This week has kind of been a weird, off week for me! I don't even know why - I have just been feeling off! So it was nice to get outside and get some fresh air with my boys. Working out and getting fresh air always make me feel better. I also got an excuse to wear my new work out clothes from Lululemon! I have always heard the craze about them and its all just so so true. Everything fits like a glove and the colors and strap designs are so unique and make it fun to get dressed to work out.
Living in the city we have been so much more active that I honestly don't feel bad if I don't make it to the gym! Between walking Chauncey a few times a day, random trips to markets, trips in the park, shopping, or whatever, the miles really add up! Somedays we walk (excluding cardio) 6 or 8 miles! The warmer it gets too, the more miles we add up because it's easy do cardio in the park. I love that we have the trail that goes around Jackie Onassis Reservoir so close to us! It is such a a beautiful view and I love just walking and thinking!
I also wanted to share with you this short video of my top 12 favorite ab workouts that you can do at home or at the gym! Honestly I always think it comes down to butt and abs! If those two things are in shape you can usually fool the rest into looking in shape too ;) plus I love the feeling of having tight abs - it makes me feel good and helps motivate me to want to stay in shape! The only thing you need is a mat, and a weight (or a baby or something heavy).
**Disclaimer - I am not a professional AT ALL! So I am not saying any of this is "correct form" I am sure some of you professionals will be thinking, she needs her back straighter!!! Or whatever. But this is just how I like to work out, thats all :) Watch the video HERE or scroll down!
Hope you all have a great day!
