Best Ways Moms Can Sneak Exercise into Busy Schedules

We all know we should exercise at least three times a week, but how many moms actually get around to doing it? Between work, school, and after-school activities, who has time for the gym? Busy moms around the world can sympathize with this plight. However, business shouldn’t get in the way of you staying healthy. So here are several suggestions that would help you include exercise in the weekly schedule:
Learn Equipment Free Exercises 
It takes a lot of time to go to the gym and follow a faithful workout? But exercising is not all about using a treadmill or the rowing machine. There are excellent exercises you can do at home, right in your bedroom, between 15 to 30 minutes each day. These exercises save time without compromising the quality of your workout. 

You may already know some of these equipment-free workouts, such as squats, push ups, yoga, and even just skipping rope. You only need to get a fitness mat to do something like a stomach crunch. To save time, earn more about exercises that allow you to use your own body weight as resistance. These can be hard to learn, but the benefits are enormous not just in terms of burning calories, but also in terms of saving time. And, if you're going to practice on your tennis game, consider buying a tennnis ball machine.

Exercise When You Have Other Sweat-Inducing Things to Do
Don’t have time to shower twice a day? Try exercising around the time you do things like cleaning, so you don’t have to spend extra time showering. You can also use activities like cleaning as warm ups for weightlifting, squats, or yoga later. Kill two birds with one combined schedule. 
Try Simple Weightlifting for a Few Minutes at Home
Weightlifting is one of the best ways to lose weight and stay fit. Unfortunately, most women think you need to be at the gym to weightlift with equipment. You really don’t. You can save time driving to the gym by getting portable weights to keep at home.
Go ahead and get a dumbbell rack; you can probably keep it in a play room, a garage, or the yoga room. Exercise with the dumbbells a few minutes several times a week to start a weightlifting routine. Remember, doing something is better than doing nothing. 
Make Playtime with Kids Exercise Time
You don’t really need a fancy routine to shed extra pounds and stay fit. Just regular playing is actually great exercise that combines cardio, some weighted movement, and a whole lot of fun. If your children are still at that playing age, set aside a time several days a week to play. That is, actual playtime outside without any screens. 

Catching games with running involved, tennis, football, volleyball—any of these classic games or more would do as weekly exercise. You can also bond will children during this time. What’s more, playtime with kids can never get boring the way gym can be, where following a routine feels like a chore after a while. 

You can choose among the above suggestions depending on your preferences and time available. At the same time, remember to set rest days and get plenty of sleep each night. Don’t forget to eat healthy, or you would just regain all the excess weight you worked hard to lose.
