After many requests, I will be starting a Weekly Workout Recap post for you each Monday so you can get a better idea of what my routine looks like on a regular basis.
For me, my fitness time is about stress relief, alone time, and finding clarity + inspiration.
In this season of parenting a very high-needs 4-year-old plus an almost-3-year old, I find myself needing to take regular breaks throughout the day in order to regroup and have the mental and physical energy I need to finish out the day with them.
My fitness time is one of the many ways I regroup and empower myself each day.
You will find a variety of movement in my weekly routines ranging from hiking, walks to the park, trail runs, strength training, paddle boarding, long walks, Crossfit workouts and more.
I try to get outdoors as much as possible for my workouts as I find that to be the ultimate stress relief + where I draw much of my inspiration for my business from!
For strength days, I either use my home gym or go to the YMCA where I get 2 hours of free childcare with our membership. I usually spend about 30 minutes on a workout and then use the rest of the time for working if I'm there.
I hope you find these weekly posts inspiring and helpful for your own healthy living journey. Feel free to add your comments and questions below.
And P.S...You can find almost all of the movements I list on my youtube channel. I primarily use a barbell and kettlebell for weight and a pullup bar, bench, plyometic box and wall ball for the remainder of my movements.
