Sports bras I'm loving!

Every time I workout, I have to cool down, dry off my sweat, and then I can breast feed Shane. I haven't had any type of workout nursing bras...until now. The very cool people at Bravado Designs were so kind to send me a couple bras to try out.

The first time I put them on, I was having a stupid moment. I couldn't figure out how to put it on. Silly me, it's pretty easy, it is just a bra.

They are super comfortable and the best chafing!! I've gone running in them a lot (more than 15 times) and never have had a problem. I don't bounce, and everything stays in place. Shane can even get fed faster.

The other cool thing about these bras is that once I'm done nursing (only about 4 more months), they turn into a normal bra. It's not wasted! It came with a "conversion". So, the detachable area gets cut off and I hook on a part that came with the package. It looks pretty simple too! Anything that makes this running mommy (of 2 boys) life easier, I'm all for it!!

I think I like the pink one best!

Which color do you prefer on me? Do you have any cool ways that make your mommy (or daddy) life easier?

The quadruple workout

Yesterday was a pretty great day! I got a lot of sweat dripped! It started out with my morning run (already told you about that). Then, while I was waiting for Shane to get hungry, I got in my abs. A little floor time for all three of us. Once Shane ate for the second time, I took the boys out for a little sun (before it got too hot).

Pushing the double stroller is not joke. It's hard, but it makes me a stronger runner, sans stroller.

Once the boys were napping, I was finally able to wash my car. I think I last washed it just after Shane came, so it's been a while. I also had some "extra" time and energy to wax my car. BANG!!! My arm workout for the day. Four workouts in one day & im not too sore/tired this morning.

In fact, I got up early this morning and headed out for a morning run. Boys boys and I have a lot planned for the rest of the week, so I won't be able to get in any double workouts (let alone quadruple).

How are you enjoying the sun?

Workout updates

On Thursday, I didn't get up before the boys, but I still got my run in, with them. Shane slept through almost the entire run 2.5 miles) and Lars was my chatter box. I loved it all! It made the time pass by quickly.

These two are my world and make me want to set a good, healthy example for them.

In Saturday, a local police station had an open house. There were so many people there and things to do! He met a police dog, got a "badge" and other fun things. One of the free activities the kids could do is workout with a cop (crossfit). His favorite was lifting a 10lbs medicine ball over his head (off course, with help) and slamming in in the mat. 

On Sunday, hubs & Lars did some work in the backyard while Shane and I watched.

This morning, I got in a mini solo run and am planning on doing another 2.5 with the boys after I do some stuff around the house.

How was your weekend spent?

Getting stronger!

Every day I workout, the stronger I get. I didn't get up early enough yesterday, but I did this morning! I worked my arms, and I feel stronger for doing so. 

It's suppose to be 92 today, so shorts and a tank were in order. Don't you love my new socks (along with the other 5 pairs) that my boys bought my for Mother's Day?!? They're super comfy and light weight. Perfect for summer running!

My arms are starting to have a tiny bit of definition 😊

After I feed Shane, I'm taking the boys out for a tiny run around the neighborhood. I just have to make sure the weather isn't too hot (which it shouldn't be by then). 

What's the weather like around you?

Jumping for joy!

Jumping for joy or actually doing squat jumps for joy. I've been half assing my workouts. If I don't wake up early enough, I do squeeze it in after the boys have lunch. 

But, I got my ass out of bed early enough

I worked out my legs and had fun sweaty it out!!! My legs are going to feel it, once they decide to wake up. I'm so glad I did this today. I didn't get up early yesterday, so I worked my abs while the boys played together yesterday.

How do you get your workouts in?

Late arm workout & a morning run

I managed to wake up this morning, before the boys (& before Jason left for work). So, I was able to go out for a tiny run. A nice crisp morning and Metallica playing in my ears made for a great wake up!

Yesterday, I chose sleep over an arm workout. I felt so guilty all day, but stil glad I chose sleep. I managed to get all my stuff done during the day. So, when Shane went down for a nap and Lars was watching Mickey, I managed a quick 20 minute, sweat drenching workout.

While I was working out, this is what was in the oven baking...zucchini bake. It was pretty good! Even Lars ate his entire plate.

What do you do when you miss a workout?

Longest plank & a fast breakfast

I'm on day 2 without any stupid injury or lack of motivation. I really wanted to hit snooze when my alarm went off this morning. But, I knew how much I'd regret not getting my workout in (only time I have throughout the day, until Shane can walk). 

Today was an ab day. I held a plank for 35 seconds!! That's huge for me. I haven't been able to do that since before I was pregnant with Lars. So proud of myself!!

Once I finished my workout, I got some things done around the house and enjoyed breakfast with Lars. He had cereal while I enjoyed my crustless quiche muffins. So good! I out zucchini, mushrooms and tomatoes in it. So good!

I made these a couple days ago and now I can just pop a couple in the microwave to heat up whenever I'm ready. Super fast!

What's your go to super fast breakfast?
