5 Tips to staying fit as a stay at home mom

A lot of wives decide to stay at home after conceiving children. This allows them to focus more on their child and recover fully after giving birth. Doing household chores and tending to the kids sounds like a very physical job, but it doesn’t ensure fitness. According to https://parentsneed.com, it’s important to keep a healthy weight during and after pregnancy. If you’re a stay at home mom who’s struggling to become fit, read on. Here are 5 tips to staying fit that you shouldn’t miss.

 

  1. Do short workouts regularly

Staying at home isn’t a lazy job. A lot of people think you have all the time in world if you’re a housewife but no. If you can’t find time to squeeze in an intense workout, stick to short workout videos that are 15 to 30 minutes long. You don’t even have to spend money. There are a lot of short workout videos you can watch online and do at home. In the morning, you can do yoga or pilates for a good stretch. If you’re looking for something intense, you can follow short HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts. They’ll surely energize you throughout the day. The goal is to be able to exercise at least 3 times a week. Make this a habit and you’ll be stronger and healthier in no time.

 

  1. Take your kids outside

If you find it hard to focus on scheduling a regular workout for yourself, why not involve your kids with you? Go out, take them for a walk, or teach them aerobics. It’ll be a fun activity for you and your kids. Teach them jumping jacks or play skip rope with them. Being active doesn’t have to be a solo thing. Exercising with your kids is a healthy practice. Going out exposes them to the outside environment where they can socialize, see nature, and have fun.

 

  1. No gym? No problem

You don’t have to be in the gym to be healthy. In the comfort of your own home, you can do your own fitness program. Invest in high-quality training shoes and comfortable workout clothes. You can also invest in fitness equipment like an exercise ball, dumbbells, and yoga mats. If your house can accommodate it, you can stretch it further and get a treadmill or a stationary bike too. There’s no stopping you from living an active lifestyle even when you’re mostly indoors.

 

  1. Prepare healthy foods

Eating the right foods is essential in keeping a healthy body. As they say, exercise is not enough. Proper diet and right supplementation plays a big role in strengthening the body and the immune system. Make sure your daily meals are filled with correct portions or protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Eat lots of green leafy vegetables and don’t skip on your fruits.

 

  1. Be disciplined

Of course, easier said than done. A lot of people get excited jump-starting their fitness regimen only to fall out of it in a matter of weeks. Consistency is key. Remember that you have to be strong, not only for your kids but also for yourself. Start slowly, if you’re not used to working out regularly, try doing it at least 2 times a week. Then when you’ve got the hang of it, strive for 3 times a week, until you can do it daily.

Halloween is almost here and what better treat than Welch’s Fruit Snacks? We received some party treats and decorations to have a Pre-Halloween party and it was a blast! The balloons were a hit (wish I had taken pictures but the teens decided to pop them way too quickly in a balloon popping contest)! The biggest hit was the Welch’s Fruit Snacks since they are delicious and also shaped like Halloween characters such as a ghost and a Witch!

The new delicious Bourbon Charburger and sandwich would not be complete without the perfect side. For even more delicious, smoky Bourbon flavor, Habit fans can enjoy the new savory Bourbon BBQ-Spiced Fries ($2.50).
