Are your kids the reason you don’t work out?

Sometimes we think that our kids hold us back from getting in shape. The truth is that our excuses actually do. Where there is a will- there is ALWAYS a way. I now include my kids in my in-home and outside workouts. No sitter required for this single mom!

YES working out makes us look good on the outside – but it also:

1. Reduces stress anxiety and depression
2. Reduces risk of many diseases
3. Protects from falls and injury
4. Makes for a better love life
5. Makes you happier
6. Increases energy
7. Sets the example for children
8. Slows down the aging process
9. Builds your immune system
10. Builds your confidence

By the way not all workouts are created equal. If you have a stressful life you should not be doing something like cross fit because you may not see the results you desire because you are adding more stress to your body which can actually harm you and your immune system; just as running is not for everyone. Your body needs a good balance of fitness and nutrition that is fine tuned to your unique needs for optimum results.

Once you find that balance and do away with excuses – you will see many of the 10 things mentioned above magically improve.

Happy self-care everyone! I know it’s not easy – but is so worth it.
