Hill Sprints and Lulu Rewards

having kids makes staying fit harder, it is inevitable. but having kids doesn’t have to be the end all of a mom’s fitness life.  before continuing, i will admit that while i plan on having kids eventually, i do not have any today.  so no, i do not have a personal experience with combining motherhood with fitnesshood.  but yes, i do have many mothering role-models to look up to as examples.  one of which, is sister. 

through her, i have witnessed how difficult it can be to stay fit as a mom with young children.  but also how important.  and when a workout is in need, there is nothing like a little creativity, and a reward of lululemon, to keep any mom motivated.

this week, sister and i missed our yoga class as she couldn’t get her 2.5 year old, and her 8 month old fed and ready in time. i’m sure that is a regular occurrence in the life of a mom.  but rather than giving up on a work-out all together, sister called me up, and we got creative.

with baby des in tow, we headed to kleiner park for some hill sprints and put together a mommy and me (and auntie) work out.  it looked a little something like this:


mom fitness, fit mom, run, running, sprints, hill sprints, exercise, sisters, motivation, inspiration


sprints in general are one of my favorite workouts to get my heart pumping.  and adding a hill to the equation, makes it even better!  sister and i alternated between running, and entertaining baby.  we did 5 rounds in total. we burned a lot of calories, we earned a lot of giggles, and we had a lot of fun.

baby des even wore her purple bow for the day to match my jacket and give me added support for the work out.  she’s the sweetest.

i was rewarded with sweet desie snuggles.

sister was rewarded with lululemon.

can you believe she has never owned anything lulu? it was about time that changed.  so post work-out we walked over to lulu and got her all geared up.

i admire those active moms out there, and someday i aspire to be one.  but in the meantime, i hope to inspire others by being an active auntie.

today, i am linking up with Jill Conyers for Fitness Friday. where you, (and i), can find an endless amount of inspirational women living a healthy life.
