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?


Work it mama

There is one thing that all mothers have in common and that’s the fact that you always want to be the sexiest, coolest, divalious hippest mom that you can be! Well I know that’s what my goal is, I don’t know about the rest of you. One of the easiest ways to achieve all of the above is staying fit and centering yourself daily. I know there’s a lot of days that that’s not accomplish-able but we should all try to give at least that much to ourselves. We give so much to everyone else so why not treating ourselves by being fit and sexy. Believe me it makes being tired and overwhelmed worth it when you look in mirror.

Well today I Work It ladies! Yep, I hit my in home gym ( empty room with fitness equipment:) ) and sweated it out! First I started by putting on some of my form-fitting work out clothe, just a little incentive when you look in the mirror :)

Next of course you have to get the right attitude by pulling out your favorite Ipod playlist, here’s mine for today ( they’re oldies but goodies)

  1. Loose Control- Missy E.
  2. Hate on Me- Jill Scott
  3. Stronger- Kanye West
  4. Bite the Dust – PCD
  5. All of Rihanna’s Album
  6. Pon De Replay Remix w/ Elephant Man (this was a repeat!)
  7. All of Ciara‘s dance hit

And then the Work out:

  • Cardio Warm- up–high-speed jump rope for 12 mins (exchanging speeds every 3 minutes)
  • 2 sets of 15 Toe Touch Squat( TRX)
  • 3 sets of 15 DB shoulder press
  • 3 sets of 15 wide-grip pull down
  • 3 sets of 20 steps lunges
  • 3 sets of 15 Stability ball crunches

and let me tell you ladies, this is no joke! I did all sets with no rest in between in then took a 30 sec. rest in between each work out. I’m sweating my tushy off and feeling the burn still but I feel A MA ZING!

So amazing that I kept my i pod rolling and continue to dance my way all through out my house!

So try it girls– work it mama! Be fabulous today!
