KGOAL? What’s that?

This is not what it looks like.

But it does go where you think it goes 😂

This is the KGOAL – and it’s designed to help you kegal properly haha (and to make it fun!). All of us mommas, especially those of us who run, know how important pelvic floor strength is.

How’s it work? Well, it’s a device and free app that makes pelvic floor exercise fun and interactive. It gives you visual and tactile feedback and even has a diagram to show you how to properly engage your pelvic floor.

And it’s totally comfortable. It’s designed like a balloon or pillow – you can “deflate” it to insert and “inflate” to get the perfect fit for your body!

It’s a cool little device and I definitely suggest you try it. I cant wait to get back to using it after I’m all healed from Vivs birth.

Labor playlists!

If you know anything about me – it’s that I’m all about music. I never get tired of it and could listen all day long. So since I’ve found out we were having a baby – I have been on it as far as planning some labor playlists. I have two – one with upbeat songs and one with relaxing songs. Based off of my moods during labor with LB – this is what I’ll need haha.

I wanted to share what I have so far – but no judgement. Yal know I’m a ratchet.

Weekly update – week 18

I’m 18 weeks pregnant and everyone has been fussing at me to get more than 5 hours of sleep 😂😂. So I have but it’s cut into my blog time.

As a quick update – I feel awesome and cute. I only got dressed 2x this week but that’s ok 😂. I also organized under the sink in the bathroom in my nesting escapades.

Started my next fitness program and I’m feeling great. This week was only 15 minutes – next week goes to 25.

Anywho, a real post will come soon but for now – Here’s some pics of my pregnancy flyness over the past couple weeks.

Fitness plans! 17 weeks

Yal. I’m getting big – so people have been asking me about my next fitness plans.

Honestly I still feel great – I haven’t started to feel off balance yet. Other than being sleepy I don’t feel much different. So my plans haven’t changed!

On 10/22 I’m starting a newly revamped program called Shift Shop with some of my new challengers :). We are starting out with a prep week and then going into the program.

What is SHIFT SHOP?
SHIFT SHOP is Chris Downing’s breakthrough conditioning program that has helped thousands of people of all fitness levels see maximum results in minimal time. The program starts you off slow, alternating between cardio and strength workouts-then gradually increases the intensity week by week.

Starting Oct. 22, the SHIFT SHOP will incorporate the Proving Grounds – two new workouts that score your performance against the clock with a series of challenges that test your speed and strength. You’ll swap out one Speed workout and one Strength workout for Proving Grounds workouts every week.

Workouts are from 15 – 45 minutes in length and a modifier is ready.

Not sure it’s for you? Try a free sample workout here!

Contact me to get everything you need to get started on 10/22! There are currently 4 spots available for this group.

Favorite Snacks :)

I’m basically a snack machine lately. I feel like all I do is eat! So I figured the least I could do was let yal know some of my favorite healthy snacks.

Honey Roasted Almonds. Omg I’ve been tearing these UP.

 

ants on a log

Ants on a log. Only way I got my veggies in AT ALL when I was nauseous.

shakeology

Of course my shakeology. In all of it’s variations. My favorite thing everrrrr because my OB has approved it AND let me know I don’t have to take nasty prenatals :).

 

cheese its

I’m all about some cheese its lately. I know they aren’t healthy – but they kept my nausea down early on.

I could go on but it’s time for me to get LB from preschool.

What have you been snacking on?

My next fitness program..

Since I finished LIIFT4 it’s time to pick a new program! I took last week off since I was in Orlando Thursday-Sunday for a leadership retreat (more on that later this week). I knew it was time to pick a new program, so I took a few things into account:

  1. Time. LIIFT4 was 8 weeks. I wanted to do something shorter than 8 weeks BUT with workouts around 30 mins or less a day.
  2. Meal plan. I’ve been following 2B mindset LOOSELY but I need something strict right now. I haven’t had my recommended amount of veggies in weeks. It’s time I get back at it.
  3. Limited core work. I won’t be able to lay on my back and do core work much longer.
  4. Not a lot of equipment – I want to do this in my bedroom so I don’t have to convince myself to go to the basement to get started. Continue reading “My next fitness program..”
