A BUSY MOMS WORKOUT. NO GYM REQUIRED.
Exercise is a big deal. It is that energizing force that makes you look good. It makes you feel good. It is that chunk of private time that allows you to turn off that twitter feed crashing through your brain and just tune out. Or, get creative. But, for most moms, such decompression is a distant memory. As a mom on kid duty, physically getting to a gym is the challenge. It’s impossible to go first thing in the morning. It’s impossible to go at the end of the day. If you are a stay at home mom with help, this may not be an issue for you, But for the working mom and mom without help, gym time is one of those things that gets moved to the bottom of the to do list.. As my once pert body parts started to flabbify, I made a resolution to stage my return to the gym. But–how? My time crunch was not going to change. So, I needed to find a way to boost my metabolism within the constraints of my lifestyle. What I discovered is that t a gym is not actually required to get a good schvitz going. If you are creative, you can craft an effective workout anywhere and at anytime. All you need is a doorframe, a chair, a playground ball, hand weights and resistance bands. Oh, and dose of determination.
