Being a mom means being more creative with your workouts. We don’t always have time to go to a gym or to dance classes or to even take a run or walk on our own. When you have young children your used to being a full-time chauffeur , Chef, tutor, friend, disciplinarian. Your hours are long and your time is precious. I have found different tips to help me stay active and feel like I am getting in a workout. I take out the stroller in the morning and afternoons when weather permits and me and my baby girl walk my 10-year-old to and from school. I wall sit whenever possible around the house at kids sporting events. Use my daughter as my weight and do chest presses and sit ups. I park far away so I get more steps in even for a trip to the grocery store. I take the time my baby is napping and I do my chores first but then even if for only 15 minutes I get out my Kettle bells do reps and I do crunches and squats and push ups. I time myself with music one song is how long I do an activity. When my daughter is in the bath instead of sitting down I stand by bath and do squats. I challenge my son to see how many push ups we can do as something fun and healthy. I race him at the park to see who runs the fastest, He is very fast I sweat my butt off and I don’t always win.My baby loves music so I pick her up and dance with her as often as possible in the day. I have three days a week that my daughter started going to daycare those days are now set for household, errands , fitness and time for myself. I will keep making posts as I figure out best way to utilize my time. Wish me luck and I will be sure to give you any and all tips I can think of. I do know dressing comfortably in workout gear first thing in the morning helps to motivate me to get moving no matter what my day holds. Don’t give up and stay hydrated turn your chores into a workout.even adding 5 reps more each day you will see huge results and start gaining more strength. I am very motivated to get back into a healthy routine and make fitness a priority again. I am very busy and my kids and husband are my life. Part of making time for my fitness and just me time in general is loving my family. Because the happier and healthier I can be the better wife and mother I will be for them.
