Since sharing my “Positively Fit” blog post and passion for a healthy lifestyle, I have been sharing tons of workouts, tips and tricks on my new fitness Instagram account (@official_positively_fit) and I am LOVING it!!! The fitness community on Instagram is huge and incredibly supportive. It’s been so fun finding new people to follow as well as meeting new followers to join me on this journey. One of my favorite and frequent posts to share are ways to workout while doing regular household and daily task…like brushing your teeth for example.
That’s right, I’ve been sharing #toothbrushworkouts as well as others! No time to do a full workout DVD or head to the gym? No problem! You brush your teeth right!? Perfect! See how easy it is to squeeze in a little strength routine?
Coming at ya this morning with another #toothbrushworkout! 😁 No spare time to squeeze in a workout today? ⌚No problem! Here's an ab workout you can do WHILE brushing toir teeth, and I know you'll have time for that. • -15 cross knee strikes on both sides -10 standing side crunches on both sides -20 high knee lifts with a twists -10 standing leg extensions on both sides • Tada! Ab workout + minty fresh breath = a great way to start your day! Happy Tuesday everyone!
That’s not all though… gotta fold clothes?
Laundry? Kids? Pets? Long to-do list getting in the way of your workouts? No free time? No ALONE time? NO PROBLEM! • I am alone with both my toddler and newborn the majority of the time, so finding time in my day to do a long workout alone is usually impossible. I am always looking for new ways and times to squeeze in some exercise. • In this video we are jamming out to a preschool playlist on Pandora, folding laundry, talking to the baby in the bouncer and feeling the burn! #multitaskingatitsfinest Us women are seriously capable of SO much!
Unload the dishwasher?
Being home with a toddler and a baby all day everyday means I am ALWAYS multi-tasking. The Husband had a rare evening home, so while he entertained the little ones, I cleaned the kitchen AND got in a nice leg workout! #dishwasherworkouts are a thing, right? • Yep, Husband snuck in a little booty smack as he walked by. What can I say…I've got nice buns. 😂🍑 • #pressplay to hear the Trolls soundtrack we are constantly jamming to these days. 💃Anyone else's kid obsessed? At least its good dance music! 🤷♀️
Hold a fussy baby?
While visiting family in Texas a couple of weeks ago, we shared a house with a total of 10 people! I decided to utilize the back porch for an afternoon glute workout 🍑. My 2 month old wasn't happy without me, so it turned into a baby-wearing workout too! 👶 • 1 Minute of Each Move! – wide leg squats -alternating curtsy lunges -lunge kick & reach (both sides) -standing side leg lifts (both sides) -back angled leg lifts (both sides) *Repeat 3 times! • Remember, it's not always easy, but it's certainly possible to find the time and place for a quick workout! (Even if it means sweating your booty off in the Texas heat! Yowza! 😥) #travelworkout
#noexcuses Being active everyday is vital to tour health. It improves cardio health, boosts mental health, burns extra calories and helps relieve fatigue. So, even when it doesn’t seem like it. I promise you can find time to move.
Need a few more ideas?
-Wear ankle weights while completing daily chores.
-Set a timer and do 1 Minute of exercise for every 10 minutes of cleaning/working/cooking.
-Pump up the jams and get your groove on while getting ready in the morning.
-Hold various yoga poses while watching TV.
-Do crunches, jumping jacks or squats during commercial breaks.
Do all of this and you won’t need that gym membership anymore!
Now, I love a challenge so, PLEASE, tell me… what task would you like me to add some exercise to next? Let me know in the comments and I will do my absolute best to creat something Insta-worthy!
