Postpartum & Beyond: Week 5, Workout 32: Sweat & Sculpt 15 Minute HIIT

Hi Everyone!

This is the last workout of Week 5. It was a crazy week for me, so I literally got in zero workouts. It was terrible! I am not sure what I am going to do in regards to filming the workouts that were planned for this week, but I am going to move on into Week 6 this week, and see if I can fit in filming the other workouts as well.

Having a newborn baby makes the filming schedule a lot trickier! He is almost 12-weeks though, so we are settling into more of a routine at this point.

The workouts that I posted for this week are below. I am also filming a new workout today, so that will be up for tomorrow. On the plus side, I am over the flu, and I had a new mole that I got checked out and the doctor said that it is benign, so I have nothing to worry about. Time to get back on track (I feel like I have said that a lot during this challenge!)

I have been having a crazy sweet tooth lately, so I have also decided to explore some healthy alternatives to traditional desserts. I made Black Bean Brownies today, and gave them to Jesse without telling him what was in them. He had no clue that they were any different! Look for the recipe soon! I am going to also try a Raw Brownie Recipe, and some different Banana Ice Cream Flavors.

Have fun with the workout. I am excited to share my new one with you tomorrow.

    I love a recipe for my sweet tooth that I found through Trim Healthy Mama (they have a website and cookbook). And it’s especially great if you like dark chocolate. It’s called Skinny Chocolate and is as simple as 1/2 C coconut oil, 1/4 C coco powder, a bit of stevia (or sweetener of our choice) a bit vanilla and pinch sea salt stirred together well and let freeze. Because of the coconut oil it has to stay in the freezer or fridge, but cut into square inches and it’s a great way to curb that craving. I like to add a bit of peanut flour to mine for added protein and umph. Trim Healthy Mama has a bunch of great ideas like blending 1/2 C of cottage cheese with 1/2 C of frozen berries and a bit of vanilla for a high protein, frosty fruity treat- works best in a Blendtec or Vitamix. Best!

    I normally don’t crave sweets but when I am nursing my body seriously just wants sugar! It’s tough not to eat it all the time. I have to think my body needs it because it begs for it. Lol!

    Try cookies and cream protein shake. 1 scoop protein powder, one very ripe frozen banana, 6oz almond milk, 2-3 oreos (without the filling), vanilla extract. I mix it all in my VitaMix, split it into small serving sizes and freeze them. Take one out before I prepare dinner and it’s nice and smooth for a quick dessert. Less almond milk makes it more like ice-cream. I’m gonna have to look up that black bean brownie recipe – sounds delish!

    I have a 3 week old and I know my hormones are out of whack because my sweet tooth is insane. Largely due to the fact that I am only sleeping 2 to 3 hour stretches at a time then have to be up at 630am with my toddler. When your sleep deprived your body craves sugar because it uses it for energy. I remember experiencing this with my first daughter who was a horrible sleeper. Try this avocado brownie recipe!
