A few years ago, I would never work out at home. I’d say there were too many distractions.
Now I ONLY workout at home and I have MANY distractions. Or should I say one particular almost three year old distraction…named Jack!
For me, working out at home has been the only way for me to stay consistent. Does going to a gym, having time to myself and the ability to focus solely on my workout sound wonderful? Sure! But it isn’t realistic for me right now and I try to make the best with what I have. Not spending the time getting Jack and myself ready for the gym, driving there and getting him settled in the daycare helps me to make my workouts actually happen.
I can wear whatever..sometimes my pajamas, no sneakers most of the time and I get done what I can get done. Some days are better than others, but I always remind myself that something isn’t nothing and being consistent has always made the difference.
I love that I can set a good example for my son. Whenever I workout, he usually joins me…or jumps on me which just makes my workout even more intense!
Below is a great workout to do when you are short on time, that you can do anywhere and you can incorporate your kiddos….especially if they leave you no choice!
Enjoy and have a lovely, well-deserved Mother’s Day!
