At-home cardio anyone?

I need to get more exercise and I’ve decided to implement Fitness and Nutrition’s at-home mini cardio workout. I plan on doing it every day during Amina’s morning nap for a week and then increase the workout increments by 10.

The exercises are pretty straightforward and can be easily implemented at home or at work.

Exercises (I’ve linked Youtube videos to show the various exercises with proper form):

20 Jumping Jacks

20 Mountain Climbers

10 Push Ups

10 Squat Jumps

Repeat 5 times in a row…no break.

Belated Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak everyone!

Yes, I am a few days late in wishing you, but my family and I were back home in Toronto to spend the last few days of Ramadan and celebrate Eid with our loved ones.  The trip was great for the most part: I got to see some good friends, take Amina to the Toronto Zoo and spend time with family. The not so great part of the trip was the running around. I always try to jam pack my days with shopping, ( I try to do most of my shopping when I am at home because I get confused when I shop here in LA …lol), errands, meetings with people and visits to places.  I think I need to slow down a bit..or at least TRY to slow down during the next trip back home.


Some updates:

  •  I failed on my month-long squat challenge. I will attempt it again soon.
  • My little girl will be 1 years old in September. Mash’Allah!
  • My FitBit 1 million step challenge is going well. I’m well past the halfway mark and hope to hit 1 million steps before December
