Being a parent is hard enough, why should losing weight be just as hard! Here are simple strategies you have been waiting for to reclaim your body!
We have all been there. The need to quickly drop those pounds for an upcoming event or the fact that your pants are just getting too tight just starts to settle in way too deep. What if there was a way to lose those pounds without feeling like you are going to be in a ball and chain for the next couple of weeks? Come with me as I divulge to you, easy everyday ways that anyone including you can drop those pounds while having the fun you deserve!
Get into shape with your pooch!
Your dog will love all the extra walks, and you will love the slimming benefits! With leash in hand, smile on your face, you and your dog tackle all the local parks, trails, or just cruise though an interesting neighborhood. While toning up and giving your dog a workout all the while, you may just find and connect with people doing the same. The possibilities are endless!
Bring along the kiddies!
Talk about quality family time! Not only is that weight melting off your waist line but it is quality time you can share with your family. Get creative with family time. Anything from a peaceful nature walk to a game of basketball, or even swinging in a park can burn calories. Bring along a camera and make a picture diary and arrange all the events ahead of time. You will begin to drop weight while being the parents of the year!
Become the cook you always wanted to be!
Who says eating healthy has to taste bad or even be boring? Not you that’s who! You will be blazing through new dishes, introducing your children to new flavors around the world and impressing your spouse which has benefits all of their own. These are all waiting along with your new cooking prowess! I see someone being the hit of a summer cookout, party, or family gathering with energy to spare for the volleyball game. Hey someone has to show the kids how it’s done!
Let’s face it, family life is tough on the libido and body. You’re a hard working, loving parent who gives a lot and it can take its toll. You’re not alone, and also not powerless! You deserve that toe curling electricity to be recharged! To start, write down your goals, where you want to be and how you want to feel. This is for your eyes only, so be as detailed as you need. Not only will your spouse dig the new you, when you show him or her your secret plan all along, you had better make sure you guys are grounded from the electricity! Time to call the baby sitter, Friday night just became date night!
These are a few of the creative ways you can make getting into shape fun. A journey you or you and your spouse can work at and accomplish together. Sparks fade with time, and family life is tough. Just remember that animal instinct that got you here to begin with. You will do just fine I assure you. Life should be fun, and you deserve it. Now go claim that body that’s rightfully yours!
