Getting My Sweat On {Recent Workouts}

Hi, guys!

I’m happy to report that I am feeling pretty darn good on the fitness front! I had some really awesome workouts over the past two weeks, and, for the most part, I feel like my old self again. And I totally took advantage of every opportunity to get my butt in gear since Mal is back to school this week, and I won’t have the same freedom to work out whenever I want. Things are changing around here!

  1. It’s awesome that you and Mal were able to spend the summer together, bonding with your little guy and figuring out parenthood together! I’m hoping to have a baby while my husband is at his current job because they are incredibly supportive of new families. They offer paternity leave in addition to maternity leave. As they should, right?!

  2. AHHH that posted too early – once you figure out how to squeeze in a workout let me know! I still haven’t figured that out… Besides walking with William, but now itz even harder being back at work!

  3. You’ve been busy!!! Such a great balanced mix of strength, high intensity and you’re getting in a nice amount of running too! Don’t know how you manage it with the stroller!!! So tough!

  4. What a great mix of workouts! What a great way to not get bored or feel like you are stuck in a rut! I love that you are making time to get out (stroller time) and hang out with other moms while being active! So inspiring 🙂 Makes it hard for me to justify skipping a workout (no babies here!). Thanks for sharing and keep up the great workouts!!

  5. Hi Tina! Was wondering what sneaker you would recommend for crossfit? I have been told the nanos. Is there a version you would recommend?
