I firmly believe every mom can find time in their day for fitness. Sometimes it takes creativity, and other times, it simply means sticking to the basics for awhile. While I would love to hit the gym on a regular basis and take fitness classes, the season I’m in as a mom doesn’t allow for the time or money for these ways of exercising. I do what I can with the tools I have at home.
My Morning Routine
Every morning, I’m out the door at 5:15 a.m. or so, running in the streets around my neighborhood. My iPhone is secure in a Armband iPhoneHolder giving me access to the MapMyRun app I use for tracking my mileage, while protecting my iPhone from the elements. When I get back, I do a quick stretch and head for the shower.
My Evening Routine
In the evening once I finished with the kids, I do my weight routines. I keep the leg and arm weights under our bed where I can pull them out and lift weights while watching tv with my husband. I alternate between legs one night and arms another night. I start my weight sessions with stretching and situps.
How do you make fitness part of your daily routine?
