Fitness Inspiration – The Workout Mamma

Image
I am usually scrounging the net for fitness blogs and enthusiasts, checking out personal weight loss journeys. And mostly my searches are for postpartum weight loss. In one such search I found the blog ,’The Workout Mamma’. I was impressed by the posts and certainly wanted to read the beginning which led me to the about section. I was in for a shock, for here I met the beautiful Tamara .
Her blog describes her as Christ follower wife to a firefighter, mother to Cadden, personal trainer, blogger and yoga Instructor.. But what makes her a true inspiration is way beyond all these titles. Her story is that of woman who is fighter. Her exceptional journey of fighting paralysis and getting back to being fit truly left all my excuses at shame. I sat at my desk reading her incredible recovery story, one straight read for a hour . It felt like I was reading fiction, but it was real. I had tears in my eyes when I read certain sections and smiles when I reached the end. The one question I asked …

Happy Post

This is a happy post cause I wanted to  share some happiness.
When I started the blog I mentioned how I was stuck in a rut professionally and needed to make some changes. The big news is that I have a new job,  professionally excellent and  its a big move getting me closer to my dream role.

Workout Updates - The Jillian DVD Rotation

This is gonna be a quick post .The last post I mentioned how I have changed the workout schedule and I happy that I made this change. The muscles are sore; I feel worked and love the pace. Jillian is a true task master and circuit trainings are amazing because you work multiple muscle groups at the same time with zero rest. There is so much packed in the 30 min or 50 min workouts that you achieve more in lesser time. Trying new dvds to workout at home has made me realize that I like fast paced workouts and circuit trainings works best on my body. Guess we all have things that work for us and some that don’t so whenever you chose a workout routine try everything and when you find something that works for you stick to it. Just a quick reminder of the schedule
