Most of the women that I work with are moms, like me. People tend to gravitate to others that are like themselves when looking for workout partners, accountability partners, coaches and friends. This one is for the mommies!
Workout Option 1: Playground Workout. Take your kids to the park and squeeze in this short circuit while they are playing!

A side side for your already perfected chicken: Roasted Green Beans
An entire meal: Chicken, Roasted Broccoli, Mashed Potatoes
