Most people think of working out as a form of losing weight and losing weight fast. Ironically, the secret doesn't work that way. Oftentimes you have to eat more (nutritional of course) in order to see weight loss and progress. If you're not seeing the results you...read more
Stress is a real deal. In fact, stress should not be overlooked. Dealing with stress head-on can save a lot of lost time, energy, and emotion. Unfortunately life brings stress in multiple forms. It would be ideal if everyone knew where their stress came from and how...read more
Working out from home has become one of my favorite things! When I became a stay at home mom, exercising at home with my children around was extremely stressful. I have learned over the years to adjust and make it work. And now, my children ask me daily if I'm doing a...read more
There is a vacation and there is a trip. A vacation happens when mom and dad get to travel alone and a trip is when you go with the kids. With all that said, traveling as a family is all about memory making. It's a time to reflect on goals, memories, and most of all,...read more
Exercise and pain kind of go hand in hand, unfortunately. It doesn't always have to be the case, but sometimes an injury can be as simple as improper form. Most injuries go away on their own after a few weeks and if you give your muscles rest to fully recover. Even...read more
TEN FIT TIPS FOR THE BUSY MOM
1. Involve your Kids– it’s almost impossible to get anything done with the kids around. So put on some good music, get moving, and everyone will be ready for naps by the end of it! Even 10 minutes is worth it.
3. Youtube everything— Not sure how to do a move? Youtube has an answer for anything. You can even follow along if you’re still confused. Don’t let a workout intimidate you.
5. Be sure to get enough sleep– I know this is hard with little kids. But make sure you catch up during the day somehow. Your muscles need recovery time and sleep is the best remedy for that!
8. Patience is key to fitness– the weight didn’t come on overnight so it won’t come off overnight. Or if you’re not dealing with weight issues, maybe it’s balance and strength. Set realistic goals.
10. Set goals– Write it down what you want exactly. If you want to lose 1-2lbs a week, write it down. If you want to see yourself exercising 3-5 times a week, write it down. Set those goals and stick to it!
2. Take the kids to the park– make good use of the monkey bars, stairs, benches, and big field. Kids can play and mommy can get some fitness time in!
4. Drink one cup of water every hour– Start your morning off with water and continue throughout the day. Feeling tired, bloated, and lightheaded? You’re probably not getting enough water. It’s important to flush out toxins.
7. 80/20– 80% of the time you’re a fitness guru and a health nut. But the remaining 20% you indulge in some serious chocolate cake, cookies, ice cream, or whatever your inner “food junkie” soul loves. It’s all about balance.
9. You have to be committed— If you’re motivated and tell yourself you can, you most definitely will. But first you have to commit that you want it. Once you want it, you’ll have the drive to get it. Commit to 3-5 days of exercise a week.
