I am awake and aware of every precious moment around me.

Mantra for week –  I am awake and aware of every precious moment around me. 

As busy working ladies and moms sometimes our days just fly by. It is important to live in the moment. Cherish the memories, even the hard ones when it seems you just can’t seem to please your kids or significant other.

Try to slow down and be aware of every little thing going on around you. It will help you be more present and happy! Remember you have the choice.

Thanks for working out with me today.

We hope you enjoyed it! Let us know what was your favorite move.

See you in the next workout\

Does Lori still have diastasis recti? Some of your posts say that she healed it, and others say she has it, and I’m confused (and trying to figure out which workouts to follow as a result). Thanks!

Well she did heal it but she still considers herself having it, as it is always in the back of her mind and she doesn’t want to re-open it. Hopefully that makes sense.

Oh man that’s tough – living in constant fear of diastasis recti sounds pretty miserable (and also hilariously privileged). Has she considered therapy to work through the underlying issues? She should be happy she healed it and stop stressing about it so she can move on to bigger and better things!

She doesn’t stress over it to the degree I think you think she does. It is just in the back of her mind, she doesn’t overly stress over it and she has moved on and doing great things.

Hi there Michelle,
I learned about resistance bands some four months ago and although I havent done much with it, I must say it has been fun for the times that I have used and I am looking forward to using it fully in my routine workouts. I love how you do the lower body workout with it there.
Thanks for the share.

Cindy

I’ve been noticing some things that are hinting Lori is pregnant!
“…from my first pregnancy..”
Meaning you have a second pregnancy? ☺Share your big news!

But also I wanted to say that I only have a resistance band with the handles on the end (make sense? ) and I do your lunges by stepping on the band, crisscrossing the handles and ensuring my knees stay inside the crisscross. Hard to explain but for people who only have my type of band, they can still compete this workout! ????????

Thanks for the article. I love using resistance bands. They are easier to pack for trips then weights and I feel that the benefits are the same. 🙂

Hi girls! I stumbled across your blog recently and have been pretty obsessed I love the design, exercises, and recipes! I just wanted to say how inspiring you both are I feel like I know you just based on reading and listening to blog haha! I am especially inspired by Michelle who is has recovered from DR. I am a medical student and hopefully a future mom one day and your road to recovery really struck home with me. Thanks for being a great example and showing that you still achieve your goals with a “set-back” due to providing LIFE for someone else, just amazing!

THanks Janelle for the sweet words, we are so happy you found us. Now for the DR that was actually Lori not Michelle. Thanks again for the love and support!! xoxo
