30 Day Health & Fitness Challenge- The Mom Bod! Day 26

Workout_scheduler
As a mom you may find you are no longer “Number 1” in your life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come in a close second, make yourself and your goals a priority.

Day 26:Schedule yourself in! Do you find you’re having trouble fitting in your workouts? Are you skipping some of them? More than you’d like? It’s time to start scheduling yourself, your health and your happiness in! Treat your workout like an appointment, you’re less likely to skip out on your workouts if you have it penciled in. Would you skip a Doctor’s appointment? A hair appointment? A lunch date you’ve had planned for weeks? Probably not. So pull out that Google calendar, and block off the time you need.

Strapped for time? Of course you are!! You’re a mom! So try combining your strength and cardio workouts in one quick interval training session. Warm up for 5-15 minutes, do 1 minute of squats followed by 1-3 minutes  of jump rope/jumping jacks/knee jumps/high knees/dancing/tramping or even marching in place (possibly with a cranky baby in your arms). Then do another minute of another strength move, lunges, bicep curls, push-ups, tricep kick-backs, calf raises, planks and follow it up with more heart-pumping cardio. Continue this pattern for 20-45 minutes and don’t forget to cool down and stretch all muscles you worked.
