But, what if you could get a great workout from your own home without the fees or the slight feelings of apprehension? What if you could master some of the gizmos and gadgets that once looked somewhat foreign?

If you are on a mission get fit then you know that a good fitness routine and healthy eating go hand-in-hand. Eating balanced meals are one thing, but making sure you are snacking smart is just as important. Snacks are a great opportunity to get in some extra fiber, vitamins, minerals and eating more frequently helps to boost your metabolism, but not any old snack will do! If you are as busy as we are, then you need a snack to eat on the go that doesn’t require a lot of prep but also one that tastes great- and these no bake PB & J energy bites hit all of those marks. They are incredibly easy to make, full of natural and healthy ingredients and delicious- and really that’s the most important part!
After giving birth, the last thing most of us are thinking about is exercise. And, for good reason: your body has been through the ringer the last nine months — not to mention the marathon of labor and the exhausting nature of life with a newborn!
But after you’ve healed (and been cleared for exercise by your OB!), a gentle workout routine may be just what you need to begin to refresh, strengthen and re-energize! But, with a newborn, leaving for a date at the gym is not really a feasible option. So, you need something you can either do during nap time, or with your baby.

Time is of the essence when you are a mom of a tiny, toddling on-the-go human that doesn’t quite yet understand the simple bliss of just sitting still for one moment.

Discovering new and exciting ways to interact and play with your child, while accomplishing some of those daily to do’s are a great way to not only cross off the tasks on your list faster, but also help your child grow and develop into a fabulous, well-adjusted, and in this case, a very fit little one. A beginner’s tabata style workout with your toddler is the perfect way to leave you both glistening in sweat and full of giggles.
