If you don’t use SnapChat – then we another thing in common! However, I am taking over the ClassPass SnapChat account tomorrow, Sunday, all day sharing my Sunday eats, what a “rest day” looks like and maybe even a shot or two of Nick and Little Fit. I would love for you guys to follow along.
In honor of needing to know how to use SnapChat, I downloaded it to my phone and have started my own account under OfficialSFit – because someone took SarahFit womp womp. If I like using it, I guess I could get in the habit of updating another social channel
When I started making YouTube video for Diet.com, I loved to create cardio and strength training workouts that you could do outside. When you’re stuck inside an office all day, why do you want to spend another hour indoors? Same goes for when I’m on vacation.
By combining cardio and strength, you burn more calories while melting away fat and sculpting the muscle underneath to create a lean and strong look fast. It also raises your metabolism the rest of the day so if you are on vacation and plan to make a few splurges, it makes you feel better.
While visiting St Thomas, there were these breathtaking stairs that were long and killer. I used them one day while I was there to get in a Barry’s Bootcamp style workout combining body weight strength training moves and running up and down the stairs.
One round will take you ten minutes but I recommend doing this at least 3 times for 3 total sets. It is an intermediate workout but beginner friendly. If you are just starting your fitness journey, walk the steps instead of run.
The video features a the 5 minute follow along strength training routine. You can do now in your living room or office even actually since you don’t need any equipment! I also explain the rest of the workout details.
Here are some of my favorite moves that you will find in the video:
Cross Body Plank Crunch
Single Leg Hip Lift
And yes, I shot this video while 10 weeks pregnant.. It feels so long ago!!!! I can’t believe how self-conscious I was about the little weight gain from my carb cravings! Bagels were my go to for a good two-week stretch.
This is the 3rd Fit in Paradise video uploaded this week. Make sure you check out the first two:
Remember when we didn’t always have our cell phones attached to our hips? No? I do. Prior to the smart phone take over, the only time I didn’t have my phone on me was when I was actually working out, specifically running. It was my me time and still is, just with my mobile device […]
Recipe meal delivery services are very popular right now. Over a year ago, I tried a few and while initially loved them, grew tired of the time required to make a recipe and lack of good tasting healthy options. Either it took 90 minutes to make a recipe that tasted great but was a calorie […]
Back in August, I finished up visiting the 8 Caribbean and Latin American Marriott Resorts as part of my Fit In Paradise tour. By now, each resort should have a handy tip sheet for all of its guests to use to make healthier decisions while on vacation like where to go running, simple substitutions for […]
They say pregnancy is 40 weeks which in fact is 10 months, not 9. Technically the trimesters should then be after 13.33 weeks, 26.67 weeks and then 40 of course. However, if you google it, you’ll find people who say the third trimester begins after 28 weeks. Mentally I feel like I’ve just turned a […]
The time has come to put on my maternity jeans and dance. While I’m still wearing most of my regular clothes, I am not wearing my regular jeans – that is for sure! I have bought a few tops and bottoms but went on a mini spree during week 24 at Destination Maternity in Braintree […]
During my first trimester, breakfast was the most important meal of my day. I needed to eat something right away or face nausea well into the night. The foods I craved were things I loved to eat growing up and in college which included scrambled eggs, bagels with cream cheese, Greek yogurt with granola and […]
It’s funny how when you get pregnant, there are some things you never forget to do, like taking a vitamin every morning, yet you forget other things that used to cause severe anxiety like moving your car for street cleaning. I’ve been pretty religious about tracking my weight since the second trimester. I haven’t weighed […]
I can’t believe I’m giving away a prize on my blog that is worth $3600! Thanks to the Ford Warriors In Pink and Pedego Electric Bikes, there is an awesome giveaway going on right now on my YouTube channel featuring an electric bike. The bike works like it is half motorized scooter, half beach cruiser. […]
