EXERCISING WITH BABY.... among other things



In the last months of my pregnancy, for obvious reasons, I didn't work out as vigorously as I did pre-preganancy.
After I had my son, I wanted to loose the baby weight real bad! I missed the adrenaline of reaching that 5th mile after a long run, finishing off that last crunch after a bootcamp class, and getting the "day-after" muscle soreness that reminds you that your workout has paid off and your muscles are changing.

Since I had canceled my gym membership during my pregnancy (no need to pay $15 a month for no reason right?) my only options were working out at home.

So I started to look at youtube videos of simple 15 minute workouts that I could do in my garage or living room (fitness blender is a-m-a-z-i-n-g.)
The video above will give you some samples of how I use my baby to workout, and how I handle other mommy duties... enjoy!

Did you know what NAIBE means?

by Elia Esparza
Sitting at one end of the ¡HOLA LA! table is none other than multiple-Emmy Award winning journalist, Naibe Reynoso!
NaibeEmmySo, what does Naibe bring to the table? A wealth of broadcasting and television experience mixed with her entertainment savvy and quick wit… well it makes for one unique voice.
First things first, how do you pronounce your name?
Naibe: NIE – E – BEH. I believe the origin of my name is Lebanese. Someone once told me it meant ‘female warrior.’ Not sure if that’s really what it means but I like it and sticking to it!  However, upon further digging Naibe is derived from the original name Najibe or Najib or Nahibe something like that… my parents knew a Lebanese family and that was the name of one of their daughters names and my mom changed the spelling to Naibe (thank God she picked a “b” and not a “v” LOL).
