A few months ago, my husband and I decided to make a few healthy lifestyle changes. We are both turning 40 this year and while I don’t feel that 40 is that old, I do feel that it’s the age when you start to realize that you aren’t getting any younger. We decided that we wanted to take control of our health, by making healthier choices. Today I want to tell you all about it and share what I eat in a week, what my exercise routine looks like, and how I’ve been able to maintain this healthy lifestyle for the last few months!Read more

The thing that I really like about Aaptiv, is that you can workout anywhere and you don’t have to commit yourself to a long stretch of time. For me, the weekends are the best time for me to get a nice long workout in. That’s when I go for my walks and do the stroller workouts, but during the week, I’m crunched for time. I found that it was easy to pick out a quick 8-minute workout right after Jack’s bath time while he was playing. I liked how all the workouts that I tried were all quick and effective. I could feel a nice burn after only an 8-10 minute routine.
Whether you are an expecting mom looking to stay fit through your pregnancy, a working mom with no time for a workout schedule or maybe you are just someone trying to get a healthy routine started, I would highly recommend looking into what Aaptiv has to offer. You can download the app at the App Store or Google Play and start making changes today!
I’ve always been a very petite person and it never took me much to stay in shape, but things change after you have a baby. I think it’s important to set realistic goals for yourself. Remember that you just carried a 6 plus pound human in you. It takes 9 months to grow a baby, so it will take time to shed that baby weight. Don’t expect it to happen overnight. My goal is to flatten out my belly and get some of my ab muscles back that I used to have.
Workout Apps- There is literally an app for everything. There are lots of different apps out there that will help you diet and help you get on a fitness plan. I’ve always used Map My Run to track the distance I go on my walks and it will also tell you how many calories you burned. Since I’m focusing on my core, I recently downloaded an app called Abs & Core Sworkit. It is basically like having your own personal trainer. If you’re looking to count your calories, my favorite app for that is My Fitness Pal. Find an app that works for you and use it. The great thing is that most apps are free, so you can try one out and if you don’t like it, just delete it and find another.
