Losing the Baby Weight Week 3 Results

Week 3 was fantastic.  I really, and I mean REALLY, like the TAVA dance 1 for my cardio.My only issue is that I was having a really hard time following the DVD since there is no rear view for learning/following along with the dance.  I mean, I thought I was pretty coordinated but trying to reverse the steps while learning at the same time made me feel like I had two left feet.  After looking around the internet, I was able to find this rear view via Well + Good that I have been using for all of my dance cardio this week. It is about 4 minutes long so I just repeat it 4x for 15 mins or 8x for 30 mins.  I also figured out how to stream this on our TV through the AppleTV which has made all the difference.  I posted a quick tutorial on my Instastories in case anyone was interested.  If you missed it and are interested, just let me know and I will put a quick video up on YouTube with all of the steps 🙂 It works for any streaming content so you can use it with Tracy Anderson’s Real Time streaming as well!

I’m back to provide a wrap-up of week two of my resolution to lose this baby weight. This week I got in a solid workout everyday. In a normal week I would be proud of that but this week it was an even bigger deal because the baby got sick on Tuesday afternoon and had a fever and horrible cough through Saturday.  She was up every few hours which meant that none of us were getting much sleep and the sleep we got wasn’t that great.  On the bright side, she is on the mend and back to her normal happy, laid-back disposition.  Since I was doing so good with my workouts, I was really hoping to get the special 2017 activity badge on my Apple Watch this week but then I forgot to put my watch on until around 10am Friday and ended up missing the 12 hour stand ring (whomp whomp.) Oh well, maybe I will try again this/next week. Read More…

Which means there is going to be a whole lot of working out going on in the next 6 months. Read More…

Bullet Journal Weekly Layout January 8-14

How the Bullet Journal is helping keep this busy mom on track and organized. My weekly spread for January 8-14, 2017 | iheartmomlife.com

I don’t know about you, but with 2 little ones and working outside of the house full-time, I need all the help I can get staying organized. I’ve been meal planning for a few years now on the Notes app on my iPhone and then putting everything else I wanted to accomplish on my phone’s calendar.  This worked okay, but it wasn’t ideal because I had stuff all over the place. I was always switching back and forth between apps, looking at one of my devices and because I wasn’t able to easily see everything at a glance, it was too easy for stuff to slip through the cracks and fall off my radar.  Read More…

2017 Resolutions

Show of hands . . . who else is SUPER excited for New Years Resolutions?  I have to admit it, I absolutely love this time of year!  I just feel like it is the perfect opportunity to take a breath after the busy holiday season, look around, and assess where I am and where I want to head in the upcoming year.  This is one of the times when I completely embrace optimism and believe anything is possible.  This year I am going to be both specific AND realistic with my goals because I REALLY want to keep them (who doesn’t, right?)
