My Favorite Work Outs and Why

In all honesty I do not like working out! But I know it’s good for me. Whenever I start working out I have more energy during the day and I sleep better at night. So I do make it a priority in my life. I also want our kids to grow up seeing Peter and me taking care of our health as a lifestyle not as a chore. 

I have come to learn I like don’t like workouts that are time consuming, going to the gym or cost money. I also get bored really fast. As soon as I finish a DVD program I wont want to keep doing the same thing. 

So what works for a person who doesn’t go to the gym, doesn’t pay money, and wants a good work out that isn’t too time consuming? 

I love a going on walks and catching up with a friend. I don’t feel like it’s cardio when it’s fun.



I use this workout program called fitness blender. It’s free! And you modify it to meet your needs. This kind of program is awesome for busy lives who want to stay or get healthy.  I also want to try some mommy and baby work outs I saw on Pinterest. 

What works best for you?

Do you like equipment? The Gym? Long or short workouts? Do you like to work out at a certain time of day or are you flexible? 




Welcome to my little green boutique blog! 

I am so excited to get this started! 

For a long time now I’ve been thinking of how I can share my personal health journey, encourage others, and share some of my favorite health products.  With baby on the way I was wanting to do something that will be super flexible and fun. I am also an introvert who loves writing. With a lot brain storming I have come up with the idea of this blog. 

My biggest hope for my readers as that you are all encouraged to start or continue on your health journey.

My health journey began about four years ago when I got into running. I would run a few days a week. My now husband became a workout buddy of mine. We would do insanity. After we were married I did my first detox and lost 7 inches. We did the Tough Mudder and we make it a tradition to run the Hot Chocolate Run every year.

I am eager to hear about all your journeys.
