A BABY-WEARING WORKOUT! 26 Feb 2015

Lithe+ Oh Joy + Ergo 1 Lithe + Oh Joy + Ergo

I had so much fun working with Joy and Ergobaby – check out our baby-wearing workout!

If you're a mom, you know just how tough it is to squeeze exercise in, but our baby-wearing workout makes it a reality when you have an Ergobaby wrapYou guys are familiar with these Lithe moves, but when you're wearing a baby, it takes them to an entirely different level and you really work up a sweat. I recommend tacking these moves onto a 20-30 minute brisk walk.  

While some of the motions may look small or simple, these functional and fat-blasting exercises balance the body muscularly while targeting the core. We're flexing, extending, and rotating, and no muscle is left un-worked. It's really important (and feels good) to extend the spine during this time because new mamas are always hunched over due to nursing and tending to your babe. These particular moves were designed for wearing a smaller baby (less than six months) facing inwards. Coco was so cozy and in a sleepy bliss the entire time!

LITHE SLIMMING BROTH 25 Feb 2015

Lithe Broth 1

Feeling under the weather?  This is liquid sunshine.  Our veggie version of bone broth is mineral-rich super-broth is a delicious, filling snack that also supplies healing nutrients and alkalizes your system, making it easier to detoxify, lose weight, and feel fantastic. This recipe can be varied according to taste.

Ingredients
3 quarts water
1 large onion, halved
2 carrots, sliced
2 cups chopped kale and parsley
2 celery stalks
1 tsp. turmeric
1 clove whole garlic (don't chop or crush)
Bragg's Liquid Aminos or sea salt and pepper to taste
1 cup fresh dried shiitake mushrooms

Put ingredients into a pot and place on a low boil for approximately 60 minutes. Continue to boil to taste. Cool, strain (I prefer to eat the cooked veggies), and store in a sealed container in the fridge. Re-heat and drink up to 3–4 cups a day.

JESSICA ENDER! 10 Feb 2015

Jess E
 
From: Philadelphia
 
Favorite city: It's a toss-up between New York City and Los Angeles.
 
Favorite Lithe workout: Weightless and All That.
 
Favorite Lithe exercise: CCS Cardio! I could do Lithe Cardio-Cheer sequences all day and night.
 
How she landed a spot on the Lithe team: Jess is strong, fun, outgoing, high octane, and can really command a room. She's form-focused and will push you to get stronger!  
 
Other job: I'm an owner/buyer at Nest and a mom of three girls.
 
Enjoys: Laughing with my girlfriends and alone time with my husband!
 
What you wouldn't know by looking at her: I dance, sang, and cheered my entire life. I eat like a kid (I love cheeseburgers)! I met my husband in fifth grade. We "went out" in sixth grade for a week, kissed in a game of truth or dare in eighth grade, and finally got together senior year of high school. We've been married 13 years in May. When people first meet me they think I'm not nice. I'm actually just choosy, but once I let you in, I'm an open book. 
 
I have an elaborate family story. I'm the only child of my mom and dad, but I have a half-sister, half-brother, stepsister, and two stepbrothers. My parents have been divorced for 35 years, and remain great friends. We all celebrate the holidays together. They made the decision to remain close for me. My girls are Avery (9), Lola (6), and Charlie (3). I started Lithing in November 2011 after I had Charlie. I couldn't imagine how I'd ever get back to myself again after three kids. I turn 39 in March and I am in the best shape of my life.

ANNETTE'S LITHE INSIDE CHALLENGE! 10 Feb 2015

Annette-2

Check out Annette one year ago!

Well, friends, I did it. I survived turning 40. Somehow I woke up this morning without my face shriveling into a wrinkled prune, my (nonexistent) boobs drooping to my knees, or needing bifocals and dentures. It's really turned out to be a day just like any other day. It's a day where I get to open my eyes and be grateful for the opportunities that lie ahead, be humbled by the strength my body provides me, and awed by what this world has to offer. I think birthdays are just a perfect reminder of what we should be doing that each and every day.

Other than the two cheat days I mentioned at my midway point, I stayed pretty on-point with the diet. I eased up a little bit this weekend, sharing some sorbet with a girlfriend at a pre-birthday dinner, and then fully taking advantage of shared pieces of chocolate cake and Nutella cheesecake as well as an aged Napa cabernet at dinner last night.
 
I am happy to say I surpassed the class goals Lauren and I set for myself. In these past 40 days, I've taught 38 classes, and have taken 52 classes.  I had one "off" day in those 30 days where I wasn't in the studio. Honestly my muscles are fatigued. I'm looking forward to a day off tomorrow and a massage, but I'm already signed up for the Summer Bodies Are Earned In Winter Challenge. I figure it's good to keep the momentum moving forward, though I might relax a bit to more of the 80/20 lifestyle with my diet.
 
I can now do triceps push-ups in full plank,  I'm not afraid of 8 pound weights during a bicep series, and I don't hate cardio nearly as much as I did. I don't think I'll ever be able to do teasers though, and still have those days when I don't always tuck enough when I'm in Liberty at the barre.  
 
I am ever so grateful for all of the support I received from the Lithe community. I never considered myself one of the "cool girls," but everyone has made me feel special and encouraged beyond words. Thank you so much for all of your inspiration. I look forward to taking up the mantle with those of you that are going into the next challenge, and I'm just plain excited to see everyone who is present in-studio for your own personal fitness goals in the days to come. You are strong! You are fierce! You are amazing! Woo hoo!
