Fit Habits for Busy Mom

Fit habits for busy moms

Given that moms are usually everything to everybody, it’s no wonder it’s a struggle to take care of ourselves. Here are some simple, realistic fit habits for busy moms – ways you can be healthier on a daily basis by making small changes, one day at a time.

Write Down Your Workouts

Make a brand new workout schedule every single week. Not only will it keep you more motivated, but it will make it more difficult for you to not show up. I prefer using my iCalendar and setting alerts to go off when it’s time to push play. In the big scheme of my day, 30-45 minutes is not that much time to take away from other things and people and I get so much out of it. Worth it!

Prep Healthy Food Ahead of Time

Keep your diet on track by washing, slicing, and dicing veggies and fruits ahead of time. If they are ready to eat in the refrigerator and ready to grab for meals on the go, your diet will stay on track. My favorite foods to prep ahead of time are: carrots, celery, berries, grapes (great when frozen in the summer time!), hard-boiled eggs, pre-measured nuts, bell peppers, and grapefruit. I also bake chicken breasts and make some homemade mayo to have for chicken and egg salad.

Eliminate All or Most Refined Sugar

This probably seems like a no brainer, but it’s the simplest way to dramatically improve your health quickly, lose weight faster, and feel better sooner. Read your labels, drink only water, and limit take out & fast food.

Avoid BLT’s From Your Child’s Plate

Ohhh those bites, licks, and tastes! BLT’s add up quickly and are so mindless that it’s hard to even know they are happening before it’s too late. If you find yourself ravenous during your kiddos’ meal/snack time, grab some prepped snacks out of your refrigerator and eat mindfully. Just because you grab a bite while clearing their plates, doesn’t mean it doesn’t count. Don’t sabotage your diet unconsciously, that’s just not fun!
