Hot Momma’s Fitness SecretsAug 22, 2018
As a stay at-home-mom, getting fit feels impossible. Time and energy constraints are real hurdles.
Good news? With a bit of creativity, you CAN do it! While children are hard work, they can also be a fitness asset. Attitude is everything, ladies!!
Children Make it Fun
To help along weight loss, learn to have fun and just enjoy your kids. Laugh together! Laughter is great for endorphin production, which gives a natural high and reduces perception of pain. Laughter increases your heart rate 10-20% which helps you burn calories.
Simple steps to start shedding those lbs:
- Have an exercise time with the children in the afternoon.
- Strengthen back and arms by lifting and twirling the kids.
- Work out when the kids are napping.
- Put the baby in the stroller and go for a walk.
- Work up a sweat by jogging behind that stroller!
- Get a child seat and take the little one for a bike ride.
Oh the Possibilities!
Besides fun times with the children, there are endless fitness possibilities to explore right from home.
Check out the fun exercise videos online that show you helpful stretches, exercise ball routines, bodyweight training and even cardio moves. Have fun and experiment!
Plan Before the Kids Wake Up!
It’s worth getting up earlier if it means snatching a few quiet moments. Spend that time on meal planning. After work when you’re exhausted and the kids are starving, you’ll be glad you did. Food is the foundation to healthy living.
Just 10 minutes in the morning will get you on the right track to eating well every day!
