rockin’ bakin’ workout

This is what I like to call accomplishment. You can workout while you bake. Pretty much the best combo to ever exist.

Here’s how it works…

You start by putting on your workout gear (otherwise it’s just not real) – omit the shoes though; it still needs to feel like baking.

Next, get in the kitchen and get your ingredients all lined up!

Now start baking! Items of choice: zucchini bread and strawberry oat bars!

Work those triceps while grating zucchini.

Do a few flour bag bicep curls.

Wait for your loaf to bake while holding a squat – peering into the oven!

I probably would have stayed there if my legs wouldn’t give out on me and watching something bake is about as interesting as your husband talking ‘golf’ with his friends.

And there you have it…with a few simple moves you, too, can incorporate an at-home workout/bake sesh all into one.

And if that wasn’t enough…get a little cardio in while waiting for your items to bake. We all know it takes at least 20 mins for something to bake. Unless we’re talking cookies, then in that case, drop and give me 20!

End result: hot buns bread and strawberry oat squares with a little upper + lower body workout action!

No need for a gym. Gyms are so for stay-at-home moms, who can now rightfully stay at home.

After a good bake/workout sesh, if that wasn’t enough, then do more! And then reward yourself by eating a big salad with leftover veggies and marinara sauce poured on top.

Now you never have to skip a workout again!

Q: How do you keep your workouts creative and fresh?

  1. Hahhha! This is adorable, Char! You look priceless squatting in front of the oven!!!

  2. That is amazing. I love working out and baking at the same time. There are these cookies that I make that really work my arms and I love it.

  3. I totally do this while I’m making dinner at night. Squats, leg lifts, dips…it passes time and burns some cals!

    I’m the most boring person when it comes to working out because I like what I like and I tend to stick to it. But one trick for me is moving OUTSIDE the gym. It’s just so much better to be breathing in fresh air!

    I caught the baking bug last night too and made a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies (your baking looks way healthier 😉 )

  5. I loved the strawberry oat squares when I made them and can’t wait to try the zucchini bread!
