Bedtime relaxing stretch routine

When I was cleared to work out after Liv’ s birth, I couldn’t wait to get back into sweaty interval training. Finding my personal max and soaked in sweat sounded like a dream to me. After P’s birth, I couldn’t wait to Orangetheory and Spin again. (Hopefully I’ll be back at OTF in the new few weeks as my hand gets stronger!)

After my recent hiatus, I had one thing on my mind: yoga.

Yogaaaaaaa.

I was craving a fiercely heated room, finding my way into familiar poses, and soaking it all in during savasana. I still haven’t been able to take a class -push-up and plank feel great but I’m not quite ready for a full practice- but I’ve been incorporating bits of yoga into my daily life. Maybe it’s a reminder to stay in the present moment (instead of rushing through the “what-ifs” in my brain), or a few deep breaths to center myself. It might be a quick flow with Liv (she’s a big yoga fan), or a simple stretching routine before bed.

10 workouts you can do in 10 minutes

(not including warmup/cooldown time, mm k?) This is for all of my 10-minute workout warriors out there.   Back in the day, if I only had 10 minutes to sneak in a workout, that usually meant my workout was canceled.  I didn’t know that there’s a lot you can accomplish in 10 short minutes, and […]

How to cook salmon: 10 different ways

Hey hey hey! How’s the day going? Thank you so much all of the sweet wishes about my nerve repair surgery. Everything went well and I’m on the mends! I took the day off yesterday to rest a bit but am back in the swing of things now. I also have a sweet splint on […]

How much cardio is too much?

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?? Hope the start of your week is going well. We’re having an amazing time in Tucson, especially since we don’t have a lot of official plans. We’ve hit up the pool, got to meet up with some friends Monday night, and last night, we had an incredible dinner at […]

Buff bride workout

Hi friends! how’s the morning going? Yesterday was a DAY. Of course we were sending last minute info to our accountant for taxes (#organized) and the SUV’s service light came on. The Pilot switched the carseats out to our other car, took the SUV to the dealership, and after they *fixed it*, it stalled and […]

things I didn’t know about marriage

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. I’m off to an appointment, and then we’re going to head to the zoo later today.  Yesterday, we went down to Newport to watch the waves, and walk around for a little while. Check out the latest OB sand sculpture: Not bad so far, right? My sand […]

how to take a break from working out, without going crazy

Does anyone know the answer to this? Please kindly respond in the comments below. The end. Just kidding. But not really. 😉 Taking a break from the gym, especially when you’re finally feeling good/better and want to move, IS HARD. It’s hard when you have a baby and would love the endorphins and time for […]

10 ways to deadlift

This made me laugh way harder than it should have. Ok, currently I don’t either. 😉 (You know, that whole “6 weeks of rest” thing.) But we’re in unusual circumstances right now, and usually, I LOVE lifting. Like in a weird way. One of my all-time favorite exercises: the good ol’ deadlift. I have to […]

things that have helped me streamline the sugar

Hi friends! It’s ALMOST THE WEEKEND. This week is flying by, and I have no problem at all with that. I’m looking forward to the weekend ahead with plans with friends and some birthday celebrations.  I also promised Liv that we’d hit up the beach this afternoon since the weather has been dreamy. Happy St. […]

Spring clean your fitness routine

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I am still recovering from returning from Vegas + Daylight Savings. Not a good combo, but in Vegas, time doesn’t matter. 😉 It was totally worth it. Miss P thinks that waking up at 6:30, which is really 5:30, is pretty hilarious. We jumped right back into things on […]

What to do if you’ve never worked out?

Hi friends! Happy humpday! The weekend is in sight. 🙂 How’s the day going? It’s been a little crazy over here -I had to get blood drawn which took 18 years and our shower broke in the “on” position- but I had some time to pop in and say “hey” before heading out to teach […]

keeping the momentum going

Hi friends! How was your weekend? Hope it was wonderful and relaxing. Ours ended up being a bit of a whirlwind, but it ended up with madre here for the week, so all is good. As usual, Livi FREAKED when we picked her up at the airport. Her happy giggles make my heart so warm. […]
