Athletic conditioning workout (no equipment needed)

Good morning! How are you guys doing? I must admit I am dragging a bit this week but it’s 100 percent my fault because I stayed out way too late on Monday night at my friend Lauren’s house for an impromptu girls’ night.

Okay let’s move on from that little tangent and talk about Tuesday!

I snoozed through my usual 5 a.m. Banana bread with chocolate chips alarm clock on Tuesday morning since I didn’t get to sleep until close to 1 a.m. Bananas for banana bread on Monday night and so I started the day feeling behind on life.

I eventually got out of bed a little after 6 a.m. Whole wheat banana bread and made myself a cup of coffee with collagen to sip on as I reheated two slices of a frittata to eat at the computer with some sparkling water while I responded to emails.

We made it out the door after some morning playtime and Chase enthusiastically said hi to his friends at Burn Boot Camp childcare while I quickly scooted out for a workout with my friend Lauren.

A pyramid style athletic conditioning workout was on the agenda for the day and it was a sweaty one!

It was also a workout you could easily replicate at home, as ball slams were the only exercise that required any equipment and you could simply substitute 40 bodyweight squats or jumps squats for that exercise.

In between each line of the pyramid we went outside to run a decreasing number of laps around the gym building and if you’re looking to duplicate the running portion of this workout, each building lap noted on the right side of the pyramid took about 30 seconds to complete, so 5 building laps would be about two and a half minutes of running.

Once my workout was done, I headed back into childcare to scoop Chase up and Lauren and I brought our kiddos to Gymboree where we met up with Carrie and Laura for a rockin’ good time with all of our toddlers.

Lately Chase has been really great about playing with his trains or reading books in the kitchen by himself (near me) when we arrive home from our morning activities which is pretty sweet because his solo(ish) play gives me a little bit of time to clean up around the house and get started on dinner prep for the evening. Banana banana bread Of course his solo play is peppered with plenty of calls for attention from Mama, but any chance I have to do something even remotely productive when Chase is awake feels like a small gift! Chase also loves when I ask him to help me with something (can this desire to help stay forever and ever, please?), so I asked him to “help” me pick out napkins and props for some blog photos I snapped after he went down for his nap.

Once Chase was asleep, I hopped in the shower before heading back downstairs to make a recipe and take the corresponding photos for the blog before it was computer tiiiime.

Ryan arrived home earlier than usual thanks to a doctor’s appointment he had on his calendar, so we were thrilled to have a little more time with him before the sun went down before dinner. Chocolate chip banana bread We took advantage of the sunlight and leashed Sadie up for a short family walk.

We stopped to say hi to a neighbor’s friendly dogs and while Chase was thrilled to see his furry friends, Sadie was awfully jealous and made a blockade with her body between Ryan and the two fluffy dogs which cracked us up!

Before making our way back home, we stopped by the park for some playtime and fun in the dirt.

Playtime also included plenty of breaks to stop and look at airplanes in the sky for our transportation-obsessed little dude.

By the time we made it home, we were all more than ready for some food. Banana bread recept Thankfully dinner last night was easy peasy! I simply paired some Easy Baked Miso Chicken Thighs with quinoa and apple slices and we dug in.
