Mama Maintenance {move it mommy!}

Ok have you ever woke up one morning running late and having a million things to do? Well yesterday morning was that morning for me. Usually my morning routine is wake up at 6, prepare Little K’s work for school, wake my older boys up( at 630) so they can get ready for school, kiss them bye onto the bus at 7 and then off to get my hour workout in till about 8.

Didn’t happen that way yesterday because for one I didn’t hear my clock alarm and then on top of that I had to be at my middle son’s Christmas party at 9. So instead of my normal hour workout– I had to cut things short and race off to the gym and do a quick 30 minute workout.

Which consist of :

Got in a good sweat, cleared my mind and was ready for the rest of the day!

Even if you have limited time– always make time for mommie :) Remember if we don’t keep our maintenance up then the whole machine breaks down ( family)

So what’s one of your “go to” workouts when you’re crunched for time? Please share, thinking about starting a linky party for next week :)

Also remember only 30% is the gym and the other 70% is nutrition— so take a look at my Work IT tab and see what  we use as a family and provide our clients. It’s the best thing popping:)

  1. I’m a runner, so no matter how crunched for time I am, running works. I just alter how far I run or how long I train, according to my schedule. Unfortunately, the past few weeks I have done zero running or exercise at all. Not lack of time. Lack of motivation. And I hate feeling the way I do without it. It’s amazing how much my body actually craves the runners high. I’ll be back at it next week for sure. :)

  2. You hit the nail right on the head! We must make time to take care of ourselves. I do 2 days of workouts with the EA Active Wii Program about 30 mins each and the 3rd day I do 30 mins of yoga. I am vegan so I am very careful about what I eat. Timely post!

  3. My favorite thing to do is the elliptical. You can push yourself as much as you want to. It’s low impact, but you get a great workout.

  4. My favorite workout is a fierce and fast Crossfit routine. The sprints, plyometrics, and down-n-dirty strength training protocols can all be done right from home — no gym membership necessary.

    I went to a Crossfit gym about 3 times to learn the routine and what I needed to do. The trainers there told me exactly how to set up my equipment at home with minimal cost. All I really spent was $25 on a chin-up bar. My husband made my plyo-box out of scrap plywood and the rest is just me.

    I’ve always been an avid athlete, but got bored with the same ole, same ole. Crossfit will give any mom (or dad) a gut-wrenching, fierce workout in a short amount of time that gets results.

  5. Great site! It is so important to take care of yourself so you can fully take care of your family!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are more than welcome to link up my Exercising with Baby post!

  6. This is great! I can’t make it to the gym anymore with time constraints, so I do things nearby, like running up the hill, and kettle bell exercises at the end of the day watching news. I don’t get to these every day, but something is better than nothing right now!

    Hey, feel free to come link this up on our Fitness page. We have an ongoing hop, and you’re welcome to link up as many posts as you want. We’re trying to have a resource, with a variety of ideas all in one place. Here’s the link of you’re interested!:

  7. I confess, I’ve been neglecting my health. Haven’t worked out in quite a while and I feel sluggish already. Hope I get to add some exercise into my 2012.

  8. With 4 kids, going to the gym does not work for me anymore. But as soon as I put my oldest on the bus I go push play for one of my work out DVD’s. I have had great success with P90X. But when I am crunched for time I do a quick 20 minute Turbo Jam video or one of the Rockin Body workouts with Shaun T.

    • I have four kids too– P90X is great– I was doing it for awhile– probably will start back next month.
