My workout routine is such an important part of my life! It feels right and genuine to write a blog post about it. There are so many benefits to regular exercise. After I had my third child I struggled with anxiety. Working out has helped me so much in this area. It also helps me in the colder months because I get the “winter blues” for sure. It is 30 minutes to an hour of “me” time where I can clear my head and reset myself. That makes me a better mom. I joke and say that I’m not nice if I don’t work out. That might be a stretch, but I’m certainly happier when I do!
I spend a lot of time in active wear. I love wearing fun colors and prints to keep it fresh and interesting. I especially love the mesh detail on this top and the beautiful teal color. And the price tag is even better!
Disclaimer: I am NOT a fitness expert by any means. I am simply sharing my personal workout regimen. This is what works for ME. Consult your physician before you start a new exercise program.
I work out four times a week. I do an upper and lower body workout with a personal trainer and go to group boot camp the other two days. I don’t do cardio because honestly it bores me to tears. I do short bursts of cardio in my workouts such as a minute of mountain climbers, burpees, short runs, etc.
Here are examples of my personal training sessions. I love that my trainer mixes up my workouts and keeps it interesting. I usually do 3 sets of 15 of each exercise and 1 minute if it’s a timed exercise.

As far as eating goes, my philosophy is simple: I try not to overeat and everything in moderation. I don’t eliminate entire food groups and I try to eat small portions throughout the day. Again, I am not an expert in this department either, but this is what has worked for me over the years.
Thanks so much for letting me share one of my passions with you! If you are bored or struggling with your workouts, I hope this might give you some inspiration and fresh ideas! Exercise is always more fun with friends too. Grab a buddy and hit the gym!
