Easy Fitness Tips and Ideas for Busy Moms!
Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions for 2016? Is one of them to get healthier and more fit? That’s my goal. I’ve got some weight to lose but I don’t want to diet. I just want to eat healthier and have my little chocolate splurges as the need arises. Stop over indulging ANY time I please. Everything in moderation – is key for me, along with finding easy fitness tips to help!
The thing is though, we don’t always have that hour to fit into our day to workout. Or maybe we do, and we just use the excuse that we don’t have! Well — our Moms Check In gang is sharing some Easy Fitness tips for Busy Moms! Keywords here being BUSY MOMS!
There’s no excuse anymore. No reason why we can’t fit a bit of time to get some sort of workout in every day! Drop us a comment below or chat with us on social media using the hashtag #MomsCheckIn and #FitWithFebrezeInWash! Join us at our upcoming Twitter party on Feb. 4th at 1pm EST.

These are our our easy fitness tips for busy moms…
“I am not going to lie….I’m eating vanilla wafers dipped in Nutella right now for dinner. My tip is to get a step counter. It has really helped me keep myself accountable and to stay competitive. I find myself even roaming in my hallway and up and down our stairs if I’m short on steps! Also, try to do things together that are just more active. We’ve been playing a lot of laser tag this winter – it’s a great way to have fun and run around! We also like to do things like bowling, the indoor trampoline or bounce houses (talk about a workout! WHEW!) or just to the indoor pool at the YMCA.“

“Increase your water intake each day – it’s amazing how much better I feel when I’m properly hydrated. I aim for at least eight glasses a day. I have also increased my rest each night. I feel my best with 7-8 hours of sleep. It sets the tone for each day for me. I also started using portion sized containers to help me eat the right amount of each food group. In the morning, I spend a few minutes on our elliptical machine which helps me jump start my calorie burn for the day. I’ve also started looking for healthier ways to make some of our family’s favorite recipes. Little changes aren’t hard to implement and add up to a big change!“

“I’ve decided that 2016 is going to be THE year that I get myself in better shape. I’ve been eating healthier and I find that instead of setting big goals for weight loss, I set smaller goals. They’re easier to reach, obviously, and honestly…..it’s a marathon, not a sprint. I’ll get where I need to be, eventually! Once the kiddo is on the bus, I use my 7 minute workout app on my phone. It’s free to use, and there are several 7 minute workout apps you can choose from. Just search Google Play or the Apple App store. I do these on my super busy days. On the days that I have more time, I’ll do Zumba or hop on the treadmill for 30+ minutes. It’s all about carving out just a little time each day!!“

Everyone’s fitness routines are different based on when they have free time. For me, it’s in the mornings. For other moms, it’s a night. The one thing that we all DO have in common is that we sweat when we work out. We sweat a LOT. That stinky sweaty odor tends to cling to my spandex and stretchy workout clothes. It must just be the material, but washing alone with just detergent doesn’t always take the smell out.
Thankfully I became acquainted with Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator! This stuff is amazing! It gets out all kinds of offensive odors besides just sweat…like mildew, smoke, pet odors, and more! Pee-yew! All I have to do is add a little to my wash cycle, along with my regular detergent and voila! The stink is GONE!
It doesn’t just mask the odors either! It completely removes them from the fabric. If you don’t believe me, you can check out these over 500 5-star reviews from other customers! Make sure to grab your $2 coupon too, to save on your first bottle!
