Staying active and working out is so important to me! I was a dancer for 14 years so being active was a big part of my life and now that I no longer dance I have to put in a little more effort to keep my body moving! I have always preferred working out at home over the gym, but since becoming a new Mom I don't have same luxury of running to the gym anytime I want! Today I'm sharing my top 7 favorite at home workouts! There's a few of my go-to workouts I've been loving for years and some new ones I've recently discovered!
30-Minute Cardio Dance and Yoga Hybrid Take Flight//
This is one of my fav workouts right now! It's such a fun mix of dance and yoga and really makes you sweat! Plus the trainer is amazing and so inspiring! She makes me want to jump and get my body moving! So not only do I just get a great workout, but I also get a little inspirational pick-me-up too!
45-Minute Workout From Selena Gomez's Trainer to Tone and Sculpt Your Entire Body//
This workout is intense and will leave you sore for days! I love this workout because it incorporates a lot of new moves I've never seem before, which keeps it fun and fresh while also bringing on the burn!
This Full-Body Barre Workout Keeps You Moving While You Sculpt//
Growing up I was a dancer so this barre workout is right up my ally! I love the combination of dance, pilates, & yoga, it sculpts and stretches your body! The routine and music makes me feel like I'm right back in dance class!
10 MINUTE BOLLYWOOD DANCE WORKOUT//
On those days I'm short on time I'll do this fun bollywood inspired dance workout! It is seriously so much fun and gets your body moving! The first time I did this workout I was questioning if I missed my calling as a bollywood dancer!
Feel-Good, Feel-Strong Yoga//
If you love yoga but are looking for something with a bit more burn, this workout is for you! This yoga routine gets your heart pumping and muscles working! It will leave your body feeling strong and sore!
30 MINUTE SELENA GOMEZ WORKOUT//
This is a go to workout for me! It gets the arms and the booty burning, but is still low impact! Great for those days when your not in the mood to jump around!
Killer 30-Minute Cardio-Boxing and Core Workout//
I am definitely not the boxing type, but I love this workout because it makes me feel strong and challenges my body in a new way!
Coffee is one of my favorite things in this world! I love the smell, I love the taste, hot or iced, I could drink it all day long! Unfortunately...I'm not a cheap coffee drink. I love my Starbucks and coffeehouse lattes... so gas station coffee doesn't quite cut it for me (thanks mom)! The problems is..my bank account doesn't agree with my high end taste in coffee! I've had to experiment a bit to find that perfect homemade latte that taste like it came straight from a coffeehouse! After many...many attempts I have found the one who my soul loves, the perfect homemade cinnamon vanilla latte! It's the perfect mix of cinnamon and sweet vanilla and is as creamy as can be (just the way I like it) and you can make it right in your own kitchen for a fraction of the cost of your fav Starbucks drink!
- 8oz. of your favorite hot coffee.
- 1/2 cup of half & half.
- 2 Tablespoons of Torani french vanilla syrup (you can get it at Walmart).
- A dash of cinnamon.
- Brew 8oz. of your favorite coffee. I use Starbucks house blend k-cups and brew on extra strong in my keurig.
- Froth half & half and cinnamon together in milk frother. If you don't have a milk frother then you can warm up the creamer in microwave and mix it in your blender till frothed.
- Add vanilla syrup to coffee and stir together.
- Pour your frothed milk over coffee, stir, and enjoy!
I'd love to hear what you think of it if you decide to try it, leave a comment below!
