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?


It doesn’t have to start in 2012 people!

It doesn’t take much to get healthy– just a little determination and consistancy. I was that conplancent mama back in the day that was ok with still looking somewhat young and wasn’t out of shape but wasn’t in shape and healthy. I was that mama that had one kid that thought I was going to be the coolest chicest mom out there and then got a rude awaking after my fourth child. I was that mama that took care of everyone else but took little care of myself. I was that mama that had a rocking style but now wear the same 7-10 sets of clothes and was ok with it. I was that mama never really watched what she ate because she never really had time to eat. I was that mama that made excuses for everything because excuses were better than admitting that I was getting lazy and conplacent.

But hey things can change, right?

I’m no longer any of those things and am proud that I am taking the first steps to living the life that I deserve!

It all started with this

10 minutes a day keeps the flab away

So the 4th has passed, so now what? Well for me– I think it’s time for me to get back to my monthly daily workouts. Just like every other woman/ mom, I’m such a lazy butt when it comes to my workouts. We all know that it’s good for us and studies say that it will help us release stress but do we get up and do it? Heck no. Well at least I know I don’t. I feel sooooo good when I DO workout but I just hate leaving the house being around all those ” I just come to the gym to be cute” chicks, so I just stay home ( see it’s their fault not mines). Well see the only bad think about that is that my husband came up with this simple but effective 10 Minute Workout that I can now do at home. Shit why did I marry a personal trainer?  Well ladies, since I’m such a helpful person ;) I decide to pass on the goods and help you get up off your couch too!

So here it is: 10 Minute home workout plan
