Wk 10Working out with your kiddo around can be tough. I know.  I have a 5 and 3 year old that just LOVE to get right in the middle of it. Well, instead of fighting it – why not invite it in?  I wanted to give you free access to Week 10 of my Summer of Fun for Mommy and Me Curriculum. For free.  This is one week of activities you can do together to sneak in reading, writing, math, and science activities that all revolve around the theme of health.  AND bonus! There is a Mommy and Me Workout that you guys can do together that will leave you sweating.  You can also check out the fun crafts and healthy themed snacks to make together.

Hope this makes you have a win/win day.  You get a workout, kiddos get to play and we all go to bed happy and no one cries about bed time right?

Playground Workout!

playgroundworkoutI saw this article and I loved it? Why? Because sometimes life gets in thew ay and we don’t have time for a trip to the gym or boot camp class or even down to the basement to work out. But – we do have time to let the kids burn off some energy at the playground. SOOOO why not use that time and this article has some great ideas I had never thought of before!

Try these out!

As you can see from the pic I tried some ab moves (and so did Elli). Those were HARD. Next time I go I’m going to try the abs on the swing and the slide sit ups!

25 Minute Stroller Workout #1

strollergroup1Ok the weather is getting wonderful and many of my clients are asking for Mommy friendly outdoor work outs. So here you go! This work out can be done in conjunction with the other work outs in the Stroller Workouts series or can be done individually.

For this, you do each of the 5 moves for one minute and you repeat the entire circuit 5 times.  Ok wait – let me clarify. You repeat it as many times as you want. Maybe you only have 5 minutes. Then you do this one time and you be GLAD you made the choice to get a good 5 minute work out in. Maybe you JUST HAD your little one – work up to repeating.  You do what works for you.

For your warm up!  Walk for 3 minutes then jog for 2 minutes
*Modification – run for the entire 5 minutes or walk the entire 5 minutes*

For the squats:  face your baby and be sure to keep the knees over the ankles!

For the push ups: knees or toes. Want to make it interactive? Tap that stroller or little baby foot each time you come up (adds in a balance component)

Sit ups:  come up and tap stroller and back down you go!

High knees:  bring them up and go as fast as you can for one minute facing the stroller

Then walk or jog for one minute before starting again!

Sweat it out Mama!
