Working out & Being fit

January 7th


So I forgot to post my workout from the 5th. It wasn’t as “intense” as the one I did on the 4th, cause I’m outta shape & sore.

I did 20 of each of the following, so basically two circuits.

  • Squats,
  • Donkey Kick (back and side),
  • dips (I used the bathtub edge as a sturdy place),
  • stretch kicks (front, back and side)
  • jumping jacks.
  • Afterwards I stretched for about 10 minutes.

I didn’t work out on Wednesday. Between work and being super duper sore, I decided to pass.

Today I woke up feeling pretty good, so I increased my numbers and what  exercises I was doing.

Cycle one:

  • 10 squats
  • 10 donkey kicks (back and side)
  • 10 push ups
  • 10 dips
  • 10 jumping jacks
  • 10 stretch kicks (front, back, side)
  • count of 20 bicycles

I repeated this cycle 4 times. Followed by 10 minutes of “stretching”.. Which mostly consisted of Hendrix wrestling me while I sat on the ground.

the whole thing only took about 20/30 minutes. Did have to pause game so I could take my son to the bathroom, he’s potty training!

Happy Thursday 🙂


Family life, Working out & Being fit

2016 // No More Excuses

working out while being a full time mommy and part time server can be challenging. This year I’m not going to let the challenge of working out be an excuse not too.


Day 1 : Jan 4

Current weight 151.4 // goal a strong, toned 130-135

At home work out :

50 squats // 50 sit ups // 50 donkey kicks (each side)

20 push-ups ( I’ll have to do more when the kid sleeps. He wanted to sit on me, and my strength isn’t there yet)

30 leg lifts (laying flat on my back, throw downs w/o the partner)

15 minutes of stretching!

Goal is to repeat this work out twice a day and increase my numbers.
