New 2021 workout clothes = New 2021 workout motivation 💪🏻🏃♀️🏋️ I put together this blog post as I had some readers message me asking me what my fitness routine and diet looked like. It’s been almost a year and some things have changed so I thought it was time to give you an update ! Quick backstory first. Tennis is my favorite sport to play, however a little over a year ago I took that out of my workout schedule. It was hard at first, but honestly I just did not have the time for it and it also can irritate my back when I don’t play enough. Our family loves to play pickleball though! 🤗 Right after I stopped playing, I took my first Barre class and was hooked.
My Current Favorite Barre Class
The Bar Method is really good for like beginners and how I got hooked on barre in the first place. They teach you technique and they move slower. I was doing that for two years. It just wasn’t as hard for me anymore and I felt like the workouts kinda plateaued for me so I switched over to Pure Barre. It is definitely a harder workout. I like that it moves faster and faster paced. The 50 minute classes are shorter compared to Bar Method’s one hour classes. Moms, I think we can all relate that 10 minute difference can be a game-changer . 🤣 I also like how Pure Barre has a cardio version and a classic one as well.
It’s funny because in the beginning, I used to always say how much I liked The Bar Method more than Pure Barre. Now it’s the opposite. Both are really awesome workouts though. It just depends on your preference. Also just want to mention that no, you do not have to be a dancer. I am the furthest thing from a dancer you will ever meet. 😂 I promise you that! I have friends that want me to try those hip hop workout classes and I give them the “Heyyyllll No” lol. You really can’t go wrong with either !
My Weekly Workout Routine
I used to include running in my weekly workout routine, but no more running for me 🙅♀️ So I’m doing Pure Barre and then the on-demand classes with obé fitness. I have all of that info saved on my highlight stories ! If you’re interested, you can get 30% off your first month with my code – JAIME . My favorite instructor is Sam G! I take her sculpt classes and she is so fun. I either do the 30 minute or the 45 minute workout. I do the 30 minute class most of the time and then once a week, I do the 45 min classes.
My Workout Schedule
Here is an outline of what my workout schedule looks like. Basically, I workout 5 days a week. I have one weekday off and always take Sundays off 🙂 I’ll do my Barre and obe classes each 2-3x week. The classes I take during the week kind of just depends on that particular week.
- Monday – workout
- Tuesday – workout
- Wednesday – off day
- Thursday – workout
- Friday – workout
- Saturday – workout
- Sunday – off day

What My Schedule and Daily Diet Looks Like
I wake up at 6AM every morning and have a cup coffee by 6:30AM. I love Dunkin Donuts Regular and I use this coffee maker. What I used to do was add the Califia Farms vanilla coffee creamer, honey to sweeten, and sprinkle cinnamon on top. I’ve since updated how I make my coffee at home and wrote it step by step in this blog post.
Breakfast (8AM) – 2 scrambled eggs, and cinnamon raisin ezekial bread with either peanut butter or nuts n more (salted caramel) on top.
Snack (11AM) – The Kize (almond butter) used to be my all-time fav . I switched to lemon Luna Bars after I noticed the Kize Bars were making me bloated 😩
Lunch (2PM) – I grab lunch to go most days. My Chick-Fil-A order is the same – grilled nuggets and a side salad. I still have cokes cut out from my diet. I also love Zoe’s. My order is chicken kabobs, a side of cauliflower rice, and a side of braised white beans. For those local, I also go to Modern Market. My order is the buddha bowl and I sub chicken instead of tofu and I get it without rice. You can add more chicken or broccoli on extra hungry days. I have cut chipotle out except for cheat days. My Chipotle order is a chicken bowl, no rice, pico, corn, tiny bit of sour cream & lettuce.I drink a peach pear La Croix with lunch. My favorite and only flavored sparkling water I like. If I make lunch at home, I will do a bag of cauliflower rice ( the frozen that microwaves in the bag ), microwave bag of broccoli on top, a cut up hard boiled egg and soy sauce.
Starbucks Run (3PM) – I always grab Starbucks to beat that 3 o’clock slump. I have a ton of fun low calorie Starbucks drinks you should try – here. For healthier seasonal drinks, I have a holiday and fall-inspired Starbucks drink suggestions blog post. My reg is a cold brew with 1 pump of sugar free vanilla, 1 pump of toffee nut and light half and half.
Dinner (6:30PM) – I choose from my rotation of recipes I have on my blog (here).
I’m glad I wrote this because if I ever go through an unhealthy phase again I will refer back to this! For me when I slide, it’s mainly by eating junk. I love fries, pasta, well allll the carbs really, but I have noticed that I was always so bloated and kind of crappy. When I stick to my diet, I generally feel so much better. I do have major cheat days over the weekend when I will eat desserts and alllll the carbs 🙂
So that’s what my day to day looks like. I hope that was helpful !
Have a great day!
