Before I had my kiddo and even while I was pregnant, I was able to get at least 3-4 solid dedicated workouts in a week.  I was also teaching multiple barre classes a week.  I felt strong and there is seriously no better feeling than when your workout is done right?  I have really struggled with getting back into fitness.  I haven’t made it a priority.  Whenever I have a free second, I am flipping laundry, trying to tidy up my house, or working on my many jobs.  I really miss the “me time” that was going to a barre class or gym by myself.  I have really tried but it is just not realistic at this time.  So, I have been trying to fit in mini workouts during the day.  I will hold Patrick and do three sets of squats.  Or when I’m waiting for water to boil I will do some standing leg barre work.  It is not the same but I swear it is helping get my legs back in shape.

I have made it a priority to do one solid at home workout a week.  I usually stream a barre class on demand or find a Pinterest printable. Really anything to get the heart rate up for 20 minutes at least.  The other thing that has changed is pretty much five days a week we take a 30-45 minute walk as a family.  I know Patrick loves getting the fresh air and its time away from the screens for Mark and me to connect.

I have always been really picky about my sneakers.  My mother will tell you she would NEVER go sneaker shopping with me when I was a teenager because I didn’t like how the toe box looked on this one, or the colors weren’t right on this one.  I was super annoying about the whole process.  Now I just want something that gives me the proper support and I can walk miles in.  I picked up these ASICS GT-2000 7 sneakers from Zappos and they seriously feel like I am walking on clouds.  They have great inner heel support and are very lightweight.  Plus, they are super cute so that always helps.  We live very close to the water and Bayshore Blvd which has one of the longest stretches of a walkable sidewalk.  It is so nice to catch the breeze off the water as we are strolling looking at all the gorgeous houses.

The best part about these sneaks is that they are from Zappos.  I always get so excited when I have the opportunity to work with them again!  I have had many campaigns over the years and I always jump at the chance with the opportunity arises.  Their customer service is hands down the best.  I ordered these shoes at like 4 pm and they were at my doorstep in the morning.  I have no idea how they are able to do that!  If you ever have a problem they take care of it with zero hassle.  I am also part of the loyalty program that gives you points for writing reviews, logging in, and your purchases.

Having the right equipment for your workouts is so important.  How often do you go through running shoes?  I definitely recommend checking out the ASICS line.  They have great quality shoes that come in a ton of great styles/colors.  Are you a Zappos fan?  Tell me some of your favorite customer service stories!

    Asics are my go to for workout shoes! I didn’t realize that a lot of my pains when running were because of the wrong shoes and then my mom got me a pair and I’ve been hooked since!

    I always go to ASICS when I need a new pair of workout shoes. They’re the only ones that fit me right, and are comfortable the entire workout. I struggled so much to be consistent with my workouts since having Zoe. I’m finally at a place where I get in a workout *almost* 5 days a week. But those happen at 4am and usually don’t last longer than 15-30 minutes before I have to hop in the shower and get ready for the day. But I figure that is better than nothing!

  14. Lindsay says:

    I think I have ordered three pairs of this shoe always from Zappos over the years. They are so awesome!

  15. Ruthie says:

    I love shopping Zappos online! I love this entire look on you!!

    I love that you’re getting in exercise both at home and out with your family! I know it’s cheesy, but my husband and I go play Pokemon Go for a couple of hours several times a week – which has us walking for quite some time. It feels good to get outside and just be moving!

    I love how you’ve incorporated your work-out routine to fit your busy lifestyle, vs. making it stressful on yourself!
