14 FREE Workouts to Target Mom Trouble Spots

We are on a health-kick! Jaime and I have committed to helping each other get fit in 2013. One of these days we will even abandon our many tricks to looking thin in photos because we will actually be thin! In real life! Jaime shared her 20 favorite smoothie recipes and 20 DIYs to Make Your Workout Prettier and now we have 14 awesome workouts that not only target the trouble areas that come with being an amazing baby making machine but workouts that have a better chance of success because they are actually fun. Jaime enjoys a good weightlifting gym workout. I despise that. I have more success with a group exercise that involves an outdoor activity, a class with good music,  or a game, like tennis, basically anything that makes me forget I’m working out and holds the promise of a post-exercise coffee with friends. How do you like to burn your calories? Here’s 14 FREE workouts that might be a perfect fit.
