So a mama friend of mine, who is an amazing mama to two insanely cute little boys and is also a Stroller Strides instructor, Body Back Instructor and a Cross fit mama got me hooked on this insane Kale superfood salad from . . . . . COSTCO!!!!
I can't even begin to tell you how good it is, you HAVE to try it for yourself! It has 7 superfoods in it: kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, dried cranberries, chicory, roasted pumpkin seeds and a poppyseed dressing. The cranberries and pumpkin seeds are in a separate bag and so is the dressing so you don't need to have those if you want to add your own dressing. Yum yum yum!!!
Mr. Hotpants has also stepped up his health game, he has ALWAYS been healthy, but recently he has gotten more into the antioxidants and such. He makes us a morning smoothie that is fantastic and gives me such a great start to my day. Here is what he uses:
organic raw almonds
organic raw walnuts
organic hemp protein powder
Another thing I have been working on is my playlist, I seriously love running/skipping/jumping/dancing if I have some good beats! . . . here are some of my fav's right now:
Blurred Lines (Robin Thicke)
Shake It Out (Florence + The Machine)
Feel this Moment (Pitbull & Cristina Aguilera)
Scream & Shout (Will.i.am & Britney)
Burn (Ellie Goulding)
Call your Girlfriend (Robyn)
I took this photo on our Palm Springs weekend (after a few cocktails!) and I wanted to share it because as always I want to keep things real and honest on here. This is me, almost 2yrs to the day, post 2nd baby. I have to say I didn't really try that much during the first year after Ms. H was born because I thought it would just come off like it did after Ms. Em but it didn't . . . I blame age, hormones and not enough sleep because I worked out (not a lot) but more consistently than I ever had for the past few years. But recently I realized I needed to up my game because I wasn't exactly a spring chicken anymore! So for the past year I have been doing a Zumba class on Saturday mornings, a Piyo class on Sunday mornings and recently I have added running 2-3 miles at least 2-3 times a week. In addition to all this cardio I try to squeeze in a few sessions a week of Tracy Andersons arm workout, ab workout and legs. I have started to see some changes in my body (finally!!) after about a year of nothing changing . . . I plan on keeping with this plan, eating clean and doing some juice cleanses . . . I will keep you guys posted on my progress!
