Re: Looking for suggestions on my Physical Fitness
Moms are always the busiest people in the house. I find that putting exercise equipment in plain view works well for me. I figure if I can find time to watch TV, I can find time to exercise. The basement is a bad placement for the treadmill. We have our recumbant stationary bike right in front of the TV, a versa lift under the couch, and an ab swing in the hall way. So our house looks like a gym with all the exercise equipment and exercise videos....at least we are healthy. Also, there's the week-ends. My son's Sifu allows the moms to do Kung Fu along size their kids without charging extra. We go outside to play badminton, kickball, basketball, etc. with our son during the summer. During the winter we use fun exercise videos the whole family can do together. (Richard Simmons is one of them.) Sometimes I'll exercise while my son plays or draws. 20 min. here and there really add up. My mother-in-law puts in 30 min. of walking time in the morning, 20 min. at lunchtime, (She's retired.) and 30 min. at night. I've also formed a walking group where I work. We all get together and walk during our breaks instead of sitting around and talking. Exercise is hard to start, but once you start it you will find you have more energy and are tired less. Here's my schedule......
5:30AM - Get dressed and pack the lunches.
6:30AM - Wake up hubby and get son ready for school.
