No one bothered to warn me that one weight gain was a side-effect of pandemic life…alas here we are. My friends and I have been commiserating about tight clothes, feeling beyond tired, and just wanting to put on a fuzzy robe, pour a glass of wine, and eat #allthecarbs.
Now that we know that quarantine 15 (or 30…) is a real thing…what are we going to do about it?
One of the few things that kept me sane after the birth of baby number five was my Peloton bike. Committing to a regular sweat session was not only good for my body but also incredibly cleansing for my mind and soul. I relied on a short daily break to focus on something other than all of the noise, to-dos, chaos, and anxiety that is…being a mom to five kids. I know what you’re thinking…workouts are hard with kids.
Believe me, I get it.
But, I want to tell you something (and please believe me on this one).
Dear mamas of the world, it’s perfectly okay to take care of yourself. In fact, you should. We aren’t talking about weekend trips or spa days (though those things are perfectly fine), we’re talking about maintaining your body, mind, and soul with a short at-home sweat session…and doing so unapologetically.
Regular workouts will help improve energy levels; potentially reduce health issues; improve mobility and flexibility; help you sleep; help control your weight AND your mood. Whew. Who doesn’t want (and need) all of that??
So, please, know that taking a little time for you while your kids entertain themselves (safely) or nap, isn’t hurting a dang person (including your husband or your kids). The laundry, dirty dishes, and work will be there as soon as you’re finished and refreshed. Your kids will be better off when you lead by example and take care of your body.
If you follow me on social media, you know I’ve been in a long-term relationship with my Peloton bike. And, while I don’t intend to break that bond any time soon…it’s time to switch things up a little bit.
In fact, my body is craving a change. Can you relate to that?
On December 1st I’m going to dig deep with one of the world’s top celebrity trainers (also someone that I’m proud to call a dear friend).
