Pump Up The Volume

Okay, now that we got that out-of-the-way, let’s move on. In my humble opinion, music is a crucial element to a good workout. Here are a few of my favorites.

What songs do you work out to? Did any of those above make your list?

Tone Up Tuesday: Playground


That’s right,we are toning it up on the playground. Last night I was determined to get a workout in. I decided to kick off the evening with some dance moves in the kitchen as I jammed to some tunage and made dinner. Hey, you do what you have to do to get moving. 😉


After dinner, I had two options, spend some quality time playing with my little man before he had to go to bed or working out. Hmmm – why not combine the two. As my father would say, all you need is a little imagination.

We walked to the playground and actually ran from slide, to swing, to teeter-totter and so on. I attempted to do chin ups on the bars (attempted being the key word).  And they also had this rope ladder that was so unstable that I could feel my core muscles working to keep me straight.

A two-hour “work  out” flew by and felt like I was just playing. Simply put, it was AWESOME! Rather than just walk home, little man and I decided to skip; that got my heart racing and my little one to giggle at his mamma skipping beside him. 🙂 

When we got home I did a little research and found that there are so many exercises you can do at the park. And some of these are pretty hardcore.



This girl kicks butt!


Oh yeah – we’re going to step this up a notch.

Now it is your turn. What did you do to get up and moving? Are you staying on track, eating better? Pipe up and BE HONEST! 🙂
