How to stay fit during family time

There are countless articles explaining why you should work out or why you don’t have time to workout. Everyone has a valid reason–it’s called LIFE. LIFE HAPPENS.

Trying to entertain small children while working during the day is a challenge. Trying to drag a toddler with you to the gym so you can workout–pure hell!! One of my daughters favorite movies is Frozen.

When you’re trying to fit in family time after working all week and the only thing you really want to do is just lie on the couch and be left alone, lay back, throw those legs up and do a few bicycle kicks. The best part of this is getting the family involved, especially if you have kids who love mimicking everything you do anyway. Try these exercises below. These moves will get the blood pumping and excite the kids as they wait for the next song. If you’re lucky by the end of the movie they’ll be too tired to do anything else except go to sleep!!

Before I continue, I want to say these are my own personal thoughts and experiences. Everyone is different-please consult a doctor or medical professional if you feel your anxiety has worsened or if you are having other uncontrollable thoughts.

Healthy Pizza Recipe For Families

I love pizza!! It’s my second favorite food next to tacos. Usually it’s hard for me to get everyone in the family on the same page when it comes to toppings, but lately we’ve all been managing to like the same things (finally). Luckily there is no shortage of healthy pizza recipe options on the internet. And when I couldn’t find anything, I would just make it up as I go along.

Living in an area with a ton of mom and pop pizza shops I still find that making my own pizza at home is the best way to go. It gives the kids something to do when they’re helping, plus everyone gets exactly what they want!!
