I don’t know about you, but in my life, carpet and kids typically should not co-exist.
Maybe your kids always sit at the table to eat, maybe your toddler never wanders around the house with a green smoothie they managed to pull off the counter or a popsicle they snatched out of the freezer, or maybe your kids know it’s not a good idea to chase after their siblings while carrying a bowl full of cereal and milk.
Summer is right around the corner! Are you ready to don a bathing suit? If the answer is yes, then pat yourself on the back, because you are awesome! If the answer is no, don’t worry, you’re in good company.
Back when I used to think I knew what it meant to be busy, (balancing job, boyfriend, friends, shopping, and fun) I was actually a personal trainer. I loved working out and loved fitness. I still do, but now as a wife, mother of 3, business owner (Planted Juice), and laugh seeker (Laughing Moms), I can’t even keep my house in order, let alone my body.
Fortunately, (I suppose) due to food allergies I eat pretty well, so my weight is within a healthy range. Unfortunately, my muscles left this body for fitter pastures long ago. I’m pretty sure my 5 year old is already stronger than me. In my defense, she is a quarter Samoan, and my husband is a freakishly strong man who passed on his strong genes.
So, as I sat and planned a calisthenic comeback, inspiration struck! I grabbed my computer and did some keystroke reps, getting my fingers in the shape of their lives. “New Lifestyle” was the result of this workout. It’s a parody of “Style” by Taylor Swift, and it would help me laugh my way to flatter abs. Come get your workout in with me! For best results, repeat 5x/week for 25 minutes minimum.
