Weekly Workouts + Why I’m Switching Things Up

Hello, hello!

So, guys, I’m happy to report that a whole lot of working out happen last week. Woohoo! I managed to fit in SIX (!) workouts, which I’m pretty sure is a PR since becoming a mom. Haha!

Ok, so after barely working out since the New Year, I was starting to feel cranky/stressed, and I know exercise keeps me sane, so I knew something needed to change. I wasn’t making it to CrossFit all that much, so I looked into joining a local gym where I could work out on my own. So far, it’s made ALL the difference with fitting in some more workouts. Now, I just swing by the gym for a quickie workout after I drop Quinn off at school or before I pick him up. I love high-intensity runninng workouts, so I’m typically in and out within 30-45 minutes, and I’m really loving it so far. It’s also great because I can share my workouts on Instagram and CNC, so, hopefully, you guys will get some good ideas for workouts too! With that, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!
