Mommy & Me Exercises

One of my main new years resolutions was to train to being a healthier and happier me. I’m happy to say I’ve been sticking with my goals and have incorporated a morning mommy workout routine that I do on the daily. With a pre-kindergartener  that is only in school half days, I include my 4 year son into my morning works outs using a jogging stroller. Watch my video as I share my warm up run routine, a few stretches, and some fun Mommy & Me Exercises to do with your little one! Check out my latest video I posted on YouTube! I’ll try my very best to start a new schedule of YouTube posts and blog posts! I’m only human and my mind in particular races so fast, I want to do so many things at one time but I honestly can’t. Sometimes I run and work out all days, the others I craft all days, and many days more than others, I stay home cleaning and catching up on laundry! 

I hope you enjoy my Mommy and Me Exercise video! With any luck with those moms out there reaching new healthy goals of being fit and happy, I hope you can find joy and encouragement as we can celebrate together on our healthy journey! Cheers to those training for their first 5K, 10K, fun run, or even Half Marathon like me! We all have to start somewhere!

Desire To Change

Everyday I make sacrifices that will align them towards my goals. I’ve made changes to my every day routines, and am willing to pour in the hard work and effort. Derrick started a new job, but works on East Coast hours; so he wakes up everyday at 5AM. I’ve now gotten in the same routine where I wake up with him. Our internal clocks our now on the same rhythm; except I don’t get paid for waking up at 5AM.

We start our mornings with taking our natural sugar-free energy drinks, morning vitamins. From there, we separate starting on our own personal routines. He goes into his office, and I head straight to the garage to workout, contribute to my blog, or get a head start to my household chores without the children as a distraction. Our morning routines have become such an ideal schedule for us. Just adding in the additional 2 hours to my day, I am capable of accomplishing many things in the morning.

Being a stay at home, weekdays are my workdays, and weekends get twice as busy. Family parties, baseball games, and other misc last minute get-togethers and meetings. The past month, I’ve schedule every other Sunday to hike or run with my good friend Ermina. We both wake up at 5AM, and meet 6AM ready to run or hike. See, I love friendships like that. Met Ermina at mutual friends’ kids bowling birthday party, and hit it off. I love her seriousness in making plans. Holding each other accountable, and staying true to our plans.

Mission Peak

Last Sunday we decided to hike Mission Peak. Mission Peak is a public park that borders and overlooks the Silicon Valley. It is very popular with local hikers, bicyclists, sightseers and tourists from beyond for its vista and strenuous climb. It’s a full six-mile (10km) round-trip. The  The “Mission Peeker” marker pole at the top is the most famous geo-tagged landmark of Fremont.

Mission Peak Top

hHere’s a picture of us at the top, with the Mission Peak marker pole. Usually, hikers stay at the top of awhile rest and have a morning snack, we literally hiked up, shared a granola bar while waiting in line for picture, and headed right back down. That’s what I call a morning! Keep it moving! Be outdoors, waking up early, and being productive for your mind, body, and soul!

Feeling balanced, healthy, and inspired always.
