Since the big move, I’ve lost the ability to belong to and regularly use a gym. Because we are no longer using daycare, I spend my days with my kids. I’ve learned why it’s so hard for moms – working moms AND stay at home moms – to find time for fitness. I’ve also found that there are times during the day that I can squeeze in time for myself, and why that can still be hard to use for exercise.
It doesn’t have to be that way…during those times – nap times, quiet times, kids are playing contentedly times – finding a way to improve your health is a great idea. It doesn’t have to be complicated or involve expensive equipment. Check out this 10×10 that takes a mat (if you’d like to use one), a stopwatch and a kettlebell. Don’t have one? Mix in your own exercises. Do 10 reps of each move, 10 sets. Take time between sets and modify the numbers to fit your own pace.
