DETAILS: SPORTS BRA | SHORTS | WEIGHTS
Staying active is pretty easy when you are chasing after rambunctious tots all day long. However, there are days where I end up staying in my workout clothes pretty much all day long, after leaving the gym (yeah I know, sounds ugh, but hitting the gym at 5 am before the kids wake up is already a daunting task in itself).
With that said, there are a few stylish, yet comfy staples I like to keep in my workout rotation, just because I know I can still head to the grocery store or to the park with my kids even if I have them on.
- Cropped Leggings: These are basically all my wardrobe is made of at the moment! While I love the feel of Old Navy brand work out gear, I also love the cropped leggings from Ivy Park. If you don’t mind a bit of a splurge on a great pair that you can literally wear almost every day (hey! don’t judge me), these are great as well.
- Sports Bra: I won’t even lie, I have done nothing but live in sports bras since the birth of kid number 3! While Ivy Park, once again has the best sports bras for me, I also love these from Target.
- Top: Any type of lightweight top would be ideal. I am a huge fan of the NIKE BREATHE tops since they are so lightweight. Also, because I don’t like tight fitting tops, this drop hole tank is absolutely perfect!
- Shoes: Good shoes will make or break you (literally). It’s always good to invest in a new pair of shoes as often as possible ( at least every 6-8 months). You either opt for shoes on the higher end such as these or on the lower end of the price point such as these. I have both pairs and they are both extremely comfortable!

There’s nothing worse than wanting to exercise, but not really wanting to. You know what I mean, you’ve psyched yourself up, you even got dressed, but then it’s kind of like eh.
Summer is here, and if you’re like me I prefer meals that a quick and easy to prepare so that I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with the kids! Visit me over at The Fit Fotographer for our list of healthy pizza recipes the whole family will enjoy.

Working out consistently is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life. My sister and co-editor of this blog and for The Fit Fotographer, Nicole, seemed to have it all figured out as far as a workout schedule is concerned. Her weight loss journey over the last two years has inspired me to get healthy, however, I am having a harder time than what I thought I would. Being a parent of young children it can be hard to always be able to get a workout in. I did a short post on a quick way to workout when you can’t, you can read it here.
So I am terrible when it comes to working out. I start and then I stop, and its like an endless cycle until I just stop all together. Being with my children 24/7 doesn’t make it easier either. So I took a cue from my sister’s post over at her Fit Fotograper blog and decided that when its our family movie time, I would get in at least a little workout, and gradually get in, where I can fit in from there!
