Why I No Longer Go to the Gym & A Few of My Favorite Beachbody Products

Why I No Longer Go To The Gym & Favorite Beachbody Products

Life before Beachbody

For many years I was a member of a gym, like ever since high school.  And while I’ve always known the importance of exercising and staying fit, going to the gym wasn’t something I particularly enjoyed doing.

As a wife and now mom there are just so many other things (laundry, meal planninggrocery shopping, etc.) that need to get done.  My husband on the other hand could spend hours at the gym.  He loves to workout.  Our approaches to the gym were very different.  I wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible. Before we had our son, spending an entire Saturday morning at the gym was my husband’s idea of a good time, not mine.  I would anxiously watch the clock and think about all the things I needed to get done before I could do some actual weekend relaxing.   Continue reading “Why I No Longer Go to the Gym & A Few of My Favorite Beachbody Products”

How & Why I Meal Prep

How & Why I Meal Prep

I really enjoy eating a variety of food so I’ve never been one of those people who cook up a bunch of the same food and eat it for every meal during the week.  Blech.  Also, if I think about food too much I don’t want to eat it.  Strange, I know. This is how & why I meal prep. Continue reading “How & Why I Meal Prep”

Cize Review

Cize Review

I love to dance so when I heard about Shaun T’s latest dance focused fitness program, CIZE, I knew I had to try it.  For all of my dance friends who haven’t danced in a while it’s a great way to get back into dance.  Since you’re in the privacy of your own home you don’t have to worry about what you look like.  You can literally dance like no is watching.  It feels really good to get into the music and just dance again.

Oh, yeah and you’re exercising at the same time!  CIZE is totally different from traditional exercise programs so I feel like it really helps me exercise different parts of my body and my brain.

This CIZE Review gives you an idea of what you can expect from this workout program. Continue reading “Cize Review”

Mapping Out a Fit Year

Mapping Out A Fit Year

I’ve mentioned before that working out isn’t my favorite thing, but I know it’s important to maintain my health.  I used to go to the gym to workout but after B was born I started doing Beachbody programs (check out my reviews for 21 Day Fix, T25, Brazil Butt Lift, 10-Minute Trainer, Cize, and BodyBeast).  They work great for me because I like to have a plan to follow instead of wandering around the gym trying to decide which machine I want to do or which muscle group I should workout. I also like being able to wake up, push play and get my workout done first thing in the morning without even thinking.

I’ve mapped out a workout plan for a fit year with all my favorite Beachbody programs to help me stay on the right track. Continue reading “Mapping Out a Fit Year”
