Thrown Together, Better Than Nothing Workout

Workin' Out

Sometimes being a fit, stay-at-home mama with a husband who has a crazy work schedule means being flexible and creating the mindset that not every workout will go as planned, but dinkin’ around and exercising as you can is better than nothing at all.

I used to get agrevated and let it ruin my day if I couldn’t get in my “planned” workout.

These days, I am happy to get in a last minute-thrown together-makes-no-sense-but-it-feels-good workout.

I am, however, far from perfect, and those days where I REALLY need a planned, structured workout without interuptions still exist.

Usually the kiddos are crawling up my leg or chasing the bunny in the other room, while I squeeze in exercises between checking on them and making sure the bunny isn’t cornered and being tortured. (Note that no animals are ever harmed in our household. We love our bunny) But yesterday Javin had the kids outside with him. I knew I had a million projects to do to help out around the house but I threw a few ideas together and came up with is routine:


Banded squat hold with high pull


Raised bridge knee drives with leg lifts


Banded rdl with db curl


Bosu side plank with lateral leg lift

It was a nice total body routine that after a few rounds felt like it served its purpose.


Again, I’m just thankful for the ability to live a fit lifestyle. And I’m even more thankful I get to share it with my family and especially my kiddos.
