August Workout of the Month – Lower Body

It’s the middle of August!!  And even though it’s still Summer (and I hate to wish away any time), I have to say I’m super pumped for Fall!  With it being a few weeks into August, it’s time for our workout of the month.  Like we talked about before, each workout is going to be targeted for a specific part of your body.  For this August workout of the month, we’re going to focus on your lower body.  Think squats, squats and more squats 🙂

June is here, and with it comes sweet summer  time!  I think I’m still in shock that it’s already June, but I’m not complaining one bit about the summer part!  Hot weather, sunglasses, flowy dresses, cool drinks, and bikini’s – who wouldn’t love summer?

If you follow along on my instagram, you’ll notice my son makes it in a few pictures (okay way more than just a few!).  So I figured it was only time to include him in one of my workouts!  June’s workout of the month features my nine month old son, Noah!
