Once you become a stay a home parent, your main job is to look after the home and finding fun things to do with your children to keep them happy. I know exactly how hard it can be to stay fit and try to squeeze workouts in when you can. However in this day and age you really don’t need to travel to the gym to keep fit. There are plenty of other ways that you can use your time correctly not to miss out on a moment with your children. Here are my ways to help you to live a better lifestyle and become a healthier person.
Exercise With Your Children
By simply combining an activity for your children and something that is active enough for you to get a workout can do this. This could involve taking part in some outdoor activities or even playing football on the green. Whatever it is be sure to make it fun for both you and your children. Another great option is to take a parent baby yoga class if your children are young enough. This is a great way for you to bond with your children whilst still keeping fit.
Make sure that you are still getting all the food you need. Not eating enough food can be worse than eating too much. The amount you eat depends on your goals so be sure to contact your personal trainer to get advice on your diet first. An easy way to eat healthy is to make sure your family all does it together. This way you will not be tempted to eat any food that’s bad for you.
This is important because you will not always have a huge amount of time to workout so sometimes you might have to cut it down and just do a quick workout. This could involve an abs blast workout or even just focus on a specific body part eg legs.
This can also be done by taking advantage of any moment you might have when the children are asleep. Make sure to fit in your workouts around your children as you don’t want to sacrifice time with your children.
