Abs on abs on abs

So, many of you have asked about my daily workout routine, or what I do each day in terms of exercise, so I thought I would share with you what I do for my daily ab workout! Now, I definitely don't do all the exercises below, I usually pick 3-4 of the ab exercises that I have listed, and then finish with a 1 minute plank to wrap up the workout. Toned abs are something that I have always wanted to have, and something that does not happen easily or come naturally for me and my body. Let me just tell you that getting the abs you want does not come overnight! I have been busting my butt in the gym for about a year, and now more recently coupling that with eating better to finally see the results I have wanted with my abs. And I have to say that a giant part of it is eating, like I mean a giant part! I'm still not completely to where I want to be, but I am finally seeing a difference and am proud of myself. As with most things in life, getting more fit takes a lot of hard work and a CONSISTENT routine. Brod has said before that our habits and choices are what we become, and I think that definitely applies to our bodies and health. The funny thing is that Brod usually says that with a Mountain Dew in his hand haha! I have listed the details of my ab routine below, as well as included an inspiration board for active wear and shoes that I am loving right now because who can get enough active wear right now?! Am I right?! I have also included an inspiration board for home items. I receive tons of questions about where I get some of the items in my house and thought I would share some of the things that give me inspiration when I have styled my home in the past, and what I look at to bring into my home for the future. I love, love, love home items and turning the space we have into our home, fitting the space with items that fit our style, feel, and personality.

Hope you all enjoy this post and have a great Thursday! Follow your dreams and remember that our habits and choices play a big role in who we are and who we become.

  1. I totally need to do better on the eating healthy part, because it really IS the biggest part! And the hardest! But girl, you look AMAZING! If I didn't know you had kids, then I never in a million years would have guessed that you have carried two babies in that tummy! <3
