Fit Friday-Mom Edition #5 And A Life Update

Hey there, everyone! I hope the week treated you well. I am going back to work on Monday after 12 weeks of being home with my sweet girl. It will be hard to be away from her, but there is only 4 weeks left until summer break. I am staying home with baby next year and feel so blessed that I am able to do so.

Anyway…we have had a great week! Let’s recap, shall we?


My mom came over to babysit so my husband and I could have a date night. She came over early and let me sneak off to the gym first! I did a 30 minute hiit workout on the treadmill.

I came home and got ready for date night. My husband and I went to bibibop for dinner, then saw Avengers End Game.

Dinner was delicious and we both loved the movie.


The day started with online teaching and coffee. I did a pure barre workout video at home and it left me so sore!

The day consisted of housework until it was time for baby to have a bath.

Dinner was amazing. I made a kielbasa and sweet potato hash! Yum!!


I put baby in her mammaroo while I did a fitness blender workout video. It was quick and sweaty!

I took baby K to meet all of my work friends that day! It was so fun to show her off.

For dinner, I made buffalo ranch chicken in the crockpot. I had mine on an English muffin!


My mom came over to spend time with us. She watched baby K while I went to a tabata class at the gym. It was so fun.

When I got home, my mom and I took the little one on a stroller walk. I love having her to walk with!

For dinner, we got Northstar Cafe and it did not disappoint!


I taught online this morning before having coffee with my husband. When he left for work, I got the baby down for a nap and started organizing!

When baby woke up, we played, then she sat in her swing while I did the elliptical.

I have sausage and bean soup in the crockpot for dinner.

Now…off to relax a bit before the little one wakes up!

Have a great weekend!

With love,

Fit Friday-cardio and weights HIIT workout 

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you had a great week, but if you didn’t,  I hope the weekend helps you forget about it. My husband and I are moving into our first house tomorrow. I’m as anxious as I am excited!

This morning, in the midst of packing, I wanted to get in a quick, yet efficient workout. I love high intensity workouts  because you can get so much out of 30 minutes (which is exactly how long I worked out this morning). 

This workout requires a cardio machine  (I used a treadmill) and a set of hand weights/dumbells.

Warmup for at least 5 minutes before you start!

The workout:

  • One mile run (I did a build from an easy jog to a steady run)
  • Next do 10 rounds of the following: one minute sprint, one minute weighted exercise off of treadmill 

Here are the exercises I did:

  1. Curl press
  2. Lunges
  3. Plank
  4. Back rows 
  5. Arnold press
  6. Push ups
  7. Mountain climbers 
  8. Squat with a front kick
  9. Db bench on floor
  10. Calf raises

Make sure you take a few minutes to cool down! 

*please note that I am not a personal trainer. Be careful with hiit workouts and always listen to your body. I only post workouts that work for me, and what I feel comfortable doing.
On that note, I need to get some rest before our big day tomorrow! Have a great weekend and enjoy the workout!

With love,
