Work IT mama { schedule & workout}

My intentions for today was to post my first Work IT mama vlog but of course everything had to go wrong this morning and that didn’t happen.  So in the mean time I’m still going to give you a peek…. well not really a peek but a breakdown on how this mama works IT!

530– Wake up, get dressed and prepare little K’s school work

600- Check emails, prepare blog post and check for any coupon deals ( I can’t miss a deal)

630– Wake my two older boys for school & make breakfast

700– Kiss the boys off to school, wake my husband ( little M & little K) and off to the gym

700-830– Get my sweat on, relieve stress & clear my mind ( work-out)

830–Finish up & drink my Herbalife shake and prepare my herbal tea for the day ( still at the gym)

830-900 — eat breakfast, take vitamins ( maybe I will post later on my vitamin choices)

and start school for little K .

That’s my morning– check out later post for the rest of my day, I know 530 is early but this is the only way that I found that I can get my personal time and get in a workout.

Today’s work-out

Right now I’m trying to get cut so I’m using this work out from Making the Cut by Jillian Michael

Body ball dumbbell presses ( 10 each arm)

dumbbell Flys on body ball w/ Crunch ( set of 15)

Squats ( 50 fast)

Plank ( hold 10 sec)

Side planks w/ inner thigh raise ( set of 10)

Burpies straight from plank ( 10)

Sumo Squats ( set of 50)

This is 3 different circuits with no rest in between exercises

I also do a 1 minute sprint in between each circuit

Believe me this workout is a killer but it gets the job done!

 Work- out days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday. I use Wednesday for my rest day and use Saturday for my cardio with the family.

So what about you? Do you workout in the morning or at night and if so what’s your schedule?


Mama Maintenance {move it mommy!}

Ok have you ever woke up one morning running late and having a million things to do? Well yesterday morning was that morning for me. Usually my morning routine is wake up at 6, prepare Little K’s work for school, wake my older boys up( at 630) so they can get ready for school, kiss them bye onto the bus at 7 and then off to get my hour workout in till about 8.

Didn’t happen that way yesterday because for one I didn’t hear my clock alarm and then on top of that I had to be at my middle son’s Christmas party at 9. So instead of my normal hour workout– I had to cut things short and race off to the gym and do a quick 30 minute workout.

Which consist of :

Got in a good sweat, cleared my mind and was ready for the rest of the day!

Even if you have limited time– always make time for mommie :) Remember if we don’t keep our maintenance up then the whole machine breaks down ( family)

So what’s one of your “go to” workouts when you’re crunched for time? Please share, thinking about starting a linky party for next week :)

Also remember only 30% is the gym and the other 70% is nutrition— so take a look at my Work IT tab and see what  we use as a family and provide our clients. It’s the best thing popping:)
