Fitness & Healthy Living [Update!]

The last time I posted on my health and fitness routine was in THIS blog post. That was over a year ago! 

I’ve come a long way since then.20170202_131140I have posted some blogs on Barre and Tabata – which I still both do. But I’ve started to incorporate more strength training and cardio on my own time (or finding classes here and there to take).

I had to buy new sneakers since my Asics were dying on me. I got these Everlast ones that were on sale. I absolutely love them for strength training!20170306_074344I have the say the combination of Pure Barre and Tabata has been amazing for my body. I haven’t felt this strong (and toned) since I did bodybuilding pre-baby in 2014. 20170317_080827I can even do tricep push-ups; something I was never able to do. I try to do barre 3-4 times a week. I teach 3 Barre classes a week and try to take 2-3 Pure Barre classes on my own.

Here’s what my current fitness routine looks like during the week:

  • Monday: Barre Class (Lower Body & Core)
  • Tuesday: Rest Day
  • Wednesday: Barre & Tabata Class
  • Thursday: Barre Class
  • Friday: Tabata/ Strength Training
  • Saturday: Cardio Barre
  • Sunday: Active Rest Day

I also am updating the top 15 items I try to stock in my fridge/ pantry (for Samantha & I). You can check out my favorites from from last year HERE (very slight change).

  1. Instant Plain Oatmeal Packets (for the added iron for my anemic self)
  2. Teddy’s Natural Peanut Butter
  3. Chia or Flax Seeds (whichever was on sale)
  4. Trail Mix (from WholeFoods Bulk area)
  5. Fresh/Frozen Fruits and Veggies
  6. Milk (whole dairy plus soy or almond)
  7. Protein Bars (I try to have a few Quest bars on hand)
  8. Greek Yogurt (store brand or Stonyfield)
  9. String Cheese or Babybel Light
  10. Gluten-Free Pretzels
  11. Harvest Snap Pea Crisps
  12. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries (Sam loves them!)
  13. Boca Veggie Burgers
  14. Dark Chocolate (Usually Ghirardelli 72%)
  15. Eggs

Is every week perfect? Absolutely not. 20170225_151313Just like I mentioned over a year ago, things are going to come up or happen, especially with a toddler. But I’ve learned to focus on eating more; if I can’t get to the gym, I make sure my eating is on point. I also focus less on the scale. 20170302_155503I weight myself about once a month (last time I was 153lbs) now and try to just go based off of my clothes. I like the size that I am at so I know if my clothes are starting to feel snug, I have to kick it up a notch. 😉

Question: What does YOUR fitness routine look like?
