Move It, Move It

Hello Monday! How was the weekend? Thought I’d share the second installment of our backyard boot camp workout.

First off, today was an early morning of Strollerjam classes. I fueled up on the way there with my favorite morning mocha and this little guy.

Oh man, LOVE these bars. There’s this peanut butter filled middle and it goes sooooo well with a strong mocha. Smile

Now I juts polished off this Flatout wrap with egg substitute, fat free feta, and spinach. I almost cowed down the whole thing before getting a picture. ha!

Oh, and really quickly, last night I made a different version of STUFT Fro Yogurt . It was 1/2 cup FAGE 0% mixed with a little sugar free vanilla pudding mix and 1 Splenda packet and a little splash of almond extract. I mixed that with 1/2 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed) and stuck it in the freezer for about an hour or so. Put it on top of 2 (yes, 2- it was a LONG day yesterday) double chocolate Vitatops. Oh man, delicious. Didn’t get a photo of it though, but I’m sure I’ll be making it again soon. Hmm… maybe tonight?

Okay, on to the workout from the other day. I’m posting this because I know as a mom it’s so hard to find time to workout. I try to get creative and get the boys involved. They love it (the high fives, the jumps, etc.) It’s a fun family activity and I feel like I’m actually getting a pretty good workout in even though I only have a limited amount of time. Don’t they look like they’re having fun?

Backyard Calorie Blast with a BOSU

Here’s the BOSU (and the handy jump rope).

And the BOSU with the boys.IMG_1985

BOSU stands for “Both Sides Utilized” and there are soooo many amazing exercises you can do with this. LOVE, LOVE LOVE it!

I guess I’m not the only one. Smile

Here was the workout:

(It’s a modification of the original Quickie Backyard Calorie Blast.)

  • 10 stair laps
  • 100 jumps with the jump rope
  • 20 froggy jumps (10 one direction and 10 back)
  • 1 minute of mountain climbers of the BOSU
  • 20 BOSU slow jacks

I went through it about 4 times. I was hoping to do one more, but the boys were done being outside.

Mountain climbers- Turn the BOSU ball over so the black side is up. IMG_1987

Put your hands on the black part. (I like to stick my thumbs in the little grooves on the side so my hands don’t slip.) You can kind of get the idea with this picture if you look at my reflection. (Which wasn’t very easy to take by the way.)

For the BOSU slow jacks you want the blue side up. Start with both feet on top. IMG_1990

Jump so both feet land on the sides. Make sure to keep your knees bent and try to land SOFTLY.

Then jump back on top with both feet. If it’s too hard at first you can step one foot at a time and build up to jumping. Make sure to keep your knees bent when you land both on the ground and on the BOSU. These are pretty hard, but oh so much fun! Smile

Okay, I better head out. (Well, to the boys’ bedroom and then to the kitchen at least. They boys are waking up from their nap.)

I leave you with a little jump roping with Judah.

Have a good one! Remember the quote from last night’s post? Man, I’m really living by that today because I am TIRED and need to gear up for teaching 3 classes tonight at the Y! Yikes. Hmmm… what will be my next “fuel” for the day? What’s your favorite “fuel”? Smile

    I love the Bosu. I need to use it more in my training because it really does such a good job.
