A minivan and a workout

A Minivan and I am Changed Forever

Oh my, I can’t believe I just wrote that title. I have truly lost my mind. So Steve and I decided we could really use a bigger car for our two little ones and maybe one day another little munchkin. Currently, we have a Trailblazer that we bought used 4 years ago just before we had Sophia.

2013 Chrysler Town & Country Limited is a White 2013 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Car for Sale in San Antonio TX

So, we began our search with the Traverse, originally my first choice. At the beginning of our search I was fighting the minivan idea. I just couldn’t picture myself in a minivan. I mean come on I am only 27 years old and all of a sudden I am supposed to be a minivan driver. It just seemed crazy. Well, low and behold, we test drove the Chrysler Town and Country and all I can say is wow. It truly is the most convenient family vehicle. Chrysler truly thought of everything. And let me tell you, I have been a GM driver ever since I started driving. My Grandpa worked for GM so I never looked in any other direction. Ok, maybe when I was 16 and I had to have a mustang convertible but I was 16, enough said. Anyway, the Town and Country is magical. Did I really just say that? So, by tonight I might be the new proud owner of a minivan. AHHHH!

Full Body Pilates Workout – At Home

If there is something I learned while being a mother it is how to get a great workout at home. One thing I know about myself is that I workout harder if I am being instructed by a teacher, therefore at home I like to do videos. It gives me the group fitness class feel without having to drive anywhere. But I can’t go spend thousands of dollars on different exercise programs. Therefore, I had to be resourceful. I have found so many wonderful FREE workouts on YouTube as well as On Demand. As the days go one I will share my favorite workouts with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Today’s at home workout is a full body Pilates workout. Pilates is one of my favorite types of exercise. It is great for those days when you just don’t feel like working out. Yet, I am always sore the next day.

Today my workout consists of many different short workouts from Blogilates. Cassey is so motivating, I love these workouts. You can do all of these workouts at one time, like I did this morning or if you are short on time you can split them up however you would like.

Each link takes you directly to the video, so just keep on clicking and before you know it your workout will be finished.

Today’s Workout:

Pop Cardio Carnage – 4 minutes (cardio warm up)

Inner Thighs and Runner Calves – 10 minutes

Inner Thigh Challenge – 4 minutes
