30 Minute AMRAP & Frozen Firsts

Tire jumps

Thank you for all the birthday wishes for miss Jada! We had a fun day celebrating. Spencer was able to cut his work day short, to join us too! Jada helped me teach a stroller fitness class in the morning and got to socialize with her buddy afterwards. Yes. We have totally been working on the perfect squat position. Babies have the best form, don't they? The stroller classes are a great way for moms to socialize and get in a workout. We have to be pretty flexible with the … [Continue reading]

One Year Ago

One year ago, we welcomed Jada Ruth to the world. All 8 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches of our beautiful girl! The emotions. Oh, the emotions of seeing that little human you have been carrying inside your belly for +40 weeks for the very first time. Our hearts were bursting! Our lives are forever changed, and we couldn't be more blessed to have this bright, funny, inquisitive addition to our family. You make us laugh everyday Jada!

First Birthday Party!

030

On Sunday, we celebrated Jada's first birthday a few days early. This year absolutely flew by, as many of you said it would. How in the world are we celebrating our little girl's first birthday already?! We hosted a family brunch, timing it between the morning and afternoon naps. I told you guys I was simple, so flowers it was! Uncle Tanner loves to tease her! It was a gorgeous day, so I was glad to make use of our sun room again. After brunch, we gave Jada a break … [Continue reading]

It’s a Zoo Out There!

Omaha Zoo 2

This weekend was a whirlwind! Let's start with Friday. We took Jada to the Omaha Zoo this weekend! I taught a HIIT class in the morning and did a quick outfit change, so we could get there before afternoon nap time. Spencer's mom was able to visit us for a few days to celebrate Jada's first birthday (early), so we took advantage of time together. Jada enjoyed herself, especially the aquarium where you can get up close and personal with the sting rays. She really seemed to … [Continue reading]

New Outdoor Workout!

Wall Ball

This is the time of year to exercise outside! If you are like me and love to sweat, get outside. Use what you've got! I took my small group outside for a fun WOD using some uncommon tools. This tire is waaaaaaaaaaaay to heavy to flip (filled with concrete), so we found other ways to use it. The entire workout is posted below. Wall Ball One continuous movement of a squat to overhead toss (more like a push) of the medicine ball. The goal is to get the ball about 10 feet … [Continue reading]

Workout Selfies: Standard Practice?

PreWorkout Selfie

It's Friday! Jada and I had to pose for a pre-workout selfie to prove we actually were going to the gym. ;) On that note, what do you think of selfies? Sweaty selfies? I can't get myself to take one in the weight room because it feels so obvious. And, honestly, it's not the most flattering shot!  But, I find myself following others on Instagram that snap workout selfies. My favorite is Mankofit because her pics not only show off an amazing, muscular physique, but she usually shares … [Continue reading]
