Fit it in! #Mamavation

I have struggled with this soooo much and still do today.... Finding the time to exercise!

Today was just super busy I didn't get any workout time in. I did do 30 leg lifts on each leg while I washed dishes, lol. Last year I did c25k and did it first thing in the AM and that worked great for me! I would drop off Yvette at school, go jog, come home, make breakfast and by that time Eliada, my 4 year old, would be up and eat breakfast and start the day. But now, Eliada is wide awake by 7am! I do have a jogging stroller but I so need to fix that darn tire. I think hubby needs to step it up a notch and help me out here, right?!

What I am doing right now is just fitting in exercise whenever I can! Lately I've been working out around 2pm, before I pick up my girls from TV, as long as I've done dishes and swept the floor. Housework kind of get in the way. The other time I usually have it while dinner is cooking. I can do about 10-15 minutes of strength or cardio. I have some ideas pinned on Pinterest, so you can go check that out. I also love to turn to youtube and do FitnessBlender workouts whenever I can. Oh and YOGA! Yes, I have been able to get some stretching in in the morning and my oldest has really started enjoying yoga as well, so she comes up to me and say, "Yoga time!" It's great!

So, yeah... my problem is putting fitness in front of housework! How do you do it? Do you have any suggestions?!

Check out the #Mamavation G+ hangout on "Fitting Fitness In Your Life." 

My goal is to do my workouts before I pick up the girls from school, that has been working for me so far. 


 And yes... I'm putting out the "What's your excuse?" viral photo! lol I was so excited a month after giving birth that I was back to my pre-baby weight, and then it slowly started gaining! Ahhh!


  1. Fitting it in is hardest for me during the winter, when it's dark and cold at the times I'm home and can exercise. My favorite exercise is running - outside. If I had a treadmill, I'd use that... For now, if I can squeeze anything in, it's at night after the kids are in bed.

  2. Great job on finding times to workout, sometime we just have to do what we can when we can, those 10 mins here and there soon add up

  3. To be honest, I'm looking around at a messy house which happens a lot. I'm the opposite - I let my housework slip so that I make it to my gym classes. I guess I tens to clean 10 minutes before friends come over ;)

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
