Dear Internet…

I need your advice on several things today, so I’m hoping you can help me out…

  1. I’m trying to be sure I’m doing enough in terms of workouts now that I’m not following a solid plan.  On average, I’m doing 30min cardio & 30min strength training on M/W/F, and then 45-60min cardio on T/Th/Sat.  As long as I’m keeping my intensity up, am I on the right track?
  2. I need some recommendations for (preferably wicking) workout wear that does not cost $50 per piece.  As much as I adore, ADORE, my Thriv stuff… I just can’t afford to add to my collection.
  3. I tend to split up my cardio since I take a brisk 20 minute walk with my daughter in the mornings.  Am I reducing the effectiveness of the cardio by doing so?  I don’t think I can manage a full hour of cardio all at once with a toddler to wrangle…
  4. I’d love your opinion on water additives/substitutes like Crystal Light.  I drink a lot of water every day, but sometimes I just want a little more…

And finally, some advice for you.  Do not, under any circumstances, make these salted peanut chews.  They are super sweet, taste amazing, made of pretty much pure sugar, and will sit in your fridge taunting you with their crack-like goodness.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

  2. 1. Yes, you are definitely on right track. All that work combined with clean eating will get awesome results! 🙂

    2. I love my Thriv stuff too….and the tops aren’t too pricey. ($25) i also get a ton of stuff at Target. I love me some Target!

    3. The intensity is more important. Plus, like you said, you are doing what you can with a toddler in tow!

    4. Try the Izze drinks. (again, found at target, lol) They are made with real fruit and don’t have the additive crap in them.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

  3. I more in learn than advice mode on fitness stuff. But I found adding a little pilates and yoga really helps me slim down. I so need the core work. I love the free work outs @ http://www.exercisetv.tv/. I need to do them more often 🙂

  4. I second Target as a suggestion for workout wear. Also, Old Navy. I’ve bought a ton of stuff at each place for relatively cheap.

  5. 4. I LOVE True Lemon and True Lime (there also is True Orange). Great to add to water! Tastes like the real thing and comes in a handy little packet! Natural, no calories and has 25 percent daily amount of Vitamin C in one little packet! http://www.truelemon.com
