My 30 Minute Full Body Circuit Workout

Hello, all!! Life has been so busy since we have moved. We finally have everything out of my mom’s apartment, but are still working on unpacking and organizing.

All of our unpacked boxes are in the basement, which also serves as a guest room, game room for my husband, and home gym. It is large luckily haha.

I eventually want to add to my home gym, but am making due with what I have for now. I did a quick, tough workout the other day that I wanted to share!

So far my gym has an elliptical/bike, light weights, bands, and a punching bag

30 MINUTE FULL BODY CIRCUIT WORKOUT:

5 minute warmup: I did the elliptical

5 rounds: 20 weighted squats + 20 squat pulses, 20 kicks (each side) on punching bag

5 rounds: 20 push-ups, 20 punches (each side) on bag

Finish on the elliptical until you hit 30 minutes.

Cool down and stretch!

You can definitely do this without weights and a punching bag!

Hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!

Weekend Workout (Strength and Cardio)

Hello and happy Saturday! We are off to see the progress on our new home, then heading to my husband’s shop for a bit. I am hoping to grab a favorite local food place by there to bring home for dinner.

Anyway…

This morning I was able to get in an outdoor workout during K’s nap. My husband had the monitor, so I had a chance to take a little time for myself. It was quick, sweaty, and felt so good. The weather was overcast and warm, but had a lovely breeze!

THE WORKOUT:

*5 minute run

*Legs: 3 rounds with weights

10 squat to calf raise, 10 squat pulses, 10 single leg deadlifts (both sides)

*5 minute run

*Arms: 3 rounds with weights

10 around the worlds, 10 bicep pulses, 10 push-ups (I did incline)

*5 minute run

*Full body: 3 rounds with weights

10 curl press, 10 lunges (both sides), 10 overhead triceps

The whole workout took my a little over 30 minutes!

*Disclaimer: I only post what works for me and my body! You can absolutely tailor this to your specific goals.

I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!

With love,

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

Food, Fitness, And Friday Favorites

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. I sure do miss getting out, just the store, gym class with baby K, wine dates with friends, or a random Starbucks trip. I do feel so lucky to be home with my beautiful baby girl every day. She gets me through, that’s for sure.

Her personality shines, and she is a constant reminder of just how blessed we are.

This week has been pretty chilly, so most days have been spent inside. Today, however, is beautiful! Baby and I took a jog this morning and plan on getting back out after her nap.

Let’s talk favorites this week…

TV:

*Tiger King: we finally jumped on the band wagon and oh my gosh what a crazy show! We binged it in a couple nights after K went to bed.

*Outer Banks: We are loving this show! I have been going to the Outer Banks every year for over 20 years, so that makes it even more fun to watch.

*Nailed It: This show is absolutely hilarious and makes me forget my worries.

Please share your favorites! I love suggestions.

FOOD:

Veggie burgers, taco cups, wheat crust pizza, and a basil burrito from Northstar Cafe. YUM!

FITNESS:

Bands, my new kettlebells, elliptical, hiit videos, and stroller jogs!

OTHER:

*True Crime podcasts

*My library book app for Kindle

Well, friends! That’s all I have for today. I hope you have an excellent weekend.

With love,

Carly
