Day 4- GNC’s Santa’s Slim Legs Workout and Probiotics

 

Thursday’s Workout:

Morning- Quick 3 mile run on the treadmill

Night- Taught 40 minute HIIT class at gym

Taught Group Strength Training (full body workout with weights and resistance bands)

I wore my silly STUFT Mama shirt yesterday. Classy.

2012-12-06 19.31.37

Oh and hey, what do you know, the mirror was dirty and the writing on my shirt was backwards. Ha ha. Oh well.

 

I feel like it’s been way too long since I’ve showed a picture of a breakfast salad so here’s mine from yesterday.

2012-12-06 09.44.41

(In the salad- an egg and egg whites, spinach, chicken apple sausage and roasted kabocha squash.)

Oh, and here’s some roasted broccoli slaw and roasted brussel sprouts (along with mushrooms, chicken, marinara, fresh basil and just a tad of crushed red pepper) because it’s been way too long since you’ve seen that too.

2012-12-06 22.03.57

You’re welcome. He he.

 

And here’s what Joaquin’s been up to the last 24 hours.

2012-12-06 09.58.342012-12-06 11.16.43

Yeah, this guy is nonstop friends. I wonder why I’m tired all the time. Ha.

 

Okay.

This will be quick. Things are crazy here (obviously). I can’t focus at the moment and I think I might need another sugar free dark chocolate peppermint mocha.

I have a million things to do. I’m guessing there’s a lot of you that are in the same boat.

So……..

this is DAY 4 of STUFT Mama’s favorite things holiday giveaways.

I’ll save us all a little time.

I’ve got a little workout video for you to do. You know, since working out is one of my favorite things. It’s especially important this time of year to make sure we take time (even if it’s only a couple minutes) to move. Here’s a simple little legs workout for you.

All you need is a set of 5-10 pound dumbbells.

Here’s the workout.

Santa's Slim Leg's Workout

Here’s the video so we can do the workout together. It’s quick. It’ll get your legs burning and you’ll feel that much better after you do it.

Smile

The video quality needs a little help. Dang I hope Santa brings me a new camera. Wouldn’t that be awesome? I guess miracles can happen. Ha.

Workout those legs with these three easy moves.#livewellnow

 

 

And…

since it’s really important this time of year to stay on top of your health, I think you might need some GNC probiotics.

clip_image001

I’ve got STUFT Daddy taking them and I’ve been taking them for over a couple months now. I love them.

They’re a part of my daily GNC supplements.

2012-12-04 15.16.43

I have some I want to give you.

GNC Probiotics Ultra 5 Probiotic Complex with Fiber – Mixed Berry

Yep. These are for you. They retail for $24.99.

  44. 44

    probiotics is something i really want to take more of, but poor girls excuse of i take them when i can afford them. i wish i could take them more often, because i did notice a change in my “mobility” when i was taking them and loved it.

    i’ll be working this weekend, but will definitely take advantage of my nights to relax with a nice glass of wine!

  83. 83
    Jessica Rodriguez says:

    Unfortunately I am not taking any probiotics at the moment! Not because I don’t want to but because i am currently a 20 year old college student in my junior year of a nursing program. With this being said I do not have time to work and I feel guilty asking my parents for more money because they already do so much for me. It would be so nice to have probiotics at the moment because finals week is bringing upon lots of stress and little sleep. My immunity is shot :( This weekend I think it is so important to take an hour out of my studying to go to the gym and sweat out some toxins! I love working out and challenging myself. After a good workout i feel so refreshed and ready to go. This along with taking some time out of my day to spend some quality mother daughter bonding time is what helps me relax and not have a full blown anxiety attack from these stacks of notecards i must memorize!! I would love to add probiotics into my diet and If i won It would be so appreciated :) Thank you!!

  84. 84

    I did a cycling & weights class on Friday, Yoga & the elliptical on Saturday, and then ran the Dallas Marathon Relay yesterday after not being able to run for an entire 3 months due to a tight IT Band. I was so happy I made it without any problems! I’m a sucker for spin classes & running as I see you are too! Living a healthy and balanced life is what keeps me going. (: I take the TriFlex pack from GNC for my joints & I do love probiotics!! So, I tweeted @ChaeleyBarber . Have a wonderful day!!
