportive to keep up with me during CrossFit and running. The Maia bra was my go-to. Rainbow Light Prenatal One Vitamins: I took these prenatal vitamins before I got pregnant and all through my…

Week 38 marked the end of my “regular” workouts. I stopped CrossFit and will likely just take long walks with Murphy and maybe do some easy basement workouts until Baby H. arrives. I’m large and in charge and my usual exercise routine is just too much, and I’m more than happy to give my body a break before labor. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts! Sunday: Off Monday: 45-minute walk with Mal…

Last night, I had my final CrossFit class until after Baby H. arrives. It was definitely bittersweet. Obviously, I need to give my body a break and rest up for labor, but, man, it was sad saying goodbye to my favorite workout and my favorite people. As Greg Glassman (the founder of CrossFit) once said, “Woodstock wasn’t just about the music.” I will miss you, CrossFit 781, but I will be back! I asked my friend…

Things are definitely starting to come to an end with regard to my regular workouts. My body is telling me to take it down a notch and my usual activities just make me so tired nowadays. I still managed to get in a few good workouts this week, but, overall, I didn’t really have the drive or energy to really push myself. Lifting heavy things at CrossFit, for instance, just seemed so exhausting, so I scaled…

Hi, guys! Just popping in to share a new recipe for a super easy, throw-together Creamsicle Smoothie.

I hope you love it as much as I do! Ingredients: 1 cup frozen peaches 1/2 cup orange juice 3/4 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk (or other vanilla-flavored milk) Directions: Combine…
