The Fit Fem Adventures

Fit Fem of the Month - August 2015

Did you know that I am a new mommy? Yes indeedy, I have an infant at home and now I really know what it is like to have ZERO time as a mama. Now I can relate to all those moms I have spoken to in the past telling me “I don’t have time to workout.” I’m not giving those mamas an easy pass but I am sensitive to their needs…because I too know exactly what it is like to forget to brush your teeth, skip a meal, and maybe not even shower because baby is crying…baby comes first after-all!

Like I said, there is no easy pass for not exercising and moving your body. Exercise makes you a stronger women physically, mentally, and emotionally. It makes you a better woman, spouse, professional, friend and of course mama!!

15 Minute Weekend Workout. You know you wanna try it!

Who is ready for the weekend?? I know I am…exhaustion is an understatement at this point in my pregnancy. People keep telling me to get all my sleep in now but having insomnia is kinda getting in the way of my sleep schedule. By Friday I am ready to put my feet up and relax a bit. I am sure you are too BUT it would not be the weekend without one short yet intense workout. Am I right?

The “breadless” sandwich snack

Looking for something refreshing to snack on? Search no further ladies; try out these “breadless” cucumber sandwiches.

I know the word “breadless” caught your attention. This statement means limited carb intake and is a winner for those looking to cut back on their carbohydrates. . I know some of us (cough cough – me) are carboholics. Not all carbs are bad; however, it can make us feel sluggish and pack on the pounds if consumed in excess.

P!nk - Strong, Beautiful and Freakin Perfect

I’ll never forget the day a previous boss of mine told me …” You’d only be perfect if you lost this.” She grabbed on to what little fat I had around my “love handles”. As you can imagine this put me over the edge. It ruined my self-esteem. I felt belittled. I felt like I wasn’t good enough. I felt like I needed to prove to her that I can be perfect…with just a little more work and lot more pills.

Man, I wish I had Pink to look up to back then.  I’m talking about the singer. 

….. Ha, kinda funny eh? I wanted to be “perfect” and that’s one of Pink’s hit songs. Ok I digress……

How to Breathe Efficiently While Running

I am not a runner. I do not think this comes as a surprise to anyone, running just ain’t my thang. But, I have had people ask me how to breathe efficiently while running and it is very similar to breathing while working out in general. The question really is how do you increase your aerobic capacity during any aerobic activity – running, swimming, a ChoreoKick class (cough cough).

What we want to experience is that ability to run for a period of time without feeling utterly out of breath and to be able to transport oxygen to the rest of our muscles so we can sustain the actual movement for a period of time.

Mini Pyramid Workout for the WEEKEND!!

And Friday has arrived once again. Time to celebrate the WEEKEND! But before you run off to happy hour ask yourself if you gave your body the workout it deserved this week. Did you get that blood pumping? Did you feel your heart rate increase? If not then I definitely suggest the Fit Fem Mini Pyramid Workout.

I designed the Mini Pyramid as an exercise that is high intensity, high burst, and high energy. This “short burst workout” can be done anywhere at any time so feel free to get it done while watching TV, at the beach or at the park. It does not require any equipment or lots of space. All you need is 10 minutes and the dedication to push through.

FRIDAY!! The Quickie Weekend Workout

It’s difficult to workout on the weekends – I know – I am gearing up for my baby girl and the weekends have been intense. BUT it is necessary (as I have said in past posts) to take a few moments and give your body the exercise it deserves. You should always take a day of rest but not the whole weekend. Also, there is a good chance that you sat at your desk or in a car most of the week – give your body the movement and energy it craves!

I know the work week can be stressful, I am right there with you. We look forward to the weekends as they are a time to catch up on sleep , watch our favorite DVR’d shows, and go out to eat with our family and friends. There is nothing better than a marathon of sitcoms on a Saturday night. I’ll admit, my DVR needs some attention.  So, keeping this in mind I went ahead and created a quickie total body workout that can been done while taking in your TV binge. No need to thank me!
