Califit Mama Erin

started the challenge wanting to lose those last 5-10 post four kids
pounds. Instead, I gained two! I have checked and double checked all of
my measurements and yes, I’ve gained weight, lost a few inches around my
waist, and built up some muscle. During
this challenge my daughter turned eight and for the first time ever, I
heard her use the word “fat.” This has completely changed how I need to
view myself as I am the one setting an example for her. As a family we
exercise and go out for bike rides or hike. As a family we eat healthy
with the occasional dessert
(once-a-week-until-it’s-gone rule in our house). As a family, WE ARE
HEALTHY! She is 100% healthy and normal. AND, I am 100% healthy and
normal. I am ecstatic that I was able to tone up so quickly. Do I need
that number on the scale to drive my attitude about myself? NO! Maybe in
the past I was tied to numbers but now I need to show my daughter that I
can eat, exercise, have the occasional dessert, AND be HAPPY with my
body. My
body is just a shell of my true self and while I rocked that pre-baby
6-pack, my muffin top (oh how I wish we could spot reduce!) is a
reminder of a greater daily challenge I have to worry about than just my
own self-absorbed self image…….I am laying the groundwork for how
my daughters will one day view themselves. I want them to see themselves
beautifully as I do. Thank you so much for these at home work-outs!
They are very challenging and yet very conducive to a mom of four’s busy

  1. Great testimonial, Erin. You are rocking your body, now!

    4:53 as RX'd

  2. 5:21 with 8lb medicine ball for wall ball and sit ups on an exercise ball (sore bottom from earlier butterfly sit-ups)
    Added a 1 mile jog (11min) and 50 more ball sit-ups at the end.

  3. Great job Erin!
    12 lb ball
    Arms crossed
    30 lb thrusters

  4. I used to get a sore bottom all the time too then I bought a $10 abmat (I have off-brand "Yes4All" from favorite store-Amazon)! It's great! Or put a rolled up towel under your bottom/low back.

  5. 4:49, squats instead of wall balls and 24# thrusters.

  6. 5:47 Weighted jumping squats instead of wall balls. 15lbs for all weighted exercises.

  7. 4:51
    Everything as rx'd
    Then did an arm workout

  8. Question: I have to sub thrusters for wall-balls. Since this WOD also includes thrusters, should I sub a different exercise for wall-balls? Thank you!

  9. 5:54
    Subbed walking weighted lunges for wb
    arms crossed on half
    30# thrusters
    Then ran 1 mile

    It's so exciting to see everyone's results! Great job Erin

    Did first and last set of thrusters with 40# and second with 20#. I just should have done them all with 40#!

    I finally got tired of just using a basketball for the wall ball so I made my own "ball" by duct taping two 5# plates together. It did the job and I like my little thing I made! 😉 I'll use that until I can get a proper medicine ball.

  12. 10 minutes and I also added in goblet squats with a 20lb kettle bell to each round. I also ran 1.25 miles before I started.

  13. High five to u Erin!!!!

    Nice job Erin! I too think it is fun to see results!

    Whew, that was kinda hard after being on vacation in Vegas for the past week and a half.

  17. 7:32 20# thrusters, they had me almost crying
    10# medball
    no assistance needed for the butterfly sit-ups

  18. Erin! Thank you so much for your post! I'm in the same boat, want to lose that 10 lbs of baby weight and am struggling with my self image while trying to raise my boys to love themselves, it's so hard sometimes. You look fantastic! And love how almost all the women do far have gained a pound or two or lost no weight but they've lost inches – goes to show how much muscle is really healthier for you and weighs more. So happy I found this blog! Such an inspiration.
