Good morning Tuesday! Workout, check. Shower, check. Girls fed, check. Coffee, check (enjoying it as I type actually). Blogging, check! Woohoo to 2 days in a row!!
So, Damien and I have been working out together for almost 4 months now and we get up before the sun to make this happen. For awhile, he'd get up and I'd sleep until the girls were up and work out when they napped. This caused a problem because I felt like I wasn't getting anything done around the house. Moms, you know what I am talking about! It is so difficult to get anything done with kids telling you they are hungry, pulling their sister's hair and destroying your house.
So, I took the plunge and started getting up to work out with my husband so I could feel like I accomplished my motherly duties during the day. It was tough at first. I mean TOUGH! By no means am I a morning person, but getting and staying fit is something that is important to me, so I push through. Honestly, now it is kinda hard to sleep in!
We are finishing up our fourth month of Focus T25. It's a Beachbody workout and we have truly loved it and seen great results. While I haven't done so well with actually dropping weight, my body is so much more tone and I'm stronger than I have ever been. My husband, on the other hand, has lost over 30 pounds ~ it's simply not fair how much faster men can shed the pounds!
The workouts are 25 minutes, 6 days a week with one day being a stretch videeo. You will drip sweat in those 25 minutes, I promise! Anyone can squeeze in 25 minutes to work out. That's the amount of time it takes to watch one sitcom! Another great thing about this program, is that there is a modifier in each video, so if you cannot do the more strenuous moves or if you get tired, you don't have to just sit and watch. The first 2 months are called Alpha and Beta. The third month is called Gamma and you can order that separately. We completed Alpha, Beta, Gamma and are now doing a Gamma hybrid option.

I took some before photos of myself and will take after when we finish. Watch for those to show up on the blog in the next two weeks. And today, I am ordering P90X3. It's a 30 minute version of P90X, so I will also post about how we like that when start (I'm scared!)
Because I've been working out so hard and have started to run a few days a week after my workout, my sweet husband brought me home some new kicks the other day and I L-O-V-E them! It feels like I am walking on pillows when I am wearing them and the are super light.
