Like many of you, I feel so much better if I stay active. Since Summer was born…over 5 weeks ago (can you believe it?!?), I haven’t done much exercise. I’ve walked the dogs a few times and done a little at-home yoga, but that’s about it. Oh, I did get on our stationary bike for about 5 minutes of Tabata Intervals, and they kicked my butt! I don’t have much pregnancy weight to lose, but I miss my toned muscles, and I miss movement…and I REALLY miss my yoga studio. However, with nursing, it’s hard for me to get to a class. My mom was actually going to come over and babysit this morning so that I could go, but the class was cancelled due to snow. So, I’ve decided to design some fun workouts that I can do here at home over the next few months. After all, I have a bike and weights…

I own several yoga DVD’s…

And let’s not forget my collection of workout videos

I’m not old, I’m just retro. 😉

My goal is do exercise 5 days a week, starting today with some bike intervals and perhaps a little dumbbell action. Of course, I had to eat a yummy breakfast first, and I made High Tea Oats with a twist…

First I frothed some heavy whipping cream.

And to my whipped cream, I added 1 cup rolled oats cooked in 2 cups water with 1/4 cup raisins, cinnamon, and vanilla…

I love plumped up raisins!

OK, I need to hit the bike and weights before Summer wakes up from her nap. What’s your favorite at-home workout?
