Post-its all over the place with people you need to call or things you need to do. Your laundry basket is exploding and you need to really make an effort to find a clean outfit for your kid to wear to school tomorrow. You have no clue what you´re going to make for dinner tonight so it´s probably going to be pizza (again). You have some deadlines at work but due to the mess in your agenda and in your head, you don´t really remember which ones exactly. Your mother-in-law´s birthday is coming up and you need to buy a present. And the list goes on and on. Sounds familiar?
In the last two weeks, we looked at the first and second part of a three-part series of quick and simple workout for busy moms that you can do from anywhere and anytime. So today is time to share the last workout and see how we can fit this in our week.
Last week I shared the first of a series of quick and simple workout for busy moms that you can do from anywhere and anytime. And I have to say, despite it being super fast I still had to be very conscious about not skipping this workout. Although I aimed to do this in the morning before starting work, there were days (a lot actually) where I didn´t get to it before going to bed. So yes I did it, but I need to work more on getting this as part of my routine.
Before becoming a mom, I was quite sporty, my week usually involved field hockey training (twice), a couple of times to the gym and a few runs. Boy, did things change! The past year I have been sponsoring my gym and the field hockey club for hardly going and my running shoes have mainly been collecting dust. Busy, tired and completely caught up in the daily chaos that this motherhood gig brings, working out was usually the first thing I would skip. So after one year of workout failing, I figured it was time for a change and for finding a way that would allow me to do some working out amidst this daily mom chaos.
