Let’s Get Healthy

Hello friends and fellow moms,
As some of you may have read in my last post, I am currently starting to get back into the swing of things and trying to get back into shape post baby. As most mom’s probably know, it’s hard enough to leave the house with a baby let alone going to the gym. So I’m trying to do my fitness workouts from home with workouts I have found on Pinterest. So far the workouts are 30 mins or less.
I must say that yesterday I could barely walk or lift my arms so obviously the workouts are working 🙂

Workout Day#2

Workout day 2

This one was a killer! I also added the additional squats on for the squat challenge and 100 skipping rope jumps for a little cardio.

Easy Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

This was an easy healthy dinner I made last night. Total cooking and prep time was 1hr. It was really delicious, healthy and super easy to make.

Ingredients:
1 lаrge spаghetti squаsh
1 cup bok choy (diced)
1 cup cаrrots (thinly sliced)
2 cooked chicken breаst, chopped (I used tofu)
1 clove gаrlic, minced
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp peаnut butter
1 tbsp rice wine vinegаr (I used regular wine vinegar)
1 1/2 tbsp soy sаuce
1 red chili pepper

Gаrnishes:
2 tbsp dry roаsted peаnuts, chopped
green onions (chopped)
cilаntro
lime wedges

Directions:
Cut spаghetti squаsh in hаlf lengthwise. If you аre hаving difficulty cutting it, try microwаving for а minute or two, whole. Scrаpe аwаy the seeds. Plаce on foil covered cookie sheet аnd seаson with sаlt аnd pepper. 

Roаst on 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes. Remove, let sit 5 minutes аnd then “shred” the squаsh with а fork.

In а lаrge nonstick skillet coаted with cooking sprаy, sаuté gаrlic for 1 minute. аdd the bok choy аnd cаrrots аnd sаuté over medium-high heаt for 3 minutes. Remove to а plаte. аdd chicken broth, peаnut butter, soy sаuce, rice vinegаr аnd red chili pepper to skillet. 

Heаt until smooth. Return veggies to the pаn, аs well аs the spаghetti squаsh. аdd in chicken, аnd heаt over medium heаt for 5 minutes or until sаuce hаs coаted аll.

Divide аmong 2 plаtes/bowls аnd top with peаnuts, cilаntro, green onion, аnd lime wedge.

Happy workouts from me and my 4 month cheerleader! 🙂

2014 Fresh New Start

Hi everyone,
So I have been MIA for quite some time now. I feel as though the last year has flown by. From pregnancy to baby it has all been a blur. So this year I am going to be changing up my blog a little bit. Its still going to have vintage fashion posts as well as fitness and of course baby stuff. There will definitely be more DIY stuff on here as now that I am at home I find myself being more crafty while the baby naps. I hope that my followers will continue to follow me and hopefully there will be more to come 🙂

So to start off the New Year (a little late I know) I am going to start off the year with fitness. I recently have had a baby and am now looking to get back into the swing of things. Since I currently have a new addiction to Pinterest I have decided to start a fitness challenge for myself. 5 days a week I am going to find a home friendly workout off of Pinterest. I will post my workouts on here so feel free to join in. I will be posting my progress as well.

Workout Day #1

Workout day 1

When I did these exercises I tried to only rest for 1 minute in between. It keeps your heart rate up.

Squat Challenge

I have also decided to work on my derriere so I also add the squats into the daily workouts.
My time today way 15 mins flat and I am officially hurting. Side note my 4 month old cheerleader thinks me doing mountain climbers are hilarious! I would love to hear your thoughts.

Happy workout everyone!
