The Next Step

The days of my two little bugs walking independently, running, and cartwheeling through life are seemingly minutes away. Both Henry and Emily surprise me and Sean daily at how quickly their balance improves, how fearless they are, and how joyful they become with every new discovery. It’s truly an honor to watch these two souls grow.

Review: StudiOne’s Fit Camp {from home}

So remember when I told y’all about that 12 week remote fit camp that I signed up for in Feb? Here’s that original post: Fit Camp! {from home}. Well…I DID IT! I completely loved it, needed it, and desperately want it back in my life again. It was the first time in far too long that I felt like I got my strength back, and then some.

Fit Camp! {from home}

Since Henry & Emily are gonna be crawling, walking, and running all over creation soon, keeping fitness a priority this year is so important to me. Mama Kath’s gotta keep up!

picmonkey-photoI go to StudiOne Tulsa once a week for their bootcamp class and I recently learned about their 12 week fit camp that I can sign up for and do from home. This is PERFECT for me! Having 3 home workouts a week sent to me from Coach Sprenkel (co-owner of StudiOne Tulsa) is exactly what I need. It fits right in line with my goals for 2017 (My 2017)!

Anyone wanna join meeee? I hope you will! I’d love to have more friends do this with me along the way. I plan on posting frequent updates on Instagram (@OK.Kath) and once a month on the blog to stay accountable. Here are the details:

What:

Fit Camp (remotely) through StudiOne Tulsa

How:

3 days of strength circuits are sent to participants each week. Circuits are less than 30 minutes and they can be broken up into 3 smaller circuits throughout the day. There’s even a Facebook community group that we get to join to help stay motivated!

$75 covers all 12 weeks. Otherwise, all you need are dumbbells/weights (I’m usin’ my babies!), a mat, and something to step on & off.

Where:

Wherever I want! Living room, nursery, backyard/park (weather-willing). If you’re thinking of doing it (yay!!!) you don’t have to be in the Tulsa area. Anyone can sign up. East coast, west coast, midwest friends: y’all should seriously do this with me!

When:

It starts on Monday, Jan 16 & lasts for 12 weeks. This is the best way to make sure my goals won’t be just a Jan/Feb thing. This sets the tone for the entire year, and by the time Spring running races roll around – I’ll be ready!

Who:

Register by emailing Coach Jessica Sprenkel at: fitness@studionetulsa.com

Comment below or message me on IG/FB if you’re thinking about joining me. The more friends doing this with me the better!

I’m so pumped 🙂

Big hugs,

Katherine

 

My Fit Mix – 15 for ’15

A new year calls for a new line up of tunes, so I’m sharing 15 of my favorites for 2015! Some of these are recycled from the past few years, and that’s fine. No need to trash perfectly good inspiration!

I’m determined to keep my fitness efforts consistent this winter.

Now, when the weather warms and becomes more bearable, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all easily inspired again to run, squat, bike, cartwheel, walk, and jumping jack outside. But this is January, and next month is February, and I hate to state the obvious, but we’re far from that envious scene of heavily breathing outside in tanks, shorts, and sunshine. It’s crucial to keep the new year, new girl, and “newlie” mentality spinning as I’ve intended (despite the freezing wind outside). Lucky for these tunes – I’ve got new inspiration practically screaming at me with positivity (or in some lyrical cases…more fun beats than positivity, hehe) for every minute of  my workout.

I love love LOVE the way these songs keep me moving, and hope they inspire any of you to throw together your new 15 for ’15 too:

Demons - Imagine Dragons
Shake It Off - Taylor Swift
Roar - Katy Perry
Team - Lorde
Turn Down For What - DJ Snake & Lil Jon
One Life - James Morrison
On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons
I Lived - OneRepublic
I Bet My Life - Imagine Dragons
Problem - Ariana Grande & Iggy Azalea
Shut Up and Dance - Walk The Moon
Pompeii - Bastille
Uptown Funk - Bruno Mars
Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj
Life Is Short - Butterfly Boucher

So, what are your songs? Got any recommendations for me? What gets you “newlie” rejuvenated mid-workout when you’re ready to quit (or hurl) but know you need to keep pushing through?  I’d love to hear your favs.

Happy fit mixin!
