She {hearts} Mini Workouts

We ALL know we need to make fitness a priority, but man, some days finding making the time seems impossible. If you’re caring for little ones it’s just that much harder. I have found that most of us have an “all or nothing” approach to fitness.  That means, if you can’t make it to the gym or do a full workout at home, you skip your workouts entirely for that day. Sound familiar? It’s okay, I’ve been there too. But doing that can easily turn into a habit and you find yourself frustrated and back at square one.

What you should do, is try to get in at least a few mini workouts in.  Something is truly better than nothing. 

“What are these “mini workouts?”, you ask?

Short bursts of physical activity. 

I do what I call my “mommy workouts.”  Even if I know I’m going to the gym that day, I’ll do these mini workouts to make sure I don’t miss out, just in case life throws me a curve ball later in the day. Also, they’re fun and really boost my mood!

It all adds up.

The surgeon general recommends 30 minutes of exercise per day, 5 days a week. And it doesn’t have to be 30 consecutive minutes a day. So, these can get you where you need to be.

Some of my favorite places to get inspiration for these workouts are on YouTube. I’ll watch them and write down something I wanna try, maybe practice it with the video, and then do it on my own. I might have music playing while I’m cleaning house or doing laundry, and I’ll literally just stop and workout. Then get back to my task.

I hope you’ll start moving more. The benefits of physical activity are numerous, and we all know it.

Here’s some of my current go-to’s, but you can find a ton of vids. Watch several, then bookmark them for later.

No need to spend money right now. Just start moving, changing your life one mini workout at a time. Good luck!


Please listen to your body, and confirm with your doctor before starting this or any fitness regimen.
