Below Are 5 Back To School Fitness For Moms
This holiday weekend led us right into the heart of “Back to School” season. Which means more stress and less time for busy moms.
There is no better time than NOW to take a step back and either create a plan that works for you OR reevaluate the plan you have been following, make some adjustments so you can continue to see results.
Think about this:
We expect our children to learn and follow a new routine.
We expect our children to recount the days lessons.
We expect our children to challenge themselves.
We expect our children to recover from the day’s adversities.
We expect our children to learn from their mistakes.
Why not expect the same of ourselves?
Fitness For Moms is just as important.
We’ve motivated our children to begin a new school year, so
share some of that motivation with yourself!
1. Avoid Morning chaos
Prep it all the night before. Mornings do not have to start off stressing you to the max. With a little planning, everyone’s day can begin with confidence and a smile.
Take the time to eat the most important meal of the day. Moms are notorious for skipping this meal for they are simply too busy taking care of everyone else. Do something different this school year and fuel your body each and every morning.
My favorite: egg white omelet, yogurt and blueberries. Quick, satisfying and super energizing.
3. Mark your calendars
You schedule your children’s events, schedule your workouts, they are just as important.
4.. Eliminate Afternoon Cravings
Enjoy an after school snack with your children. Fresh fruit and a handful of nuts is a healthy and energizing snack for everyone.
5. Get Moving
Kids need 60 minutes of physical activity every day….don’t expect that need to be met at school…ensure it happens and join them! Take it outside after school. Tyler’s favorite back yard game – Kick Ball. We somehow manage to make him roll on the ground in laughter every time.
When you take a step back and identify the simple steps you can take each day to incorporate a fit and healthy lifestyle, it becomes 10 times more manageable.
September is your month to vamp up your fat loss efforts and notice a positive change to how you look and feel this fall.
