I will be the first to admit that I am not fitness buff or fitness connaisseur.
In fact, when it comes to working out, I would always blame the fact that I didn’t have time for it on my kids. I mean, four kids is a valid excuse, right? Eh, I didn’t think so, but it didn’t stop me from trying.
When it comes to staying in shape, we all want to (or try to) in one form or another. Staying consistent with small children can be a challenge, however, staying fit while pregnant isn’t the easiest thing either and comes with a whole new set of challenges.
1. Fresh air
2. Greenscapes raise serotonin level
3. Sensory stimulation
4. Increases well being
5. Sun exposure increased vitamin d and optimizes hormone levels
Solo outdoor exercise ideas
These are also some great recommendations (with your doctor’s approval of course!).
- Group Sports (I recommend kickball)
Keeping fresh when I need it most
Staying active is pretty easy when you are chasing after rambunctious tots all day long. However, there are days where I end up staying in my workout clothes pretty much all day long, after leaving the gym (yeah I know, sounds ugh, but hitting the gym at 5 am before the kids wake up is already a daunting task in itself).
The 104 Degree temps can wreak absolute havoc on my body. Before I exercise I make sure that I am using Degree Women Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant.
UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant helps to protect against white marks and those ugly yellow stains on clothing!
It instantly goes on dry and gives me a cleaner feel, giving me up to 48 hours of protection against wetness and odor! Plus, the Motionsense Technology, automatically releases a burst of extra protection, whenever I move. Which if you have ever met my 3 year old, it’s an awful lot!
