My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 3 Update

We’re already 3 weeks into April – how crazy is that?!  The theme of this week’s post is SLOW + STEADY.  My postpartum fitness challenge is well underway, and it’s becoming more of a lifestyle change than anything.  As you may remember, my goal at the beginning of April was to move and sweat every single day of the month. I’m proud to say that …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 2 Update

You guys, I’ve started to feel like Oprah – always putting a picture of me as the cover photo. So, this time there’s an inspirational quote. BAM. So, I can’t ever remember a crazier week. Whoa. Deep breath. With appointments and meetings and a photo shoot and family visiting and motherhood and sleep and all of the things, it was hard to fit everything in.  Still, I …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 1 Update

One week into my April postpartum fitness challenge and I’m feeling pretty damn good! Tired, but good. 😉 This week was one of experimentation and trying to figure out how to fit in all the things, while also maintaining my sanity and trying to get as much sleep as possible. Overall, I did pretty well. While I changed the schedule a bit (no Beach Ball …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness

Happy Friday! I mentioned in Wednesday’s post that today I would be sharing some thoughts on postpartum fitness. So, here goes… I haven’t focused on fitness much on here, even though it’s always been a huge part of my life. I started this blog to help mamas find their style, even in the crazy chaos of motherhood. A huge part of style is confidence and feeling great …

L O V E for Athleisure

Pregnant or not, my absolute love and adoration for athleisure continues. I used to live in a world of power suits and skirts and tights and heels and meetings and stress. Now that my everyday life calls for more of a relaxed look (understatement of my life) and meetings have been replaced by chasing around a toddler tornado all day, I’m ALL about that athleisure life. I splurged …

Fitness Friday: Yoga With Adriene

Happy Friday! I’ve had some technical difficulties with the blog this week, so I apologize for the lack of posts. I think we are back up and running, so fingers crossed it stays that way! I’ve shared my love of yoga before (remember here?), and it’s safe to say that the love affair has continued. A couple of months ago my best friend introduced me to Yoga …

Fitness Friday: Working Out in Wisconsin

I’m bringing you a Fitness Friday from my home state, (the best place in the world) Wisconsin. It seems appropriate, since when here I can normally be found in workout clothes all day long. This shirt has been a staple of mine since I ordered it a couple of months ago. It’s perfect to throw on over your workout clothes on your way to the gym, and it’s now ON …

Fitness Friday: Yoga, you had me at Om.

I can still remember my first yoga class. I was in high school and went with my mom. The class was held in the basement of a hospital and the surroundings were anything but relaxing, but I can clearly remember feeling peaceful and at ease while I concentrated on learning poses I had never heard of before. It was like a fascinating new world. I was instantly hooked, and …

Fitness Friday: Post Baby Body & Tone It Up

As a stay at home mama, it is beyond difficult finding time to work out. It’s almost as difficult as getting your babe to ________ (fill in the blank: sleep through the night/take a bottle/nap/take a pacifier/stop eating the carpet). And going to the gym is practically impossible. Enter: Tone It Up. I remember watching the Bravo series, Toned Up, last January when I was newly pregnant and completely sick. …
