The title of this week’s post could also be “Five Ways to Sneak in Exercise When You Have Kid(s)” (it was a toss-up – let me know which one you think should have won!).
If you’ve got one child or three, you probably find yourself with less time (or at least less time flexibility) to exercise than you did in your pre-kid life (also known as “BC” – “before child(ren)” – welcome to “AD: after dependent(s)). Going to the gym at 5am used to actually be a totally normal occurrence in my life (weird, I know). Now sleep is more precious than gold (on the other hand, I know some parents who have embraced early-morning workouts in parenthood, since they’re up with the kids anyway!). Or maybe scheduling didn’t matter so much – you could leave the house on a whim, totally unsupervised (you AND the house). Now it’s major-league level logistics to coordinate who is doing what, where, when and with whom.
I’m here to offer up some strategies to get you (or keep you) moving. Fitting into your pre-kids wardrobe is a great money-saver (and ego-booster), because time and money both seem to disappear more quickly when there are little people in the household (and no, I don’t mean Leprechauns!).
