Yesterday I told you that I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions, only a new outlook on life. I am focusing on happiness, and part of that means that I need to exercise more so that I feel better (both emotionally and physically).
So when I was contacted by Kiana Tom, dubbed the “Queen of Fitness” by Access Hollywood, I was super excited. She offered to create a workout for busy moms like me, and now I get to share it with you!

FIT MOM TV MONSTER WORKOUT
4 MOVES TO BE A LEAN, MEAN, MOM MACHINE
If you have kids, you need to destress. Working out will help you de stress, feel energized and be more patiend. Studies show that exercise releases feel good endorphins that have been called “nature’s Zanax.”
If you have little adorable Monsters or Twins, you need to do this 3 x per week.
Busy women can do this full body workout at home or in the gym with a hand weight or Fit Mom TV Medicine Ball, an ideal piece of fitness equipment for women because it’s versatile, soft on the hands, increases finger & arm strength – and comes in beautiful colors. Available at http://shop.kiana.com.
Fit Mom TV Booty Hops

The Move: From this position squat down until your upper leg is parallel to the floor, then straightening your legs, jumpinh upward as high as you can, landing softly back on the balls of your feet.
Do: As many as you can in 1 minute
Kiana’s Tip: Beginners: learn the move without any weight focusing on keeping your back straight without bending at the waist. As your strength increases, strive to squat deep with your butt lower than your knees.
