Working Out 10 Years Later – 5 Things We Wish We Had Known

Why Are So Many Of Us Intimidated By Group Exercise? Here Is One Way We Have Found To Kick This Feeling.

Working out is supposed to be fun.

It should be rewarding.

Working out is supposed to be about you and no one else.

So why do we so often hear people say, “I need to get in a little better shape and then I will go to the gym”? How does that make any sense? Our opinion is that exercising in a crowd can be extremely intimidating.

Friday Fitness Tip – Find The Best Workout For You

I was walking out of the gym last weekend, and noticed a large group of people running suicide sprints in the basketball court area. Why were they doing this?  I will never know, but I know it was not right for me. It may be super effective, but I would hate every minute of it.

One of the most important things when working out is finding a workout that best fits you and your interests. My husband is someone who has really embraced this in his workout routine. He finds a lot of joy in just shooting the basketball. I’m still not sure how he considers this exercise, but that’s neither here nor there. Anyways, he hits the gym every Tuesday and Thursday morning and starts with a light jog, then does some minor weight lifting, and finishes off the hour with 10-15 min of shooting baskets. While this would not appeal to me in any way, my husband says that the addition of shooting the basketball helps him get up in the morning to get to the gym. It’s something he looks forward to.

Skinny Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese (SkinnyTaste)

The Skinny Baked Macaroni and Cheese meal is so delicious that it even fooled our husbands because they didn’t know  it was “skinny”! It is so easy to make, and can be frozen for another meal! We love make-ahead and freezer friendly meals, mainly because it takes some of the stress out of our night by trying to come up with a family friendly meal. We highly recommend this meal for you and your family.

Who Says Donuts Aren’t Healthy Kid Snacks? {Guest Post}

Sometimes it feels like one of the most difficult jobs of motherhood is actually feeding the little boogers. What was once their favorite food now absolutely disgusts them, they’re always hungry but nothing ever sounds good, and introducing healthy foods is sometimes a nightmare (like.. the fact that we’re feeding them a vegetable is the absolute meanest thing in the world, right?)

While I wish I could sit here and tell you that I always have the time (and patience!) to make elaborate meals for my own kiddo, I’d be lying. Between running a business, a household, and chauffeuring our son to multiple baseball games and practices and every other sort of activity in between, I just don’t have time for something super time intensive. BUT. I promise you that teaching our kids healthy habits and ensuring they are getting a balanced, nutritious diet on the regular is still possible.

Is Disney World The BEST Walking Workout?

Yes, I am back at Disney 6 months after I went in December. I just can’t get enough. And to make it relevant… my steps game gets really amped up! Do you exercise while on vacation? Does walking a million steps count?

My mom is a Disney Nazi. She is literally obsessed with being on schedule and seeing everything possible.  As soon as the plane touches down in Orlando, my anxiety starts that we are going to miss the Magical Express, then our first FastPass, and we won’t be able to get it back. You can’t just get those back you know!
