Sunny Day Workouts And A Weekend Update

Hello, all! I am in a swimsuit for the first time this year, enjoying a beautiful, sunny day! I got a high wasted suit last year from Amazon and love it. The rest of the week is supposed to be rainy, so I am enjoying being outside as much as possible.

SATURDAY was sunny and beautiful, too. We spent the day outside watering flowers, taking walks, working out, and waving to neighbors.

My husband did yard work the whole day. He is the best!

Baby K using her watering can and helping mommy.

The day ended with City BBQ and finshing Outer Banks on Netflix!

SUNDAY was chilly and rainy, so we played inside, and I deep cleaned the house during K’s naps. Dinner was chickpea pasta with meat sauce. After dinner, we watched 17 Again. That is such a cute movie!

As far as WORKOUTS go, I did mine outdoors Saturday and today, while resting on Sunday.

On Saturday, I used bands, kettlebells, and stairs to do a circuit workout. It was fun, and being outside is so motivating!

Today, I did a few full body excercises with the bands, then K and I headed outside for a stroller hill and barre workout. It felt amazing, and the weather was PERFECT!

These nice days are making me so happy, and I am looking forward to steady warm weather.

That’s all for today! I hope you have a great week ahead.

With love,

Carly

Workout Wednesday-Stroller Barre, Bands, And Hills

Hello, and happy Wednesday, all! My daughter has been fighting her morning nap, but tends to fall asleep in her stroller, so I have been taking advantage of that to get outside and workout. The fresh air is the BEST, and we are soaking it up any chance we get. Today, I did another stroller workout, and added some extra hill runs and bands. It felt so good, and baby K relaxed until she dozed off.

THE WORKOUT:

*1/2 mile jog to warmup

*1 hill sprint

*2 rounds of 20 stroller lunges and 20 pulses, 10 squats and 10 pulses, 20 side leg lifts, 20 calf raises

Repeat the run and strength exercises 3 times through.

*Afterwards, I put on the bands for a short burnout round (squats and pulses) until I got tired.

The whole thing took around 35-40 minutes. I walked about 5 minutes at the end to cool down.

Look at K so happy after her stroller nap. Gosh, she is the sweetest!!

That’s all for today, friends! I am off to get get the baby up from her afternoon nap, then head to my grocery pickup.

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Stay safe and healthy!

With love,

Carly

Fit Friday-Outside Stroller Workout

Hello all and happy Friday!! I hope you are all staying healthy and sane. With my husband and sister-in-law still working, I definitely get caught up in my anxiety, but am trying my best to stay calm through everything.

I miss seeing my mom often, and am craving some adult time. Luckily, my daughter and I have been having fun, and the weather has been absolutely beautiful!

Yesterday, we were out a lot between the stroller and her big kid car. She likes the car best because she can sit up. Gosh, I love my curly haired cutie!

In the morning, I put her in the stroller for a barre/cardio workout. She napped for most of it. It was perfect, and a great change of pace from just running. Plus, the fresh air gave me extra motivation. I found a workout online and changed it up a bit.

THE WORKOUT:

*Half (ish) mile run

*1 hill jog

*20 squats + 20 lunges (10 each side) -5 times through both excercises

I repeated everything 3 times, I just switched up the leg excercises!

OTHER LEG EXERCISES: Side leg lifts, calf raises, leg pulses, squat jumps

The whole thing took me around 40 minutes. It felt SO good. I hope to do this style a lot now that the weather is getting nicer.

This weekend is calling for rain and storms, but we are hoping to get outside in between.

Have a great weekend!

With love,

Carly
