Hi, friends! I’m just popping in to share some photos from the last couple of days. Our little family is trying to soak up our final days of summer together, so we purposely planned some low-key days this week because the season will be over before we know it. Doesn’t it feel like July 4th was just the other day? It was a whirlwind summer for sure. Anyway, here we go! This morning: Quinn checking out the bagel options while…

As a Stonyfield blogger ambassador, I was compensated for writing this post as part of my partnership with the brand. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Go Team Stonyfield! This month’s post theme is “running with family,” so I wanted to share some of my favorite stroller workouts. Now that the weather has finally started to warm up, Quinn and I frequently enjoy stroller outings together. We both love being outside– fresh…

Hello and happy NEW YEAR, my friends! I am so glad it’s 2015 because I’m looking forward to so much this year… Quinn growing, walking, and talking, traveling (oh, how I’ve missed it), running the Boston Marathon, summer (yep, just plain old summer), and so much more! Hello, 2015! Since a lot of us (myself included) are kicking off the new year with our health and wellness in mind, I thought I would share a new favorite…

Hi, friends! How’s your Monday going so far? Quinn is a napping machine today (who is this kid? I think Mimi has magical powers), so I had some extra time to create a pin-able workout, order our holiday cards, start dinner, and write this blog post. Hooray for naps! So, this workout”¦ I am still sore from it, and I did it LAST Wednesday at CrossFit. Holy cow. It totally smoked my arms. The second set of push-ups, which…

This post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of Reebok as part of the Body After Baby series. Ooooooh, boy. This workout is definitely a burner””meaning that it will smoke your lungs and muscles. It’s a challenging one for sure! For equipment, I used a 15-pound slamball, but if you don’t have one, you can use a medicine ball, dumbbell, or any sort of weighted bar instead. It took me close to 7 minutes…

Good morning, friends! So, this workout was a fun one! It was fast and furious and over before I knew it. Love that. As for the name, I joked to Mal that all of the granola I’ve eaten lately “fueled” me through it. Haha! For this workout, you need a barbell (I used 65 pounds), a kettlebell (I used 45 pounds), somewhere to run, and a timer. The movements: Power Cleans Push Presses Kettlebell Swings Running…

My CrossFit box did “Dirty Diana” a few weeks ago, and I saved it as a “must do” workout for at home. I finally had a chance to do it this past weekend, and it was definitely a lung-smoker! For this workout, you only need a kettlebell, timer, and some space to run (outside or on a treadmill). I also used a yoga mat, but only because I didn’t want to scrape up my knees on…

Hi, friends! I did an awesome driveway WOD over the weekend, so I wanted to share it with you guys. To do this workout, you only need two pieces of equipment (plate + dumbbell) and a little bit of space. (You could also sub the dumbbell for the plate for the walking lunges.) I brought the necessary equipment outside, played some tunes, and then got to work while my favorite guys kept me company in the driveway. I had…

Hi, guys! Here’s the workout that I mentioned the other day. It was a fun one and perfect for this pregnant lady, who definitely appreciated the rest between intervals! Thank goodness for EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute) workouts! The exercises, equipment, and weights that I used: Ball slams ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Ball squats (air squats holding the slam ball) ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Russian Kettlebell Swings ””> Kettlebell @…

Good morning! Happy Friday! I have a delicious breakfast and a full-body, butt-kicking workout for you this morning! A delicious breakfast: Greek yogurt mixed with defrosted frozen blueberries, sliced almonds, and French toast granola from Nature Box and an iced decaf almond latte. A full-body, butt-kicking workout: Knock ”˜Em Down, Build ”˜Em Up Workout. One of many basement workouts to come! For this workout, the only equipment you need is a set of medium-to-light weight…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Breakfast Yesterday morning started with an especially delicious breakfast. I love it when meals come out so much better than expected! I had two waffles with melt-y almond butter spread in between and warm, sweet cinnamon apples on top. So yum! To make the apples, I just chopped up a couple, placed them in a microwave-safe bowl, drizzled honey and sprinkled cinnamon on top, and then nuked them for 90…

Good morning! Guess what day it is!? [source] Happy Hump Day!!! Of course, Mal and I started our day by quoting the “Happy as a Camel on Hump Day” commercial. The “Mike, Mike, Mike”¦” part is my favorite, which, obviously, translated to “Mal, Mal, Mal”¦ what day is it, Mal?” Haha! Ok, we’re five years old. So, I ran 10 miles yesterday! Yay! (I still get excited about long runs in the double digits!) I…

Good morning!! How about a full body workout to start your Wednesday off on the right foot? I actually did this 45-minute workout at the gym on Friday afternoon, but I loved it so much, I just had to share it on CNC. I hope you guys like it too! It’s quick and dirty! For this workout, you’ll need two different cardio machines. I used the elliptical and the treadmill, but you could substitute a…

Hi, guys! After breakfast yesterday morning, I got my sweat on with this at-home chipper! I forgot to time myself, but this workout took me awhile to finish (maybe 20 minutes?) and it left me a tired, sweaty mess. I took multiple breaks during it to catch my breath and let my muscles recover. This one is definitely a butt-kicker! Lunch After my at-home WOD, I showered up and then reheated some Loaded Baked Potato…
