I’ve been asked a couple of times recently if I’m still planning on posting my workouts here on the blog.
While there was certainly a time wayyyy back in the day where my workouts were a regular occurrence on here, things have changed quite a bit since then. There are so many other blogs out there that post workouts, and they do it well. So I’ve realized that it’s just not really my ‘thing’ anymore, and that’s cool!
Even though I’m not always talking about it, fitness will always be a priority of mine. I just feel all around better when I keep active! But even though it’s still a priority, it has definitely slipped a few spots on the list.
And that’s okay! These days, I aim to get 4 workouts in per week, which are usually no more than 40 minutes long. Sometimes I hit that goal, sometimes I don’t. I’m sure things will get easier as Alex gets older and has a more predictable schedule, because I will forever and always be an early morning workout kinda gal. But since I never know what kind of sleep I’m going to get these days, I’m not even attempting the 5:30am alarm for a workout…I’m lucky if I can get up to an alarm without snoozing for an hour as it is right now!
So even though workouts aren’t at the top of my priority list right now, I still try to do what I can, when I can, with what I have. And since I don’t have any gym memberships or anything like that, you guys know I love doing my workouts at home. I’ve been doing a few of the Beachbody workouts I have (even though coaching wasn’t my thing), but I’ve also recently found a few different workout videos on YouTube that have been great, so I wanted to share them with you guys.
This one leaves a killerrrrr booty burn!
This was a fun one that left more more sore than I expected the next day!

I first shared my love for Jessica Smith TV workouts back when I was pregnant in my second trimester (<—that’s a GREAT list of workout videos, FYI!) but just recently discovered this workout. It works up quite a sweat!
30-Minute Strength Training for Women via Jessica Smith TV
This workout is awesome because she really encourages you to lift heavy. I have about 18lb dumbbells (they’re Jay’s and they’re ones that have removable plates so I think that’s about what the total weight is) that I use for some of the moves in this workout
Superset Sculpt – 40 Minute Strength Training Fat Burning via Jessica Smith TV
This is another one that really focuses on strength training, which is my absolute favorite. Give me a workout with weights over cardio ANY day!
So there’s a look at some of the workouts I’ve been doing lately! What about you guys? What workouts are YOU loving?!
