ClassPass is currently in cities across the country including, NYC, Boston, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Seattle. Lucky for us San Diegans, ClassPass just launched in our beautiful cities and the list of local studios participating is impressive!

ClassPass also allows you to build a workout routing full of variety visiting studios of all types including, barre, yoga, pilates, indoor cycling, bootcamps, martial arts, strength training and more.

ClassPass was nice enough to let me test out this program for one month and I have my first class at Studio Barre La Costa this week! I’ve also scheduled myself at Yoga 6 and BodyRok in north county, San Diego. I’ll report back at the end of the month and let you know which studios were my favorite. So far, the ClassPass site is super simple to use and conveniently maps out your fitness schedule for the week. I love the variety of studios participating!

Spring has Sprung: 5 New Goals

Happy first day of spring! There’s something about the first day of spring that just screams new beginnings. The flowers blooming, the birds chirping, Tucker chasing the birds that are chirping…

I always like to set little goals for myself right around this time, because, let’s be honest, my New Year’s resolutions don’t always stick at first (I think everyone needs a good couple of months after the holidays to recover and regroup).

So, in no particular order, here is my list of 5 goals for Spring 2014:

1. Exercise More: I know,I know, SO predictable. But after my Fit, Fab Feb, I pretty much fell off the wagon. With this warm weather upon us, thinking about getting back into a bikini after having a baby is probably the scariest thing I’ve faced since a man with a chain saw chased me at a haunted house two Halloween’s ago (and that was TERR-I-FY-ING)! That being said, I MUST find the time to workout. And “finding the time” has come to mean, incorporating Blake into my workouts. Here are some great links featuring workouts that incorporate your baby. Blake and I tried a few of these and Blake laughed the whole time – so much fun!

2. Entertain in our Backyard: Pre-baby I use to love to entertain at our house. Strike that, pre-pregnancy! I tried to entertain a few times while I was prego and the whole, being too tired to enjoy the party and not being able to indulge in an adult-beverage with my guests, really just put a kibosh on the whole thing. But, now that Blake is a little older and not crying every hour, I can’t wait to host some fun spring and summer parties in our backyard! After finding this awesome lantern at HomeGoods and digging out this cool book from the closet, I’m ready to start planning some par-ties!

3. Plan Summer Vacations: Some of the best memories from my childhood were while we were on vacation. I can’t wait to take Blake on so many fun adventures, exploring new cities and countries. I want her to know how to get dirty while roughing it camping but also how to dress up for afternoon tea in Paris. (Check out more of my hopes for her, written before she was even born). I just can’t wait to show her the world!  This summer we’ll be taking her to Lake Tahoe, Colorado and the Outer Banks to start. So much planning, so little time!

4. Launch my Business: It’s official – I won’t be returning to Hyatt after my maternity leave. After living and breathing that job for 4 years, it’s time for me to take the next step professionally and launch my own marketing consulting business. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but finally life seems to be just where it should be in order to take this next step. It will also allow me a flexible schedule to be a full-time “Mommy” to Miss Blake. So, with one client strong, I’m launching KH Marketing in the next couple of weeks. Maybe I’ll even throw a Launch Party to also help with my goal #2?

5. Teach Blake How to Walk: Juuust kidding – the child is not even 4 months old! But, I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next. Her belly laughing and now, rolling over are so adorable I just don’t know how she’s going to top those. (Somehow, I know she will). :)

#FitFabFeb Workout #5 – Circuit Training at Home

Well, my friends, we are on the last stretch of #FitFabFeb! I’m happy to report that I have lost 3 pounds this month and feel stronger and more energized than I did in January (this might also have to do with the fact that Blake is now sleeping 6 hours straight – maybe it’s a combination of the two). My husband even said to me the other day, “Look at your 6 pack!” – HA! I laughed because I knew he was just humoring me, but I do know it’s under there, somewhere, and I will find it…someday. 😉

Let’s end the month strong with this workout to add into your weekly routines:

Circuit Training at home

And just because February is over and #MarchFitFab doesn’t sound as catchy, this doesn’t mean that we have to lose our momentum! I plan to keep on this fitness track and will continue to post occasional motivations here and there on this blog.

In case you missed them, here are all 5 circuit training workouts from our #FitFabFeb. As always, happy sweating (and cursing and wincing and whining…)

#FitFabFeb Workout #4 – Circuit Training at Home

Wowza, I have been lagging with posting more #FitFabFeb workouts. Sorry, I’ve been eating instead (sigh). BUT, I’m back on track this week and ready to finish the month off strong – let’s do this!

Here’s a new workout to mix into your routines:

#FitFabFeb Workout #3 – Circuit Training at Home

TGIF! I’m so happy to hear that many of you are following along with #FitFabFeb and completing these circuits at home! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been quite soar after each one. Finding the motivation to work out at home every day is definitely hard, but after each workout I always feel like a million bucks (and Blake loves watching me jump around like a crazy person – pure entertainment for her).

Must.Keep.Going!

Here’s the 3rd circuit to start intermixing into your weekly routines:

Have a great weekend!

 

#FitFabFeb – Week 2 of Circuit Training at Home

Continuing with my #FitFabFeb month dedicated to getting back in shape and toning it up for summer, it’s time for a new circuit workout routine!

I received my 2014 Victoria’s Secret Swim catalog in the mail yesterday and had a minor freak out when I realized swimsuit season is just around the corner!

Is it just me or was this catalog sent out early this year? Either way, it gave me the motivation I needed to complete this next circuit of exercises and I am FEELIN’ THE BURN, BABY (in a good way). Good luck!

Fit and Fab February

It’s hard to believe that February is just a few days away! I’m personally declaring this month Fit and Fab February because, (a.) I love alliteration and (b.) I need to kick my butt into gear and start working out to get back to my pre-pregnancy shape. I’m very thankful that breastfeeding has helped me speedily shed the pounds, but now it’s time to TONE IT UP, sister! (Not to be confused with “turn it up”…shudder). I must admit it’s quite hard to muster up enough energy to exercise after pregnancy, especially when you’re sleep deprived! But in these desperate times, I always look to Britney Spears for motivation:

Exercise after pregnancy

Because I don’t have a nanny to watch the babe while I go spend time at an actual gym, this workout plan is going to have to happen in my own home. So, with that, I took to Pinterest and found numerous circuits that I can easily do in the comfort of my own home (and with baby girl watching me like I’ve lost my mind from her monkey bouncer).

I’ve made myself a calendar of workouts because, (a.) I come from the corporate world where if it’s not on my calendar then it doesn’t exist and (b.) to help further motivate and keep me on track. I’ll be posting my circuits on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with hashtag: #FitFabFeb if you’d like to follow along.

Here’s the first Circuit of the month to kick it off on February 1st:

And here’s the recommended song to play with this circuit: Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive featuring Kendrick Lamar (still obsessing over this performance from the Grammy’s).

Happy sweating! :)
