I love making fitness a part of my every day routine.  It keeps me healthy, mostly happy,  and motivated in all aspects of life. So today I wanted to share some of my workout and health goals.

— I try to workout at least 4-5 times a week for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on what class I take.  I’m all about waking up and getting my workout done first thing in the morning.  I can really notice a difference after my morning workouts, it helps me feel refreshed and motivated to take on the day with my girls!  Plus, did I mention that the gym I go to has an amazing child center!  I think it’s important to incorporate both weight training and cardio in your exercise routine.

My daily workout routine:

Monday- C9- Tabata style training with both cardio and weights

Tuesday– Pilates followed by a 3-mile run

Wednesday– TCX (total conditioning extreme) an intense full body workout that incorporates weight and cardio training in a 3-part progression.

Thursday- Cycle or Barbell (depends on if I’m needing more weights or more cardio)

Friday– CRT (circuit resistance training) again, another combo cardio/weights class

Saturday & Sunday – I think my gym is closed on the weekends. ?? Joking, but I do try to enjoy my weekends with my family, and honestly I get a pretty good workout running around with my girls! ????

— I drink a lot of water throughout the day.  I can always tell when I haven’t had 50 to 75 ounces of water a day.  What has really helped me hit this goal is infusing fruit in my water.  I got this water bottle from Anthropologie and I LOVE it!  I also use it for making fruit tea as well.  My favorite is lemon and strawberry water.  It’s so good for your mind, body and skin!

— You can work it out all day every day, but if you don’t eat healthy…you truly won’t reach your full potential.  Think greens and lean proteins.  I love eating healthy fats like avocados, nuts and fish.  I usually grab a protein smoothie after my workout in the morning.  I also have been loving veggie burgers with an egg, tomato, jalapeño, arugula and hot sauce.  One of my all time favorites!

Like I mentioned before, if you work hard you get to play hard too!  On the weekends, I let myself eat and drink and be merry!
