If there is one thing I have noticed with RESTARTing exercise, is that it isn’t coming easy.
I find myself running around all day playing mommy and wifey, and by the time the end of the day is near all I want to do is cuddle with my family and relax for the rest of the night. The last thing I do is want to exercise…
Finding that exercise groove again is hard, but I am not putting the pressure on myself to do it all because I know that will cause me to give up. Because of this, I am focusing on the things that I know will make it easier for me to exercise:
Knowing these things helps me to understand where and how I am comfortable with fitting in exercise into my daily schedule.
What’s on your list of things that you know will make exercise easier?
One of the most important things for me is making sure my little chickpeas are with me and happy.
My goal is to keep things balanced, so you won’t see me going to the gym, then taking the kids on a run, then coming home and doing a workout video.
It’s just not me.
I’ve got tea parties and dress up appointments with my little gals scheduled everyday.
Sometimes you can’t always throw the kids in the stroller and go on a long run.
OR you little girl is missing her toy ice cream cone and if it’s not found she’s going to scream…a lot..
THEN your littlest chickpea can’t sit in a car seat in the stroller because it’s 107 degrees outside.
And lastly, your husband is working a 12 hour day so there is no ‘break’ for you to break a sweat on your own and relax…
What’s a Diva to do?!?
Playing with your kids is a great way to get that heart rate up as well as get your kids moving!
More importantly it brings your family together as you laugh, dance, and act silly.
And after a good solid play time with the kids, a post workout snack/meal is a necessity!
