New Years resolution to better me

Hey babes! It’s here. The time of year we take a big hard look at ourselves and our lives and vow to make changes for the new year… Well I have been working hard to better myself already but now that I am 4 months post baby. I am ready to work hard physically and get my body in shape like I was 7 years ago when I met Kevin! I just turned 30 so I have even more motivation to fight the aging process now that I’m officially in my 30s.

I dont go to the gym, I really do not like working out in public. I also have some challenges working out because of my foot injury so I like to work out in privacy to avoid feeling judged. So here I am working out with my babe! I consider #momlife in general a workout, folding laundry while doing some lunges, swinging baby while engaging my abs, those are some quick thing I try and do just to keep the muscles in action. I also throw in leg lifts and crunches whenever we are on the floor for playtime. I really love the tips I get from The Fit Brunette – Samantha Bowers. I also have done the bbg- Kayla Itsines routines in the past and LOVED it!

Since I don’t really work out formally I don’t spend a ton of money on active wear. I do wear activewear on the regular even just running to target or the grocery store and I really like the selection at Old Navy. Since the Old Navy store is in the same shopping plaza as the Whole Foods and Target I shop at I am basically only shopping those 3 stores lately. Unless I am shopping online. These Leggings are nice and thick for compression so they’re flattering and I am all about the mesh detailing! These leggings come in different styles, prints, and colors. I also grabbed this sherpa cardi because I cant avoid anything fluffy these days! I am freezing and crave all things cozy. this plush knit basic I grabbed in 3 colors! I found sneakers like mine here on sale for $75, I am wearing a kids 7.

Kalvin loves his piano mat so he exercises while I do. He rolled over yesterday during play time, can’t believe it! I got some questions about his bib the other day it’s new, it’s called the buddy bib and he also always has this sensory toy.

Hey loves!! Right now sickness is going through our house. It started with Koko, she no doubt caught it at school. Her first week back! ugh. She has had a fever for a week, needs breathing treatments to loosen up the phlegm in her lungs and now has an ear infection. Mamas know how hard it is when kids are sick… sometimes they’re too little for medication, I am quick to dose myself with Mucinex and Robitussin, but I cant give that to the littles… I was desperate for natural relief so I turned to essential oils. I began using them during my first pregnancy and learned a lot in the last 3 years.
