Happy Friday Friends!
For those of you who are new to my blog, I had a sweet baby girl earlier this year. After I had her, I was eager to lose the baby weight I had gained during my pregnancy and as soon as I got the approval from my doctor, I started exercising again. I started off slow at first with low intensity cardio and pilates. About a month later, I went in full throttle doing cardio 5-6 times a week for 45-60 minutes and also did weights 4-5 times a week for 20-30 minutes. Since then I’ve lost all the baby weight so yesterday, I finally decided it was time to switch it up a notch and focus on building more muscle. I mean, what perfect time to set new goals with a new month and year upon us! So for me, this means I will spend less time doing cardio and more time lifting weights!
Too much cardio can increases the risk of losing muscle mass but weight training builds muscles and keeps your body tight and toned. Plus, it’s always good to change up your routine!
New Work-Out Routine
Monday – Legs & Glutes and 30 minutes of cardio

Chady Dunmore sets a perfect example as a fit mom and huge inspiration to me!
I am really loving P28′s bagels and had another one for breakfast! I topped my bagel with a little tasty topping. 1 tablespoon each of almond butter, nf plain greek yogurt and chocolate casein all mixed together and topped with 1/2 banana.
I had the same thing for lunch yesterday, as I did on Wednesday, gotta finish off that soup. I did change up the sandwich though, instead of a turkey sandwich, I had a pesto and laughing cow cheese sandwich, super yum!
I used half of a P28 wrap (those babies are ginormous, let me tell ya’!) to make myself a Mexican pizza for dinner. I cooked the wrap in the oven so it would get crisp and then started with my toppings, 1.) taco sauce 2.) black beans 3.) leftover chili verde (but you can use chicken in lieu of) 4.) sliced bell peppers 5.) jalapenos 6.) low-fat cheese
One word – AMAZING!!
Question: Do you do more weights, cardio or you equally do both?
