Hey, mom life. Always on the go. Always putting ourselves last place, right? It’s not always easy to keep self care a priority, especially when you have several little ones! I’ve come to a place where I feel like I’ve lost the “mom guilt” and can take time for myself, because I know for a fact that it makes me a better person. A better wife. A better mom. My favorite way to spend time on myself is a good workout. I’ve had to get a bit creative with when, where and how I get a workout in, but I get it in. It makes me feel better immediately, but also has a lasting effect on my mood and my body. I make better food choices when I workout regularly, too.
The hardest time to make good food choices, is when I’m on the go. The carpool line, errands and making food for the kids all keep me from spending the time I should on great food for myself. Lorissa’s Kitchen makes delicious snacks using high quality meats like 100% grass-fed beef and chicken raised without antibiotics. With 3 flavors, Korean Barbecue Beef Steak Strips, Ginger Teriyaki Chicken Cuts and Original Beef Steak Strips, there’s something for everyone to love! They’re great to grab as I run out the door and ensure I get a good source of protein, even when I just have time to snack. I also have several bags packed in my beach bag right now!

One of the trainers at my gym made this workout and it was one of my favorite ones ever! It hits basically all your muscles, throws in some good cardio and is all around efficient. Best of all, it can be done with little ones all around you.
At Home Bootcamp
25 kettlebell squats (can use a dumbbell)
3 stair runs with weights
20 weighted lunges
40 duck walk steps (stand in an open leg squat position and take your steps, never standing up)
20 heavy bag flips (if you don’t have one of these, you can skip this and do more weighted squats!)
20 squat + dumbbell press (squat down with the hand weights just above your shoulders. As you stand, press your arms all the way up.)
50 weighted calf raises
0.1 mile sprint
repeat 4 times, or about 45 minutes
You will sure get your blood flowing and feel so good after this at home bootcamp! I know it’s not the easiest to take time for yourself, but it’s so important that we care for the care giver!
